MMT-PP

I just finished reading an article posted by Ralph Nader on the common dreams website in which he talks about the fraud that is the “Grand Bargain” Obama is pushing for with the republicans. Every president wants to leave a legacy for his time as President of America. I believe his legacy will be without question the betrayal of the progressive left in America to such an extent this is true that the new buzz word and or new political climate will be that of the populist party, much like it was in the late 19th century. Monetary policy is key to a prosperous economy and country. Obama as many writers have acknowledged is doing the bidding of his true constituency Wall Street and the bankers. MMT-PP is a way out of this dilemma. But as this president has shown from the very beginning he is no progressive and has no intention of advocating for the working class in America. There is a 3rd option in economic policy, health care, and many other issues facing our nation. How is it possible for the populist to have a voice? I believe what we have to do to begin with, is distinguish ourselves from the progressives. It was not until the president betrayed the progressives that the majority of people understood there was indeed another political affiliation, which is the populist party. In essence the populist party platform is the following;
fiat currency with mmt-pp
overturning the citizens united ruling favoring corporations
campaign finance reform
I am an advocate of these policies, and talk to all the people I know about these things. This is true hope and real change.

going on vacation

Well Lisa and I are on our way to Cozumel for vacation. This will be our first cruise ever. I’m a bit nervous about the whole thing actually. It’s the sea creatures I fear. If we hit some kind of warm water iceberg or something weird like that, we might find ourselves in the water with sharks and other big fish that don’t really think about what they eat. I’ll try to blog during the vacation, but it’s doubtful my hope is to get some reading in. I have two books in mind For all the people by John Curl, and I just might have to break down and buy Joe Hirschhorns Delusional Democracy.

Follow the money

We keep hearing this follow the money theme across the web. It suppose to be a way of exposing the crony capitalism going on in our country. I think it’s exactly right. Power in America today is rooted in who has the most money. Who has the most to give to political action groups and who is putting up the money to buy a politician? Both parties are doing this. They are exactly the same in this respect. Maybe one gives more than the other but they both never the less give big money to pass laws that favor multinational corporations over the  mom and pop businessmen in America. It’s all about the money. So because it is about the money, I have started to research where this money comes from and how is it distributed in our country. I must say it’s very confusing not easy to understand but I’m starting to get a picture of the whole thing as I read books like democracy incorporated, beyond the bubble, Aftershock the next economy, greedy bastards, the gods of money, babylons banksters and the countless videos on youtube not to mention my all time favorite idiot acting Max Keiser who has some real good information about the banksters and the global economy. One of the three most basic problems we face here in America is monetary policy this is killing America in a profound way we are the next Greece !

So here we are now, at this time in our history, we see a movement evolving, and occupying everywhere. I just saw a clip from the Rachel Maddow Show showing how we have become like the Hoovervilles of the 1930’s and how the occupy protesters are defending homes by standing in the way of police to evict people who’s homes are being foreclosed on. This is what happened during the depression. This is what Lawrence Goodwyn wrote about in his book “The Populist Movement” The reason why the populist were so successful and why they had the power and platform to make it to the national elections with William J Bryan they “the occupyers” of those days did something tangible. They made a physical difference in someones lives. In the book he talks about a father who was to proud to apply for unemployment the father said ” he wasn’t going to get hand outs that he wasn’t a communist ” The occupyers went to his home defended him and his family against the police in trying to evict him from his home and were successful. Afterwards the proud man went to one of the occupyers meeting and found he agreed with what they were advocating and by the end of the meeting he was telling his story and committed himself to the cause. This was a great testament to the human spirit and what standing for truth and justice is all about. Watch now after seeing this clip or hearing about this story the earlier post on Max Keiser and than make your own decision. Where will you stand when your asked to participate? I went for only 2 days to occupy DC in October and talked to many people over there asking many questions. I was fortunate to speak with one of the main media organizers and posed this idea. As this movement and this fight for truth and social justice plays out, in the end it’s whether or not the police will go along with the orders being asked of them to do. They of course will stand by their creed “to keep the peace and public safety we do as we are told” They of course know full well the injustice of the system and those who perpetrate the ongoing lies and corruption. Sheriffs in the Northwest have come together to fight back and have told federal agents they will go to local jails for interfering with local jurisdiction. We need here from our local policemen, courage like that. We have to ask ourselves why do they do what they do? Defend the indefensible ?  The only reason I can come up with for their actions is because like the rest of humanity they also need to eat and clothes themselves and their families. The reason the rank and file follow orders from their superiors is because they also need that paycheck to pay for their mortgage and their cars and the food on the table. If this is so than, why don’t we, the occupyers give them their needs much like we do this for those being evicted why don’t we go the the officers homes and give them bread to eat? Maybe wash their cars and go with them to the movies on the weekend and buy their popcorn? Not so you can shame them into standing for what’s right but so you can show them man does not live by bread alone. But by the spirit. Do this out of genuine love. You might ask yourself why are the occupyers doing what they do? Do they not also need to eat and sustain themselves? Do they not also act on this fleshly need? are their complaints also we have to have money to we can feed ourselves and have shelter?Yes they do, and might it be true that if the question was put to those people, you are healthy and can grow your own food and are strong and can build for yourself shelter, what more do you want in life? I believe the protesters would say this is true I can and as I live in my make shift shelter and eat the fruits of my labor, the vegetables I grew in my back yard, I look around me and see an injustice being put upon my brothers and sisters and that is that the law I see at work is not of the spirit but is contrary to the spirit, that fights and makes war against the spirit of truth and justice. We who protest do not live in a vacuum but in a world in which we see both laws playing out in our society.  The occupyers” the protesters are saying there is an injustice going on here in America. This is a matter of the spirit. What has happened to our country and around the world is we see these two opposing forces taking place on the one side we see MONEY AND POWER and the other side we see TRUTH AND JUSTICE. Which side are you on? You have to decide for yourself. Make no mistake about it. You are on one side or the other. You are not neutral to this question nor are you ignorant of this question. You might not openly admit it, or maybe you have denied it to your conscience mind but you never the less are aware of this. And have indeed, and do indeed stand on one side or the other already. The consciousness, the awakening, everyone is talking about is due yes because of the information age, the fact that now normal everyday people can access information much like the time of the reformation when the printing press was invented and the common man began to read for himself the truth “so called” We have entered a new age a paradigm shift you can say. The battle lines are clearly drawn. The adversaries have been identified, and the battle has begun like once before on October 30 1517. Who is justified on this issue ? Will money and power rule over the peoples of the earth? Or will truth and justice rule?

This is an excellent clip from the Keiser report explaining what has happened to our country and our world. This is exactly why in my estimation it is very important we as a nation as for that matter our world come to understand what is happening and come together with one mind focused on changing two most basic problems our country faces. Notice how the person interviewed mentioned the idea of creating their own money supply. This is what presidents get shot in the head for. This is what in the old days the reverse fractional reserve banking the bankers got hung for. This is what we as a nation and the world for that matter need to go back to national sovereignty having the right, the  means, and the courage to hang bankers be what we are naturally are in the words of JFK free and independent.

Following up on my earlier blog entry, a simple act of wearing a yellow banner around yourself and placing one in between your car door hinges tells everyone you subscribe to and believe in the two questions; 1) It is a perversion of law and social justice to regard corporations as people who have the same 1st amendment rights as human flesh and blood people as we. 2) Get the money out of politics pass a constitutional amendment that gives us fair elections we may also add end the federal reserve banking system that has such a stranglehold on our economy. I’ll be posting a video on you tube showing the patriots how simple this is to do.
