I’m getting hammered by conservative friends lately who are freaked out by ObamaCare, Obama 2.0′s Supreme Court appointments, etc. Watching this, it is just preposterous to think we can trust Romney’s current positions on anything important. Except of course, his desire for war, more bailouts, and assaults on The Constitution/civil rights.
Will we be brought to a place of suffering and humiliation so that the Kingdom of God can manifest? That may be the way of the world, time will tell.
Psalm 146:3 says all that needs to be said, “Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.”
The majority of people, and certainly popular economists and politicians, constantly urge us to support government economic interventions, bailouts, and Federal Reserve monetary massages to “save us from another Great Depression.”
But what if their valiant brilliance is steadily drowning us in a sea of paper money and debt instead of energizing our economy? What if there are other schools of thought that show us a clear and proven path out of our economic trauma?
Enter Austrian Economics and the counter-intuitive power of freedom.
Freedom: yes, it is an amazing speech from Braveheart, but is it also the root of economic prosperity?
No! Freedom in the hands of greedy capitalist pigs who are willing to pillage and destroy the planet is our greatest enemy! Without the government to protect us we’re all screwed! -Samantha Statist
Well, yes, people can be greedy, and certainly capitalists have done harm to the planet; but you must ask yourself: who gave them that power? Was it the government and their apathy towards property rights? And specifically to finance: was it the government that mandated banks to lend massive quantities of money to people without financial aptitude and ability to repay? Was it the government that lowered interest rates so low that borrowing and spending money was as easy as breathing and as exciting as binge drinking in Atlantic City?
When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans. -Ron Paul
If you have eyes and ears, you are painfully aware of our economic problems. How to solve them requires listening to the people who saw this coming—hint: there’s a dozen or so collected in the superb soon-to-be-released documentary The Bubble.
Check the interview below for an introduction to the driven, talented and wise beyond his years Director, Mr. Jimmy Morrison—and lookout for the film when it drops in the upcoming months.
It’s a funny thing today to see the battles waging against “liberals” and “conservatives” raging for either “free market capitalism” or “government-controlled industry”—but what if our commonly perceived choices aren’t all that different?
Despite the logical perception and the apparent differences between Obama and Romney, Jon Stewart does a great job showing how “socialist” many prominent “conservatives” really are.
If Obama’s policies and core philosophy is so flawed, and Romney shows a multitude of similar positions, why are so many placing so much faith in him?
In the end this is a Strong Word: “Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.” Psalm 146:3
Check ‘em out here, he’s gonna give Romney a run for his money on a lack of consistency.
Speaking of The Hermanator, his new ad is absolutely ridiculous. Thanks God, the true conservative/liberty-minded/freedom-loving person’s choice is becoming clear. If you’re scared about the war/security issue, please ask yourself this: if we bring back the incredible arsenal we have from around the world do you really think terrorists will want to come here?
If you want to know why terrorists attack us, you might want to ask the former Bin Laden division Chief and CIA veteran Michael Scheuer. “This war is motivated by the activities of our government in the Muslim world.”
Here’s Herm’s ad in all of its greatness:
Whether you agree or not, this is an interesting insight into the protests. Taibbi’s still working on his street cred with me, but usually I like his stuff.
However objects only move when the right leverage is applied. In this case, when the right perception to a certain reality is gained.
So, what is the “proper perception” I’m so confidently (arrogantly?) theorizing?
this is—> Your time is an equal trade of money (therefore it’s also not-taxable and the income tax shouldn’t apply, but that’s another topic. check the Joe Banister interview for more), therefore your money is your time, therefore when your money is taken, your freedom to do what you like with your life is taken, therefore when mega banks like The IMF and World Bank make massive loans out of your taxes they have actually enslaved you and stolen your time.
This is slavery, this is short-term kidnapping, this is a violation of our rights–STEALING!–in bright daylight.
Check the video for more detail on how the banksters at The IMF and World Bank are hand-crafting loans that will require the receiving countries to turn over their rights to freedom in exchange for short-tern funds.
Welcome to the revolution, you are the resistance. We are the ones we’ve been waiting to read about. If change does not happen now, when can it?
