(sorry for the length but this needs to get out to those who are clueless)
Right! What most folks don't understand, because it's kept from them, is that our financial system is a giant Ponzi/Pyramid scheme created by the robber barons of the 1800's...in 1913. They bought a handful of senators and over the Christmas break when everyone had left DC, they passed the Federal Reserve Act that gave the criminal banksters the RIGHT to counterfeit money! Plain and simple. Our Constitution says that only Congress has the right to coin (create) money.
Now, a Ponzi scheme collapses when the promoter can't con any new folks into giving him their money so that he can keep paying those at the top that he's previously conned. Our government spending, our yearly budget (Defense, SSA, student loan forgiveness etc.) IS that new money coming in on the bottom in order to keep the scheme from total collapse.
So, if any lying politician tells you that they are gonna curb government spending, they're blowing smoke up your azz. Cause they know full well what's going on and no one wants to be the cause of the most horrific crash the world has ever seen. So they're gonna keep spending and YOU are gonna keep being enslaved and footing the bill (being the new money at the bottom!).
Our only hope, as I see it, is crypto and/or aliens landing and bitch slapping the banksters and freeing us. Both are somewhat long shots. But I'd buy me a lil crypto just in case.
