During another national campaign, we are exposed to issues and slogans
that miss the mark. The question of impending war does not affect most citizens - they won't be doing the fighting. The issue
of unchecked immigration does not concern most voters - they live in safe neighborhoods. And the loss of individual Liberties
does not concern most people - they never understood the nature of their own rights. So what question of public policy will
have the appeal that the average voter can focus upon and raise their attention level?
How about the subject of money? No we don't mean the current condition
of the economy or even the purchasing value of the currency. The essential predicament that the politicians want you to avoid
is that of ownership! Is your own money your own? This simple question appeals for an examination into the
character of private property and the role of government. How you answer will greatly determine your attitude toward freedom
for yourself and that of the society that seeks to limit your individual choices.
In the end, money has the function of providing the means to achieve personal
selections of wants and needs. The key is personal, relying upon effective empowerment to decide. Money only provides for
options. While the lack of resources can be a determent to your well being, claims upon your capital in the name of society
can be deadly. Most people don't give a second thought to the puissance that government executes over your wealth when they
assess tribute for you to pay. Taxes are inevitable, RIGHT? But that reality evades the basic relationship.
How is it conceivable that the fruits of your labor, ingenuity or risk
taking requires a silent partner that demands a share from what you earn or create? Arguments that all citizens have
responsibilities for contributing to society, dodge the inherent relationship. A moral obligation to pay as you go for what
you use is appropriate and reasonable. Paying a fee for a useful function is simple good business. However, when the intrinsic
province of ownership is denied - as is the case with all coercive taxation, the subservience of the person under the State
is guaranteed. This distortion of natural relationships is at the heart of the political hoax that continues unabated.
The answer to our question is an resounding YES - your money is your own
property - PERIOD. But that truism of human dignity is rejected by the government culture, and sadly ignored by most citizens.
The reason that servitude is ubiquitous, clearly rests upon ceding your own rights and the willing forfeiture of your own
wealth. It is not the penalties of refusal to pay that keeps people in bondage, but it is silent resignation that allows for
the theft of your money that fuels the tyrant that calls itself government.
Why do you resolutely denigrate yourselves with your tacit compliance to
a fraud? If you deny that your money is your own, you must also acknowledge that you are NOT the underlying source of authority
that confers legitimacy upon properly constructed and limited government.
Is it that much of a stretch or is anyone really surprised that the public
is so eager to transfer their own responsibilities to an abstract entity called society - ruled under the auspices of arrogant
government lackeys? Citizens no longer have a trace of independent reasoning or self respect left. They have evolved into
cheerleaders for the State, because they are unwilling to confront the basic nature of their own authority. With the abdication
of control over their own money, they degenerated into demanding parasites asking for permission to have a share of their
own wealth returned back to them.
It is indisputable that government never creates wealth. They can't even
print their own money, anymore. With the origin of the Federal Reserve System the ultimate insult has the taxpayer furnishing
interest on the bogus debt created currency. They are then assessed even higher taxes, while inflation creeps and steals its
way into devouring the value of your money. But for those who deny that their money is their own - why should they care?
As with most issues the determining factor is developing the correct attitude.
What can be more relevant than to achieve the proper understanding that universal natural rights require that your money is
private property? Defending it is your best assurance that you will be able to survive and be a free citizen. If you cannot
respect your ownership to your own money you are no better off than a beggar holding a tin cup. Americans are a shell of past
generations. No wonder the enemy of the people has become the government. Your silent partner now has the time and money to
extort other nations, since resistance has gone still. Money can buy most things, but it cannot purchase Liberty. Its time
to change the color on the currency to yellow . . . a befitting symbol of the substance for most voters. The politicians offer
but one choice, up the sum you need to pay them.
