A new golden rule

In these tumultuous times every facet of our great nation seems to be facing financial collapse with no end in sight. The stock market, jobs, housing and banks all seem to be tipping on the edge of ruin. If you’re trying to figure out what’s going on or where to turn, join the club. However, if you’re attempting to understand why, remember the golden rule. The golden rule simply stated goes like this: “He who has the gold makes the rules.”

It might seem as though “We the People” are running the show, electing our presidents and congress, who are going to represent us and govern the country through good times and bad. Well guess again! George Washington and crew have been long gone and so are their values. The United States I being run by the military industrial complex, the Federal Reserve, huge conglomerate corporations and billionaires from every corner of the globe. They only care about two things: money and power.

“Our” government is currently giving away trillions of dollars; in many cases the recipients and amounts are classified. Who really is getting bailed out here?

By electing Barack Obama tens of millions of people think hope and change is coming. Well if you think that, you’re in for a rude awakening. His Cabinet appointees are the same power players that have been around for years. Hope and change is coming to a community near you, only if Henry Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Robert Gates say so. You can take that to the bank.
