The De Facto Slavery of the American People

Enslavement will not come with a bang, but with a slow, relentless whimper. Each day, each week, each month, each year brings us closer to a state of de facto slavery as a result of greed disguised as "civil rights."

Ask most Americans and they will tell you that food, clothing, shelter and other necessities are "rights." Surely, they are necessities, but they are not rights that need to be provided by an omnipotent government.

that's what they want you to do, so while you are distracted they can keep slipping in measures to take away your liberties.

If we are slaves Fred who be the masters, hmm? If you say the government, you're incorrect. Here's a history lesson for you:

1775: the American Revolutionary War began. American sought to detach from England and its oppressive monarchy. Though many reasons are cited for the Revolution, one in particular sticks out as the prime cause: that King George III of England outlawed the interest free, independent currency the Colonies were producing and using for themselves, in turn forcing them to borrow money from the central “Bank of England”, at interest, immediately putting the Colonies into debt, and as Benjamin Franklin later wrote:

“The refusal of King George III to allow the Colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the Revolution.”

In 1783 America won its Independence from England, however its battle with the central bank concept, and the corrupt, greed filled men associated with it, had just begun.

So, what is a central bank? A central bank is an institution that produces the currency of an entire nation. Based on historical precedent, two specific powers are inherent in central banking practice: the control of interest rates, and the control of the money supply or inflation.
The central bank does not simply supply the government’s economy with money, it “loans” it to them, at interest, then through the use of increasing and decreasing the supply of money, the central bank regulates the value of the currency being issued.

It is critical to understand, that the entire structure of this system can only produce one thing in the long run: DEBT! It doesn’t take a lot of brains to figure this scam out: for every single dollar produced by the central bank is loaned at interest. That means every single dollar produced is actually the dollar plus a certain percentage of debt based on that dollar. Since the central bank has the monopoly over the production of the currency for the entire country, and may loan each dollar out with immediate debt attached to it, where does the money to pay for the debt come from? It can only come from the central bank again, which means the central bank has to perpetually increase its money supply to temporarily cover the outstanding debt created, which in turn, since that new money is loaned out at interest as well, creates even MORE DEBT!

The end result of this system, without fail is SLAVERY, for it is impossible for the government and thus its citizens, to ever come out of the SELF GENERATING DEBT!

The Founding Fathers were well aware of this: “If the American People ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency…the corporations, that will grow up around them will deprive them of their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”—Thomas Jefferson US President 1743-1826

“If you want remain slaves of the bankers and pay for the costs of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and control the nations credit.”—Sir Josiah Stamp, head of the Bank of England, 1880-1941

In the United States we have had such a bank since 1913. The Federal Reserve Incorporated. This is not a government agency. It is a private bank owned by several member banks, and it operates for a profit to its stockholders, 70% of whom are EUROPEAN! Only 30% of its owners are even American.

The FED owns this place until we shut it down. Support HR 1207 Audit the FED bill.

In Liberty,

Do any of your co-horts have an original thought? Where were you years ago when many Americans were complaining about the welfare system that forced men to leave their homes so that their children could eat? Ever see the movie 'Claudine'? It took years of working with 'some' legislators to change a failing 'welfare' system. However - the old system did help to keep a certain element of our society in a situation that was very similar to 'slavery'.
Some credit card companies are realizing that the 'gig' is up - and freeing their 'clients'/'slaves' from their ridiculously high interest rates. After 150+ days, we're beginning to see relief. There are issues that should be challenged by the Republicans/conservatives - but some of you are still trying to appeal to those who are too insecure and frightened of 'change' or the loss of power to become seriously involved in intelligent/constructive challenge.

Gee, DBM, where does one begin?

You talk as if all 'change' is good. Barack's vision for turning America into a communist/marxist utopia is the type of change that will destroy our freedoms as Americans.

Here we have a 'president' who completely disregards the rule of law while a complicit media and congress stand idly by and say absolutely nothing. He gave away what rightfully belonged to creditors of GM and Chrysler to his constituents at UAW which was AGAINST THE LAW.

He fired an inspector general that was investigating some of barack's compadres in some Community Service organization because the inspector was getting too close to home for ol' barry.

He states that he will not raise taxes on folks making
