What Americans MUST Do to Get it Back
How America Lost its Freedom

It’s now clear to most Americans that their country is not only headed in the wrong direction, but on the brink of complete extinction. In just the last six months, every major economic sector is speeding towards bankruptcy and the Fed has spent trillions in printed funny money, in an unbridled and ill-fated effort to buy up (not bail out) America’s free-market economic system, leaving the nation, its currency, its people - and yes - FREEDOM, headed towards imminent total collapse.
Opinions about how to save American freedom and liberty are plentiful. But without a proper fact based diagnosis, there is no way to know which remedy will save the day, and which might kill the patient. Before we can discuss a cure, we must carefully assess the illness…
The Cycle behind the Downward Spiral
Money, power and influence over government are indeed at the root of the problem. However, we must separate political spin from fiscal reality in order to properly identify the real culprits.
The cycle of corruption must be broken and Americans must identify and attack the greatest offenders first. If they fail to go after the kingpins of government corruption, they will waste a lot of time and resources chasing their tails in pursuit of mere pawns, or even worse, the wrong guys.
The cycle is simple, but not easy to break…
Money is used to buy politicians who then - once in power - return taxpayer funds to those who got them elected. Every modern politician campaigns for office on the promise to end this cycle. Yet to get elected, they must participate in that cycle, and once elected, they must complete that cycle by repaying the favor.
Understanding What Makes Your Government Tick
In short, money talks and all else walks! Ever heard the phrase “put your money where your mouth is…” or “he with the gold makes the rules…” - ?
I suspect that these famous one-liners originated in a government lobbying meeting. No voice is louder than your wallet. Your public protests, petitions and vote are no match for those who are truly serious about their agenda, - serious enough to “put their money where their mouths are…”
EXAMPLE: Statistically speaking, more than 70% of Americans oppose abortion on demand. But we have abortion on demand because the pro-abortion lobby is willing to “put their money where their mouths are…”
Over the last ten years alone, the pro-life lobby has spent $6,445,047 - 95% of it with Republican law makers. It wasn’t enough… The pro-abortion lobby spent $18,177,404 during the same period – 82% of it with Democrats.
Why are Republicans pro-life while Democrats are pro-abortion? Why is the pro-abortion lobby winning the debate? Look at those numbers again.
Here’s another example with the same outcome… Second Amendment Rights exist only because the pro-gun lobby spent $20,780,715 (85% with Republicans) over the last ten years while the gun-control lobby spent only $1,785,042 (94% with Democrats) in their effort to take your guns away.
Republican lawmakers are pro-gun because they get paid to be pro-gun. Democrats are anti-gun because they are fearful of gun toting American patriots. The Second Amendment is winning at the moment only because the pro-gun lobby outspends the gun-control lobby 10 - 1…
The examples are consistent and endless. Enough said?
The BIGGEST Culprits in America Today
Due to massive volumes of intentional misinformation, the average American has come to believe that public enemy #1 is “capitalism” and public enemy #2 is the “lobbyists” who attempt to promote their capitalist interests in Washington DC. It is FALSE!
“Lobbyists” are public enemy #2 not because they have that much influence, but because they lobby on behalf of free-market interest, aka “capitalism.” However, they are not even a major player in Washington DC today. So why do they get so much attention?
Over the last ten years, lobbyists account for a whopping $155,169,482 in political campaign contributions and according to Democrats, they own Republicans. How can that be when 52% of lobbyist funds go to Democrats?
Besides, this is an embarrassing drop in the bucket when compared to the real culprits who own Washington DC today… and that’s why free-market capitalism and freedom itself are losing the battle for America at present.
The single largest and most powerful political lobby in Washington DC today is, ready… drum roll please… our nations lawyers…. who lead the way with their cool $1,015,397,309 investment in political corruption over the last ten years, 73% of it invested in Democrats! Next time you are wondering how the judicial branch became a nine member oligarchy, look at this number again…
For those who truly hate political corruption in DC, this would have to make trial lawyers public enemy #1 as no group on earth can even come close to competing with this group.
Public enemy #2 would have to be the labor unions, which combined, invested over $478,058,579 over the last ten years, and once again, giving 90% of that money and power to Democrats. Why is today’s Fed a believer in “collectivism” and “the greater communal good?” Hmmm…. Imagine that! They think and act just like the labor unions! Are you familiar with the “ proletariat” movement? “(in Marxist theory) the class of workers, esp. industrial wage earners, who do not possess capital or property and must sell their labor to survive.”
Socio-economic ambulance chasers run Washington DC for the price of a cool billion in campaign contributions. If you don’t think corruption pays, count the number of lawyers at the head of every branch of the federal government today.
But the labor unions not only set a Marxist proletariat policy in DC, they reap the rewards from trillions in (union bid only) federal contracts, funded by the American taxpayer, 90% of whom are not union members and stand opposed to union thugery in the work place and in Washington DC.
Freedom and free-market capitalism are simply out-gunned in Washington DC. Elitist lawyers and corrupt labor unions operating under Marxist principles, rule the roost today, all at great expense to American taxpayers and American freedom. If Obama passes pending “Card check” legislation forcing anti-union employees to vote against unionizing in public, half of the nation will need federal witness protection just to outrun union thugs.
The Worst Offender Today!
Whenever the topic of corrupt labor unions comes up, most Americans think of the most infamous, the AFL-CIO and its 13,000,000 members. But these guys, despite their huge member base, are NOT the biggest problem in Washington politics anymore.
No, that title now belongs to the American Fedn of State, County & Municipal Employees.
In other words, the people who make their living on the government dole, whose paycheck and livelihood comes directly from the American taxpayer, is now the single most powerful union labor lobby in Washington DC.
Through their labor union, 1.4 million government (taxpayer funded) employees are now the biggest union lobby organization in America, giving an astounding $40,690,630 in political contributions over the last ten years, and yes, you are right, - 98% of it to Democrats!
As a result, your tax dollars employ 1.4 million government shirkers who are not happy with the work conditions and wages you offered them, so they formed a union to squeeze more out of the taxpayer. A percentage of the wages you pay as a taxpayer, go to the union which in turn invested 98% of $40 million with the Democrats, who guarantee “union only federal contracts” and grow the size and scope of government employment for benefit of their financial political partners, the government employees.
The cycle is complete…. and free-market Americans are cut out of the equation.
How America Lost its Freedom
America lost its freedom to elitist lawyers and the Marxist proletariat movement represented by a plethora of labor unions, none more powerful than the government employees union reaching ever deeper into to pockets of the American taxpayer.
To save freedom, this cycle of corruption and destruction of freedom must be broken.
What Americans MUST Do
First, don’t expect union members to help you do it, because they are profiting by this corrupt cycle, as are lawyers and their clients in search of the brass ring now offered by the liberal courts. Neither of these groups is on the side of the American taxpayer today, which means they are not on the side of American freedom and liberty either. Both of these groups benefit from an ever larger, more intrusive and more expensive government. Their agenda is to keep the cycle intact at any cost!
By now you are seeing what a massive financial juggernaut has its death grip on American freedom in Washington DC. You must be wondering what in the world the rest of America, specifically the American taxpayer, can do to break this monumental cycle of anti-American corruption and destruction….
More than 59,934,814 Americans voted against the current administration and all it stands for in November of 2008.
What if every last one of these voters reached deep into their pockets and committed $100 on a one-time basis, for the sole purpose of taking immediate actions to break the cycle of corruption which now defines Washington DC?
What could 59 million American patriots do with a $5.9 BILLION war chest, focused solely on ending the leftist cycle of political corruption which so clearly has a death grip on Washington DC and our beloved nation today?
The fact is, $10 from each, or $5.9 BILLION would get the job done, if 100% participated. As we know, 100% will NOT participate. 10% participation is the best we can hope for, realistically. 90% will complain, but will never step up!
Many around the globe seem to understand what too many Americans no longer understand. A reader from Canada recently wrote me;
“If America falls to the Global socialists, we all fall. America represents freedom to people world wide. Please don’t let that dream die.”
Is the future of freedom and our nation worth $100 each? - If it isn’t, we deserve to lose it…!
Never again ask “what can I do?” This, every American patriot CAN do! Will you?
If your answer is yes, let me know. If the people have this kind of will, together, we can find a way!
