What can I say?  We have just survived the worst presidency in history, filled with blatant corruption, tyranny, and disregard for any and all laws both human and natural.  The economic situation is getting worse every day.  The front page of the Minneapolis Star Tribune headline stated, “

Monday jobs massacre: 55,000 lost

”.  My hometown has a population of around 8,000 people and it’s a relatively large town in it’s neck of the woods.  I think of everyone in my home town and all towns within a 50 mile radius losing their jobs in ONE DAY and I nearly cry.

This is tragic on so many levels.

The loss of jobs causes a loss of income causing a loss of purchasing power causing a loss of demand for goods and service causing a surplus causing less production and distribution causing a loss of jobs and on and on and on and on.

It’s the deflationary cycle.  The decreased demand causes prices to fall and more of the above.

What can be done to stop it?

Well, as far as I can figure, it comes down to money.  Now I’m not talking about money in the sense that you’re probably thinking about money.  I’m talking about a whole paradigm shift regarding money.

If you read my earlier posts, you have an idea of how money is created in our economy through the banking system.  Now I want to share a piece of the Constitution of these United States of America.  Article I Section 8 gives Congress the power,  “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures”.

Hmmm.  It seems that the fact that we borrow our money from the Federal Reserve and have given the Federal Reserve the power to regulate the value of our money through supply and demand controls such as interest rates and “infusions into the money markets”, is counter to the law of the land.  What if the United States Treasury nationalized the Federal Reserve as a regulatory agency and monetary clearing house, and started printing it’s own money as the Constitution states?  What if the United States Government (also known a s We the People), then printed the 1.6 trillion dollars needed to repair our infrastructure and proceeded to execute a plan to do so?  What if we provided universal single payer health care the same way?  What about free post secondary education?

What about the right of the people?
