See Ron Paul and Help End the Fed's Money Monopoly!

If you live in or near Phoenix, Arizona mark your calendars for March 8 (next Wednesday), because you will have three opportunities to hear Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul talk about the subject that inspired him to get involved in public life: monetary policy.

Dr. Paul is traveling to Phoenix to rally support for HB 2014. This legislation defines gold, silver, and other precious metals as legal tender and exempts transactions in legal tender from the state's capital gains tax.

This bill is a major step towards ending the Fed's monopoly on money.

Here is Dr. Paul's itinerary:

*** Arizona Senate Finance Committee Hearing at 9:00 a.m.

Help Dr. Paul fill the room to push this bill over the top! He'll speak before the committee, and then gather with attendees outside for a few minutes when the hearing is over.


1700 West Washington Street
Phoenix, AZ 85007

*** Rally at the Capitol at 12:00 p.m.

Attendees at this rally will have the opportunity to hear from Dr. Paul, and sign Arizona Campaign for Liberty's petitions supporting HB 2014.

Following the rally, Arizona Campaign for Liberty will hand-deliver the petitions to the Senate Rules Committee - the next committee to hear the bill before it reaches the Senate floor.

Dr. Paul is not a stranger to the issue of exempting precious metals from taxes. A provision of his Free Competition in Currency Act would have expedited gold and silver coins from taxes.

Dr. Paul explained the important of this in his official statement introducing the bill:

The final step to ensuring competing currencies is to eliminate 
capital gains and sales taxes on gold and silver coins. Under current 
federal law, coins are considered collectibles, and are liable for 
capital gains taxes. Short-term capital gains rates are at income tax 
levels, up to 35 percent, while long-term capital gains taxes are 
assessed at the collectibles rate of 28 percent. Furthermore, these 
taxes actually tax monetary debasement. As the dollar weakens, the 
nominal dollar value of gold increases. The purchasing power of gold 
may remain relatively constant, but as the nominal dollar value 
increases, the federal government considers this an increase in wealth, 
and taxes accordingly. Thus, the more the dollar is debased, the more 
capital gains taxes must be paid on holdings of gold and other precious 
  Just as pernicious are the sales and use taxes which are assessed on 
gold and silver at the state level in many states. Imagine having to 
pay sales tax at the bank every time you change a $10 bill for a roll 
of quarters to do laundry. Inflation is a pernicious tax on the value 
of money, but even the official numbers, which are massaged downwards, 
are only on the order of 4 percent per year. Sales taxes in many states 
can take away 8 percent or more on every single transaction in which 
consumers wish to convert their Federal Reserve Notes into gold or
