Why do Americans accept a Top-Down model of government & society?

While reading a revisited version of Thomas Paine’s: Common Sense, it intrigued my interest and I thought this could be a good topic of debate.

Why is it that Americans, as indigenous people, accept a top-down model of government & society today?  A top-down model of government follows this order & power-

top-down government:
1- federal government
2- state government
3- county government
4- city government
5- township/civic organizations
6- individuals/families

The quest for the return of sound money in America

Yesterday we marched on with our continual journey to restore sound money in America.  As we do every year, the concerned patriots across the nation gathered and held end the fed rallies.  The federal reserve is a private central banking system that is tasked with regulating the flow of cash & credit in the country.  How is it that private banks and the federal reserve can create our money and collect interest on it?  Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution does it give the authority to a private bank to regulate, control, print & collect interest on our nations currency.  Article 1 Section 8 says the following:

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
….

To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

TSA and the constant assaults on our liberties

While we sit down on our couches and watch the news, we can be fairly certain that the government is assaulting our liberties probably every time they convene in Washington D.C.  The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is a part of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which was authorized under the Patriot Act takes it to whole new levels almost daily.

Not only do they pat you down & search your bags, but people don’t understand that the mere existence of TSA is stifling business throughout the entire airport.  Whether it be for the airlines or the companies that operate out of the airport that sell merchandise, I’m sure profits have declined drastically since the TSA has taken over the reigns of security checks.

America’s Sturmabteilung

Sturmabteilung – The SA (also known as stormtroopers or brownshirts) were instructed to disrupt the meetings of political opponents and to protect Hitler from revenge attacks.

One thing I have always admired about the Founding Fathers is there simplicity.  They didn’t obfuscate words or require over a thousand pages of literature to write the Constitution.  They understood that the more laws you make, the less free a society is.  That’s why the Constitution is a relatively small document compared to the reams of crap that DC churns out each year.

For example, the 4A states;

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized

Tax the Rich!

The circus that is known as election time is upon us.  On November 2nd, citizens of the USA get to elect  which sociopathic dimwit gets to rule represent us for the next couple of years.  Amongst the usual rhetoric in order to persuade the ‘useful idiots’ to vote for assclown 1 over assclown 2 is the call to ‘tax the rich!’.  After all, they can afford it and god forbid people have to live off there own labour rather than stealing from others. The cry to tax the rich particularly irks me though as politicians get the useful idiots all riled up as they believe they can get something for nothing.

The fallacy of capitalism causes ‘evil’ companies

Let me start with definition of a company in the context I mean;

From merriam-webster;

3b : an association of persons for carrying on a commercial or industrial enterprise

To this end, a two man plumbing team or a huge multi-national corporation such as coca-cola can be defined as companies.

In today’s world, companies such as Goldman Sachs or Monsanto are considered ‘evil’.  But why?  What makes them ‘evil’?

The True Nature of Your Liberty

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

There is such beauty in those words and a simple truth that is often overlooked. In one paragraph we can see the entire purpose for which our ancestors rose up and made themselves free men and the thinking that influenced the inception of the greatest nation the world has ever seen.
