Benevolent Totalitarianism

Benevolent totalitarianism is the concept of government control by and through deception.

As we know, very corrupt government can have the appearance of normalcy and even benevolence. This is a deception to cover political and economic corruption even on a grand scale as in the United States today.

Benevolent totalitarianism as in the U.S. today can prolong repression way beyond its normal existence. It extends the life of a criminal regime and enriches the elite who might otherwise be prosecuted and sent to prison. When the ruling class or junta owns all the machinery of state including the banking/monetary system and welfare (food stamp) distribution, they can very easily arrange society so that most citizens feel warm and protected.

Fraudulent political systems and even the whole world thrive on the corrupt paper money fiat debt system. A fiat monetary system by its real name is the foundation of government fraud. The people of the world are at the mercy of organized crime led by the fountain of fiat.

The United States now is in a state of collapse. The quicker more people are alerted to the revelation of truth that government is organized crime, the quicker the return to personal and political freedom as we had before the beginning of the Federal Reserve System in the United States and the worldwide fiat central banking system that sprang from the Federal Reserve.

Corrupt political and monetary fiat systems always self-destruct as they always spend out of control. Trust in government and its monetary system begins to give way as the facade of benevolence and democracy morphs into force, intimidation and confrontation.

The process is gradual except when the elite miscalculates and does things such as assess private bank accounts to pay for the corruption of the debt money system as happened in March 2013 on the island of Cyprus. This event quickly triggered opposition and was as quickly reversed.

It is evidence of how quickly the monetary system could explode and inflame the world against the bankers and government fraud. The increase of overt repression and intimidation will alert more and more people to the crime of government. This social cataclysm can be observed, measured and charted and the end predicted.

History observes that the degree of currency collapse corresponds to reveal the end of the present regime. The collapse of any national currency because of the profligacy of government and its politicians brings a breakdown of the social and economic order. At the same time, there is a breakdown of morality and of law and order.

Revolutions are rarely contained and never reversed, but they hasten the collapse of the social, economic and political order. Politicians almost to a man support the system. Since most politicians at the Federal level are psychopathic and attracted to a parasite existence, few of them are aware that they live in the end times for the present order. They wouldn’t and couldn’t believe that their way of life will soon end.

Joseph Goebbels, Nazi propaganda minister during World War II said: “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion; truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Governments are non-producing parasites, but they must hide this fact from the people. Government does not produce anything, but it consumes vast resources and wealth. Governments tax the people directly but also collect from the people by stealth and outright fraud.

Presently, the U.S. government is carrying out the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of the world. Few Americans even suspect it. It is stealing by devaluing the U.S. dollar. New dollars are constantly created, and these new dollars dilute all the dollars in existence. This is economic war carried out in secrecy and pretense.

Where Is Your Money?

The people on the island of Cyprus found out that the banks own their accounts and that the banks could extract money to pay for the bank’s deficit. This is not a novel. It’s the real world! It is theft by the banks, and the implications are very serious.

If I had much money in a regular commercial bank, I would take most of it out now!

Of course, I did this a long time ago. I also terminated my “retirement” accounts and bought silver and gold coins to have in my possession, and I do mean in my physical possession. It has proven to be profitable. But the thing is, I own it, whereas I didn’t own the retirement accounts. The government owns retirement accounts, as millions are about to discover.

In fact, if you have paper money in your pocket, you don’t own it. The system can steal your paper money even if nobody knows where it is. You didn’t know that? All they have to do is print or create new paper money and, Bang!, yours is worthless. This is the most clever form of stealing ever devised.

And you know what, nobody seems to object. They have taught us to love Big Brother. We love our masters, and we love our paper money!

Ninety-nine percent of Americans have their focus on nominal dollars. Nominal dollars are fickle quicksand. Yet we believe that the paper money in our possession is real dollars. This paper money is owned by the system. Your silver and gold is owned by you, outside the system. It’s the real money.

We are in the last days of a failing system. Government is hunting wealth to take. They have shown conclusive evidence that they want the some $23 trillion in Americans’ retirement funds.

And now with bank confiscation of bank accounts in Cyprus, alert Americans have been duly warned.

Protect yourself with gold and silver and stored food and supplies needed for survival.

We have very hard times ahead; but after the cataclysm, there will be a new order!

          • Frank Kahn

            I have been following your posts and can finally say that it is you who is either misinformed or lacking in knowledge. Pairing yourself with the likes of KG is proof of this condition.

            There will always be “people in power” who are confused and just plain stupid when it comes to the realities of what is and what can be.

            The true stupidity, in your story, was not about covering the tracks of the grader, it was performing an IG inspection in a war zone. When I was stationed at Anderson AFB during Nam, the feared white jet of the Inspectors landed. 6 Hours later it left because the base commander told them to leave.

            KG suffers from the same condition that the inspectors did. He is confused about what is real and what is possible. Religion is married to natural law. Humans are a part of nature so religious concepts are normal to us. He states that it is the religious conservatives that are destroying our nation. He is wrong, the policies of our government have been shaped by both liberal and conservatives. Both sides of the coin have contributed to the economic problems we are facing. He attempts to ridicule conservatives by twisting what is said. He says that we believe that democracy is communism lite. He is wrong, democracy leads to communism. It is analogous to a gateway drug. Our government says pot smoking leads to heroin addiction. They are not calling pot “heroin lite”.

            Religious values are a cornerstone of civilization, you cannot remove them and maintain civilization. The fact that people fight over which religion is better is not a religious problem, it is a human problem. If you follow good religious practices you are tolerant of others views.

            If you argue morality based on nature’s laws, you are not pushing religion on anyone.

            He used the example of gays (wrong name, gay means happy not homosexual) when saying who was not responsible. He seems to think that we RELIGIOUS EXTREMISTS consider homosexuals to be the cause of the problem. They are not the cause, they are a symptom of the problem. We (those of us that think rationally) consider homosexuals morally wrong because they go against the laws of nature. True homosexuals, that practice what they claim, can not reproduce. Nature will not allow them to propagate in that fashion. If they decide to conduct their lives in this fashion, fine, but don’t ask me to consider them “normal” or try to claim that they deserve marriage entitlements as a RIGHT.

            Some, claim that they were born that way, which makes them normal. Well, that is wrong no matter how you look at it. Some identical twins are born conjoined. This is not normal, nor would it be classified as natural, it is an anomaly. If all identical twins were born conjoined it would be normal. People born as conjoined twins do not have conjoined twins as offspring, so the condition does not breed true. I have never read a report that indicated that homosexual people, who break their own rules and have sex with a hetero partner, have produced genetically homosexual offspring. So, if they don’t, homosexuality does not breed true either. Something went wrong in the early development of the homosexual. Maybe the brain is unbalanced or maybe the genes got mixed up and put a penis on a girls body. I dont know what it is, but something made a girl think she is a boy or a boy think he is a girl and that is not normal.

      • BrotherPatriot

        Do not forget that we are NOT a Democracy. Even though the controlled media has been brainwashing the American people since 1913 into thinking that we are. This is when they took over our money supply with the illegal Federal Reserve as Bob mentions.

        Though we are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic…we haven’t been this for a very long time now either. Its obvious that an Oligarchy now rules us using proxies (our “elected” leaders) to do their bidding. This is what Bob also is alluding to.

        I will say this as well to you, Bob. I’m hoping your comment about a “new order” isn’t referring to the New World Order. That line of yours freaked me out!
        However, after the chaos comes, if the patriotic forces that believes in the Constitution & God wins…we will need to set up safe guards from preventing a secret society from ever gaining so much control over us again.
        There lies the true ROOT of the worlds problem as they obviously have an Agenda that doesn’t have the worlds people’s best interest at heart. This is obvious with chem trails, poisoning our food with GMO, fluoride in our water, lies about wars…etc, etc, etc,.

          Dear BrotherPatriot,

          You write: “I’m hoping your comment about a “new order” isn’t referring to the New World Order.” It was not. It will be a new order based on sound money.

          Best wishes,

          • BrotherPatriot

            Roger that, Mr. Livingston. I didn’t think it was meant that way but wanted clarification. Ty.

          • vicki

            It will be a new order but I do not want to bet on the people setting it up being as smart or religious as the people who set up the US Constitution. We can hope and pray (and try to select people as wise as the founders) but I still am concerned.

        • KG

          Ummm… We ARE in the “new world order”. Why is the latin term “novous odorum secloria” on the obverse of the Great seal of the USA? It’s because by breaking away from G-d’s representatives on earth (churches, priests, royalty, republicans, conservatives) we, America, established a new order of the ages by REJECTING G-d’s representatives and thinking and doing for man’s benefit. One you said “chem trails” you lost all credibility. That is a big hoax perpetrated by really stupid people who want to SCARE you. Just remember what the Bible says about that:

          2nd Timothy 1:7 … “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

          So, if someone is trying to scare you, where does THAT come from?

            Hold up a minute, KG,

            You say “…G-d’s representatives on earth (churches, priests, royalty, republicans, conservatives)…”

            Who said they represent God? Because they say they do? I’m not seeing that in today’s so called “representatives”. In my view most if not all are false teachers and continue to mislead, just as God said they would. God explicitly warns us about them in His Word the Bible.

          • KG

            THEY said they represent G-d. I remember Orel Robberts and Jerry Falwell both saying that “christ will return in my lifetime.” Unfortunately, or fortunately, they both died of old age. So, I have to ask myself, should I put my trust into people who are claiming to be speaking for G-d? Because they seem to be wrong every time.

            It’s not the Gays, it’s not the liberals, it’s not the worldly people that are destroying America, it’s the people who have married religion with politics. It’s conservative policies that have allowed our manufacturing to leave America, not high wages of Unionized employes. It was the entire conservative movement that allowed America to be sucked into two wars that were unnecessary. And its the conservatives who want a huge army to protect them, but do not want to pay for it.

      • speedle24

        Wow KG, you impress as a learned student of history. It seems that you have summoned your great historical perspective, and combined that with your innate power of mathematical logic to come to the conclusion that in a democracy 50% plus of the population calls the shots. I can’t wait for more informative posts from you.

        On the other hand, you might want to consider the possibility that the 51% might decide KG and all who think like KG are enemies of the state, and further decide the best living quarters for you would be the Gulag. But that would be okay with you wouldn’t it? After all, in a “democracy” the government is “us” and is righteous..

        • KG

          I think the fear is on your side. remember the French revolution. That’s what you get when you have too many poor people. You know, guillotines, firing squads, sharp machetes, etc. In that day, the conservatives heads were floating along the left bank.

          • speedle

            Wrong again KG. It wasn’t “Conservative” heads floating in the Left Bank. Rather it was the royal aristocrocy that “euphemistically” invited the poor to eat cake if they had no bread. The equivalent of “royal aristocracy” today is the ruling class elite (read: statists) typified by the Obama administration and his Chicago gangsters. You have a strange sense of equivocation.

          • KG

            I agree with about 80% of what you have to say. It’s just the fact that people like you have allowed this situation to get worse over the last 30 years by selling out our manufacturing base as well as destroying the last chance that working folks can get ahead in America. I’m talking about Labor Unions. If there was a “conservative” who was pro-labor, I might be tempted to go to “the dark side.” However, you guys had to marry politics and religion into an unholy alliance that is threatening to destroy everything that makes America great.

          • Frank Kahn

            Now to take on the misguided Darth Vader of PLD himself.

            Opinions are natural and normal, we all have one, in my opinion your opinion is wrong. In your opinion, everyone that thinks for themselves is wrong.

            The fact that you are wrong can be demonstrated in simple terms. Actually it is the terms you use that proves it. Someone that decides to kill their unborn baby is not PRO-CHOICE. A person that is against abortions is not ANTI-WOMEN. These two labels are misleading, they generalize a movements purposes and thereby create lies. Your side of the aisle wants to claim that a woman has the RIGHT to kill her unborn baby because she is not ready to have one. That is not choice, it is refusal to accept the consequences of her actions. Your side want to claim that people who are against abortion are against women. That is not true, we consider abortion to be murder and are against it.

            So, now we come to your label that has created another lie. PRO-LABOR, by your definition is what? You seem to imply that it means to be for the workers. However, a previous statement in your post indicates that it should really be PRO-LABOR-UNIONS. You are advocating unions not workers so your statement is a lie by implication. You further promote your lie by claiming that conservatives are against your PRO-LABOR idea. This would imply that we are anti-workers. Everyone needs and deserves a job that will give them enough income to survive. Nobody deserves the right to have an income that lets them live lavishly. Unions are geared towards the second not the first. So, I am PRO-WORKER and ANTI-LABOR (by your definition of the term).

            Your opinion gives the fault to the conservatives for our manufacturing base leaving. Well, that might be partially true, however both sides of the aisle have endorsed policies for tax incentives for the move. However, there is another force that has fueled the desire for corporations to leave. It is the cost of production, which is directly tied to the cost of labor, which is directly tied to UNIONS. Since it is more economically sound, for a company, to move its operations to a country where labor is 1/10th the cost it is here, why would they stay? You say it is corporate greed? It is that, but it is also smart business sense. If labor unions insist on extreme salary and benefit packages, combined with outrageous retirement packages, then the company should get rid of them. If the only way to get rid of union interference is to relocate to another country then they must do it.

            Unions, in my opinion, are the primary cause of the loss of jobs in America. It does nobody any good to have unions working for higher wages, if there are no jobs left from which to receive the pay.

          • KG

            Why should American workers compete against people making pennies, while wearing grass skirts? It wasn’t the COST of labor, it was the MAXIMIZING OF PROFITS. In other words, the only beneficiaries of this arrangement was rich, management, and stockholders – NOT THE AMERICAN WORKER. And unions have been telling everybody this for years.

            In other words, what you are saying is American Workers aren’t worth the wages they make – Americans ‘suck’. Oh, yea… you are the idiot wrapped up in the American flag, and yet you would take a dump on them just to make a dollar.

            And you call yourselves “patriots’

  • The Point

    In April there were 20,269,000 total government workers in the U.S. (Local/City/State/Federal)

    Do you realize that out of thousands of towns, hundreds of cities and 50 states (plus territories) that with 2.8 million federal workers, the federal government (which ain’t ‘sposed to do squat according to the constitution) employs 14% of all government workers????

    • KG

      Have you even READ the constitution? What does the preamble say? What does Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 say?

      Article I, Section 8, Clause 3:[3]

      [The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes;

      as well as: section 8, clause 18:

      The Congress shall have Power – To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

      So, when you say ” the federal government (which ain’t ‘sposed to do squat according to the constitution)” you know you are LYING.
      You remind me of the duck that put a book under it’s wing and all the animals thought he was smart. Trouble was, he NEVER READ THE BOOK.

          Romans 13

          King James Version (KJV)

          13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

          2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

          3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

          4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

          5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

          6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

          7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

          8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

            Very good,,,bout time you gave some Scripture to show some “Truth”,,, BUT,,, Romans 13 does NOT stop at verse 8,,,it goes on to verse 14… Notice IN whole,,,Romans 13 says We are to Obey a “Government” THAT IN TURN IS OBEDIENT TO God…
            IS your local government obedient to God or The Bible??
            IS? your state government obedient to God or The Bible?… Also note that a Man that was “Converted” by King Jesus Christ Himself,,, wrote the book of Romans..
            After 3 days blind Paul was baptized with water and the Spirit and healed… See that at Acts 9:1—18,,, and became one the greatest “Warriors” in The Bible,, especially with a pen………………………..
            Do you think Paul would tell anyone to obey a CEG???
            corrupt evil government???
            Also notice at Exodus chapter 1 and chapter 2 the story of Moses’ Mother and the midwives BEING Blessed by God FOR NOT obeying the CEG…
            Meanwhile… Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 IS salvation…

            What kind of government were they under? THE PAGAN ROMAN EMPIRE. And they never said “…rebel against the Romans.” AND as Jews, they were under the law of the TEMPLE. Did they put up Gadson flags and refuse to pay their taxes? Remember, not only did they pay their tax to Rome, but to the temple as well. And they paid a special tax whenever Rome did a census. That’s why Joseph and Mary had to go to Bethlehem – to pay their taxes. If Joseph and Mary were Tea party people, Mary might have gotten an abortion so they could save up for their retirement. And then where would we be?

            Paul caused a stir when he appeared at the Temple, and he escaped being killed by the crowd by being taken into Roman custody. When a plot to kill Paul on his way to an appearance before the Jews was discovered, he was transported by night to Caesarea. He was held as a prisoner there for two years, until a new governor reopened his case in 59. When the governor suggested that he be sent back to Jerusalem for further trial, Paul was constrained to “appeal unto Caesar”, as was his right as a Roman. Now, does that sound like what a “militia” member would do?

            The problem with Modern christanity was pointed out by our President, Mr Obama. He asked the same question that all of mankind has been asking “…am I my brothers keeper?” And when he said that, he was pilloried by the so-called “right wing christian apologists”

            Are you a Judeo Christian ? It reads as you are deeply mind programmed by Judeo Christianty … How many of these rabbit trails you brought up, do you want to track on???
            The original subject was what does Romans 13 say? Well ,,,The Holy Bible teaches many things but The Truth of any Bible subject matter can be proven by “Harmonizing” Scriptures on that subject…………..
            NO where in The Bible does it teach to Obey a CEG,,
            corrupt evil government,,,BUT,,,it does teach to get along with all Men as much as “possible” ,,,BUT,,,it DOES NOT teach to sacrifice “”Truth”” to get along with anybody….
            The Words of God are “Truth”… Notice the First Commandment,,,who is Your God/god??? Your God/god is whom you fear and obey……………….
            To understand Scriptures one has to pay close attention to what it says in contexts as well as word for word,,,BUT,,,one has to pay just as much attention to what it DOES NOT say in Harmony with all other Scriptures … Meanwhile… Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…

            I’m sorry, but theologians have been trying to “harmonize” the Bible for centuries. And, if you are truthful and complete in your research, you will find harmony in the places you WANT to. While there are some themes that wind through the “scriptures”, the truth is Paul’s audience was completely different from Matthew or Mark, or the shepherds that wrote the old testament.
            No, I am not a “Jew for Jesus.” I am a human being walking across the face of the Earth communicating to disembodied people on an electronic device that does magical things. IF the Christ myth is true, then it is, truly, the Greatest Story in the world. Unfortunately, we don’t get to find out for sure until we die. And the truth is we are ALL going to die. So, I could lock myself into a cloistered monastery and die a miserable death, or do what Prince told us to do – “Let’s go Crazy!”

            Thanks for your many words that did NOT answer MY question,,,BUT,,, did expose your mind programming some more,,,OK,,,so We’ll ask more directly a question from The Bible… “Have you accomplished Acts 2:38 with understanding and lawfully as The Bible points out??? Meanwhile… Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…

          • KG

            I know why the Evangelical Christians accept the Catholics. Acts 2:38 is Paul telling his misguided followers about certain works to be performed. But, the question is what do we do for salvation? It is clear from Jesus’ testimony that NOTHING can be done by Man to please G-d.

            Ephesians 2
            8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
            9 Not of works, lest any man should boast

            What did the “thief on the cross” do for salvation?

            Nothing.

            39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
            40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
            41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
            42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

            43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

            And yet, I believe he is in Heaven with Jesus, if the myth is really true. However, most Christians are so into works today, they have completely forgotten the GRACE that believers are supposed to have. Instead, we have vengeful, hateful, jealous and envious “christians” .

            KG,,,
            Just as I suspected , you are a basic “Judeo Christian” at best and have been deeply mind programmed ,brainwashed, by what somebody else said The Bible says… Acts 2:38 was spoken by Peter and is also backed up by what Peter said at 1 Peter 3:21,,AND,,backed up by what King Jesus Christ said at Matthew 16:19… One does not get any higher Authority than Peter had on Planet Earth,,,given by King Jesus Christ… SO? regarding “Salvation” Peter out ranks Paul…
            Most of what you have written is your personal opinion and backed up by NO Scripture……………..
            The Man on the Cross was “saved” by direct Commission ,,,and,,,that is NOT , “”Routine” Salvation..
            Salvation PER The Book IS Acts 2:38… The content
            of Acts 2:38 CAnnot be by passed and become a “Christian” PER The Book,,,routinely speaking …
            Acts 2:38 is the ONLY SINGLE verse in The entire Bible that gives complete salvation IN ONE Single verse… SO? better do some Bible reading… And these Bible Scripture “Harmonizer” are few and far between,,,BUT,,,nitwit nerd heathens that “Think” they know something are a dime a dozen………….

            Why was Jesus baptized? He really had no need to be since he was the Son of God. Even John the Baptist was reluctant to do it. But what did Christ say?

            Matthew 3
            King James Version (KJV)

            13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

            14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

            15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

            16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

            17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

            So I ask you, Whose righteousness was he fulfilling?

            He said “…all righteousness.” Christ was the ONLY righteous person there, so it was NOT for HIS righteousness, but for the righteousness of those to come. He DID IT FOR US SO WE DIDN’T HAVE TOO.
            That’s the real glory of the forgiveness from faith in the COMPLETED WORKS OF JESUS. I do not have to do anything except have faith that HE did it all.

            Where is Christ now? He is sitting on the Right Hand of G-d. HE HAS FINISHED THE WORK. Remember in the temple, there was no chair for the Priest to sit on. In fact, there were bells sewed into his robes so the people could tell he was still moving – NO REST. However, when the veil was torn at the death of Christ, the temple worship ended. That’s why I do not give any money to preachers.

            KG, I agree with God’s command to obey our government, but when the government doesn’t honor God, let alone the people, I think all bets are off. We get what we have asked for. Just like Sodom .

      • The Point

        80% of what the government does falls under the 10th amendment. That which is not specifically defined in the constitution belongs to the states.

        That includes healthcare, retirement, education, energy, transportation beyond what is neccessary for the postal service, etc.

        • KG

          What happens when local government is corrupt or inept? That’s what the 60’s civil rights movement was all about. Local government was failing to protect citizens who were being abused. So, the Federal Government invoked the flexibility clause of the Constitution ( section 8, clause 18). That is what a government “…of the People, By the People, and for the People” is like. Something conservatives have been complaining about since the beginning of the republic.

          • The Point

            Have you ever considered government is always subjected to corruption? What’s the next step considering the federal government is now totally corrupt?

          • KG

            Ok so every human organization is corrupt. So, what to do? Eithey sit and complain about it, or participate and do your best not to get contaminated. I mean, after all, you are so superior in intelect you should be able to thrive in a corrupt environment.

      Of that 2.8 million, how many are either in uniform, or directly support those who are? I am not talking about all the civil uniforms, such as the Homeland Security people, but our military forces. By the time you deduct those, you have taken a rather large bite out of the “federal employee” list. Incidentally, like it or not, those men and women in those uniforms have kept it safe for you to say what you want, when and where you want.

        If you look at United States history since World War II, you find that of the 10 presidents who preceded Barack Obama, seven left office with a debt ratio lower than when they came in. Who were the three exceptions? Ronald Reagan and the two George Bushes. So debt increases that didn’t arise either from war or from extraordinary financial crisis are entirely associated with hard-line conservative governments.

            Sammy,
            I don’t forget that at all, you are correct on the debt. But here is the question that I have for you, how much different would it have been if McCain was elected? You will come back to me with what you think, and I will corner with what I think and there will probably be a difference.

            But, in 2007, the financial world was ending before Obama got elected and that is a fact. Now again, what would McCain have done so differently that we would be so much better off today?
            While we will never know, our debt five years later would be much higher and history proves that statement to be correct. This was the worst financial environment in my life time and there would have been pain no matter which president was involved in the outcome and why I am sure you will not agree with me, but it could have been worse because our country was hanging on by our finger nails to keep from falling into a depression.

        You were told right. The government does not create wealth. Wealth is created despite government interference. You need to do a better job of recognizing sarcasm when you see it. I came to bury Caesar, not to praise him.

    • FreedomFighter

      Maybe not so benevolent.

      At first, personal banking assets were frozen and then they just disappeared. Most Americans were left without the means to pay their mortgage, or to buy food and medicine. Then the rioting and looting began, and martial law was declared. War was simultaneously launched and Iran was attacked which brought Russia and China into the conflict.

      The first stage of the Extermination stage was underway when the bankers, who have seized control over the government, left the entire western half of the nation exposed to invasion. By prior agreement, the Chinese, fully in control of the Panama Canal, began moving north and eventually entered the America’s underbelly in the Southwest. The Russians crossed the Alaskan Land Bridge and decimated Alaska and Northwest Canada.

      In a replay of the SS Nazi death squads entering Russia in 1940, entire geographic areas were targeted for extermination by the conquering hordes. Many in the West and the Northwest were summarily executed by the death squads. Many were rounded up and sent to camps where they worked as slave labor until they were no longer needed and were subsequently eliminated. By prior arrangement, the Chinese and the Russians do not enter into the Eastern two-thirds of the country. The Agenda 21 dream of turning the entire west into a wilderness wasteland was realized.

      In the Eastern two-thirds of the country, the martial law government let the people stay in their homes so long as they deeded their house back to the bank. It became illegal to store more than three days of food and water. Americans were forced to turn in their guns. Any citizen caught with a gun was committing a capital offense and public executions were summarily carried out. Everyone, even the disabled, were assigned to work brigades. Some work brigade duty consisted of going to your regular job. Most work brigade duty consisted of performing work for the government. Food and gas was rationed. A dusk to dawn curfew was instituted. Two separate drafts, a public sector military draft and private sector government/NGO draft, were instituted (i.e. slaves to the corporations). Despite the horror that had become America, your family had somewhat adjusted until the day your six year old repeated something you had said about the “old” American Constitution at school. The teacher reported your family to the Principal, who in turn, filed an electronic “see something-say something” report with the Department of Homeland Security. You were now a target for re-education and that meant being sent to a camp. Yet, your family was totally unaware of what was coming based upon the innocent statement of your child.

      It is 4AM, and an armored personnel carrier, with a “Department of Homeland Security” emblem displayed on the driver’s side door, accompanied by three black canvass covered trucks pulls up in front of you home. A dozen well-armed men quickly exit the vehicle and train their guns on the windows of your home. Another team exits one of the trucks and forms a protective perimeter for the black garbed terrorists surrounding your house. The troops on the perimeter were tasked with arresting anyone of your neighbors who peers out the window or worse yet, might be videotaping the proceedings. These government terrorist events have happened enough times before that most of the people know not to look out their windows when they hear noises in the early morning hours. With the lights off in the house, the parents run to their children’s rooms to make sure they do not look out the window. Your neighbors remain quiet and are just relieved that the wolf has passed by their door one more time.
