Yesterday, the United States government agreed in principle to provide almost $8 trillion on behalf of American taxpayers. The complete story is available on Bloomberg and various other sources. The amount is more than one-half of the value of everything produced in United States last year alone.
The question of who is going to pay is settled. The citizens of the US are. This agreement is tantamount to repealing the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution which reads in part, “Neither slavery, nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for a crime…shall exist within the United States.”
If you think this is extreme consider this question, can I opt out of contributing without being put in prison? The answer of course is, no!
As a reminder the $8 trillion mentioned above does not include the unfunded liability for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Our lives and our fortunes have been pledged to the government. We, in the United States, are all slaves.
