EPJ: Rand Paul Has Turned 'End the Fed' Into 'End the Moneybombs'

The Campaign for Liberty is running a money bomb today. An EPJ reader emails:

FYI - AUDIT THE FED [money bomb] has gathered only $70,000.00 so far. To me, this is VERY disappointing. It tells me, that only 7000 people (!) were able to pitch in $10.00?

WTF!? Please pardon my "French". Seriously. WHAT THE heck, is going on, in America, when 80% of the public supposedly supports a full Audit of the 'Fed', yet, Campaign for Liberty has only received $70,000.00 in donations ?!!! This is the single most important issue facing us, as Americans today. Nearly every other problem can be traced back to this one.

What has happened is Rand Paul, with his absurd claim during his endorsement of Mitt Romney that Romney holds an opinion similar to that of Ron Paul on End the Fed, is making a lot of people very suspicious of the direction of the Campaign for Dollars Liberty.

The fact that Rand Paul wants to change the focus of the Campaign for Dollars Liberty to internet freedom rather than End the Fed is mighty suspicious, to many.

Bottom Line: Rand Paul is quickly turning the Campaign for Liberty contribution list into something as valuable as the list of people who own Jesse Benton is my hero buttons.

Next stop for Rand: A Cato fest speech. Maybe the Campaign for Liberty should run a money bomb calling for the TSA to follow the rules, when groping.

I think a lot of our

I think a lot of our opposition fears Rand and the popularity he is breeding. Just look at all the negative posts here regarding him. If they weren't just so excessive in their vitriol, I might believe the motivation, but as it is, it looks like they are just members of our opposition who are working early to discredit Rand and turn us away from him.

I gave $250 to C4L when it

I gave $250 to C4L when it started, but started to see it wasn't going the right direction soon after and stopped. One of the main things C4L does are these worthless petition drives that just end up in the trash cans of our so-called members of Congress.

While they do some outreach to the young people, this should be by far the biggest focus. They need to be sending out works by Locke and the other great thinkers, along with some of the new works by Woods, the Judge and others to the college campuses and making sure there is no want of this. Frankly, they should also be sending voices like Woods, the Judge, Dr. Paul (obviously) and others around to the campuses to spread the message. The older generations have been brainwashed and by-in-large won't come around until the bottom falls out. There are exceptions, those who take the time to educate themselves, but the majority get their "education" with MSM propaganda.

The young people are and will continue to see the screw job they are in store for and will come to our banner. This is the new generation that will bring back the Founding or will see the total destruction of America as we know it. This is who we need to rally.

Tom Woods and others have pointed to the problems of C4L in other sectors, but this is overlooked.

I stopped

giving money to this cause the minute Rand gave his tribute to Romney on Hannity's show. I still believe in Liberty, but this movement I have become skeptical of in enough ways that I don't feel my money is going towards the platform of Liberty any longer.

I know there are people that refuse to give up and will scorn me and others for feeling this way, but to denounce us and tell us to leave is becoming more caustic than the progressive Romnoids or marxist followers of Obama.

Liberty is taking a big hit and is in jeopardy of becoming tabled to an ineffectual movement unless more people in the Liberty movement start following their own 'initial' advices that brought us all here.

They keep calling me at strange time

They call me at 5 in the morning or 8 at night wtf is wrong with CFL

Let's see, its OK for Ron to

Let's see, its OK for Ron to endorse Reagan, Newt Gingrich, Dennis Hastert and John Boner, but Rand can't endirse ROmney. Right. These lew rockwell cobnuts need to be dumped before they derail the liberty train.

A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Thomas Jefferson. A vote for Rand Paul is a vote for James Madison.

Ron and Romney

This is wrong on many counts. Anger at Rand goes way beyond the Lew Rockwell circle, and you of course know that. You are not an absolute moron.

Second, you're saying giving your parents 30 mins notice before going on an anti-Ron show to endorse a neocon is admirable behavior?

Third, you are basically saying Ron ought to endorse Romney. Hey, it's no big deal, right?

yes it is

Dont use facts, this is a cult

RP Just Said On Cavuto His Audit The Fed Will Probably Pass

Why the heck do they need our money? Sounds like people in the campaign are trying to bleed us for everything we have. Pure greed and nothing else!

Don't know about purity

.. but I have come a ways to understanding a "representative" meatbag in a suit never has, and never will serve my best interest. They don't know me, and I have quit supposing to know them. There is only one Ron Paul, and the rest can go to blazes.

Know about the Fed and the Rothschild clan. Get an audit, then what? Incite public outrage? I'm already outraged. My peers and family are outraged. Enough evidence already to throw the lot of the Feds and half of Wall Street in jail for life.

CFL is starting to sound like the tele-evangelists my grandmother used to send all her money to .. while she ate low grade cat food and went without utilities. Dumping money into a reckless bottomless pit with the hope the soul will be saved.

This turnip is bled dry. What are they going to do with the money that they can't do right now? Short of hiring some Mafia hit men, we seem to be pissing in the wind.

They started this internet

They started this internet freedom thing because End the Fed has already become mainstream, its time for them to push another agenda to the fore-front.

First thing I did when I received the letter

from C4L and Rand Paul: I unsubscribed :) Fk Rand Paul and the Campaign 4 Liberty.

Same here

I also sent a note with any snail mail I receive from Rand, telling him that because he endorsed Mitt, I have put him in my Spam folder.

Good.

The less money is wasted on trying to change the nature of the beast which is a non solution the more money can be spent on killing the beast(non violently of course) which actually is a solution.

actually

what happened was 0 coverage on the dailypaul. i understand camp for lib is different than ron but i think dp should have one of those graphics on the front page. i don't think it has anything to do with rand.

exactly what

I was thinking. I thought, "there was an end the fed money bomb?"

is, IMHO, seriously misguided. Better lick yer finger n stick it up there again, or better yet, look for the TRUTH...

I'm with Rand

100%

Oh that's right you're the Romney guy,

who plans on destroying within. You and Randy should get together because I'm sure you have the same plan.
 
I can only hope Randy is starting to understand the consequences of his game plan before he is drunk on that DC Kool-Aid.

I'm not a destroyer, I;m a rEVOLUtionist.

Rand is not a destroyer either, and I'd be more than happy to get with him, though I think he's WAY ahead of me, and I highly respect him.

I'm with Rand about 90%-95%

I'm with Rand about 90%-95%

Best I can do is 85%.

fortune favors the bold

A Rand Paul Presidency

would not reduce government by one cent. He just doesn't believe in liberty the way his dad does.

Well his budget proposal is

Well his budget proposal is 2nd to only his father's, he's never voted for a tax hike or to raise the debt ceiling so I'm not sure what you're basing your opinion on.

his opinion is based

on conspiracy theories.

ah, the standard

ah, the standard marginalization tactic! its getting a bit tired

More hacks posting crap to try to divide us. This is crap.

Take your $100 Million or so in Bankster PAC money and spend it somewhere else.

dumb article

Most privy to the way congress is wont have a chance to get out of the senate with Reid there. Does the EPJ author have any clue? Why should everyone drop a million to C4L for this?

https://twitter.com/#!/Agonzo1

Well, if it is "our money" and it came from "us" and if Rnn

Paul has 3.3 Million dollars that he is not going to use to campaign with then why don't we tell him to use it on something we all believe in like END THE FED?
