Do you believe in Santa Claus? How about the easter bunny? The tooth fairy?

 

Of course not. You learned a long time ago that fairy tales are for children. Why then would you even consider for a moment the idea that something created by banks would be something for the benefit of anyone other than the very, very rich people that own them?

Every pusher working the streets knows that in order to sell drugs, all he has to do is give some away, get people hooked, and then clean up.

 

The cigarette companies know this, too. Make cigarettes look cool to kids, get them hooked on nicotine, and you've got them for life.

So the banks know something as well. Get people hooked on the low cost of money, and soon you get to take everything they own.

 

That may sound ridiculous, but that is exactly what is happening.

 

The American middle class is nothing but a massive collection of junkies strung out on the low cost of money.

For years of spiraling real estate values we've been using our homes like ATM machines. Better cars, nicer clothes, fabulous vacations. Why it certainly looks like the American middle class still believes in fairy tales, doesn't it? Even as the people we elect to govern us export the business and industries that sustain us, we continue to believe in the rigged two party political system that has turned us all into modern paupers.

 

Think I'm kidding?
