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.

Letter to Senate: Oppose the Nomination of Peter Diamond to Become Member of Federal Reserve Board of Governors

Dear Senator, FreedomWorks is a leading grassroots organizing fighting for lower taxes, less government and more freedom. I am writing to urge you to oppose President Obama’s nomination of Peter Diamond to become a Member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. While Peter Diamond did win the Noble Prize in economics, as Paul Krugman did, this should not be the deciding factor when considering a nominee. I urge you to take a serious look at his troubling policy positions that he has taken throughout his career.

Ron and Rand Paul Introduce Audit the Fed Legislation

With longtime Federal Reserve critic Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) the chairman of the House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) willing to lead the fight in the Senate, this is our best opportunity to pass a real Audit of the Fed. On Wednesday, the father and son duo introduced companion legislation, H.R. 459 and S.202, in both congressional chambers to require a full and thorough audit of the Federal Reserve.

The Fed Printing More Money Will Make Things Worse

Today, Chairman Ben Bernanke gave a big speech on the Federal Reserve’s next move in Boston. During his speech, Bernanke announced yet another round of “quantitative easing”. In plain English, this means that the Fed will fire up their printing presses to create more money. This likely won’t end well.
