Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. 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 the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered...'
This was said over 200 years ago, since then, we've seen this happen more than once, each time our deflation has been "cured" with inflation. The bad news is, the rest of the world has "grown up" and they're no longer happy with the table scraps our government has been throwing them for the last 2 centuries. As we talk of "revolt" here at home to preserve our spoiled rotten way life, the rest of the world is contemplating the ways it would like to kick the shit out of "that freckled faced little rich kid", us. As our economic woes bring us to the streets wrestling for a spread of lard on our rationed bread because the federal reserve has sold our rights to the highest bidder, the majority of us will be whining because we have no internet, cellphones, and the only american idol is that camp shovel you'll be using to dig your next dump hole. DO YOU LOVE THIS COUNTRY? HOW MUCH MORE IRRESPONSIBLE BIG GOVERNMENT ARE YOU WILLING TO PUT UP WITH?
Did you ever think that as our soldiers, yes OUR soldiers, are spread out over the globe, fighting wars for the banks, yes the BANKS, who the f@#k is watching our back door? When the global community flips the bird on the US dollar and calls in the chips, our boys aren't going to have the gas money to get back home. Do you think that the banks will even care?
The time is now to put and end to our deficit based economy, to get the people out of the power seats who, over the last 5 presidencies have been in the drivers seat leading down the road to disaster. The time is now not to accept any "solution" that they try to cram down our throats.
Ponder these words;
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
