AFP AUDIO INTERVIEW
Wendy Bidwell, the Director of The Project to Restore America, discusses her organization and its goals, the primary one being applying pressure to United States Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), to bring the Senate’s version of the Audit the Fed bill, S. 202, to the floor for a vote, in this informative interview (18:04).
Push for Bill to Audit Fed Focuses on Senate Action
• Americans must rally behind S. 202 to achieve victory
A new AMERICAN FREE PRESS advertiser has a new message: let’s restore America. In fact, the name of their campaign is The Project To Restore America, which seeks nothing less than a way to restructure America’s governance. The advertiser, Stansberry & Associates Investment Research, began the project to “fix the underlying causes of our major national problems by establishing three new amendments to the Constitution.”
The three new amendments are a balanced budget at every level of government, sound money backed by our country’s large gold reserve and a change in the tax structure, so every American can keep 80% of their income.
The Project believes that “we have to fundamentally restructure our system. There must be more balance between rights and responsibilities. There must be some fundamental limit on spending and on taxes. And finally, we need a logical way to put a stop to the narrowing of the tax base. Everyone who votes should share in the burdens of government—otherwise the incentive will always exist to vote for more government spending, no matter how high taxes (and debts) rise.”
And the Project has made it easy to have your voice heard, and it’s all free. All you need is a computer, an Internet connection and some time. Currently, 55,000 Americans have signed onto the Project and that number is expected to climb to over 100,000 by year’s end.
The brain behind the Project is Frank Porter Stansberry, who founded Baltimore-based Stansberry & Associates Investment Research in 1999, which publishes Stansberry’s Investment Advisory, a monthly newsletter that discusses safe value investments. The newsletter is independent, which means it is not beholden to advertisers, so is free to tell the truth, much along the same lines as the paper you’re now reading.
This year Stansberry launched a radio program, which is currently one of the top ten investment shows in America each week. Last year, Stansberry produced a video entitled “End of America,” which forecasts the end of America’s global economic dominance. It has gone “viral,” meaning it has spread rapidly and has been viewed by over 20 million Americans, as well as being featured on many U.S. media outlets.
In order to gain a fuller understanding of the Project, AFP conducted an exclusive interview with Wendy Bidwell, the director of The Project To Restore America.
“We are trying to inform Americans about the real underlying problems of what we’re experiencing in our day-to-day lives. We’re also trying to do something about it. It’s real grass-roots activism. This is our way of holding our elected officials accountable, so that they would do what they said they would do, and what the constituents want them to do.”
The Project’s main push is the Audit the Fed bill, overwhelmingly passed in the House (H.R. 459), and languishing in the Senate, compliments of Harry Reid (D-Nev.), although polls indicate over 75% of Americans are in favor of the bill. Bidwell hopes the Project can force a vote on the bill, S. 202, by flooding Senators’ offices with petitions, through email and the good old-fashioned U.S. Post Office, referred to as “snail mail,” buy Internet-savvy types.
Bidwell is confident the Project can have an impact through a focus on S. 202.
“I think if we make our huge push around one bill, that’s already been drafted, that’s already been passed in the House, and we don’t stop putting on that pressure, then I think we’ll see a change.”
