The book of the week was End the Fed by Ron Paul. I can't talk about this book very much. Don't get me wrong, it's a wonderful book completely filled with historical evidence and incredible content. I just cannot bring myself to go into much detail because my head will explode while standing on my soapbox.
Paul writes in his book about all the reasons the Fed should be abolished. I agree for several reasons. I think the Fed needs to be done away with because it is much too secret of an organization that has no accountability and ends up taxing the people it serves, without them having any representation. I don't think that an organization in our government should be a private entity that doesn't have to pass any operational information pass Congress. I also don't think that they should be able to make trillions and trillions of dollars without any input from the people. When the government comes up with new taxes at least they let us think we have a vote on it through our government representatives. The Fed increasing the money supply is taxing us and at the rate they are creating money they will inflate our dollars to a value of nothing... way more tax than I am prepared to pay.
So here are a couple of videos I have seen within the last few years that really explain what is going on. I find them quite comical too. To see Bernake sit in front of Congress and have zero answers is a total joke. Just watch these videos and see how The Fed really works....
I'm not into politics... I'm into money. I want to keep the money I earn and reduce or even sustain the amount of taxes I currently pay. I don't want to be triple and quadruple taxed... income tax, sales tax, increasing the money supply, etc.... Again, I don't have a lot to discuss on the matter. Just inform yourself and do what you can to change the way things work. Read Ron Paul's book. It's an eye opener... If you have any questions on the book don't hesitate to ask. I would be more than happy to help anyone that wants it.
