Dr. Paul is a strong Libertarian, and is highly opposed to government interference in the free market. The proposal you mention is in direct opposition to his core philosophy. Never in a million years would he support anything of the sort that gives the government power to revoke a corporate charter.
As I said, I admire his opposition to governmental tyranny, but I fear that without government power as a balance, excess corporate power and influence will simply replace excess government power and influence. (We see a hint of this today as our government representatives are bought and sold by corporate donors and serve to further the interests of these donors, rather than the people of the United States.)
So, Paul would do some good and clean out the corruption and shake up the system, but due to the power vacuum created and the struggles that would ensue, I'm not convinced that things would be any better 5 or 10 years down the road.
