    The Most Frustrating Thing In America… *Video*

    What is it that frustrates you the most?

    There are plenty of things you can think of, we’re sure.

    For us, it’s the fact that all around us there is turmoil – social, political, economic, financial – and when a true statesman stands up against the beast he or she is ignored, discredited, and lambasted by not only the mainstream media, but Main Street itself.

    Every American has gripes. Every American knows things are not as they should be. Most Americans will tell you that they distrust politicians in general, yet every election cycle they cast the same vote (if not for the same candidate, then for the same skewed ideology) hoping for change. Einstein had a word for this behavior

    Looking at our 2012 Presidential contenders, we can’t help but feel contempt and disgust. It’s the same story all over again. The election is being positioned so that we as an electorate are left to choose from the lesser of two evils, rather than the greater of two greats.

    Does anyone really think Mitt Romney would be any better than Obama considering his initiatives, namely a failed socialized health care plan in Massachusetts when he was governor?

    What about tentative front runner Rick Perry, the governor who forced HPV vaccines on 12 year olds via executive decree, the one who is oblivious to property rights and forcing Texans to leave land they’ve owned for generations so that he can build the Transnational corridor to further expand the North American Union, the one who claims Fed money printing is treasonous, yet fully supported the multi-trillion dollar bailouts for too-big-to-fails? Do you really want his version of liberty?

    Then there’s President Obama, who in all honesty has been nothing short of a disaster. Mr. Obama has failed to deliver on almost every single promise he made. We say “almost” because he did deliver on the promise to fundamentally change America forever.

    It’s frustrating. We’re frustrated, and we know you are too.

    When you see a Presidential candidate with the integrity, wherewithal and voting history to back his rhetoric, it’s frustrating to see nothing but marginalization from the media and the public. How can we as a people be so foolish as to ignore the only honest representative in Washington, choosing instead to once again fall into the mob mentality of having someone, usually a self professed expert, tell us who is or is not electable, who is or is not fringe, who is or is not mainstream?

    There is only one who has any chance of restoring America.

    Either the majority of Americans will back this candidate, or you can expect another four years calling Barack Obama President. Millions of Americans are frustrated and fed up, and they have been bamboozled not just for a few years, but decades. Those who have realized that candidates from both sides are nothing but a different head of the same snake are going to sit this election out unless a candidate who understands their frustrations and is prepared to act emerges from the Republican Primary. Americans are sick of more of the same, which is what we get from 99.9% of political candidates in local, state and federal elections, regardless of party affiliation.

    We will not compromise. We will not support another soulless, vapid sycophant. If Americans don’t realize how serious we are, they better get used to this for the next half decade:

    It is our view that there is only one man who can beat Barack Obama, and only one man who can truly begin the process of making America great again.

    1. Well here’s my lead baloon. Ron Paul is the only candidate in the race who’d make me vote for BH Obama. I like his economic theories but his foriegn policy was already tried in history by Mr. Chamberlin. Sorry but I don’t want to sit back and wait for Iran and North Korea to create a “One Second After” while we think they are our friends. I can’t support a man for president that isn’t willing to stand up to those who hate our nation, our way of life and will work to destroy it. Such a man is a coward, ignorant of history, and not worthy of my vote. I’d tell that to Paul’s face. Honestly I wish he’d educate himself on that because otherwise he’d be a fine candidate.

        What, you don’t think America is capable of defending itself withou having military bases all over the world.

        If I was president I would bring our troops home and I would tell the world that anyone who attacks us would be nuked into pre stone age conditions.

        We would probably have to do this twice (nuke em) before people would actually believe us.

            I too like the idea of killing the leaders of countries who threaten us but I disagree on the level of responsibility of the citizens of those countries. Because we tolerate ass-clowns like the current incumbent in chief and obey the unlawful and unconstitutional laws and regulations which we accept through obedience to them, we have a certain amount of culpability too. People get the government they deserve. Those who want to control other people’s behavior by passing laws against smoking, or using pot, or requiring seat belts to be worn deserve it when their property taxes are raised by the county government, or the homeowners association vetos the addition to their house because it violates an asthetic code. Point being, the citizens of other countries are just as guilty as the citizens of ours are for the leaders they choose or tolerate to be in charge. The tree of liberty must regularly be watered by the blood of patriots and tyrants and if we are unwilling to do so then we deserve what we receive.

        • JustMe,
          I agree with you on this. Ron Paul does not advocate sticking our head in the sand and ignoring problems. Instead he advocates closing down the military spending machine that is bankrupting our country and use those monies to build a military that is focused on defence of the homeland, not defence of Japan, Germany, and the other 200 countries in the world where we station troops. Being against a huge global military footprint is not the same as being Neville Chamberlain.

          Ron Paul is the only candidate who “gets it”.

        Bring home all our troops, spend the money we’re spending on that crap to rebuild America, and tell the rest of the world that an attack ( a TRUE attack, not a Reichstag fire ala 9/11 ) will be met by turning the attacking country into a glassed over parking lot.

        Ron Paul isn’t a coward, or ignorant of history…..he merely points out the folly of 50 years of our history.

          Please, please, please quit with the whole 122 countries crap. We’ve got a handful of bases in Europe, primarily England, Germany and Italy. We’ve got troops in Japan and Korea. Outside of the Horn of Africa, not too much in Africa. Advisors for the wasteful war-on-drugs in South America. Most of those ’122 countries’ have nothing more than Marines on embassy duty.

          Yeah, we’ve got too many guys in too many places. But we don’t have 122 major military installations all over the world. Again, most of that is embassy detail duty.

            At Least Seven Hundred Foreign Bases

            It’s not easy to assess the size or exact value of our empire of bases. Official records on these subjects are misleading, although instructive. According to the Defense Department’s annual “Base Structure Report” for fiscal year 2003, which itemizes foreign and domestic U.S. military real estate, the Pentagon currently owns or rents 702 overseas bases in about 130 countries and HAS another 6,000 bases in the United States and its territories. Pentagon bureaucrats calculate that it would require at least $113.2 billion to replace just the foreign bases — surely far too low a figure but still larger than the gross domestic product of most countries — and an estimated $591,519.8 million to replace all of them. The military high command deploys to our overseas bases some 253,288 uniformed personnel, plus an equal number of dependents and Department of Defense civilian officials, and employs an additional 44,446 locally hired foreigners. The Pentagon claims that these bases contain 44,870 barracks, hangars, hospitals, and other buildings, which it owns, and that it leases 4,844 more

        America is full of fine individuals, and we are judged based on our government, and the way we accept the nonsense because the media tells us so.

        Wake up fella, you are just wrong, and if you did your homework, you too would vote for Ron Paul, and end these mindless wars that our government starts for fallicious reasons.

            Yes, but, we don’t have have enough oil to run our economy. That is just the fact of the matter? We import because we have to in order to meet the rediculious 20 million a barrel day habit we have. So take ANWAR, wow, a whole year and half of oil… if we could pump it that fast. Or, the ‘New’ Alabama feild which hold maybe 700 million barrels, yep, 35 days of oil.

            Change is comming, because as of yet, we have nothing to replace the energy source called petroleum.

            So though I agree, I would change your good statement by saying “securing ourselves in a sustainable manner until the worst is over.” That will enable us to 1, live, 2 have resources to live on, and 3, fix the problems of the last three thousand years, or so.

      • I think you are mistakenly interpreting Ron Paul’s desire to get our military out of unnecessary foreign entanglements to be weakness or cowardice. My impression of Ron Paul is that he views the military as the force for national *defense*, not attack (only in Amerika is the Department of ‘Defense’ responsible for making war on the world and conquering them). Ron Paul, I’m sure, is well aware of the threat posed by the likes of North Korea & Iran, but also knows we are not morally justified in attacking them unless they attack us first.

        Trying ‘preemptive’ strikes such as you seem to be enamored with is what got us into the quagmires in Iraq & Afghanistan with no hope of success and no end in sight. Such foreign entanglements have done nothing to improve our security — quite the contrary, they have only succeeded in angering even more people and creating more terrorist minded individuals.

        Remember the Dept of Defense is for *defense*. That is, the military should be responsible for ensuring our borders and citizens are protected in the event that another country actually attacks us. Any time the military makes an unprovoked invasion (see Iraq), we have lowered ourselves to the level of the terrorists. We should have more honor than that, and I believe Ron Paul wants this country to be honorable once more.

Few of our federal elected officials know the US Constitution as well as Dr. Paul. He’ll get my vote when the moment arrives.

        Sorry, but I don’t know where your brain is. You say things about RP that just aren’t true. Do you think all the worldwide meddling we do equals security? What RP would do would enhance our national security. What we do now is stir it up so we can do false flag events and raise taxes in support of TSA and Fast&Furious gun running programs. Then when those all blow up they do patriot act crap.

I am truly saddened by that because I cannot seem to find a candidate I can vote for in 2012. At least not yet. Still shopping. And praying.

          Seriously, upset with his foreign policy? You mean bringing our boys and girls home. Not letting them be slaughtered for no real reason? We invaded Iraq that was pointless, Iran was and still is a more serious threat. But we cannot afford another war. We missed the shot and now we suffer for it. North Korea is more of a joke. They don’t have fuel for a war. Don’t believe all the hype.

          We don’t need 500+ bases world wide. We don’t need a huge standing military. We could do a lot with an almost all national guard, keep the marines as they are. Stand the army down, this way we can afford more and better equipment for them while reducing overall costs.

          Having a bomber wing on call 24/7 and a few fighters on each coast for intercepts would go a long ways too.

          Though, granted doing all this now would worsen the job situation at home, but we’re broke as we’re all about to find out.

          Now is Ron Paul the best person in the US for the job? Likely not. Is he one of the best options out of the retards we have running? Sadly, yes, I believe is the right answer.

        You will never, EVER convince a Paulista that there is anyone other than him that supports freedom and the constitution. They are already brainwashed zombies. Are there Ron Paul supporters that are NOT Paulistas? a few, but very few. Once they have grabbed hold a website, it goes downhill pretty fast. I hope that doesn’t happen here, cause there is certainly some useful information. The next few days will show whether or not there is a full-fledge infection. At that point, conversation is useless – you can only sng undying praise for Ron Paul….no different than the Obamabots.

          And that is a shame. I really believe in the constitution. At the same time I am sober enough to realize that RP doesn’t stand a chance of being elected. Heck, if I could snap my fingers and put a man in the oval office it would be Alan Keyes. He is, unlike RP, not afraid to insist the Obama be legally qualified under article two, section one.

          I would love to take RP’s input and help shape the policy of someone that might actually stand a chance of being elected but I am afraid you may be correct. It seems as though many place him on a pedestal as some kind od messiah that is beyond questioning. Any support for anyone else will automatically get you labled as a brainwashed neo con war monger supporting the corp.

          No, I am afraid that dialogue and learning from one another will have to wait until everyone has had their fill of blood & guts. I wonder, if RP passed away who would be the next messiah?

          Is the corp the fed? The CFR? The Bilderbergers? The UN? The communists? The Trilateral commission? The Democrat party? Some or all of the above?

          I used to think I had it figured out as the bankers but just like Robert Welch changed his mind from commies to a global conspiracy my fifteen year study causes me to think that only Satan has the ability to keep this thing alive for so many generations.

        Jim, it appears as though you believe in the fictional enemies created by the corp.

        We have nothing to fear from any other country, especially Iran and North Korea. All they want from us is to be left alone. They seek (or obtained) their nukes as a deterrent to the corps force, for their defense against the corp. They don’t hate us, they hate the corp that has taken over our country and threatens their country. If only the American people would rise against the threat, the very same corp, the world would live in relative peace.

        As Rothschild said, if his sons wanted no war, there would be no war. So long as the banking establishment wants war, there will be war. And so long as the banking establishment own the United States, it will be waged with that army.

        Our job as people is to remove the banking power that initiates the wars for profit and destruction so they can finance the war effort and rebuilding.

        What about China, Russia, Pakisan, India and Israel? Lets go afer them too while we are at it. They could nuke us just as easily as Iran. What do you plan on doing to Iran (who has no ongoing development of nuclear weapons now)? They have done nothing to us. You want sanctions. That is an act of war. You want to go to war about what someone might do in the future? Are you crazy? Maybe some one else is just as frightened of us, and for good cause, because of the way we behave. Should they go to war with us to prevent what we minght do? Our national security would be better served if we would mind our own business rather than trying to be the policemen of the world. Our military personel are being misused. How is what we are doing different than any other agressor nation in history? Plus in case you havn’t noticed, we are broke.

But I bet you still think we are fighting wars to free the people of those nations. These nations hate us because we ilegally declared war and invaded their countries based on lies, just like the Gulf of Tonkin. And even if 9/11 wasnt a false flag by our govt, then it was a retaliation because we’ve been over their fucking with these people for decades, telling them how to live their lives, impossing sanctions, etc, thats why they hate us.

        Jim,

        I just can’t buy your argument with regards to the reference to Chamberlain and appeasement. Before I set the record straight I would like to remind you that is very easy to armchair quarterback the game when you, yourself, are not within striking range of the Germans. Chamberlain, unfortunately, was within striking range of the Germans.

        Chamberlain went to Munich with the knowledge that war with Hitler would guarantee the destruction of the British Empire. He knew that bombs would be falling on London, not in months but in weeks. He knew this because had been informed so by his military officers.

        Look, Great Britain barely (and I mean barely) won the air war with Germany. Read about it here http://youtu.be/c55ybIOGEeU You’ll see that Great Britain was barely able to keep Hitler from destroying all of Southern England. Had Hitler won that air war, England would have been out of the war long before the attack on Pearl Harbor.

        Chamberlain knew that the only option was to keep Hitler happy and to his credit, Chamberlain kept Hitler away long enough for England to mass produce the aircraft they needed to defend themselves. Churchill didn’t put his foot down until he had assurances from the military that they could defend the islands. Still, it wasn’t a foregone thing.

        Finally, when I think about Chamberlain, I think about the crowds waiting for him – cheering.

          I’m pretty sure RP knows 9/11 was an inside job. He came out and said that the 9/11 Commission Report was a joke.

          Also, Ron Paul is on The Alex Jones show at least once a month. Jones is known as the “Grandfather of 9/11 Truth”. RP and AJ are also friends.

          RP can’t speak on 9/11 truth because the MSM would demonize him even more.

          However, traitors like the Bushes will be out of the country if RP somehow won the presidential nomination. Same with Billy Clinton regarding Oklahoma City bombing.

          Sadly, I think there will be another false flag that will further dumb down the sheeple. Thus RP would have no chance.

      Has anyone looked into Ron Paul’s position on illegal immigration?

      He has a book out, Liberty Defined: “50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom.”

      Tom Tancredo in a World Net Daily article critiqued Paul’s comments on illegal immigration and it is very disheartening.

      “…According to Paul, deporting such people would be “incompatible with human rights.” That is an off argument for any true libertarian to make, since the protection of true human rights begins with the U.S. Constitution and our ability to enforce the rule of law.

      The truth is that we do not need to deport all illegal aliens to make them go home. If we simply prevent employers from hiring illegal aliens by using E-Verify and step up interior enforcement as Arizona, Oklahoma and other states have done, most illegal aliens will go home on their own.

      Paul comes out against both these policies. He not only opposes the E-Verify program, he even comes out against all laws that prohibit employers from hiring illegal aliens. To make his point even more dramatic, he absurdly calls the idea of fining employers for hiring illegal aliens “involuntary servitude.”

        Immigration policy is one of the few areas that I have a problem with pure libertatianism as a political ideology. It is my understanding (anyone may correct me if I am mistaken) that rather than serious border or workplace law enforcement the libertarian would simply ensure that there were no benefits available to cause the illegal immigrant to sneak over the border in the first place. While this may work in theory I do not ever see the American people as being capable of having a policy in which hospitals or ambulance personnel question the financial ability of someone that is injured and refuse to provide life saving services because the person lacks insurance and funds.

        If I were CinC and I was absolutely convinced that a rogue nation or terror group was definitely going to detonate a WMD on the American people I would authorize preemptive action to prevent it. Nation building is a completely different animal.

        Even on the site there is a considerable amount of discord regarding the possibility of a Ron Paul presidency. My position is that we elect the most extreme candidate possible that is capable of winning the election. That said, I do not believe Zero has even a miniscule chance of retaining his perch as resident. Between F&F, a forged birth certificate, SSAN fraud, cash for tweakers, er clunkers and his gloriously stupid utterances regarding economic matters only the truly moronic could even think about casting a vote for the racist pig squatting in the White House.

          Regardless of the lack of constitutional authorization for most government programs the reality is that the American people are not going to embrace a system that allows / demands the sick be turned from hospitals, the hungry forced away without food and the naked denied clothes. I fully well understand charity however the American people desire and are willing to provide a basic level of assistance. It is the reality of mathematics that the taxpayer cannot afford to provide this basic level of service to every single non citizen from every country south of the border.

          I am aware of the fallacy of the “general welfare” clause as an excuse to do everything. I am also willing to see the truth that Americans want that basic level of security and they will not be convinced otherwise.

          We must have some sort of solution.

          I totally agree with you about ending the welfare and medical benefits for the illegals, but even if you did this, they would still be taking jobs from out of work Americans. I now believe that out of work Americans have now been so thoroughly humbled by long term unemployment that they will now take those jobs that only illegals would do a few years ago. 9.5% unemployment has changed that equation.

          Agree with putting the right person in the job – but it never seems the right person shows up – or want’s the job

          Illegal immigration and giving amnesty is a deal breaker for me – for it comes with disregard of not only our immigration laws, but throughout all aspects of our culture and lifestyle. Illegals thumb their nose at our laws and rules. They steal our treasury and demand citizen rights. They are 30-35 million strong and our response to this invasion is to be polite.

          Then it turns out Ron Paul’s position is the same on this issue, be polite. Paul’s proposal “…Maybe a ‘green card’ with an asterisk could be issued.” This “asterisk” would deny them welfare and not grant them immediate “automatic citizenship…”

          Never mind they are working our jobs and getting government entitlements plus $10,000 tax returns every friggin year. ($20,000 total because Mom is claiming the same number of dependents the government does not illegals to document.) AND we just be polite.

Fortunately, my employers ABSOLUTELY will not hire illegal aliens. On the other hand, they have hired ex-cons, sex offenders, and generally sorry excuses for workers. Some of our employees had to come to work with the “ankle-bracelet” on. That makes it difficult (and sometimes dangerous) for those of us who are semi-upstanding citizens.

I live in California and back when I was in my teens and 20′s I worked fast food, cleaned hotel rooms, even had a paper route. Now I cannot get a job like that because I am not bi-ligual. Hell, I can’t even get a BETTER job than that because Im not bi-lingual.

    29. Follow Up,

      Well I knew my lead balloon would not be popular here, but thanks to many willing to discuss rather than just rant. It makes for a learning opportunity rather then a blame, deny, duck and weave game our current politicians play.

      Ron Paul does not, IMHO, belong on the Republican ticket. He is a libertarian running as a Republican because he can’t win the white house as a libertarian. He is free to do so, but its not honest to me. It is misleading – something he often accuses others of being.

      I’d gladly see our country withdraw from Iraq. Afghanistan not so much so long as al queda persists on training people in the area. Syria would be a huge mistake and Libya was a huge mistake. I’m not for closing all of our bases around the world, but a lot of them fine! And yes I’d rather see our military pound someone before we get pounded ourselves. Sorry I like my house and don’t want to see it blown up because some politician put his head in the sand and said we will only respond to violence not prevent it.

      Puals issue on Illegal Aliens bothers me too, but not nearly as much as his Mr. Chamberlin approach to national security. Yes I know the people of Iran are good people, but they are not in charge and will do what those in charge demand of them. That includes killing Americans, Israelis and others from free nations. Ignoring them is not going to make them go away, and watching them build nuclear weapons when we could stop them is treasonus to me. Again read the Govt report quoted in “One Second Later” and recognize 3 nuclear weapons could lead to 90% of our nation dying. There is no reason to allow that to happen when it can be prevented.

      I don’t expect Ron Paul to modify his views, but if he did on immigration and national security I’d likely support him. Those two are too big for me to ignore, and the reason I’d never vote for him.

            POA

            The corp was originally established to be the municipal government of the District of Columbia in 1871. The current UCC identifies it (the United States) as located in the District of Columbia. It was the exact same as the government of the Republic, ie the sitting officials began serving a dual purpose. I also believe it adopted the lawful constitution as it’s own, but that is not plain in the record.

            Over time, mainly through the use of Social Security numbers and other “benefits fraud”, the people were convinced to sign up for the benefits offered to employees of the corp under private law and register their property to it, even their “biological property” (children). If you have or use a SSN, you are a card carrying member of the corp an subject to all of it’s resolutions as an officer or employee.

            In legislative matters, “laws” passed by the corp were identified as HR (house resolution) instead of HB (house bills). A bill is an effort to pass a Constitutional law, whereas a resolution is corporate policy.

            The corp was officially bankrupted in 1933 and all assets were placed in receivership to the creditors. That is why the gold was confiscated, to discharge the bankruptcy to the extent possible. From that moment forward, the federal gov corp has been under private control in a bankruptcy proceeding under international law, with the banksters as receivers.

            When all lawful methods of funding (silver coinage) were removed from the people and the states, they could no longer “pay” any debts (1968) in lawful money, they were constitutionally bankrupt as well. They became federal corporations and divisions of the corp identified by Social Security divisions layed out in the Buck Act. Federal states, as opposed to sovereign.

            Now, in order to “contract” with the corp or receive it’s protection, SSN’s are required as proof that you are the subject of the bankrupted corp and can legally participate as an officer in the discharge of the bankruptcy and legally domiciled in the District of Columbia, thereby subject to its policy.

            The state courts exist only to discharge the bankruptcy of the participating State of Corps, divisons of the United States. The proof is that nothing settled in a court is paid, merely discharged through commercial paper (FRNs). Try bringing the Constitution into one and getting lawful money awarded if you doubt that fact.

            There is significantly more to the story, and the majority of it is in the Congressional records of the depression era and earlier, but that is the nutshell version.

            The corp is private and supported by it’s own officers and employees, using it’s own private debt currency. It has convinced (forced) the people of the Republic to act in that capacity voluntarily. That is the significance of using an SSN to gain privilege (license) and the registration of private of property.

            ALL “persons” who hold a SSN are required to have their legal domicile in the District of Columbia, where the Constitution does no apply but corporate policy does.

            It is no game, and the until the people wake up and understand what is going on and why, there is little hope of change.

            A lot of good info is available at

            http://www.sedm.org

            You will NEVER see a class at an accredited institution that teaches the truth of this matter. They are all accredited by the corp hiding the facts from the people, and only exist to train people to apply the policies of the corp.

            I know I preach a lot about the corp, what it is, and what it is doing to the people. But if I can help to wake up a few people to the REAL problem and identify the REAL enemy, perhaps the people will be able to overcome the fraud they have been victimized by their entire lives without even realizing it.

            The facts are what they are. If I told you a dog was a squirrel, and over time got everybody else to refer to the dog as a squirrel, the dog is still not a squirrel.

            That is where we are today. Everybody calls the corp a government, but that still does not make it one. It is a bankrupted corporate entity, without legal standing outside of its private affairs dealing with it’s own officers and employees.

            For the record, before the days of fiat currencies, corporations were given charters to do certain things in the public interest. Those charters expired upon completion of the job.

            Corporations became dangerous when they became perpetual.

            The corp I am referring to is the bankrupted municipal government of the District of Columbia, established in 1871, that is held in receivership by the Federal Reserve Bank to the benefit of its private shareholders.

            The UN, CFR, Bilderbergs, etc, are merely the organizations of the banks that oversee and control the operations of the corp on behalf of the receivers.

            The perpetual private corp, the United States, is only allowed to exist as long as it can discharge its debts to the bankers in a way that profits them. As we approach the time when it can no longer do so, the plug will be pulled.

            That time is rapidly approaching.

            How would you feel if that statistically insignificant victim were you or a loved one. My father became one of those statistically insignificant victims to the involved legal fiction. He was no such thing to me, yet you are protecting his killer because it is a corporation.

            What you seem to be implying is that it is fine for a legal fiction to kill people, so long as it does not do it too often or only kills those statistically insignificant and not close to you. Doesn’t it concern you in the least over 100,000 people die EVERY YEAR by “used as prescribed” drugs from these killer corporations?

            You really should understand the corp and it’s purpose. To protect men against liability for their own acts, even if they know them to be wrong and injurious.
            That limited or non existent liability is the very root of the problem. Anybody can do anything and the victim can never recover anything from the actual criminal.

            If you do something to me, at the very least I should be able to beat the crap out of you. But you can never do that with a fiction.

          I don’t get a twitter! Its all I can do to keep from getting a match to burn the damned thing! Its not my flag and its not your flag! Its the flag of an occupying force. Only morons think otherwise.

          Besides that, even without the fringe, the stars and stripes is a war flag, not a civil flag. It indicates admiralty law (some call it martial law or the uniform commercial code [UCC]). I just call it Anti-America, Anti-Liberty and criminal.

          The only flag even close to something you should salute, put your hand over your heart or say a pledge to is a true American Flag. …and I’ve never seen one. They’re 1:1.8, almost twice as long as they are wide. Everything else is a war flag and represents the corporate UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, not the constitutional united States of America.

          We’ve all been brainwashed too much to know the difference. …and if you study international law, if you permit a flag to fly and respect it, you must obey its laws. Its why I only fly a Civil Flag, the flag of The Constitution.

          The corporate fiction you obey as your government is nothing but a corporation that has usurped your constitutional government. They make no laws, but codes and statutes under the color of law. They insult the law and everything the law is about.

          Get a clue. Do some studying. You can’t fix whats broke if you don’t know whats wrong with it. RP would prolong the operation of the corporation but, the death spiral has begun and will not stop regardless. I sometimes wonder if hoping for a Ron Paul win is simply hoping to prolong the misery, the madness and the criminal behaviour. Even a man with a clear understanding can’t fix it. Frankly, if they don’t convert RP, they’ll promptly kill him.

            GC & NR,
            I would like honest answers to the following questions. You are, obviously, underno obligation to answer but I would appreciate no answer better than a dishonest answer.

            1. Do you have a SSAN?

            2. If not, did you have one before? How did you get rid of it?

            3. Do you have a (generally accepted as) legal income?

            4. Have you filed tax returns every year?

            5. Do you own property within the US?

            6. Depending on you answers above, have you ever been involved a trial regarding your income tax liability?

            7. Have you ever served in the US Military?

            POA, here are some answers for you

            1. Do you have a SSAN?

            The only place that has SSN’s in the Social Security Administration. You are allowed only to use them under privilege, when conducting business on behalf of the United States, as a trustee over the account.

            2. If not, did you have one before? How did you get rid of it?

            Again only the SSA has the numbers. If you wish to get rid of it, just quit using it.

            3. Do you have a (generally accepted as) legal income?

            I assume you are referring to wages as defined in the Internal Revenue codes. “Wages” are very clearly defined to be ONLY money earned under a form W-4 with a Social Security Number attached.

            I have no income attached to a SSN or earned under a form W-4. All of my income is lawfully earned, not under franchise or privilege.

            4. Have you filed tax returns every year?

            I have filed a tax return for every year in which I had a tax liability :-)

            5. Do you own property within the US?

            All property of my family is held in private trust, or other lawful means of protecting my families privacy and property from fraudulent claims against it.

            6. Depending on you answers above, have you ever been involved a trial regarding your income tax liability?

            You assume I must have a tax liability, and that I have somehow committed a crime concerning that liability that would warrant a trial.

            That same assumption about yourself is probably costing you a fortune.

            7. Have you ever served in the US Military?

            No, God did not grant me the authority to murder, or participate in the murder, of innocent people he created equally to me.

            I hope that answers your questions.

            Good point. Probably the only think that will “fix” the USA is a total collapse and a revolution with the USA breaking up into mulitple countries: constitutional minded people congregating in certain parts of the country and socialists/big government statists congregating somewhere else.

            The sheeple are too ignorant and selfish, the media is too corrupt, and our leaders are too corrupt. I don’t think this is fixable without a total systemic failure.

(d) He’s a Libertarian and I observe most Libertarian are just as dangerous as the Democrats (abortion on demand, gay rights, drugs for everyone who wants, etc.).

          Francis bartholomew ooblek- You poor sick puppy. I don’t agree with all of chowthen’s opinions either, but I wouldn’t say crazy stuff like “…you are in my sites when tshtf.” And then to assume someone is a Christian because they don’t support abortion on demand or gay rights, and then to attack the religion is a sure sign of you bein’ in need of some ‘anger management’ therapy. And, your remarks show that you know nothing of the Christian faith. Boy, it’s best to at least know something about one side or the other before jumping into an argument.
          Option #1 for your anger management treatment would be to come on over to the okie compound and we’ll feed you some barbeque and beer. If that don’t mend your attitude, we have other methods too. We’ll give you banjo lessons and make you listen to 4 straight hours of Conway Twitty- it softens the brain into a very malleable state for reprogramming. From your posts, you obviously need it.
          Me, I happen to be a Christian, but I’m still enough of a sinner to offer Option #2 if needed. It’s real quick and simple and involves me putting a size 12 steel-toed boot in your ass. If you need help, call your gay friends at the abortion clinic- I got a boot for them too!

            Blind faith has no reason to exist, (other than control) and IS why we have the problems we do. You all are hurt by my words because you are in love with your religion, not god. You are in love with the man-made tradition, not god. I hurts me to here folks speak so clearly and intellectualy of collapse but ignore so blatently the other ten blankets on their heads.

It’s my responsibility as a human being to show the “the way” “the light”, and I cannot do so by being all oochy-goochy-cooo, no one can.

            ONLY, traditional Bible thumpers hate gays and abortion, ONLY. For those lies come only FROM the Bible, not the natural laws that we must live by.

            We live in the greatest times ever known, it is our responsibility to wake others up as quickly as possible. I have found no better way yet, than to scare them, scorn them, and then dismiss them to their doom if they choose ignorance!

      Diebold entered this industry in 2001 by purchasing the assets of Global Election Systems which had been selling election equipment since 1991. This subsidiary has been the subject of controversy amid allegations surrounding the security and reliability of some of its products.

      Surprised?

      oh and before i forget Walden O’Dell the chief executive of Diebold, said he had been a top fund-raiser for President George W. Bush and had sent a funds letter to 100 wealthy and politically inclined friends in the Republican Party, to be held at, where? his home! in a suburb of Ohio.

          You get to own precious metals, but not use them for money as the Law requires.

          You get to work in the industry of your choice, so long as you do so as an officer of the corporation and pay it the franchise taxes for the privilege, (SS, IRS, etc), that are proof positive of your slave status.

          You get to own land so long as you pay the corp its taxes for the privilege of doing so. Otherwise, the true owner will come and remove you by force.

          You get to travel freely, so long as you register your mode of travel as corp property, and also register yourself as a corp property, and purchase insurance so you legally travel under limited liability as an officer of the corp and it is protected (at your expense) while doing so.

          You get to speak your mind, but only if you don’t mind being added to the growing number of corporate watch lists used to track it’s slaves.

          Etc., Etc., Etc.

          It has been said that the saddest of all situations a man can find himself in is living in slavery while thinking he is free.

          Of that, you are the prime example.

          Of course, to other Men, who recognize the Law and what treason really is, your support of the corp and voluntary participation alone makes you a traiter to the Constitution and the People who accept it as Law over the corp.

          The good news, Jim, is that you can not be guilty of treason because slaves can not commit treason. You may not be much of a Citizen for the Republic, but you are certainly a well trained slave for the corp.

        The only thing you can do is withdraw from participation in the system. Quit asking it for permission to do things. Quit using it’s numbers and sending it your money. When enough have done that, it will hasten the collapse and weaken it to the point that it can be controlled. Only then once control of the money supply has been taken back from the bankers.

        Other than that, there is nothing you can do.

        The corp does not exist, therefore can not be killed. The best you can do is stay out of it’s way as it dies a horrible commercial death.

        Ignore it’s officers if they approach you. Do not approach them. Do not use it’s numbers or associate yourself with it.

        Then you will know freedom and actually have something worth protecting if it ever does come to you.

      Taking care always to keep ourselves, by suitable establishments, on a respectable defensive posture, we may safely trust to temporary alliances for extraordinary emergencies.
      Washington

      The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connexion as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop.
      Washington
      “I am for free commerce with all nations; political connection with none; and little or no diplomatic establishment”

      JEFFERSON
      “To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving the peace.”
      JEFFERSON

      ” Having seen the people of all other nations bowed down to the earth under the wars and prodigalities of their rulers, I have cherished their opposites, peace, economy, and riddance of public debt, believing that these were the high road to public as well as private prosperity and happiness.”

      Large and permanent military establishments
      which are forbidden by the principles of free government,
      and against the necessity of which the militia

      James Madison

      “The most successful war seldom pays for its losses.”
      Jefferson

      The above are some of what a few of our founders had to say about war/standing armies and such…it appears to me that Ron Paul is in pretty good company,defending America is good and proper,having to police the world by having a huge global force flies in the face of liberty and makes us servents to “Keeping the peace”…war sucks…being over-run and conquered sucks more…of course we need deterent and we should always be ready to fight to defend our way of life but saying that a person is out of touch in their foreign policy if they want to stop this military complex is dishonest and frankly stupid, you simply make sure we can respond to any attack in such a way that no one would want to risk another.
      No one is suggesting eliminating our ability to make war(except liberals)…simply saying that this whole sytem is out of sync with what it should be and needs fixed.
      And as far a being libertarian in his views my question is why are you not if love liberty?
      A majority of our founders would fit the discription of libitarian in its purest form.
      I like RP personally and have found him to be honest and consistent in his views…is he our nest President?…not likely because too many Americans have a knee jerk reaction to true liberty…to really making America function in the manner which our founders intended…too many even in the freedom movements are one issue voters,one track thinkers…they agree and shout “AMEN” to 9 of your points but its that 10th issue that in the next breath they are damning you to hell for….at this rate “a worse than obama cometh”
      People really need to stop and think about what this nation is supposed to be and defend not only their rights but everybody elses(real rights,not BS ones)
      Just my thoughts! Thanks!

        I wish I had a spare three to four hours to devote to this article… Bottom line, folks:
        1) Ron Paul is not electable. His age and views on foreign policy will scare to many centrist Republicans. Please feel free to vote for him in the primaries. It will help push the Republican party to a more libertarian viewpoint. Hold your nose and vote for whoever the Repubs put up. I know. I know. I just about puked pulling the lever for McCain. But maybe, just maybe, the Repub nominee can beat Obama and get the budget balanced. We can argue legalizing drugs and the finer points of libertarianism later. The DEBT is the 800 lb gorilla in the room. The country is sinking fast because of it.
        2) I love the quotes above. Kudos to REB. You have to put things in perspective, however. Our Founding Fathers were deeply influenced by The French and Indian War. In the simplest of terms, they thought Britain was empire building and wanted the colonists to help pay for it. They hated standing armies because of the expense and they thought there was no reason to quarter full-time troops in the colonies. They were right. We were pretty much the backwater of the world at the time.
        3) Side note: Jefferson wanted a horribly weak central government and a purely agrarian economy. He was kind of the ‘hippy’ of his day. His vision for America would never have survived. And, by the way, JEFFERSON was the first President to get us into a “foreign adventure” by declaring war on the Barbary Pirates and sending the Marines… to the shores of Tripoli. Sorry, had to throw that in there.
        4) Flash forward 200+ years. The 20th century, especially WW II, irrevocably changed the U.S. We became the world’s largest economy and the ‘arsenal for democracy’. After defeating fascism, we became engaged in defeating communism. If we had ignored the communists and gone home after WW II, they would have taken over all of Western Europe, possibly Japan, and the world would be much, much different today. That brings us to today. Do we have to have our noses in everything? Absolutely not. But as the lone superpower, we are expected by other countries to help govern and police the world. We can, and must, lower expectations in this area, but you can’t do it all at once. Like it or not, we have the largest economy in the world and the largest military. We are expected by other nations to be ‘involved’. We can move towards isolationism again, but this country will never be truly ‘isolationist’ again. We’re too big and the world’s become much, much smaller.
        5) When the global economies collapse, all this goes out the window anyway. BTW, Dow is set to plunge today. Gold is over $1800 oz. Isn’t fiat currency and runaway debt grand?
        Have a wonderful day,

          I don’t lke certain things about Perry, and I don’t like certain things about Romney and those two are the most electable. Bachmann won’t make it, she’s flaming out and will likely shoot for the VP slot, with a more moderate person in the number one slot. I like Gary Johnson, but he’s getting no traction, Santorum will likely be out after New Hampshire, maybe SC, depending on his $$. Gingrich, while super-intelligent and a great debator, and would eat Obama alve in a one-on-one, I think his time in office is over, and that’s OK with me. I hope that Trump doesn’t get back in as either an I or an R, although he would add some entertainment value. Herman Cain, I thought would be a great candidate, and he still could be, but he doesn’t have his sea-legs, yet, and he’s probably not PC enough to get the moderate vote. But he could take the race issue off the table, and he knows something about taking a failing entity and making it prosperous. RP is dead on, regarding the Fed, the printing of money, inflation, etc. But I don’t see him ever being taken seriously on the world stage -standing up to a Putin or Achmadinejad, for example. And I would like to see him actually accomplish something with regard to the Fed, since he’s the head of the oversight committee, and I haven’t seen him do squat, which has been very disappointing…and if that hurts your feelings, I’m sorry, you need to toughen up.

      She tells her son, ‘The bigger they are, the sillier the lady is.’
      The boy, pleased with the answer, goes to play in the ocean but returns to tell his mother that many of the men have larger things than his dad does.
      She replies, ‘The bigger they are, the dumber the man is’
      Again satisfied with her answer, the boy goes back to the ocean to play.

      Well Mac, I think you have most effectively accomplished your objective by eliciting the responses to your question. In reading them, it’s very evident that there are some exceptionally angry people out there, with every right to be. What seems to be missing though is rational thought by some.

      I like Ron Paul, but I don’t believe he is Presidential material. I believe he would make an outstanding Secretary of the Treasury, but from what I’ve observed, he would have too many problems as the President. Don’t get me wrong – if it came down to him or the sewage currently polluting our Executive mansion, it would be Ron Paul, hands down. But Paul is a bit too peevish for my liking, a tad bit too naive on foreign affairs, and somewhat unrealistic when it comes to domestic policy. I loved the way he put Chris Wallace in his place, and I admire the way he stands up to establishment issues in general, but he has some weaknesses that he either needs to work on or drop out.

      I don’t claim to have a corner on wisdom or virtue or any of the other stuff that people look for in order to judge whether they want to agree with me or not. But I do think about things before I open my mouth or bang away at my keyboard here. I act on impulse only when I’m standing in line at the store and see something there that I think I might like to have. Otherwise, I try to use the analytical ability God gave us all to enable us to make wise and prudent decisions. Okay, I got a big screen HDTV last Black Friday. Big deal.

      When I was in high school, I had my group of friends. There were a couple of them that I considered my “best” friends, and the feeling was reciprocated. I am still in contact with one of them, having lost track of the others, or lost them in Viet Nam. But I would do anything for my best friends – anything – including risk my life for them, and this too was reciprocated. In fact, there were some occasions when that element was actuated, and brought us closer as a result. We knew we could rely on each other, no matter what, and that we would never be alone to face things that could do us harm or cause us discomfort. We would die for each other. We would defend each other, regardless of the circumstances or the consequences. If there was some Billy Joe Badass who planned to come after one of us, he would need to know that to attack one would be tantamount to attacking all, or at least one (if the others were not around). We knew we could rely on that simple fact. The message was, essentially, “don’t mess with _______, ’cause if you do, you’re going to get your ass kicked by ________.” It was clear and simple. If even a threat was made, the one making the threat would have to know that making a threat against one was the same as threatening all. Retaliation would be swift and decisive, and it would be severe. Our friendships were not something to be taken lightly, or threatened without experiencing what would be disastrous results.

      Ron Paul has made it very clear that he would not do that. He has blatently stated that the big kid, the bully from the rival high school, could plan, threaten, and carry out if he so desired, an attack on one or more of our friends, even us. He has made it clear that if the bully wants to buy a gun and shoot one our best friends stone cold dead, it is really none of our business because there were others with guns so the bully has a right to have one also. The bully has made it clear that he intends to inflict bodily harm, death, on one of our best friends, and that he will use the most effective means at his disposal to carry out this threat. He’s stated that he has no fear of us, and that if we interfere in his plans, he will use his newly acquired gun on us.

      And anyone else who gets in his way.

      And Ron Paul, bless his heart and God bless his antipathy toward the Federal Reserve, says, “What business is it of ours? They have a right to have nuclear weapons! We have nuclear weapons, other countries have nuclear weapons, what right do we have in trying to prevent them from having nuclear weapons?”

      It’s known as “laissez faire”. Don’t interfere. Leave Iran alone. If we leave them alone, and stop trying to prevent them from developing or acquiring a nuclear weapon, they will . . . what? Leave us alone? Leave Israel alone? England? Europe? Everyone can join arms and sing kum-by-yah?

      I love George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and James Madison to death. I love those guys so much that whenever their names are mentioned, I feel a sense of pride and affection well up inside me, knowing that those guys were the ones who built our Republic, were willing to die to build it, and had such unbelievable courage and integrity. I love ‘em, but even they would have to admit that if we had not recruited an ally in France, we’d probably have had our asses handed to us, because the bully was bad ass, and he had guns and determination and a whole lot to lose.

      Allies. Someone who will help you out when the going gets tough. Someone you can rely on to stand behind you and frown at your enemy conveying the clear message that if you mess with my buddy, I’ll fuck you up.

      Paul says, “It’s not our business!” Well, he’s wrong. It is our business. He needs to either change his attitude and recognize that or he needs to retire to his practice in Texas, but he doesn’t need to be the President of the United States.

      From a spiritual as well as a diplomatic standpoint, our relationship with Israel and how we treat that nation can very well be the decisive and final element in whether we survive as a nation and preserve our honor or not. Ron Paul gets my vote when he states his stand on this issue and this issue alone.

        Yep, we should leave Iran alone. Stop listening to the news. Our CIA has even said that they are not a threat. You don’t think Israel would bring their nuclear program to a screeching halt if they had one. Who gives us the right to deny them nuclear power since they are not able to refine oil into gas. So who do you consider presidential material? Romney? Perry? Bachman? Obama? They’re all the same, whether they’re republicans or democrats, they have the same play book. Here let me prove it.
        Obama, democrat, they opposed the patriot act, wars, torture, Guantanamo. That was before he was president. Now we’re bombing the crap out of Libya & we’re in a secret war with Yemen. So secret that everybody I talk to says that’s b.s. Guantanamo is still open, the patriot act was passed again.
        The only reason we’re in the middle east is for the black gold. That’s why Africa is left alone. No oil, no protection. Iraq had wmd’s, so we killed over a million iraqi’s because Saddam was a danger to the stabilization of the region. The douche in Syria is doing the same thing Qadaffi was doing, but why aren’t we bombing Syria. Like I said before, one day we’re going to bomb the wrong country & God help us.
        Well I’m sorry if I rambled & I didn’t mean any disrespect. I know there’s only so much Ron Paul could do if elected, but I would love to see it. He definitely couldn’t do much worse.
        God bless

        you make me feel good, I’m 3 yrs younger than Paul and I plan on being here an easy fifteen yrs, Now if I’m here 15 more yrs, RP should be here a lot longer than that I as I’m sure he didn’t abuse his body the way I did mine the first 40 yrs.I’m med free, work in the woods everyday, have no problem walking twelve miles daily.I agree people our age have got a lot more time behind us than left in front but some people get smarter and stronger when they get older.Also he gets to pick his running mate and I’m sure it will not be a Biden or Kerry,Ryan,Romney or anyone who wants to just keep the statis quo going like the other candidates running will,America needs someone to stop this runaway train or the people are in for a very rough time for the next fifty yrs, not that they will not be anyway, but at least RP will be working for America and not who puts the most cash in his pockets
        I think many of the politicians spend most of their time worring about the lobbyists and which donner they pissed off,they also worry about the media and their public imgage. RP worries about neither as he stands by what he says and don’t back peddle to please anyone. Maybe they wouldn’t be so worn down if they were more like RP, get out of other countries, leave them alone,spend their time worrying about people here and working for this country

      The most frustratiing thing for me is the current tw@t squatting in the WH who flat out refuses to listen to the will of over 80% of the American people who do NOT want amnesty for illegals. Just today they announced they will halt ALL deportations for non criminals and then reward those who can stay with WORK PERMITS. They are taking it on a “case by case” basis.

        @NunJoBizness

        I too am frustrated for the same reasons. Especially on the folks who give illegals a pass. They say it is not the illegals fault they are using our rules and laws passed for citizens of this country to manipulate the same to their advantage enabling them to invade our country and rob our treasury. Really? Laws and rules are used to shackle the American citizen while the illegals values and culture allows them to steal and rob with impunity. They steal into the country, demand medical, education, welfare, housing, and our jobs. They ignore our culture, values and language. Illegals violate our rule of law which has made this the great nation it is with a law abiding civilized populace and country. Instead they bring with them a violent, criminal, thievery, bribery, third world values and lifestyle.

        It’s not the American citizen lying, stealing and falsifying documents to get the safety net meant for citizens and their dependents of this country. It’s not the American citizen disregarding our rule of law regarding registering and paying taxes for contracting and operating small businesses. It’s not the American citizen ignoring our motor and traffic regulations when it comes to licensing, insurance and operations. It’s not the American citizen abusing and overwhelming our health care facilities. It’s not the American citizen who fraudulently claim non citizen and non existent dependents to garner $10 – $20 thousand in tax dollars annually. It’s not the American citizen voting in a country where they are not entitled to vote.

        I’m beginning to think the American citizen is the fool here as we are allowing an invasion of a foreign populace without a whimper. There is no country without borders or a common language for commerce. It frustrates me that people do not see the danger to our children and grand children with unmitigated illegal immigration. How much unemployment of American citizens, whose jobs are being worked by illegals and thievery that drains billions from the treasury, will it take for some people to realize this is a major factor that impacts all aspects of the American citizen lifestyle – the economy, finances, business, housing, education and jobs.

        Before the haters jump on this post – this has been a compassionate country as we have granted three amnesty’s and not to mention citizenship to all the jack pot babies (illegal mom runs for the border and pops out the baby on American soil entitling the kid to all America has to offer). Everyone is quoting Ronald Reagan now, in his memoirs he says his biggest mistake was granting illegals amnesty. When is enough – enough?

        So I don’t understand why Ron Paul and his supporters don’t value the constitutional importance of this issue. There is meaning in being an American Citizen. (not resident or undocumented worker or voter.)

          Ladyhawk… Ive said I like Paul,I do however agree with you on the issue of “illegals”( this is one of those things that though I may disagree with RP about it I wont toss him under the John Deere over it,hard to find anyone to agree with all the time and if I did I would need to examine my thinking)the short of it being we do have to have and protect a border of some kind or we cease to be who/what we are and we allow those coming in here to redefine who/what we are.
          I am hopeful that RP or anyone having the same basic views who became President would in short order reconsider his/her position on this issue.
          I have little problem with proper immigration except I do wonder if there comes a point where we need to crimp it down to almost nothing….we arnt exactly needing more people here these days…but especially people who do not have the same love of liberty and the rule of law that most native born sons/daughters have for this piece of ground we call America.
          The point I guess is this…RP isnt perfect….but I see no one who has his track record and his fight…and he certainly beats the crap outta barry…I think he’d at least try to work on real solutions to the nations troubles in a freedom minded manner…we know what we have now…I personally think we can afford to let him(or someone similar) try,either that or keep barry.

            @REB

            NunJoBizness, you and some others bring up good points over the matter. Ron Paul’s proposed solution to the illegal problem is “…Maybe a ‘green card’ with an asterisk could be issued.” This “asterisk” would deny them welfare and not grant them immediate “automatic citizenship…” Notice no mention about not being able to vote. (Checking a box on your drivers license application or presenting a utility bill lets you vote in my state – damn Progressives.)

            Allowing the 30 – 35 million illegals to stay is amnesty and the latest a-hole policy will only encourage more. So I propose when talking about supporting Ron Paul, add an asterisk behind his name. Why wait till he is President and “hope” he will change his position. I’m so done with this hope and change shit.

            Hey Ron Paul* – get the message! It’s not just the Federal Reserve and economy – the country is being invaded and divided.

      Copied from a reply By G Edward Griffin on the front page of Freedom Force International:

      have listened to the conference call as you suggested and learned nothing new over and above what I have read from many others who follow the Strawman/Bankruptcy/Admiralty Law hypothesis. Everything said about the Federal Reserve is basically true, but it is a giant leap to accept the validity of all the rest. I previously have examined the documents Sharon mentioned and, as I recall, found nothing in any of them that confirmed the hypotheses – except by the most creative interpretation. I am afraid all of this is just a dead end that leads people into an endless loop of fighting a phantom that doesn’t exist when we have very real enemies in the form of the Federal Reserve and a corrupted government.

      You said: “the freedom community needs to accept the truth and facts and create a plan of action based on reality.” I agree totally, but what would that plan be? How would it be any different than abolishing the Federal Reserve and the IRS, returning to a sound money, and replacing corrupted government officials? If that is the solution, then why spend time in a legal wonderland that not one in ten-thousand has any chance of comprehending? Is there any better plan to turn people off of the topic and, thus, turn them away from a solution? It seems to me that crusading under the Strawman banner is well calculated to insure our defeat. Why not just stick with the easily understood and easily proven facts? That’s what Ron Paul is trying to do and, judging by the groundswell of support he is getting, it is a very wise strategy

        Exactly right.

        Most of those looking to defend themselves in the corp courts using the strawman/bankruptcy stuff is crazy. No matter how true it may be, and how many questions that answers, a corrupted system will never recognize it’s own corruption.

        The only way to beat the corp is to ignore it. By showing up in a corp court, you are giving it consent to have it’s way with you. Don’t be surprised when it does.

        Do not speak even your name to it, or initiate or participate in any conflicts. Do not ask it for assistance or protection.

        And if ever forced into the court because of an unlawful arrest over a corporate policy, demand the contract be placed in the record that the charge is being made against. ALL statutory crimes are identified as commercial crimes, which require a valid contract.

        Don’t fight the corp. Just go about your business and ignore it. If it comes to you, do not speak. These are your rights, but only if you exercise them.
