Dear Friends of the American Monetary Institute,
Across the country, thousands of Americans continue to demonstrate to take back the power of government from the corrupt financiers, and to really give them the justice they so richly deserve! Last week, we opened our whistle-stop tour with the occupiers in Chicago. Listen to my message to the protesters. Ignore the glitches – we are learning fast! Read the text of what I wanted to say, and read here our contribution that the Huffington Post did not want on their site! Unbelievable? We think so too, but they wouldn’t post this one. Please re-broadcast it. Greg is very active with the Cleveland demonstrations. Warren is in Boston. Bob is in Seattle and Portland and Keith is in Spokane. Wherever you are, you could/should be distributing our one page flyers at your local demonstration!
Due to the immediacy of action, excerpts of our 7th Annual AMI Monetary Reform Conference Report will be available on our Youtube channel later this month. Editing of the Conference videos is nearly done. Complete sets of those talks are available shortly. Register before February 1st, 2012 for our special $225 rate for our 8th Annual AMI Monetary Reform Conference! Thank you for your one page action plans- we will be making the best ideas that we’ve gathered from them available through our website.
It is time for each and every one of us to get involved on a personal level. We need you to do the following:
This weekend, national actions were mounted to “Make Wall Street Pay.” Their idea is to mobilize marches to shut down certain egregious retail banks and organize a mass movement of consumer deposits from large banks to smaller banks and credit unions. This is a noble cause; we fully support this initiative to move money out of Wall Street. Unfortunately, if they think this campaign is a silver bullet, they are missing the point! We have limited power as consumers to reduce the reserves of large banks, as much of the money that backs our fractional reserve bank credit is held in pension funds, institutional deposits, and high net-worth individuals. To take our country back from Wall Street, we need to act collectively not only as consumers, but as citizens, and pass HR 2990. Get out our message by distributing our flyers for HR 2990 (Print them from here) and using Dick Distelhorst’s materials to speak publicly on HR 2990.
Continue sending us your reports by email on your successes and informative experiences at the rallies.
Organize people to recruit local leaders for monetary reform and pressure your Congresspersons to cosponsor HR 2990.
And of course read The Lost Science of Money book, so that you know what you are doing and how to separate the monetary wheat from the chaff!
Read this excellent blog post on HR 2990 and monetary reform. In your own words, write letters to your local newspapers and political blogs!
Best wishes! Good luck! Remember this is a non-partisan activity!
“Over time, whoever controls the money system
controls the nation.”
