"The best way to put more money in people's wallets is to leave it there in the first place." -Edwin Feulner
Wise words indeed, and words that we have not lived by in the United States of America. Instead, we the people that compose the many States of the union, have abdicated our own personal responsibilities of vigilance for liberty and injustice. We allowed laws to be written by those we elected, and they in turn have thinly sliced away at privacy and personal liberties ever since.
There was a nasty trick played upon the citizens of this nation by allowing them to directly elect Congress and a Presidential "ticket" which included of course the Vice President. That way, we could not choose one from different political parties. Back then there were many political parties, and they all offered candidates for office. Same as today but still, with much more liberty than what is possible under the election rules currently.
But that is only a compounding of the "original sin" if you will, and that was the very real and historical conspiracy that became the Federal Reserve System. Finally, America's enemy's had a way to wrest control of the nation while the people would not even be aware of it. And most of Congress and the President may not really know what is the real power behind them. Oh I am sure that Mr. Obama thinks he is the seat of power, but although Congress has abdicated many responsibilities to the Executive and Judicial branches, it is that very act that is unconstitutional in breadth and depth.
The Federal Reserve System must be abolished in order to restore real fiscal responsibility to the government. And with it, its collection agency also must be eliminated, that which we fondly call the Internal Revenue Service. Now isn't that a grand play on words? And it does appear that both the Fed and the IRS are tied to the United States Department of the Treasury, but that is all smoke and mirrors. The Fed is totally independent of the government. There are appointees to the Board, but the President and Congress are told by the Fed what is going to happen, and not the other way around as it should be.
But I am not going to explain that all again here; you can watch The Money Masters or Russo's America: Freedom to Facsism if you need to educate yourself about how fiat money is the root cause of debt in government.
