For the love of all that's perforated! That sounds like you're advocating wealth redistribution! Of course, we did used to have a large, organised body of people who fought for just that & indeed several other ideas that would have protected ordinary "folks" from the depredations of big business. But they got a bad press. Just so uncool & now totally passe. Infiltrated, perverted & corrupted; their power destroyed from within & legislated away from without. Join me fellow slaves as we hum quietly, under our breath lest our masters hear us, just 1 last time 'L'internationale' in requiem for the Trade Union movement. Dear friends, gathered as we are today to mark the passing of our freedom, let us not forget that we almost had some & let us also make sure we rid our homes of any swathes of cloth sufficient to make a black, red or GOD IN HEAVEN save us all from a black & red flag! Sure in the certain hope that if we do not offend, we shall not be persecuted. Arse'ole! [/sarcasm]
Return those funds to the Treasury (re-capitalizing and stregthening the nation's balance sheet) while subdividing the funds unto the individual States within the 'Republic' and then further dividing the refunded monies as a 'stimulus' to the folks, or citizens if you prefer, that were conned out of their savings to begin with. Keeping one in debt seems to keep one quite busy and distracted. Guess that's where the stress comes from? Of course. You weren't born to be a slave unto a system.
Whom ever gave one the right to tax another's right to live on Earth?

Basically what is happening(to the people who do not understand) is take but dont ask where it came from policy.
Think of the fed as a drug dealer...
Think of our govt as the drug warehouse....
Think of the people as the addicts....
The drug dealer supplies the warehouse with their drugs. Then the warehouse stores and distributes the drugs out to the people by truck,van,pigeon,ect to the addicts.
What is happening is that our warehouse is out of drugs, because our addicts are consuming so much, but have no way to pay back these drugs because they never had the money to pay in the first place. So now our warehouses are in trouble, so they order more product with more interest in order to keep the addicts happy for the time being(but in the end all they are doing is bankrupting us even more and the FED is more than happy to do it because thats more money in their books) with that and other players around the world buying our bonds(but no need to get into that in this example). Now the addicts(the people) notice that they are paying out more money for fake goods that mean absolutely nothing, eventhough it gets them the bread, its basically giving them less for their money until it all evens out(which it wont because its too far in).
So now the addicts want to audit the fed to see how bad they are really screwing over the people, but the FED doesnt want that because that would basically let the addicts know how badly they are being screwed over. so Now the dealer is threatening hell on earth if we look at their books.
In a nutshell.
(mods)-please dont delete this post because I used drugs as an example, in no way am I promoting or endorsing drugs, or drug use. Some people just need to have it painted out for them in a way that they can understand. Thank You.

The UN troops are to patrol the US during a martial law, not Americans. American troops are strategically overseas fighting 'other' agendas.
