Audit the Fed
The central bank of the United States government - the Federal Reserve - thinks it needs a lobbyist to work in Congress against Dr. Ron Paul. The Fed hired an ex-Enron lobbyist to polish its public image. What a great achievement of Dr. Paul's, the Campaign for Liberty, the work on HR 1207/S 604 and the work of so many others and their activism and education, to make what Andrew Jackson called "the Monster" - the all-powerful, globe-dominating, special-interest funding, bankster-enabling, dollar-depreciating, business cycle-generating central bank - worry about its image for the first time since 1913. His presidential campaign alerted millions to the fact that we are being ripped off by the Fed. His "Audit the Fed" bill (282 House co-sponsors & 23 Senate co-sponsors) scares the hell out of them! And wait until his "End the Fed" manifesto is released Sept 16th! They'll need a whole corps of lobbyists, not that any number of fixers will be able to protect what is in essence a criminal counterfeiting gang when its time is up at last. Remember what Jackson said of the central bank of his day: "You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the grace of the eternal God, will rout you out!"
