Any illusion that the US government works for us (the people) was washed away for me with the first gulf war!

They are for sale, I grew up seeing this (I grew up in Rhode Island, the crookedest state in the union) back
then 40 years ago seeing government contracts given to special people ( like a state senators son/wife/business partner etc.)
was common place. Seems the cancer that was government in RI has infected the rest of the country or.....................
is was corrupt all along!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, Sheila, you are of course absolutely right... they should "stop complying" . However, the average dude is so duped that he or she doesn't have the faintest idea as to what is actually going on. The euphoric election of Obama serves as ample proof of that. ;-) The average dude does in fact think that their politicians are something else than pre-selected puppets of the shadow government... the families who were given the right to produce the USD out of nothing a hundred years ago, and who have repeated their scam in Europe a hundred years later with the Euro. Fiat money rules the world; not politicians.

I'm no fan of senseless bloodshed but...
Our nation is in dire need of some kind of a Revolution.

Interesting to me that it was carried by the majority of Democrats (154). Only 68 Republicans voted in favor and I must find out who they are!

When I started letthemfail, it was the 23 trillion dollar bailout commitment to the debt-peddling Ponzi schemers that was unsustainable. Now it's Social Security and Medicare. Now we magically have a "spending problem" and a "revenue shortage".

Meanwhile, the criminals who created the debt problem your government is betrothed to bail out have been so richly rewarded for their crimes, they are about to crash and burn again, as understood and expected by anyone with an ounce of common sense.

We can't save this system (nor should we want to) but acid reflux and armed militias won't solve much other then self-destruction.

The only way to accomplish both, bring down the fiat system AND preserve your own health and welfare (and sanity) is to engage in the process of dumping you paper debt claims (dollars) for real money (gold).

Gold advocates get a bad rap as being part of this corrupt system, but in fact all your dollars are "promises to pay" which are about to be broken. And gold represents "payment in full".

It may not be as exciting or argumentative as political "activism" but shorting paper gold by taking physical off the market will get the job done. I liked Max Keiser's idea with silver, but it is gold that the oil producing countries of the world wish to settle in.

The world runs on oil, and those who produce it want gold in exchange. The timeline of value being stored in paper has ended. Paper will remain a unit of account and a medium of exchange, REALTIVE to the issuers reserve store of value-gold.

Thus when the monetary authority excercises prudence, foriegn gold flows into reserves, when the authority is profligate, they flow out. Gold keeps money honest, where politicians certainly cannot.

Thanks for exposing this egregious example of the MSM 's bias. Only 29 % of the Republicans who voted voted for this bill whereas 82 % of the Democrats who voted voted for this bill. Then they quote a Republican Senator who was not commenting on this bill but making a general statement. Wonder how this story would have been told by Breitbart?
