Comment: Or so you thought

(See in situ)

Or so you thought

"Last time I checked, this is not Germany in the 1930s or Italy in the 1920s.

This is the United States of America, for God’s sakes! We are freeborn, natural-right-bearing, good, honest, liberty-loving, flag-waving, gun-toting, property-owning, happiness-pursuing, Americans."

We are born into debt created by and benefited by OTHERS.
We are Government Privilege bearing.
10-20% good, honest, Liberty Loving.
Lots of Flag Wavers, Yes.
Lots of Gun Owning, Yes.
Federal Reserve OWNS almost all Property.
Jefferson's Pursuit of Happiness refers to Adam Smith's definition of Happiness which is Self Interest and Altruism in tandem. We are no longer allowed to pursue our own Happiness, we are forced to be Altruistic to those we have no connection with and our Self Interest is heavily regulated.

In spirit you are mostly correct, but in practice, we are Slaves to the Two Party/Federal Reserve System.
