Politicians say you don't care about the Federal Reserve. Prove them wrong

From Campaign For Liberty:

It's been a lonely journey at times.

For many years, the majority of my Congressional colleagues -- even other members of the House Committee on Financial Services -- could simply not understand why I devoted so much of my time and energy talking about the Federal Reserve.

"Ordinary Americans do not care about the Fed!" they'd scoff.

Then came the fall of 2008...

... The Fed-created housing bubble burst. The market collapsed. And the truth about the destructive power of the Fed was unleashed on millions of those "ordinary Americans."

It was the perfect storm.

And after the smoke and shock subsided, anger and a sense of betrayal predominated.

Americans realized the Fed was single-handedly responsible for the boom-bust cycle.

As a result, a record-number of Americans came to support auditing the Fed.

But I knew their personal support would not be enough, unless it was FELT by their representatives in Congress. And to achieve that, their demands had to RING OUT LOUDLY in the House and Senate.

That's where Campaign for Liberty comes in!

Fortunately, I'd just finished forming C4L for the exact purpose of mobilizing pro-liberty activists to put the heat on politicians.

And my staff and I agreed that passing Audit the Fed should be our #1 priority.

So for the past 8 years, C4L members have flooded Congress with petitions, faxes, emails, and phone calls insisting Congress stop dragging their feet and pass Audit the Fed.

Our success since 2008 has been nothing short of remarkable.

Not only has Audit the Fed twice passed the House of Representatives by an overwhelming majority, this January we came just seven votes shy of breaking Harry Reid's filibuster, passing the bill in the Senate, and sending it straight to President Obama's desk.

It's only because of the fact that we organized and mobilized as Campaign for Liberty.

That's why our work is so important!

So I'm writing to ask you today to do something very important. Will you take a minute and sign your 8th Anniversary "Continue the R3VOLution" Pledge right away, to express your support and solidarity with Campaign for Liberty's mission?

And after you sign, please chip in a special 8th Anniversary contribution to help pass Audit the Fed and other pro-liberty legislation in the years to come.

I can't express the value of C4L's members in making change and fighting for liberty over the past 8 years.

Here's a 2012 headline from Politico. My 2012 prediction proved truer than I even dreamed, thanks to Campaign for Liberty's hard work and dedication.

Now you and I are on the verge of having our third vote in the House, setting up another Senate battle. This will force Senators to choose between the Big Banks and the pro-Audit the Fed majority right before the election.

But make no mistake -- it's going to take a great deal of hard work and dedication.

You and I will be unable to build on this success and pass Audit the Fed unless Campaign for Liberty members like you remain active in the fight for Federal Reserve transparency.

So on the 8th anniversary of our founding, I've decided to take a look back over C4L's past tooth-and-nail fights and unprecedented victories. And now, I'm asking you to do the same.

If you haven't done so yet, please, renew your dedication to the cause of liberty by signing your "Continue the R3VOLution" Pledge.

And if you have already signed your pledge, please chip in a special 8th Anniversary contribution to help pass Audit the Fed and other pro-liberty legislation in the years to come.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S. Will you please take a minute and sign your 8th Anniversary "Continue the R3VOLution" Pledge right away and express your support and solidarity with Campaign for Liberty's mission?

You will have the chance to write me a personal message explaining what liberty means to you.

And if you have already signed your pledge, please chip in a special 8th Anniversary contribution to help pass Audit the Fed and other pro-liberty legislation in the years to come.
