While the politicians in Washington, D.C., claim we have a revenue problem and they must increase our taxes to fix the problem, the truth is we have a spending problem that they are unwilling to address. Unconstitutional spending by the federal government runs rampant, and the professional politicians of both parties are battling for control over that money, and the control of our liberty that accompanies that spending. Both sides of the political coin defend big government, seeking more power, and spending more and more of We the People’s money to achieve that power.

Meanwhile, through the Federal Reserve, international bankers issue America’s currency, controlling our economy through the mere press of a button, deflating the dollar at will, as more and more fiat money is pumped into the American economic system, moving us closer and closer to collapse with each passing fiscal quarter.The members of Congress claim they wish to balance the budget, but no budget is ever presented, and when it is it never gains the traction it should.  Automatic increases riddle the system (ensured by baseline budgeting), and spending cuts are accused of causing government shutdowns, and a disruption in services that the federal government never had the constitutional authority to be a part of in the first place.

Thomas Jefferson would be terribly disappointed in what we are allowing.  In fact, he specifically spoke out against it, saying, “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”—Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill that had been originally initiated by statist Secretary of the Treasury under George Washington, Alexander Hamilton (1809).
