September 22, 2012 National “End the Fed” rally day: a day in which protestors gathered outside of Federal Reserve establishments across the nation in order to call attention to currency-debasing practices of the Federal Reserve. The rallies came within weeks of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke announcing that the Federal Reserve would be implementing a third round of quantitative easing (Q.E.3), a practice with which many of the protestors voiced frustration. Charlotte was home to North Carolina’s chapter of the National End the Fed rally.
North Carolina State House Rep. Glen Bradley stated while addressing the protestors, “(By the Constitution) The value of money is directly attached to public election for a reason. Without it, our savings and our children’s savings are stolen by the inflation tax and we don’t even have a voice. No taxation without representation! I think I’ve heard that before. You would not vote to lay debt upon your own children, and you would not vote to steal the money from your own dollars and give them to the government or to private banks, so YOU are not being represented. The fed’s claim to fame is that it’s private and that it’s secret, so it’s away from all this political pressure. No. It’s been taken away from the voters now.” http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/25614208
Special thanks to a couple of hard-working “unsung” liberty heroes:
Michael Heise, 23-year old organizer of the National End the Fed rally effort and Chuck Suter, North Carolina grassroots organizer of the Charlotte End the Fed rally.
