Kickoff Rally a Huge Success!

Hi everyone! We've now launched the Tea Party Express II: Countdown to Judgment Day with a giant rally in San Diego. It was incredible!! The crowd was huge - numbering in the thousands! The sun was shining on this naval town with our rally on the water and the U.S.S. Midway serving as the backdrop. Sorry Keith Olbermann and any critics of the Tea Party Express - but "We The People" came together in San Diego today and our voice was heard!

I can't begin to tell you how exciting the event was and how meaningful it was for all of us. If you were there you know the energy that radiated through the crowd.

The speakers at the rally were great - including nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Roger Hedgecock and California conservative hero, Chuck DeVore, who is challenging Barbara Boxer for Congress. The musical performers were great. It just doesn't get any better than this.

Take Action to Defend a Legitimate Audit

Dear Supporter of Transparency,

On Tuesday, Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Bob Corker
(R-TN) introduced "The Federal Reserve Accountability Act
," an attempt to derail HR 1207/S 604 by passing a bill
that prevents a full audit and full transparency from
America's secretive central bank.

While language in this bill would permit a limited audit
of the Fed's actions in the Troubled Asset Relief Program
(TARP) and similar high profile bailouts, it would not
allow an audit to review the Fed's inflation of the money
supply or its agreements with foreign central banks,
among other shortcomings.

Additionally, the names of the institutions who received
the funds would not be available until one year after
each "emergency" program ended, which is nowhere in sight
Click here to get the contact information for your
senators and urge them not to support this attempt
at stopping our historic effort to force the Fed into
a full scale audit.
Seventy-five percent of the American people, over
two thirds of the House of Representatives, and over
a quarter of the Senate support Ron Paul's Audit the
Fed legislation.
With those historic levels of support, there is no
excuse for settling for anything less than a full
Audit the Fed bill. Anything less is merely an attempt
to stop our efforts as we get closer to passage of a
real bill.
Let your senators know you expect them to support the
American people's demand for full transparency, not http://www.auditthefed.com/?mode=actionpage
some watered down measure designed to stop a full audit!
