I have linked to an interesting article about the federal reserve and how this institution is destroying the currency,wealth and keeping this country in perpetual debt.  Rep. Ron Paul is the only candidate for President that is talking about this and he is painted as some kind of kook but he is right on target!! None of the other candidates in either party want to discuss what the Federal Reserve is doing to this country because they are in on it! Below is a link to to article:

10 Things That Every American Should Know About The Federal Reserve

http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-times/article.php?articleid=7982

A friend of mine was showing me the difference between a one dollar silver certificate and a current dollar bill, I have also attached photos of a one dollar silver certificate from 1935 for everyone to see and a current dollar:

It may hard to see but in today’s dollar at the very top it reads “Federal Reserve Note”. On the one dollar silver certificate it reads ” Silver certificate” and at the bottom it reads ” One Dollar, In silver payable to the bearer on demand”.  All of today’s money has no value and by letting the Federal Reserve control the money it is keeping us in debt and getting worse. The congress is supposed to be in charge of the money, but they have given this authority to the Federal Reserve which is nothing more than a private bank run by a bunch of greedy bankers!  I am just helping to spread the word so we call become more educated and hope we as a nation become focused on the serious issues and not what the Kardashians are up to!

One again I have received my annual bonus and as usual the government takes their standard 42% in taxes that include; Federal, State, Local, Medicare, and Social Security.  I don’t even look forward to it because I know this will be stolen from me and it is quite disheartening to bust your tail all year and hope this extra money will help me catch up on a few things then I look at the deposit and get angry about it!

I am not one to sit around and complain as I try to take action to express my frustration and in this case I have done so by writing my Congressman and Senator. As can be expected I received less than an adequate response to the unfairness of taking this percentage of my bonus.  In a nutshell I was told I could claim this on my taxes and get in back in a refund. Well guess what.. I can’t!!, This is counted as regular income on my W-2 so I can’t enter this on my income tax in a way to get any type of deduction. As a matter of fact I received a two page letter that gave me the “runaround” on why “my money” was stolen from me!

Let me say, I understand there have to be taxes to run the country but when this government is wasting all this money and we give money to countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq that hate us, want us dead and all the while the people in this country are falling farther and farther behind in trying to make a living!  I have a proposal to make with the government: “Go ahead and take 42% from me but in return I want them to give me back the kind of money they are giving to these countries in the Middle East”.  If all Americans were “given” back the money this country hands to these ingrateful nations, the economy would turn around in 6 months!  As long as the government continues to confiscate money from the citizens at an unfair rate the less incentive we all have to work harder and to be better!

I intend on writing another letter to my Representatives on this issue as I will not give up!! It may never change, but it doesn’t do me any good to just sit here a stew about it and I suggest we all do the same and let Washington know we are watching!
