How Americans could crash the system

Imagine what would happen if everyone did one or some of the following, all at once:

1) Turned off the TV, cancelled cable, cancelled subscriptions to all lying media
2) Cancelled Facebook, stopped giving it all away to gov't surveillance
3) Pulled their children out of public school
4) Didn't show up for their bureacratic jobs
5) Stopped buying Chinese goods
6) Stopped buying GMO food, as far as possible
7) Cancelled health insurance, if possible, and got off drugs, if possible, to starve Big Pharma
8) Stopped worshipping the military
9) Decided to never enrich the bankers by getting a mortgage
10) Cut back on expenses to whittle down the state tax revenue...
11) Decided to never show up for a sham election with electronic voting machines again

Any other ideas for peaceful revolution? How else could we legally outwit the powers that be?

easy, so do it!

"2. Cancel accounts and change to local credit union."

Credit unions are outside the federal reserve regulatory system. And they answer to their local account holders.

These are good, too

Tryin to bump this one. Good ideas, Sir. Keep 'em comin.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Do it real quick:

If masses of people agreed on a particular week to close out all bank accounts that would do it. You could live without a checking or savings, etc. for one week, right? Could THEY?

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." (Dr. Seuss)

Good idea

Even though, if you have a lot of money in your bank account, that's really hard to do.

I've done all but two of those things

I just now opened a FaceBook account because I want to sell my thinly veiled novel about how I "woke up". I want people NOT into Ron Paul to read it.
I know. I know. I know. FaceBook for me is a business thing...not a personal open diary. But I have to say being on the Internet and having a cell phone is almost just as bad at this point.

I agree with Fishy BUY SILVER. That should be on the list too.


money that gets value from the free market and not any government decree (or fiat).

No, I'm not talking about gold, although that would work.

I mean something easier to use and which can't be confiscated: Bitcoin

Oh I thought you were talking about POT.

seriously. I didn't get it at first.

“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.”
― Ron Paul

We're feeling pretty smug

My husband is stuck in his "bureaucratic job" and has to buy health insurance, but he gets the cheapest one. Other than that, we have completed the check list.

May I suggest - "buy silver" belongs on that list.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Hope it can kick this cold. Thanks!

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

Put your money in credit unions instead -

if you must do "banking". Should be up high on the list - please add it. Great post, pseudonym!!!

I can't add it

until I understand it. Can you give me a brief summary or good link, please?

Here's an article which explains it briefly:


P.S. On Zerohedge.com - which is amazing.


I love my Credit Union. I switched a couple of years ago from Citizen's Bank (subsidiary of RBS). I couldn't believe it. Its much, much better.

12) Voted for Ron Paul

Everyone had that opportunity but they couldn't even accomplish that. So, the first step is to de-brainwash, which is the greatest challenge of them all.

Edit: i didn't consider the "crash" parameter, but point is the same.

Vote fraud

I believe Ron Paul was openly, blatantly defrauded in this last election.

I think it was both.

Anyone who witnessed the local/state/national conventions would agree that RP was a victim of fraud. At the same time, sadly you don't have to go far to find many "conservative voters" who didn't even know him much less vote for him, compliments of our Israeli media.

right. When you think about


When you think about it, if it were vote frraud this would be a GOOD thing. Or at least a way better situation than the reality.

Easier than that...

All we all have to do is stop paying the banks and taxes.

Done and done.

EDIT: Didn't really notice the "legal" parameter before I posted. Sorry.

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.

"Legal parameter"

I piss on that legal parameter with my Oath! No offense to the DP.

I think your idea would work if a majority of the people agreed.

About Facebook...

Cancelling your registrations won't be enough. You'll have to call their headquarters then pay them around 60 dollars or so to completely wipe our the information in your profile. If you just deactivate your account , then log in five years later, your information will be right where it left off.

A friend of mine ex was having problems with a hacker on her account and that's what they had to do to wipe out all the info.

I tried to cancel FB after

I tried to cancel FB after they jumped in bed with Goldman Sachs for their IPO. I wiped all of my personal info (so I thought) but they saved it and reactivated my account after I inadvertently clicked on a FB link.

I still have cable, but only because it comes bundled with my internet. Also have a land line for that reason (though I don't have a phone).

EDIT: As others have said, opt out of the dollar if possible. Except for paying aforementioned cable/internet bill, I have.

End the FED (competitively: as in anything but using the one legal fraud money)
End the IRS (learn how not to pay the extortion fee, there are many examples already shown by many people including people reporting on this forum)
Bring the Troops Home (not to enforce debt payments made by the criminals at The FED and the IRS or whatever false front they hid behind after those false fronts no longer work so well for them)
