Over the rainy weekend that just past, hundreds of sound money advocates gathered at the federal reserve building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to protest the existence of the extremely secretive federal reserve that was enacted by Congress just a few days before Christmas in 1913.
Along with protesting in front of the federal reserve building, several individuals such as: Ernie Hancock, Adam Kokesh, Larken Rose, Scott Davis, and Darren Wolfe gave short speeches. After the speeches were wrapped up, we began on our marching route that started out on Market Street and ended at Buffalo Billiards on Chestnut Street. During the march, we handed out hundreds if not thousands of fliers while listening to Jordan Page who was playing live music from a float being pulled along the route in the street that was being escorted by the Philadelphia Police Department.
This happens to be my 4th consecutive end the fed rally and I must say that each time the crowd is growing larger and becoming more diverse. By diverse, I mean that there are a lot more younger citizens concerned about rising inflation and the endless bailouts of big banks and big corporations; the ethnic diversity is constantly expanding; and everyone from Democrats to Republicans and Libertarians to Anarchists is starting to become more aware about the cartel known as the federal reserve.
We rally twice a year in April and November in hopes of continuing to educate the public about the fraudulent and illegal ways the cartel goes about doing their business. It is our best hope that enough individuals wake up to the grim reality of a total economic collapse that is brewing if the federal reserve is not ended and the power is once again restored by congress to coin money as laid out in Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution which reads:
To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;
while Article 1 Section 10 which is the powers prohibited of states has this to say about money:
No State shall…coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;
