[Okay, I normally don't engage in democracy games. The purpose of democracy is to prevent change, after all. However, this has the potential to rattle the Obamanable Snowmen's cages a bit, so if any of you are so inclined, hop on the bandwagon. - HAC]
Ron Paul's bill to Audit the Federal Reserve Bank, HR 1207, has now garnered 55 co-sponsors and has been referred to the House Committee on Financial Services. This is a major development. The bill will now be debated and voted upon in the Committee and will then either go to the House for a debate and vote or will be defeated.
Most bills die in committee for lack of support. There is no way to know how long it will stay in committee. That means it's all up to you.
It's a major step forward for our movement to get the House to even consider a bill which questions the autonomous authority of the Fed. We must make the most of this opportunity!
We need to step up and give the situation all our attention now. This is our chance to shine!
Imagine the news on Tuesday morning: “Flood of phone calls shuts down Congressional Switchboard”. YES WE CAN!
