S 202 Co-Sponsors

Sen DeMint, Jim [SC] – 1/26/2011
Sen Vitter, David [LA] – 1/26/2011

Check out the Audit the Fed page to read the bill itself, as well as two sample letters you can use when writing your Representatives and Senators.

  • John Carpenter

    I wrote both senators in my district, i.e. D- John Gleason and R- Dave Robertson, asking for there support for the Fed Reserve Transparency Act S 202 sponsored by Senator Rand Paul. I also reminded them that they are paid to represent there fellow American people!

  • mark 971

    The Question I have is , is the gold still there as the last time the American people were allowed to see it was in the 1970’s. CBS I think was allowed to take the tour of Fort Knox. They had the gold there then but what about now, especially since we are in such debt. The price of gold is estimated at $1500 an once but yet it is illegal to trade in gold. Why? Is this because at the time we started the US dollar the federal reserve wanted that piece of paper to be worth more to gain acceptance? Remember people used to trade in gold for centuries, which meant labor, shopping and everyday transactions.

  • mark 971

    Dear Dr. Paul you are gaining the respect of a lot of US citizens who in the last election voted for change. We hope that your efforts will keep heading in a positive direction for the working class and the preservation of our great nation and not to mention our founding laws, as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were intended to be. In the past forty years I have watched the military grow and grow, that is after all the budget cuts in the 80’s. Before WWII we had a military with less than 5000 soldiers that has increased to over 500,000 soldiers, these are the things our great leaders have warned us about. Roosevelt gave fireside speeches to this warning us to this great threat. We also had a fireside speech warning us about the effects of the newly founded federal reserves bank, were our president openly apoligized to the nation on allowing this to happen. We hope you can bring this great nation back to the great view the world has had of us. We as America want someone to be accountable to helping fix the devastation the world is experiencing, one being the federal reserve and wall street. How can we have an economic system were only 12 people have the right to ruin 1 world economy, and then just say oops won’t happen again, can you loan me some money. Do we really need 500,000 soldiers destroying international relations with countries we have had good alliances with for centuries? We as a nation of employers, as politicians are employees of the people of the US, need to start taking this role very seriously as our founding fathers perdicted these events. We ask you Dr. Paul are you the man for this job, will your views change to help the people or will it be big business? We have seen change and that took it to closed door agreements and the American people getting shafted as most can not afford president Obama’s discounted healthcare plan which still cost an average American $300 a month just for themselves. With the vast amount of Americans making only $8.25 an hour, which this still doesn’t hit the national poverty income level for our nation, and lets face it who can live off $10,000 a year with $4 a gallon gasoline. It is time our politicians see the big picture, we pay an income tax which our Congress and US Supreme Court both agree is unconstitutional so why are states getting away with this. Congress told me that my labor was my own personal property that was untaxable but yet every year I get reminded to make my “volintary payments” to the state i live in. I feel as though we are getting doubled taxed as not only do I pay state I pay federal. I thought with the income tax laws the government used the weekly amount to gain interest on that money during the year and your return was what you paid in and recieved back. Why has my government not stood up for me, I pay these payments thinking i will get better government programs, but I am now facing the harsh reality my Social Security benefits won’t be there when I need them. I would also like to know your views on cutting the military spending as what nation is going to declare war on us, invade our lands with the technology we have today? What will you do to cut military spending and cutting of our military, and closure of unnecessary bases in other countries as we have bases throughout much of the world? What are your views on easing tensions with China, North Korea and lifting the ban on sanctions to Cuba since the fall of the Soviet Union? Why must we fund bombings rather taking care of the citizens that preserved the welfare of our country through a very trying time WWII.? Why must our returning Vets. go on a two year waiting plan for their benefits after being injured in a war most Americans didn’t want? These are the issues we need to be addressed and are you the person to do so? We do see the way you are headed and we hope that path you don’t stray from. We do want change but for the better, not more devastating.


  • casey b. portola ca.

    This bill now has 141 co-sponsors! Way to go Dr. Paul great start to bringing accountability back to Wash.

    RON PAUL 2012!

  • RickT



    RON PAUL is daring to finally uncover the FEDERAL RESERVE FOR WHAT IT IS A PRIVATE BANKING CARTEL WHICH IS WHOLLY OWNED BY SUCH BANKING FAMILIES AS THE ROTHCHILDES, MORGANS, ROCKEFELLA’S just to mention a few and their front banks who want to remain in the shadows.

    After Woodrow Wilson signed into law the FEDERAL RESERVE ACT, HE SAID IT WAS THE GREATEST MISTAKE OF HIS PRESIDENCY! That in a very true sense he gave the power unprecedented power to private individuals whose agendas may not be in the best interests of the people of the United States.




  • Thanks Ron Paul for insisting on government accountability, frugality, and responsibility to this country’s rulers–“We the People.” Our employees–Legislators, Judges, and Executives seemed to have forgotten their underling positions on the U.S. Organizational Chart. Bring back strong Constitutional Government. A democratic republic is run by the people (the democratic part) through elected and appointed officials (the re-public — representative — part). It is time we had a President who understands the meaning of executive (carrying out laws and regulations) and presiding (over affairs of state) and knows better than to take on legislative responsibilities.

  • It’s way past time for the citizenry to regain their top position on the United States’ government Organizational Chart.
    “We the People”
    | | ——————Judicial Branch
    Legislative Branch Executive Branch

    Time for the government “employees” (such as Senators, Representatives, Executives, and Judges) to back off from banking, commercial business, global policing, currency control, duplicate tasking, gratuitous appointments, et. al.
    Constitutional heirarchy, rights, and requirements should be paramount and protected by the elected and appointed civil employees. Thanks to Ron Paul for focusing on insisting that our government be accountable, frugal, and responsible to those of us who rule this country–its citizens.

  • Lisel

    First step, is to change the NAME of the Fed. It should not be allowed to have the quasi authority of a public institution. It is not Federal, it is not a Reserve and it is owned and run by a private banking cartel that works in its own interests only.

    It should be called something like the Banking Syndicate of Selected Corporations.

  • write your reps!!

    just want to take a second to urge everyone reading to write your reps. it really is the only way we will get change. below is copy of what i sent to my rep. i am not well verse in writing, however my congressman knows how i feel!! take 5 and tells yours how you feel!! make change happen don’t just think about it!!

    Hello Congressman ____, I write you today to ask for your support for HR 459. I would like to see you become a co sponsor as well. We live under a monetary policy that allows for the unlimited printing money, the control of interest rates, and one in which more money is owed back the federal reserve than even exists. Is that not crazy. From day 1, when the fed first printed the us dollar, they exchanged those dollars for us treasury bonds of equal value plus interest. Therefore from day ONE the exact amount of money that is in existence is owed back to the back plus interest. Where does the interest come from? Its is impossible to pay something that does not exist. For over a 100 years now America has accrued interest that can not be payed back. We will have to face this one day and sooner rather that later. Now I get that we would not be where we are today if was not for this policy, however do we have to give them complete control with total secrecy. No transparency! No oversight! Please Congressman ____ support HR 459, become a co sponsor and ends this injustice to the American people. Let the America people see their check book!

  • elizabeth spears

    Perhaps the 2012 “end of days” is really all about the awakening of America and our decision to MIND OUR OWN AFFAIRS! Stay away from the eventual “blow back” of trying to intercede in the policies of other countries, discontinue the war on drugs (while we zone out on “big pharm”), get rid of the corporate whores in our government, enact some restrictions on Wall Street, and dare I say, reign in the Zionist Jews who have taken the banks, communications, and governments around the world. My brain cannot conceive of an America that votes for Sarah Palin, even if the “Christian Crazies” hope she will usher in the antichrist. Come on people, you cannot keep hoping that the world will end, so that we won’t have to worry about facing down the military if we protest our current government’s behavior. Better to die fighting – help Dr Paul – support the Federal Audit, help him promote a positive American economy, and a return to a gold standard! Oh, and if you want your jobs back – BUY AMERICAN!!

  • macombman

    Just saw a funny youtube video about a debate between Ron Paul and President Obama. This subject matter was the first response out of Ron Paul’s mouth..LOL

  • Woopa

    You might know that Alaska exists, even though you’ve never been there, but can you claim to know what it’s like? You are undoubtably aware of the existence of an “income tax”, but if you havn’t been here – – then you probably have no idea what the tax law actually says.

  • Skid

    Did you people watched this video:
    Fox News mess the records and shows 2010 CPAC elections where RP is booed as if it were this year.

  • Citizen

    Hey All,

    You know that the Republican Party views us Ron Paul supporters as extreme Right Wing wackos.
    The don’t want to know the truth about:
    1. The FED Reserve money corruption
    2. The missing Fort Knox gold confiscated by FDR in 1933 (our gold)
    3. The scandals surrounding Fannie-Mae or Freddy-Mac (Bawney Fwank)
    4. The Crony Special Interest Cartel relationships between Big Government and Big Business (GE)
    5. ANY proof of the Potus being a lawful eligible candidate

    The RINOs take the Bill O’Reilly position “It Just Doesn’t Matter” x5

    Well People…. IT DOES MATTER !!!
    and WE the PEOPLE need to hold them accountable

    WE need to support the Texas Straight Talk Truth and let those Progressive Liberals choke on it.
    Truth has NO Agenda

  • While you’re at it, can you audit Fort Knox as well?!

  • New Ron Paul Chant

    With the onset of the 2012 Primary election cycle about to begin, we Ron Paul Supporters need to squelch our opposition.

    I propose spreading the message of a new Ron Paul Chant. Currently, we chant Ron Paul! Ron Paul! Ron Paul! Ron Paul! Ron Paul! Over and over again.

    In CPAC 2011, our opposition began chanting USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! In order to counter-chant us. This basic counter-chant insinuates (or better still, further insinuates) that Ron Paul and Ron Paul supporters are Anti-American.

    We need to either steal the counter-chant (USA!) thereby leaving our opposition to think of something else to counter-chant us and at the same time bring the cognitive association that Ron Paul and Ron Paul supports are more American than those who oppose us, or we need to use another chant. An alternative chant could be Ron Paul, USA! Ron Paul, USA! Ron Paul, USA! Ron Paul, USA! Ron Paul, USA! Ron Paul, USA!

    So Ron Paul supporters, how about it? What are your thoughts? Use USA! Chant or Ron Paul, USA! Chant?
