Be Your Own Leader

J. Croft posts this excellent essay at his Freedom Guide blog.

It begins:

That’s what I do and that’s what you need to do if you want to survive what’s coming. What’s here now.

What’s here now is the proverbial Fat Lady singing on the preplanned destruction of America. Our America. The jobs are gone, we’ve pissed off the entire planet, we’ve signed over responsibility for our country over to the CEO’s, banksters, lawyers, bureaucrats who have perpetrated our destruction. We’re bankrupt in every measurable way, overstretched, millions are destitute, our cities and infrastructure crumbling or outright imploding.

We by and large can’t even find our own country on a map. Can’t even properly answer why our Ancestors rebelled against the most powerful empire on Earth and won. Or do basic arithmetic in our heads. Balance our personal finances. Discern when we’re being hustled-let alone do something about it. Defend ourselves against the modern day barbarians in the bankster created urban ghettos.

Our Ancestors led themselves, could lead themselves. They were, allowing for the knowledge base, one of the most educated populations in Earth’s history. And they certainly could find their own country on a map-and name all the cities, counties, rivers, mountains, and bordering states.

Our Ancestors knew when they were getting screwed. Tried for decades before that fateful day in Massachusetts April 19, 1775 to alleviate, ameliorate what their king and government were doing to them.(Really it’s a pittance compared to what’s been done to us-but that just shows you how totally they’ve screwed us.)

And our Ancestors were able to fight and win against the most powerful government and military on Earth because they knew how to add, read, had business sense, grow their own food, make their own weapons and ammunition. Most of all because they were willing to fight back. At the least take over their local governments when they became corrupt-and after that day on the road back to Boston from Lexington take on the British Army and beat them.

After which our Ancestors expanded, took an entire continent-and after a long series of ill advised wars against Native Americans and each other over slavery forged a nation. Which the banksters and their lawyer and bureaucrat agents twisted into an empire-their America. Then again the banksters have always been in charge. They’ve had to be careful as Americans were smart, self-sufficient, armed, tough and willing to fight...

So they laid their groundwork, the foundation for taming us. After engineering depression and economic calamity to stir up reactions the banksters got approval for a secret convention in 1787. That is where the constitution was written; on the surface a blueprint for divided, distributed government it actually blocked reform, spread responsibility while quietly allowing this American ‘elite’ to maintain control over their presumed subjects. All you need to remind you it was an elitist document cleverly configured to seemingly promote freedom is that slavery was still recognized and a slave was 3/5 of a vote.

It was pushed onto the American People in a classic fear campaign mixed with political blackmail that saw Rhode Island subject to complete embargo to break it. Only the inclusion of a watered down Bill of Rights for the People to hold onto some hope of justice enabled it to pass, become the law of the land.

So the banksters got their government. Then they set out to get our minds.

Education was the logical choice; 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, 9 months out of the year for 8 to 12 years the minds of generations of Americans were the plaything of the educators. Steeped in the Prussian school of education-turn out obedient workers and soldiers-they still maintained a high level of learning but instilled in the American regimentation, obedience.

If you can get a person to obey you, you can get them to do anything else you want. Get their kids to trust you, you can start to quietly, subtly degrade their education. In 1909 high school students could read and converse in latin. In 2009 high school kids have to go to college remedial courses to get only part of the education the high school kids in 1909 got before they reached puberty.

The law too gradually became the exclusive playground of the lawyers. See, back in the early days of America people represented themselves in court-they knew the law. A few decades after the 1787 constitution was shoved down our throats the lawyers openly took over, both representing clients and judging. A 13th Amendment banning titles of nobility and prohibiting said persons from holding office... esquire is a title of nobility... was quietly omitted from public record. Every single judge, representative and public servant who is a lawyer is actually in violation of the law. Try to bring that up in court...

With the takeover by the lawyers and the dumbing down of Americans the next step came with the industrial revolution-the move into the cities...

Read the rest.

And try to understand -- the old country is gone.

Likely forever.

Today, and for the foreseeable future, we live in a kleptocracy designed to enrich members of the political class and their allies (a/k/a "the Ins") while permanently indenturing every single one of the rest of us (a/k/a "the Outs").

Every single Out has been or will be faced with the same choice:

Submit, and accept the chains of bondage to the Ins for yourself and your children.

Or fight and defeat by any means necessary those who are enslaving you and your progeny, even as you read this entry.

You say the term "enslaving" is inflammatory and mere hyperbole?

Then tell us, fellow citizen, who is going to pay this $11.868 trillion dollar debt (so far) and its associated interest, especially once historically-low interest rates resume their usual levels?

Tell us also exactly how those payments will be extracted from the American people?

And finally -- at what point does confiscatory aggregate taxation at the local/state/Federal levels simply become a polite euphemism for "serfdom"?

Is it 20% of income and wealth?



Higher still?

Make no mistake: we are headed there, on a express train.

And please tell me:

On what basis does any rational person believe that the Ins will relinquish their grip on power, unless forced, by any means necessary, to do so?

Remember your Douglass?

Two closing thoughts:

Qui tacet consentire videtur.

Silence is consent.

Qui audet adipiscitur.

Who dares, wins.

I had written a long and detailed fisking of Mr. Croft's essay, but fate intervened, my machine locked up and I lost it all.

Suffice to say that just the excerpt you posted is filled with so many glaring historical inaccuracies as to make one weep for the dearth of his education - and I haven't yet read the part you didn't quote here.

Don't get me wrong - I 100% support and agree with your conclusion - the Republic *IS* gone, and what is left to us now is but vermin feeding upon its rotten corpse.

Our Capital and Capitol are both filled with traitors, who fully deserve to reap the proper consequence of their treason.

The time when a return to the proper role of Government (servant) and citizen (master) could have been accomplished without refreshing the tree of Liberty with its natural manure is long past.

The question now is whether we have the fortitude necessary to do what must be done, or whether this shining city on a hill will finish what little remnant remains incomplete of its slide into total endarkenment.

Perhaps later I'll find the will to redo what I'd typed, but for now I will simply weep for what we've destroyed through our failure to live up to our birthright.

God help us, and God Save Our Republic!

Might I respectfully suggest that a better use of the time would be to find a way to enhance Croft's call for independent thought and courage?

"The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told..."

I think you meant "Ins" - No?

To put it in perspective....

All the currency in all the world totals only $8 trillion.

All the gold ever mined in the history of the world totals only $10 trillion.

They want to raise the debt ceiling again and at the rate we are spending lately our national debt will soon exceed the value of all the world's currency and gold combined.

They are literally dug themselves a hole we cannot get out of.

With every possible piece of evidence pointing to Marxists and the very far left, consolidating power and upending the Constitution, I find it totally incredible that anyone could overlook it for such an explanation.

If it walks like a duck, spouts Marx and Lenin like a Marxist duck, wears a beret with a hammer and sickle pin on it, like a good little Marxist duck, It's a Marxist, commie duck!

The next clue will be the AN-94 pointed at your head, if they want your attention.

I realized some time back that they are DELIBERATELY trying to cause inflation.

Think about it: If they could accomplish (for example) an 80% devaluation of the dollar - thus turning "the dollar store" into "the five-dollar store" - it would (to the mind of a sociopathic collectivist moron) solve all sorts of problems, especially once salaries caught up with the newly-devalued currency...

(1) All the folks who are "upside-down" in their mortgages would then be able to either pay them off or sell the house - or the bank could foreclose and not lose on the deal.

(2) Likewise, our Government would find it much easier to pay off THEIR debt - since our obligations are not tied to inflation or payable in gold or whatever.

(3) All the folks who pay no taxes today would be well up into the 30%+ tax-brackets, thus helping the .gov raise the cash to pay off their debt.

I'm not saying that I think it's a good idea -- far from it -- I'm just pointing out how I believe these morons are "Thinking"...

It's the only thing I can see that makes any sense.

First, I'd like to thank WRSA for publishing.

Second, to anonymous what glaring historical innacuracies are you referring to?

The Indian Wars? The ancestors of the banksters and politicians couldn't keep their word? And yes the political families of America have been running this country from the beginning.

I hope to God you think I'm wrong about the Civil War-but the slavery issue orginated with the ancestors of America's political elite-not the millions of indentured servants that became the bulk of the American People.

Those 'elite' created crises after the Paris Peace Treaty of 1783, manipulate the economy of the newly independent and shaky United States to create uprisings like Shay's Rebellion.

Why? To make cause for the 1787 Constitutional Convention.

The United States with a untouchable Supreme Court(except by the pres and he's pwned)has led to the roll back of Freedom.

We cannot go forward unless we know all the mistakes we've made.
