Excellent article, Mr. Mitchell, which should wake up some Americans as to the direction in which this nation is heading (towards economic & monetary collapse). We need to drastically reduce government handouts, dependency, regulation, taxation & bureaucracy. We also need to stop trying to be the world's self appointed policeman, which we can no longer afford (even if one thought it was a good idea in the first place). Yes, we should have a strong national defense, but the key word is DEFENSE, and we should not intervene where there is no real homeland threat... & part of that defense should include closing the borders to illegal immigration.
Well put. We don't need 2 big government, tax & spend, Constitution-trashing political parties who are both slaves of big banks & crony capitalists. We don't need more support of a non-sustainable & out-of-control welfare/warfare/police state.

Almost Half of America on Welfare

"Almost Half of America on Welfare" -Yes, that's one of the main reasons why the USA has entered into a downward spiral of self destruction. More & more Americans are government dependent rather than self reliant, there are fewer producers & more takers. The takers now regularly outvote the producers & the process will only get worse. As government grows more powerful, our liberties are trampled upon, the economy gets less efficient, taxation skyrockets & everything just keeps getting worse. We've turned into an out-of-control & non-sustainable welfare/warfare police state run by a corrupt oligarchy. Our Founding Fathers would be disgusted with us.
"17. A private central bank issuing the public currency is a greater menace to the liberties of the people than a standing army. We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt." -Thank you for all 20 reasons listed above, and it's very obvious that T.J. & virtually all our Founding Fathers would be horrified if they were alive today to look at what the USA has morphed into. Our original Constitution was flawed (permitting slavery amongst other wrongs), but they got a lot of things correct & if they were consistent in following T.J.'s advice: "...can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever", then they should have seen the evils of slavery & avoided the Civil War. But for us today, I see point #17 as one of the most important points. One of the main reasons why the USA is collapsing today is because of the private banking cartel, the Federal Reserve, that was created in 1913 & which has economically enslaved most of us & has corrupted our political leaders.
Indeed, economic stagnation & inflation ("stagflation") exist because politicians (& the Federal Reserve) are doing too much. If we want faster growth and more jobs, we need to get rid of the Federal Reserve (& their artificial manipulation of paper money, interest rates & market prices) & get government out of the way!! This is basically small government, truly free market "Austrian economics" as opposed to what we have now: big government, corrupt "crony capitalism" Keynesian economics. Wake up average American voter (& politician) & return to the basic economic principles that once made the USA the wealthiest & best economy in the world. Also, let's mind our own business in international affairs & not intervene in other nations unless they are directly attacking or threatening to attack us! So we don't need 800+ military bases in 120+ nations around the world to guard our borders!! Bring the troops home & guard our borders properly, stop the endless undeclared wars & with money saved we can upgrade our defenses at home. So lets end our out-of-control big government welfare/warfare/police state & return to the small government, Constitutional Republic our Founding Fathers envisioned! What we have now is not working, is non-sustainable & will fail anyways.
"The Left, Not the Tea Party, is America’s Taliban" -Agreed, but to the extent that the Right also supports big, Unconstitutional government that is taking away our liberties & allowing the out-of-control welfare/warfare/police state to grow at a non-sustainable rate which will quickly lead to our economic & monetary collapse... well then, the Right is also part of the problem! It's not so much of Right v Left as it is big government loving Statists v small government loving Constitutionalists. It's also corrupt, "crony capitalism" v level playing field, true free market capitalism (which will not happen until we end the evil Federal Reserve).
Priebus is part of the Establishment GOP & the Establishment GOP is a disgrace. No more donations to the general Republican Party as long as Priebus is head of it!
Yes, the Establishment GOP is a disgrace. I've basically stopped all donations to it except for specific candidates endorsed by the Senate Conservative Fund on the Federal level and some others occasionally on the state & local level if they support small, Constitutional government, a restoration of our liberties, a balanced budget & lower taxes.

So you are not concerned about deficit spending, about out-of-control & Unconstitutional big government taking our liberties away, about the collapse of the purchasing power of the paper dollar (instead of using money based on gold & silver as is specified in our Constitution) or the loss of the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency, about the monetary & economic abuses done by the Federal Reserve, about the endless warfare the US has pursued since WW2 or that these wars were pursued without a Congressional declaration of war, about increasing government dependence by the average American, about out-of-control taxation... I could go on. Ron Paul has been warning us about these things for many years, but some like you must not have ears to hear.
