"End the Fed" Rally to be held Saturday
NOVEMBER 21, 2008

"End the Fed activists believe that the Federal Reserve Bank, through its inflation of the money supply and the distortion of free markets resulting from its intervention, is responsible for the current financial and economic crisis. They also hold that the current round of 'bailouts' and Federal Government nationalization of large segments of the financial sector further inflates the U.S. dollar and disrupts the proper functioning of the markets and will ultimately serve to plunge the nation into an even more severe crisis and possibly even into a serious depression."

End the Fed's action plan includes a petition drive and a Congressional lobbying campaign for the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act (H.R. 2755), which was introduced to Congress by Representative Ron Paul in June 2007. The plan also calls for a public, Congressional audit of both the Federal Reserve Bank and of the U.S. Treasury Department's gold reserve. End the Fed activists believe that with the development of free market and barter trade systems and "private banking institutions based on precious metals and commodities" that we, as a people, may be able to save our economy.

End The Fed Rally Draws Thousands Around the Country, Few Seem to Notice

You would think that a 39 city protest involving thousands of people might warrant a national wire story, maybe a mention on cable news, but no. Reporters don't understand the issue and therefore they ignore it. Of course this can be said for most of the important issues that affect people's lives. Hence we get wall-to-wall coverage of the Obama daughter's educational preferences. Fiddling while Rome burns seems almost understated.

Like the whole blog viewpoint


...These protests against the thieving whores of state-capitalism that is the Federal Reserve System are being organized by an outfit called Restore the Republic, which was founded by the late film producer Aaron Russo not long before he succumbed to cancer. The Chicago area Ron Paul Meetup group has taken it upon themselves to coordinate the Windy City's anti-Fed/anti-fiat money festivities.

Of course, as an anarchist, I'm not so much interested in restoring any republic as I am convincing everyone else who values individual liberty to face reality and admit that the very idea of a republic has been a non-starter as far as our cause is concerned, and to thus relegate that concept to the trash heap of history in favor of a stateless, leaderless, spontaneously self-organizing and wholly self-governing society. Nor was I ever on the Ron Paul-for-president bandwagon. I was on the Nobody-for-president bandwagon. (Nor do I understand the significance of holding such a rally on the anniversary of the JFK assassination. To my knowledge, Kennedy was never particularly opposed to the Fed.)

But if the Paulistas want to host a consciousness-raising event in an effort to get out the word on the evils of inflationary paper money created by the central banking plutocracy, versus the virtues of sound, free market gold and silver money, then I'm all over it. Count me in...
