End the Fed Demonstrations

November 20, 2008

Right now, Americans are looking for answers as our nation undergoes another
economic crisis. It is a key component of our message that the Federal
Reserve system lies at the heart of these financial problems. This weekend,
activists will gather at Fed branches across the country to call for the end
of the Federal Reserve System and for a return to sound money.

Ron Paul will be speaking around 12:30 pm central at the Houston "End the
Fed" rally on Saturday, and while these rallies are not C4L-sponsored
events, we wanted to make sure you were aware of this grassroots effort. The
organizers of "End the Fed" have provided us with event background and
website information, which is included below.

While enjoying the festivities if you are able to attend, please keep in
mind that the organizers are promoting a peaceful event. Anything along the
lines of vandalism or violence will only discredit the movement and set back
our efforts to reform our nation's monetary system.

The battle to reclaim our Republic is just beginning, and it is a fight that
we can and will win if we stick together and work hard.

Dear All,

I would rather call this event a rally, or a peaceful assembly, or on
a stretch, a petitioning to the Government for a redress of grievances
...just as our Founding Parents intended. The latest is meet at the
Ferry Building under the clock at 10 am.

******************************************

On the night of November 22, 1910, a group of bankers met at an

elite resort

at Jekyll Island, Georgia.

So began the dark conception of the Federal Reserve System, which many
economists argue is responsible for devouring the political and

financial

wealth of America. The U.S. Dollar has seen a better than 98%

decline in its

purchasing power since that time.

G. Edward Griffin summarizes here: "The purpose of this meeting on

Jekyll

Island was...to come to an agreement on the structure and operation

of a

banking cartel. The goal of the cartel, as is true with all of them,

was to

maximize profits by minimizing competition between members, to make it
difficult for new competitors to enter the field, and to utilize the

police

power of government to enforce the cartel agreement. In more

specific terms,

the purpose and, indeed, the actual outcome of this meeting was to

create

the blueprint for the Federal Reserve System." From "The Creature from
Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin

On November 22, 2008, ninety-eight years later, End the Fed! will

announce

the initiation of a grassroots, unfunded, transpartisan citizens

movement

for Sound Money with rallies at every Federal Reserve Bank and

office in the

country. Activists will demand an end to private banker control over

the

nation's money supply and the return to a hard, commodity backed

monetary

system. Their slogan is simple and direct: "End the Fed! Sound Money

for

America!"

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 US dollar and disrupts the proper functioning of the

markets

and will ultimately serve to plunge the nation into an even more severe
crisis, quite possibly even into a serious depression.

End the Fed! supports the passage of Representative Ron Paul's

legislation

which would repeal the Federal Reserve Act, H.R. 2755.

Rallies will be held in the following 39 cities:

Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnati,
Pittsburgh, Richmond, Baltimore, Charlotte, Atlanta, Birmingham,
Jacksonville, Miami, Nashville, New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, St.

Louis,

Little Rock, Louisville, Memphis, Minneapolis, Helena, Kansas City,

Denver,

Oklahoma City, Omaha, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, San Antonio, San

Francisco,

Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Washington,

D.C.

In Europe the term "manifestation" is common, which I rather like -- it hints that demonstrations are but the tips of icebergs, the visible components of more widespread underlying public sentiments, and not merely isolated events with no connection to a larger reality.

  See you tomorrow at the manifestation!
