Obviously my letter did not have much impact.

In an article on Audit The Fed in today's Washington Post Judd Gregg says,

"Ron has his views, it's very strongly felt, and he's been pounding on this one 30-some-odd years," said Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.). "This is a very bad idea that's very foolish and incredibly destructive to our nation if it were to pass."

I wish Senator Gregg would explain why total transparency is such a bad idea and how it would be destructive to our nation. Is there something they are hiding Senator? Like maybe QE run wild, gold sold and leased, economic statistics cooked, markets manipulated, the PPT run wild, direct contacts between the government and the Goldman Sachs prop trading desk. Yes, I suppose if those things came out they might upset some people. Would it be bad for our nation? Well, I suppose it would be bad for those who have broken the law. Clearly long term it would be good because we would return to a gold standard. But short term there would be pain. However, there is going to be pain either way. Keynes said in the long run we are all dead. What an evil piece of shit. Yeah, he is dead but we have to contend with his charlatan economic theories.

This brings up an interesting issue. This economic system is going to collapse. Who gets the blame. We have to be careful to make sure that our side of the story comes out clearly so that they cannot pin the blame on us for their deeds.

Yes, that's something I've been concerned about too.

It is clear that if HR 1207 passes and it causes the economy to crash/fall more, then Ron will be blamed for this. We must make sure that it is known that this was inevitable, Ron's bill only exposes what the Fed has been doing.

Not to worry. It will be a cold day in hell when this bill makes it through the Senate and Obama signs it.

We have absolutely zero risk on this. LL

Yes, but the data I used was from the last time he ran for Senate; in 2004.

The time frame for this set is 1999-2004.

We need to make a list of all major opposition who are clearly in the pockets of the financial sector. Send that list to every major media outlet, and maybe we can start to expose them to the general public for who they are.

Just maybe...
