"The Rothschilds, and that class of money-lenders of whom they are the representatives and agents -- men who never think of lending a shilling to their next-door neighbors, for purposes of honest industry, unless upon the most ample security, and at the highest rate of interest -- stand ready, at all times, to lend money in unlimited amounts to those robbers and murderers, who call themselves governments, to be expended in shooting down those who do not submit quietly to being robbed and enslaved."

Lysander Spooner
(1808-1887) Political theorist, activist, abolitionist

    WOW. It couldn't have been said more truthfully -- or bluntly.

    The Rothschilds (originally Bauer's) made there first fortune through straight up theft. And now they are in the company of the Morgan's, Rockefeller's, Buffets...et al. And have manifested themselves as the US Federal Reserve. And we think "Voting" matters?

    Unfortunately, since the time of the Egytians (and before), the powers that be have longed to return to the days of kings and slaves. Many attempts have been made since those days. The beheadings of kings and queens have lessened this insane pursuit of absolute control, but it never went away. Now, with RFID, biometrics, internet...The insanity is returning.

    I'd shove a bullet right between their eyes to each and every one of them and free the world from the worst plague, ever. Thank you for your attention.

    This exposes the true nature of government and those driving it and its policies as they lurk in the shadows."Government of, for and by the people" in their minds is just Orwellian propaganda. Their money won't buy them out of Hell

    This is still true a hundred years after Spooner made the quote. To this day the Rothschilds and their fellow cohorts in the Bilderburg group control the governments that enslave mankind. This evil is more powerful than ever.

    This speaks directly to the fact that the United States Inc. is a seperate entity from We The People and that it is fuelled by the Fed, and IRS which are also a privately held corporations. We're "inventory" folks...not people. ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtvZUSXpDE8

    I knew a man who had a relative who was an IRS agent who referred to all us taxpayers as "inventory". J Carlton is right on this.

    I think that the government of Lysander's day did not appreciate him for the same reasons government does not appreciate people who think for themselves today. Why would a thinking person cooperate with the 2nd plank of the communist platform in the guise of supporting government.

    We are totally controlled by Maritime Law from the time we are born hence the word: "Birth" and as jim said, we are "inventory".

    " ( Kiss ) the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish From the Way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are All they that put their trust in him." Psalm 2:12. Two the number of division, Twelve the number of Divine government, Order. ( Keep It " Simple Single, Perfect ".
    Guarding the doctrines of Liberty and Freedom down through the ages, by those three, very wise men. Numerical order added to the holy text in due season. By a Gentleman who spoke 8 languages. I will be blunt, Three main Liberties, coupled with thirteen moral laws, with which to govern lending and barrowing practices of children SET AT LIBERTY. If one wishes to loose the bands of ORION mark well those 3 Stars. The heavens are our Declaration which can never be erased. Stories of Old coupled with arithmetic of heaven passed down from generation to generation. If, We the People were not, set at Liberty, there would be no need to rebel. A Phenomena unknown to most, reality to a few, known ( video, superficial ) of others. Residing within the USA, some walking at Liberty in a sea of slaves. To find out, one has to Test the Fact ! Riches of glory and beauty hidden in the heavens. part of the Promise in Christ of those at Liberty. 19 liberties and counting. 19th bk 19th ch. OT. KJB
