Tomorrow is my birthday, don’t go putting any effort into anything for me, seriously on the record I generally don’t care about the day I was born. However, sometimes things align and you get a “birthday present” from the universe or a good friend who doesn’t even know it is your birthday and he doesn’t even realize it is a gift in the first place.
Tomorrow I likely will receive such a gift!
Rob Gray is a good friend and a repeat guest on TSP and the man behind all the awesome coins at TSPCopper.com. He is also the director of “The American Open Currency Exchange” and as such has been summoned by Congressman Ron Paul of Texas to testify in front of congress about “competing currencies” tomorrow. Yep on Aug 2nd I get a real gift, well at least as long as the hearing doesn’t get moved or canceled.
You can get the full details here at the AOCS Site.
Last night before Rob’s prepared remarks were made public I had the absolute privilege to read a copy of them. The full testimony is already now part of Congressional Record and you can read the full text at the link above, yet I beamed with pride last night when I read one line. The line was,
“No fair challenge can be made between honest men and thieves. Let me be clear that when I say thieves: I refer to the current private central bank and the men in government who allow it to exist.”
Some of you recently have heard me refer to many members of our government as traitors and thieves. It now appears that I will get the extreme pleasure of listening to a man I admire and a good friend tell the Congress directly that they are indeed thieves. What a birthday present.
While Rob’s remarks will be aired on CSPAN I figure his testimony is likely to get zero main stream media play. 20 years ago it would have simply been buried, but today we have YouTube and social media. I think it will be one of the great moments in our modern revolution, the revolution based on doing what makes sense for us and turning away from the great lie of dichotomy. I hope you join me in watching this happen and in sharing it with others.
In any event I would just like to say how proud I am to call Rob Gray a friend. He is a true patriot and I am encouraged to live at a time when men such as him are willing to stand tall, take action and speak the truth even in a den of vipers and thieves. Best of luck to you my friend, thank you for showing honor and integrity at a time when we so desperately need it. And thank you for one hell of a birthday present.
