The people who claim the USA isn’t racist are the worst racists?

When one member of a group fails, the bigots will hate the entire group for this failure? If a group succeeds, the bigots will despise it for its success.

Liberals think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.

It takes two things to put people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed and the treachery of their leaders.

Hatred and fear are evil twins. It is impossible to hate someone without fearing them.

The brainless are too brainless to understand how little they know. The intelligent are smart enough to understand how little they know.

Dictators always claim that patriotism is obedience to them. Their disciples agree. Fake, hyperpatriots “love America,” but hate the Americans who disagree with them.

Loyalty, like obedience, usually is a one-way street. Divorce and dog leashes are proof.

A liar believes everyone is lying; a cheater believes everyone is cheating; a hater believes hatred is normal.

The more federal budgets are cut and federal taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes. No economy can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.

Many people expect the Federal Reserve to control inflation. But inflation is not a financial problem. Inflation is a scarcity problem that only Congress can fix.

It is easier to have sympathy than empathy. Actually, no one has empathy. “I feel your pain” is a lie.

We wish to distance ourselves from those below us on any social scale, while coming closer to those above. This is Gap Psychology.

Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor.

Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive always involves the Gap between the richer and the poorer.

The Gap is what makes the rich, rich. To widen the Gap, the rich can obtain more for themselves, or make sure the poor have less.

Everyone lies. Most of our lies are to ourselves.

No life form in the universe is less knowlegable than a voter.

Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

To survive long-term, a monetarily non-sovereign entity 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.

Where reality differs from belief, those who question least choose belief.

The more we learn,
the more we begin to see,
if we were tasked with building a universe,
this is the only way it could be.

In politics, people tend to support those who most resemble them. Women tend to support women. Blacks tend to support blacks; Jews tend to support Jews; Evangelicals tend to support Evangelicals; New Yorkers tend to support New Yorkers, Latinos tend to support Latinos; and stupid, immoral, close-minded, bigoted liars tend to support stupid, close-minded, immoral, bigoted liars. Know yourself by whom you follow.

Monetary Sovereignty Twitter: @rodgermitchell Search #monetarysovereignty Facebook: Rodger Malcolm Mitchell ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………


The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics. Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

  1. Eliminate FICA
  2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone
  3. Social Security for all
  4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
  5. Salary for attending school
  6. Eliminate federal taxes on business
  7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 
  8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
  9. Federal ownership of all banks
  10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.
