Hi, FedUp...Thanks for the heads-up on this movement. If there is an event in Portland on Nov 22 count me in. I'm sorry I missed the Seattle riots. We desperately need a multi-party political machine in the U.S. , similar to what nore democratic EU countries employ. But educating our self-absorbed commercially-programmed dumb-ass populace will be a huge undertaking. Given the projected depth of this current recession (depression?), enough people here may be finally awakened to the ills of out monetary system and the evils of the FED. The trick will be to convince them that we already have the power for change written into our constitution. And those who are beaten down but still able to crawl, and those on economic life-support (thanks to MRoosevelt-era New Deal policies) will, I think still be asking the jailors who beat them up to please not beat them anymore, and please don't cut off the life support, and they'll be threatened with anarchy and social collapse thru the media if they should attempt to make change. So, I fear that the same clowns who wrecked this train will re-organize and rebuild the torn up tracks going in the same direction. What we need is the rest of the world to avoid the current model and the U.S. dollar like the plague. This may happen, as many countries that have adopted laissez-faire capitalism, especially those recent adoptors, haven't the benefit of New Deal protections for the masses of suddenly-disenfranchised citizens. It will depend on how their leaders respond to the needs of their people vs the wants of the West's bankers. Hopefully they will organize and adopt new cooperative systems that our citizens and "clean" legislators may become a part of. This new system needs to rely on worker-profit capital, not investor-profit capital for R@D, expansion of industries, etc, and get the hell away from dirty energy (wind, solar, wave, geothermal, tidal electricity generating facilities and new power grids can deliver this clean energy to hydrogen electrolizing plants for hydrogen-powered and elecric transportation needs), as investment bankers and dirty energy are the root of most wars. A world without investors, one in which workers would be rewarded justly instead of exploited, and a world in which cooperation and bargaining for natural resources instead of warring for them is the place I want my grandchildren to inherit. Dumping the FED and their failed, exploitative policies is a big step in the right direction.
I keep referring to the following video by a brilliant economics professor who I admire very much for his impeccible honesty and integrity. He's been under seige at the college he teaches for his outspoken views. He is a good friend of Ward Churchill, Stan Goff and Mike Levine (Goff and Levine have written several books on the lies and social engineering of our government) and my friend, James Craven keeps an interesting, informative website:
Here's the video:

Let's end the Fed, but be aware of the fact that everything is not what it seems. Ending the Fed might just put us in the hands of a bigger Fed. How about a currency controlled by the same people under the name of a one world currency? Then we are really screwed.
