A look into why congress wants to know more about what the Federal Reserve Bank is doing with our money.

These are just a few of the double standards you will see in our society. I would like to be as direct as possible so people can begin to see why we have such a thing as a Bill of Rights and a Constitution. Government is just as much responsible to the Rule of Law as the rest of us (if not more so). Governments need to always be accountable to the people and not the other way around. If you feel your government has violated your rights then its time to speak up and take some action. Don’t vote for the same politicians that lie, cheat, steal, and encourage corrupt behavior. Don’t vote for politicians that promise change and then act the same as the last tyrant. Don’t allow the Constitution to be violated by government. Don’t allow the government to abuse your liberties and steal your wealth. If people truly desire change then they must take the responsibility upon themselves first and educate those around them.

Broadband for America has inched closer to reality: The plan, after two years of debate, is finally on the calendar for a full vote by the Federal Communications Commission. Assuming the plan is approved at the FCC’s Dec. 18 meeting, one of the agency’s last before President-elect Barack Obama takes office, free broadband could become reality within a year.(http://www.usatoday.com/tech/wireless/2008-12-01-free-broadband_N.htm)
Only a fool would want a censored, restricted, and regulated internet by your government.
At 8:16 hours on August 6th 1945 the United States government dropped the first atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima. Did our government need to go this far? Why do so many innocent people die from government actions such as these? As the saying goes, “absolute power, corrupts absolutely”. We must keep our governments in check to prevent the abuses against the innocent.
Government should never grow so big that the average person is disfranchised by the system. When this happens people lose touch with what a moral and responsible government should act like. I think that the only solution to our overwhelming national debt and foreign policy debacles is for each state to take a step back and begin to govern themselves, for themselves. Each State in the United States could easily function as an independent nation, there is no question about that. Are people willing to take that step forward is the next question?
The Declaration of Independence makes more sense today, than ever. The American Empire just like the English Empire is/was too big for its own good. The massive amounts of debt that the Empire creates is too much of a strain for the populations to handle. Its time to look for small, responsible governments (starting with your own community), its time to think secession.
