    Quere as a three dollar bill.

    You can have your own defaced two dollar bill with the author of the Declaration covered up for only twenty bucks. They're charging almost as much for it as it was worth before Trump tripled the money supply and set all this recent inflation in motion.

    Notice the Fed seal is not only carefully preserved, but Trump signed off on it.

    Pic tax:

    They did pay bribes to the "barbarians"... in some cases to keep them at bay, in other cases to serve in the legions, and in others to prevent them from sacking and looting Roman cities. It didn't work, obviously, because eventually the Goths,Visigoths, Franks, realized that Rome had become weak, morally and militarily. So instead of taking the bribes, they drove into the Empire and slowly but surely consumed it.

    I can't remember who or when it was exactly, but at some point in the Late Empire, a barbarian ended up Emperor.

    Thus always to Empires, it seems.

    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere." - Voltaire
