Unless you live in a cave in Papua, New Guinea, you’ve been inundated with the story of Washington’s dithering voodoo dance over the debt ceiling. This has been one of the best examples I’ve ever seen of sleight-of-hand by the DC criminals and their accomplices, the Media.
Unfortunately, none of what we’ve all been forced to witness has ANYTHING to do with the cause of this DC-manufactured problem. Simply stated, the Washington criminal political class has been over-spending since Reconstruction. DC has spent money on things clearly not authorized in the US Constitution.
The media have LOVED this story, since it has drama, conflict, winners, losers, a government default, and a cliff-hanger of August 2nd…they could hardly ask for more. The only things it lacks are sex and murder…and truth. Media have spun this story into an intricate web of lies purposefully meant to obscure the simple fact that the Federal Government is bankrupt, and that it cannot continue to spend profligately without borrowing more money to do so.
Am I the only one who has noticed that ALL the DC criminals have stated that in order to honor the obligations ALREADY MADE by Congress and the White House, the debt ceiling has to be raised? That’s saying that Congress has to use more borrowed money to pay what they already owe. Where is the outrage in America? Where are those who are ideologically opposed to allowing DC to borrow more money at all? Only the redoubtable Ron Paul is categorically opposed to more DC debt, and has never once voted in favor of raising the debt ceiling.
Congress is not willing to control spending. They are not willing to make real time cuts in this year’s budget. DC will not…CANNOT…REFUSES TO…live within its means. America does not have a lack of tax money pouring into Washington. It has a Congress with a lack of ability to only spend what it takes in and no more.
Over and over, I heard Congress people say, “We’ve raised the debt limit over 100 times over the past 25 years. Why is it a big deal THIS time?” Perhaps because there is a point at which the whole system falls apart, and Washington may have now reached that point.
The President and Congress have now agreed to “borrow” a couple trillion more dollars. Now think about this, friends. The Chinese already own about $1 trillion of our debt. Only a handful of nations of the world have economic output of $1 trillion per year. So who is going to buy all of this Treasury paper? I submit to you that most of the debt will be funded by the Federal Reserve by running the printing presses and “monetizing” the debt with new paper money created out of thin air. This will hasten the collapse of the dollar into Zimbabwe-like currency, and return the United States to a 19th-century lifestyle.
Think about the Titanic. What sank the vessel? Striking the iceberg did not sink the ship. The ship sank because the crew was unable to stop the water from coming into the ship. No ship can remain afloat when the weight of the water it displaces is exceeded by the weight of the ship and its cargo. And why did 1,517 people die in the chilly waters of the North Atlantic? Because the owners of the ship had not provided enough lifeboats to carry the 2,223 people on board. Those people believed in the “unsinkability” of that ship. It was too big to fail.
But the crew in Washington is not incapable. They are UNWILLING to stop the spending from flooding the ship of state. The crew members who would like to prevent the ship from sinking are incapable of gathering enough support to slash spending in any current fiscal year. And there are some crewmembers who are assisting pirates in looting the ship while it is sinking. All “spending cuts” are proposed for future years, and every Congressman knows that they are also incapable of forcing the next Congress to follow prior dictates. And millions of Americans who believe in the unsinkability of Washington will suffer a similar fatal fate as the passengers on the Titanic. Washington is not too big to fail. It deserves to be thrown on the ashheap of history with Roman Empire and other nations that have blissfully ignored Natural Law.
I’m not real big on quoting Scripture, but here’s a verse that fits this article well: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
To say that God is not mocked is to say that Natural law will always triumph. You can ignore it for a while. You can fight against it for a time. You can sneer at it, show contempt for it, say it’s antiquated and ridicule it. But it will always triumph because it is universal, designed into the system.
The Federal Government of the United States of America has committed fraud on the entire population of the world. The FedGov stopped using real money in transactions, and resorted to using paper currency, and then devalued that currency. That’s theft by conversion. Washington promoted Fractional Reserve Banking, which is counterfeiting by another name. DC has sent its military around the world to kill innocent people. That is First Degree Murder. DC stopped protecting individual liberty and property rights long ago, thereby vacating its very mandate for existence.
Fraud, theft, counterfeiting, murder and tyranny are the seeds that Washington has sown. And by extension, the people of the USA are just as culpable for the seeds that have been sown as the politicians they elected. Natural law guarantees that eventually, these seeds will yield a harvest. That harvest now stands ripening in the fields, awaiting the looming harvest season.
It is the natural law of sowing and reaping that will bring down Washington, and turn America into a Third-World nation. Clearly, reform from within can never occur prior to The End Of The World As We Know It.
So my point is that all you will see will be bullshit until just ONE STATE SECEDES.
There is no external or internal force that I know of that will be sufficient to cause a return to the Constitution in America. There is only one event that can or will occur that will force Washington to stop spending. And in my opinion, that will not happen until after the economy and the dollar collapse.
That event is Secession. One state has to start the ball rolling.
Secession is the Hope For Mankind. Who will be first?
