to the International Bankers who own and control the Federal Reserve."

"When all is said and done,we do not own the land.The land owns us.We are but brief tennants in this home we call earth."
 -- Kevin Shearer     
    What this country needs is more McFaddens and less politicians. Unfortunatly, we will not be improved in November no matter who gets elected. That being said, the big "O", the Messiah is the most dangerous to the country. Did you hear the one about Hillary, Obama, and Biden on a donkey at the edge of a cliff. The donkey spooked and jumped over the cliff. Who was saved? The answer is "America".

    I believe this was in reference to the confiscation of every gold dollar from every American in order to permanently switch from a lawful 'hard' currency to an unlawful (but 'legal') interest-bearing fiat currency -- i.e. debt, or as the bankers like to call it, 'credit.' The biggest heist in a thousand years! The US has been bankrupt ever since and in receivership to the Fed.

    I find it somewhat amusing that only one State, Utah, has made gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts (gold and silver being lawful money.). With eminent domain's post Constitution definition being changed and enforced, along with the advent of debt-funny money, perfected allodium is no longer recognized or a possibility. Property can not be owned, only a title to property is allowed to be held. Title is a mere privilege to hold a form of legal control (not beneficial, equitable or perfected allodium - ownership). Ownership can be recognized by an instrument, under seal, that conveys a position with no encumbrances or possibility of forfeiture (by debt, taxes, operation of law and justice or otherwise)
