Today thousands of citizens created awareness about the myths and dangers of the Federal Reserve central banking cartel by organizing rallies at over 35 federal reserve offices/banks nationwide.
Congressman Ron Paul, who introduced HR 2755 aka Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act in 2007, spoke at the Houston rally today.

Today, Nov 22, also happens to be the anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination.
No doubt this was not lost on the organizers of today's End the Fed rallies. 
A few months before he was killed, JFK signed executive order 11110 as an attempt to eliminate the Federal Reserve.
There is coverage of today's End the Fed rallies from call ins around the nation through midnight tonight at www.rtrradio.com

Former presidential candidate Ron Paul's speech in Houston today covered sound money alternating with central banking as America's monetary system throughout history. He also shared details of his questioning of Ben Bernanke upon the Fed Chair's retrun from his meeting with the European central banks. Dr. Paul states that Bernanke operates within the parameters of the law, but not the constitution, when he refuses to confirm or deny plans to participate in a global federal reserve system.

 
Senior Citizens, Big Business, & a Labor Union Walk Into a Presidential Campaign...: Divided We Fall PDF Print E-mail

The numbers behind the "Divided We Fail" send a clear message to presidential candidates: Ignore us at your peril.

AARP has 38 million members nationwide. Service Employees International Union (SEIU) represents 1.8 million workers and is the country's largest labor union. And Business Roundtable has roughly 160 member companies with a combined workforce of 10 million people and annual revenues of $4.5 trillion.

Those are the core organizations behind Divided We Fail, an initiative that aims to make health care and long-term financial security (an umbrella covering Social Security) the primary issues in the 2008 presidential campaign. The effort, which was launched earlier this year (and was announced in the Quad Cities last week), will focus initially on four states with early influence on the presidential nominating process: Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.

Reader issue #605If you are an independent voter - that is, a person who does not identify with either of the major political parties - Democratic and Republican leaders would prefer that you did not vote on November 7.

Not only that, but they're doing everything in their power to keep you from voting. They might not break into your house and tie you up until November 8, but they do invade your home through television ads hell-bent on disgusting you with the campaigns, the candidates, and the process. They want you to turn off, tune out and drop out.

For those of us who have frequented the Davenport City Council Chambers for meetings, the charming, outspoken-but-always-diplomatic "ole lady" wearing all the different fun hats is a familiar face. Her name is Susie Bell, and she is the Republican candidate for House District 86 of the Iowa legislature, running against Democrat incumbent Cindy Winkler.

Susie has been following politics since her youth. A wide variety of issues has piqued her curiosity, and more often her ire. She has campaigned in more grassroots efforts than she can name, but give her time and she will recall key aspects of every one, including their outcomes.

 
Optimism and Populism: Jim Hightower, September 8 at Veterans Memorial Park Band Shell in Bettendorf PDF Print E-mail

Jim Hightower is less an activist or strategist than a cheerleader.

Reader issue #597 Even now - when the Republican and Democratic parties are virtually indistinguishable, when the executive branch of the federal government has curtailed civil liberties in the name of national security with little opposition from Congress, and when popular sentiment seems to have little power in Washington - the Texan finds plenty of silver linings.
