Of course there wil be no real solutions put forward by those in the thrall of the central banks; ie politcians. They are bought and paid for by said banks, so it would be self defeating in their perceived short term interests to bite the hand that feeds. Realistically, or pragmatically I should say, youre right. Ideally a grass roots movement would arise and regain the constitutional power of printing interest free money that would serve the people instead of enslaving them.
Ideally. In reality the fed, like any invader, wont go down without a fight, and they have many fiat aces up their sleves.

No you are wrong
I wasn't attacking him
However I was sure some would interpret as so
I usually star his posts and flag his threads
If you interpreted as such though then you didn't understand my point

The only thing I would have to say to you is buy your food at a grocery store where it is much cheaper if you dont live out in the boonies and drugs are going to be the first thing tax'd no matter what.
You shouldn't complain about high cig prcies too just because of your personal addiction. Many countries are much worse, and just think of that 5 dollar pack of cigs could prob. feed 10 starving kids in xxxx country at least for one day.
I have a million and one vices as well lol, unfortunately as well mine are more than 7.99, but I do put in the work for them I guess, because if you like things that cost money, of course you do what you gotta do to get them. but "death and taxes" is the sad reality

I will be glad when the house of cards does fall. We need a new system that would lend itself to actual value. Thermal units or caloric units would be good standard basics to build a new "monetary" system upon. They would be hard pressed to create derivatives from British Thermal Units or Caloric units.
That is the point they want us to be so fed up with the stress of the economy that we are willing to or even begging for a change. Thus we will gladly except a new "monetary" system without question.
