"Ron Paul, The Federal Reserve, JFK and M3: Devaluing Americans into Bankruptcy"
The Comptroller General of the United States, formerly known as the General Accounting Office, which is “a legislative branch agency founded by Congress in 1921 to ensure the accountability of the federal government”, in their latest audit of the federal debt have revealed that “deficit spending and promised benefits for federal entitlement programs have put every man, woman, and child in the United States on the hook for $175,000”. This is exclusive of the personal debt that each person may carry.
This means that every newborn in the United States of America has $175,000 of debt that they are responsible for before they take their first breath. This also means that every person that takes his or her last breath in the United States dies with at least $175,000 of debt.
Since debt slavery came into effect by the passing of the Bankruptcy Bill, this basically means that everyone in the United States is essentially a slave to the banking institutions since interest continues to accumulate on this debt. Now that personal debts are no longer cleared upon declaring bankruptcy, almost every person in the United States will die a slave.
How did the United States economy become so devastated and the populace so indebted? The Federal Reserve and the Military-industrial complex have most of the answers. The American lifestyle has the rest.
The simplest remedy to the American financial crisis is to change the American lifestyle from “the person(s) who accumulate the most possessions ‘win’ the game” to the person(s) who accumulate the most amount of goodwill ‘win’ the game. The reason that this has to happen is because “the carrying capacity of the planet will not continue to support” the American lifestyle. It is unsustainable, both economically and environmentally.
The second remedy is to eliminate the Military-industrial complex. “USA is responsible for 48 per cent” of the world’s total military spending, consuming over 41% of “US tax payer’s money”, not including hidden costs. When a country spends almost half its income of warfare, then it is doomed to economic oblivion and every other public priority, from healthcare to education and community development to social programs must be cut.

The most important cure for what ails the US economy is to dismantle The Federal Reserve: A private banking institution headed by private individuals who represent conglomerate and the financial elite who act as “fiscal agents for the U.S. Treasury”. They decide how much money is in circulation, they print it, sell it to the United States Federal Government who in turn distributes it to the American people. In return they get all the interest, paid for with American taxes.
If you think this is absurd then you are not alone. John F. Kennedy tried to dismantle The Federal Reserve before he was assassinated, and more recently, presidential hopeful Ron Paul had a few choice words for Ben Bernanke, the current Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
How large is the economic crisis that has hit the United States? With the discontinuance of M3 and the apparent flooding of US dollars into the economy by creating money "Out of Thin Air", the US currency has been devalued to the point where “central banks and finance ministries (of other countries) are setting up obstacles to keep the falling dollar from threatening company profits and economic growth.” The ultimate question is, how long are other countries going to be able to keep the American economy from collapsing in on itself, specially since there is talk of a worst recession then the 1930s?
2008 should be a very interesting year.
