This just came to me, hot off of the email presses. Listen up and listen good ladies and gentlemen. The vote we have been all waiting for is coming now, hundreds of cosponsors later and now we are at a critical point in our nation's history as a Free and Constitutional Republic on this single vote. The seeds of Revolution have been sown with this and now we wait to see them grow into something.
Time for us to jump into action.

November 18, 2009

Dear C4L Member,

A few weeks ago, we sent out an alert that Representative Mel Watt was attempting to water down H.R. 1207 in the House Financial Services Committee.

The latest reports we have received have informed us that a vote on the Watt amendment could come tomorrow!

There’s still time for us to stop this attack on Audit the Fed! Click here to get a full list of Financial Services Committee members, along with their contact information.

Financial Services leadership seems determined to include Audit the Fed as part of a regulatory reform package instead of passing it as a standalone bill.

While C4L will still do everything in its power to fight for a standalone vote on Audit the Fed on the House floor, it is critical we challenge Watt's amendment in Committee.

It will become much easier for our representatives to claim they still support Audit the Fed on the House floor if the Watt version passes, when, in reality, Representative Watt's amendment puts restrictions on Government Accountability Office audits of the Fed.

For example, Watt's amendment prevents the GAO from auditing or reviewing decisions to authorize, modify, extend, or terminate loans or liquidity facilities.

Congressman Paul will offer an amendment in Committee restoring an audit of the Fed’s entire $2 trillion balance sheet, but we have received word that some of the Democrat members may be waffling on their support for his amendment.

Help us turn up the pressure on these members! Below is the list of Democrats on the committee who have cosponsored H.R. 1207. Please call them and urge them to vote "Yes" on Ron Paul's amendment. Click on their names to get their web contact information.

1. Rep. John Adler, NJ (202) 225-4765

2. Rep. Travis Childers, MS (202) 225-4306

3. Rep. Steve Driehaus, OH (202) 225-2216

4. Rep. Alan Grayson, FL (202) 225-2176

5. Rep. Rubén Hinojosa, TX (202) 225-2531

6. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, FL Toll Free: 1-877-956-7627

7. Rep. Dan Maffei, NY (202) 225-3701

8. Rep. Brad Miller, NC (202) 225-3032

9. Rep. Walt Minnick, ID (202) 225-6611

10. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, CO (202)-225-2645

11. Rep. David Scott, GA (202) 225-2939

12. Rep. Brad Sherman, CA (202) 225-5911

13. Rep. Jackie Speier, CA (202) 225-3531

When contacting these members, remember that up to this point, they have been allies on this issue. A civil yet firm tone should be kept during these calls. They should be thanked for their cosponsorship, told that Mel Watt's changes to the bill are unacceptable, and urged to hold the line and honor their promise to support transparency at the Fed by voting "Yes" on Ron Paul's amendment.

And don’t forget to click here to get a full list of Financial Services Committee members.

For more information on the Watt amendment, check out this article by The Huffington Post's Ryan Grim.

We are continuing our work to achieve a standalone vote on H.R. 1207 on the House floor, but we must first stop the Watt amendment in the Financial Services Committee.

Make sure the Financial Services Committee members hear from you as soon as their offices open Thursday morning!

A vote could come any time tomorrow. Call, email, and fax the Financial Services Committee members to vote “Yes” on Congressman Ron Paul’s amendment.

In Liberty,

John Tate

As long as the majority of the American public is glued to their television, a succesful second American revolution will remain a naive pipedream.

Who's winning in X-Factor?

Or is it 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here'?

Anything distracting to the public is best, sweep the truth under the carpet eh?

I wouldn't have a clue. I haven't watched TV for months and I can't say I regret it.

It goes beyond mere distraction. It's a mixture of distraction and pure indoctrination.

I haven't watched TV for about 2 years, UNLESS there's something really interesting on, like a nature docu.
Its all doom and gloom anyways.
People should switch off and do the research themselves instead of swallowing up the spoonfed BS , but people are LAZY. They want the information given to them , it means there's no work to be done by them, let someone else do it instead.

Wish you all the luck in convincing them to audit the reserve!!

How would you know there is a nature documentary coming on unless you were watching TV..? (raise eyebrow)

I got the same e-mail.
As far as the T.V. goes, some times you can't help not finding out either from friends or on-line. Almost 1 year with out T.V.

You don't really believe that the FED will stand for this, do you?

The money is flowing, the elites losses have been recouped, and the DOW is going to reach record highs.

The rich are back to their favorite pastime, getting richer.

They see no problem, thus there will be no remedies.
