Speech at the "End the Fed" Rally in Chicago, Nov. 22

Now is the time.

Now is the time to stop freedom crushing, poverty producing, out-of-control government spending.

We know that the politicians do not have the testicular fortitude to do this.
There really is only one way, to abolish the Federal Reserve and replace it with an honest, commodity backed currency, prohibiting fiat fractional reserve banking for demand deposits.

There is no other way. The Fed has been the paramount enabler of crippling debt, costly, destructive counter-productive wars, corporate bailouts, park barrel spending, the biggest Ponzi scheme of all time-- the so-called Social Security system, the hosing bubble, depression era unemployment, and consumer debt which is at an all time high.

The wall street “experts”, the Ivy League “gurus”, and the mainstream media lap dog chatterers have been proven wrong again, conclusively. Real unemployment is at depression levels probably around 20%, even the official rate is over 10%. All that tarp money and bailout dollars was supposed to bring unemployment under 8%.

And as we know, that money was created out of thin air by the FED reducing all our purchasing power accordingly. It is theft, pure and well maybe not so simple–or the American people would have revolted by now. As the champion of funny money, John Maynard Keynes, has said, “Lenin was surely right, by a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved an important part of the wealth of its citizens. There is no surer more subtler means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch its currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, It is done secretly and unobserved, and done so in a manner in which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”

And Federal Reserve printing press money is pure inflation. And it is destroying our country.

Yet the arrogant elite in our country just think we need even more of the same.

Of course the benefits of bailouts and subsidies go to the big banks, other failed financial institutions, and failed corporations. And the trickle down theory hasn’t even produced a trickle.

But our children, grand children and great grand children will bear the greatest brunt of this economic catastrophe.

Let me ask you a question, when is the last time you heard a Democrat declare John Kennedy’s economic prescription, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” You would think they were corporatist Republicans–which they are. There is no difference between the leadership of either parties. They both support the fascistic power of the federal government, the corporatist partnership of that grandiose good ole boy network between corporations and the government, and the mercantilist philosophy having the average Joe fund the economic exploits of government connected corporations.

And the enabler of all of this is the Federal Reserve.

Now Ron’ Paul’s bill, which to my knowledge has gotten out of committee unscathed, is a great first step concerning reigning in the Fed. But we need to push on and finally abolish the Federal Reserve.

In the mean time, we need to fight this plunge into tyranny and poverty by refusing to cooperate at any level with the government to the extent that we can while being able to have the strength to fight another day.

There are many ways we can do this.

Let me suggest a few:

Fight all traffic tickets and demand a jury trial.

Continue to educate our fellow citizens of the right, power and duty to nullify unjust law on juries.

Give only the Constitutionally required information to census takers–that is the enumeration of how many people live in your household.

Only pay taxes that have been lawfully levied.

Don’t ask for permission what is Constitutionally your right to do.

Remind you representatives who is in charge and the oath that they took.

Write as many letters to the editor as you can in support of freedom.

And educate your friends, family, neighbors, work associates, and other colleagues on the importance of liberty, and the paramount means of getting there:

End the Fed.

End the Fed . . .
