You don't have to endorse everything Ron Paul says to understand that the man knows his monetary and economic policies. I used to love seeing small and medium sized competitors bashing it out with the big kahunas. These days you have so much national and global consolidation that it's almost impossible to compete with such companies.
They don't consider it a monopoly because these companies are buying companies in different sectors. Either way the system needs to be overhauled like, yesterday.
