What a mess.........

This man can say more in four minutes than ALL the other 'talking heads' say in forty years. He continues to amaze me.

"I just want to live in a free country" - Dr. Ron Paul

Bump.

Corporate welfare is greater than social welfare? No doubt most of that goes to the buddies of the Fed owners...the Big cartels. They have certainly built a very efficient cash cow for themselves. Little by little, brick by brick.

The question is how can it be brought down? Everyone is so enmeshed in the parasite now and addicted to its largesse. Here in Scotland 90% of the people receive more from the government than they contribute. Therefore to bring the system to an end would mean an immediate reduction in living standards for 90% of the population. In America it sounds like it is 53%. Doesn't seem like it will be a popular movement that will reduce the size of the system.

We all know the problem by now. It's the solution that is eluding everyone in a position to do anything. I suspect that they will just keep fiddling while it all comes down in flames.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

that's the plan by our govts:

that's the plan by our govts: keep the people in need of govt assistance so they feel obligated to reject any decrease in govt spending.

Yes, 10 years is too long...it may be time

We PHYSICALLY Restrain Our Government!

Or else BLESS THEM until they wake up and grow a conscience.

"Bless their hearts"

Recently I learned a phrase said often in the South. "Bless your heart" (or "bless his heart", "bless her heart") -- it means "you're a freaking idiot, if you continue on that path you will likely face destruction, so I am blessing you in the hope that a higher power will help you understand the futility of your actions before they result in your death."

I love that saying. Bless all our hearts.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Isn't that what we were trying to do?

That's why we all backed RON PAUL! You saw how well THAT worked. Don't know what to do at this point.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Will the whole country wake up?

When they finally realized that government causes the mess and not the free market. It's not only that I'm worried that the dependents will want more government but that they put more blame than before on capitalism.

We Must Fiscally Restrain the Govt.

As usual, RP is right. But how do you restrain something that only takes corp. campaign donors and corp. lobbyists seriously? If by some miracle, we were to successfully restrain the govt. fiscally, we'd have to at the same time create a business-friendly environment in America (strike from the law most taxes & regulations) and withdraw from trade treaties like GATT and NAFTA so that manufacturing would come back to America creating jobs that pay a living wage so most welfare dependents wouldn't starve or end up homeless. TPTB have screwed up this country so massively that we'd have to practically demolish govt. completely in order to start over with a workable system and a healthy economy.

Ventura 2016!

"...when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy."  ― Dr. Ron Paul

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_enlistment

There is no duration defined in the Oath

So we sit and watch for 10 YEARS

as TPTB completely suck us dry and then the whole thing collapses? Well, I say FCUK THAT! I don't have 10 years to live like this.

People have 2 choices. STOP funding the criminals NOW, or help to fast forward the collapse by figuring out every way possible to become part of the "dependent" class so that it doesn't take 10 years for them to run out of money.

I do NOT want to sit and watch this bathtub slowly drain until there is nothing left if it's going to take 10 years. That's a lot of years for "we the people" to live in survival mode while the elite keep printing themselves more money for their last big blow out before they jump ship.

I wish we could just shut down the government. Seems there is no other way to stop getting bent over. They clearly have no plans to fix $hit! And even if they did, if fixing $hit is gonna take 10 years...it's foolish to fix it. We need to BREAK the damn thing NOW and build a new system.

We got a get out of this place...if its the last thing we ever do...theres a better life for me and you.

Stop fearing the people who are suppose to be working for US. Lets fire them all. Ignore them. Ignore their rules. STOP FUNDING THEM and STOP FIGHTING for them. FCUK THEM ALL!

You have made a very good point

10 years IS WAY too long to wait. I feel sad for our country and people of this world. We are the biggest group of terrorists there are. We are like the mafia of all terrorists put together. What scares me is what we're up against. It used to be military with guns, now look at what our miltary has. The scales have tipped so much more in their direction. Anyway you are right. Lets tear it down, NOT wait. Most Americans are too ignorant to do this, and thats why I feel we are probably too late. Maybe this is the time frame of when Jesus returns. The entire world cant live in fear and total supression.

Great Straight Talk btw.

I really like that idea!!

I think we should all go apply for as much gov aid as we can get our hands on and use the money to stockpile gold, food, bullets, etc. While expediting the inevitable collapse. I don't have 10 more years to wait either. I want to still be young and healthy when it happens.

Law and liberty cannot rationally become the objects of our love, unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.
