People are disgusted and at their wits end. They want solutions to their problems. They see four more years of negatives coming their way -
unemployment, recession, taxes, etc.
Laugh if you must but try to understand the frustration that is driving people who disgree with you to these extremes. They are desperate for
They haven't seen any in four years and they don't have any hope for the next four.
I can sympathize with people who are looking for solutions and certainly with calls for secession from the union, but at least these people could cite
the actual cause of their dilemma. The problems began a lot longer ago than 2008, or even 1908, or even 1808. The problems are not a result of the
"union" of states, but with how that union was funded ~ bankers. Remember, the first clause in article 1 section 8 provides for taxing the people to
pay off congress's borrowing from bankers.
As always, the problem is MONEY and how it's created, based on credit and debt.
The first congressman from Georgia, James Jackson, seemed to have been one of few people that understood where Hamilton’s plan would take the
young nation. On February 9, 1790 he stated: (Annals of Congress, Vol. I, February 1790).
I contend that such a funding system in this country will be highly dangerous to the welfare of the Republic. It may, for a moment, raise our
credit, and increase our circulation by multiplying a new form of currency, but it must hereafter settle upon our posterity a burden which they can
neither bear nor relieve themselves from. It will establish a precedent in America that may, and in all probability will, be pursued by the Sovereign
authority, until it brings upon us that ruin which it has never failed to bring, or is inevitably bringing, upon all the nations of the earth who have
had the temerity to make the experiment. Let us take warning by the errors of Europe and
guard against the introduction of a system followed by calamities so universal. Though our present debt be but a few millions, in the course of a
single century it may be multiplied to an extent we dare not think of.
This all happened long before the federal reserve was even a twinkle in JP Morgan's eye.
But no one thinks about simply seceding from the international banks. The states NEED all that funding, they grovel for that funding, they give up all
their people's rights to keep that funding flowing because they can't think outside the box the founders put them in 250 years ago.
