Another Day in the USA

Sovereignty: America’s Final Solution to Tyranny
was like every other day in the United States during the last few
decades. Washington taxed more private wealth to generate government
revenue. Congress added more national debt to future generations
so they could pay benefits and buy votes today. The Federal Reserve
created more fiat paper money out of nothing to cover the difference
between government revenue and expenses.
Mob Still Votes
democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent
of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine."
~ Thomas Jefferson
we took our 14-year-old daughter and a friend to the Coastal Georgia
Fair in Savannah. It was a small fair with the usual tasty but deadly
food and all the rides you wanted for a set price. The girls had
fun and I had plenty of time to stand around and watch the crowd
to protect my girls from all the thugs and hoodlums in the crowd.
hate generalizations but it was apparent that most of the attendees
lived off the government either in terms of outright support or
make-work jobs but for once I was glad there were a lot of law enforcement
officials around. Second, except for the police presence there paid
by tax dollars I doubt few of the people made enough to ever pay
federal income tax and most with children probably received the
annual income tax credit.
it dawned on me that "everyone there had the right to vote
for more benefits and tax receipts from the government". Therefore
it is wishful thinking to believe a mob democracy such as ours can
ever restore the once great American republic of our founding fathers
because a majority of parasites benefit from the productive work
of a minority of Americans.
Bankers Still Rule
"History records that the money changers have used every form
of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain
their control over governments by controlling money and it's issuance."
~ James Madison
is why most governments in Europe and here in America at all levels
appear to working productive citizens as so incompetent. Governments
and politicians are only incompetent if you value your freedom and
want to keep your hard earned wealth. Governments and politicians
do an excellent job for private and central bankers witness the
bank bailout in the US and another banking bailout is happening
right now in the European Union.
work well for the very wealthy out to scam and accumulate more wealth
and power for themselves and use power of the state to do this.
It also is a friend of the 50% plus of Americans who pay no income
tax and who exist and live off our productive labor.
you are super rich or part of the rapidly growing American under
class, most politicians and government entities are your enemy.
The federal government is under the direct control of Wall Street
and a few other wealthy elites. Although they provide enough bread
and circuses to guarantee a voting majority from those who only
subsist off the government, few have the incentive or opportunity
to be more than a voting mob ruled by the wealthy and monetary elites.
Austrian economists, libertarians and Tea Party supporters on the
right are just as correct as the Occupy Wall Street crowd on the
left. The government does not work for the people any longer and
both political parties are equally corrupt and controlled by special
interests. Public outrage is exploding while the Democrats, Soros
and ACORN on the left attempt to use the anger through the OWS to
rally voter support for Obama and the Democrats. This is an identical
covert mission to the earlier GOP establishment takeover and marginalization
of the Tea Party activists.
Sheep Still Sleep, Trust & Obey
society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves." ~ Bertrand de Jouvenel
I walked down the beach to "mourn" at the 150-year anniversary
of the 1861 American invasion and military occupation of Port Royal
on Hilton Head Island, SC. At the time this was the largest amphibious
assault ever attempted by the American military but they so out
numbered and out gunned the Confederates that the issue was never
flags of the victors and defeated Confederates were all flying in
the wind, the cannons blasted and troops of Confederates and Yankee
invaders marched around showing us how Washington invaded sovereign
nation states without a declaration of war 150 years ago.
hundreds in attendance stood and (except one person that I know
of) pledged their allegiance to the flag and conquering empire.
Freedom, God and military defense were mentioned a lot and I support
all three but I saw little evidence today that the views of our
founding fathers or my Confederate forefathers were much in evidence.
bravery of both sides was appropriately celebrated but I wondered
why there was no mention of what really happened back in 1861. Citizens
of the southern states were willing to democratically vote for secession
and then fight and die against a military invasion and fight for
the original republic against a wealthy banking and manufacturing
elite that took over our nation.
the election of Lincoln and following the defeat of the Confederacy
in 1865 these interests with the political power of the southern
states destroyed and under military occupation laid the foundations
for both the creation of the Federal Reserve and federal income
tax, thus changing America forever for the worse.
Tea Party Americans on the right, libertarians, constitutionalists
and even some Occupy Wall Street people on the left all understand
something is seriously wrong with our nation. But I see little sign
of any leadership or a movement other than Ron Paul willing to pledge
everything to stand up against Washington today.
day there will be a new day in the USA. But for now the mob continues
to vote, the bankers still rule and the sheep remain docile and
asleep but for how long? It is time to wake up America!
