The Day Liberty Fought Back

April 26, 2009

Patriots stage “End the Fed” Nationwide Protest

“[A central bank is] a curse to a republic; inasmuch as it is calculated to raise around the administration a moneyed aristocracy dangerous to the liberties of the country.”-

-President Andrew Jackson

As the sun rose, I alertly got prepared for a day that will be remembered in history.

I give my friend a ring, and three hours later we’re anxiously zigzagging through traffic on the freeway toward downtown San Antonio. We were on our way toward that putrid building that is the Federal Reserve Bank Branch of San Antonio.

We struggle to find parking but eventually do so, and we shuffle toward the crowd of non-violent renegades who were already in progress of protesting against the Federal Reserve Bank. It was a sizeable crowd of about 80 to 100 concerned Americans who understand the irony and illegitimacy of a private bank that is able to control the amount of money that floods the market.

Speeches were given by various lovers of liberty, calling for an end to a bank that is in no way federal and monetary policy reform.

Signs, music, and eye opening newsprint sources (Libre included of course) surrounded the bank of debt and deceit. The fight for freedom and liberty permeated the atmosphere and flooded San Antonio with constructive civil disobedience; it was hard not to feel like you were part of something bigger than everyone there.

Funny thing is, for the unaware at large, it was bigger than just this one protest in San Antonio. The truth is, this happened in 39 different cities: New York, Seattle, Chicago, and Houston to name a few.

Despite all the revolutionary rhetoric and symbolism, national media outlets didn’t cover the national protest. The conclusion could be taken that the event must have been “truth” driven if CNN or MSNBC wasn’t all over it. We must excuse the mainstream media as they are on their honeymoon with Obama’s victory.

Anyway, all this took place on November 22, 2008. This day has been important in the history of our country. Not only is it the supposed beginning of the end of the fed, but it is also the day when John F. Kennedy was struck down for reasons people still speculate over.

Kennedy holds a very special place in people’s hearts everywhere and rightfully so. Unbeknownst to many Americans, Kennedy bravely tried to get rid of the Federal Reserve. He had come up with Executive Order 11110 which would have given the government the ability to print their own currency backed by silver, and would have prevented the Federal Reserve Bank from printing new dollars on interest.

The dangers of continually allowing the private bank to control our currency has been echoed in the past by Thomas Jefferson who said,

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

With that being said, there is at least one congressman who understands the dangers of a private banking cartel. A lowly congressman from Texas, Ron Paul, has introduced the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act.

The only thing that could be hoped for is that, when and if this ever goes to be voted on, the rest of our representatives will keep in mind the thousands of people across the country that are in favor of such legislation, and the fact that Kennedy tried to eliminate the debt driven atrocity as well.

With a recent CNBC report, on November 28, stating that there is going to be at least 7.36 trillion dollars being spent on this whole bailout the time to act is now.

People must do what they can in order to make sure that our government hears the cry against the tyrannical money manipulators through protest, letters, or just informing a fellow citizen.

May efforts of great men like John F. Kennedy never be taken for granted; instead, let it be remembered for the fight for American prosperity.

Let us not forget the people who stormed these banks peacefully either, for it is only the beginning.
