The criminality behind the federal reserve, and the failure of the congress "of the people", or their elected representatives to make any kind of changes to this farcical one percenter control mechanism, is an indicator that the people must make their own changes, or forever face poverty and slave wages to support the current biased system.

End the federal reserve. Convict and incarcerate corrupt banksters. Enough is enough.

By the way, this is a very concise and well stated truth.

Sure, but if the goal is end the fed or bust, my question is, why bust?

If you are battling an octopus, do you swipe off a tentacle whenever possible, especially if you know your cause is just, or do you stand your distance and just protest?

I'm just moving away from the mainstream lifestyle as much as I possibly can. Provide as much of my needs from my own efforts, and trade locally with people, rather than corporations. Run my car on recycled cooking oil, get power from the sun, catch water from the sky.

I know this isn't possible for everyone, but acting locally while thinking globally is what I can achieve short-term. It's not really anarchic, I know.

Then we agree. More consumer debt does not make that possible. Instead people have to find really stupid jobs, jobs that really actually hurt the planet because they require further unnecessary consumption of valuable resources that then leads to wars.

Yes, interest rate charges accelerates war mongering because nations need the resources to keep some people busy doing pointless jobs.

Signed, and shared on Fb. Hope that's the right thing to do. Not sure about that place, but I don't do much there anyways.

also known as ONE BILLION DOLLARS A DAY is going into the hands of greedy bankers, and that is just a residual payoff, meaning the 3 trillion dollars in consumer debt behind it remains unchanged, or is actually going up.

The point being that anytime anyone from government announces a "program" that is worth 5 billion, or 10 billion, or even 25 billion, it's all a drop in the bucket to the 360 billion dollars a year being drained from main street by wall street.

Or, 50 million americans paying 20 dollars A DAY, EVERY DAY, just for the interest rate payment on that 3 trillion in debt.
