Greetings Liberty Loving Texans!
The drive to audit the Federal Reserve continues to gain momentum, thanks to hundreds of thousands of patriots like you that have made their voices heard on the issue. Now we need your help again to make sure that our efforts end in victory. With your support, we will get an audit bill passed!
Here’s the situation:
Right now there are 282 cosponsors to HR 1207 in the House of Representatives. That’s just under 2/3rds of the House, a truly remarkable accomplishment. How did we get there? By calling our congressmen, signing petitions, sending letters, and by letting our representatives know in every possible way that this issue is important to us and important to America.
But there is still work to be done in the Senate. The Audit the Fed companion bill, S 604 has 23 cosponsors. That’s a great start and the bill is certainly gaining momentum, with 20 cosponsors since the 4th of July. But to overcome resistance from the Senate leadership, we’re going to need even greater support.
We didn’t come this far just to watch the audit bill stall out in the Senate!
That’s why Campaign for Liberty is organizing a nationwide Mass Action Event to bring as many senators as possible on board with S 604 and round up some obstinate representatives. Last spring, a similar effort for HR 1207 resulted in over 50 new cosponsors as the support in the House doubled in just a few weeks.
Since that time, our organization has grown and the American people have become increasingly aware of the damage being done to our country by the Federal Reserve. Over 75% of Americans want to see an audit of the Fed, and more Americans actually think less of the Federal Reserve than the hated IRS. We’ve made monetary policy a key issue in the public conscience. Our efforts can and will be more successful during this Mass Action Event.
We are very fortunate in Texas: both of our senators have already cosponsored S 604 (let’s call and thank them!). However, we still have a few representatives who have not signed on to HR 1207, and we need to put pressure on them.
If you live in or near any of these congessional districts, please help us make a final push to get them on board! We need to collect petition signatures and deliver them to these representatives:
We need everyone to show up for petition drop-off events on Tuesday, September 15th at 4PM across Texas. Campaign for Liberty’s Mass Action Event will culminate with nationwide visits to local congressional offices. Our goal is to have over 100 people show up for the rally and petition drop at Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson’s Dallas office at 3102 Maple Avenue, Suite 600, Dallas, TX, 75201
Please join us if possible! From there we will head over to the Federal Reserve Bank, 2200 N Pearl St, Dallas, TX 75201 for an evening rush hour sign wave.
Smaller events will be planned at office locations across the state. If you are one whose representative hasn’t signed on, we need you to step up and choose a good location for your area’s rally. Please contact me.
We know what we have to do to succeed. We also know that victory could mean a revolution in the United States’ monetary policy, once the workings of the Fed are finally revealed.
If that’s not enough motivation (really?), Campaign for Liberty is offering prizes for truly outstanding efforts. The person that collects the most signatures in the state (as certified by a State, Regional, or County Coordinator) will win an autographed copy of Congressman Paul’s new book, End the Fed. And if Texas collects the most signatures (as a percentage of the population), we’ll win a $1,500 gift certificate to the Campaign for Liberty store.
Working tirelessly for freedom,
Interim State Coordinator
