all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things,
shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will
render powerless the checks provided of one government on another
and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from
which we separated." —Thomas Jefferson to Charles Hammond, 1821.
few years, the same bleeding heart members of the Democratic/Communist
Party USA start beating the drum to raise the minimum wage. Factually
challenged bureau-rats in some state legislatures also want to
continue punishing the employer by passing higher minimum wages
in the private sector. Those mental midgets claim this will benefit
the worker. Nothing like twisting logic upside down to get more
votes and it's not just confined to Marxists. This is what a Republican
had to say a few years ago when raising the minimum wage was the
rage in the Outlaw Congress:
people like it or not, we need to go ahead with it," said Rep.
Mike Castle, R-Del., who supports the idea. "There's a general
agreement among Republicans (opposing the raise) that "maybe we
don't like it much, but we need to move forward with it just for
political reasons." So you see, this isn't caring about the little
guy, it's about politics and votes.
does the U.S. Constitution, Art. 1, Section 8, give Congress the
authority to dictate to any private employer what they can and
can't pay an employee? America is a free enterprise system. A
system driven by competition and hard work. Do most Americans
understand what Fascism is? Fascism is defined as a system of
government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator,
stringent socioeconomic controls; oppressive, dictatorial control.
For the federal government to centralize the labors of the common
man under laws that dictate socioeconomic controls is to strangle
free enterprise and competition.
in Congress can wrangle
about tax cuts for the rich and raising the minimum wage,
but it will NEVER cure the cancer, only prolong it. Those sandbaggers
in Congress are the ultimate liars who have led us down the path
of slavery and unless the people stop rewarding such deceit with
reelection, the game will go on with the losers being we the people.
I can tell you real men who birthed this republic would never
have allowed any Congress to get away with this type of oppression
and the deliberate destruction of a free enterprise system.
for "tax cuts for the rich", thieves like Nancy Pelosi, who has
a net worth of $58 million bux, might not be financially bothered
by paying more in taxes, but the common man is being destroyed
by them. Former Congressman Ron Paul introduced several bills
in the past that would boost the economy and create jobs through
spending. All ignored by those caring Republicans and Democrats
in Congress - including Nancy Pelosi and Dirty Harry Reid.
should be noted when Ron Paul introduced the TIPS act to help
the very people who make minimum wage and see their tips taxed,
there were more than 300,000 service workers in Dirty Harry's
own state of Nevada. Did he support the bill? Not a chance. The
bill died in committee - not a single Republican or Democratic/Communist
Party USA rat in the Outlaw Congress supported it.

receive tips would not pay federal income tax on them.
the silence from the thugs who run the SEIU (Service Employees
International Union birthed by the Communist Party International)
who don't give a tinker's dam about their members when those bills
were introduced and died? If they cared so much about their workers,
they would have fought to get Ron Paul's bill passed through Congress
because those bills - especially the TIPS Act - would have greatly
benefited their membership.
the gluttony of the bloated federal and state governments continues
to grow unchecked, the burden of taxation is killing off the middle
class; for those with a combined household income of less than
$35,000 a year, it literally is living one can of beans to the
next. Those ever so benevolent politicians with a Gestapo agency
like the IRS to carry out their dirty work, continue to upchuck
the only way to help those hard working folks who really do need
a break is to continue raising taxes for more useless federal,
state and county jobs that produce nothing and raise the minimum
wage level of pay.
stupidity actually hurts minimum wage workers. A sure recipe for
failure, but then again, most politician's thought process is
driven by campaign contributions and reelection. Politicians tend
to be weepy, cowardly, emotion driven creatures who can't seem
to help themselves.
those same career politicians sell financial poison, the reality
of raising the minimum wage tells a different story: Minimum
Wages and Unemployment: Case Closed - "In short, the preponderance
of the evidence over the last 75 years is that low-skilled jobs
(mostly held by the less-educated and less-skilled young and minorities)
are extinguished by government wage fixing."
have every respect for any individual who gives an honest day's
work for a day's wage. Traditionally in this country, workers
are compensated for their labor according to their skill, education
and experience. Minimum wage jobs were never meant to be a 'living
wage' because those are jobs that generally require little to
no experience, i.e. high school drop-outs, unskilled workers,
or by college students because of flexible schedules and retired
folks looking to supplement their retirement income and stay active.
Paying an entry level clerk, a hotel maid or burger flipper $100.00
an hour isn't going to solve the problem.
the endless confiscation of someone's hard earned labor via more
and more heavy, progressive taxation, the single biggest reason
why making the minimum wage $100.00 an hour isn't the solution
is the "Federal" Reserve. It's the devaluation of our currency
and the purchasing power of the "dollar" that is the problem.
An issue completely ignored by most adult aged Americans in
the owned by Wall Street Outlaw Congress did not abolish the unconstitutional
"Federal" Reserve six years ago when Ron Paul introduced a bill.
Hell, most of them had to be dragged kicking and screaming to
even sign on to a bill to audit the "Fed". As Dr. Edwin Vieira
wrote in one of his articles: The
Road Not Taken (Nov. 2011):
America finds herself once again lost in “the yellow wood” of
monetary chaos, at a point where “two roads diverge”—
road leads to “more of the same”—“monkey business as usual”, as
it were, both politically and economically—aimed at propping up
domestic as well as foreign zombie banks; subordinating the United
States Treasury to the cabals of private financial power-brokers
in New York and London; and, one may be assured, expanding the
fraud of irredeemable legal-tender paper currency to the supra-national
level, with a new “global currency” which will surely strip America
of her economic sovereignty, and likely will attenuate if not
eliminate her political sovereignty, too.
must not be enticed down that wrong road by the illusion that
we can convince Congress to reinstitute some kind of traditional
“gold standard” that pulls the Federal Reserve System from the
pit of its own incompetence, profligacy, and criminality, by somehow
returning Federal Reserve Notes to redeemability in gold
“Cross of Gold” address to this audience in October of 2010 said
all that needs to be said against the substance of proposals of
that kind. Of course, I shall be the first to commend the proponents
of such plans for their patriotism, imagination, courage, and
optimism. But, as General Sosobowski reputedly said when General
Browning reviewed the plan for the ultimately disastrous Operation
Market Garden: “I am thrilled that your great Field Marshall Montgomery
has devised such a plan. I promise you that I shall be properly
ecstatic if it works.”

same incumbents Americans keep reelecting over and over and over.
I urge you to take the time to read all of Edwin's column because
he provides the only solution left to us for our very survival.
and until Americans fully understand the disabilities of our monetary
system, they will continue to take the road to financial destruction
by demanding more Band Aids to "fix" the problem. Of course, this
requires an investment in time and the ability to understand the
subject matter. While no one likes to say it, tragically, we have
tens and tens of millions of adult aged Americans who are so
under educated, it's heart breaking. Graduating high school
seniors who read at seventh grade level. We've all seen clerks
at a grocery or convenience store who can't make change unless
the computer tells them the amount. So sad, but those who have
done their homework know it has all been by design.
knew nothing about the "Fed" and our debauched currency until
I was 40 years old when I was handed a book that had a lot of
information about it; that's where my journey began 23 years ago.
I read the chapters on the "Fed" and said, what a minute, that
can't be right. The "Federal" Reserve is part of our government.
After all, it's called the Federal Reserve! How wrong I was. Dozens
of books later, thousands of hours of reading them, Dr. Vieira's
tome, Pieces of Eight, as well as so many of his speeches, I learned
the truth about the central bank. It IS the head of the beast
dragging us over the abyss. A ravenous beast devouring everything
in its path, sucking the life blood of this country for 100 years

at all possible, get the single best DVD set I've ever seen for

Purse & The Sword. This is an eight hour presentation
by Dr. Edwin Vieira. Here are some of the reviews:
ONE needs to see this video!”
fantastic tool for tea party, constitutional, and home school
don't know how to give a higher rating to this video. Dr. Vieira
explains how the government and the people are to lawfully deal
with economic and homeland security issues. He has created a sort
of "visual constitution" through which it becomes easy to see
how we should be operating as a nation - and where we are failing.
Not only is this the best explanation of these processes I have
ever seen or read, but he does it with such a common sensical
approach that it is easy for anyone to understand it. This video
should be shown in every high school and college. It should be
played on every public access station in the nation. It should
be shown on PBS every week. EVERY ONE needs to see this video!"
constitutional presentation like nothing you've ever seen before
with the only solutions if this country is going to survive.
If money is tight, pool your resources, get a copy and share.
Get your group together and watch it in two hour increments and
then go after your state legislatures. You'll understand why I
say that after watching the full presentation.

slide presentation was put together by a dear friend of mine.
It is an exceptional way to explain our debauched currency to
people - especially minimum wage workers. Once they understand
the problem, people will realize they've not been given the solution
(raising the minimum wage), but rather more of the same down the
path of ruin. Please do share this with your mailing lists, family,
friends and activists. That
site is a treasure trove of knowledge: "The documents, presentations,
videos and audio recordings on this site are evidence of the unconstitutional
and illegal activities engaged in by those holding fiscal responsibilities

the Federal Reserve System Board of Governors and management."

the problem started so we can all pursue the only solution at

It's too late. We crossed the Rubicon years ago. ALL of them have
thrown away our freedom and financial future by not addressing
the "Fed" beast and their lust for taxing us into poverty. Now,
it's up to us.
