It's The Money, Stupid!

I love that phrase "re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic".  It accurately portrays the American political process as we have known it.

Conservatives argue about the rights of a fetus and gay marriage, and liberals argue about social programs and health care.  These are all deck chairs, folks.

A long time ago, 1693 to be exact, some really smart and ruthless people figured out that you could take over an entire country without firing a shot.  That was accomplished that year when the Bank of England effectively went into partnership with the government. 

That was accomplished here in the USA in 1913 when the federal reserve act was passed.

For those who do not know, the federal reserve is a cartel of privately owned banks that are in control of EVERYTHING in our country, because they control the issuance of our currency.

In effect, through wars and the social programs needed to deal with the consequences of wars, our government was completely enlaved almost 100 years ago.   How?  Through the debts wars and social programs create.

Of course, if you're going to turn a nation's government into a junkie, it would be a great idea to make sure the junkie can pay his bills.  Enter the progressive income tax, allegedly passed into law in 1916.

In feudal Europe, the serfs who worked the land were "allowed" to keep half of everything they could take from the land.

In modern America, the worker is "allowed" to take home about half of what he makes.  So what's the difference between an American worker and a feudal serf?  Only this. 

The feudal serf knew he was a slave.

The barons and earls of modern times are the corporations and the banks, and they have been in partnership with our government for almost 100 years, and everyone alive today lives under a form of economic slavery because of this.

Everyone here loves our country and wants the best for it, but can we please stop fretting over the positioning of the deck chairs?  We're sinking!

We're moaning about losing progressive candidates and trying to decide which establishment candidate we're going to choose when for the first time in any of our lives we have a candidate who is speaking to the core issue of our economic enslavement; control of our money. 

This is our chance!

There are only a few thousand elites who run this country, and control it's vast wealth, and there are 300 million of us who do not.  They cannot stand against us if we stand together.

So I write today to my fellow Americans, patriots and slaves every one, to unite behind the one guy who has shown the courage to really speak truth to power by advocating the repeal of the federal reserve act, taking control of our currency, and abolishing the IRS.

What good is a deck chair if you don't have freedom?
