As many of you know Peter has created a FREE phone banking system on his website www.schiffforsenate.com. He has already gotten thousands of calls out to Republican voters in CT.
Many of us have decided to organize a call bomb on July 18th. THIS SUNDAY. Make as many calls as you can, its 100% free for landlines. Could someone organize a website for this? We should set a goal of 2,000 people calling 50 people. Thats 100,000 voters hearing grassroot support for Peter Schiff.

July 15 (Reuters) - Banks repossessed a record number of U.S. homes in the second quarter, but slowed new foreclosure notices to manage distressed properties on the market, real estate data company RealtyTrac said on Thursday.
The root problems of job losses and wage cuts persist, making a sustained U.S. housing recovery elusive.
Banks took control of 269,962 properties in the second quarter, up 5 percent from the prior quarter and a 38 percent spike from the second quarter of last year, RealtyTrac said in its midyear 2010 foreclosure report.
Repossessions will likely top 1 million this year.
A dumbfounding study roughly a decade ago that many now find hard to believe revealed that if people are asked to focus on a video of other people passing basketballs, about half of watchers missed a person in a gorilla suit walking in and out of the scene thumping its chest.
Now research delving further into this effect shows that people who know that such a surprising event is likely to occur are no better at noticing other unforeseen events - and may even be worse at noticing them - than others who aren't expecting the unexpected.
The so-called "invisible gorilla" test had volunteers watching a video where two groups of people - some dressed in white, some in black - are passing basketballs around. The volunteers were asked to count the passes among players dressed in white while ignoring the passes of those in black.
These confounding findings from cognitive psychologists Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris detailed in a 1999 study revealed how people can focus so hard on something that they become blind to the unexpected, even when staring right at it. When one develops "inattentional blindness," as this effect is called, it becomes easy to miss details when one is not looking out for them.

Make sure you watch the short videos.
New types of money are popping up across Mid-Michigan and supporters say, it's not counterfeit, but rather a competing currency.
Right now, you can buy a meal or visit a chiropractor without using actual U.S. legal tender.
They sound like real money and look like real money. But you can't take them to the bank because they're not made at a government mint. They're made at private mints.
In part one of NBC25's special series "Competing Currencies," NBC25's Dan Armstrong showed how the government says any private business can accept or refuse any kind of payment.
In part two, Dan goes deeper, discovering why certain businesses say it's better to have private currency than actual U.S. legal tender.
There was a time in America when you could buy four gallons of gas for a dollar.
That dollar came in the form of a coin, around one ounce, made mostly of silver.
In today's market, that same coin is worth about 10 times its face value because of the silver.
Therefore, that same coin in theory, could still buy around four gallons of gas.
The United States as we know it has ended, Alex Jones warns, as the nation has lost credit rating with China, its Dollar reserve status ending as the country saddled by debt and unable to fund programs prepares to submit to IMF style austerity measures.
People who say we should bomb this country should be FORCED to watch this video! Do you really wanna bomb those people?!! ARE YOU INSANE??????

Dear Friend of Liberty,
Fresh from the July 4 recess, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trying his best to ram through another big government powergrab as quickly as possible.
A cloture vote on H.R. 4173, the so-called “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” (which should really be called the Dodd-Frank Fed Empowerment Act), is expected in less than 24 hours.

Meet Kelly Nguyen!!
Dear Kelly Nguyen Supporter,
This is Travis Jones, campaign manager for Kelly Nguyen. Over these next four days, we will be holding the Nguyen For The Win Moneybomb, and I am writing today to ask you to help spread the word. The Moneybomb is an on-line fundraising effort to help us raise cash needed for the last stretch of Georgia's 5th district primary race.
If one owes a bank a thousand dollars, he has a problem. But if one owes a bank a billion dollars, then the bank has the problem. From the four years I spent in China, I assure you this truism is not lost on the Chinese, though one must never forget the banks’ nifty little ability to create their own money.
