    Keep fighting, Dr. Ron Raul, don’t give up too easily. Obama passed his HealthCare because he refused to give in and you should do the same.

    Thank you Dr. Paul for establishing a foothold in the muck. Hopefully we will be able to advance this to full disclosure, with accountability. It would be nice to have been able to take this as a single victory, but we must learn tactics to dig in and chip away at the adversary, exactly as they have eroded our great republic over decades.

    Anyone got any ideas? Please, step up.

    Dr. Paul is the lone voice of moral integrity and reason amongst the masses of corrupt politicians. His work to audit and ultimately abolish the Federal Reserve is our only hope of restoring true liberty in our country. It’s no wonder Vladimir Lenin once said, “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation.”

    He was right; a central bank enables the transformation into a welfare-warfare state.

    How about a 25% salary reduction for every year congress approves a budget deficit? And a 2% pay increase for each year they come up with a balanced budget. It sure as hell works in the free market.

    That is dereliction on their part and they are going to pay for the decisions they made to increase the power of the Federal Reserve.

      The mainstream media (like Washington DC) is owned by the FED and Wall Street interests…they’ll bury the story

    Here is what Scott Brown gave as reason for saying nay to the Vitter amendment (this is his post on Facebook):

    Scott Brown “supported the Sanders amendment over the Vitter amendment, because I do not believe politicians should be involved in decisions about currency and monetary policy. This can seriously undermine consumer and investor confidence. Since Congress can’t even manage to make good fiscal policy decisions – as evidenced by our r…ecord levels of debt – it should not be expected to manage monetary policy.”

    Can you believe this?

    It appears we must re-evaluate the system of checks and balances the founders set up to prevent government corruption and exploitation. It has quite obviously failed. Nothing a truly educated electorate can’t fix. Chuck all education reforms since WW2.

    We have two Senators here in Hawaii, Inouye and Akaka. Both of them voted nay. I sent this email to them both.

    Your vote puts you on the side of endless bailouts and an unelected and unaccountable Federal Reserve whose destructive policies wrecked our economy. Change your voting habits or feel the power of the people, we vote too you know, without getting paid.

    Just scroll down this website and you’ll find the entire list of votes. The duds are falling each day in both parties. Pay attention to the voting records and then cast your vote accordingly in November.

    Can someone make a list of all of the 62 cowards who voted against this so we can black list them and get them out. Especially the Republicans that claim they are “small government”. Even with the water downed version this is still a major miracle. Time to keep the heat on this stuff is working.

      I think this is the list- someone double check please. I had trouble finding the name and number of the amendment

      for other votes- opencongress.org is great to see who voted for what also

      makes it easier to see who belongs in office and who doesn’t so we don’t just kick out the good guys like Ron Paul just because they are incumbents

        this is better and easier to see- by vote.

        please note not every democrat is bad- Wyden from our state is great and this is why. He votes against his party when its the right thing to do. We need him to stay in office. I hope we can be thoughtful in who we kick out of Congress- just being an incumbant does not mean bad.
