Dear John,

I have some exciting news to share with you regarding our efforts to Audit the Fed!

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee recently reported Audit the Fed to the full House and H.R. 24 has been added to the Union Calendar.

This was the last crucial step that needed to be taken before a vote could occur in the House.

Now, all that stands between you and me and House passage is House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) scheduling the vote!

But John, I’m not taking anything for granted.

Not with all the games going on in Washington, D.C. these days – and Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen and the rest of the Fed’s apologists demanding Speaker Ryan KILL Audit the Fed.

That’s why it’s critical you sign your Audit the Fed petition to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) right away and make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 or even $25 to allow Campaign for Liberty to ratchet up the pressure.

As you’ll see, this petition urges Speaker Ryan to schedule a stand-alone vote on U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie’s (R-KY) Audit the Fed Bill (H.R. 24) IMMEDIATELY!

The truth is, scheduling a vote and passing Audit the Fed through the House should be a “no-brainer” for Speaker Ryan.

After all, he’s voted to pass Audit the Fed in the past.

It’s already passed through the U.S. House twice with overwhelming, three-fourths bipartisan margins in previous congresses.

Earlier this year, it was added as an amendment to the Financial CHOICE Act, which passed the House.

But truth be told, that’s what worries me.

That bill is highly unlikely to see Senate passage and may not even be taken up in this Congress.

And I’ve certainly seen politicians pull funny business like this before!

Sure, they claim to be our friends!

They can even point to a slew of past actions they’ve taken to “prove” to grassroots voters they’re with us!

But all the while, they’re using trickery and legislative maneuvering to KILL limited government reforms like Audit the Fed!

Is that what Speaker Ryan is doing here?

Have Janet Yellen and the Fed banksters convinced congressional leaders “they’ve done enough,” so they can avoid a showdown in the U.S. Senate, which they know you and I could win?

I sincerely hope not.

But the truth is, statists in BOTH parties understand there’s nothing that will bring the Big Government “utopia” they’ve created in Washington, D.C. crashing down faster than finally exposing the Federal Reserve!

Whether it’s never-ending spending programs driving our country to $20 TRILLION in debt – or one foreign policy disaster after another – the Federal Reserve has fueled everything you and I HATE about Washington, D.C. for decades.

But should my Audit the Fed Bill become law, it would finally show the American people that the Federal Reserve System leads to:

***  Ever-expanding Big Government and endless spending.  Now that politicians have figured out the Fed will just print money out of thin air to pay the bills if taxing and borrowing can’t make ends meet, BOTH parties continually spend like no tomorrow;

***  Constant economic crises.  The 2008 housing crisis and the resulting chaos is just one example of an economic bubble created by centrally planned interest rates and money manipulation.

Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen claims we’ll never see another like that in our lifetimes.  But evidence is mounting there’s another right around the corner!

***  The destruction of the middle class.  As food, housing, medical care, and education costs soar, everyone who is NOT on the government dole is forced to make do with less as the value of their money sinks;

***  Currency destruction.  History shows us that riots, violence, and full-scale police states can result when people finally realize our money isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on and REFUSE to accept it.

That’s why I’m counting on you to please CLICK HERE to sign your Audit the Fed petition to Speaker Ryan IMMEDIATELY.

If we can get Audit the Fed passed in the House, it will all come down to just a handful of votes in the Senate.

And with President Trump on record in support of Audit the Fed, what happens there is anyone’s guess.

If he’s truly serious about “Draining the Swamp” and DESTROYING Washington, D.C.’s corrupt power structure, which continues to leech off hardworking, everyday Americans, there’s no bigger step he could take.

But none of this can happen if House Speaker Paul Ryan refuses to budge.

That’s why I’m hoping to generate as many petitions as possible to Speaker Ryan at once.

If we can do so, it will send the message to Speaker Ryan that support for Audit the Fed is growing – just at the right time!  But we must act quickly to:

1)  Use mail and email to contact up to 12 million Americans from coast-to-coast to generate petitions just like these to Congress;

2)  Work the talk-radio lines to explain exactly why Audit the Fed is absolutely critical if Americans are ever going to Drain the Swamp in Washington, D.C.;

3)  Launch an all-out email and phone mobilization campaign to explain why the Federal Reserve MUST be exposed.

So, in addition to signing your petition to Speaker Ryan, will you please agree to a generous contribution of $500, $250, or $100?

I know that’s quite a bit to ask for.  But this is a critical time.

Fed apologists and Members of BOTH parties are going all out to stop you and me.

They know if you and I actually succeed in putting Audit the Fed on President Trump’s desk, Washington, D.C. will never be the same.

Exposing the Fed is the first critical step toward unraveling the Big Government Leviathan that intrudes in almost every aspect of our lives.

Of course, if $500, $250, or $100 just isn’t possible right now, I understand.

But will you please consider stretching and making a generous contribution – perhaps $50?  Or if that isn’t possible, perhaps $25 or even $10?

John, I’m really counting on your action

So will you please sign your petition and agree to your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, $25, or even $10 TODAY?

For Liberty,

Ron Paul
