A very important bill is coming up in Congress soon, introduced by Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

During the next several months, Campaign for Liberty ’s No. 1 priority on the national level will be passing Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve: H.R. 1207, “The Federal Reserve Transparency Act.”

It’s obvious that we don’t know where our “borrowed” money is going. There is a majority of people in both major political parties that is afraid to oppose the Fed and will not if the voters don’t pressure them to do so.

The most influential voice against holding the big money people responsible is good ol’ Rush Limbaugh. We can always depend on him to scream “socialism” or “communism” at anyone wanting to control “our” monetary policy and corporations.

Certainly those two words induce paroxisms in the timid, ignorant and fearful among us. Maybe more of us should review some of our high school history or college political science course material.

It’s not like these words are such a mystery. I, personally, don’t like being treated with condescension or any other tomfoolery. When Rush, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and such give definitions of socialism, they studiously avoid giving the correct definitions and generally omit “fascism.”

When the interests of big business and government merge together, you have fascism. In our country, we have all of the influences of these political systems merged together into a sort of “corporatocracy,” a very real tyranny gained and maintained by the control of money. All of those words so scorned by Rush and the bunch, like socialism, populism and communism, have to do with the interests of workers, citizens in general, and public ownership and control of certain endeavors, like the postal service, the U.S. highway system, national parks, Social Security, Medicare, the U.S. military, the Smithsonian Institute and on and on and on.

Maybe paroxisms are not the appropriate responses to these demagogues.

This is easy to answer

If you ever visit Miami, Florida you will see all the Wall Street types driving around in Million dollar Bugatti Autos, Mega Yachts and large private jets thanks to the Tax Payers bail out money.

I remember before President Bush left office stating the Bailout is going to cost about one trillion dollars but President Obama and Hillary are claiming its going to cost $4 to $5 Trillion Tax payers dollars. Congress and the President stated they are printing money as fast as they U.S. Mint Printing press can. The people at the mint are all getting paid overtime for working 24/7.

And just today President Obama and Hillary both announce they are going to create new gun laws to prevent crime in Mexico. Let that thought sink in a moment. It is obvious Hillary and Obama were under the influence of some type of drug while uttering that statement. Hillary want to take all guns away from Law abiding citizens in the name of Drug Wars.

Thank you

in the "war on drugs". They are not gonna end this. There is way too much money to be made by taxation and bribes for them to stop. Law enforcement makes a killing at it too. Remember the classic line from the Cheech and Chong movie, uttered by Stacie Keech's character..."The bigger the bust, the better the boost." These are very lucrative to all who oppose drugs.

Go ahead punk, Make My Day!

Federal Reserve? WTF is the federal reserve? I do not recognize any federal reserve.. I do not use cash... I use only gold and silver coins.. I buy, sell and trade everything with gold and silver. It may sound expensive but in the long run you will save money because its impossible to tax people that trade in gold and/or silver...

Thank you
