Nation wide "Audit the Fed" protests took place all across the country on Sunday November 22, 2009 planned in 38 major cities. A group of roughly 10 protesters gathered at 1550 W. 47th Ave. In Phoenix Arizona at the unmarked facility operated by the Federal Reserve. Members of a local meetup group known as Freedom's Phoenix, a Libertarian political action group founded by Ron Paul supporter Ernest Hancock waived signs of accusation at the Federal Reserves main intersection.
As several members conveyed their conspiratorial ideals to Examiner.com they waved signs ranging from "We know the truth" to the most prevalent "End the Fed" and "Ron Paul Revolution" and received honks from motorists heading East and West bound on McDowell Dr. In the early part of the 9 o'clock hour.
Conspiracy theories have long been prevalent in American history and especially so in U.S. Politics. Growing trends in groups such as Freedom's Phoenix and similar Ron Paul Libertarian supporters have become more and more vocal since the inception of the banking bailouts, (said by the administration to have been a necessary action in order to prevent an economic meltdown and divert another great depression) blaming the institution of the Federal Reserve for intentionally causing the market to fail, in an effort to fund it's revival. Freedom's Phoenix member Sharlene Holt told Examiner.com that "this is a common practice by the New World Order, and has been done continually since the signing of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 under then President Woodrow Wilson including the first great depression. Another member asked "Have you seen the Matrix movies? That's essentially what's happening to our country."
Freedom's Phoenix members and supporters sight proof through such conspiracy theory styled movies as "The Obama Deception" and a new film the group plans to hold a Dec. 3 screening for called "For Liberty". It documents the 2007-2008 Republican campaign of Libertarian leader Rep. Ron Paul o Texas and the ensuing debates leading up to the GOP nomination to run for President.
