This is the email i just got:

American Open Currency Standard Partners with Kokesh for Congress, Champion of Sound Money
SANTA FE, NM - February 18th, 2010, Adam Kokesh, Republican candidate for New Mexico's
3rd District and veteran of the Iraq war, built his campaign on the principles of a strong national
defense, transparent government and providing necessary aid to veterans returning home from service.
Another campaign plank supports a policy of honest money to minimize inflationary theft by the
Federal Reserve System.

"The Federal Reserve has destroyed the value of our dollar. Its boom and bust cycle must be replaced
by savings, wise investment and honest money. Few have done more to establish an alternative and
further the cause of honest money than the American Open Currency Standard," says Kokesh. "They
provide a useful set of tools for individuals across the country to rebuild local economic wealth and put
the control of real money back where it belongs: in the hands of the people."

Today the AOCS unveils its latest complementary currency line, dubbed "Candidate Currency", paying
tribute to the public office seekers that walk the walk. According to American Open Currency Standard
Executive Director Rob Gray, the site will feature "...candidates who put their money where their
mouth is. We believe future Congressman Kokesh is the perfect candidate to launch this series and
we're proud to support his campaign."

The Kokesh for Congress medallion is an ounce of .999 fine silver, struck in brilliant proof-like
collector's grade mirror finish. The obverse features meticulously sculpted original artwork of Kokesh
and Lady Liberty sharing the call to a revolution. The limited edition medallion is exclusively available
as a "token of appreciation" to campaign donors that contribute $50 and use the promo code "AOCS"
through the campaign website at www.kokeshforcongress.com. Multiple qualifying donations receive
multiple medallions.

Though the Kokesh for Congress medallion is a timeless classic to be adorned by collectors across the globe, it doubles as an AOCS Approved private voluntary barter currency that can be used like a gift certificate of equal value within the rapidly growing network of merchants across the country, who
actively trade goods and services for honest money.

"We earnestly await Adam's successful bid for office; but while elections and candidates will come and
go, you have the opportunity every day to vote with your wallet," says Gray. "Make a donation today
to help send a statesman and ardent supporter of Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" to work for you in D.C."

Thanks for posting this! You just barely beat me to it! The best idea we've had so far is reaching out to RPF with everything we do. Thanks for the support!
