I don't know. It just seems like a lot of Americans are lost in some form of collective disconnect. And it's not just the tech addicted generation. It's everywhere. It's everybody. People don't 'think'. They generally accept whatever is told to them. They grab on to some piece of ideology and simply won't let go. Years ago it was the belief the world was flat. For centuries this was the accepted construct of the physical realm of God. The earth was the center of the universe, and that was that. But now we know the earth is an infinitesimally small dot in an ever expanding universe where the nearest star is 10,000 years away by jet. Truth...gives one a different view of things.Wouldn't you agree?
Here is some truth.
Before 1968, our government had to balance the budget. Money going out had to not exceed money coming in. I know this is a simplified version, fine, okay. But I'm just trying to make a point. I'm not an accountant or bean counter. But in 1968 Nixon and others took us off the 'gold' standard. I am no economist, but I understand that essentially the Federal Reserve could thus just start printing worthless money. And they did.
The ONLY value is the added interest on these government issued debentures. In other words, you give me 100 dollars of real money, and I'll pay you back 110 dollars of real money in the future. But that's not exactly what happened. The future kept arriving at the Federal Reserve Bank's door...and wanted to be paid. So the FRB just printed more paper promissory notes. lol. And this cycle just kept repeating. Repeating to the cost of 14 trillion fake dollars. So now, in 2012, the very existence of the American way of life is at risk. Why? Because all those people/countries who purchased those government debentures are realizing the USA is just a Ponzi scheme. Yes, a criminal enterprise whereby you pay old customers with new customers money. And NO REAL value exist. This is the absolute truth.
In last nights RNC not a word was mentioned about the financial cliff around the corner. As usual it was smoothed over with sweet talk. "Time to balance the budget". Really? Excuse the foul language, but the shit is about to hit the fan. INFLATION is coming back with a vengeance .
