Someday, somewhere, a father is going to tell his young son this "fairy tale."
Years ago, as recently as the 80's, the United States had this archaic concept called "The Rule of Law." Wikipedia defines it as
The rule of law is a legal maxim that states no person is immune to law.
The phrase has been used since the 17th century, but the concept can be traced to ancient Greece. Aristotle put it this way: "law should govern". Rule of law stands in contrast to the idea that the sovereign is above the law (rex lex), a feature of Roman Law and other legal systems.
One way to be free from the rule of law is by denying that an enactment has the necessary attributes of law. The rule of law has therefore been described as "an exceedingly elusive notion" giving rise to a "rampant divergence of understandings".
Nobody is above the law- unless of course those charged with enforcing the law choose indifference. Whether they are hostage or corrupt, perhaps fearful, makes little difference. So let me run a theory by you.
If thousands of bankers commit fraudulent acts that essentially go unprosecuted...If the suspects get bailed out and the rules do not even change...and the 4th branch of government, the FEDERAL RESERVE Bank takes over and counterfeits and prints treasury debt that enslaves your work product in the form of future taxes...
Are we a bank or a country? Who do you work for?
What I'm about to extend is a hypothesis. That we quit being a country sometime between the Savings and Loan debacle of the 1980's and 2008. That the bankers have usurped the power of the United States through payoffs to politicians, by debt slavery, by placing a stranglehold so strong on this country that we don't dare enforce the rule of law. They did this via the unelected Fourth Branch of Government. They have a monopoly on your money-thus the value of your work. A branch not defined by the Constitution. A branch of government that does not play by any rules. It goes unaudited. It hires from within. It has the power to extend your work product to anyone, in the world, that it chooses to. In short, the bankers own this fucking place. They own you- sharecroppers. The bankers run the government. The government in turn- runs you.
The United States has become nothing more than a bank. It pledges you and your work product as collateral to the world. Government only exists to make sure you pay their debts and enrich their players. That's it. It is undeniable. All those battles, wars, and lost lives. All that flag waving and those grave markers. We gave up our freedom and our lives so that a bunch of bankers could make us work for them. That's what it has devolved into. They are above the law. They are the governing body.
That's how a country got turned into a bank. It doesn't seem much like a fairy tale does it?
