Our Voice Counts brings you up to date on the latest developments regarding some of the important issues that are affecting the United States of America. On July 25th 2012, the House of Representatives passed an historic Bill often referred to as the “Audit the FED” Bill, HR 459. The sponsor of the Bill, HR 459, Congressman Ron Paul applauded the passage by the House of Representatives of H.R. 459, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act. The bill, which calls for a full audit of the Federal Reserve System-- including its lending facilities and critical monetary policy operations-- passed overwhelmingly by a bipartisan vote of 327-98.

Congressman Ron Paul, Chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee, announced that the subcommittee will hold a hearing to examine sound money and parallel currencies. “The American people have suffered for decades from the declining purchasing power of the dollar. The Federal Reserve has abused its position as the monopolist issuer of currency to enrich Wall Street and impoverish Main Street,” stated Chairman Paul. “The Fed can effectively create money out of thin air with impunity, while creators of gold and silver currencies face jail time. This is a travesty. The only way to stabilize the economy is to return to monetary freedom by legalizing Constitutional money. Until the American people are free to choose the money they want to use, and not what the government forces them to use, the economy never will be truly stable and any recovery will be illusory.”

On the other side, against this Bill passing was the Democratic leadership – Steny Hoyer, Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi, putting their stamp on an issue. They have come out firmly for Fed secrecy. This is a whipped vote, which means that this is one of those times where the Democratic leadership – Steny Hoyer, Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi – are putting their stamp on an issue. They have come out firmly for Fed secrecy. Here’s the whip notice from Democratic leadership on the House side encouraging members to vote against transparency at the Fed.

Steny Hoyer, the Democratic whip, listens to people like Linda Robertson, lobbyist for the Federal Reserve that was once a lobbyist for Enron. He adds that even with the whipping, about half of the Dems voted for the bill, showing how weak the Democrat leadership really is.

Not all Democrats voted against the HR 459, even with the whipping. Democrat Dennis Kucinich so artfully said: “It’s time that we stood up to the Federal Reserve that right now acts like some kind of high, exalted priesthood, unaccountable to democracy.”

So who is this man that seems to be an expert on our monetary system, Ron Paul. Congressman Ron Paul of Texas enjoys a national reputation as the premier advocate for liberty in politics today. Dr. Paul is the leading spokesman in Washington for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies based on commodity-backed currency. He is known among both his colleagues in Congress and his constituents for his consistent voting record in the House of Representatives: Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the "one exception to the Gang of 535" on Capitol Hill.

Many Americans still do not know what the Federal Reserve is and what it does. The Federal Reserve is simply a Federal Central Bank that “controls” the monetary system. The FED, short for Federal Reserve, prints money borrowed from the American tax payers, and also paid by the American tax payers. So how does an entity loan money and also pay that same loan? For more details and to get a better understanding check Our Voice Counts.

There is a solution per Dr. Paul; As Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises explained, sound money is an instrument that protects our civil liberties against despotic government. Our current monetary system is indeed despotic, and the surest way to correct things simply is to legalize competing currencies. On his desk at his office in DC he has a desk plague-sign that reads, “Don’t Steal, The Government Hates Competition”.

Congressman Ron Paul is still in the race as a Presidential candidate. The main reason for his running as a Presidential candidate was to help all Americans solve the “Federal Reserve” problems. His election has brought up another topic that the Americans face, election fraud. Many times we hear about “election fraud” but how do the people learn what to do to address this serious issue. Finally someone has decided to attempt to challenge the election fraud in a court of law, the Federal Court. The lawyer filing the case, Richard Gilbert Esq. states that the reason for starting the case was because the duly elected delegates and alternate delegates for Dr. Ron Paul were being disenfranchised by several means in our caucuses and primaries this year, as well as continuing to be by the RNC. The case is SACV 12 _ 00927 DOC (JPRx), Delegates to the Republican National Convention vs the RNC, since Ron Paul is a Republican this is the party to which this is all addressed but he is not a party of this lawsuit. Just to be clear; when a case like this goes to a Federal Court it actually rules for all of the delegates in the Republican Party no matter their candidate. Interested parties can find the actual case fillings and the evidence at Our Voice Counts.

Education and becoming active on the issues of the Federal Reserve, Election Fraud, along with the Constitution could be a way to restore the American dream. One way is to UNITE and restore The Constitution of The United States in OUR Country.

The video link above contains the insight on what Ron Paul is explaining to the public. It is compilation of speeches, quotes and documentary (Mostly from Peter Joseph Zeitgeist documents). He is using statements on constitution, founding fathers and monetary policy, namely creating money from thin air, without going into details due nature of debates and media interviews. This video opens up that background and answers questions of people who are not fully aware of the details. This video should help on understanding the context what Ron Paul is discussing.
