$14 trillion missing?

    Dear Friend of Liberty,

    I hope you join me in my firm conviction that now is the time to fight back against the out of control Federal Reserve and continued Wall Street plundering of our tax dollars.

    The threat isn’t hard to see -- just look all around us.  Our constitutional principles and freedoms are being assaulted at every turn.  More bailouts, trillion dollar “stimulus” plans, huge new debt burdens for our children, simply printing money to cover our failed policies -- I could go on and on.  You and I both know that President Obama is going to keep going and going unless someone puts a stop to the madness.

    But the good news is there is a way to fight back.  And that fight starts today -- by “Auditing the Fed” and showing the American people just how the Fed has abused its power, debauched the dollar, and helped strangle our economy.

    Because I know you are a friend in Liberty, I wanted you to be among the first people contacted by Campaign for Liberty for the vital fight against the out of control Federal Reserve.

    Please read the enclosed letter from my friend and Campaign for Liberty’s President, John Tate.  John isn’t just a friend of mine.  He’s also a patriot with years of experience getting things done in politics.  Now he’s agreed to take up the fight in a way I cannot -- by leading the fight for Liberty on the outside, while I do battle in the halls of Congress.

    I trust you’ll find this battle to expose the out of control Fed worth your support.

    For Liberty,

    Congressman Ron Paul

    Dear Friend of Liberty,

    Congress has returned. But it looks a little different than last year.

    As our battle to Audit the Fed begins again this year, it's important to look at what's different, and why this is our best chance ever to pass a real Audit to shine a spotlight on the out of control FED.

    Congressman Ron Paul is now Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy - the Committee that oversees the Federal Reserve.

    And Senator Rand Paul stands ready to lead the fight in the Senate.

    With hundreds of returning cosponsors, this is a battle you and I CAN win.

    But we also cannot underestimate the statist, Fed-loving politicians in Washington, D.C. It's vital we immediately unleash a tidal wave of anti-FED grassroots power on Congress.

    I've prepared a petition for you. Please sign it immediately, so we can begin our battle against the Fed by passing a TRUE AUDIT THE FED BILL!

    As you know, the Federal Reserve, the Treasury Department, and their cronies on Wall Street have for more than 2 years been engaged in the worst plundering of a country's wealth in the history of civilization.

    They are clearly out of control. And you and I together must demand Congress finally put a stop to it all.

    That's why your help today is the key to enabling Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty to fight back by taking the battle straight to the heart of the problem - the Federal Reserve itself.

    You and I have a mountain of debt, and yet the Fed continues to print more money - backed by nothing but the whims of Ben Bernanke and international bankers.

    That is our current financial policy in this country.

    Bank bailouts. TARP funds spent on who knows what. The easing of our money supply. Artificially low interest rates. All done to benefit Wall Street bankers and international elites at the expense of the American taxpayer.

    If you and I don't put a stop to it all, it will clearly be the ruin of our entire way of life. Already the glaring warning light of runaway inflation is flashing: higher grocery bills, gasoline price spikes, and gold and silver hedge investing are just the beginning.

    There is good news, however.

    Early in the 112th Congress, Congressman Ron Paul reintroduced his Audit the Fed bill. And for the first time, he was joined by his son, Senator Rand Paul, with similar legislation in the U.S. Senate.

    The recent elections showed us what can be done by outraged citizens. Now, you and I must capitalize on these results to push forward in our mission to Audit - and then END - the Fed.

    That's why it's vital you agree to fill out your personal "Audit the Fed" petition in support of Ron and Rand Paul's bill.

    Did you know that we are now over $14 trillion dollars in debt? Or that over $10 trillion more has been pledged by the government and the Fed in bailouts or loan guarantees during this economic crisis?

    More and more Americans are finding out the truth - and demanding action from Congress.

    Now is the time to make sure your Representative and Senators feel the heat to support the Audit the Fed Bill!

    Some folks say it is already too late.

    I don't believe that; I know Ron Paul doesn't either.

    We both believe the American people can work together to rein in the Fed and Congress and avert the disaster.

    But if you and I don't act today, I'm afraid this crisis will end with the economic ruin of every man, woman, and child in America.

    Whether it's seeing a phony "stimulus" package get rammed into law or watching Congress pass a $700 BILLION bank "bailout" under threat of martial law, the American people are agitated and increasingly angry.

    They showed it this past fall.

    That's why now is the perfect time to unleash the pressure of MILLIONS of outraged Americans on the out of control Fed!

    So please fill out the petition urging your Representative and Senators to cosponsor and seek roll call votes on Ron Paul's Audit the Fed Bill!

      Good hub.

      The Tea Party movement is the way to go. True warriors. Of course everytime I use the term Tea Party I'm attacked by Liberals. Nothing new - I've come to enjoy the arguments.

      I think you'd enjoy some of my postings. You should at least check them out.

      Have a good one.

        Will do, Smkmdb11. I am glad to see there are two of us that think the same.

        For the rest of you in America that do not know what, THE TEA PARTY IS, THE TEA PARTY IS AS FOLLOWS.

        Number 1. The Tea Party a combination of he following. Demacrats, Republicans, and Independents.

        NUMBER2 . The Tea party concests of, ALL THE ABOVE, who are sick and tired of, The Government craming crap down our throuts. Did you read that 2,100 pages of Obama Care.

        Well, neither did they. It was just, voted on and that was that. Mr. Obama said, we had aweek to look it over, did you see it, NO. Did we have a week, NO.

        In closing, all I can say is, COME ON 2012. WE THE PEOPLE, WHO BY THE WAY, ARE, THE TEA PARTY, WILL, Get - er - done.

        That is my story and I'm sticking to it.

        OLY, aka, The COLA GUY, ake, The Gray Haired bergade, and a 68 year young man who is ticked off at our, GOVERMENT.

    It would be a huge mistake to subject the Federal Reserve to control by Congress or the executive branch. That would politicize the Fed's decisions and compromise its ability to curb inflation when necessary or help avoid a depression. In the period after WWII the fed eased up on interest rates in order to influence the presidential election with the result of igniting inflation which required the application of some bitter medicine by the new Fed chairman, Paul Volcker. He pushed interest rates up to 18 percent if my memory is accurate. The orthodox view in both political parties and in academia is that the Fed should be independent from influence by Congress or the President. The Tea Partiers in Congress who are advocating putting the Fed under the thumb of Congress are either ignorant or indulging in demagoguery.

    Did the banks just bankrupt the world? Do not these same banks own the Fed?

    To answer the question of the post..

    No 14 trillion is not missing.

    Now, I have a question for the libertarian who posted the letter from loony-tunes Ron Paul. Does Ron know where he lost his mind?

    For those who want to follow the plethora of posts like this one, the inspired ideas are.. purchase tons of gold at $1383 per ounce, to stick in a vault because he thinks it will increase the value of the dollar. (Imagine what that investment of billions in gold will mean if gold drops to $500 per oz, where it was 6 years ago.) We don't need to buy gold - democrats and republicans and all real economists agree.

    The other post this hubber has gifted us with is a rant about the National Day of Prayer and his belief that Obama is a Muslim.

    Well, maybe we needed some comic relief. Good. They sent in the clowns.

      Nobody believes purchasing gold will increase the value of the dollar. If you purchase gold, it is to have when the dollar is worthless, which if our government continues to spend like teenagers with their parent's credit cards, will happen soon.

      Trillions may not be missing, but we are trillions in debt and Obama is to blame and he has done it faster and to a higher cap than anyone before him. It's amazing that there are still people in this country who believe anything this criminal says.

      He is in contempt of court in multiple courthouses for not terminated the job killing policy to end off short drilling last year, and ObamaCare is un-Constitutional and a few federal judges agree with me, but does Obama care? Of course not. In theory we should be controlling the government. Of course thats not the case in reality.

      Most liberals who agree with these people are all the same. They do not believe in freedom. They want what Europe has. Go to Europe, please. Do the majority of the country a favor.

      It's nice to know that socialist liberals only make up a minority and barely that.

      Oh, and yet again, no facts can be brought to any argument by a liberal. Facts do not back up liberal agendas.

        A week is a long time in politics! The guy who said that knew what he was talking about!
        The facts don't bear up your claims.

          Lmao. I feel like I'm arguing with a recorded message. Same thing over and over.

          Facts back up my claims, my claims are facts. It's funny how people can, on one thread, speak about shutting people up by asking a question, but when I post a fact filled comment, all you guys to say is something about clowns and something about a week, and to be honest, the rest of that comment is not comprehensible.

          You have nothing worth coming back with. You obviously don't do any research, just repeat what you hear on CNN. Stop following the socialist propaganda. Do your own research. If you do.....you'll be conservative, I guarantee it.
