Audit the Federal Reserve

150 Responses



The Federal Reserve is the chief culprit behind the economic crisis. Its unchecked power to create endless amounts of money out of thin air brought us the boom and bust cycle and causes one financial bubble after another. Since the Fed’s creation in 1913 the dollar has lost more than 96% of its value, and by recklessly inflating the money supply the Fed continues to distort interest rates and intentionally erodes the value of the dollar.

For the past 30 years, Congressman Ron Paul has worked tirelessly to bring much-needed transparency and accountability to the secretive bank. And in 2009 and 2010 his unfaltering dedication showed astonishing results: HR 1207, the bill to audit the Federal Reserve, swept the country and made the central bankers shudder at their desks. The bill passed as an amendment both in the House Financial Services Committee and in the House itself. But eventually the most significant portions of the bill were derailed. (Full story here.)

This year, Audit the Fed is back with a vengeance. Reintroduced on 01/26/2011 as HR 459, Ron Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve now has 227 co-sponsors, and the numbers keep growing! HR 459′s companion bill in the Senate, S 202, has already attracted 20 co-sponsors.

This is history in the making, and victory is within reach. Imagine what will happen if HR 459, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, comes up for vote in Congress! It has real potential to pass — BUT only if we educate and rally the people to support it and get our Congresspeople to put it to vote and pass it.

Step 1: Your Representative

HR 459 (House)

Dear Representative,

Please co-sponsor and/or support HR 459, an effort to audit the Federal Reserve.

Recently, it has come to light that there is little to no accountability to the people on the part of the Federal Reserve. While the citizens of this country are required by law to give an accounting of every penny they come in contact with, the Federal Reserve has never been held to the same standard. During this time of extreme economic crisis, the people deserve an accounting of where our money is going.

Currently there are 227 co-sponsors for this legislation, and it is enjoying bi-partisan support. Your efforts in supporting this important legislation would go a long way in proving to your constituents that you not only hold the Federal Reserve to the same standard as you do your constituents, but it would also show that you believe in transparency. Anything less than support for this resolution suggests that you are in favor of secrecy and a lack of accountability to the people who pay the bills. We pay the tab; we have a right to know where our money is going.

Unlike recent bills that you voted in favor of that had hundreds of pages and just a few hours to read, this bill can be read in under 5 minutes. I encourage you to take the time to read it, and then move to support it.

Thank you in advance for your attention on this important legislation. I have every expectation that you will do right by your constituents and support this measure.

Sincerely,

S 202 (Senate)

  1. Darla

    Just a few ideas on our present day government. Obama himself in whom I question his true birth place. A senate that never has a term. Tax payers don’t really get to vote the President in. Too many illegal aliens and no change in taxes like sales tax instead of income tax. Senators signing bills they haven’t even had time to read. An economic adviser that was in trouble with the IRS for not paying his taxes prior to being a part of the administration. A Federal Reserve that shows no transparency. WOW! I just know George Washington has turned over a few times. Does anyone not understand why our Government isn’t working for us. Get them out and I do not wish to hear about any more ear marks trading hands. Thieves!

    please, don’t be so naive. our country is in a big hole because of all the puppet Presidents we have had since JFK. Obama is one more puppet. Do your research and take a closer look of who finances him. Oddly enough, Goldman Sachs is his greatest supporter. What a coincidence that he bailed them out. Don’t be a sheep. I hope you know of the NDAA law that your president signed on 12/31/11. He just killed our Bill of Rights. You ought to do your research before you make such an ignorant statement (“this is what Obama is doing”) WAKE UP SHEEP!

    I’m 30 years old and I have never voted. Until now I have never had a reason to. The world is in chaos and the United states of American is just being lead down a rabbit hole. This generation of kids are smarter and wiser with out the help of the flawed schooled systems and even they know its all wrong. I for the first time have heard from a politician’s mouth the truth of what is wrong with america and would be proud to make you the first person I have ever voted for!

    Reinstate the original Glass-Steagall Act, and I am certain that as a result, the Fed will be audited thoroughlyng. Why work piecemeal when you can clean the whole mess in one simple action. We the people have our lives to live, do we not. So get her done!

      The truth about American’s is we don’t WANT to be ignorant. Growing up we’re trained to believe that what we are told is truth and that the world is what it is-no need to ask questions. We were told anything anyone said outside of Government was a crazy conspiracy theory and to shrug it off. Thank God for activist journalism, social media and this new age of thinking because America is slowly and surly waking up to the reality of what we are. A bunch of intentionally dumbed down minions…but not for long! Ron Paul is my personal hero =]

    I have voted Dem ever since I was old enough, but I must say that Ron Paul has my vote. Its time we the people took our lives and country back. We need someone in office that will work for our interests and not those of the banks or corperations. Also I say put a cap on the time one can serve in congress, A president is only allowed 8 yrs ….. why isnt that in effect for all other public offices? they’re no better than the leader of this country.

    Dear Honorable Representative/Candidate For President, Ron Paul , (Rep.Texas):11/31/2011
    The Federal Reserve , needs to be monitored by a “Civilian Review Board” or a “Coalition For Sound Money” , as proposed by Dr. Hans F. Sennholz, PhD, Economics , in his book “Money And Freedom”, published by The Center For
    Futures Education, Cedar Falls , Iowa., in 1985. ( Deceased )
    The 17 EuroZone Nations and its 27 European Common Market Nations , in
    it’s “Bail-Out Mentality Portfolio”.This Boom and Bust , Boom and Bust , is now being participated in by the Fed and the present Obama/Biden Administration , cannot and has not addressed this very severe
    and pessimist problem……We Have Inflationary Trends , Then The Fed. Feeds The
    American Voting Constituency , Deflationary Trends , As Well As Depreciation Of Our
    Money ( U.S. Dollar ) , and blames the Capitalistic / Free Enterprise System ; and then
    demands that the American Tax Payor , is at fault for evreything , and must be burdened with more and more taxes.
    Our only salvation , is to vote the entire group out of office , come November 2012 &
    my wish is that the “New Congress” , takes the power away from the Fed. to print any
    new money or financial instruments , that has given the Fed a “Monopoly over our
    U.S. Dollar since 1913 …..Time For A Change.
    God Bless You and Yours, and GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    Dear Michael,

    I wanted to provide you with a brief update to let you know that I am a cosponsor of S. 202, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011. Your advocacy for this legislation made a difference, and I look forward to supporting the bill when it comes to the floor for a vote.

    Again, thank you for taking the time to let me know about your priorities in Congress. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

    Sincere regards,

    Even though an audit would reveal to the people what a con the Fed is, can you imagine a Rick Perry audit? It would likely claim that Lee Harvey Oswald did it.

    Congress approved of the Fed and the Bailouts. Congress can repeal our dependence on the Fed and cancel the bailouts, demand our money back and seize the assets if the don’t pay. Let Citibank try to repossess the Pentagon.

    Homeland Security (Gestapo in German) has issued an order to scan facebook for people opposing the Fed. Talk about a clear sign of their control.

    With it being illegal to own people as under the constitution. Why then can we allow ourselves to be owned by the world bank,through the federal reserve? Mr. Ron Paul please stop this injustice,and bring us out of these dark times. You can do this,I know you can. The federal reserve must be crushed,or the U.S. shall surely perish. So please don’t stop at auditing the federal reserve,but instead declare war on the world bank. As the world bank, and the government secretly declared war on all the citizens of this country. The government has all the power to stop this genecide of the American people, but will do nothing with it, except say that the people better like being raped,tortured,and killed.

    Why a half-hearted effort – Ron Paul? Why not be bold enough to say – eliminate the Fed completely. Central bank is the root cause of the poverty in the world. If the Fed can print money by any amount at any time then it means money is free. Then we do not have to return it. Why then pay interest? Why deficit? Why debt? Isn’t the Fed a complete scam?

    The Nobel Laureate in economics, Milton Friedman, said this about the central bank: “One unsolved economic problem of the day is how to get rid of the Federal Reserve”.

    It is good to see that the republicans, like Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and Ron Paul have some courage to relate the Fed with the economic crisis. But I am afraid that they do not have enough dedication to stand up against it. Passing a bill will not help. You have to kill it.

      Yes Wall Street is a rip off but that is only if your dumb enough to keep putting money on the table for them to rake off. At least with Wall Street we can choose not to participate. To not participate with the Fed we would have to return to the Gold standard. Yes!

        I heard one documentary speaker mention that a fiat currency isn’t the real problem, its the debt based backing. In other words, gold isn’t even necessary. Just trust and faith in Government….. Which is currently… eroding within the American People….

          The solution may be as simple as the Government issues its own currency from its own bonds that it sells. Simple.

      Even so, buying a stock is ultimately a choice. You can’t legislate greed or stupidity without diminishing our rights as a free people. I think trying to control the stock market flies in the face of the freedom we seek to get back through Ron Paul’s leadership.

    Why is it the clear statement of Title 12, section 247, that the FR Board of Governors shall make an annual “full report” of the Fed’s operation to Congress does not compel the disclosure of receipt and disbursement of the $8.4 TRILLION that was received by the FRBNY from the auctions of Treasury securities last year ? These funds could NOT have been used to redeem the maturing T-securities. Such an action would have reduced the National Debt and that did not happen. Those funds appear to disappear into the coffers of FRBNY. Ref.
