In the final analysis, there are three reasons why people go to war; self-defense, greed, and religion. Of the three, self-defense is the only morally justified reason for engaging in war because, obviously, if you are defending yourself against a foreign aggressor you did not start the hostilities and are only fighting to save yourself and your fellow citizens from the wrongful actions of an attacking nation. War truly is a curse upon mankind not only because innocent people are killed, but also because of the senseless destruction and the needless squandering of natural resources which inevitably occurs. In today's world this last consequence is especially poignant because population levels have put a strain on our natural resources and environment. Clearly, any nation which wages war out of greed or religion is a pox on mankind and its leaders are war criminals who should be treated accordingly.
The United States of America was the greatest nation in all of history and the reasons for this are no accident. We were a nation conceived in liberty and born of revolution in keeping with the governing principles subscribe to by our Founding Fathers. It was adherence to these principles which forged the nation we once had. The past tense is appropriate to describe our situation because the nation we used to have no longer exists. It has gone the way of the dodo bird because not one governing principle subscribed to and considered inviolate by our Founding Fathers is functional or operative. And this conclusion can be reached with conviction and absolute certainty. We are a nation who has lost its way and the best illustration of this is that we use war as tool of diplomacy and a means to spread a non-existent democracy throughout the world. How has all this come to pass?
The founding fathers feared the uneducated and ignorant masses. Because of this fear they gave us a republic instead of a democracy. In a democracy, the masses rule and mob psychology prevails. In a republic established by a written constitution, the rule of law is paramount and the rights of individuals trump the predilections and wiles of the majority. A republic is the government given to us by the Founders and it is this kind of government which we have lost. And this came to pass because somewhere along the line because our leaders stopped believing we should be governed according to the ideals and principles embodied within our constitution and instead, be governed for their personal benefit while keeping us ignorant of what is really going on. This is where we are today. Our leaders lie to us all the time and no longer fear the uneducated and ignorant masses because they can control and manipulate our perceptions of the world through the media. What our Founding Fathers feared most is now a valued tool used by those who rule us. How has all this come to pass?
Capitalism is the goose that laid the golden egg for Americans. It provided us with a bounty envied by the rest of the world and all of us take great pride in being American primarily because of our economic success. However, while capitalism is an ideal economic system for a nation to have to provide for the distribution of goods and services, it is the worst possible system to have when capitalists control government. The purpose of government is to level the playing field for all concerned. The goal of a capitalist is to seek advantage in the market place. These two goals are at cross purposes to each other and when capitalist get the upper hand over government it becomes corrupt and serves the needs of corporations instead of the needs of society. This is exactly what happened in the United States and this is why everything that could possible go wrong with America has come to pass. Our government is now so corrupt that we are no longer citizens but instead, subjects where we have no rights and corporate interests rule the day. How did all of this come to pass?
In 1913, while no one was paying attention, Congress created the Federal Reserve System and gave it the responsibility of printing money and regulating our economy. At first glance, this sounds well and good, but nothing could be further from the truth because the Federal Reserve System is controlled by the Federal Reserve Bank; a private corporation whose owners and principles are a mystery to us. In other words, by creating the Federal Reserve System, Congress turned over our economic well-being to a group of unknown insiders and because these people were empowered to loan us our own money at interest, they became so rich and powerful that they now dominate and control our government. Therefore, upon passage of the Federal Reserve Act, our republic died and our government became an oligarchy run by behind the scenes power brokers who have the final say in everything. The Republic died, democracy died, freedom died and Americans would never again have a say in how we are governed even though we are still allowed to vote for either one of the two puppets who we wrongfully think of as being our President.
In conclusion, the only solution to our problem is to rid ourselves of the Federal Reserve Bank and this can be accomplished by repealing the Federal Reserve Act. Repealing this despicable and ignoble act is simply a matter of getting enough members of Congress to support this action. However, in consideration of how corrupt and self-serving Congress has become, our present situation is such that it is far easier for an elephant to go through the eye of a needle than it is to get a Congressman to vote for something of which would be so beneficial to us. This is especially true when you consider that such a vote constitutes a vote against the people who rule and control the world.
