Conservative or Liberal: Pick Your Poison

Human nature and history teach us that political labels are used to influence society to accomplish a certain political end. Many times, words used to describe original principles are somehow conquered or hijacked and then proclaimed to be a part of those original principles, but are realistically far from them. As I was growing up, I remember thinking this: “‘liberal’ equals bad and ‘conservative’ equals good.” “Conservative” was proposed to be a word purely describing the principles believed and proclaimed by America’s founding fathers. “Liberal” was proposed to describe those whose only goal was to bring Americans under the control and dominion of the federal government. As it turns out, these words and descriptions were not only misleading and narrow-minded in their application, but they were also incorrect in their origin. Today, neither “conservative” nor “liberal” accurately describe the philosophy and principles they purport to advocate. Consequently, freedom suffers because of America’s ignorance of and infatuation with these labels, contrary to George Washington’s warning of this very tragedy.

Abolish The Federal Reserve Bank!

Most people don’t realize there is one element that all tyrannical governments need to expand their empire.  That element is crucial for controlling the population and adding a hidden form of taxation called inflation.

Central banking is one of the most evil systems mankind has ever created.  Giving a monopoly the power to print money and control the economy puts us all at financial risk and makes us indentured servants to the money masters (central bankers).  It also is the source of the uncontrolled spending of the federal government.  You would not have a welfare/warfare/police state if you did not have an unlimited supply of money the government could borrow.
