View Full Version : Lao Tzu's Principle for Promotion: Using your enemies strength against him

The Federal Reserve Note is kept in almost all American homes and wallets today. It is symbolic of the reach of the "money changers" and their current method of assult called "the Federal Reserve System."

Lao Tzu in "The Art of War" talks about using your opponents strengths against him. This ancient text has served armies well for centuries and it may help the Ron Paul Revolution.

Would anyone object to the idea of purchasing a custom rubber stamp with the tag line "End the Fed" and stamping every federal reserve note that we encounter? It doesn't have to be a large stamp (1/2" by 1"), just enough to raise some eyebrows. Hopefully pushing the "End the Fed" movement to critical mass (commenly referred to as the "tipping point").

If you say "well, that is illegal to deface a Federal Reserve Note" then I would respond that the Federal Reserve Note is the product of an immoral/unconstitutional system, and therefore, I dont mind breaking that law.

I would also prefert to print "watch: America, Freedom to Faciscm" to call attention to Arron Russo's brillient documentary highlighting the Federal Reserve System, Federal Income Tax, Patriot Act and other issues that Dr. Paul fights for.

You have to remember that the fed is only a small part of the overall larger problem as your handle implies. Our culture of mass consumption to have more and more and bigger and better at any cost. Look at the way americans, are willing to trample one another to get that hot Christmas item? We glorify violence in film and song then cry when it shows up on our door step.We want the government out of our lifes right after they find us a job. Ron Paul might be able to fix the system but we have to fix us.

The Art of War was written by Sun Tzu not Lao Tzu

Better yet and much more of a message is to go to your nearest FedRes bank and ask to exchange your FedRes notes for U.S. Notes. They are by law required to hold these U.S. Notes for redemption purposes. You then are clearly showing that use of private credit is voluntary and you want public money. It also transfers that much debt off the back of the people and onto the books of the FedRes, who have to balance them. Convert 10K FedRes denominations into 10K USD U.S. Notes and the debt goes down by 10K USD and the FedRes then has to pony up 10K to cover itself.

Hell..stamp end the fed in red on the fiat before you exchange it for public money.

I hate to say it, but stamping "End the Fed" is illegal.


You'll be "defacing" currency is illegal

The U.S. Treasury Department's Bureau of Engraving and Printing in a document on their Website says:

Defacement of currency is a violation of Title 18, Section 333 of the United States Code. Under this provision, currency defacement is generally defined as follows: Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined not more than $100 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

Defacement of currency in such a way that it is made unfit for circulation comes under the jurisdiction of the United States Secret Service.

btw the Art of War was written by Sun Tzu.
