What follows are the views of this old gringo living on the shore of what Castro and Chavez call the Sea of Happiness. I claim no special insight nor do I have any special information that others do not. If I tend to ramble a bit today, I hope you will forgive me. To borrow a phrase from nancy Pelosi, we’ll have to wait for the finished product to know what is in it.
Who are the Enemies of Freedom
The enemies of freedom are, in my opinion, the richest most powerful families in the world. You have all heard of groups like the Trilateral Commission, th Bilderbergs and, the Council on Foreign Relations. Now, whether you or I buy into the conspiracy theories about these groups or not, it is important to understand that these groups are very real. They are in deed run by the richest most powerful people on the planet. Many important people are invited to their meetings who are not even close to the inner circle of power. But, many of these people do seem to end up as presidents or prime ministers of the major Western nations.
Who are in the inner circle? Well, we hear names like the Rothschild family ,, the Rockefeller family, the Goldman Sachs people and others. They are what I call the Financial & Political Elite (F&PE) .Who they are is not important for the purposes of todays discussion. What is important is know that there are a relatively small handful of people who control enormous wealth and power at the very head of these organizations.
What goes on in their secret meetings? Are they conspiring to take over the world? No, I don’t believe they want to take over the world because they already have control of the world, more or less. And, they have had this control for a very long time. So, what does go on in these secret meetings? I don’t know but you can bet they are not trying to figure out how to make life better the common Joe. Those at the top are using the lower rungs to help how them figure out how best to perpetuate their wealth and power into the future.
I don’t see them as having any particular political ideology. They have over the years supported dictators, communist regimes and even the United States. Their influence in these governments is only to manipulate wealth production in a way that increases their own wealth and power. They have supported empires big and small. When the wealth generation of a given empire begins to wane, they worry not a bit, instead they look to next growth empire and start the game all over again.
My view is that Marxism and socialism are only tools they use for their own ends. I think it is obvious that their lives would be greatly simplified if there was a one world order with one currency and one government. They will use organizations like the IMF and the UN to facilitate their long-term goal of a one world oligarchy. Mean while they will be content with dealing with and manipulating multiple oligarchies.
Again, in my opinion, I don’t think they care one way or the other about our individual freedoms. Oligarchies is how they can maximize their wealth and power and inherent in the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few is the lost of freedom of the masses.
I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture of who the enemy of freedom is.
Who are the Defenders of Freedom
This where it gets really scary. In all the world, the only defenders of freedom that I can see are the Conservatives and the Libertarians of these United States. We can look for no help from Europe or anywhere else, in my opinion. It is truly a David and Goliath situation.
So, do we Davids have a chance against F&PE Goliaths? Yes, I do think we have a chance, all be it a small chance. I believe that the F&PE Galiath does have an Achilles’ heel and our task is to exploit it. Much, if not all, of the power of the Financial Elite, the banksters, who are the senior partner of the F&PE, comes from the worlds use, since 1971, of fiat money.
Yesterday, I took Congressman Ron Paul to task for a vote he made in Congress recently. Today I am telling you that Ron Paul is maybe the only one in Washington that understands where the power of the F&PE comes from. He is the lone wolf challenging the Fed and the only one promoting that our currency should be tied to gold or some combination of commodities.
Going back to real money would destroy the banksters and the F&PE. What I am saying, folks, is that conservatives better wake-up and start listening to what Dr. Ron Paul has to say about the federal Reserve and fiat money. The only way to defeat the F&PE (the banksters in particular) is to break their control over money. The Austrian economic policies preached by Ron Paul are the only way to defend freedom. Stripping the Fed of its ability to create money out of thin air and returning to a system that uses real money will, also, restrain our government from expanding through the power of unlimited credit.
We can win elections and try to reduce the size of government and put our economic house in order; but, if we don’t follow the lead of Ron Paul on the issues of the Fed and money, the banksters and the F&PE will eventually have their way with us and we will lose our freedoms for sure. At least that is how this old gringo on the shore of the Sea of Happiness sees things.
Well, that is what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
