No Change In How The Union Funds Their Wars
CHARLESTON, Jan. 12 - We thought these abbreviated snippets of how the North waged war upon the South would yield useful nuggets of understanding how wars of Yankee imperialism today threaten the very sovereignty of America. Can anyone identify the one component absent today that was prevalent in 1860? Right. Back then the Federal government had gold to back up their paper promises, and restore redeemability. Not so today, and with cracks now appearing in the world banking bodies of the IMF, BIS, World Bank, and so forth, it is now becoming ever apparent that Washington's control (control, not ownership, is the determining factor for power) over the remaining world gold reserves is diminishing almost daily as the US dollar collapses. Could this be the real reason why the Bush Legions are so impatient to wage war upon those who are opting out of their system? We think it's more along these sinister lines of pursuit than a war for oil. Read the commentaries below and imagine yourself a citizen living back in 1860, either North or South. In what form of money would you have placed your trust to survive? Gold is money. Oil is not.
As Ferdinand Lips so aptly expressed it: "Freedom is lost in small steps." So true. Those steps already taken you'll discover below.
