The video is self-explanatory. This is a cut of an interview with the economist Milton Friedman, which answers a question about what rich people do with the profits they maliciously obtained from the poor citizens of our great nation.

The jig is up.

In 1887 Alexander Tytler, a Scottish history professor at the
University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always
temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous
gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from
the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a
dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie; and thus, by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.
-Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propagandist


Sounds like the mainstream media and politicians are following his modus operandi verbatim.

I think that song sums it up.

We are all the same.

So, you are not rich, if you need a big house. You are rich, if a small one will do.


Sober 6 months or so, I needed a beer!!!

I study them all. lol!!!

The cop who bought the apartment across the street. He will never be rich.

He is after money, in a wrong way.

You are not really voting here.

Just walk in to a political conversation.

Ask about on-line books, like Betfair.

The salvation of America, is to open the gambling doors. That debt???

Wiped out in but a few years.

I call it trading. They get the tax. Fair is fair!


Fake "Jesus" types surround us.

It is immoral, wrong.

It built America. I do not think Tesla gambled. But he sure traded!!!!

"No more gay way."

You actually gave up being gay?

I'm really proud of you son. If you could only stop lying now. Nothing wrong with playing meat flutes, if that's what you want to do anyways.

Carry on.

Please...

The Internal Revenue Code (Title 26 of the United States Code) IS the law that requires people to pay income taxes.

Because it is called a "Code" doesn't give these morons any legitimate reason to claim there is no "Law."

Try again, I guess.




Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. ---Mark Twain
