Introduction
In this book you will read about some things you already knew – or at
least suspected. Also, you will learn some things you never
suspected. I’m sure it’s no surprise to you if I tell you that things are
not always what they seem to be. There are people and
organizations that go to a lot of trouble to keep you in the dark and to
use you for their gain. I’m going to be telling you about a few of these
people and organizations. I’m also going to teach you how to help us
turn things around.

All my life I’ve heard America referred to as the “land of the free” but I
fear that will not always be the case. I see things happening that
make me very concerned.

The United States government and our police forces are getting more
and more aggressive when it comes to arresting people for reasons
of “national security.” Our rights are of no consequence. Anything
goes now, all they have to say is that it’s a matter of national security
and that supposedly justifies anything and everything.

Don’t get me wrong; I do understand that we live in a different world


since 9/11. I’m well aware of that. As a matter of fact it’s that
“different world” that concerns me. I’m scared that this “different
world” has not only changed our great nation but it’s also changed us,
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

and not in a good way. I believe we are tolerating too much, and we
are afraid to stand up to the powers that be. We’ve seen too many
cases where people have been taken into custody and locked up
without being formally charged, and they are held indefinitely without
assess to an attorney. That is not the America I love. That is
fascism, and I hate it.

Considering all the above, there are a few things I believe every
American needs to know. We need to wake up in America and do
all we can to save our great nation – and I’m not talking about
saving it from the foreign terrorists, I’m talking about saving it
from the politicians, the bankers and the big business tycoons.
They are the real threat and they are just as ruthless.

Fact # 1

The Government Is Not Your Friend

One thing I want to make perfectly clear is that the United States
government is not your friend. I hope that does not offend or shock
anyone. I’m thinking that many of you said “well duh” after reading
that. I want every American to be well informed about this point. If
we are under the impression that the government is our friend then
we will be expecting it to be making decisions and doing things that
will actually be for our good – and then we will get disappointed.

Just in case you are under the impression that Uncle Sam is crazy
about you and wants to help you I will give a little evidence to back up
my claim. I hope it will then be crystal clear to everyone who reads
this.

First of all, let’s consider the income tax. Do you think it’s fair? Of
course it isn’t; it is too much of a burden on the poor and does not
take enough taxes out on the rich. If you are rich I suppose you may
take issue with that, but otherwise I believe you will agree. If ole
Uncle Sam was our friend he would not treat us like that, now would
he?

How about the way the politicians spend our money? Does the term
“bailout” ring a bell? At the time of this writing (summer of 2009) we
are already into the trillions of dollars spent on bailouts. Trillion is a
word I have a hard time wrapping my brain around. That’s a lot of
zeroes. I can assure you that a true friend would not use trillions of
my dollars without consulting me and getting my permission
(assuming I had trillions of dollars).

How about the way they keep infringing on our rights? That certainly
isn’t very friendly, now is it? As long as they use the words “national
security” they seem to think they can do anything, at any time, to
anyone – no questions asked.

4
How about the Constitution? Our forefathers made it very special so
we can keep our government working smoothly, and to make sure
our rights are protected. It doesn’t get much attention these days –
except when the big attorneys look for ways to get around it, or
reinterpret it in a way that totally changes the original intent of its
authors. A friendly government would have more respect for our
Constitution, in my humble opinion.

Let’s not forget the way they keep printing money that has no real
value, and making the dollar virtually worthless. I can recall a time
when every cent had to be backed with real gold. Not so anymore;
it’s just paper, and more paper can always be made, and any
denomination can be printed on it. If you or I did that we would be
arrested and prosecuted for counterfeiting. How come it’s all right for
ole Uncle Sam to do it anytime he pleases?

I guess I should also mention the unfriendly way our government is


always meddling in the affairs of other countries and causing them to
hate us. They call us names like “imperialists” and “the great Satan.”
Our politicians like to tell us the people in other countries hate us
because we stand for freedom and democracy, but I’m not buying
that. They hate us because we try to control everything we can, and
set up puppet governments abroad. We need to mind our own
business and take care of our own people. We have people starving
in America, and all those hundreds of billions we are spending on our
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

wars could have been spent to help our own citizens. What a radical
thought – actually helping our own!

I could go on and on about the unfriendliness of our government, but I


think everyone gets the picture. Is it any wonder there are tea parties
cropping up all over America? Is it any surprise that the citizens of
our great nation are slowly waking up and smelling the coffee? Yes,
we have been complacent in America. Yes, we have allowed far too
much for way too long, but we are starting to come around. We are
beginning to unite in small groups all across America. We are
starting to say with a great deal of enthusiasm, “I’m not going to
take it anymore.” I hope you are either at that point, or getting close
to that point. You are needed.

Fact # 2

The Government Is Far Too Big

Our government is far too big. It needs to shrink considerably. The


bigger it gets the more power it has over us, and I’m thinking you will
agree with me when I say that Uncle Sam already has far too much
power. He controls way too much and needs to learn that the world
is not supposed to revolve around him.

Below is a quote from www.DownsizeDC.org.

We believe the federal government has grown too centralized, too intrusive,
and too expensive. We believe in constitutional limits, smaller government,
civil liberties, federalism, and low taxes. We want to end laws and programs
that don't work, cause harm, and violate the Constitution. We want to
restore the full force of the 9th and 10th amendments, which reserve most
social functions to the people and the states.

That sounds good, doesn’t it? After all, the government should not be
allowed to control every area of our lives. Nor should it pretend it has
a right to poke its nose in everything that goes on. Did you ever stop
to consider the purpose of government? I did some research online
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

to try and find out what exactly the government is supposed to do. It
didn’t take me long to realize that it depends on who you ask. You
want ten different answers? All you have to do is ask ten people.
Personally I like the view of the ancient Greeks. They said that
government has only one purpose, to improve the lives of citizens.
Wow, isn’t that a great concept? Let me highlight that for emphasis.

“The government has only one purpose, to


improve the lives of citizens.”

Facts About Big Government

* Big Government takes about $4.8 trillion from Americans in taxes


every year. Almost half of every dollar you earn goes to federal, state,
and local governments. Imagine that, almost half of your income
goes to taxes. Are you okay with that?

* Big Government sometimes seizes the assets of Americans directly


by eminent domain, victimless crime seizure laws, and frivolous
government lawsuits. Are you okay with that?

* Big Government prints money at will – money that is not backed up


by gold, silver or anything else. It’s just paper, and each dollar they
print they decrease the value of the dollar. Are you okay with that?

* Big Government puts restrictions on many things you like to do, or


need to do. This diminishes your ability to enjoy life. Are you okay
with that?

* Big Government produces a lot of regulations, which lead to high


prices for housing, food, utilities, medical care, insurance, and just
about everything you need. Are you okay with that?

I could go on and on about big government, but surely you get the
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

point. What if we had a smaller government?

* Small Government would mean fewer taxes.

* Small Government would not need to seize our property.

* Small Government would not need to print out worthless money.

* Small Government would not put so many restrictions on us, nor


would they make as many regulations and new laws.

“Vote for candidates that promote


downsizing our government.”

Fact # 3

The Federal Reserve Is Corrupt

On January 6, 1907 the New York Times published an article by a


wealthy banker by the name of Paul Warburg. It was called "Defects
and Needs of Our Banking System.” Later on that year a financial
crisis occurred. It came to be called The Panic of 1907 or the 1907
Banker’s Panic. The New York Stock Exchange fell close to 50%
from its peak the previous year. Since this was a time of economic
recession the panic was widespread. There were numerous runs on
banks and trust companies. All over the nation many state and local
banks and businesses went bankrupt. Obviously Mr. Warburg was
right in saying there was defects in the system. Or was he?

Rumors have circulated since that time that a good friend of Paul
Warburg, a wealthy banker by the name of J.P. Morgan, actually
helped to cause that financial crisis in order to set the stage for a plan
they had to start a central bank. History records, however, that Mr.
Morgan made a lot of deals at that time (and influenced a lot of
wealthy people to make investments on the spur of the moment) that
actually saved the nation from total financial collapse. Perhaps this
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

helped people to have confidence in him. It wouldn’t be the first time


someone caused a problem in secret so they could solve it in public
to become a hero of the people. Mr. Morgan did become a hero after
it was over. Some folks even referred to him as a savior.

The plans of Warburg and Morgan to start a central bank came to life
a few years later. In 1910 there was a secret meeting at Jekyll Island,
Georgia - a private resort for the super rich. In fact it was owned by a
group of millionaires. There were seven rich and influential men in
attendance at that private conference. They were…

8
Republican Senator Nelson Aldrich (and his secretary Arthur Shelton)
Dr. Abraham Piatt Andrew (Assistant Secretary of the United States
Treasury)
Frank A. Vanderlip (president of National City Bank)
Paul M. Warburg (wealthy banker - partner in Kuhn, Loeb &
Company)
Henry P. Davison (senior partner of J.P. Morgan Company)
Charles D. Norton (president of First National Bank Of New York)
Benjamin Strong (Vice President of Banker’s Trust of New York)

These men spent nine days hidden away on the island to plan their
strategy. Supposedly the true architect of what later came to be
called the Federal Reserve was Paul Warburg. His plan was to make
the whole thing a charade. He knew the American public did not
want a central bank due to the fact that several economies in Europe
failed because of central banks. Also, shortly after the United States
gained its freedom from England, the Rothschilds formed a private
central bank called The First Bank Of The United States. President
Andrew Jackson eventually abolished it with these words:

“The bold effort the present bank has made to control the government, the
distress it had wantonly produced...are but premonitions of the fate that
awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of
this institution or the establishment of another like it.”
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

A few years later a Second Bank Of The United States was formed.
By the early 1830s, President Jackson had come to thoroughly dislike
it because of its fraud and corruption. After investigating the bank
thoroughly Jackson concluded “beyond question that this great and
powerful institution had been actively engaged in attempting to
influence the elections of the public officers by means of its money.”

So Warburg came up with the idea to make a system of twelve


regional banks of which the main bank in New York, where most of
the money would be kept, controlled all. Even though it would, in
effect, be a central bank, it would appear to be twelve regional
institutions. Surely the American public could be fooled.

9
The idea was eventually presented to then president-elect Woodrow
Wilson in early 1912. At first he did not like the idea, but eventually
came around. After the bill authorizing the formation of The Fed
cleared the Senate and the House of Representatives President
Wilson immediately signed the Federal Reserve Act into law on
December 23, 1913. On October 25, 1914, the formal establishment
of the Federal Reserve System was announced, and it began
operating in 1915.

The control of the economy of the United States was then put in the
hands of the private bankers, a decision President Wilson lived to
regret. In 1919 he said the following:

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great


industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is
concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are
in the hands of a few men.”

So we know that way back in 1919 the president of the United States
confessed that he had messed up and gave our country to the
bankers. It would have been nice if President Wilson had listened to
the words of Thomas Jefferson who said in 1802…

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than
standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and
corporations that will grow up around them [the banks] will deprive the
people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent
their fathers conquered."

It seems Mr. Jefferson knew what he was talking about. Many people
have had their property taken by the banks when they could not make
the payments that the banks told them they had to make. Many more
have become homeless because the bank took all their money and
left them with nothing.

So now we know how The Fed came into existence. We see that five
bankers, an economist and a US Senator designed it. Now let’s look
and see if The Fed has helped our economy.

Recessions And Depressions In America Since

The Federal Reserve Began

* Great Depression - 1929 to late 1930s, the stock market crashed,


banks collapsed.

* Downturn in the economy 1937–1938.

* 1973 Oil Crisis – stagflation in the US due to an oil embargo by


OPEC coupled with high government spending due to the Vietnam
War.

* 1979 - 1980 energy crisis - the Iranian Revolution sharply increases


the price of oil.

* 1987 to early 1990s – recession brought on by collapse of junk


bonds and a sharp stock crash in the United States.

* 2000 to 2003 recession - the collapse of the Dot Com Bubble


contributes to a relatively mild contraction in the North American
economy.

* 2008 to present – banks and businesses have failed, many have


lost homes and jobs. Huge government bailouts to prevent a national
monetary collapse.

Note: All dates are approximate.

Below are listed a few things The Fed is supposed to be doing for us. You can
decide for yourself how they are doing.

* To maintain the stability of the financial system.

* To strengthen U.S. standing in the world economy.

* To supervise and regulate banking institutions.

The bottom line to all that has been said about the Federal Reserve System is this…

“We Don’t Need The Federal Reserve System”

Fact # 4
The Constitution Is Important

Everyone needs to know a few basic things about our constitution. If


you find this information to be interesting perhaps you may want to
actually read the entire document yourself. I do recommend that,
by the way.

Here Are The Basics

The Constitution begins with a preamble.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more


perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare,
and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our
Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the
United States of America.
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

The United States Constitution is the highest law in the land. All of
our laws come from the Constitution. It dictates how the government
works. It tells how we elect the President and establishes term limits
for that office. It dictates how we elect members of Congress. It
creates the Supreme Court. Each state also has a constitution. The
constitutions of the states are their highest law for that state — but
the United States Constitution is higher.

Changes can be made to The Constitution by amendments.


Presently there are 27 amendments.

12
Here are some facts you may find interesting.

* Originally only white men were allowed to vote in elections. It


wasn’t until the fifteenth amendment was ratified in 1870 that non-
whites were given the right to vote. Women were given the right fifty
years later in 1920 when the nineteenth amendment was ratified.

* Since its creation over one hundred countries around the world
have used the United States Constitution as a model for their own.

* The oldest person to sign the Constitution was Benjamin Franklin


(81). The youngest was Jonathan Dayton of New Jersey (26).

* When the Constitution was signed, the population of the United


States was only 4 million.

* There was initially a question as to how to address the President.


The Senate suggested that he be addressed as “His Highness the
President of the United States of America and Protector of their
Liberties.” Fortunately, the House of Representatives and the Senate
eventually agreed on the use of “President of the United States.”

Why do I make such a big deal about the Constitution? It’s what
makes us a free country – if we set it aside we will be giving up
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

ALL our liberties. If you want to read the United States Constitution
online you can do so at http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html.

13
Fact # 5
You Can’t Trust The Media
What’s your favorite? Fox News? MSNBC? CNN? It doesn’t matter
which one you choose, none of them can be trusted to give you all
the details in a non-biased way. They all have an agenda and they
are constantly putting their opinions in the mix.

I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry when I hear them say on Fox
News that they are fair and balanced. What a laugh! There never
was more of a Republican propaganda agency anywhere on the face
of the earth. And on the other extreme we have MSNBC – the liberal
version of Fox News. Very unfair and extremely unbalanced. Take
your pick, choose your poison. They all have their agenda.

So what do we do to get our news? I’m not suggesting you stop


watching those networks, but I am advising you to shop around. Get
your news from several sources. You have a variety on TV, plus you
have radio, newspapers and the internet. Use all the resources at
your disposal. Stay informed – don’t just get a daily fix of kool-aid.

Here are some news websites I like.

Fact # 6
America’s Government Is Getting More
Fascist Everyday

Laurence Britt, a political scientist, studied the fascist regimes of:


Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto
(Indonesia), and Pinochet (Chile). He concluded that every fascist
government had 14 things in common. Here are his 14 points which
are actually a part of an essay he wrote in 2004 for Free Inquiry
magazine. The article is called Fascism Anyone?

14 POINTS OF FASCISM

1. Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism

In the article Britt listed some examples.

a) prominent displays of flags


-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

b) suspicion of things foreign

c) pride in the military

We definitely have these things going on in America. Just this in itself


does not sound bad, but when you group it with the other things it
paints an ugly picture.

2. Disdain for the importance of human rights

Britt mentioned the way fascist governments use propaganda,


secrecy and disinformation to keep citizens in the dark, and placed
little value on human rights. We have that in America.

15
3. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause

Britt mentioned how fascist governments blamed their problems on


scapegoats they choose – such as terrorists, homosexuals or
socialists. Anyone who speaks against the government is labeled as
being in one of the scapegoat groups. Hmmm, we use terrorists,
homosexuals and socialists, also.

4. The supremacy of the military

Britt mentioned that fascists regimes like to use the military to assert
national goals, intimidate other nations, and increase the power and
prestige of the politicians and the upper class. We certainly used our
military to assert national goals in Iraq.

5. Rampant sexism

Britt discussed how the government was generally male dominated


and viewed women as second-class citizens. He said they were anti-
abortion and homophobic.

6. A controlled mass media

Britt claimed that some fascist regimes kept the mass media under
strict control using economic control, licensing and access to
resources. The result was usually success in keeping the general
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

public unaware of the regimes’ excesses.

In America the news organizations are usually owned by big


business, which dictates what they want to tell the public.
Remember, big business is in with the politicians. They tell us what
they want us to know and believe.

7. Obsession with national security

Questioning the activities of the government was portrayed as


unpatriotic or even an act of treason. People are made to be fearful,
and told the military would protect them; therefore it had to be built
up.

16
George Bush started this whole thing in America, claiming people
who questioned his administration were unpatriotic. Now, many
democrats have taken up that idea and accuse anyone who doubts
President Obama of being unpatriotic.

8. Religion and Government are intertwined

The government and religion were somehow tied together. Generally


fascist regimes aligned themselves with the predominant religion of
the country and portrayed themselves as militant defenders of that
religion.

We can see that clearly in America. All smart politicians will claim to
be Christian. It is rare to see one live what one would normally
consider a Christian life, but they know how to give it lip service and
use it to their advantage. George Bush was a master of this strategy.
Many conservative Christians lifted him up as if he was some sort of
a god. He could do no wrong in their eyes.

9. Power of corporations protected

The political elite, to ensure a continued mutuality of interests, often


pampered members of the economic elite. Politicians saw the
corporate structure as a way to ensure military production and social
control.
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

Big business and big government go hand in hand. The politicians


take care of the bankers and the bankers take care of the politicians.
Does the word bailout ring a bell?

10. Power of labor suppressed or eliminated

Labor unions were crushed or made powerless. The poor working


men and women were considered tools and a means to an end.
Business and government worked together to keep labor unions and
the common man under control.

Labor unions have no power in America – especially in the south.


Laws have been passed to ensure big business does what it wants.

17
The working class are treated as property and given very little respect
and practically no control over their environment at work.

11. Disdain and suppression of intellectuals and the arts

Fascist regimes often are against intellectual and academic freedom,


often claiming they are unpatriotic. They further claim that art and
literature should serve the national interest if they want to justify their
existence.

12. Obsession with crime and punishment

Most fascist regimes, according to Britt, have huge prison


populations. The police usually have unchecked power and are
glorified. The citizens are encouraged to fear the criminals and the
police are made out to be the heroes who keep them safe from the
thugs.

At the beginning of 2008 more than 1 out of 100 adults in America


were in prison. We have so many laws that the lawyers can’t keep up
with them. We put drug users in prison and allow rich murderers to
go free. Something is wrong with that picture.

13. Rampant cronyism and corruption

Business and government take care of each other in fascist societies,


-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

according to Britt. The corruption works both ways. The politicians


make laws to help big business and the businessmen give money
and property to the politicians, and also give them high-paying jobs
when they leave public office. That sure sounds like America, doesn’t
it? It’s wrong.

14. Fraudulent elections

The government controls the election machinery, intimidates


opposition voters and destroys or disallows unwanted votes.

We hear of these things going on in America almost every election.


I’m not saying it’s orchestrated from the White House, but it does
happen. Our system needs to be more responsible and reliable.

18
Fact # 7
America Has More Than Two Political Parties
Would you shop at a grocery store that only stocked two items? Of
course not, that would be silly. A store like that could not stay in
business anyway. People want a variety and we like to have a choice
in pretty much everything. So why is it that most Americans pretend
there are only two political parties in our country? I don’t get it.
Almost everyone in America votes either Democrat or Republican.
Many of them do not even consider looking into the other parties to
see what they are all about. I don’t want to offend anyone here, but I
have to say that is totally irresponsible behavior, and that is one of
the reasons our nation is in such a mess.

I want to encourage you to do some online research and check out


the other political parties in America. It will be well worth your time.
Here are a few suggestions to start with.

The Constitution Party - www.constitutionparty.com

The Libertarian Party - www.lp.org

The Green Party - www.gp.org


-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

The Independent American Party - www.usiap.org

That should get you started in the right direction. Take the time to
learn about these parties. Find out which one you can vote for with a
clear conscience. Don’t let anyone convince you that you are wasting
your vote if you vote for someone who is not a Republican or
Democrat.

“The only time you waste your vote is when you do not
vote your conscience.”

19
Fact # 8
You Can Not Depend On Your Employer
Perhaps you are one of those rare people that have a job you love
and you can’t imagine working anywhere else. First of all, allow me
to congratulate you, because you are truly blessed. Most people are
not particularly happy with what they do, but they tolerate it in order to
make a living. It simply has to be done.

Maybe you are one of those unfortunate people who absolutely hates
what you do, and you think your boss or the company you work for
must be in league with the devil. You know they are rude, wicked
and totally rotten. You would do anything to get out, but you are stuck
there because you can’t find anything better. I want you to know that
I understand that. I’ve been there. It stinks.

Every day in America companies close their doors and leave their
workers out in the cold without an income and without health
insurance. Sometimes they will give the employees a warning but
other times they just close the doors without any notice whatsoever.
Loyal employees will go into work one day and discover the doors are
locked and a sign on the door that says the company has gone out of
business. They are shocked, confused, angry and naturally very
scared. “What will I do now? I have a family to support,” they say.
-- Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -- www.fastpdf.com --

The bottom line is you just can’t trust your employer. They are in
business for one purpose – to make a profit. Even if you have been
with the firm for fifty years you are still a tool – a means to an end. As
soon as the company decides you are not profitable you will be
terminated and replaced. You need to accept this as fact, because it
is. Don’t make your plans based on a false assumption that you will
always have that job. It could change tomorrow.

20
Conclusion & Call To Action
Now that I’ve come to the part where I’m supposed to wrap this all up
and hopefully leave the reader with a good impression, I feel that
more could have been said, and perhaps more should have been
said, but then I would have had to put far more into this work than
what I had intended.

I basically just wanted to wake people up, and get them to thinking
that things are not all right in America. I want people to see that the
America we live in now is not the America our grandparents lived in.
In fact, the America they thought they lived in was not what it was
presented as being. When President Wilson sold us out to the
Federal Reserve System our country started on a downhill slide, and
most folks just thought everything was okay. They worked hard and
did as they were told. They were loyal to their country and to their
employers and, believe it or not, most of them trusted those two
entities.

I’m not so sure our grandparents would have even wanted to live in
our America. We aren’t as free as they were. Sure we have things
they did not have – we have TV, internet, cell phones, computers and
all sorts of modern technology they could not have even imagined,
but they had the American Dream. They were told that if they got a
good education and worked hard that they could make a better life for

themselves and their children and much of the time that actually
worked out that way.

Can we ever get back that American Dream? Many Americans living
today actually believed in it at one time. We worked hard, got a great
education (and went deep in debt while getting it) only to find that the
payoff did not materialize. We came out of it all feeling used, abused
and angry. We were conned, and we fell for it. The odds were
against us all along. Somebody stacked the deck, and we got left
with a bad hand. We have a right to be angry, and we have a right to
want to do something about it. Do we dare? Or perhaps the better
question is “do we dare to do nothing?”

What if we choose to do nothing and let things go in the direction they
are going in now? Then our grandchildren will indeed live in a totally
fascist society. Is that what you want? If so, just try to forget all
you’ve read and go on your merry way. Do whatever you normally do
to ignore reality and watch our society go to hell. But if you want to
see our country get back to something positive then I have some
suggestions on how you can help. It will take a lot of us going in the
same direction.

I hope I’ve gotten your attention in this essay. I hope I’ve angered
you somewhat – not anger toward me, but anger at those who have
used and abused us for so long. Are you angry at how the
government keeps taking away our rights? Are you angry at the way
big business and the government are always working together to
screw the working man and woman? Are you angry at the big
banks that run the country and The Fed that keeps printing money
that has no value? Are you angry with those Americans who seem to
bury their head in the sand and choose to “not get involved in
politics?” Are you angry with greedy employers who care nothing
about their workers? If you are like me and many other Americans
you will have to answer, “yes” to every single one of those questions.

Perhaps you think I’ve painted a pretty depressing picture of how


things are in America. Maybe I have, but I do believe it had to be
done in order to get the attention of some who may have their heads

stuck in the sand. Some people still believe that if only the right
people are in Washington things will be better. Even though that is
true to a certain extent what we really need is a radical change – both
in Washington and all across America. We need to change the way
we think. If American citizens do not educate themselves about what
is really going on in America, and become willing to take action, then
we don’t have much of a chance, but if we will rise up and do the
things I recommend then maybe we can save America. But we all
need to realize that the politicians are not going to be our saviors.
We need to lead the way.

There Are Things We Can Do

* We need to elect politicians who are in favor of small government.

* We need to get rid of the Federal Reserve System.

* We need to abolish the National Income Tax.

* We need to have a non-interventionist policy on foreign affairs.

* We need to give the states more rights.

* We need to help others to understand what’s covered in this book.

* We need to consider ourselves political activists – and act.

What Can I Do? I’m Only One Person

Perhaps you are saying, “What can I do? I’m only one person, and I
have no influence in Washington.” Well I’m going to list a few things
you can do. It may not seem like much, but if you choose to work
with me on this project we actually can make a difference. You’ve
hung with me this far so hang on just a little longer. Here is where
you find out where you fit in. If you will commit to these five simple
things it will make a difference in the future of our great nation.

1) Educate yourself about the various political parties in America. I


gave links to several of them. Find out what they are all about.

2) Vote your conscience – remember, the only time your vote is


wasted is when you vote for something you don’t believe in. The vote
for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. You have more than
two choices. You deserve the right to more than two choices.

3) Vote for candidates that are in favor of small government, and the
other things I mentioned on the previous page.

4) Get involved in a local patriotic campaign. You might be interested


in Campaign For Liberty. Be a true patriot. Do something for your

country.

5) Circulate this document to others. Feel free to send it to everyone


on your address list if you want. I put it in this pdf format for a reason
– you can download it to your computer and attach it to emails very
easily. If you believe in what I’ve been saying then help me to
spread the word.
