Libertarians rally to 'End the Fed'

Posted By on Wed, Nov 21, 2012 at 8:44 AM

Looking for excitement Saturday, apart from battling crazed mobs for cut-rate flat-screen TVs?

Libertarians and others will rally and march Saturday in Little Rock in support of shutting down the Federal Reserve, establishing an alternate Arkansas currency and other stuff. Participants include Adam Kokesh of Washington (and, in the small world department, son of a college classmate of my wife) who has a three-hour daily podcast on "sticking it to the man." Fun starts at 11:30 a.m. at the Riverfront Amphitheater.

Details follow:

NEWS RELEASE
