The Truth About Government "Solutions"

Jul 25, 2008
It is obvious that America has become a nation of individuals who want immediate satisfaction and short-term "solutions." A perfect example is our current financial crisis-a crisis caused by the easy money policy of The Federal Reserve System. And what is amazing is that the vast majority of the people have supported this shortsighted inflationary scam.

Apparently, very few have the ability to see that artificially low interest rates and fiat money cause economic catastrophes.

Well as the old saying goes "The chickens have come home to roost." The dollar is collapsing. Gold is closing in on $1000 per ounce. Housing prices are in free-fall. Oil prices are soaring. Many people are drowning in debt. Economic productivity is stagnant. Job growth is vanishing. Government is broke. Need I say more?

Do the people demand an end to Federal Reserve easy money policies? Do they rebel against government intervention in the marketplace? Do they tell the political establishment that they are through supporting them? Do they finally scream out for the beliefs of our founding fathers-beliefs in liberty, freedom, unrestricted property rights and free enterprise? No! Instead, just as a drug addict would cry out for more dope-they cry out for more of the same poison that created the problems in the first place.

Now we have the spectacle of the Federal Reserve System systematically destroying the dollar and our economic system with more interest rate reductions and inflationary money. The only thing these "stimulation packages" will accomplish is the total collapse of our economy.

The solution is to allow interest rates to rise to their natural level so that all the mal-investments and excesses are washed out of the economic system. Of course this process is painful in the short-run-just as the withdrawal symptoms of a drug addict are excruciatingly uncomfortable. However it is the only solution if "The American Way of Life" is to survive in the long-term.

Government is the problem

Let's face it. No government program accomplishes anything but hardship and destruction. Why? Because they all violate Natural and Economic Laws. The drug war is an absolute failure. The war on poverty is a cruel joke-especially on the ones it was supposed to help. The war in Iraq is a tragedy that will end up costing 5 trillion dollars. All government programs are total disasters.

Let's define Government. It is the social apparatus established for the monopolistic exercise of violent compulsion and coercion.

That might be all fine and dandy if government was restricted to protecting life, liberty and property. Unfortunately, the role of government has evolved to that of an evil Santa Claus-one who gives "gifts" he has extorted from innocent victims. All taxes, inflation, government regulations-and prohibitions against voluntary exchanges and consumption are immoral and criminal.

Government is the problem-not the solution. Whenever you ask government to solve a problem-you are asking for another problem. Government intervention in the marketplace can only worsen the situation.

2008 is an election year. As usual you have basically only two parties to choose from. The establishment press totally ignores any third parties-such as the Libertarian Party. If you are not a democrat or republican your chances of being elected are non-existent.

Both of these parties believe in government solutions to all our problems. They resort to four methods-tax, spend, regulate and prohibit. Nobody's life, liberty and property are safe when democrats and republicans are passing legislation.

From the above you can conclude that voting for members of either party is dishonest and immoral-since the politicians (Ron Paul being the exception) that make up these political parties sell out an individual's life, liberty, freedom and property wholesale.

Now you may plead ignorance and say that you believe the candidates of your choice are honest men and women only trying to help people. I mean-honestly-does anyone actually believe that politicians are looking out for anyone's interests but their own. The facts speak for themselves. The current economic situation says it all.

The solution

There is only one solution-a system of unhampered capitalism. All government intervention must be stopped. Voluntary exchanges between peaceful individuals shall no longer be infringed upon. Governments will have no right to tell a person what he can or cannot consume. The Federal Reserve System will be abolished and the 100% Gold Standard adopted. This will stop inflation forever.

Most important-an individual's life, liberty, freedom and property will become sacred. We will have a system of pure Libertarianism. "The Libertarian Way" is the way.
