    • Give’Em the Old Razzle Dazzle
      Janet Yellen channels Billy Flynn? Last week the Fed Chairwoman treated us to a master class of rhetorical misdirection which produced some memorable examples of doublespeak, including the soon to be classic “Just because we removed the word ‘patient’ does not mean we’re going to be ‘impatient.”‘ But perhaps more surprising than her new heights […] The post […]

    • The Bravado of Borrowers
      Last week a scene unfolded in Athens, largely unnoticed by American eyes, that provided all the visual and metaphorical symbols needed to define the current state of the global economy. Hollywood’s best screenwriters couldn’t have laid it out any better. Tiring of being told by self-righteous foreigners to pay for past borrowing with current austerity, […] T […]

1913, the Year of Infamy

Today is a sad day in America in that it’s the day our income taxes are due. Unfortunately, this tax didn’t always exist, and in fact America ran fine without any income tax for the majority of its existence. The federal government remained small, and received the majority of its funding through tariffs, excise, corporate, and payroll taxes.

However, a movement by political elitists in both parties started to arise in the early 20th century. This movement wanted a 16th amendment of the constitution that would allow the government to levy a direct tax on people’s income. It finally came to pass in a shady and shameless fashion during the first year Woodrow Wilson was elected president. At the same time, and absolutely being no coincidence, came the Federal Reserve Act which established America’s third national bank. This was, and still is, a private corporation but virtually a Government sponsored monoploy. Even the name, Federal Reserve, is an oxymoron in that it’s not federal and it has no reserves. The reason it wasn’t a coincidence that it came about the same year was that it would come to control our monetary system, having the privilege to print money and loan it to our government at interest. How was all this interest going to be repaid? Here comes in the lovely Income Tax.

In Wilson’s memoirs he lamented that he sold out America to special interests and international bankers. He was right. Since the inception of the Fed and the income tax, our dollar has lost 97% of its value, government size and power have grown out of control, and we are now slaves to our own debt.

It’s time for this madness to stop. We need to repeal the income tax and end the Federal Reserve, cutting the cord that feeds the Leviathan. It’s time for America to take back our country after having it sold out for almost 100 years. It’s time for a real revolution.
