the Devaluation of the Dollar

...has had a MAJOR effect on all of us. For the 1% ultra-elites, it's had NO effect, not even for the upper 10%, but the middle class and down have felt the devaluation of the dollar.

Granted, we made less money in 1976, but that's the year my son was born, and I can tell you the cost of a loaf of bread was $.35 and the average home in America was $40,000.

That's right. Does that give you a clue how much our Federal Reserve has been printing? The problem with inflation is that our wages have not kept up.

As soon as we get wage increases, then, our taxes go up, and the cost of goods & services go up. The problem with the FEDERAL RESERVE is that they have kept pinching the Middle/Lower Classes to keep us in our proverbial place, if you will.

We can NEVER get ahead, period, end of story, until we put an end to what is going on in Washington D.C. And, the thing that is really, really scary according to Dr. Paul and others, is that the Federal Reserve, along with its partner in crime, the politicians, have printed such a phenomenal amount of money that THEY CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO FATHOM HOW MUCH THEY'VE PRINTED, NOR WHAT THE ULTIMATE EFFECT WILL BE.

We are nearing the end of this gigantic debt bubble. "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride!"
