The will of the practitioners of vice have won out over the practioners of virtue but this cannot last as the basis of the practioners of vice is a foundations of lies and the truth will out in the end.

    "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes her laws" ~ Mayer Rothschild....Guess who's family runs the Fed? Guess who has control of all of us? Economic slavery was made official in 1913 and has grown to what we see today.

    So true J Carlton. The Rothchilds have the Bank of England now and look at the mess they have.

    We The People are still responsible and to blame for any cons we have fallen for that have ultimately enslaved us. We must learn to treat promises with the risk that comes with them. By treating promises as if they were the real thing, we start an endless cycle of gambling in a rigged game. Integrity is more than just keeping your word -- it also means NOT making promises one has to keep. A society without a sense of honor and humility will ever try to con itself and others of the 'promise' to come for which we must pay with our liberty now.
