    Ron Paul Democrat in Ohio District 11 Congressional Race

    Hi Folks.

    My name is Sean and I'm running in the special election to replace Stephanie Tubbs Jones in Ohio's 11th congressional district. I am holding a press conference on Tuesday at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, to decry the impending socialization of our financial system. I spent the summer visiting all 12 Federal Reserve Banks on a motorcycle, and have had some success raising awareness about monetary policy.

    If you know anyone in the media, or have time to post information about my campaign on any blogs you frequent, I could really use your help getting the word out. I've attempted to contact Dr. Paul to let him know that he is welcome to speak as well. We need to stop this bill, or at least do our best to limit the damage it will cause! Here are my websites:

    Thanks for reading!

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    9/21/2008

    “Plan for a new RTC may screw U.S. taxpayers twice – congressional candidate to hold press conference on the steps of the Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank: Tuesday, September 23 at 2 PM.”

    Statement from Sean H. Ryan, candidate for U.S. Congress:

    After a week of unprecedented government intervention in what can no longer be called a competitive free market, the Bush administration is now seeking unfettered power to totally socialize our financial system. Members of congress are being urged to rush passage of legislation granting Treasury Secretary Paulson the authority to purchase $700 billion of junk “mortgage-related” debts from any financial institution “having its headquarters in the United States” or with “significant operations in the U.S.” or fitting conditions of “broader eligibility” that will set by the Secretary himself. Paulson’s use of this and other vaguely-defined powers will be “non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.” In other words, one man (and his Federal Reserve collaborator) will directly control our financial system for a period of up to two years. This massive bailout will be funded by the creation of more government debt, at a time when the U.S. is already bankrupt. Eventually, this debt will be the responsibility of U.S. taxpayers. The American worker is being tasked with rescuing a gang of financial thieves that were unable to perform their jobs competently – but who are now holding our country hostage: by refusing to lend in a volatile climate of their own creation; by demanding that we socialize their risks so that they can then go back to privatizing their profits; by insisting that they are “too big to fail,” when the risk of failure is the only effective future deterrent to their unsound and immoral business practices.

    I am opposed to this coercive attempt by our government to foist the bad debts of bankers onto the shoulders of working men and women, many of whom are already struggling to pay off debts of their own. However, I realize that this legislation will be almost certainly be enacted, probably in a matter of days. Therefore, I demand the inclusion of language guaranteeing that taxpayers will benefit directly from the Treasury’s use of their money. Unless this bailout plan has a “sunset” provision requiring all financial institutions that are involved to loan out the money they receive from the government to small business and taxpayers in need of credit, the U.S. taxpayer will not receive the benefits that supposedly justify this new law. If we allow banks to hoard our money – if they do not do their jobs and ensure the flow of credit – we will soon experience the worst recession in memory, and very possibly a serious depression. An economic collapse of this order would devastate poor and middle-class Americans, the very people who are being forced to pay for this plan, through a stealth inflation tax and a devaluation of the dollar. In order to prevent this worst-case scenario, the sunset clause would provide a 6-month deadline on the use of taxpayer money. Either use it or lose it: if banks aren’t willing to play by the taxpayer’s rules, they are free to fend for themselves.

    On Tuesday, September 23, at 2 PM, I will deliver a more detailed address from the steps of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. I will tell the truth about our money system, about how a fiat currency and the policies of central bankers have resulted in the current crisis, and demand that the Washington phonies who got us into this mess be held accountable for their actions. I will ask the voters of District 11 to send me to congress, to act as their watchdog against further thefts of taxpayer dollars. Finally, I will discuss coordinated actions that will be available to citizens, in the event that the bankers and the irresponsible political leadership in Washington fail to hear our call for justice.

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    I will have 3 weeks from tomorrow until the primary. Special elections generally have a low turnout, and I will be campaigning hard, especially in the areas of the district that may feel as though they haven't been represented by the local political machine. If I can get enough media attention, I think I have a chance.
