WRITER STRESSES A POINT: 8 MAY 2010, 1453 HOURS.
These guys on TV were talking about spending and one made the point that government spending money comes from businesses and the taxpayers.
The next thing is using money is supposed to be only an easier means of trading and bartering, societies survived with trading and bartering long before money or a currency was invented.
Actually, the value of money is supposed to be in the money itself in the form of gold, silver, or some other precious metal, not some worthless paper backed only on faith.
It started when someone suggested why carry around all of this heavy money why not let the government print a paper note and lock the gold and silver away as a backup.
That worked just fine until the “New deal” came along and opened the door for the government to seize the traditional family provider role for itself.
Once government got a taste of the God like power of being a super sugar daddy provider the politicians went hog wild and is still spending like there is no tomorrow.
The gold backup did survive until President Richard M. Nixon just flat outright outlawed it, then the liberals from both political parties with little or no resistance found themselves in spending hog heaven and are still having a field day.
Life itself is a process of cycles and rebirths, success and failure are part of our existence and there is absolutely nothing man can do to change that fact.
That means booms, busts, good times, hard times, famines, and horrible acts of nature are always going to come around sooner or later. The only tried and true protection that has allowed man and civilization to survive over the years is to maintain and safeguard a strong culture.
A strong culture must have a strong nuclear and extended family system, a strong religious or moral code in place, and adequate backup bartering capacity, we have very little of that left.
A physical valued or gold backed currency will safe guard a nations culture by purging or holding at bay the negative anti-survival forces like moral decay, left and right extremes, and porn.
Now, the only way to save the USA is to some how rebuild her culture, but that can never happen unless the people and the states vote the welfare state beast out of its super provider role.
Freedom is something the average American takes for granted. While we sleep comfortable in our cozy warm beds at night very few of us ever take time to think that vigilantly standing guard every second twenty four hours everyday protecting us is our military.
