We Have Met The Fascists - And They Are Us

Here I've been worried Americans should be fearful of what I thought was our government's trend towards socialism. I've invested a lot of time on that bogeyman.

But now Gary North explains - correctly, I think - that it's too late to worry about what more the socialists might do to us. Because the fascists already have us.

And the fascists HAVE had us for almost 100 years (basically since the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913).

Here's Dr. Gary North's explanation of all this: Fascism in America

A couple of particularly juicy paragraphs to whet your appetites:

The American political system has been soft-core fascist for almost a century. Liberals love to call conservatives fascists. The problem is, the liberals are right. Of course, well-informed conservatives like to call liberals fascists, and they are correct, too. Everyone who believes in the efficiency of the so-called government-business alliance is a fascist.


We are seeing the culmination of a century of bad economic policies. Academic economists never sounded the alarm after 1936. They did not sound the alarm because they are the paid agents of the State, certified by earlier generations of paid agents of the State. The State has paid for the services of these men and women, and they perform accordingly. They understand the fundamental rule: "When you take the king's schilling, you do the king's bidding."


The academic economists say that things will recover. They tell us that it will again be business as usual. They tell us that once we get through this crisis, the American economy will boom once again. They believe in the fascist economy. They believe that government regulation is better than the free market. They believe the government-run, bankruptcy-protected banks, which we now openly have, are better than private, profit-seeking institutions that are not protected by a government-created cartel called the Federal Reserve System. They believe in fascism, and they are going to tell you that everything is fine as the fascist State extends power over every aspect of our lives.

And on the hugely important question - now that we've correctly identified the threat/reality, what are we to do about it? - he says this:

This is why it is important for you to preserve your assets by not believing the official assurances. Put your money where the experts tell you that you should not put your money. You should take your money out of those segments of the economy into which the experts say you should put your money, and will soon boom.


You had better adjust your portfolio, your career plans, and your retirement plans accordingly.


I hate !@#$ Illinois fascists.

I also hate Texan fascists, by the way. We had eight years of one.

Also, yes, I realize that the creek jumpers were socialists.

It's a paraphrase...
