    I am confused.

    If you read and understand what Ron Paul's message is, I don't understand why he is not the Tea Party favorite.

    Actually, I don't understand why he is not the favorite of the "true Conservatives".

    Those that call themselves "true conservatives" claim to espouse less govt and freedom and profess full support of the Constitution.

    Why is the Tea Party not fully behind him? Isn't he the strict constitutionalist that "true conservatives" claim to want?

    Can someone on the far right explain why Ron Paul is not their guy?

    Mike Richards? Rifleman? Mountanman? Want to weigh in?

    @JoeBlow

    It's simple. He doesn't want to reward the military industrial complex by stealing your tax money to bomb and invade other countries to acquire their resources.

    If Ron Paul's foreign policy was "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran!", he would have probably beaten Willard hands-down during primary season.

    I don't fully understand it either JoeBlow. He's as conservative as it gets. As far as Mike Richards, Rifleman, and Mountanman ... do you really think they're not going to vote for a Mormon candidate?

    Deseret News: The Fed Reserve is perhaps the least understood, most independent government agency, but somehow you've made it a rallying cry. Do you think Congress will really win the power to audit the Federal Reserve?

    IMO and respectfully, Kathryn Wallace asked the above question incorrectly and I would have liked Ron Paul to make the correction by stating that the Federal Reserve is NOT a government agency. This is a common misconception. Actually the Fed is an independent and very private system of banks that have control over the US treasury.

    WHO OWNS THE PRIVATELY OWNED FEDERAL RESERVE?
    The privately owned Federal Reserve is not a government agency. The
    privately owned Federal Reserve Bank (The Fed) is privately owned by a group
    of primarily foreign bankers. In 1913, Congress sank America into eternal
    debt by giving the power to issue currency and control the American economic
    system to the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.

    Who are the owners or chief shareholders of the privately owned Federal Reserve?
    Originally,
    there were reportedly 203,053 shares of privately owned Federal Reserve
    stock, of which approximately 65% were owned by foreigners and approximately
    35%(72,000 shares) were:
    1. Rockefellers' National City Bank = 30,000 shares
    2. Chase National = 6,000 shares (currently Chase Manhattan and owned by
    David Rockefeller)
    3. The National Bank of Commerce = 21,000 shares (now known as Morgan
    Guaranty Trust)
    4. Morgans' First national Bank = 15,000 shares
    Interestingly, the total shares owned by Rockefellers interests equal
    36,000 shares and the total of Morgans' equals 36,000 shares.
    Although the privately owned Federal Reserve Act of 1913 provided the names
    of the owner banks be kept a secret, R.E. McMaster, publisher of the
    newsletter" The Reaper" discovered, through confidential Swiss banking
    connections, that the following banks have controlling interest in the
    privately owned Federal Reserve.

    Paul 8:41 is correct about Paul. To get the nomination, you need to have supported all previous wars, and express plenty of enthusiasm about FUTURE ones, too. Even then you need unlimited money AND must avoid using the word "libertarian", which the GOP only pretends to support.

    Per JDL...

    Refer to the SCOTUS case; Lewis v. United States (1982).
