Government defined

So about now, the obvious question should be: What exactly IS government? The answer comes from German sociologist Max Weber: Government is that entity which has a monopoly on force within a prescribed geographic area. The key word here is FORCE. Government and only government can legally use physical force to achieve its goals. Government agents can punish you, with whatever level of violence they think is necessary, to whip the citizenry into line.

biggovernment

A government agent can approach you with a deadly weapon iwant
and demand your money. You and I cannot legally do that. But the agent can whip out a card that says he’s a government employee, and for reasons that befuddle me, it’s suddenly OK.

A government agent can tell a business owner: “Mr. Businessman,
big-biz-tmwha081113

we don’t like the way you run your business, we don’t like the prices you charge, we don’t like what you pay your employees. Our people will now come in and straighten things out.” And if the business owner protests, they can haul him away and lock him up.

The government, by way of the Federal Reserve, can counterfeit our currency. They say they’re “stimulating the economy,Fiat-Empire

” but if you or I attempt to “stimulate the economy” like that,counterfeit-fake-bill-main_Full we would surely endure much suffering.

The targets of government violence do not even have to be inside our borders. The U.S. government can say to any foreign government anywhere: “We don’t like the way you govern your nation. nuke-war-h0011Therefore, we will attack you, invade you, embargo you, and bomb you until you fall into line with our desires.”

Government is violence. And violence is never a tool of productivity, wealth, prosperity, or problem-solving, and it should not matter if the perpetrator has a card saying he’s an employee of the government.

The only positive role of force in a civilized society is to DEFEND your life and property against others who employ violence or dishonesty. But when government uses force to steal your property, run your life and your private affairs, counterfeit the currency, and provoke war, that is not defending anybody. Let’s call government what it really is: a gang of thugs.

The standard response to this charge is that government must do these things because they are acting in the “national interest” or the “common interest” or the “common good” or whatever buzzword you prefer. So let me get this straight: the government must steal my money to pay hordes of fat-cat government bureaucrats their 6-digit salaries because … it’s in my “interest”? The government must spend tens of $billions of my dollars each month to turn some hellhole over in the Middle East into the biggest special interest project in history, because it’s “good” for me? I have no patience with people who feel they can run my life and spend my money better than I can, and are all ready, willing, and able to physically punish me if I disagree.

Another standard answer is that government force is justified because “the people” voted for it, thus government has a “mandate.” Let’s examine this myth. If one does the math, one realizes that the President of the United States is usually elected by only about a fourth of the adult population. (70 million voted for Obama, out of a population of about 250 million over the age of 18, yielding about 28%.) What kind of “mandate” is 28%? And this figures gets much lower when state and local offices are considered, due to low voter turnout.

Furthermore, the typical average voter is a clueless moron who values style and image over substance. Ask any voter in that 28% group why they voted as they did, and odds are you will not get an intelligible answer. They will probably say that the candidate “made them feel good,” or that they simply picked a candidate at random, or they will give the “sheep” answer: “everyone else was voting for him, so I did too!” And this is how politicians acquire the power to run our lives?

The Alternative

So if government didn’t “run the country” and protect the “public interest” and do all the things it attempts to do, who would? The answer, in short: people. Workers, volunteers, entrepreneurs, you and me. People, voluntarily cooperating with one another, acting in their own best interest, can solve problems and produce the goods and services we all need and want. It’s called free enterprise – a system where people are allowed to buy, sell, work, and trade without interference, so long as their actions are peaceful and honest. The free market always can solve problems and produce what people need better than government. There are no exceptions.

Consider: an airplane crash, an event that most people instinctively think only government can prevent. So which of these two people is in a better position to prevent an airplane crash? The CEO of the airline, who’s very livelihood depends on convincing the public that his product is safe, or some bureaucrat in Washington, who’s livelihood depends on the continuation of airplane crashes?

Consider: government “entitlement” programs, where the vast bulk of the collected revenues go to bureaucratic overhead. In contrast, non-profit organizations must demonstrate positive results, else their contributions will disappear.

Profit or non-profit, all private institutions in the free market must convince you to donate, or to buy their product, because it will make your life, or some else’s life, better. They must persuade you to come to work for them by offering a better job than the next guy. Government, on the other hand, says: follow our orders or we will punish you. The free market offers a positive incentive. Government offers a negative incentive.

Is the free market perfect? Of course not, because the free market is run by people, and people are imperfect. But wait a minute – who runs the government? People do, not gods!

But what about all those businesses and non-profits that run fraudulent operations and steal people’s money, or who hire goons and thugs to apply coercion? Let me point out that that is NOT free enterprise. As already stated, people should be left alone as long as their actions are peaceful and voluntary. It is true that, in any society, you will have some people who use violence and dishonesty to try to get ahead. But this type of behavior has never been acceptable and has always been outlawed. But let’s be consistent here – no exceptions if the violent perpetrator happens to bear a card saying he’s a government employee.

Conclusion

So where is this argument going? Should we totally abolish all government? Not necessarily. Government can have a role, but it’s a very small role: to institute a system of justice to protect us from force and fraud. As stated earlier, force is justified only for defending life and property. There are those who feel that government should perform that task; a compromise here is not unreasonable. But everything else government does, or attempts to do, must go.

So quit supporting politicians who use every crisis, every emergency, every problem, every piece of bad news as yet another excuse to make government bigger, more powerful, and more expensive. Instead, look for a politician who promises something like this:

“Because of the current crisis situation, I propose that we totally abolish each of the 100 government agencies listed on this report, and that we reduce government spending by 90%. Yes, I know it’s very drastic, and it will be very painful; but, it’s an emergency. And it’s a proven fact that big government does not work.”

The Greatest Ponzi Scheme ever devised

The Federal Reserve System
History, Function & Organization

“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” Thomas Jefferson

Early American Banking: 1791-1863
Banking in the America of 1863 was far from easy or dependable. The First Bank (1791-1811) and Second Bank (1816-1836) of the United States were the only official representatives of the U.S. Treasury – the only sources that issued and backed official U.S. money. All other banks were operated under state charter, or by private parties. Each bank issued its own individual, “banknotes.” All of the state and private banks competed with each other and the two U.S. Banks to make sure that their notes were redeemable for full face value. As you traveled around the country, you never knew exactly what kind of money you would get from the local banks. With America’s population growing is size, mobility, and economic activity, this multiplicity of banks and kinds of money soon grew chaotic.

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a moneyed aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” Thomas Jefferson

The National Banks: 1863-1913
In 1863, Congress passed the first National Bank Act providing for a supervised system of “National Banks.” The Act setup operational standards for the banks, established minimum amounts of capital to be held by the banks, and defined how the banks were to make and administer loans. In addition, the Act imposed a 10 percent tax on state banknotes, thus effectively eliminating non-federal currency from circulation. (What is a “National” bank?)

“If taxes are laid upon us without our having a legal representation where they are laid, we are reduced from the character of free subjects to the state of tributary slaves.” Samuel Adams

The Federal Reserve System: 1913 to Date

Functions of the Federal Reserve System
By 1913, America’s economic growth both at home and abroad required a more flexible, yet better controlled and safer banking system. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 established the Federal Reserve System as the central banking authority of the United States.

Under the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and amendments over the years, the Federal Reserve System:

* Conducts America’s monetary policy.
* Supervises and regulates banks and protects consumers’ credit rights.
* Maintains the stability of America’s financial system
* Provides financial services to the U.S. Government, the public, financial institutions, and foreign financial institutions.

The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the Bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe.. corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed. Abraham Lincoln

The Federal Reserve makes loans to commercial banks and is authorized to issue the Federal Reserve notes that make up America’s entire supply of paper money.

Organization of the Federal Reserve System
Board of Governors
Overseeing the system, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, controls operations of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, several monetary and consumer advisory committees and the thousands of member banks across the U.S.

The Board of Governors sets minimum reserve limits (how much capital is on hand) for all member banks, sets the discount rate for the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, and reviews the budgets of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks.

What is a “National” Bank
Any bank using the phrase, “National Bank” in its name must be a member of the Federal Reserve System. They must maintain minimum levels of reserves with one of the 12 Federal Reserve banks and must deposit a percentage of their customers’ savings account and checking account deposits in a Federal Reserve bank. All banks incorporated under a national charter are required to become members of the Federal Reserve System. Banks incorporated under a state charter may apply for membership. (“National Banks” from the US Code)
