Our electoral system is designed to squash anyone aside from a republicrat from running and winning the office of President.
If Ron Paul ( or anyone else) would have somehow gotten elected- he would already be dead as this is what happens to folks that mention they will abolish the Fed.
"On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business."
I think we all know how that ended up. Someone died and we still have the Federal Reserve "System".
