Firstly let me wish all of you a safe and happy Independence day. I hope each of you will remember what we are celebrating today. Take it to heart and treasure it and the documents that came from that precious time in our history. For the nation as constituted to have made it this long is amazing. But don't be looking for another 200 years of it. In my opinion, don't be looking for another decade of it! Why?
Have you noticed in the past decades a reduction in your freedom and in your ability to be independent? If you haven't then you have not been paying attention. How independent are you now? When it takes six months for the average American to generate enough income just to pay their income tax is that freedom? If you own your own home yet fail to pay your property tax the government can take that away from you. Is that freedom? Where did your property rights go? When you said no to government bailing out auto companies, banks, insurance companies, and others did your "representatives" hear you? When your hard earned money is spent on pork projects or sent overseas and you the constituent given no say in it, is that freedom? Are dependent on the government for anything? Social security? Health care? Disaster relief? Don't be.
Has the economy gotten better? No, it can't without job growth. They phony up that unemployment is down and support it with numbers that are false because so many have fallen off the roles and are no longer counted. Job growth is happening in only one sector, government. When everyone works for the government what sort of nation will we have? The very sort we supposedly fought against. Are we an independent nation? No. We are dependent on other nations for resources and goods we no longer produce. That is intentional. All of it is.
Ever read the Communist Manifesto? I highly recommend it. When you do you will see clearly where we have been going and where our own government wants to take us. Not just here either but in other nations as well. Here are just two planks of the ten in Marx's book. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax is one plank. Sound familiar? Free education for all children in public schools. why would that be important? So you can indoctrinate the young minds to the "proper" way of thinking. Another plank is a central bank that makes monetary decisions. Ladies and gentlemen that is called the Federal Reserve Bank. Both the income tax and Fed were created in 1913 and both are illegal as constitutional procedure or quorums were not present.
Why all the spending by government? To destroy the currency and create a pathway to a unified world currency controlled by an even larger bank. Our constitution provides for the coinage of money only by government. When we were taken off the gold standard then inflation could run rampant. When there was no central bank for 100 years from 1813-1913 the total inflation rate for that 100 years was 0.5%. From 1913 to 1981 the inflation rate was 279%!!! Sound like a good idea? That removes your buying power and ability to even make ends meet. Did your wages go up 279%? Of course not. In addition, as the value of the currency drops, even if prices stay the same you are losing ground. It is still inflation. And we haven't even hit the truly bad inflation yet. Remember Weimar Germany? You don't? well of course not since the government does not want you to know any history that hasn't been sanitized or isn't politically correct. Inflation was so bad in the 1920's it took a wheel barrow of money to buy a loaf of bread. Such desperation allowed Hitler to rise to power, and that history is ready to repeat itself.
Here are a few quotes you might like. First let be preface things by saying if someone is a member of the CFR (council on foreign relations), Trilateral Commission, Royal Institute of foreign affairs, the Bilderbergers, or is a Rhodes scholar, then you can bet that equals they are in favor of totalitarian socialism and the removal of sovereign nations. What is the EU? One building block toward a single world government. Why are our borders not secured? Easy, because those in power don't want borders. They are running headlong into a North American Union. It is easier to build regional unions of former nations then integrate them into a single government than to do so with all the separate nations we have now. Conspiracy theory silliness? Sorry, to many dots are connecting now as the arrogant elite in charge get greedy and grab for too much too soon. People are waking up. Here are just a few quotes:
"The standard of living of the average American has to decline..I don't think you can escape that." (Paul volcker, Fed chairman, 1979)
"The power to tax involves the power to destroy" (John Marshall, Supreme Court Justice, 1819)
"By a continuous process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method, they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily: and while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some......The process engages all of the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner that not one man in a million can diagnose." (John Maynard Keynes, economist, 1920)
There are two theories of economy, one is Keynesian, and the other is Austrian. It is clear we have been following Keynes though not the people willingly or knowingly. Keynes was a radical Socialist and one of many who sought destruction of sovereign nations.
All of this may look gloomy and dark on a day we should be celebrating. But what I am trying to do is let you know just how fragile what you are celebrating is and how quickly it can be lost when we the people lose control. Abraham Lincoln once said that the United States could not be overcome from outside but from within. We have allowed this to get away from us. If what the founding fathers created is to endure then it is the people who must make it happen. The constitution is not a limitation on the people but is a limitation on government. Our rights erode with each "crisis" be it economic, environmental, terrorism, crime, etc. and that too is intentional. Have any issues ever been solved? Drugs, crime, poverty, terrorism, health, environment? No, and they won't be either because each provides further means of government imposing additional restrictions on we the people in the name of addressing an issue that never gets solved. Are they really that stupid or incompetent that they can cure nothing? Of course not. They don't want better education, better health care, lower crime, reduced drug use or anything else. Yet many die fighting for the causes.
So what do we do about it? Today look at the flag, read the pledge of allegiance, read the Star Spangled Banner......all four verses!! Think about what has been said here and do some research of your own. Be informed, be educated, and pay attention. This is an election year. One of the most important in many years. It is a year when we can send the message that we the people will not be duped any more. It is not about party as both have been thoroughly corrupted. It is about leadership. It is about the constitution as written. Make the effort to read the Federalist Papers and the writings of the nation's founders. If you want a sovereign nation, governed by the documents that created it then you can help make that happen. Many have fought and died fighting against the very thing we are becoming. But we must be united as people without hyphens. This is a struggle against an arrogant, ruling elite who think they know what is best for you and everyone else. We are so far away from the constitution that you have to use a telescope to see it. We have very little time to change the course of this ship. A brave governor in Arizona is trying to do so in the name of states rights.
One more note. I was in Poland in 1986 when it was still Communist. It was a shocker I have to say, but the people were amazing. Tow things stuck with me about that visit. One was the folks we stayed with taking days away from work to attend us. I asked if they were paid for the time off. They laughed and said, "we're paid whether we work or not, and whether the work we do is good or shoddy". Yet that pay was subsistence. Where was the incentive? Gone. See that happening here? The other event was we were watching the news one night and a friend was translating. It was the usual anti-American rhetoric. I asked the people in the room if they believed it. They laughed and one of them said, "Of course not but it's the only thing on TV! We know it is propaganda". They knew in spite of the oppression and the current state of marshal law. Yet here so many swallow the media garbage fed to them without question. Those from over there are stunned. The Russians are laughing at us and wondering why we are allowing ourselves to go down the very path we decried them for and which broke their nation.
Do not depend on government at any level for anything. When they say they are going to help, know that the only ones they truly want to help are themselves. They write laws and exempt themselves. They divide the people against each other by race, gender, class, region, and other ways. We cannot allow that. We must be united, and we must take independence seriously as individuals and as a nation. Stand up, speak out, vote, and if it becomes necessary, fight for your freedom and the constitution. Right now most who have taken the oath of office are in violation of it. Send a message this year and vote for your independence and that of your nation from the hands of an arrogant ruling elite. God bless you and God bless this nation.
Patriotically yours, Scott
