"Rise
like Lions after slumber; In unvanquishable number; Shake your chains
to earth like dew; Which in sleep had fallen on you; Ye are many;
They are few." ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

The establishment
must do everything it can to suppress unity among the growing herd
of angry citizens. However, victory for the people is within our
grasp. In a dangerous scenario for the establishment, populists
from the left and the right are increasingly finding common ground.
A recent Mother Jones article titled "Tea
Party or Pot Party?
" revealed to progressives that they
can actually agree with Tea Party libertarians on issues such as
legalizing marijuana. With an honest look at each other’s principles
we may find that what unites Populists is far more powerful than
what divides us.

First, we must
be cognizant that the establishment seeks to divide us by using
such vile tactics as labeling progressives as "evil communists"
and the Tea Party libertarians as "racists." Naturally,
old-school civil rights liberals hate racists, and free-market conservative
purists hate communists. Can we not see that the establishment knows
precisely what buttons to push to keep us from uniting? These false
labels are irrelevant in our current struggle with a tyrannical
Corporate State
.

It is clear
that we the people are all suffering in similar ways under the current
system. We grasp for someone to blame for this manufactured suffering,
and the establishment is all too eager to provide a culprit to misdirect
our anger. Progressives have been conditioned to blame big evil
corporations, while conservatives have been conditioned to blame
big evil government. But now, both are finally realizing that corporate
cartels and the government have merged into a most evil monster
that cares not for them, or the health of America for that matter.
Even Michael Moore is waking up to the fact that Obama
is a mere puppet
of the corporate masters.

The people
have been fooled and divided for long enough. Now, we must go beyond
phony labels that the establishment has carefully crafted for us,
and join our fellow populists to unite around our common human principles.

Here are five
co-dependent principles that unite populist progressives and tea
party libertarians:

1. Peace
– Ending Foreign Wars

Peace seems
to be our natural human condition until the corporate controllers
disrupt it for their tactical gain. Wars are sold through division,
driven by military-industrial complex profits and the desire for
power over resources – period. Those are not good enough reasons
to kill, maim, displace and torture millions of human beings. Real
humans, if desperate enough, may kill for resources but are not
inclined to simply kill for power – and will engage in neither
if they are reasonably comfortable. The good news is, the elite
sub-humans who use human pawns for war to increase gluttonous fortunes
will eventually be toppled, because the true natural order of peace
will always ultimately manifest. Acts of war are always immoral
crimes against humanity, as war is hell and we must become the devil
to win.

Libertarians
and progressives have been consistently unified against the immoral,
interventionist wars and the resulting atrocities on liberty. Complacent
progressives must forget about what party is in power and continue
to fight for what is right. It’s not okay to excuse the wars, the
torture, and the illegal wiretapping simply because the current
Democratic president was presented with a Nobel Peace Prize. If
anything, that alone should prove to you the left-right paradigm
is bogus. And if pocketbook conservatives desire authenticity about
reducing spending, then we must start with defense cuts across the
board – including ending the wars. Christian conservatives
and liberal Jews must adopt the peaceful message of their religions,
and realize that the real threat to their freedom and safety is
far more dangerous than the engineered Muslim threat sold to them
by the corrupt establishment. And those who still support military-industrial
complex-owned neocons, God help you.

Common Ground:
As Gandhi said, "There is no path to peace, peace is the path."
Ending the wars is the only moral and pragmatic policy to rescue
our country.

2. Restoring
Economic Justice and Fiscal Sanity

Economic fairness
and fiscal sanity begins and ends with reforming our monetary system.
The primary reason Americans should be angry about their economic
situation is the fact that the Federal Reserve is a privately-owned
entity. It functions outside the jurisdiction of all branches of
elected government and it owns the SEC and Treasury, which gives
this private group immeasurable power to turn us and our government
into debt slaves for their own gain. The fractional reserve system
for money creation inherently causes inflation that will always
require more taxes from the public. In fact, the United States never
had an income tax until the year after the Federal Reserve Act was
passed in 1913. The Fed, who continues to loot America, is also
the engine that drives the ongoing global financial crisis. To reclaim
America it is imperative that the criminal banking cartel be abolished
and sound money must be restored to the people.

We must learn
from Woodrow Wilson who said: "Our great industrial nation
is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately
concentrated. The growth of our nation, therefore, and all of our
activities are in the hands of a few men . . . who necessarily,
by very reason of their limitations, chill and check and destroy
economic freedom."

This topic
is so obviously beyond the false left-right debate that anyone who
opposes it would appear to be a shill for the criminal banking system.
If Tea Party activists wonder who is to blame for their climbing
taxes, they need to point their finger at the monetary system that
encourages big government to keep spending, thus resulting in inflation.
There is already encouraging bipartisan cooperation in regards to
investigating the Fed which has brought great awareness of their
true nature to the public.

Although there
is no proposed legislation to fundamentally change the function
of the Fed, we saw a progressive Alan Grayson (D-Fla) co-sponsor
the "Audit the Fed" bill, drafted by ultra-conservative
Ron Paul (R-TX), with another ultra-progressive Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
introducing the Senate version. Furthermore, it is also encouraging
to see a flurry of candidates from various states and political
philosophies proposing
citizen-owned state banks
as part of the economic solution.
This nonpartisan issue is absolutely vital for all Americans to
support if we hope to be free human beings.

Common Ground:
Thomas Jefferson said: "If the American people ever allow private
banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation,
then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up
around them will deprive the people of all property until their
children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered
. . . I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to
our liberties than standing armies . . . The issuing power should
be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly
belongs." End the private Federal Reserve and establish
sound money for the benefit of all Americans.
