"I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what
Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on
Washington; they would not wait for an election... It adds up to a
preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the
United States!"

George W. Malone
(1890-1961) U.S. Senator (Nevada)

Yet another example against democracy.

    Sounds like a typical backwoods politician who goes to Washington and finds out what government, federal law, and the legislative history of our country is all about. Remember when George Wallace wanted to throw all of the briefcases into the Potomac. So what's new?

    Malone was only stating what has become so very obvious. The plan, quite simply is to enslave the world one little usurpation at a time. Sadly, like Nazi Germany people will either happliy goose step along with the plan or fail to see that there is one. "It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Henry Ford

    The only reason that we are being steered towards a one world government is that those doing the steering think that they will be in charge when it finally happens. They may be surprised to find out that they will be the first against the wall when the leadership inevitably comes in to the hands of someone that will take all the power to himself.

    Yet another testimony of how complete the loss of the language of and feeling for freedom and liberty and, how full the effects of dumbing down to slaves has become. The people of this nation did not understand the destruction of economic and social independence then and, they have less understanding now.

    Waffler shows his ignorance (yet again) by calling someone who actually understands the system of chattel slavery "a typical backwoods politician" -- seems to me it is Waffler that is the hick. And Malone is 100% right. He was speaking specifically about the introduction of the Fed and the corruption of the law in order to make an unconstitutional counterfeiting operation legal. People are waking up (Waffler may remain in his perpetual stupor because the truth is too hard to bear), and when enough understand that there is no such thing as a free lunch, they will cast off their shackles, take the needles out of their arms, and send these vipers to hell.

    Reston, there you go, just like Waffler completely incapable of critical thinking. Wall Street is the culprit? Only because they are able to lobby and go golfing with....wait for it...CONGRESSMEN. The system is corrupt and it starts inside the beltway. Restore the Republic.

    Archer- I'm afraid there won't be enough people aware and awake to throw off the shackles. The public school system has been hard at work for far too long in dumbing down and indoctrinating the children of America. We have lost several generations of children to this false theory of socialism. It has been a systematic destruction so slow as to not set off any alarms until we realize the deed has been done. -------a quote for illustration------ "We must create out of the younger generation a generation of Communists. We must turn children, who can be shaped like wax, into real, good Communists. ... We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families. We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them. From the first days of their lives they will be under the healthy influence of Communist children's nurseries and schools. There they will grow up to be real Communists." -- Communist Party Education Workers Congress

    Mr. Malone died in 1961, he should see how much worse it's gotten since. As usual, Komrads Reston and Waffler give us the extreme left wing view. No need to subsribe to The Peoples World with those two around.

    'Wall Street' cronyism is bolstered by the Federal Reserve. Take away the ability to create money out of nothing, and the debt-bubble will burst. When people speak of 'Wall Street' as a generalization, they should remember that it is the Wall Street BANKS like Goldman Sachs, Citicorp, and all the other big banks that have merged and recreated themselves that have made higher profits after bail-outs than they did before. Those following the history of the Fed realize that the name of the game is bail-outs. The banks win if they invest wisely, and when they lose they make the government cover their losses. The American people end up footing the bill, over and over and over. If the press would honestly report these overt facts, I do believe the people would Occupy DC!
