In an email from Campaign for Liberty Rep. Ron Paul provides an introduction to a letter calling for an audit of the Federal Reserve so the American people will understand the need to end the Fed and can get on board to the agenda ending the Fed’s control of the American economy in an elitist fashion that is nearly beyond Congressional oversight.

Dear Friend of Liberty,
I hope you join me in my firm conviction that now is the time to fight back against the out of control Federal Reserve and continued Wall Street plundering of our tax dollars.
The threat isn’t hard to see -- just look all around us. Our constitutional principles and freedoms are being assaulted at every turn. More bailouts, trillion dollar “stimulus” plans, huge new debt burdens for our children, simply printing money to cover our failed policies -- I could go on and on. You and I both know that President Obama is going to keep going and going unless someone puts a stop to the madness.
But the good news is there is a way to fight back. And that fight starts today -- by “Auditing the Fed” and showing the American people just how the Fed has abused its power, debauched the dollar, and helped strangle our economy.
Because I know you are a friend in Liberty, I wanted you to be among the first people contacted by Campaign for Liberty for the vital fight against the out of control Federal Reserve.
Please read the enclosed letter from my friend and Campaign for Liberty’s President, John Tate. John isn’t just a friend of mine. He’s also a patriot with years of experience getting things done in politics. Now he’s agreed to take up the fight in a way I cannot -- by leading the fight for Liberty on the outside, while I do battle in the halls of Congress.
I trust you’ll find this battle to expose the out of control Fed worth your support.
Congressman Ron Paul
Dear Friend of Liberty,
Congress has returned. But it looks a little different than last year.
As our battle to Audit the Fed begins again this year, it's important to look at what's different, and why this is our best chance ever to pass a real Audit to shine a spotlight on the out of control FED.
Congressman Ron Paul is now Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy - the Committee that oversees the Federal Reserve.
And Senator Rand Paul stands ready to lead the fight in the Senate.
With hundreds of returning cosponsors, this is a battle you and I CAN win.
But we also cannot underestimate the statist, Fed-loving politicians in Washington, D.C. It's vital we immediately unleash a tidal wave of anti-FED grassroots power on Congress.
I've prepared a petition for you. Please sign it immediately, so we can begin our battle against the Fed by passing a TRUE AUDIT THE FED BILL!
As you know, the Federal Reserve, the Treasury Department, and their cronies on Wall Street have for more than 2 years been engaged in the worst plundering of a country's wealth in the history of civilization.
They are clearly out of control. And you and I together must demand Congress finally put a stop to it all.
That's why your help today is the key to enabling Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty to fight back by taking the battle straight to the heart of the problem - the Federal Reserve itself.
You and I have a mountain of debt, and yet the Fed continues to print more money - backed by nothing but the whims of Ben Bernanke and international bankers.
That is our current financial policy in this country.
Bank bailouts. TARP funds spent on who knows what. The easing of our money supply. Artificially low interest rates. All done to benefit Wall Street bankers and international elites at the expense of the American taxpayer.
If you and I don't put a stop to it all, it will clearly be the ruin of our entire way of life. Already the glaring warning light of runaway inflation is flashing: higher grocery bills, gasoline price spikes, and gold and silver hedge investing are just the beginning.
There is good news, however.
Early in the 112th Congress, Congressman Ron Paul reintroduced his Audit the Fed bill. And for the first time, he was joined by his son, Senator Rand Paul, with similar legislation in the U.S. Senate.
The recent elections showed us what can be done by outraged citizens. Now, you and I must capitalize on these results to push forward in our mission to Audit - and then END - the Fed.
That's why it's vital you agree to fill out your personal "Audit the Fed" petition in support of Ron and Rand Paul's bill.
Did you know that we are now over $14 trillion dollars in debt? Or that over $10 trillion more has been pledged by the government and the Fed in bailouts or loan guarantees during this economic crisis?
More and more Americans are finding out the truth - and demanding action from Congress.
Now is the time to make sure your Representative and Senators feel the heat to support the Audit the Fed Bill!
Some folks say it is already too late.
I don't believe that; I know Ron Paul doesn't either.
We both believe the American people can work together to rein in the Fed and Congress and avert the disaster.
But if you and I don't act today, I'm afraid this crisis will end with the economic ruin of every man, woman, and child in America.
Whether it's seeing a phony "stimulus" package get rammed into law or watching Congress pass a $700 BILLION bank "bailout" under threat of martial law, the American people are agitated and increasingly angry.
They showed it this past fall.
That's why now is the perfect time to unleash the pressure of MILLIONS of outraged Americans on the out of control Fed!
So please fill out the petition urging your Representative and Senators to cosponsor and seek roll call votes on Ron Paul's Audit the Fed Bill!
And please consider making a contribution to Campaign for Liberty today.
As I know you're aware, the Federal Reserve is shrouded in secrecy. Their meetings are off-limits to the public. Their inner workings are off-limits to the public.
So can you imagine the impact of a full-scale audit? You and I will finally be able to show the American people that the Federal Reserve System leads to:
*** Constant economic crises - the housing crisis and the resulting chaos is just one example of an economic bubble created by centrally-planned interest rates and money manipulation;
*** The destruction of the middle class - as fuel, food, housing, medical care, and education costs soar, everyone who is NOT on the government dole is forced to make do with less as the value of their money slowly decreases;
*** Currency destruction - history shows us that riots, violence, and full-scale police states can result when people finally realize their money isn't worth the paper it's printed on and REFUSE to accept it.
And unless you and I end the madness in Washington, D.C., we may be closer than we'd like to think to learning that history lesson firsthand - right here in our own streets.
That's why your commitment to helping pass the Audit the Fed Bill - and helping Campaign for Liberty fight this battle - is so vital.
Not too long ago, there was little chance of passing any legislation like Ron Paul's Audit the Fed Bill.
So I guess there has been one "CHANGE."
You see, with the piling up of trillions of dollars in out of control "bailouts" of Wall Street and international bankers, even many politicians in Washington, D.C. want to show you they're "being responsible."
What better way for Congress to do this than by auditing the Federal Reserve to account for the trillions stolen from U.S. taxpayers?
More and more Congressmen are already feeling the pressure and are signing up to support this bill. It could move at any time in the new Congress.
When it does, you and I must be ready to fight.
And, it's both a bill we CAN pass, and one that is vital to exposing the massive corruption and dollar manipulation at the Federal Reserve.
Now, we just need to show Congress the American people demand action on the Audit the Fed Bill. Here's how we plan to do that.
First, we're already busy contacting up to five million activists nationwide through mail, phones, and email to generate petitions to the U.S. Congress demanding action on Ron Paul's Audit the Fed Bill.
But that's just the beginning. We'll work the talk radio stations, as well as national news programs, and grant local media interviews to further turn up the pressure on Congress.
And a few days before the vote, if we have the resources, we'd also like to run hard-hitting, targeted radio, TV, and newspaper ads.
This entire program is designed to send one, CLEAR message to Congress: any politician who votes against the Federal Reserve audit should look for another job.
But such a massive effort won't be easy - or cheap. That's why I'm counting on your chip in contribution of $10 today.
The big government, Fed-loving statists in Congress will stop at nothing to derail our efforts to Audit the Fed.
This is our best chance EVER to push our battle forward. But it won't happen without your help.
That's why I hope you'll join Ron and me in this battle by sending in your petition and by chipping in a contribution of $10 today.
Thank you for your support.
John F. Tate
