Yep....all you have to do is look at the red seal US Notes (issued directly by the Treasury AT NO INTEREST---that was the key) that JFK had put into circulation to compete with the Federal Reserve Notes, and one of LBJ's first EO's was to rescind Kennedy EO that put that in place to figure out WHO the money behind the coup was.....<quoted text>Ed, you said it well. I applaud your post. When Kennedy decided to challenge the Federal Reserve..........well, we know the rest of the story. You have a level headed approach, got a plan?
I gave Phil Roe a $5 US Note in person one day, and asked him to go to DC and figure out WHY we have to use Fed Notes (at interest) instead of US Notes at no cost to us......have yet to hear back from him on that issue.
IF you want to know how things work in this country on a national ( or often local as well ) scale, FOLLOW THE MONEY.
As for my own personal plan, well, heck, I'm getting on in years, and ain't gonna be around that much longer anyway, so I'll leave the long term problems to another generation. In the mean time, we've pretty much hunkered down on a little homestead, grow most of our own food, produce all of our own power (solar), and just try our best to use as little of the "system" as possible.
Starve the beast should be a national policy !
