In Part I of this two-part series, we talked about the imenent US recession, the fragile situation of the European Union and, the world-wide debt bubble being a the bursting point. We also talked about the chaos the will envelop the whole world when the credit bubble is pricked by some event; be that from within the EU or from an event outside of the EU. Today we will talk about some of the options of bringing order out of the chaos and how these options should impact our thinking on the coming elections in the US.
Before we get started, we need to touch on the events of the last couple of days that are relevent to this discussion. Two or three days ago the International Monetary fund (IMF) declared the world was within two or three weeks of an economic meltdown. This declaration by the IMF was not hyperbola, but it was unusual because the last bankers would ever do is to spark panic within the financial sectors. The IMF did this for one reason only and that was to put the fear of God into the governments of France and Germany to guarantee the solvency of the EU banks. The threat by the IMF worked perfectly. Yesterday France and Germany announced they would protect the banks of the EU and immediately the world’s stock markets responded with dramatic rallies. Does this mean the that the threat of world-wide economic meltdown has gone away? Not hardly. It means only that the European Union has kicked its can down the road a little bit further.
Does anyone or any group benefit from the chaos that is coming? In a backhanded way, the answer is yes. For example, many within the Marxist/socialist camp have longed for economic chaos to occur so that they can finally lead the world into their idea of a world-wide socialist utopia. Also, the One World Order (OWO) proponents have often felt that their best shot of implementing one currency for the world with a Word Central Bank and essentially one governing body for the world is if the world were to find itself in economic chaos. And, more than a few Libertarian pundits have suggested that the only way to save America is for a total economic collapse to occur first and then people would finally be willing to listen to them and we could rebuild out of the ashes the America our Founders intended.
We needn’t spend time talking about the Marxist/socialist. We know that they are a powerful minority in America because they have patiently over the years gained control of our media, our education system, Hollywood and, and they now have one of their own occupying the White House.
But, what about the OWO types? Are they for real? When we conservatives bring up what we call the banksters and the OWO types, we are often branded as tin hatters. The OWO types are real. They are made up of the worlds largest banks in Europe and the US. They have been working hand-in-hand with the big government political elites and a few major corporations for years. Since Nixon separated the dollar from gold in 1971 and the world adopted the fiat dollar as its reserve currency, these people have for all practical purposes been running the world. The Marxist/socialist have unwittingly been used as their useful idiots.
So, how will order from chaos be restored to America? There may be several options but yours truly is only capable of seeing two.
Option 1 _ One World Order
A good friend recently sent me an e-mail with an article from ForcingChange.org titled One World, One Money. I hope you will take time to read this article. For now i want to share with some quotes that are contained in the article:
…the idea of a single global currency has been quietly batted around in banking and economist circles since the closing days of the Second World War. Over the years this call has increased in intensity. Consider some quotes,
1969: “Let me turn from digging away at the opposition to something more positive, and start with the best and worst of international monetary systems. The first-best, in my judgment, is a world money with a world monetary authority.”— Charles P. Kindleberger, [Professor of Economics, MIT], speaking at a Federal Reserve Bank of Boston conference.
1984: “I have put forward a radical alternative scheme for the next century: the creation of a common currency for all the industrial democracies with a common monetary policy and a joint Bank of Issue to determine that monetary policy…This proposal is far too radical for the near future, but it could provide a ‘vision’ or goal which can guide interim steps…” — Richard N. Cooper [professor, Harvard], speaking at a Federal Reserved Bank of Boston conference.
1998: “…the transition to a single currency for the entire world could come with a speed that might surprise many. The world might easily move from having almost 200 currencies today to having one within a decade, and twenty-five years from now, historians would wonder why it took so long to eliminate the Babel of currencies which existed in the twentieth century.” — Bryan Taylor, Chief Economist at Global Financial Data.
2001: “When VISA was founded twenty-five years ago, the founders saw the world as needing a Single Global Currency for exchange. Everything we’ve done from a global perspective has been about trying to put one piece in place after another to fulfill that global vision.” — Sarah Perry, Director of VISA’s Strategic Investment Program.
2004: “…if the global market economy is to thrive over the decades ahead, a global currency seems the logical concomitant.” — Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator for the Financial Times, former senior economist at the World Bank.
The people promoting the OWO concepts are not wearing tin hats. They are people connected to the most powerful banks in the world who in turn are supported by the big government political elites and their crony corporatist. A OWO would indeed bring about order from the chaos; but at what price? The price would be our sovereignty and most of our freedom. The idea that is America would become a footnote in history. How can this plan have any chance of being pulled off? No country, least of all America, is going to give-up its sovereignty and submit to some world authority, right? To understand how it could indeed become an acceptable solution one must let their imagination go to its limits. Try, if you can, to imagine what is implied when the IMF talked about the imminent world-wide economic melt down. folks, we are talking about world-wide panic. Trade in the world would be disrupted. There would be food shortages and people starving. There would energy shortages. Money would have no meaning. This, my friends, is what chaos means.Once the world has suffered a living hell long enough, the OWO types with the support of the political elites will offer to bring order to world once again and many will jump at the chance.
Option 2 _ The Rebirth of America
It is my opinion that the freedom loving conservatives and Libertarians of these United States are the only hope for bringing order out of the chaos without giving up our sovereignty and freedoms. The announcement by France and Germany to back-up European banks was a great blessing for us. From our point of view, the worst of all scenarios would be for the credit bubble to burst and the for the chaos to ensue before our elections. There can be little doubt that Barack Obama and the Fed would fall prey to the bankers offer. If the credit bubble stays intact until after our elections, we still have a chance to save America. We must elect those who believe strongly enough in America to resist the temptation of saving the banks once again. The path to order out of the chaos will take great will. It will be necessary to abandon our fiat dollar in favor of one backed by something(s) of real value. It will be necessary to abandon the decades of big government policy and return to the ideas of our Founders. This will be the hard choice. The easy choice will be to turn the world over to the bankers once and for all.
So, if you believe that world chaos is on the way as I do, and if the only ways to reclaim order in our world are as I described, does it affect your opinion on candidates for the coming elections? For me it does. Were we in something closer to normal times, I would be throwing support behind Herman Cain as the best among the current candidates. However, we are in anything but normal times. I believe the credit bubble will burst. I believe the world will be thrown into chaos. And, although i am not a Libertarian, I am convinced that we need Libertarians to lead us out of the chaos once it arrives on our shores. Therefore, I as Conservatives on Fire, will throw my insignificant weight behind Ron Paul. Paul is steeped in the Austrian School of economics and, in my opinion, that is what we are going to need if there is any hope of saving the America we all love.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
