The Illusion of Freedom

"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater."

-Frank Zappa

Stop investing in big government.

It makes absolutely no sense to complain about big government and then turn around and invest in government bonds. People need to cut off the life support of the beast that is defeating our liberties.
Here is an article promoting government bonds.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/markets/prepare-for-l...
"Buyers of Treasury bonds are usually not the small investor, rather large banks, mutual and pension funds, insurance companies and central banks of other countries. The fact that the most sophisticated investors are buying Treasury bonds reflects the sense of anxiety percolating in the financial markets."
Liberty minded people need to fight back!
If your bank invests in government bonds, withdraw your money, if you have mutual and pension funds invested in government bonds send a letter to management and threaten to cash out unless they dump government bonds, the same goes for insurance companies and others. It is difficult to prevent central banks of other countries from investing in U.S. government bonds, but i am sure a movement could be started to convince citizens of other countries to do so. I certainly don't want our central bank investing in other countries currencies. Bring down this giant by starving it.
