U.S. must find its way back to capitalism



Why were Americans never poor until the 20th century?

Their system approached capitalism and even through war they were able to rid themselves of a central bank soon afterwards. The central bank in the modern U.S. began in 1912.

That turned the U.S. into rule by the wealthy.

This system is very similar to rule by royals. The Bank of England has been impoverishing those subjects since 1689.

So the real ignorance that impoverishes? That is the ignorance of a powerful central bank. The people must realize their wealth is hurt by inflated currencies.

The toilers have become labor slaves to the exploiters. And as 1929 and 2008 have proven, the rug can be pulled out anytime the exploiters want.

A return to capitalism and a Jeffersonian Republic is needed. I will send a copy of a book by Congressman C.A. Lindbergh (father of the pilot) by attachment on a reply to your email. The book is “Why Are We at War” and it is in the public domain. For the attachment email EdGluck2@yahoo.com. Congressman Lindbergh explains that we fell into rule by the wealthy forcing us into war and by changing the economic system back to capitalism the U.S. can lead the world in avoiding war.

Half-truths, lack of control plague society

I do not think it will make much difference which one won the election. They both owe their soul to the company store and the American people do not own the store.

We could if we would just wake up and quit thinking of only ourselves and what we want not what we need.

We seem to think we need to have equal rights and be able to act as we please and if it is not one set of rights, it’s another. We only have one set of rights, and that is to love ourselves and treat all others with love and respect. If we use the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer everywhere, we would have a greater land.

Every time the government gets to making laws that are to help us, you better look out, for our laws are not there for us. They are half-truths to give government the right to do as they please. We have no control over anything even our own bodies.

We have been told so many times that this is what we should have. We are brainwashed. Wake up and live. Only you and others can change tomorrow if you just remember things do not make a good and free world. It’s free people.

This is the season to be thankful. It’s not Santa’s birthday. It is the birthday of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Remember that when you see all the charities and ads to buy this and that. They say if you are living, you really, really need this or help that.

Check into the charity and see how much really goes to the things they say it does. Also, see the salaries paid and how many. If they really do give most of your donation to help people who really need heat, water, clothing and food to make it through the cold winter months, not just toys that are put outside or left behind or sold.

Remember a smile is just as important in January, February and March. And so is the feeling you have as a friend.
