End Of An Era: The Rise And Fall Of The Petrodollar System

"The chaos that one day will ensue from our 35-year experiment with worldwide fiat money will require a return to money of real value. We will know that day is approaching when oil-producing countries demand gold, or its equivalent, for their oil rather than dollars or euros. The sooner the better."

If Trump Tries To Remove ISIS, Will He Be Removed?

If Trump really does try to wipe ISIS out – or drastically reduce the power of NATO – will he be risking his own health and well-being? The US is run by corporatist and military entities. Will they hesitate to intimidate or remove Trump if he tries to end ISIS? Western war-interests always need an enemy after all.

Don't Reform The Fed, Fed-Exit!

Opponents of a central bank should take advantage of the post-Brexit vote revival of secessionist sentiments to promote a secession from central banking, or “Fed-exit.” Ending the Federal Reserve's monopoly on money is the key to restoring and maintaining our liberty and prosperity.

"Dear Bernie Sanders Supporters..."

"Don’t let the Democratic party steal your thunder. You created this revolution because you know something is wrong with the United States, and you saw Bernie Sanders as your next best chance to fix it. You’re right - there is something wrong with America. Many things, in fact. From inequality to money’s control over politics (see: oligarchy), police brutality to never-ending wars, social inequity to economic insecurity … need I go on? Regardless, this revolution is now yours for the taking, but it will be lost if you allow yourself to vote for Hillary Clinton — or Donald Trump, for that matter."

Fool's Errand: NATO Pledges Four More Years Of War In Afghanistan

The longest war in US history just got even longer. As NATO wrapped up its 2016 Warsaw Summit, the organization agreed to continue funding Afghan security forces through the year 2020. Of course, with all that funding comes US and NATO troops, and thousands of contractors, trainers, and more.

The Curse Of Socialist Highways - How Government Ruins July 4th Travel

Unfortunately the travel before and after the 4th of July is a different story, with it widely considered one of the worst travel days of the year. While the desire to take advantage of the holiday to enjoy friends and family is a natural product of humans being inherently social creatures, the degree to which this congestion leads to headache and misery rests solely with the institution responsible for them during the rest of the year – the government.

When Fearmongering Fails

Fear is the go-to emotion that government preys upon. It's so reliable. The fear of the unknown causes most individuals to give away and sacrifice every liberty that they were naturally born with. A population that is perpetually afraid ultimately ends up fearing liberty itself! Government's sales pitch is that you need them. It is they who will protect you from a never-ending carousel of fears. A gigantic lesson can be learned from today's historic event. It proves that fear-mongering has its limits. It's not fool-proof.
