    Would something like Statistical Release H.4.1 not help? That would detail, from a high level, ‘Factors Affecting the Fed Balance Sheet’:

    http://www.federalreserve.gov/Releases/H41/20090115/default.htm

    If that is too many numbers, how about a more layman’s terms approach to the various components within H.4.1?

    http://www.federalreserve.gov/monetarypolicy/bst.htm

    No offense, but the government hasn’t exactly been doing a bang-up job in auditing itself, its agencies, or what *used to be* (and are now all of our) government sponsored entities up to this point. Please note this is not pointed at any party or congress, it’s just the way it is.

    Beyond that, im not sure if most of the ‘auditors’ know what the intention behind a reverse repurchase agreement is (or how to read a balance sheet), nonetheless audit the efficacy of a reverse repurchase agreement with another central bank to provide currency liquidity.

    Anyway, check out the website, you can always email them if you have questions. Feel free to educate yourself.

    It is time the federal reserve is better understood by all taxpayers. It seems that this middle entity has all the benefits and for reasons that might become more clear later with an audit, the WH seems to pick present, past members to handle all our money concerns. Yes, in an era of transparency let’s support this bill. Thank you Ron Paul

    How many trillions of dollars have we paid this private company over the years do do our governments job. It is my understanding that we could buy back the federal reserve for the paltry sum of $450,000,000 and completely eleminate this waste of tax payers dollars.

    At least Ron and a few select others are attempting to have this audit.

    Look up your congressman and urge them to support this bill. Here is a template I created you can use so it is easy and a no-brainer. Feel free to modify it:

    Dear (Congressman)

    I urge you to cosponsor the bill proposed by representative Ron Paul of Texas, H.R. 1207. The actions of the Federal Reserve have significant effects upon this whole nation, which includes the citizens of our state, and sadly the Federal Reserve has power to in fact hurt the economy of this nation if it goes unchecked. There needs to be more oversight and regulation on what the Federal Reserve can and should do. Unfortunately as a primarily private entity the Federal Reserve is causing destruction, willful destruction, and it is unfair and wrong for us, you and me included, to have to suffer and pay the consequences of a private entity like this. If anything, the Federal Reserve should be more regulated, including being audited, and if that is not enough, the Federal Reserve should be dissolved and the power to control the U.S. currency be put into the hands of the government, not some private entity.

    For these reasons, and many more exist, which I urge you to discover, please support bill H.R. 1207. Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    (Your Name)

      “and the power to control the U.S. currency be put into the hands of the government”

      Do you believe the government can do a better job than a private entity that has a vested interest in our economic vitality? Do you truly believe that to be a feasible solution?

      What portion of government is as educated, structured in a democratic fashion, and behaves in an largely (noone is completely) apolitical fashion?

      If you haven’t noticed all the other central banks are now following our lead and decreasing interest rates… Maybe they are all wrong?

          Really, so what entity or future entity of government would you entrust with the “power to control the U.S. currency”?

            That would be Congress. And there wouldn’t be much for them to do if the money supply was fixed to gold and silver.

    It’s amazing that so few people know about JFK’s issue of United States Notes BACKED BY SILVER! After his assassination, these notes (the small percentage that went into circulation) were hastily called in. Silver backed currency would have pushed out of
    the market the Federal Reserve Notes backed by NOTHING of ANY value — in other words, thin air. IS THAT MOTIVE or is that MOTIVE? The BIG Monied cartel is ruthless!

    The bill requires one audit. Shouldn’t the Fed be audited on a regular basis?

    Ron Paul is 100% correct on this, and has my vote locked up should he run in 2012.

    For anyone looking for the history of the Fed, check out The Creature from Jekyll Island, which has its history from the initial conception documented. I can’t recommend it highly enough for anyone remotely curious about how this bankers’ cartel got to where it is today.

      I stumble upon that too, but a little skeptical. It’d would be hypocrisy, but the bill is passed, who wouldn’t want a part of the pie? He’d denied it like Jindal? Plus, I’m sure the people of his district would want him to receive it. The bill was passed with his support or not, so I don’t think this is an issue as big as auditing the FED! Though, it’s pretty hypocrite if it is true?

        I think Dr. Paul has explained this before, and he said something like this: he will vote against big spending bills all day long, but once they get passed, he will try to get the most money for his district as possible. This 1. provides services for the people in his community, and 2. keeps the money out of the hands of the federal government. If money is earmarked, the Treasury Secretary doesn’t get to “lose” several hundred billion dollars.

    Greetings Mr Paul,
    I thank you for having nerve to stand up to this lucifarian bunch of dry bones. Someone needs to commit(lunny bin) who ever thinks that you can ever survive in life by someone who sells you a counterfit $100 bill for $110 dollars LOL. FED KNOWS WE ARE SO DUMBED DOWN AND EXPLOITS OUR WEAKNESSES AS A COUNTRY THAT ONLY HAS TO PAY OFF JUST UNDER 500 MEMBERS TO CONTROL JUST 300+MILLION PEOPLE. i tell all my friends this … IF YOU DONT LIKE PAYING TAXES JUST DONT USE THE FED ISSUDE MONEY just that simple. Need some ideas for better currency? (BARTER GOODS FOR SERVICES, SERVICES FOR GOODS, SERVICES FOR SERVICES,AND LASTLY GOODS FOR GOODS). This would not only create a domestic economy wich we desprately need. but look at it this way if somone traded a crapy roof job that leaked for say enough food for 3 weeks then next time someone needed a roof and some one wanted a roof that you knew you wouldnt recomed them so starvation would drive them to excell in what they do, as a professional. also it would keep nabors closer in order to network them selves and thus make most people better by creating a bond between people that in the cercumstances cantot and would not occur. Now you may ask your selves how do you save in this kind of economy? your relationship between people who give and recive to each other would prove to be much more vauleable that anything in this world. Just ask your selves this question how much dose it cost you to make a baby? a life that will love you back for as long as it lives. So shall your nabor view you as the same remember we all have different strengths and weaknesses the divesity would run the economy. Besides ask your selves this last question when you die why cant you take money to heaven? …. because its a discusting thing to him. that is why. hope the few that make it past the great tribulation see all we need is good people who truely care for our fellow man not for greed. the root of the cause why we are in the boat we are in. amen

    Dr. Paul, this is my second posting to your website, and it’s apparent that the liberalists have managed to blind-side the American people, and make a mockery of our belovd Constitution. Socialism, Marxism, Fascism or whatever you wish to name it has no place in America. However, the criminals, bleeding hearts, and people looking for handouts have changed our country to the point of making ordinary American citizens nothing more than a manpower pool and unlimited bank account. Have we not called that slavery forever? Send me to the Roman games so I can win my FREEDOM! WE NEED YOU IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!!!!

    God Bless You, Dr. Paul!

    Hey Mr. Paul,

    Please don’t run for President. While you would be the obvious best candidate, you will surely be assassinated, as you would represent the biggest threat to the Federal Reserve that has yet existed. Even JFK was assassinated, and all he did was introduce notes issued by the treasury that were backed by silver. Pretty sneaky, but he still got assassinated. If you become president, I am afraid we will lose an important leader very quickly to assassination, when you can do so much relatively under the radar in congress, inspiring people! If you run for pres though, I will definitely vote for you.

      What exactly do you mean by that Tamara?

      Either,
      A) You are a supporter of the Constitution and what it stands for and it really does disappoint you to see this great country stand on the shaky ground that it is on now. If this is the case, you should really put more into your post. Or….

      B) You are not a supporter of the Constitution and really shouldn’t be posting on this site. If you do want to continue to post, at least come with something better than you can’t stand the attitudes of the American people because I am an American and although you probably don’t like my attitude, I have a feeling most people on this board like mine more than yours.

    The Banksters are running our Presidents and fully control Obama. Nothing has changed nor will it as long as they pull the puppetstrings of the President along with the CFR.

    It’s truly time for change, but as anyone can clearly see by now, there has been no change in America once again unless, of course you consider skin color.

    Way to go Mr. Paul. I hope this works. Of course the best policy would be to desolve the Federal Reserve Bank all together; and even though the President has the power to do so, I doubt he has the nerve.

    If congress does not support this bill,then Americans will know that their entire political process is corrupted beyond redemption.

    Do not accept half baked audits that have parameters selected by the Fed.The entire process should be open and thorough.It won’t happen easily and the more resistance you encounter,the smellier will be the carcass of corruption and deception.

    Dr. Paul, I’m a former middle class American who supports you 100%, and hope, along with other Americans, that you will see success in your efforts to return America to Americans. I’m a former middle class American because of the IRS extortion, and racketeering practices they have made legal for their own benefit. I now must try to find work to support my wife, and home expenses. God speed, and good luck to you, sir.

      This is not Jerry Claunch from Phoenix that went to J.B.Sutton school is it? if so e mail me I went to school with you and Sharon.

      Anyway my response was, “THIS IS THE BIG ONE ELIZABETH”, Henry Gonzales has been trying for years to no avail, however if we could get this, at least started, we may be able to save this country before it is too late ! If you have a mind,go and read “Secrets of the Federal Reserve” (online), by Eustace Mullins, redone, the original writer was imprisoned in an insane asylum for 13 1/2 years and had all his writings burned etc.. You need to read the whole thing. If this can get done it will remove almost all the problems in this country. This is the writing that Jeckyl island and all the rest were taken from. MUST READ! Ezra Pound, who found all the dirt and documentation was the original…. They say conspiracy theory, but It’s not a “theory” when it’s happening, right before your very eyes,is it?

Maybe the other Jerry has more support. Also, how do I access the online book “Secrets of the Federal Reserve”? I’m very in terested in how we’ve been duped for all these years.

          Well,thanks for answering, I went to school with some good people with the same name,I guess. Just google or whatever search engine you want, “secrets of the Federal reserve”, it’s about 250 pages, you can read it online or print it or whatever, if you take the time to read it all, you will know exactly what is going on, and it will make perfect sense. Thanks for responding, I am living in Heber,AZ. on the Mogollon Rim in the white mountains. Bill Knight. PS you’re no kook, I had to change my registration from independent to republican to vote for Paul in the primaries, but I think he’s one of the few that, “gets it”… later.
