Nothing new there. The worlds most prominent bankers got together and designed the legislation that led to our Federal Reserve system, which was then put before Congress as the solution to bring an end to the economic boom/bust cycle, and as a means to stabilize the purchasing power of the currency. Pay no attention to the fact that the most devastating downturns, recessions, and outright depressions have occurred post the institution of the Federal Reserve system, and that our currency is presently worth only roughly 2% to at best 3% of what it was worth pre the Federal Reserve.

interesting voting for PA vs NY. In PA it went down party line: all 'pubs for, all dems against. In NY it was split with most half dems and most 'pubs for it. My rep, a 'pub, was the only 'pub "no vote". Coward!




(This was Oct 30 BTW and still has not gone to senate. It has a 19% chance of passage. https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/113-2013/h569)

These next couple years may be good for the independents running. I keep finding myself thinking that is how I will be voting from now on. We need some real conservatives to run.

The problem is in defining a conservative. Today the most common definition of conservative points to a candidate who is a war mongering necocn verging upon being an outright fascist. The libertarian leaning conservatives like Rand Paul are mainly considered to be clowns (by the neocons). Ditto for the highly confused and conflicted Tea Party conservatives who basically waver like a lost puppy endlessly somewhere within the nowhere land between being neocons and clowns. Therefore its neocon or confused and conflicted or outright clown. Take your choice.

You must consider the size and power of the forces behind this type of lawmaking. Doors closed to us, secret meetings, passing papers, right to know, all tools of their trade. It seems like no matter who one votes for these days, they all develop a taste for the government "juice". I will bet that we do not know the half of what is really going on. The largest of all questions is, What can we do about it? Vote some more ;) , or come up with more money than them to help with their thinking because that is all they seem to understand. :( Mike
