An Answer to "Where have all the Hueys gone?"

In these days of "Corporate Communism", how come nobody is standing up against the Wall Street Welfare Queens? It's political red meat, but hardly anybody at all is kicking them where it hurts.

I'd say there are about two exceptions: Ron Paul (R-TX) and Alan Grayson (D-FL). Ron Paul has been at it for a while. Alan Grayson won a red district and has recently made the news for "Democrat with Balls"-style.

Paul and Grayson have teamed up on an "audit the Fed" bill. Some of the testimony has been very impressive:

Even some conservatives are giving him credit.

Other Republicans are scared stiff of a Democrat that actually stands up for what he believes in. Grayson is being attacked with unsourced allegations of antisemitism (in Florida? Please).

My favorite fighting words of Grayson: Republicans want to ban bacon!

Take the time to listen to some of his speeches and judge for yourself.

*Title Reference and stolen photo. More Huey, please.

UPDATE- One More:


Alan Grayson quotes Huey Long.

UPDATE 3- Yet more. Reublicans running scared...
