Way back when I was a little, little boy I asked my grandfather, why do we vote?
He replied, we vote so we can elect people who represent our views and can convey them to the country, change laws and make decisions that will benefit us all as a whole.
Needless to say at the tender age of 7 I believed all this and further more had the utmost faith that these superior beings in parliament knew exactly what they were doing. How wrong was I…!
By the time I became old enough to vote I had already witnessed privatisation of the railways, collapse of more manufacturing and production companies than I can count and a public health service so short of cash that the wards themselves were health hazards.
But my generation took up the call and reversed the conservative majority with our vote; we answered the rally cry of change, the promise of a bright new dawn, a “Booming Briton”.
Well what can I say we brought into the media hype? A media controlled or coerced by the political spin doctors. Or was it the other way down?
This same media that delivered the New Labour is the same one that struck the nail in the coffin. And wasn’t that the same as it was for the Conservatives and Dame Margret Thatcher.
The point I am trying to make is our elected government own and controls NOTHING.
The rail network. Semi/Privatised.
The health service. Semi/Privatised.
Public housing. Semi/Privatised.
.Prisons/Justice system Semi/Privatised
Road network. Semi/Privatised.
So there for shouldn’t we be voting for the corporations to rule, as there the only ones who can make a change to the society we live in.
Last thought; When all of these services were privatised, surly the money from there sale should have gone back to the public, after all they were owned by us, the people. I didn’t get my check through the post…did you?
Giant bank holding companies now own airports, toll roads, and ports; control power plants; and store and hoard vast quantities of commodities of all sorts. They are systematically buying up or gaining control of the essential lifelines of the economy. How have they pulled this off, and where have they gotten the money?
In a letter to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke dated June 27, 2013, US Representative Alan Grayson and three co-signers expressed concern about the expansion of large banks into what have traditionally been non-financial commercial spheres. Specifically:
[W]e are concerned about how large banks have recently expanded their businesses into such fields as electric power production, oil refining and distribution, owning and operating of public assets such as ports and airports, and even uranium mining.
After listing some disturbing examples, they observed:
According to legal scholar Saule Omarova, over the past five years, there has been a “quiet transformation of U.S. financial holding companies.” These financial services companies have become global merchants that seek to extract rent from any commercial or financial business activity within their reach. They have used legal authority in Graham-Leach-Bliley to subvert the “foundational principle of separation of banking from commerce”. . . .
It seems like there is a significant macro-economic risk in having a massive entity like, say JP Morgan, both issuing credit cards and mortgages, managing municipal bond offerings, selling gasoline and electric power, running large oil tankers, trading derivatives, and owning and operating airports, in multiple countries.
A “macro” risk indeed – not just to our economy but to our democracy and our individual and national sovereignty. Giant banks are buying up our country’s infrastructure – the power and supply chains that are vital to the economy. Aren’t there rules against that? And where are the banks getting the money? ...

Step into the “Wayback Machine” and journey back in time to:
1932: Silver was selling for about $0.25 per ounce (average annual price per Kitco.com). Our $100 bill would buy about 400 ounces.
1962: Silver was selling for about $1.20 per ounce. Our $100 bill would buy about 83 ounces.
1982: Silver was selling at about $10.60 per ounce. Our $100 bill would buy about 9 ounces. (Early in 1980 silver spiked to about $50 per ounce for a day or so and then crashed.)
2012: Silver was selling for about $31 per ounce. Our $100 bill would buy about 3 ounces.
Today: Silver prices have been volatile. Our $100 bill will buy perhaps 4 ounces of silver.
Over the course of the last 100 years, during which we have been blessed with the Federal Reserve and massive government spending, our $100 bill no longer buys 400 ounces of real physical silver; now it will purchase only about 4 ounces. ...

It is purported that Napoleon once said of China "Let her sleep, for when she wakes, she will shake the world" as if aware of a destiny yet written. Raymond Wheeler was one of the pre-eminent researchers in the area of cycles. He amassed volumes of historical data from cycles of war, civilizations, business cycles and weather going back over 2500 years. Based on his records, he discovered a cycle where every 510 years there is an alternating shift of power between east and west. There seems to be no dearth of similar predictions in the annals of metaphysical literature. However, if reading tea leaves or interpreting a pile of bones on the ground isn't your cup of tea, evidence of such a future seems to be presenting itself in the financial and geopolitical affairs of today.
Unless you are Woody Allen and have just been revived out of cryostasis, you are now aware of an extraordinary series of events that are now occurring in our financial system, namely, the drainage of gold from western vaults. Call it money, call it a tier 1 asset or call it play-doh, it is the one commodity that has withstood the vicissitudes of the contingent world and has cyclically been the bedrock of financial systems until it wasn't. ...
