Blame the Federal Reserve

Atascadero

As a dedicated Libertarian voter, I have watched with amusement the pontifications and hyperbole offered by both dominant parties regarding the relevant qualifications of their candidates and platforms, and the current situation on Wall Street. One glaring omission in the polemics is the acknowledgement that, of all the recent presidential candidates, only Dr. Ron Paul presented the current Wall Street crisis as a valid concern for the American public in his campaign. For his prescience, he was scorned and marginalized by the mainstream media, and we were led like lambs to the pending slaughter.

Wake up, people! The Federal Reserve Banks are privately owned and were licensed in 1913 to print and lend money to the U.S. government at 6 percent interest. It is they to whom the multi-trillion national debt is owed.

The government sold us out then, and they’re about to do it again. A wise man once said, “There are none so blind as those who will not see.” How true.
