If the beginning of thought is I am right no matter what, then the methods by which that "truth" is secured are an infinite supply of the lies demanded to maintain that facade.
"Money Printing" (example 1) is a lie. Credit is not.
There were at least two groups in the often repeated LIE called "The Founding Fathers" (example 2) as Revolutionary Forces were credited with the POWER (supplies to run a defensive war) to drive off the Counter Revolutionary Forces.
That power transfer involves POWER transferred from those who have POWER stored (by ill gotten means or by honest productive means) to those who do not have POWER stored by any means.
This, my fellow Americans, is ignored by too many of us.
By what means does a targeted victim gain access to the POWER required to defend against Counter Revolutionary Forces (or mere crime without the badge), if said victim is momentarily without that means to defend themselves?
Get that straight.
2 lies (at least) at play.
1. Bad, bad, bad, printing money is so, so, so bad.
2. The Founding Fathers were all "in it" together in defense of Liberty.
Printing money is not bad, it is called credit, as a person without power is credited with power because the person without power is worthy of credit according to whoever credits the person with credit, and therefore the power is sent to the person with credit according to the person sending the power.
If you do not understand that, then you are duped. Too bad for you.
The example is provided by our own history.
Revolutionary Forces are Credited with the Credit of POWER, in the form of various types of defensive war making supplies, so as to empower the Revolutionary Forces with the POWER to drive off the Counter Revolutionary Forces.
Call that power transfer anything you want, but know how it works, or else remain ignorant.
So now Ron Paul says we are broke.
Is that accurate information worthy of note?
Who is we?
Is it We The People who are broke?
It most certainly is not "We the Criminals who have made our crimes legal for us to do, and our crimes are illegal for anyone else to do, according to us, without question." who are broke.
That would be a lie.
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.
"This power, being at discretion, unconfined, and without any kind of control, must carry every thing before it." George Mason
All "Official Sources" let us know that someone is broke, and by that reasoning, either/or, everyone is broke, or only a select (targeted) number of people are broke.
If the Chinese win World War III because the criminals running our supposed National Government work toward that end, for fun, and profit long enough, which is what is happening, then the Chinese Troops (the new World Reserve Currency Power Aggressive War for Profit Stooges replacing our duped Military Troops) landing all along the North Eastern Coast may represent a new Counter Revolutionary Force Invading what was once (1776 through 1788) a Revolutionary Force here in America.
Who would credit the rest of the Country if the rest of the Country would be inclined to drive off the invaders again?
Are we broke or not?
Is Ron Paul right or wrong?
Consider the possibiity of ignorance - please.
Ignorance is an empty bank of knowledge.
Moving onto point 2.
Communism, so called, is nothing short of abject belief in falsehood owned by the victims of communism, or any other False Front that hides the criminals behind it, without question.
Criminals use any name that works as a power to dissect any defensive power that may work to defend against the criminal power.
Call in communism or "Consolidated government" and the end result is the same thing, the criminals pardon their own crimes, the criminals make it a crime for anyone else to perpetrate their crimes, and the victims provide the means by which the victims suffer, in so many words, repeated often enough, throughout human history.
"Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one: for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT, which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer."
Are we broke?
Will the bad guys (by any false name including "Federalists") try to defeat Revolutionary Forces again?
Ron Paul is wrong?
