What and who really runs this country (U.S.A.)?
MONEY controls this democratic republic; not the people, not the Constitution, not the three branches of government not any thing but MONEY. It sets the direction that this country is going. The political parties may have a minor influence but I trully believe it is only a minor one. What or who then controls, really controls this country; the answer is twofold 1) National monetary policy and 2) and reported in the Chicago Tribune (Sept. 4, 2012) the Bank of Bernanke. He, who works at the pleasure of the President is in reality probably the most powerful and influencial man in this country and maybe (at this time in our history) globaly. The institution he leads, the Federal Reserve, is in reality not a legitimate part of the governemt. It was created around 1914 to conduct a central banking business but in truth it has evolved or some think devolved into a non-governmental central planning committee to eventually control a socialist state that will control every aspect of your life...freedom as we know it today will have evaporated and only a virtul perception of it will still remain in some minor form to control the masses (units) of people. The freemarket will be a defunct entitiy...lost in some volume of American history on some dusty shelf or floating somewhere in cyberspace.
As F.A Hayak said in his book,The Road to Serfdom we must do away with a all encompassing central planning governement because as history has testified over the centuries one that does will eventually degrade into totalitarianism, loss of individual freedom and often the death of millions of people in order to maintain its agenda. I worry that if we go down the road of a single central system we will extinguish the flame of freedom and free markets and eventually the United States of America...and we will have done it to ourselves...no foreign invader needed.
