America, we've been lied to. Our freedom was NOT won in 1776.

Johnson Rising! Libertarian Party Candidate Hits 12 Percent in New Fox Poll.

When his name is actually included in the polls, not an after thought and not as "other", he actually does pretty well.

I like Johnson, I think hes a genuinely good hearted person but I'm more of a Ron Paul Libertarian.

That having been said, I'll be supporting Johnson this November.

If for no other reason than as a protest vote.

There are a few states remaining on which he needs ballot access but things are looking good.

I'll be the first to admit that hes kind of quirky but given our other two "options", the choice is clear.

Well I don't see the Union Jack flying over the Whitehouse, so yes we did win our freedom in 1776.

Odd. I was always told Independence Day celebrates our Brexit. Not that it celebrates the end of the pursuit of freedom in general.

Don't disagree with the sentiment though.

Reading my opening post may help to clarify the thread title.

I would almost agree with you in the literal sense but its hard to when the same Bankers that run the UK also established a central bank here in 1913.

So technically, youre correct but we are far from free.

Also did he accept money from people representing certain groups for his candidacy for governor, because if he did he is no better than those he talks about.

It's amazing how some think they can change the government only to find out the cold hard facts once elected.

Actually the central bank in the US received it's charter in 1791 and was modeled after the Bank of England.


The Bank of the United States received its charter in 1791 from the U.S. Congress and was signed by President Washington. The Bank's charter was designed by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, modeling it after the Bank of England, the British central bank.

I cannot support him. He is for open borders. Milton Friedman clearly explained it's a disaster to have open borders in a welfare state. Sorry, can't do it.

I am so torn between trying to keep Hillary out or voting for Johnson.

I have not studied Johnson. If this is true I agree it is a deal breaker.

Do you realize the central banking system created in 1913 was the third iteration?

Where is the Andrew Jackson of our time?

Liked Jackson's stance on the banks, hated him for his policy on my ancestors. Guy was like Hitler.

"We are at the end of a five-thousand-year-plus historical process during which human society grew in scale while it abandoned the early indigenous wisdom councils and communal decision-making," he writes in The Open Source Everything Manifesto. "Power was centralised in the hands of increasingly specialised 'elites' and 'experts' who not only failed to achieve all they promised but used secrecy and the control of information to deceive the public into allowing them to retain power over community resources that they ultimately looted."


The open source revolution is coming and it will conquer the 1% - ex CIA spy

"Sharing, not secrecy, is the means by which we realise such a lofty destiny as well as create infinite wealth. The wealth of networks, the wealth of knowledge, revolutionary wealth - all can create a nonzero win-win Earth that works for one hundred percent of humanity. This is the 'utopia' that Buckminster Fuller foresaw, now within our reach."

The goal, he concludes, is to reject:


"... concentrated illicitly aggregated and largely phantom wealth in favor of community wealth defined by community knowledge, community sharing of information, and community definition of truth derived in transparency and authenticity, the latter being the ultimate arbiter of shared wealth."

Aye. I have to give you that. He was more than harsh on the Native American.

We do need a person with AJ's view on the banking system though... even if I think it is way too late without suffering a huge amount of pain worldwide. Would be totally ironic if the banking system did collapse and the end result is people living like the NA's once did...

July 4, 1776 is the day the colonies formally [I]declared[/I] and announced independence, though probably and more appropriately the intent of self-governance, from the kingdom of Great Britain. It would be a bit longer before the battles would be decided and the bloodshed would end.

From that point forward, independence from all things was and has never been ensured though we gave it a hell of a run for well over 100 years.

Today, this country is almost inextricably intertwined and dependent on others, fighting to justify its existence.

To one end, there is nothing inherently wrong with that. We want and need things others produce as do they need such and similar from us. It's the other end, as in HOW those things have come to be and the methods as to how things continue to change hands where the problems lie.

Anyhow, the balance of things on Earth changed significantly on this day, 240 years ago, and things continued to change afterwards... and not only in this country but in many places around the world.

And we all still can't seem to agree, or at least come to an amicable understanding, on too many things.

From your link:


Yet he remains an outspoken critic of US intelligence practices and what he sees as their integral role in aggravating rather than ameliorating the world's greatest threats and challenges.


That's one of the key issues I have with this government. It's become the world's bully.

I really like what I'm reading about this man. Thanks for posting!!

it all began in 1775, and wasn't really solid until after the war of 1812 ended in 1815

who ever said it was won in 1776 ? anyone ?
