Don’t Trust Them

Thomas G. Brown |

I have always thought that trusting those who got you into a mess are probably not the best folks for the job of getting you out of this mess. To me it is equal to allowing the fox to guard the hen house after a few go missing. This $700 billion dollar boondoggle is nothing more than socializing the financial industry and giving over more power to the federal government. In addition this will do nothing except push are fiat currency further down the toilet. If we want real change an a better economy we have to do two things. One, abolish the Federal Reserve. This is not a government agency but a private entity that charges the US government the privilege of printing our currency. We should…..no we must go back to backing our currency with gold or silver. This will protect us from inflation, wasteful spending by government, in addition this will force government federal, state, or local to ask if we want to pay for new services due to to the fact that there would need to be a tax. Article I section says straight out gold and silver are money not a bill created out of debt.
Two, is to allow businesses to fail. Get government out of rewarding failure through a bailout. The Great Depression was prolonged by government intervention. We have spent $450 billion in bailouts so far this year and want to add at least another 700 billion dollars. Let’s boot the folks in congress that vote for this socializations of our economy and elect folks who are going to embrace the constitution.

As I suspected Bill O’Reilly interrupted Congressman Paul similar to the way he does to other guests on his show. Dr. Paul tried several times to explain his position on Iraq and Afghanistan and cut off an told to answer a the question directly. The problem is that the questions asked could not be answered in a one or two sentence synopsis. I hate to break it to Bill but before we invaded Iraq there wasn’t a terrorist presence. Also, Iran didn’t feel threatened before this but with our great plan to take it to our “enemies” overseas so we don’t have to fight them at home. How would we like it if China invaded Canada and then called our military a terrorist organization. In addition their navy has amassed a battle fleet of the coast of San Diego. I’m sure we would ramp up our military, increase weapons production, and create more nuclear warheads. So, why are we angered when Iran does the same thing.

As for the Iranian threat to Israel. They have over 300 nuclear weapons to defend against an attack from Iran. I understand the fear of Israel but they have one of the best military s in the world so I’m sure they could fend off any force that attacks. My guess is if they are attacked (which I highly doubt) they will be able to end the conflict on their own and quickly.

Lastly, the argument that a terror group would get it’s hands on the nuclear wepon that Iran is buliding seems a bit naive. Why after years of working to create a weapon to insure protection from attack would they give or sell it to a third party. This makes no sense and is one of the strangest reasons for attacking Iran and staying in Iraq.

If We followed Liberty

I can not deal with the conventions of these two bloated parties both believe in a poor economic policy which allows the dollar value to erode day by day as we send more fiat money out of the country thus further putting us into debt.
What would be good would be for are nation is simple. No intervention with other folks affairs locally, nationally, and internationally. If we stayed our of our neigbors life we would have more time for ours and most likely ejoy things more. If our nation stayed out or lives and what we do with them as long as we do not infringe on the rights of others life would be better. And last If we stopped poking our noses in international affairs we might have a better standing in the world and we would be doing better economically for the funds going to these police actions, wars, nation buildings.
