#1 Stop watching and reading the so called "main stream news and media"

look to REAL stream news and media on the internet and always question the "news" always look for different sources of information on any particular subject important to you. That includes this! Question everything! Also PROTECT the internet at all costs! This is our only forum free from corporate control and filtration! This will take power away from major corporations.

“The advertisement is the most truthful part of a newspaper.”

“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

“Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government.”

“Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”

“I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for it”

“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers”

“Information is the currency of democracy”

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”

#2 Invest in land and REAL estate

Buy only income producing properties with debt if you must. These are REAL assets! Avoid “wall street" invest instead in Main Street This will take power away from the Federal Reserve System and corporations as they are given power by the infusion of capital from the stock market. Invest in your community instead! Avoid all personal debt! This will take power away from corporations and the Federal Reserve

“Never spend your money before you have earned it.”

#3 Get completely off the energy grid

Utilize only solar and wind power and electric vehicles. This is now more economically feasible then ever before Stop supporting foreign countries, greedy oil companies and corrupt politicians! This will take power away from the greedy corporations and corrupt government Politicians.

“Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.”

#4 Grow your own food and or buy food DIRECTLY from farmers not supermarkets. If you don’t have farms nearby support small locally owned family merchants.Food would be more abundant and inexpensive if farmers received more of a profit instead of corporations. Farmers would have more money to produce more crops and buy more land. And would also use less genetically modified organisms and or pesticides for crops... Which means you will have a healthier family. This will take power away from the corporations

“Liberty is to the collective body, what health is to every individual body. Without health no pleasure can be tasted by man; without liberty, no happiness can be enjoyed by society.”

#5 Save gold
"Money" earned as money is debt that is created with debt (look up the fractional reserve system) Gold is an actual finite resource.. it is the best investment as it has grown exponentially in the last 100 years (just look up any chart comparing dollar buying power and gold buying power).The dollar and all other paper currencies are based on debt which is why there is constant inflation... also that is why you see the government, and banking systems scrambling to keep the gears of debt rolling.. For if they stop. So does everything else and the house of cards would fall. Remember the Dollar and most other paper currencies are not based on finite resource such as gold like before it is based on debt and as such the banking systems needs to keep creating debt in order to keep it afloat. The U.S treasury does not issue your money private banks do this just look at your "cash" does it say U.S Treasury note? No it does not .The signing by the U.S Treasury Secretary merely gives the appearance that it is but it is not a U.S treasury note. It is in FACT a FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE...(no more Federal then Federal Express)This will take power away from the Federal reserve banking system

“Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.”

“Money, not morality, is the principle commerce of civilized nations.”

#6 Buy sustainable products that support your community

(For example NOT WAL-MART) avoid all Chinese made products as they are produced in slave like conditions, and do not support your community and economy! This will take power away from the major corporations and foreign countries.

“Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.”

# 7 Start your own business

If you currently work for someone start a business that is similar to the line of work you are currently in part-time. Eventually quit your job\servitude until such a time when you are financially sustainable. If a fraction of the current workforce were to suddenly become employers this would mean serious trouble to corporations as they don't like competition. Competition drives prices lower, increases innovation and quality of products and services(which is bad for major corporations as this equals to less profit) Also less taxes(interest on debt owed by Government) will be paid to the Federal reserve banking system. Remember as a business owner your tax liability is much less then a W-2 employee.. This takes power away from the Federal Reserve and Corporations.

“I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”

“The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it. “

#8 Bank with local credit unions

Credit Unions are owned by the depositors not the Federal Reserve or corporations.. As such they are not as profit driven or corrupt. And are more financially sustainable (ever heard of an adjustable rate mortgage being sold at a Credit union?) Also keep in mind the FDIC is a corporation and as such can go bankrupt like any other company. Also the FDIC says it will pay depositors as soon as possible. They never give a time frame only “as soon as possible" which could mean 50 years, 90 or forever.... the NCAU however is an actual government agency and must pay within 3 days of a credit union failure. This will take some power away from the Federal Reserve banking system.

“I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

#9 Purchase and learn how to shoot a firearm

Depend on yourself and your community in times of crisis not law enforcement, as law enforcement is in place to PRESERVE themselves and the Government FIRST they will not come to your aid in an emergency until it is sadly too late in a major crisis. Our founding fathers made sure that we had the right to bear arms for good reason. For those that live in the illegally prohibited areas MOVE! Ironically, DC and NYC have the highest crime rates in the country,, and they are some of the ones that do not allow the constitutionally protected right to Bear Arms This will take power away from the elite. Those own the money system that owns the corporations that own the government.

“Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be” that of every Free State.

“It is our duty still to endeavor to avoid war; but if it shall actually take place, no matter by whom brought on, we must defend ourselves. If our house be on fire, without inquiring whether it was fired from within or without, we must try to extinguish it. “

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”

“For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security.”

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

#10 Take Action

Let us become in-dependent from the "current" Debt system as it is our slave masters. It is time to be free from them. Spread this to everyone you know so that we may better ourselves. Let us stop the bickering and fighting over tiny differences between political parties and ideologies that are really not so different as they are all owned by the very same elite structures\entities at the top of the pyramid Let us create a new world where everyone is healthy eating UN-poisoned, abundant food ,with descent REAL education. Let us stop poisoning our minds with garbage from the corporate owned "main stream media”. Let us stop the needless wars where our children get put in harms way while politicians children are kept safe from harm..And corporations become profitable at the expense of our children’s spilled blood .Let us stop this insanity now for our children s and there children s sake. You really have to ask yourself are you happy with the way things are going? Are you really currently free? Is this truly a democracy that is controlled by the people FOR THE PEOPLE? Let us ALL remember what this truly means:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Thomas Jefferson


God Bless

Actually I disagree with this. Not entirely, but reallly all it takes for one to experience true freedom is to experience what is before them in the moment regardless of what it is. Good is often derived from experiences that most would consider "unfavorable." To isolate oneself because of fear during a time when many will be looking toward those who "have a clue" is certainly a freedom you have, but it doesn't make you free necessarily, IMHO.
