Why we should all support Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" legislation

This topic is very near & dear to my heart. Transparency at the deepest levels of government is critical for a functional Republic to remain as such.

Call, write, email, or visit your Senator today. Ask them to support S.604 if they value taxpayer dollars.

At its most basic function, an audit of the Federal Reserve would give the American people a long overdue look at where our dollar is lent, who holds our debts, who buys a stake in our nation, and well, who the heck is pulling our strings.

For virtually all Federal programs, Congressional oversight is mandatory. The American people, through their locally elected Representatives, have a right to review and make public how and where our money is spent.

But for too long, the Federal Reserve has been able to operate in secrecy with near zero accountability. We cannot accept this to continue. We must have a full audit of OUR money!
