Opinion: The Biggest Theft in History
The 2020 Presidential election has caused a lot of commotion and confusion on the streets of America and around the world. I am a first-hand witness, hearing many people’s concerns that both sides of the political aisle may not be upholding truth and liberty. The people I talk to are constantly asking: Are you concerned? Where do you think it will end up?
Joseph Stalin said, “It is not who votes that counts, but who counts the votes” however I think Mark Twain said it best -- "History never repeats itself but it rhymes."
President Trump and his legal team are alleging that the voting machines used in certain swing States were corrupted and the votes were changed or deleted. The Trump team is also alleging that votes were incorrectly counted, and the mail-in ballots were defrauded. I am personally not one for conspiracy theories, I am just reporting on concerns that the ‘words on streets’ are voicing. And this is not about right or left; it is about right and wrong.
So, what went wrong?
The biggest theft in history happened when the Stock Market crashed in 1929. This bankrupted the United States of America and sent the country into the Great Depression. President Franklin Roosevelt brought forth a plan to get the country back on its financial feet. “The New Deal” came into being. This movement of rules and regulations included a provision that ended the use of gold as a backing for the nation’s currency and instead borrowed money into existence through a series of bond issues from the US Treasury that was purchased by the Federal Reserve and other nations. This created “debt-money” and changed the US Dollar into a dollar ‘bill’. Yes, an actual bill that states the holder owes this to the national debt. Roosevelt’s New Deal turned the private sovereign US citizen into a public debtor, also known as a “wage slave.”
Have you ever heard of the Golden Rule? No; not that one. I’m talking about the one that states that those who own the gold make the rules. Many ancient cultures believed that gold holds the same frequency as the sun and is a direct reflection of the sun’s power. Since gold cannot be created or destroyed, is very rare, and is a reflection of the most powerful thing known to man, they used it to back their currency as an extension of that government’s power and fought many wars over it. When the New Deal took our gold away, it took our power away also. Taking our gold away from the dollar was and is the biggest theft in the history.
Many people are concerned about the mandatory facemasks. They say the masks take away the only thing we have left --our “Face Value”.” First, we are forced to turn our gold in taking away the value of our money, now we are losing our face value. The COVID threat may be a very real and dangerous threat; however, in places like South Africa where airborne tuberculosis is the leading cause of death and has been for the past two decades, no one has been forced to wear a facemask until now.
Though the answer to restoring power to the people may be more complicated, there IS a way to reclaim our financial independence and that is through private ownership of gold.
The big money players and the smart money managers are moving ahead of the curve. They have been slowly transferring their wealth into gold for the past year no matter what the price is because they know what the rest of us are now just learning; in the future, gold will be priceless.
