There is evidence showing the Federal Reserve as ground zero for so many of our recent economic difficulties. Congressman Ron Paul and Senator Rand Paul have introduced legislation asking only one thing: Audit the Fed.
Would/Could you be comfortable if your personal bank kept every single thing about your account(s) secret from you? What if your employer didn't let you know what your paycheck was each payday? How about if someone owed you money and they tried paying you back with a copy of their electric bill? Sounds silly, doesn't it? Well, they work on debt. So it's actually more similar than most folks are comfortable admitting.
We need to audit their operations and stop allowing them carte blanche. To make the point better than I myself can, here's a message I just received from Rand Paul. Comments are open folks.
Dear Fellow Conservative,
I ran for the U.S. Senate to end the federal government’s out-of-control spending and solve our debt crisis.
But that can't be done until we tackle the source of the problem: the unaccountable Federal Reserve.
As long as Ben Bernanke keeps printing money, Barack Obama will keep spending it.
You and I need to end that right now.
And just like during my campaign, the establishment is stacked against us. But look at what has already been accomplished with you in our corner!
Please take a few moments to read the message below from Campaign for Liberty Vice President Matt Hawes and support C4L in this vital effort to rein in the Federal Reserve.
Senator Rand Paul
Trillions of dollars have been stolen from U.S. taxpayers.
You and I, right now, are seeing the worst plundering of a country's wealth in the history of civilization, led by an out-of-control Federal Reserve.
But you and I together CAN put a stop to it all.
With your help (including completing the petition to your representative and senators) today, Campaign for Liberty is ready to take the battle straight to the heart of the problem - the Federal Reserve itself.
Last Congress, we came close to enacting a full Audit of the Fed.
This Congress, with more Fed opponents put in office and the economy still reeling, we have our best chance ever.
But you must act today.
Just think about the scope of the problem.
The massive, outrageous amount of dollars recently committed to the economic bailouts totals:
More than the socialist New Deal...
More than the entire Iraq debacle...
More than the 1980's savings and loan mess... More than the Korean War...
Where will it all end?
It's time you and I put a stop to an out-of-control Federal Reserve.
And Ron Paul has a bill before Congress to do just that.
That's why it's vital you fill out your personal "Audit the Fed" petition in support of Congressman Paul's bill.
This bill, introduced in the House by Congressman Ron Paul and in the Senate by Senator Rand Paul, will finally pull the lid off the FED and expose its outrageous power grabs.
Now is the time to make sure your representative and senators feel the heat to support the Audit the Fed bill!
If you and I don't act today, I'm afraid this crisis will end with the economic ruin of every man, woman, and child in the United States.
Today, over 16 TRILLION in taxpayer dollars in bailouts and loans have been agreed to by Congress, the Bush and Obama Treasury Departments, and the out-of-control Fed.
So is it really any wonder more and more folks are starting to realize the Washington, D.C. establishment is hurtling us toward complete economic disaster?
Whether it's watching a phony "stimulus" package get rammed into law or seeing Congress pass a $700 BILLION bank "bailout," the American people are agitated and increasingly angry.
You saw the result of that anger in the Tea Parties last year and then in the November elections.
Statist, pro-Fed politicians were tossed out of office left and right!
That means it's a perfect time to unleash the pressure of MILLIONS of outraged Americans on the out-of-control Fed today!
So please agree to complete your petition urging your Representative and Senators to cosponsor and seek roll call votes on Audit the Fed - the first step toward ENDING THE FEDERAL RESERVE once and for all!
As I know you're aware, the Federal Reserve is shrouded in secrecy.
Its meetings are off-limits to the public.
Its inner-workings are off-limits to the public.
Fed leaders know coming clean with Congress and the American people on how they create money out of thin air would result in an anti-Fed firestorm.
So can you imagine the impact of a full-scale audit?
You and I will finally be able to show the American people that the Federal Reserve System leads to:
*** Constant economic crises - the housing crisis and the resulting chaos is just one example of an economic bubble created by centrally-planned interest rates and money manipulation;
*** The destruction of the middle class - as fuel, food, housing, medical care and education costs soar, everyone who is NOT on the government dole is forced to make do with less as the value of their money slowly decreases;
*** Currency destruction - history shows us that riots, violence, and full-scale police states can result when people finally realize fiat money isn't worth the paper it's printed on and REFUSE to accept it.
That's why your commitment to helping pass the Audit the Fed Bill - and helping Campaign for Liberty fight this battle - is so vital.
Just a few years ago, there was no chance of passing any legislation like Ron Paul's Audit the Fed Bill.
So I guess there has been one "CHANGE."
You see, with the piling up of trillions of dollars in out of control "bailouts" of Wall Street and international bankers, even many politicians in Washington, D.C. want to show you they're "being responsible."
What better way for Congress to do this than by auditing the Federal Reserve to account for the trillions stolen from U.S. taxpayers?
More and more Congressmen are already feeling the pressure and are signing up to support this bill.
I've even received word Audit the Fed could move in the coming weeks in the U.S. House.
When that happens, you and I must be ready to fight.
There will be many battles you and I must wage over the coming months to take back our country.
But this one is set to rage in Congress in just a few short weeks.
And, it's both a bill we CAN pass and one that is vital to exposing the massive corruption and downright evil at the Federal Reserve.
You see, after regulating, taxing, spending, borrowing, and printing us into what looks like the worst recession in decades, establishment politicians and power brokers are assuring us they're working hard to "fix" our economic woes.
What is their solution?
You guessed it.
More of the same!
I'm convinced that if you and others will insist on Congress passing Audit the Fed, the votes will be there.
Then the question is whether Barack Obama will sign it.
But here's the thing: even if the Audit the Fed bill is vetoed by Obama, just forcing him to do it is a win/win situation.
Can you imagine how it will look in November when you and I tell the American people President Obama refused to even LOOK for the trillions of dollars stolen from the taxpayers?
Now, we just need to show Congress the American people demand action on Audit the Fed.
Here's how we plan to do that.
First, we're already busy contacting up to seven million activists nationwide through mail, phones, and email to generate petitions to the U.S. Congress demanding action on "Audit the Fed".
But that's just the beginning.
We'll work the talk radio stations and grant local media interviews to further turn up the pressure on Congress.
And a few days before the vote, if we have the resources, we'd also like to run hard-hitting targeted radio, TV, and newspaper ads.
This entire program is designed to send this one, CLEAR message to Congress - Any politician who votes against the Federal Reserve Audit should look for another job.
But such a massive effort won't be easy - or cheap.
So, in addition to your signed petitions, I also hope you'll agree to chip in a contribution of $10 to Campaign for Liberty.
If we don't take action, the America we see in just a few years could look far worse than even the one we see today.
Can I count on you to join the fight to AUDIT THE FED by filling out the Petition and chipping in a quick $10 contribution right now?
P.S. Please complete your petition DEMANDING your Representative and Senators cosponsor and seek roll call votes on the Audit the Fed Bill TODAY!
With federal spending at record levels, and TRILLIONS of new dollars flying off the printing presses, it's never been more important the Federal Reserve's abuses are exposed to the American people once and for all.
So along with your signed petition, please chip in a contribution of $10, $25 or even $50, to Campaign for Liberty TODAY!
