Not sure what he can do but if anyone can do anything that's for the good of the people, it's him.

Awesome! So long as we don't revert to a Federal Reserve Gold Standard. Competing currencies I can handle. State or federal fiat currency I prefer (though I don't think Dr. Paul likes this idea. But strictly reverting the current system to precious metal backing may well be what the biggest banksters are counting on.
I've read that he wanted to audit the gold at Fort Knox to see if there is anything in there.
Yup. Though the audit of Fort Knox could easily be played as theatre (not so much by Paul, but by those in the Fort). If they can sneak it out, they can sneak it back in temporarily or pull some other ploy. That is, of course, if there has been shenanigans there to begin with.
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said he plans to introduce legislation next year to force an audit of U.S. holdings of gold.
Paul, a longtime critic of the Federal Reserve and U.S. monetary policy, said he believes it's "a possibility" that there might not actually be any gold in the vaults of Fort Knox or the New York Federal Reserve bank.
The libertarian lawmaker told Kitco News, a website tracking news about precious metals, that an audit was necessary to determine how much the U.S. maintains in gold reserves in case the government were to use gold to back the dollar.

No one as extreme as Ron Paul should be in a position of any power.
Steve Gibson on password policies[grc.com]: I mean, I don't get this change it every eight weeks. ... It's not as if passwords are traveling by camel after they've been stolen, going to the bad guys, and so there's, like, some weird eight-week window, like, oh, we're going to change your password so that the stale password no longer works. ... And all this does is make IT people despised because users, who are not dumb, they think, why am I - why do I have to do this? What problem is this solving?
The Federal Resevse needs to wake up.. The "Truth" is just starting to come out..
CHINA TO THE US: STOP WITH THE MONOPOLY MONEY
Washington is flooding financial markets with $600 billion of worthless dollars, hoping a rising tide of Monopoly money will somehow lift America out of recession. The Fed’s first QE effort was a fizzle.
The US government is stoking worldwide inflation in order to lower its outstanding debt by repaying creditors with depreciated dollars. The rest of the world is boiling angry at Washington.
Just before last week’s G20 economic summit in South Korea, China’s state credit agency publicly downgraded America’s credit rating and questioned US leadership of the world’s economy. http://ericmargolis.com/political...money.aspx
