How to build a dictatorship with the approval of the people

Mitchell’s laws:
●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor,
which ultimately leads to civil disorder.
●Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
●To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.
●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The penalty for ignorance is slavery.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive.

I previously had added this to the Comments section of the previous post. But on second thought, with the government’s over-the-top pursuit of Edward Snowden (for the crime of revealing the government’s crimes), I thought it deserved its own post:

The following letter was reprinted in the 6/24/13 Chicago Tribune:

The war on terrorism cannot be won. There always will be people who hate the U.S. So every day, the government will “have to” create some new restriction on our freedoms, justified by the never-ending war.

Today, the government tracks your Emails.
Tomorrow, the government reads your Emails.
The next day, the government reads your snail mail.
The next day, the government censors your snail mail.
The next day, the government plants listening devices in your office.
The next day, the government plants listening devices in your home.
The next day, the government bans criticism.
The next day, the government bans all criticism and arrests accused critics

Where does it end?

It doesn’t.

Each step is justified by “national sercurity.” Each day, the populace approves it because, “I have nothing to hide.”

And that is how all dictatorships are built — step by step, with the acceptance of the populace.

Monetary Sovereignty


Nine Steps to Prosperity:
1. Eliminate FICA (Click here)
2. Medicare — parts A, B & D — for everyone
3. Send every American citizen an annual check for $5,000 or give every state $5,000 per capita (Click here)
4. Long-term nursing care for everyone
5. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone. Click here
6. Salary for attending school (Click here)
7. Eliminate corporate taxes
8. Increase the standard income tax deduction annually
9. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99%

10 Steps to Economic Misery: (Click here:)
1. Maintain or increase the FICA tax..
2. Spread the myth Social Security, Medicare and the U.S. government are insolvent.
3. Cut federal employment in the military, post office, other federal agencies.
4. Broaden the income tax base so more lower income people will pay.
5. Cut financial assistance to the states.
6. Spread the myth federal taxes pay for federal spending.
7. Allow banks to trade for their own accounts; save them when their investments go sour.
8. Never prosecute any banker for criminal activity.
9. Nominate arch conservatives to the Supreme Court.
10. Reduce the federal deficit and debt

No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.
Two key equations in economics:
1. Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
2. Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption – Net Imports

  1. Obama, the “liberal.”

    Imagine what he would do if we were in a real war.

    EIGHT Whistleblowers Charged With Violating the Espionage Act Under Obama

    Prior to Obama taking office, only three people in total, Pentagon Papers whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg under Richard Nixon, Navy civilian analyst Samuel Loring Morison under Ronald Reagan, and Defense Department analyst Lawrence A. Franklin under George W. Bush, had been charged


  2. U.S. government going absolutely insane about the embarrassment Snowden has caused:

    McCain slams Putin on Snowden: Russia’s actions ‘reminiscent’ of Cold War

    “Most importantly to me, of course, and should be to the world, is their continued support of [Syrian President] Bashar al Assad and the massacre taking place in Syria.”

    McCain’s comments echoed what fellow U.S. lawmakers said about Putin on Sunday.

    “Putin always seems almost eager to stick a finger in the eye of the United States—whether it is Syria, Iran and now of course with Snowden,” New York Sen. Charles Schumer said.

    So, in addition to being a “traitor,” Snowden is as bad as Syria and Iran.

    The lesson to be learned: If you let the world know about illegal activities by our government, they will get you.

    Ecuador’s foreign minister, Ricardo Patiño, criticized the United States on Monday for its pursuit of Mr. Snowden. “The one who is denounced pursues the denouncer,” Mr. Patiño said at a news conference in Hanoi, Vietnam, a stop on a previously scheduled diplomatic visit to Asia. “The man who tries to provide light and transparency to issues that affect everyone is pursued by those who should be giving explanations about the denunciations that have been presented.”

    Amen, brother Patiño.
