Ron Paul has at least twice in the past several years introduced legislation to end the Fed and I know he's done it prior to that as well. See below, it doesn’t get any more straight forward than that.
HR 2755 http://www.opencongress.org/bill/110-h27....
HR 833 http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul504.....
He is a man of his word. To my knowledge these bills, unlike his more recent audit the fed bill (which got gutted), sadly received no co-sponsors.
He has also introduced the Free Competition in Currency Act in 2009, which is a backdoor way to end the fed. See this.
If he doesn't co-sponsor this bill it will only be over philosophical differences as the devil is in the details. Sound money in his eyes (right or wrong in your eyes) is not fiat money, but rather that backed by gold and silver or other similar competing currencies as he often talks about. Skull f#$K the man once a week if you must and if it makes you feel good if he doesn't co-sponsor this particular bill, but I think you might be more than a bit off base on your presumptions on this one based on the man's previous track record. In my mind eliminating debt based money is a definitely a good place to start, but I don't see how giving Congress unlimited printing power equates to sound money in any way shape or form, nor was that ever the intent of the Constitution as I understand it. I suspect Ron Paul would agree. At any rate I appreciate what it is you do. Keep it up.
