Right. So we know their plans , whats the course of action to stop this , it's not too late to fight while we still can. Look what happened to Lucius Sejanus the praetorian prefect , he had usurped power all the way but Tiberius used what last power he had and snuffed Sejanus out in one fell swoop. Lessons can be learned from Tiberius' strategy.

BUT they operate independently as a private organization. Then when you elect politicians who do not believe government has a role in regulating business, then the Fed Res is given a green light to abuse the power they have been granted by government.

The Fed Res was able to get by with its abuse because people foolishly support this free market idealism that extremely foolish, and completely unrealistic.

You mean this Tiberius?

This is who you want to emulate?

www.roman-emperors.org...


The reign of Tiberius (b. 42 B.C., d. A.D. 37, emperor A.D. 14-37) is a particularly important one for the Principate, since it was the first occasion when the powers designed for Augustus alone were exercised by somebody else. [[1]] In contrast to the approachable and tactful Augustus, Tiberius emerges from the sources as an enigmatic and darkly complex figure, intelligent and cunning, but given to bouts of severe depression and dark moods that had a great impact on his political career as well as his personal relationships. His reign abounds in contradictions. Despite his keen intelligence, he allowed himself to come under the influence of unscrupulous men who, as much as any actions of his own, ensured that Tiberius's posthumous reputation would be unfavorable; despite his vast military experience, he oversaw the conquest of no new region for the empire; and despite his administrative abilities he showed such reluctance in running the state as to retire entirely from Rome and live out his last years in isolation on the island of Capri. His reign represents, as it were, the adolescence of the Principate as an institution. Like any adolescence, it proved a difficult time.


Wouldn't Dick Cheney be playing the role of Lucius Sejanus?

Yes that Tiberius and no not to emulate him entirely , most of those roman emperors had one issue or another , hell most dictators do , but the PARTICULAR way he dealt with Sejanus' subversion , much like how the U.S has been SUBVERTED. I never said to emulate his character or lifestyle , just this PARTICULAR stratagem in which he used doublespeak to hide his intentions , luring Sejanus into a false sense of security straight into a trap. I in no way wish another Tiberius figure on the world although there are many like him anyway.

Interesting, so the double speak to provide confusion as to what is actually happening?

Leading him to fall directly into the trap unknowingly and without warning?
