A new television ad about the U.S. national debt produced by Citizens Against Government Waste has been deemed "too controversial" by major networks including ABC, A&E and The History Channel and will not be shown on those channels. The commercial is a homage to a 1986 ad that was entitled "The Deficit Trials" that was also banned by the major networks. Apparently telling the truth about the national debt is a little too "hot" for the major networks to handle. But perhaps it is time to tell the American people the truth. In 1986, the U.S. national debt was around 2 trillion dollars.

As it’s already been reported in the news, Goldman Sacks has been caught privately telling their very best clients we may be on the brink of a total worldwide collapse. And now this warning about the Euro Banks brings credence to their warnings.
I've been saying for some time, the Euro would probably collapse first, and then move to the rest of the world very quickly.
For those who think this will be beneficial to our movement think again!
If Ron Paul is not in office before a worldwide collapse comes, he may never get there.
In the first such analysis ever conducted, Swiss economic researchers have conducted a global network analysis of the most powerful transnational corporations (TNCs). Their results have revealed a core of 787 firms with control of 80% of this network, and a “super entity” comprised of 147 corporations that have a controlling interest in 40% of the network’s TNCs.
The sooner we put a president in office that will change all these the better for all of us.

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
