Thomas Jefferson - THE MAKING OF AMERICA, p. 395

"...And to preserve their independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are*, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four**,, and give the earnings of fifteen of these*** , to the government for their debts and daily expenses; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes; have not time to think, no means of calling the mis-managers to account; but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow sufferers..."

 * - You see right there that Thomas Jefferson knew why this was bad. It was ALREADY HAPPENING! IN ENGLAND!

** - 16 out of 24 hours is 2/3 of the day. (That's a double shift for all you Davis/Baconers out there.)

*** - that works out to 94% of your money you would earn each day to be paid to the government.

In the USA we are already taxed over 94% when you add all the taxes we pay that's a list to big to list from income taxes to the fees we pay each and every time we buy or sale there's a tax. Our homes our land even our grave plot is taxed. Even after. Death our family's have got to pay taxes from the money they are left. America it in the hole debt because the history of the words of Jefferson have not been taught in our schools or colleges. There are two powers in the land good and evil and America is falling because of evil men and women with hate toward Good. The good people of the world have sat by and let evil run rampant. We are where we are because We have done nothing to defend Good. But if you have read the back of the book you will know Good wins out in the end. And that's the good side of the tree.

It's a rare family now, that doesn't have husband and wife both working. ( Your 16 hours). Many with additional jobs or enterprises. Inflation of money and government keep us wage slaves. As long as we have a Demockery it can not change, for over 50 percent of the people are recipients of government largess or wages. 

I'm Robert,
I think what is really rare in America to day is a family of two willing to work and those that do are worked till they give up. When a government sets up a education system that teaches that Socialism is a good way of life without giving the truth as to what there free education gets them in a system working for a government that's controlled by government along with the pay scale. What good is a education if you can't use it for the betterment of your self gain. Socialist control gives the people what they want to give to live and that's at a very low scale. Cuba is a socialist controlled government and the average income is $4.00 a week. Is that what the education system is telling the students, No, not by far. Are they told if there Sick they might or might not get medical help based on your sickness or age. Our government here already has a system set up to only spend so much on government vehicles. They set a figure when that vehicle is new, when the that figure is reached its removed from its inventory even if it's only needs is windshield wipers. It's placed on what's called a dead line and sold to the highest bidder and in most cases that's far under the real value of its worth. Government set limits on all costs why not, We the People are paying for there waste. When people work for things it just seems there is a pride on how they care for it. Our government here in America knows how to care for people just look at the American Indians, there given a home a vehicle and a income. If they set back and do nothing that's about all they will ever have. By the way there homes and type of vehicles are the same. That's because the government buys for them the lowest cost materials. Socialism is really No kind of life. Most turn out to be alcoholics or drug users. There not given pride because everything is handed to them, and thats what our government has been doing through a well fair state. Control the people by controlling there income, food, and other needs. Control, Control, Control!!! America is falling into Socialism by the weight of debt it is creating! The end time plan is from the evil side of the tree. My we all pray that God don't give up on his people like they have given up on Him.

Americans are in debt because they refuse to understand  our monetary system works. They are afraid to understand how our monetary system works. We are in debt because all of what we use for our medium of exchange is created as interest-bearing loans to us. If we do not borrow from the banking system there is no medium of exchange ( money). There is only one radio program in United States that discusses those facts and the consequences of having a debt based monetary system.  There are no papers that addresses the fact that all our money is created as interest-bearing debt. There are no TV programs that address the fact that all money is created as interest-bearing debt.

The only radio program that addresses the fact that all money is created as interest-bearing debt and the consequences thereof is the blog talk Wealth Money Radio Show.  the only Internet site that I know of that addresses our debt money system is wealthmoney.org .

I know of no organization, group, paper, Internet or otherwise that encourages its followers to go to those places and learn about devastating destructive consequences of having a debt money system.

You mean except us of course, right Byron?

I would be interested in doing a video.  when and how?

I sent you a private message with a link to his email Byron. Check your inbox. Click on Burkeley's name and let him know.

I tried that nothing happened

The Law - Frederic Bastiat

This defines the problem. Still applies today. Very short read...

What is liberty?

   Actually, what is the political struggle that we are  witnessing? It is the instinctive struggle of all people toward liberty. And what is this liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster and shakes the world?

Is it not the union the coming together of all liberties -- liberty of conscience, of education, of association, of the press, of travel, of labor, of trade?  

t  Isn't  liberty the freedom of every person to make full use of his faculties, so long as he does not harm other persons while doing so?

Isn't liberty the destruction of all despotism -- including, , legal despotism?    Finally, isn't liberty the restricting of the law only to its rational ability for organizing the rights of the individual to lawful self- defense; of punishing injustice

What is Liberty when its definition  has become synonymous with  the peoples needs to enact it?  Mort! you say my words are sometimes out of the boundaries I say your Mind needs to leave the confines of its boundaries then we can form our defense.

No Q, I don't believe that is exactly what I said.

I believe I said you're a little nuts. Either way, you're right. We better come together on the same page before it's too late.

I understand  that all men are called at birth to live  which to me says that all men are called to be men. and in its broadest definition is it not a call to need the sun of freedom for doesn't man live in the world of light then sleeps at night?  Our world has changed so drastically that night has be come our day  as lliberty  has lost its meaning and our only freedom is whether to watch TV  and our choice of speaking out and chancing a rebuke or waiting in the shadows and waiting for a ghost to call.
