“Cute but no cigar. What has Paul done is the question?
Voting no on bills he KNOWS will pass, is not doing anything. He does support foreign aid for palestine (always vote yes) but no one else, I guess thats something.”
If you’re asking what kind of fundamental reforms is he responsible for, I’m not aware of any (though I haven’t researched it). I suppose in that regard Paul is as effective as Michelle Bachmann and Jim DeMint—it would take a lot more like-minded people to be able to outvote not only the Dims but the leftist, establishment Republicans. Unfortunately, we are still a long way from that. If you are a very conservative office holder, who would like the federal behemoth to spend only what is within its constitutional limits, and are surrounded by a majority who will spend any amount they please, voting “no” is about your only option.
Certainly voting “no” to huge spending by the federal monster is better than voting for new socialist programs like MediPill. Or do you disagree?

That is because he has not accomplished anything, except acquire as many earmarks as possible. He is not known as the earmark king for nothing. So as far as bringing home the pork he has done something. As far as doing anything about our debt he has done nothing. He never has and I doubt if he ever would.

Appeasement Paul has been Chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy Committee, the committee that oversees the Federal Reserve for almost two years. He has complained about the Fed, Reserve for about 20. In his time as chairman you do not think he had an opportunity to do something? He had the opportunity, but was unwilling to do anything.
Appeasement Paul talks big, does little.
Ron alterPaul is not a conservative.
Yes, he votes against bills he knows will pass AFTER he loads them up with earmarks.
alterPaul is a fraud.
