You want a rosy picture? Of course, you do not want a rosy picture and only meant to goad Obama supporters into defending the house of cards that has
somehow remained standing as long as it has. House of cards are destined to crumble, and it takes far less than a big bad wolf to huff and puff to
blow that house down. It is folly to expect to find shelter from the storm while hiding in a house made of cards.
It is folly to blame Presidents and Congress for the apathy and embrace of expedience that we the people have embraced for more than 100 years in this
nation. We cannot have one foot in the door, and one foot out the door and pretend we are going somewhere. Either we step back into the house of
cards and hold our collective breath, or we leave such fragile structures and begin to re-build.
Re-building is not contingent upon waiting for approval from a government hell bent on controlling us. Why ask permission from such an authoritarian
state when the answer is easily predicted. The answer will be no. Thousands of people came from all across The United States after Katrina to help
those in need in New Orleans, and the federal government did all they could to stop that from happening. For the many who asked the federal
government permission to help the victims of Katrina, the answer was no. Now for those thousands of people who ask the federal government to help out
with the BP fiasco, the answer is no.
I have heard it said that it is better to not ask for permission and to apologize later. In the matter of the federal government I say no permission
to act is necessary, and apologizing later is out of the question. We do not now, or did we ever, need permission to do what is our fundamental right
to do. We do not now, nor did we ever, have to apologize for exercising our basic and inalienable rights.
Free markets do not operate on the foundation of permission to operate. If you think you need a license to do business, then you think you need
permission to do business. If you think you need a bank account in order to create wealth, then you think you need permission to create wealth. If
you think that banking institutions are necessary to a free market, then you may as well believe in unicorns and credit fairies. If you understand
that all markets respond to the simple law of supply and demand, then you understand the most important principle of business. If you understand that
all successful businesses maximize their income and minimize their outgo, then you understand the basic principle of success.
If you think you are liable for the so called "Personal Income Tax", then chances are you have never even bothered to look at the law to begin with.
If you think the Federal Reserve controls you, then you do not understand what inalienable rights mean. If you believe that fearing your oppressors
is prudent, then you understand neither prudence nor oppression. If you think life is easy, then you don't understand life. If you think expedience
is the wise course of action, then you will not fight your oppressors until it becomes expedient to do so, and it will not become expedient to do so
until long after you have been financially ruined. If you think it is prudent to wait until ruin happens before acting, then much like the victims of
Katrina, you will, in all likelihood, become a victim.
