Don’t Trust Politics to Change Your Life, Trust Yourself

from The Daily Bell:

Glenn Reynolds: Don’t let U.S. become next Rome … Entrenched political elites will sacrifice anything to retain power, including their own country…. As you vote, remember that the more resources you put under the control of the political class, the more likely it is that things will eventually go bad. Politicians seldom look past the next election, and they’re willing to sacrifice pretty much anything to hang on. And that “pretty much anything” includes you. –USA Today

Glenn Reynolds is law professor and member of the USA Today editorial board. He makes good points in this just-published editorial, as you can see above.

But the reality goes far deeper than that.

The main idea Reynolds presents is that the more control voters give politicians, the more resources they have at hand to abuse.

In other words, politicians will invariably use the power they have to enrich themselves and their cronies at your expense.

More:

I happened to be reading … Joseph A. Tainter’s The Collapse of Complex Societies¨ Tainter’s theory, to simplify things quite a bit, is that as societies grow they become more complex, slapping on layer after layer of institutions, regulations and customs to deal with challenges (and, I suspect, to facilitate the ruling classes’ extracting resources from the ruled).

… Eventually, the society is devoting almost all its resources to maintaining these institutions and has very little reserve left to deal with the unexpected. The result is that challenges that it would have weathered easily in the past are now sufficient to bring it to an end.

But Reynolds never discusses modern, monopoly central banking. The entire US economy – the world’s economy – is poisoned by it.

    Memo on dealing with corrupt politicians:

    Always remember, the lesson(s) of the faux, imported “Russian” “Revolution” of 1917!

    Rothschild-agents on Wall St. (Jacob Schiff, and Paul Warburg, all Ashkenazi-Jews), and in Germany (Max Warburg, Ashkenazi-Jew), FINANCED Lev Bronstein (aka Leon Trotsky, Ashenazi-Jew), and Lenin (part-Jew), to carry out the so-called “Russian” “Revolution”.

    My point is: “They” have ALL the bases covered. EVEN VIOLENT UPRISINGS or “REVOLUTIONS” can be little more than STAGED EVENTS, to clamp down on the population, usher in martial law, & their collectivist, COMMUNIST government.

    The solution: Non-violent, non-compliance (also called “civil disobedience”) ACROSS THE BOARD! FIND SOLUTIONS to EVERYTHING they’ve set up to control you. LIVE FREE! BE FREE! BECOME (MORE) SELF-RELIANT!

      “Don’t Trust Politics to Change Your Life, Trust Yourself” TO CHANGE WHAT YOU DO!

      Remember, knowledge is NOT power. Only knowledge PUT INTO ACTION is power. You have to ACT upon the knowledge.

      SOLUTIONS~WHAT WE CAN DO ~ YES WE CAN ~ TO CHANGE OUR WORLD!

      SOLUTIONS~SOLUTIONS~SOLUTIONS!)

      1) THINK FOR YOURSELF!
      2) TURN OFF YOUR TV (or better still – throw it out!)
      3) GET OUT, AND/OR STAY OUT, OF DEBT!
      4) USE CASH ~ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE (not credit or debit cards)
      5) RESEARCH THE BANK WHERE YOU KEEP YOUR CHECKING AND SAVINGS ACCOUNT! (Did YOUR bank participate in the welfare-for-the-rich, “No-Banker-Left-Behind” BAILOUT of 2008?) Support your local credit union! BANK AT A LOCAL CREDIT UNION!
      6) VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS! (What do you support with your time, energy, attention, and money?)
      7) TAKE ACTION! CONTACT YOUR “REPRESENTATIVES” ON CRITICAL ISSUES LIKE END THE FED!
      FEAR NOTHING! YOU LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY, RIGHT?
      8) EXERCISE YOUR GOD~GIVEN RIGHTS (WHILE YOU STILL CAN)! YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OWN A FIREARM TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND FAMILY (READ THE 2ND AMENDMENT!)
      9) BUY PRODUCTS MADE IN AMERICA! [Buy non-mega-corp brands]!
      10)INVEST IN “PRECIOUS” METALS (SUCH AS SILVER, AND GOLD, WHICH HAVE REAL VALUE, UNLIKE PAPER FIAT ‘MONEY’ [CURRENCY], which ALWAYS returns, historically, to it’s intrinsic value, which = zero, as it did in Weimar Germany)
      11)BUY ORGANICALLY~GROWN FOOD! Shop at a local Food Co-op, or Organic Store!
      (EAT PLENTY OF ORGANICALLY-GROWN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES IF YOU CAN, YOU MAY WANT TO START YOUR OWN ‘VICTORY’ GARDEN ~ EAT LESS MEAT (PARTICULARLY RED MEAT, UNLESS CATTLE IS GRASS-FED) EAT FOOD WITH FEWER CALORIES, AND HIGHER NUTRITIONAL VALUE)
      12) Take a high-quality daily multivitamin (Stop Aging Now, Carlson’s Labs, Garden of Life, NOW brands)
      13) MEDITATE – REDUCE YOUR STRESS!
      14) GET EXERCISE!
      15) READ A BOOK! Here’s a good one: THE SECRET BEHIND COMMUNISM, by Dr. David Duke, PhD. Get your copy, here: http://daviddukeonline.com/product/the-secret-behind-communism/
      16) OPEN YOUR MIND! (EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN MUSCLE!)
      17) LISTEN TO SOOTHING CLASSICAL, JAZZ, AMBIENT OR ALTERNATIVE MUSIC!

      Below is advice from John Perkins’ book, entitled THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE (The Truth About Economic Hit Men, Jackals, And How To Change The World), pp. 322-329.

      AVOID SHOPPING AS ‘RETAIL THERAPY’
      (Instead, jog, meditate, read, or find some other solution).
      SHOP CONSCIOUSLY – if there is something you must have, purchase items whose packaging, ingredients, and methods of production are sustainable and support life.

      MAKE EVERYTHING YOU OWN LAST AS LONG AS POSSIBLE PURCHASE AT CONSIGNMENT AND THRIFT STORES – where everything is recycled.

      Write letters telling Monsanto, De Beers, ExxonMobil, Adidas, Ford, GE, Coca-Cola, WALMART, and other labor exploiters and environment destroyers why you REFUSE to purchase from them. (emphasis added)

      CUT BACK ON OIL AND GAS CONSUMPTION!

      DOWNSIZE (your car, home, wardrobe) – everything in your life (and don’t buy what you don’t need)

      SUPPORT/SEND MONEY only to non-profits, radio stations, and other organizations that promote JUST causes. VOLUNTEER your time and energy to such organizations.

      SUPPORT LOCAL MERCHANTS (Note: Especially stores which sell naturally, organically-grown food)! ENCOURAGE stores to buy from local growers, producers, and suppliers. Shop at your LOCAL FARMERS’ MARKET [or Food Co-op, or Organic Food Store]

      AVOID DRINKING WATER THAT IS FLUORIDATED (only your toothpaste should have non-industrial fluoride)

      INSIST that those who use your money – banks, pensions, mutual funds, companies – make socially and environmentally responsible investments.” (End quote)

      RESEARCH EVERY COMPANY WHOSE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES YOU BUY!

      RESEARCH EVERY ORGANIZATION TO WHICH YOU DONATE YOUR HARD~EARNED MONEY!
      VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS! INVEST IN SILVER (AND GOLD)!

      Watch FREEDOM TO FASCISM, a film by Aaron Russo; Also – TERRORSTORM, & ENDGAME, two films by Alex Jones.

      EXPAND THIS LIST AND SHARE IT WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

      Addendum: END THE ENDLESS PHONY “WAR ON TERROR”. END THE “ELITE” PLAN FOR “GUN CONTROL”. END THE “ELITE” CHARADE OF “GLOBAL WARMING” – oops! – “CLIMATE CHANGE”. END THE PHONY “WAR ON DRUGS”. END THE PHONY “FED” (“Federal” “Reserve” System). END THE ENDLESS ASSAULT ON THE U.S. CONSTITUTION, it’s BILL OF RIGHTS, and the RULE OF LAW!

      RESTORE LIBERTY! RESTORE AMERICA NOW! RON PAUL IN 2012! (OOPS!)

      Thomas Jefferson quote: “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”

      “My point is: “They” have ALL the bases covered. EVEN VIOLENT UPRISINGS or “REVOLUTIONS” can be little more than STAGED EVENTS, to clamp down on the population, usher in martial law, & their collectivist, COMMUNIST government”,

      Which – after 1917 – in Russia – was followed by massive GENOCIDE!

      They have a PLAY-BOOK, an AGENDA, a BLUEPRINT – and you can be sure they’ll use it !
