“Yesterday, the House rejected Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed by a vote of 198-229. The Audit was included in a Republican motion to send the Dodd-Frank Fed Empowerment Act (H.R. 4173) back to committee.”- John Tate,Campaign For Liberty

The FED continues to wield power in Congress. Even some co-sponsors of HR1207 voted against it. It seems as if the enemies of freedom and liberty are in a lemming like mode to continue the weakening and hollowing out of what remains of our Constitution. Their purses are lined and re-election does not really matter any longer. They have done their part to further the betrayal of the Founder’s ideals. The promise of comfort and esteem in their transformed nation is enough to salve any thoughts of shame and disgrace.
Sadly, there are few heroes in either political party with the courage to stand up to this along with Congressman Paul. Party agenda’s dictate just how far even those “on our side” will go in the interest of Original Intent.

    There are no parties
    It is all a show for the public
    A fallacy of choice
    The puppet masters in corporations and banks cant have hr 1207, but their minions must co-sponsor for political points
    co-sponsoring does not equal a vote

  2. Rich says:

    Why don't you actually look into the record of the individual and not worry about what party they are with? It is the laziness of party politics that leads to us getting the dolts that we end up with.
    We truly get the government we deserve, when we can't take the time to look into what the individuals we vote for – stand for.
    Both the Republicans and Democrats are beholden to Big Business and Big Government. Its time to ban party politics and get back to the beliefs of one good man. He can be as conservative, or liberal as his constituency will select – But his constituency will know him for his record, if you aren't just voting along party lines.

  3. Jacqueline says:

    I agree with John. Please publish the list with the party affiliation included for every state….However, we must keep in mind that the Progressives have infiltrated EVERY political party. Therefore, a voter cannot assume that they can safely vote down party lines. We must know the candidate….we must do our homework and discover who is ultra liberal (The Progressive) and who is Conservative following the Constitution of our beloved country, A NATION UNDER GOD! What has to happen in this country before the crazies wake up and demand that this President and his appointees MUST GO! Take a long look at the destruction the PREARRANGED oil spill caused…..If Goldman Sachs, the CEO of BP and others sold their shares of BP stock a few days before the spill…..what do you really think caused the explosion? If you or I created this mess, we would be thrown in jail for good or more likely, we would be hung in the town square as a lesson for everyone else. Why are the Supreme Court Justices wearing a blind eye? Are they bought and paid for, too!
