December 24, 2013 Site Staff 174

Aside from the ignorance and apathy of American voters, the biggest enabler of the American police state is the central bank, which provides limitless cash supplies to the government. December 23rd marks the 100th anniversary of this bank, called the Federal Reserve (or “the Fed”). This historic anniversary is no reason to celebrate; rather it is time we reflect on the practically invisible, yet unimaginably devious system which has been robbing Americans for the last century.

Our government is nearly 17 trillion dollars in debt (put another way, 1 trillion is a million million or a thousand billion) and yet Obama and other representatives of the military industrial complex (that Eisenhower warned us about) want to get involved in yet another war with a foreign country that never attacked us or threatened our freedom in any way. Our government’s obsession of meddling in the affairs of other nations rarely ends well, and though the arms industry may profit from unnecessary wars, these foreign conflicts do not benefit our country as a whole — especially not the taxpayers. Quick to assume the moral high ground, the U.S. government depends on citizens’ foreign policy amnesia regarding its own use of chemical weapons. The only thing more maddening than America’s insistence to go to war, is its hypocrisy in doing so.
