The Value Of A Dollar – Pass The Buck And Mind Your Own Money

On a different yet similar note regarding the value of a dollar, the email message that is listed below is the most recent in my personal inbox, and as I read through it wondering how it even came to my box as I am not a follower of the sender, I do know the meaning of value, and felt it best to add some (value) here to Your Friendly Neighborhood by simply passing the buck along to those who may have an interest in the message or its subject matter which is stated in the title of this entry.


Since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913, the dollar has lost 97% of its value.

TODAY, after almost 100 years of the Fed destroying our money with its secretive manipulations, we have an opportunity to finally do something about it. As early as tomorrow, the U.S. House of Representatives will – after years of inaction – hold a vote on Congressman Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency Act, better known as “Audit the Fed”.

This morning, I emailed every Member of the House of Representatives urging them to vote YES on this historic legislation. I’m emailing you today to ask you to do the same with your Representative.

Just last week, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke again expressed his opposition to Rep. Paul’s bill. To me, that tells us everything we need to know about why it is crucial that Congress finally require an outside audit of the Federal Reserve’s activities. If the Fed doesn’t want to operate in the open, if they want to keep making secretive decisions behind closed doors about OUR money, too bad.

If you haven’t seen it already, take a quick look at the video we released recently about the Federal Reserve, its secrecy, and the need to replace that secrecy with transparency.

And today, please let your Representative in the House of Representatives know that you are watching, and that you respectfully request a YES vote for the Federal Reserve Transparency Act.

Thank you.
Governor Gary Johnson

P.S. Tomorrow’s vote in Congress is just a first step. This fall, there must be a voice in the national Presidential Debates who will stand up to the central bankers and the Federal Reserve. Go to and help me provide that voice!


A different perspective to consider.
