A buzz word used by many presidential candidates is "change'.   Indeed, for the past several years, it's a prominent word in all presidential campaigns.   However, just as conspicuous in most of these campaigns is the fact that the candidates do not tell us specifically what changes they are talking about.   Sure, we get generalizations about ending the war and changing the way Washington does business, but the actual changes being promised by both the Republicans and Democrats are a mystery to us.   The problem is that change can be bad or good and without specific information about what changes a candidate is proposing we really have no idea what we are voting for.

President Bush brought about many significant changes to this Nation.   He established that a President may take the Nation to war on a lie and use war as a pretext to take away the rights given to us by God and protected by our Constitution.   President Bush has also established that human beings, especially foreigners, have no inalienable rights and can be tortured when deemed necessary and appropriate by government authorities.   Finally, he has created a mega governmental agency called the Department of Homeland Security that has put new meaning into the phrase Big Brother is watching.   Barak Obama, in his presidential campaign promised to change some of these things.   The problem being he made these promises with fingers crossed behind his back and as his second term of office passes, he has changed nothing promised.

Americans are hungry for change.   We want the jobs and corporations that have fled overseas to come home and rehire those they have fired.   We would like gas to be two dollars a gallon and not have to pay one hundred dollars for a few bags of groceries.   We want the tornados in the mid-West to go away and the glaciers to stop melting and falling into the sea.   We pray that the perpetual wars in the Middle East will end and for our troops to come home.   We want an end to foreign aid, secure borders, a balanced budget, and for America to stop policing the world.   We want our government to stop lying to us and want a President who is accountable for his actions.   Finally, we wish to leave this world a better place for our children as our parents and grandparents have done before us.   In other words, we want is what we had before.   Therefore, Americans do not really want change.   We have had a bellyful of change and what we really want is "reform'.

Reform!   What an easy word to say, but what a difficult thing to bring about.   Politically speaking, reform means going back to where we are supposed to be.   But where is that?   Ask Americans and you get different answers from everyone.   We all know something is very wrong but we are unable to agree on what needs to be done to turn things around despite the fact that the answer to our problems is self-evident.   We need to return to the fundamental constitutional roots that made this Nation what it was for most of the past century.   In other words, we need a constitutional government with all the checks and balances designed to ensure that the wrong changes do not take place and our government behaves the way we want it to.   While this is what Americans should want, we do not have a snowball's chance in hell of ever seeing this happen because this is not what our leaders want.   Our leaders want to be free and for them to be truly free they need to be free of our Constitution and free of accountability to us.   And the two best ways of achieving this freedom is through perpetual war and an economic system that turns us into the down-trodden economic slaves of the Banksters.

American changed in 1913.   This was the year that Congress, wrongfully and in violation of our Constitution, created the Federal Reserve; a private foreign banking cartel given authority to control our money supply and economy.   It should be clear that if a group of people can control our money supply and economy, then they control everything including our government.   There is no equivocation here, either we control our government through our Constitution or they control it through the power of the dollar.   Unfortunately, human nature is such that dollars always trump an oath of office and this being the case, we are left with a government that pays lips service to our Constitution and lies to us about everything.

All of the foregoing being true, the first thing that any president should do upon entering office is work to repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.   Has Barack Obama ever mentioned this kind of "change'?   Other than Ron Paul, has any Republican or Democrat ever mentioned this kind of "change'?     No, of course not!   Because the simple truth of the matter is that almost all Republicans and Democrat leaders and government officials work for them (the Banksters) and not for us.   Can you imagine a high level corporate executive informing his board of directors that they are fired?   Well, this is exactly what is necessary for our President and Congress to do for us to be a free people again.   In order to save and serve us, they must tell the Banksters that they are no longer needed because they were never needed and most telling, because they have acted exclusively for their best interest while intentionally working against ours.

Concurrent with the above actions our government should repeal GATT and get us out of the World Trade Organization (WTO).   When we joined the United Nations, to ensure that this organization would not control the course of this Nation, a Security Council was created where the United States has veto power over any and all actions taken by the UN.   No such veto power exists for actions taken by the WTO.   Instead, we have agreed to make all of our laws, policies, and procedures conform to the decisions of the WTO; without reservation.   In other words, the WTO is a governing body which controls our government.   By quitting the WTO, we will have regained our lost sovereignty and returned to the day when we can trade freely with other nations without a group of foreigners telling us what to do.

The reality this Nation faces today is that we are in a permanent recession called poverty and this is exactly where our government has placed us to the benefit of our New World Order masters.   Americans want this to change and as a result, presidential candidates paint themselves as agents of change while in truth they will change nothing of substance.   On the other hand, to his credit, Barrack Obama has actually changed something.   Instead of having a white oppressor for a President we now have one who is black.
