FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tampa – “A United States Senator has no greater domestic prerogative than abolishing the Federal Reserve,” said Libertarian Augustus Invictus, Candidate for U.S. Senate.
“The Federal Reserve is an illegal banking cartel that set itself up as a fourth branch of government in the early 20th century. It has subverted our federal legislature and wrecked our national economy.”
Signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson, the 1913 Federal Reserve Act established the Federal Reserve – a central banking system of the United States with the authority to issue reserve notes, or Dollars.
Today, the Federal Reserve is enabling out of control spending by monetizing the debt, said C. Burt Linthicum, Partner-in-Charge of the audit practice for Garcia & Ortiz, a CPA firm in St. Petersburg. When foreign institutions stopped purchasing Treasury bonds, he said the central bank began purchasing the loans themselves. “It is basically conjuring money out of thin air and spending it.” Each time the “not really federal with no reserve” creates money it debases the value, said the former Constitution Party candidate.
“They manipulate the buying power of money that we ‘sheep’ had to actually work for,” he added. “Government in general meddles in my life, but the Federal Reserve is the biggest threat to my life, liberty and property.” The time for deliberate and brutal representation on the senate floor is here, said Linthicum, who served as campaign treasurer for 2014 Libertarian candidate for governor, Adrian Wyllie.
“Invictus is the best we got,” he said. “He has my endorsement.” While it was unfortunate Wyllie resigned as chair of the LP last year in protest over the candidacy of Augustus Invictus, the Tampa native said he is very satisfied with his choice. “Like him or hate him, one cannot deny that Invictus will give them hell.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Mr. Linthicum,” said Invictus. “He having been a senatorial candidate at the State level, Mr. Linthicum’s advice has always carried great weight for me.”
