Opinion by Greg Chamberlain
The average citizen in the United States has become more poor with a currency on the verge of collapse through a wealth redistribution idea and fraudulent system carried out by the government. It's not what the founders intended. I am referring to the rampant out of control corporate welfare the government hands out to crony capitalists for the military, prison & big pharma industrial complex' and fraudulent bankers, all protected and artificially propped up by such a government.
This is the path we, as a society, have been brainwashed to accept as the way "free markets" are supposed to work. It's led to the misinformed to falsely believe that capitalism and free markets are evil. The so called "Occupy" protestors who march with such signs are misguided.
I am here to say capitalism and free markets have not ruined society, it's the politicians have distorted and gradually ruined capitalism and free markets.
Capitalism and free markets can be restored if we focus our attention on bad politics and corrupt politicians and take back our country. But, most in America are drinking RomBamaland Cool-Aid, served by Bilderberg puppets. This fascist parade of fools posing as Hope & Change isn't going to end anytime soon. Brace yourself, for the dollar is slipping further as government prints money to pay interest in it's obligations to foreign countries. Dilution of a currency by printing money backed by nothing leads to inflation. Inflation is what the rich who hold real estate and gold want, and inflation is what they will get if one just looks at the reality of flawed government policy.
What's the solution? Cut back, conserve cash, buy and hold tangible precious commodities. The best way to F THE MAN is to stop buying their products and services. Stop eating corporate food with "ingredients" and eat locally grown organic food. Don't use credit to consume anything. Use credit only to invest, if you must, but never to consume. Especially don't buy new cars on credit. Keep driving your existing car or upgrade when you must, to a well maintained previously owned vehicle and maintain it using a "local" non dealer mechanic. And ride a bike, walk, skate or ride the bus whenever possible. Buy clothes from local made in USA manufacturers who use organic unbleached non GMO fabrics. Even consider buying used/hardly worn clothing from great companies like Buffalo Exchange and other independent consignment and thrift stores. Avoid clothes that are fabricated in China and other countries. Drink local micro brew and vino from small family owned breweries and wineries. One of the best things one can do is find a small local community bank or credit union and leave behind Citibank, Bank of America, CHASE and all the other too big to fail institutions.
Most importantly, vote for a third party candidate for president and congressional seats. Basically, send the word that you want to F THE MAN without actually having to carry a sign. Just do it!
