Ron Paul Revolution lives

Here's an excerpt from an email I received today from a member of the NYC Ron Paul meetup group:

What: Battle the Federal Reserve
When: September 22, 2008 12:00 PM

As some of you are aware, I am putting together a little PR Stunt/ Protest at the Federal Reserve on Monday at 5pm. We are printing up Monopoly Money dollars w/ Ben Bernanke's face on it and handing them out to the public outside of the Federal Reserve. We'll all be wearing business suits (black preferably) and carrying brief cases full of Bernanke Dollars. I plan on sending out press releases and calling into radio stations to get some exposure.

With the financial melt-down in full swing, we have an opportunity to get a lot of press and exposure.

We need someone to design a back to the dollar that has the following:

The Federal Reserve is a private bank
The Federal Reserve has never been audited
The Federal Reserve prints money out of thin air
The Federal Reserve destroys your savings
The Federal Reserve uses your savings to bail out corporations
The Federal Reserve caused the financial crises
The U.S dollar is as valuable as a Monopoly money

Here is what
the paper will look like.

Needless to say, I love the enthusiasm and activism even though I don't necessarily agree with the entire message. The subject - monetary policy - is very relevant. It really does matter.
