10 Things That Would Be Different If the Federal Reserve Had Never Been Created

The vast majority of Americans, including many of those who believe that they are “educated” about the Federal Reserve, do not really understand how the Federal Reserve really makes money for the international banking elite.

*** and ***

Now, the only way that the U.S. government can inject more money into the economy is by going into more debt. But when new government debt is created, the amount of money to pay the interest on that debt is not also created. In this way, it was intended by the international bankers that U.S. government debt would expand indefinitely and the U.S. money supply would also expand indefinitely. In the process, the international bankers would become insanely wealthy by lending money to the U.S. government.

*** and ***

#1 If the U.S. government had been issuing debt-free money all this time, the U.S. government could conceivably have a national debt of zero dollars. Instead, we currently have a national debt that is over 14 trillion dollars.

Time to “face the music” or, in this case, the unelected “Fourth Branch of Gooferment” the banking cartel, the Federal Reserve Bank, which ain’t “federal”, “reserves” nothing, and is in no way a “bank”.

We need Ron Paul to pull back the covers and see how badly we have been screwed by a cartel that has monopoly powers enforced by its “friends” in the Gooferment!

Why do we need “anyone” in Gooferment involved in “money”?

When we had gold circulating as money, we had zero politicians and bureaucrats on the payroll to “manage” it.

And, we had gradually declining prices.

We need to get back to that!

SOFTWARE: DROPBOX and TRUECRYPT

How To Use Dropbox and TrueCrypt To Securely Transfer Files Privately

USING DROPBOX AND TRUECRYPT

Using Dropbox and TrueCrypt should appear fairly self-evident by now. For example, you can travel with a laptop that contains no information across borders and when you arrive at your destination just install Dropbox and sync with your files from the cloud. Because Dropbox has control of the encryption key you can use TrueCrypt for an added layer of protection. That way if the Dropbox servers were compromised for whatever reason the your files would still be encrypted.

Another wonder aspect of setting up your information architecture to use TrueCrypt and Dropbox is that you no longer need to worry about backing up the files. This can save lots of time and headache.

So much for the child pornographers being caught at the border crossing.

I’m advising that all international travelers NOT carry ANY computing platform through “security”. (Not that it makes us any more secure; it’s just theater to amuse the rubes.)

That means phone, ipads, netbooks … … nothing.

You can’t know what they will “find” when they do their “data proctology” exam. Or, what they will place on your hardware when it’s outside of your control.

Come to think of it that’s good advice even inside the US.

Argh!
