URGENT: Hunger Strike To Audit The FED

Last night I had a dream.
Let me describe it to you patriots.

In this dream I was watching CNN live coverage of a "Hunger Strike To Audit The FED" I saw a group of people in a Church being interviewed...the headline at the bottom of the TV screen said "hunger strike enters it's third week" another headline then appeared "supporters of Congressman Ron Paul demand Federal Reserve to be audited"...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunger_strike

A hunger strike is a method of non-violent resistance or pressure in which participants fast as an act of political protest or to provoke feelings of guilt in others usually with the objective to achieve a specific goal such as a policy change. Most hunger strikers will take liquids but not solid food.

Gandhi engaged in several famous hunger strikes to protest British rule of India...

What are your thoughts?
All comments for and against this idea are welcomed.

Peace*))

Update - Liberty_Belle gave me an idea to have one day hunger strikes all across the nation.
One day - can you go without solid foods for one day?

I am interested.............(standby mode)....

the most important is preparing for fasting, location, and date if HR1207 is hijacked.

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they attack you, then you win!"
GANDHI

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they attack you, then you win!"
GANDHI

"The belief is worthless if the fear of social and physical punishment overrides the belief."

I am of the opinion that

the GOP would welcome the paulies engaging in a hunger strike, and would likely support it until every one of us was as thin as Lindsey Lohan and as dead and stiff as roadkill. Then after they shoveled us all up it would be back to business as usual.

Bad idea.

fasting is Very healthy

Gandhi was as thin as Linsey Lohan but 1000 times more healthy than her lol...I wish rawfoodforliberty would comment here.

do you remember this guy?

he courageously went on a 17 day hunger strike (and held up pretty well too). He was demanding to meet with McCain, but was pretty much just plain ignored. I don't mean this to be a discouraging post, but thought you might want to know about this. Senator Karen Johnson was in support of him if I remember correctly.

we are the Remnant

Thanks patriot

I did not know this story...lessons to be learned...perhaps if he was joined by others it would have had more effect?...

Thank you so much!

your comment made my day...for now we will give more time to the lawmakers but when they make this HR 1207 bill gutted and/or kill it then we will act.

A Hunger Strike

would only be effective against someone who had compassion.

How much compassion do you think this group has?

Weak and ineffectual, IMHO. They don't care if you die: that's the idea! You'd just be doing their work for them.

Gary

please research hunger strikes history - nobody will die - they will just loose some weight - fat...

Americans - Their hearts still have compassion - ...

What will a hunger strike do?

I still don't understand, because it's the equivalent of holding a knife to your own throat unless THEY change policy. Hey, if your dead, that's one less obstacle for them.

hunger strikes can be very effective and totally safe!

first of all we need to get the message to the 300 million Americans about the problem-cancer and when the message REALLY gets out who knows what will happen.

people take vitamins during hunger strikes....

Most give up and eat or die.

I did my research

Hunger strikes have never been effective. The strikers are always on the losing end and get carted away in their weakened state..

Honestly.. I cant see the

Honestly.. I cant see the den of vipers feeling any bit of guilt. My observation.

Love is the greatest force in the universe!

Gandhi was born into a middle-class Hindu family, in the city of Porbander, a small town on the western coast of India. At the age of 13, Gandhi entered into an arranged marriage with a 10-year-old girl named Kasturba. (They were to remain married their entire lives.)

In 1888, at the age of 19, Gandhi traveled to England to study law. After three years, he became a lawyer and returned to India, and after a year of practicing law unsuccessfully, he was offered a job by an Indian businessman with interests in South Africa. In 1892, at the age of 23, Gandhi traveled to South Africa, where he was to remain for over 20 years. At the time, the Indians in South Africa, mostly Hindus, had no legal rights. The European colonialists did not consider Hindus to be full human beings and referred to them as "coolies". Gandhi became a leader of the Indian community and, over the years, developed a political movement based on the methods of non-violent civil disobedience, which he called "satyagraha".

Around 1905, Gandhi gave up Western ways and, for the rest of his life, followed the traditional Hindu precepts of austerity and self-denial. He dressed simply, in a loin cloth and shawl, and had no other material possessions.

In 1915, at the age of 46, Gandhi returned to India, where he spent a year traveling widely and then the next few years, helping to settle many local disputes. His success lead to him being admired throughout the country, so much so that India's most well-known writer, Rabindranath Tagore, gave Gandhi the title Mahatma ("Great Soul"). Gandhi himself, however, repudiated the honor, even though, within the Hindu culture, being called "Mahatma" is a symbol of enormous respect.

At the time Gandhi was born, India was a heterogeneous region, a British colony consisting of more than 500 different "native states", that is, kingdoms and principalities. (Gandhi himself was born in the state of Kathiawar.) The native states were allowed a certain degree of local autonomy, but the country as a whole was controlled by strict British authority. Soon after his return to India, Gandhi dedicated himself to the goal of Indian independence. From 1920-1922, he led a "non-cooperation movement", in which he called upon Indians to stop cooperating with the British, to become self-reliant, and to withdraw from British organizations.

In 1922, the British authorities imprisoned Gandhi on charges of sedition (that is, inciting rebellion). In 1925, Gandhi was released due to ill health but, over his lifetime, he was to be imprisoned many times. Gandhi became a social reformer, working tirelessly to enhance Hindu-Muslim relations, as he slowly led his country into independence. Over the years, he founded many newspapers, which he used to further his ideals. (A little known fact is that Gandhi is one of the principal figures in the history of Indian journalism.)

Gandhi developed satyagraha into a national movement, stressing passive resistance, nonviolent disobedience, boycotts and, on occasion, hunger strikes.

gandhi is one of my heroes.

gandhi is one of my heroes. but i believe, in this day, the system has designed itself not to care or provide love to anyone under these circumstances. it may still work in places like india. but gandhi didn't even completely achieve his goal in that time. the colonialization still imposed divide and conquer between muslims and hindus, pakistan and india. so, i think the best way is just to continue on our path, as tireless as it may seem. phone calls, emails and faxes have us this far. 311 co sponsors, a ton of media coverage and awareness of the fed's activities. that happened in less than a year.

Thank you for your comment Annica2

I agree with your points here - but what if in the end this bill is gutted or killed by Senate? it is good to prepare for this occurence as we know very well with what evil force we are dealing with here.

Media would have to do coverage of this and help awaken millions of people.

Ron Paul mentioned many times that Gandhi is one of his heroes - but what can I say - nobody no human being is perfect and Gandhi had his imperfections.

Peace*))

Why?

Why should I cause myself discomfort or inconvenience to protest the Fed? Will they care?

To have any effect I would have to make a major show of it. "Hey everybody I'm not eating today." Who cares? Who would even know?

The only reason for fasting is to concentrate one's own attention on spiritual matters. It is to make yourself more spiritually aware. It is certainly NOT to make a public show of yourself.

Better to spend the day campaigning for your favorite candidate. Maybe you might work a day and dedicate the earnings to the political or other cause of your choice.

There are better and more effective ways to make your concerns known.

This is unbelievable

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Yoink

I know what the sheriff did was wrong, but it was a bit funny to watch.

Anyway, I hope the cops get put in jail for this. It really disrupts the veil of authority that holds that court together.

There is a great line in Starship Troopers "...force my friends is violence...the supreme authority from which all other authorities are derived."

Cops represent the will to use violence. That will to use violence gives courts (and lots of other things) authority. We tolerate Cops will to use violence because we think they are good guys. But when we see that the cops in the court are not good, the court loses ALL authority.

I'm surprised more people didn't stand up from the rows to say something.

Anyway, a hunger strike is only effective in a culture that values hunger strikes morally. They worked in India for Gandhi ONLY because that culture valued hunger strikes.

What works in the US? Consumerism, productivity, media, guns.

Ron Paulers are trying, rather poorly, to fight on a media scale. They should completely ignore the media...and create their own, but that won't happen because they lack the courage and resources...and frankly the media is sooo controlled it's ridiculous.

Ron Paulers, in fact, everyone should get guns,but I *KNOW* people don't have the guts to use them...so they should try a combination of cutting back on comsumerism and productivity. Simply stop working (and of course, stop spending).

IT'S ALL ABOUT PRODUCTIVITY! Hello, McFly, you are fighting corporatism. Corporatism runs on productivity...that is the key to their profit margin. Learn from the unions...they attack wages, hours, etc...these are the metrics of productivity.

People love to say how incompetent the government is, but look at how they keep up the roads, keep the schools running, police, military, etc. The governments focus on things that keep us productive. When you get hurt, they don't care...just look at the difference between the healthcare that active soldiers and veterans get.

But I know you guys won't threaten your jobs...you live your life so stupidly that you will have to work all your life. Thus, you actually need corporatism, you need people to take care of you, you need the Fed. You may hate that you need them, but you do.

Note: By "you", I mean the vast majority of people...not you specifically.
