That said, I don't necessarily assume its a bad thing. Sure we have our share of bad stuff that happens around the world, but given the size of the
planet, and the number of sentient inhabitants, its hard to imagine that kind of a setup without some problems. By and large, much of civilized
society is a pretty sweet gig. Of course there's very terrible places in the world, but as a species we've had progression as the years go by. Our
'curve' on the graph tends to go upwards, not downwards.
So that said, its conceivable that the concept of a world government, or more specifically, the assumption that one is already in play, may not really
be a bad thing. Who's to say its a good thing either, though.
Well, the way I see it is it can only be bad.
The politicians are the ones who are supposed to represent the people, instead your opinion falls onto deaf ears, and the politicians represent their
global agendas. Not just the executive branch, but legislative as well.
As long as the bankers are in control, the rest of society are slaves.
Slaves to debt.
I have plenty of friends right now who are working jobs at 1/4 of the wages they made 3 years ago. The problem is they still have bills budgeted for
four times their salary, because that's what they've been making for the majority of their careers. The major work outsourcing and the illegal
immigrant work with in our country had a huge part in it. This economic collapse was the final nail in the coffin.
Minimum wage is not keeping up with the cost of living and inflation. Its getting harder to live every day. Gas, Food, Cigarettes, Electricity,
Water...it all goes up, and I am making $10 less an hour then I was 10 years ago.
At least in the old days slaves were provided food and housing. This now we become economic slaves, and its more beneficial to the banks because we
feed, clothe and house ourselves. On top of those expenses, and on top of the debt you've occurred then they get ALL of your Federal Income taxes
(28% of my salary).
The Fed Income tax goes straight to the Federal Reserve bank to cover interest from the money borrowed by our own government. Then they hit you with
Social Security, knowing that by the time the young generation becomes the age to collect it, it will be -40 trillion in the hole, and the banks will
pocket the left overs from the failed SS program. The start of this might actually be government provided health insurance.
Oh but it doesn't stop here.....

And the biggest hidden Tax: INFLATION
Our forefathers saw this coming:
Thomas Jefferson said, "If the America people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation and then by
deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up
homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
And Andrew Jackson:
"Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs
of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the
deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you
go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves."
"If Congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given to be used by themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or
corporations...... The bold effort the present (central) bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the
American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it."
Finally, Ben Franklin:
"That is simple. In the Colonies we issue our own money.
It is called Colonial Scrip. We issue it in proper proportion
to the demands of trade and industry to make the products
pass easily from the producers to the consumers. In this manner,
creating for ourselves our own paper money, we control its
purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay no one."
