HS 833 - Ron Paul's Bill To Abolish The Federal Reserve

The revocation of the Fed's authority to manage our economy and issue our money will be the first step towards recovering an economy based on production rather than an economy based on Ponzi scemes.
Only through production is wealth created and only with savings is production possible. This bill will set us back on the road to a sustainable economy. If this passes, there will be pain sooner, but it will not last as long nor hit the poor as badly as what will happen if we let the Fed destroy the dollar.

Please contact your Congressman to support this bill in committee, to co-sponsor this bill and to vote for it on the floor of the House. To write your Congressman follow this link and just type in your State and Zip code.

Here is text that you can copy to request that your Congressman supports Dr. Paul's bill:


Dear ___________

I firmly believe that the irresponsible policies of the Federal Reserve Bank have created the economic disaster that we are facing today. I also believe that in our Constitutional Republic, comprised of free men and women, we cannot have a body that sets economic policy but does not answer to the people or the people's representatives in Washington.
It is wrong that a private bank is making life and death decisions for free American men and women in secret. It is time to abolish the Federal Reserve Bank and give the responsibility of coining our money back to the Congress as is stipulated in the Constitution.
Please support HS 833 that was introduced by Congressman Ron Paul on the 3rd of February. Your support will guarantee my vote.

Thank you,

Thank you for posting this. There is a better place to write to your representatives. At Congress.org you can do it with one click. Enter your zip code on the left side about 1/3 down the page. You go to a page where you can pick state or fed, write your letter and click - they all get it! The easier the better!!!

I took your letter and changed it a little:

"The irresponsible policies of the Federal Reserve Bank created the economic disaster we are facing today. Our Constitutional Republic cannot have a body that sets economic policy yet does not answer to us or you, our representatives.

It is wrong that a private bank is making such critical decisions for free American men and women in secret. The Federal Reserve is unconstitutional in every respect. It is past time to abolish it. We must do it now while there is still time to save the U.S. economy.

I respectfully request that you support HS 833 introduced by Congressman Ron Paul on the 3rd of February.

I recently wrote to you about preserving our Second Amendment rights. Abolishing the Federal Reserve and no to any stimulus package are my other top priorities. The "stimulus packages" are a big fat joke and everyone knows it. The American people are waking up and we will remember in November.

The federal government is out of control and I will contribute everything I can to put the brakes on. Let us take our medicine, have the inevitable economic bottom and be done with it."

Thank you again for getting me started. This is critical!

Thanks Saratica,

i am also convinced that the 2nd Amendment is critical to our liberty. In the end, it is our ability to change the government that keeps the government honest.

Check out this new Christian band that just released their first album. From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.

Introducing the new Christian National Anthem: Guns & Jesus.
