If people really wanted to do something and change our system, do nothing.

Thats right - go out, buy a bunch of food and get the grill going... don't go to work, don't pay your bills, don't pay your taxes, don't go shopping... nothing.

It is the only way to bring TPTB to their knees. I have outlined it in my own thread here:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Sure - go out an protest... but I think "they" will get the point more directly if the entire USA stops and tells them to leave, and take their failed monetary system with them.

Also, using the method I came up with... no one has to die... pretty simple concept. Lets not get all gung ho out there... If you start shooting at troops and police, you will die and you will not win your cause.

Star for you my friend. Simply don't play their sordid and corrupt game. Sit back, relax and say "NO!"

Protest the FED

Seriously....
you want to start all this with 30 minutes of animated speculation, are you trying to recruit children...
why not post some "actual" proof, some quotes or articles from commonly accepted sources or something...
no wonder no one takes these things seriously...



Did not join.
yet...
edit on 6-2-2011 by RadicalRebel because: added "yet" comment to indicate that i have not been completely turned off of this, will monitor situation




Well...I have joined, and I am trying my hardest to get word out, problem is, people seemed to be more concerned about other things i.e: the super bowl, what that one celebrity woman is wearing etc. It is sad that all the information in the world is on the net, but it's to often over looked.

I just created the group so that we could have a way to communicate via social media. There is not a lot of relevant information on that group just yet, but I, along with others, would be more than happy to post as much information needed to bring in more people.

But you start your plan with shopping? I personally don't think this would be the way to bring a positive change. Feeding the infrastructure of our country isn't a bad thing at all. What's important is where our tax dollars and bills get redistributed and spent.

Unless you have some kind of self sufficient farm that can be set up and be able to feed yourself and your family immediately - then yes. The plan has to start with the needs of you and your family first, which would involve shopping for food.

The only way to initiate positive change would be to remove the monetary system completely and to not feed into it. WHY? Because it got us into this mess in the first place. Think about it - humanity is basing wealth off of a shiny yellow rare rock while billions of people on this planet are starving to death.

This is how much POWER money and Wallstreet have over us
and yeah, it was reported on the MSM)



So HELL yeah - it is time for them to starve. You pick up a gun, a knife a rock and try to attack the police or a soldier - you will die. Why not relax, sit back and watch TPTB squirm for once.

Our tax dollars and bills:
Do you honestly believe that you or anyone else's opinion or thoughts matter to our government or to the corporations? Do you actually believe you can dictate change to these powers?

No – I don't think you believe that at all. The ONLY way to revolt against the powers of the US government and their greedy corporate friends is to not give them ANY fuel. Their fuel is money.

Going out and buying food so that you will be able to sustain yourself and starve the corporations will have an absolute and direct effect. Think about it – how would the government try to make 310 million people go back to work?

All this plan needs is people to wake up. Don't give the government, or any PTB a violent path – PLEASE... you can destroy them peacefully by just being with your family and friends and shutting the system down.

This is the only LOGICAL form of revolution against such an entrenched evil enemy....

*stepping off of soap box now*

Peace.

Don't know if that is really the case.....of course they could end a riot from three miles away with a bomb or a missile however I'm pretty sure regardless of reasoning that would create martyrs which would outrage the country and wake even more people up.

The fluoride in the water, chemicals intentionally put into our food and drink, and the intentional obesity epidemic have all been enacted to make this American public fat and apathetic. People are going to have to get hungry and not be able to even afford to go to work cuz gas is 5.00 per gallon and it costs 100 dollars more than it did the month before to get the same amount of groceries. Locally is the level this all needs to start on let's all organize locally within our own communities get some number of people aware. Then by May or April we organize all of the local groups nationally either in multiple locations or in a large group for one major protest. If you are happy with the way things are then by all means do nothing. But THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN therefore it needs to be fixed, votes don't work and you are utterly deluded if you think that your vote matters in this corrupt sinking ship.

Once we change this system however we manage to do it, reinstate the barter system, if you believe gold or silver or jewels will be valuable get some and save them. However also consider some commodities that will be valuable in a post economic collapse. Cigarettes, alcohol, food, an extra mode of transportation, i.e. car or motorcycle, etc.............

Go away and learn what plants in your local wilderness you can eat.....get some B.O.B.s (bug out bags) just to be prepared even if nothing happens atleast you'll have the beginnings of some cool camping gear.

It would go a long way if the American people stood up and said enough is enough create some legislation for debt forgiveness for all Americans. If you own a home with a mortgage you don't owe anything anymore, if you own a car and you're in debt on it you don't owe it anymore, no more federal income tax (which there is no law saying you have to pay anyway), create a flat tax system and provide basic necessities for everyone on the continent. Shelter, food, water, transportation, and employment. If all these basic necessities were taken care of we would be a better people for it with less crime because most crime occurs out of desperation, take the desperation out of the equation.

I've got something simple that can be put out there.

Let's all ask once and for all why the Government is with holding information about the economy for one? The next is why there is not information about coming Global Changes like say a Pole Shift?

There is obviously much information on the internet about the severity of occurences related to both so why don't we demand an explanation. If it's not good enough then we demand more information from the Obama Administration.

Just a thought, but I thought I would keep it as simple as " Tell us the Truth Now".

Peace, Muzeamy

You forgot one of the biggest killers - student loan debt. After dangling that golden "high paying job" carrot to all us impressionable youngsters throughout the 90s, TPTB sent all our "high paying jobs" OVERSEAS. Now we're all stuck working low paying jobs with no hope of EVER paying off the inflated costs of these useless degrees we worked so hard for! I personally, at my current yearly (before tax) income, would have to pay EVERYTHING I make for more than 7 years just to pay off my own student loan debt! This is the MOST outrageous way in which they're enslaving us - go to college and get a degree or two, racking up tens of thousands of dollars of debt, just so you can sling burgers or stock shelves for the rest of your life?

When the collection agencies call, I say "You want my money? Give me a job I can live on and you'll get your money. Until then, you can't suck blood from a stone"

DEBT FORGIVENESS - I think that's the one that will unite this country. Everyone is feeling it already and it's only a matter of time before it sparks the rioting in the streets.

My question is to all of those who are all about overthrowing the government my violent means: How would you ever expect to win against such a superior adversary?

The reason the USA is in decline is because of corporate greed, and also the leaders we elected that support these corporations.

People need to think outside of the box on this one. There is not going to be some liberating force within the United States that is armed to the teeth coming to anyone’s rescue, we need to use other means to rescue ourselves.

The weapons that these greedy corporations and government officials use is money. The only way to take our country back is to stop the cash flow and starve them out and to remove monetary currency as a means of one's "worth."

We can still have a democracy without the economic basis of a capitalist system. I am not for Marxism, Communism, nor socialism. Basing the wealth of nations on a yellow sparkly rock seems so unevolved it is pathetic if you really think about it. Money after all is just paper, and mostly not even worth the amount of the paper it is printed on.

We as a people have no idea or a clue how much gold is backing the US dollar because it has been hidden from us and removed. For those of you who are against living in an economy without money as a unit of measure of wealth - I ask, how can you righteously be against this since you have no idea what is backing the US dollar?

We are already living in an economy without monetary backing - people just don't realize it yet. The dollar is worthless, the only people who know this are the elitist bankers who keep toying with humanity like we are a joke.

Until people wake up, more people will starve and die because of their beliefs in a failed economic system. It will get worse.

Greetings cousins of the south. I'm Canadian so I don't know if this can be applied. Check it and if you agree or dissagree let me know what you think.

For us to be able to get a point across to our goevernments we have to play their game right? They use money to control us so why not do the same? For every negotiation one needs a bargening chip. Ours come in the form of income tax returns.

According to canadian law you're allowd to file for income tax every 5 years. If alot of people can band together, why not hold that income tax return. Have it filled out make sure all is in order but keep it. Don't send it out to THEM just yet. By us keeping cash flow a secret from TPTB, it gives us a little bit more leverage when it comes to demands. If they don't know how much money is coming in, it makes it pretty hard to plan budgets.

So in a perfect world everybody keeps their tax returns for the first year. Make a serious, well thought out demand like ad a couple billions in the educational infrastrucrure so we can send our kids to university and have an affordable education to help the shotage of doctors...what ever they are, our demands must be for the peole. We appointed our leaders and they have failed us in many many occasions. Now it's time to take the power back.

The pen is mightier than the sword. So it is said, but when the pen is controlled (AKA MSM deregulated) then what other choice do you have? I believe it would be insane to take up arms against the "federalists" or what have you. It's not feasible, and teetering on Anti-American / Enemy Combatant. Many within our government are not evil and actually want to make things better. But most will just go with the flow. I understand the frustration, but violence won't work. You see how much power the liberals have? They can teach pedophiles how to get away with being pedophiles... they can put a minority above all other races.. they can tear our Republic down from the seams... and we just watch.. Politically is the way. Flood the system with new people. Kick out the old congressmen and senators. Don't let people go too many terms, put extensive checks and balances on the houses. End the fed and control our interest(s) !! A revolution on the hill. If it takes 50 million Americans coming out of their homes and marching to DC to get it done - so be it. Be a threat of violence, but no violence. We need social justice, not social chaos.

There will be a visible revolution - visible in hindsight. Any traditional, violent or non-violent attempt at "revolution" will fail. However, the "fall of the old and a rise of the new" will be quite visible as the correct changes are made.

To us, experiencing it, the "revolution" will just feel like "getting back on track" and "doing right by our future"...

but when historians look back, they'll most certainly call it a revolution!

I'm reminded of the "revolution of 1800":

They are using that blatant lie about people with university degrees getting higher paid jobs here in Blighty as well. By the time todays students leave university with a debt of £30, 000 hanging around their head Cameron and the Con/Dems will have ensured that theres no jobs for them to take. The government says that they wont want the money paid back until they are earning a certain amount of money but you can be sure that they will soon scrap that little gem of a rule. Once these graduates then end up on the debtors list they wont be able to buy anything on credit.. Their life will be more or less over before its even begun...
