I received a disturbing email from Ron Paul that the Federal Election Commission is coming after him and his Liberty supporting,Constitution supporting, and freedom supporting Organization the Campaign for Liberty.If the FEC gets it's way Ron Paul will be charged with various crimesthat Ron Paul is not allowed to discuss publicly due to anotheranti-free-speech gag order that he cannot talk about what theaccusations, charges, and even investigations are about and/or are for.
I received a email from Ron Paul detailing this:
Dear Liberty Activist, The FEC has launched a pair ofinvestigations on Campaign for Liberty.
Both are meritless, but could seriously disrupt our growing program.
Please read Campaign for Liberty President John Tate's letter below and stand with us.
This is exactly the type of government action to quell liberty that I have spent mylife opposing.
Congressman Ron Paul
Dear Friend of Liberty,
The best way to know you are succeeding in changing Washington is when youget attacked by the FEC.
And attack us they have!
I'm writing you this letter today not to scare you or to cry wolf. I'mwriting to let you know that our success has its price, and that priceright now is the wrath of the Obama Administration and its attack dogsat the Federal Election Commission.
I urge you to read this message and then sign the Declaration of Support (in which I ask foryour advice on a critical legal and moral question), as we are forcedinto battle with federal agencies and courts.
You see, this isn't theoretical. They've already come after us in multiple cases,alleging that Campaign for Liberty has acted illegally merely byputting the candidates on the record and reporting their positions.
My attorneys tell me we are under a gag rule and cannot go in to too many details or even tell you with what we have been charged andwhere the charges originated.
But I can say there have been at least two complaints filed in two different states against our issuediscussion activities.
They claim we are in violation of various FEC rules and laws.
Their allegations are completely false. And we must fight back now, or they will win and be able to silenceour movement.
You see, the Washington, D.C. establishment doesn't like to be challenged. They hate it when we fight back.
They are absolutely BESIDE themselves when we are winning.
In less than 2 years, your Campaign for Liberty has become a major forceon the American political landscape.
I can give you a list of our accomplishments, talk about our growth (we are approaching half amillion members), and show you press coverage from across the nationon our efforts.
But nothing shows our success more than how our enemies react when challenged.
When that happens, they do what they do best: use the power of the federal government toattack us.
They want to do one of two things: shut us up, or shut us down.
This battle is over a very fundamental idea - that Campaign for Liberty and our members should have a voice in lobbyingtheir legislators and exposing the radical views of candidates foroffice.
Exposing what they're up to - that's what the powers that be can't stand. That's because they don't want Americans to know:
** Congress is spending at a record pace and has now left us over 13 TRILLION dollars in debt, with no end in sight.
** The out of control FED has not accounted for nearly 2 trillion dollars and hasdoubled our monetary base, risking our entire economy.
** The federal government has imposed a mandate that every American eitherpurchase a health care product the Feds approve of, costing tens ofthousands of dollars, or risk fines and jail time.
** The federal government has attempted to take away your 1st, 2nd and 4thAmendment rights, all in the past year, with more certainly to come.
We're exposing them - and holding them accountable as they come back home to seek reelection.
Of course, this may not sound like the end of the world. But just think: the FEC has an ARMY of lawyersand a budget of nearly $70 MILLION dollars.
That's a lot of lawyers.
And add to it the fact that this group of people is adamantly against free speech under the First Amendment, and well, youhave a recipe for trouble.
Subpeonas. Depositions. Fishing expeditions that cover tens of thousands of documents.
Legal fees just to defend our right to free speech.
Thousands of hours of staff time to comply with their demands.
You can see where this is going.
If FEC radicals succeed, I will not even be allowed to tell you and your neighbors how candidates for the Houseand Senate (or for President in the future) have voted on Libertyissues, so you can put the heat on them when they are most likely tolisten.
Let me explain that a bit more.
For the first time ever, there is a nationwide group that is dedicated to holdingpoliticians accountable for their votes on Liberty issues.
It's Campaign for Liberty, and our over 450,000 members are doing battleacross the country to hold the politicians' feet to the fire.
Whether it is getting more than 300 sponsors for Audit the Fed, or lobbyingto stop Cap and Tax and Real ID schemes, Campaign for Liberty ismaking a difference.
And we're prepared to make an even bigger difference this fall, as the time comes to inform the people wheretheir candidates stand.
So the statists in Washington are out to make sure that doesn't happen.
Their main weapon is the Federal Election Commission.
The FEC has always been against free speech and a tool of the powerful elite in Washington, whodesperately seek to hang on to power.
But as bad as the FEC has been since its inception, with the Obama Administration in power, youand I face even more aggressive assaults on our free speech.
My attorneys have warned me that the puppets at the Federal ElectionCommission are ordering me to stop mobilizing hundreds of thousands ofAmericans against power grabs in Congress.
In doing so, they are trying to cripple our ability to stop dangerous legislation inCongress. If we continue to oppose these Liberty-stealing bills as wehave in the past, I face the danger of multimillion-dollar fines andeven a jail term!
In fact, I may even be questioned in court for writing this letter tonight.
I must make a decision soon. Should I allow the Federal Election Commission to tie my handsduring this crucial election year?
Or should I defy their gag-rule regulations . . . and face prosecution from the out ofcontrol federal authorities for exercising our right to politicalspeech?
other examples of the Abusive Federal Government gag restraining orders include a Teacher assaulting(Apparently rape and assault is ok now for federal officials!) and whenthe student protested on YouTube he received a courtorder shutting him up using a Restraining Order against him, Onthe Blagojevichtrial the Federal prosecutors are seeking a gag order to keep theex-Governor and his lawyers from making public comments which againviolate Freedom of Speech, and more and more The Federal Courts wants touse Gag Orders and judges acting like Gods on power trips that exceptto be well bribed and treated like they are our masters.
Ron Paul has been a higher target since he public said that Obama has thepower to assassinateAmerican citizens, Hespoke against the Iraq War that Obama promised to stop during hiscampaign for presidency, and Ron Paul has been vigorously attacking BigGovernments all the way to keep America from becoming a Police Stateand now the Federal election Commission by Obamas attack dogs havestarted a criminal investigation against Ron Paul and Campaign forLiberty.
If they succeed Ron Paul could lose his job as a politician, be barred from be allowed to being voted back in, and moreBig Government kooks could then complete the takeover of the Entire USCapital and the Supreme Court. If this happens our country will go thesame route as Germany did with Hitler and we will start seeing peoplebeing thrown in Concentration Camps here in this very country that issuppose to be free.
Those that support Ron Paul including me prays that his organization doesn't get shut down and if it does wewill fight the Obama Administration 5 times harder and show thatsocialist ba**ard what the spirit of America is about and what freedomof the press is about. The Constitution is what matters and Obamapromised to defend, protect, and abide by the Constitution againstenemies foreign and domestic. Obama promised and if he breaks hispromise and instead dismantles the Constitution and America he shouldbe hanged for treason.
