Some people believe we can still work within the system to bring about liberty. This is a testament to how far into slavery we've fallen, for we are unable to comprehend how much the State has robbed us of. Is the State just voluntarily going to abolish the Fed, the Military Industrial Complex, the income tax, the mountains upon mountains of tax codes and regulations, the individual and corporate welfare they depend upon? And will the people ever really want to abolish these fascist institutions - will they cave to government fear mongering about the havoc it would create were these institutions to be abolished?
The only way to bring about freedom is to destroy the system that has robbed us of our God-given natural rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, for all of the myriad layers of law, regulation, and bureaucracy only stand to prop up this house of cards. Abolish the Fed, abolish the income tax, and the State would indeed collapse, though the power elite would have you believe this is a bad thing. Why, don't you know how horrible this country was before the State incrementally assumed control of every facet of your lives?
I believe it is fruitless, albeit noble, to fight to abolish these institutions, which would indeed collapse the State, were it to succeed. But with the supply and value of money, the mainstream media, not to mention the majority of Congress, the courts, and the president, under their control, it is hard for me to believe that all of this saber rattling about auditing and abolishing the Fed is anything more than a lot of sound and fury, yet sadly signifying nothing. There are over four hundred congressmen in the House, and only one Ron Paul. How much longer must we suffer, how much are we going to allow them to rob us of, how heavy must our chains lay around our necks, before we realize the system is poisoned and beyond rehabilitation?
We have slowly relinquished nearly all of our liberties, and the Bill of Rights has incrementally been weakened to the point they're more like guidelines than rules, to quote a movie. We are robbed of our wealth by the defacing of our currency - 96% devaluation of the dollar since 1913, the year the Fed was spawned. We are robbed further through pervasive taxation and tolls. And still robbed further through fines and penalties for intrusions on liberty such as speed limits, seat belt and cell phone laws. Yes, the State reserves the right to kill you if you sufficiently resist paying a parking ticket. We are spied upon, harassed, and suspected - the real "suspects" of the terror threat, which our own government fabricated. It is nearly impossible to leave your own home without breaking some kind of law at some point in your daily activities. We are robbed of our best and brightest, sent off to fight wars in far off lands because of lies that serve only to benefit the Military Industrial Complex and the international banking elite who control and loan, at interest, the money needed to wage them. At this point, reforming the State would be analogous to trying to bleach clean a 96 year old bloodstain from of the fabric of this nation.
Jefferson asked, What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?. I know not when the time to take arms against this grotesque leviathan will come, but I know it's only a matter of time. The power elite aren't going to just give us are freedoms back. History bears this out; they never have, they never will. We have always had to fight for them; we have always had to shed our blood, our sweat, our tears, and give our lives for them. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
