To follow up on what our options are... (and I apologize for the long post, but I do have a lot to say)
The illusion of choice started with money. Money is the instrument used to force you to have to make a choice every day. They have found our weakness,
which is our survival. Find a weakness and exploit it, and our weakness is our instinct of self-preservation and survival.
We HAVE to go to work every day to be "given" what we need so that we believe we then have a choice on how to use that money to survive. It's either
go to work, or starve, freeze, be homeless, etc. (Hobson's Choice). The money just goes back full circle right into the same hands that gave it to us
to begin with, thus the illusion that we have chosen anything for ourselves, when at the end of the day, the banks get back every penny that they
When this country was founded, it was done so with the understanding that members of Congress were chosen on virtue. People lived in towns, and chose
the "best of the best" of the people in their towns to represent them in Washington, feeling comfortable that those people would best represent them.
With Congress having the power to coin money, this almost guaranteed that if those who printed the money abused this power, they would be thrown out
and new people selected. This prevented fiscal abuse because we could always rout out the greedy politicians as long as there were enough virtuous
ones. It didn't take long for banks to come in to the picture and start using money as an instrument to influence the people to choose less virtuous
men to represent them. All levels of government quickly became corrupted.
Where we really went wrong is when we gave the power to coin money to those who could NOT be governed. By taking away the fiscal responsibility from
Congress, whom which we governed through elections and could therefore monitor and change when needed, and giving that power to a private central bank
(the Federal Reserve), we effectively gave up the ability to choose how our money was printed and spent. This is where the sleight of hand occurred by
the banks and the illusion really began here in this country. Before that, you didn't require money to survive. Land was given to people. A farmer
could barter and live happily, as could most Americans. Money was meant to simplify carrying around gold and silver, not to enslave those who didn't
have it and needed it. We now have no ability to control how money is regulated.
It didn't take long for the banks to force businesses to do their bidding. By banks working together, they could force businesses to do anything they
wanted by dangling the carrot over their heads with promises of grandeur as long as they followed "their" rules. This is still the case today.
Businesses today can't survive without credit, without loans to expand, etc. The banks use business, corporations and commerce as the proverbial slave
boats of 200+ years ago. The corporations use this power, along with the banks, to manipulate the people into intentional and willing slavery. They
use the illusion to keep people believing that we have a choice in who we elect, how our money is spent, how we deal with other nations, etc.
We don't choose who we elect... the choices are chosen for us, and we have to pick from them. (Morton's Fork) We don't get to find the "best of the
best" anymore and promote them into positions of power, we get who "they" choose to serve their interests and can win a popularity contest. Left,
Right, an illusion. Burger King, McDonalds, an illusion. Nike, Reebok, and illusion. Chase Bank, Bank of America, an illusion. It all leads back to
the same group of people, a small group of families that control everything we know today.
So how do we think outside of the box? We do have a choice. We, the people, need to take back control of the instrument used to enslave us. Put the
power to coin money back in the hands of Congress, where it can be governed accordingly, and take it away from the private banks, which can not.
Return our elected officials to being public servants, with no benefit other than serving the people. No endless pensions, no medical perks, no high
paying salaries, but just as the Constitution states - public servants to you and I, the people of this country. We would quickly identify those who
really want to help the People, and not the illusionists, and therefore be the masters of our own fate.
There really is no other way. While I don't advocate revolution lightly, we MUST find a way. We have to use their tools against them, and take back
what is rightfully ours, and has been stolen away from us.
