After the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street movements stormed American politics in 2009 and 2011 with their cries against big government and economic inequality respectively, a new — and better-targeted — grassroots revolution has been born.
On the heels of former libertarian-leaning Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul’s “End the Fed” gospel, and what many see as the Obama administration’s political overreach of The Federal Reserve and its chairman Ben Bernanke (who, in the hopes of helping a still dismal economy, just enacted another round of quantitative easing or QE3), the “End the Fed (ETF)” movement has officially debuted, promising to be a game changer in Election 2012 and beyond.
And just as Obamacare triggered the Tea Party, and the failure of the U.S. government to bring accountability to a financial sector largely perceived as having produced the 2007-2008 Great Recession triggered the OWS movement, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) successful blocking of the “Audit the Fed” bill, is what has triggered libertarian-leaning voters across to country to make their voices heard against what they see is the mortgaging of the America’s fiscal future in the name of never-ending public spending.
