Senator Rand Paul Threatens to Delay Fed Confirmations Until Audit the Fed Gets a Vote

A no-brainer issue that should unite practically everyone is auditing the Federal Reserve. Some may find it hard to believe that the central bank of the United States has never been fully audited. The public and even Congress is left in the dark about what goes on behind closed doors at the Fed. This severe lack of transparency is troubling since the central bank has so much power over the economy and our lives.

If at first you don't succeed...Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke offered a robust defense of the effectiveness of the central bank's easy-money policies in his speech Friday at the Fed conference here, and left little doubt that he is looking toward doing more to give the economy a lift at the Fed's next policy meeting in September.

The Dollar Sailing on the Titanic

Do you trust the government with your money?  Perhaps a better question to ask is do you trust Ben Bernanke and Timmy Geithner with your money?  If you answered yes to any of those questions here is an interesting little fact for you.  Did you know that the value of our currency has decreased by 95% since 1913, which was when the Federal Reserve was created?  There are some who have come to understand that our fiat based currency is hardly worth the paper it was printed on, which is why people have started to buy gold and silver.

The Federal Reserve Must Be Audited!

Since the Federal Reserve opened its doors in 1914, it has never been audited. It remains the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government. Our dollar has lost 97 percent of its value since its creation. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) have both introduced the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act would eliminate the current audit restrictions placed on the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and require a full and thorough audit of the Federal Reserve.

Montana's Sound Money Bill

Montana's representatives have passed a sound money bill through the state's House.  The bill would allow gold currency to compete with Federal Reserve Notes in the state.  The bill reads, "the state may not require but shall allow a person to recognize, receive, pay out, deliver, promise to pay, or otherwise use or employ gold and silver coin or electronic gold currency as media of exchange."
