America is going to need to be like Iceland

and start sending its corrupt bankers and politicians to jail.

I def think things started going awry in 1913, but I bet you haven't heard of the the "Forgotten Depression of 1920" http://mises.org/daily/3788 The year America did things right and the depression only lasted a short time. Read this, incidentally Warren Harding was President then too.

While Emotion Slept.

While emotion slept America went away. That deep, true, and sacred part of American life that we used to dream of, went away. Before 1957 or after 1954, who knows? When Barbara Lewis sang Hello Stranger, we had it then. Us, as Americans, we had our soul then.


That was before they came for us. With their mind control television and soul communication deprivation, they separated and divided us by race, creed, and color. It was not by chance but, by design. Then, since we could no longer lead our masses from amongst ourselves (think, assassination) we became led, en masse, by those who would usurp free power. In the name of good righteousness we were led forth. In the name of good Americans we moved ahead. In the name of America we were duped!
The curtain is open briefly now for us to see beyond the “created” history we have been force fed. You are looking through the window right now at this very moment, at this very second, as you read my words. Do you realize it? Do you “see”? Do you agree that we have not always been right to “trust” those in power and we must now use this, perhaps our one final opportunity that we have, to correct that mistake? We cannot make the same mistake twice. Some of us have made this mistake three, four, five, or even the six times. This is the definition of insanity. Why do you go blindly into the night accepting the status quo? You are at a crossroads, what choice will you make now?
Will you support the greatest and ONLY true Statesman of our generation, Dr. Ron Paul? Will you rally with your fellow Americans for the cause of Liberty?
What can we, individually, do? We join together, en masse, for the right cause. We can do that right now with this internet window open. Only if the curtain to our net window closes and we lose our communication with one another would it mean the end...mean, The End.
Where is the emotion of Barbara Lewis today? Hello Stranger…shoo bop shoo bop my baby, ooohhhh…It seems like a mighty long time.
We are no longer six degrees of separation away from one another. We are an infinite number of degrees away from one another so much to the point that we not only do not know one another but, what’s worse, we no longer, as Americans, trust one another and we must, for God’s sake, get back the trust. Why don’t I trust you? Is it because you are a child molester? Is it because you raise your children in a religious “compound” with old ways? Maybe it is because you have child pornography on your computer? Well, these are the things I hear about you. I have heard this about you. I have read that about you. I have also seen this about you. How do you dispute that? So, I don’t know or trust you. I trust the media. I know ho-ho the media. Oh yes, I do. And I trust them! Isn’t that pathetic? Will I leave the image race long enough to trust and help my brother along? Or, will I move myself and my lot along, quite nicely, thank you very much for asking, and I did it all on my own, by the way. That is the question. What will you do? I don’t preach socialism, I praise Americanism. We have been divided as Americans and we must come back together.
Hello Stranger. Break free. Get off the tube. Get into emotion. First, find the emotion within yourself and then, within your family. Seek to include your friends and maybe people you don’t even know. Utopia, it won’t be. That is a given that we’ll all need to work on every day but wouldn’t that be so much nicer than the now? We must make the journey back to where we left our emotion. We need to go back and pick that up, every one of us.
Have we become so “programmed” that we cannot see the truth and the way back to our own autonomy, emotion included at no extra cost? The answer is yes. The answer is a staggering yes, we have been so programmed. So, the question now becomes: When will you break free? More serious and pointed questions will follow and must certainly be addressed but before they can be answered the first question must be satisfied…When will you break free? We tell ourselves this is folly that we are “too programmed” and we say we are going to end this right now, once and for all, this simple “programming” but, it isn’t that easy, is it? You did understand that it would be hard, didn’t you, to break free from everything in your life that you’ve been taught to rely upon? You’ve relied upon the tube, the news, the sport’s teams, the politicians, the telling us of what we should be, the telling us of what we needed to have to survive in this brave new moon walking world. Has this benefited you? Has it? What does the “program” in your head say? Does it say 1 million dead men, women, and children in Iraq and Afghanistan? Does it say 10 trillion dollar a year deficit? Does the “program” in you say more government and less freedom? The “program” inside of you does not say these things but yet, these things are true. What will you do to the program in your head?
Come and knock on our door, three’s company, too. You didn’t even see it coming, did you? No worries. You’re still here, kid. You’re still with us and you are still alive. You made it through, thus far. Now, we are at a critical point in history. Make no mistake, we are in historic times. History will mark and record this time as one of great humility and change or one of mass violence, shame, and death or, both. History has already been marked. How has that part of it, already marked, sit with you?
If you have read thus far into this piece you are seeking an answer to that truth which is already inside you. You know that acting now is what you must do to move even more forward, ever vigilant, in the surreptitious responsibility of being American.
Emotion means you care. It means you cry, you smile, you laugh, and you hurt. It means you are human. We are no longer feeling, compassionate human beings. We are callous space gatherers and shallow substance gatherers (just as Henry Kissinger describes us, right?). But we are en masse. En masse, say it again, en masse. Now mean it when you say it, en masse! You are all, en masse. Break free. Get your emotion back and care. The lesser of two evils is no longer a choice we will accept. We have a few ideas ourselves about ourselves, you know? We’d like to express them. We don’t like our current elected leaders. Nobody likes our leaders. Nobody likes our National policies. They represent murder and world domination. Does this actually represent us? Acting “en masse” as before, cannot change this. Only you and I and all of us can change this. Collectively, as individuals, we can change the now.
What can you do? Considering the fact that you do not have control over your country anymore it can be very difficult to do anything at all without an opportunity. Look beyond the paper curtain that has been placed before us. It is held delicately in the arms of a whimsical clown teetering on a high wire over the lion’s cage. You can tear it down with a single act of truth. Believe the truth. Do not believe the lie. The paper curtain is not your friend. Keep the curtain open. Look through the window of the internet and rally other Americans with you to stop the lies. This is our moment in time, truly, our last opportunity. Never let the internet die or you will die!
DO SOMETHING to bring about a better representation of your autonomy and your beliefs to the world. We are not so different.
Hello stranger…

Restore America's soul Now!

Mussolini quote on target

"Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." - Benito Mussolini.

I'll add this quote:

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." - John Adams

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

Financial prospective

When a nation does not create its own sovereign curency, but borrows it from a private individule (under the hiddent ownership and control of a corporation) at a compounding rate.

The nation does not exist only the individual that creates the money.

If I create your money, I will use debt and claims of debt to make you all into debt slaves through tax collections.

Ill identify the decent from tax collections and place them into corporate slave prisons.

Remember I dont need money as I create it, and I already own everything all be it hidden under layers of corporations.

So I dont need your money thats not the purpose of tax collections.

libido dominandi They lust to dominate.

Digitized at no cost created out of thin air unaccountable to the borrower national governments. Loaned at a compounding intrest rate. Fictious compounding National debts used to justify increasingly immoral tax collections. Folks this is a parasite to humanity and as with parasites they kill their hosts unless iradicated.

Enlightened disengagement will be out weapon of choice in a leaderless revolution. Soon a critical mass of humanity will reject this monitary system then the rest of humanity will follow.


libido dominandi

They lust to dominate.


We went into debt to finance the Revolutionary War.

Through that debt the creditors controlled the federal government.

Two central banks later and Andrew Jackson finally killed that Monster Bank and paid off the National Debt for the first and only time in US history.

But it didn't last long, and by 1861 Lincoln imposed high Tariffs on southern products to pay for the debts the North recklessly acquired building public works projects that did not produce enough revenues to pay for themselves. (Modern day equivalent is Solyndra)

When the South refused and seceded, Lincoln sent the troops in to loot and pillage.

The War against Southern Independence was another federal failure and the Panic of 1871 found us bankrupt and dependent on our creditors yet again.

And again in 1892, 1907, 1937, 1957, 1971, 2001, 2008. To be continued?

Free includes debt-free!

from a religious historical perspective--

it went wrong when Cain slew Abel.


For gain.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

The story seems more about

The story seems more about spiritual envy to me than material gain.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Even before that

It went wrong when Adam and Eve disobeyed God and brought sin into the world.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

They ate the fruit and became like gods judging good and evil

As warned, this was deadly.

Cain judged himself good and Abel evil, and took action to kill the one his mind had made evil. Cain choose poorly.

Free includes debt-free!


I thought I might get some comments as to how far back, it started going wrong.

The article was intended for ordinary Republican, Independent and Democrat voters.

The only thing missing in order to complete the transformation is control of the internet and Ron Paul activists.
They are trying to work on that.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Try 1787

They were supposed to only revise the Articles of Confederation.


YES so true

The Constitution for the United States of America became the Constitution of the United States never adopting the real constitution and abrogating the Articles of Confederation and creating a United States and a permanent government from the land known as the Northwest Territory under the temporary government district the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 where the House of representatives is introduced and the new age of majority is introduced as eighteen years of age from the 21 years of age of majority under common law under the Articles of Confederation.

Folks there are still 2 separate UNIONS here in America. One under the Articles of Confederation and one under the Constitution of the United States which is territory owned by and under the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States of America.

"We the People" don't know who they are and that is where America went wrong.

BTW there is no common law

recognized in any state constitution (written statute law) anymore it is acknowledged but not supported or recognized by any court or constitution.

Completely untrue - multiple times.

This isn't true on so many levels..

First, common law is always recognized on legal principle because it came before the charters were made.

Also, most of our principles of rights used in courts are from common law. That is the main reason it is propagandized against, because the princples behind your rights are there. They are CONSTANTLY used and useable.

Third, common law was made explitely part of the law in virtually every state by reception acts.

And suits at common law are recognized in the United States' Constitution. And the 9th Amendment is explicitly clear because many of those rights are defined in common law.

"A reception statute is a statutory law adopted as a former British colony becomes independent, by which the new nation adopts (i.e. receives) pre-independence English law, to the extent not explicitly rejected by the legislative body or constitution of the new nation. Reception statutes generally consider the English common law dating prior to independence, and the precedents originating from it, as the default law, because of the importance of using an extensive and predictable body of law to govern the conduct of citizens and businesses in a new state. All U.S. states, except Louisiana, have either implemented reception statutes or adopted the common law by judicial opinion."

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

1913 is where

Thanks, Federal Reserve and income tax!
Then got markedly worse in 1971.

We went from..

a nation of people concerned about how our personal actions affect others (virtues, manners and morals) to a nation of people who put their own pleasure first, others be damned...
