Dear Next Generation,

Dear Next Generation,

It is not every day that we have the opportunity to watch an anomaly in the world – a nation that is governed by the people – slowly be eroded into a nation of economic slaves, while we continue to work and play as if nothing is wrong.
While you were dialing in for American Idol, your representatives at a federal level continued to argue amongst themselves about how to deal with a $14-plus trillion debt, a deficit that as-stands will not be able to pay present and future obligations, and the fact that with both unemployment and underemployment considered, there are between 24% and 29% of American people who are suffering from not being able to work.

While you were enamored with the latest meat-attire of Lady Gaga, your government and the Federal Reserve “bailed out”, “loaned”, and “stimulated” companies, organizations, and economies of not only the United States, but also foreign entities.  The results of this are being seen, and will continue to have devastating effects on the economy.  “Quantitative easing” is like calling an EF5 tornado a “Qualitative smoothing” – it is semantics, and a lie.

While you decided that voting “didn’t do any good”, 535 people helped to make federal decisions that affect YOUR privacyYOUR right to protect yourself, and YOUR right to consume products that you may enjoy or that may benefit you.

While you didn’t “get involved” because you thought that you weren’t able or capable of participating, hundreds of men and women who cannot read the Constitution of the United States of America, who can’t read the bills until after they pass, and who cannot balance a budget, made over six figures while “representing” you.

While you were afraid to call out these politicians and “leaders” for what they were doing, several of us screamed at the top of our lungs to stop being apathetic and join us.

Thankfully, that moment is not quite over yet.  The opportunity to make a difference is real, and it is not too late.

Down to Brass Tacks

Because I am in the publishing industry, I listen to people talk – as consumers, clients, news-reporters, etc.

Yeah, the economy is slowing, the numbers look dismal, and unemployment is definitely up – that being said, I walk around town and watch thousands of people driving around, like nothing is really wrong.

What to believe?  I don’t know, but I can tell you this – our federal government needs to get down to business about what is causing the most problems for average Americans (not for big-businesses, not for big-government).  Our MONETARY POLICY is the problem.  Monetary policy – WHO CONTROLS THE MONEY SUPPLY – is what is causing the fluctuations and unsustainable behaviors in the economy.  Quantitative easing is just a word to make complete destruction sound like a nice thing.

We need to get down to brass tacks – neither Republicans or Democrats at the federal level (minus a select few) are shouting at the top of their lungs that our biggest problem is the monetary policy engaged in between Congress and the Federal Reserve.

If we focus on the VALUE of our DOLLAR (which is different than a FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE which is in your pocket right now), we can see that we are ALL being bankrupted by the system as it stands now.  We need money that allows us to build and create wealth, not fiat currency that doesn’t mean anything when in our pockets, under our mattresses, and in our banks.

Sound radical?  You bet it is – the base of the word radical means to “go back to one’s roots” by the way.  (Want to know what is REALLY “radical”?  The fact that we are over 14 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT – UNBELIEVABLE).   Thomas Jefferson would want us to get to the heart of our problem and fix it – our labor is taxed, our money is legal tender – we don’t have control over our property or our earnings – how can we fix that?
