Declare Your Financial Independence!

While we are in the spirit of our country’s independence, it’s time for Americans to take control of their finances and declare their financial independence!

Our Federal Government has proven to be a poor steward of our money. Obviously the politicians are not concerned about our country’s mushrooming debt, and given their poor track record financial responsibility, we must take responsibility for our own financial well being.

We have been told that Uncle Sam will take care of us at retirement with Social Security and Medicare, these systems are past broken. According to a recent blog on Heritage.Org’s website, currently the unfunded debt for these programs is upwards of $60 TRILLION! These programs are nothing more than Ponzi schemes cleverly disguised as social programs, ironically with NO SECURITY.

Just as Founding Fathers broke free from the establishment when creating our Declaration of Independence, we must break free from these chains of bondage. What we need is a system for finance based on self-reliance and independence! Start your own financial revolution by taking control of your finances.

When you look at our current system for saving and accumulating wealth, it is weighted heavily towards the financial institutions. Our educational system, our accounting system and the financial advisors, are all dependent on the government and these financial institutions. We are held captive by the cartel of mega-banks, as described by G. Edward Griffin in his now widely accepted book, The Creature from Jekyll Island A Second Look at The Federal Reserve.

As I write this, President Obama is asking Congress to raise the debt ceiling, increase government spending and increase taxes to supposedly stimulate the economy. This is exactly what got our country in the mess that it’s in. The only way to stimulate the economy is STOP SPENDING money they do not have. Only then can we lower taxes and decrease inflation.

In our personal lives we understand that spending money we do not have by utilizing credit lines and credit cards creates debt. We also understand that bad credit, bankruptcy and foreclosures are real, so in order to avoid these pitfalls, financial independence is crucial.

Yet, we fall victim to the promises of the politicians to win our votes and create more laws. They dangle “free” money, college loans, mortgages and low interest credit to us like carrots. Student loan debt has now surpassed credit card debts as personal debt increases and college graduates can not get a job.

FIRE, as it is respectfully called for, Finance, Insurance and Real Estate industry, has imploded. Middle-aged men have lost their careers and may never work again. The economies of those involved, according to the FIRE-economy website, Commercial banks, savings & loans, credit unions, finance/credit companies, securities & investment, venture capital, hedge funds, private equity & investment firms, insurance real estate, mortgage bankers, and brokers accountants

All of these involved have been propped up by government programs like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Now the American Dream has become the American Nightmare! The Federal Government has poured $317 Billion into Fannie and Freddie according to http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/true-cost-fannie-freddie-bailouts-317-bi  Billions more of taxpayer dollars have gone to bailout mega-banks and financial institutions including AIG, Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, General Motors, and the list goes on… http://money.cnn.com/news/specials/storysupplement/bankbailout

Now comes along Helicopter Ben and he’s dropping money from the sky to save the world. Quantitative Easing has cost Americans BILLIONS! Businessweek found it necessary to poke fun at Fed Chairman Bernanke.

So, you understand our nation is in trouble. The question is, do you want to do something about it? If you do nothing, then you can watch your wealth erode away to taxes and inflation. You will be a slave to government mandated programs and the financial institutions that hold the purse strings. It doesn’t matter if you pay cash or finance, in the words of Nelson Nash, “You finance everything that you buy.”

As stewards of our finances we must learn to take control of our personal economy, therefore ridding ourselves of government dependence. The idea of “retirement” is actually a government term that perpetuates dependency. Sadly, most employees will never have enough to support this dream of retirement that has been sold to them.

While true unemployment numbers hover around 20%, millions continue looking for jobs while trades and crafts are available in their backyard. And, the internet has given us markets never imagined before.

As governments collapse across the globe, history is repeating itself and prophecy is being fulfilled. As talks continue towards a world currency and taxes on the “rich”, our Congress refuses to balance the budget and stop their reckless spending. Financial markets have crashed before, and they will crash again…Yet, Americans still follow the financial advice of radio hosts who tell them to max out their 401k contributions. Already identified as targets by your friends in congress, these ticking time-bombs have never recovered from recent crashes.

What is a family to do? Whatever happens, you can protect your family name and legacy by controlling your finances today. This erosion does not have to affect you in the drastic ways that it sadly will affect most families.

Our system of earning, saving and investing money simply is broken. It relies way too heavily on the tag team of government and mega-banks and financial institutions, and way too little on the self-reliance and individualism that made our nation great!

You can create your own financial independence and take control of your money. Declare your freedom and make the remainder of 2011 as important as our country’s revolution in 1776.

It’s Your Money – Protect it or Perish!

Your lifetime of hard work, and your family are in jeopardy. The time is now to stand up for your rights as a citizen and protect your faith, family and finances – or perish. Educate yourself on the true history of our country and expand your knowledge of money so you can live a life free from tyranny.

Today our liberty is being threatened because of the power of government. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and The Federal Reserve (Fed), ironically created the same year (1913), are seizing land, assets and devaluing our dollar. Your money is being confiscated to fund illegal operations and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

It saddens me to have to tell you these things – I apologize for being straightforward… But my mission is to spread the gospel… about God’s love and about your money… to reveal the facts and the truth.

The United States became what we are because of faith, family and free enterprise. A hundred years ago we were free people, with less government regulation and taxes than the rest of the world. We owned land, produced our own goods, and we believed in Christ, family and our constitution.

God warned us in the Bible of the dangers of government and greed:

“While they promise them LIBERTY, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.” 2PE 2:19

“My people are destroyed for LACK OF KNOWLEDGE: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” HO 4:6

“For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person PERISH, and leave their wealth to others.” PS 49:10

“The good man is PERISHed out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.” MIC 7:2

Our founding fathers also warned us:

“I am sure there never was a people, who had more reason to acknowledge a divine interposition in their affairs, than those of the United States; and I should be pained to believe that they have forgotten that agency, which was so often manifested during our Revolution, or that they failed to consider the omnipotence of that God who is alone able to protect them.” ~George Washington

“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.” ~Thomas Jefferson

“God grant that not only the love of liberty but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that a philosopher may set his foot anywhere on its surface and say: This is my country.” ~Ben Franklin

As a United States Citizen you should be outraged at what is happening to your country. Right before our eyes, history is being rewritten and our freedoms are being stolen from us by amendments to our beloved constitution. Hardly a day goes by when Congress is not adding, deleting or changing this cherished model for our independence.

Currently, Congress is debating whether or not to pass legislation that would alter the powers of the Federal Reserve. Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX), has worked tirelessly in his “Audit the Fed” bill HR 1207 and S 604. The Fed and the Obama administration are fighting this bill to retain power and control of our money.

The bill was gathering momentum until Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) caved in and sold-out under pressure by the Federal Reserve and the Obama Administration, and a new bill is now being circulated. The new version of the bill will likely give the Fed even more power, exempting monetary policy decisions, discounting window operations, and agreements with foreign central banks from Government Accounting Office (GAO) audits.

“The current fiscal policy is unsustainable. We are heading to a future where we’ll have to double federal taxes or cut federal spending by 60%.” ~David Walker, Comptroller General of the United States GAO

David Walker served under both Democratic and Republican administrations. He isn’t trying to get elected he’s taking an honest approach to fiscal policies and economics…

Our markets are in turmoil and volatility is at an all time high. Blame is being thrown around another bailout is on the horizon. This time it is Greece and the U.S. Taxpayers will fund a major portion of the Greek bailout. The Federal Reserve provides 20% of the money for the IMF, and they are the entity that will lend the money. The bailout will be used to pay back the banks that made unwise loans to Greece previously, so they will be saved while taxpayers absorb the losses.

Most people’s impression of the Fed is that they control the money supply and protect us from recessions and depressions through monetary policy, Hogwash!
The Fed is a cartel, originally created by wealthy bankers. G. Edward Griffin, author of the classic book, ‘The Creature From Jekyll Island’ outlines how and why the Fed was created in his free, downloadable recording found here: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/creature.html

“The Federal Reserve is the chief culprit behind the economic crisis. Its unchecked power to create unlimited amounts of money out of thin air brought us the boom and bust cycle and caused one financial bubble after another. Since the Fed’s creation in 1913 the dollar has lost more than 96% of its value, and by recklessly inflating the money supply the Fed continues to distort interest rates and intentionally erode the value of the dollar.” http://www.ronpaul.com/

“Economic affairs cannot be kept going by magistrates and policemen.” ~Ludwig von Mises

A free market economy, as followers of Austrian Economics believe, is the answer to many of America’s financial problems. On the other hand, mainstream economists and followers of the Keynesian model, believe that government should control monetary supply through regulation, deposit insurance and a flexible, fiat currency.

The Austrian Theory of economics is taught and practiced at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama. Lew Rockwell, notable author and libertarian activist, founded the Mises Institute. He also publishes the blog, http://www.lewrockwell.com/ , where he warns of the threats of socialism, among other things.

“Workers and consumers are, of course, identical.” ~Ludwig von Mises

What does all of this have to do with you, your family and your money? You are the engine that drives government. Government feeds off of the people. They exist because of our money, derived from taxes.

How can we protect ourselves? By standing up to big government and educating ourselves on economic policy. Contact your representatives and let them know how you feel. Vote and be heard.

Why should you be concerned? Your freedom depends on it, “Use it or lose it.” Your children and grandchildren will be faced with debt beyond their control and will be forever enslaved to foreign governments and elite bankers.

On December 16th, 1773, people just like you and me, “radicals” from Boston, Massachusetts, formed the Sons of Liberty. They boarded three East India Company ships in Boston Harbor and threw 342 chests of tea into the water. This event was in protest of oppressive British taxation and tyrannical rule. It became known as the Boston Tea Party and paved the way towards our country’s independence.

Today we are faced with similar circumstances. If we do nothing and do not learn from history, we are destined for failure. Money creates power, and unfortunately, this power in the wrong hands can destroy our nation.

Money and banking are essential in our society, however, when we depend on the government and financial institutions for money, we become slaves to their system. Our knowledge of how these systems work will protect us from their bondage and increase our ability to achieve financial success.

Saving money is what built this country. In recent times we have been led to believe that “investing” in uncertain markets and with banks is the key to prosperity, when in fact this is part of the problem.

You can protect your family and your wealth by creating a system of finance that is independent of traditional banking models. Using a financial tool that out dates the Fed and the IRS, you can virtually become your own banker. This tool is called dividend paying, whole-life insurance. You may have been told by my media entertainers, parading as financial gurus, that whole-life insurance is a bad investment, they are wrong.

Life insurance is the only financial instrument that can guarantee that what you want to happen, will happen. While stock markets have plunged, owners of this centuries old financial tool have prospered. And, when properly administered, it can be used to create your own privatized family banking system that can live on for generations.

NOW is the time to ACT while you have time.

Until next time, Protect Your Freedoms!

Government Budgeting or Tax and Spending?

Debt to Consume 90% of GDP by 2020 According to CBO

Just this week the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released the administration’s budget numbers, reflecting the debt to Gross Domestic Product (GDP). According to their own predictions, debt will consume 90% of GDP by the year 2020.

How can we as citizens depend on a government who can not live within its means? We must live within our means in order to survive, yet our politicians refuse not to. Instead they live off of taxpayers as a parasite lives off of its host.

According to Merriam-Websters definition of budget: bud·get
Pronunciation: \ˈbə-jət\ a : a statement of the financial position of an administration for a definite period of time based on estimates of expenditures during the period and proposals for financing them b : a plan for the coordination of resources and expenditures c : the amount of money that is available for, required for, or assigned to a particular purpose.

Does it sound like the administration has planned for financing their expenditures? Do you think they have the resources available for funding their proposals? Where do you think they will get the money?

Take a look at the history of the marginal Federal Income Tax:

You’ll notice that taxes spiked up considerably after the “Great Depression” and when Social Security was created. Do you see any similarities today?

Of course, you understand that you also pay other taxes. As a matter of fact in recent years personal taxes increased 42% faster than personal income. State and local government taxes increased 168% faster than national income. The typical American pays more in taxes than they do on food, shelter, and clothing combined.

Here are some examples of taxes we pay. State Income Tax, Social Security Tax, Medicare Tax, Property Tax, School Tax, Sales Tax, Water Tax, City Tax, County Tax, Gasoline Tax, Airport Tax, Hotel Tax, Cable TV Tax, Unemployment Tax, Cigarette Tax, Corporate Income Tax, Marriage License Tax, Liquor Tax, Fishing License Tax, Food and Beverage Tax, Hunting License Tax, Road Usage Tax (truckers), Estate Tax, Luxury Tax, Recreational Vehicle Tax, Utility Tax, Septic Permit Tax, Well Permit Tax, Road Toll Booth Tax, Vehicle Sales Tax, Workers Compensation Tax, Trailer Reg. Tax, Watercraft Registration Tax, Long Term Capital Gains Tax, Short Term Capital Gains Tax, Telephone Federal Excise Tax, Telephone State and Local Tax, Telephone Usage Charge Tax, Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax.

There are few ways that you can shelter your money from the onslaught of taxes, so we must consider them all when doing our own budgeting. One such way is by NOT depending on the government. Are you the least bit suspicious when the government creates a plan to give you a tax break on the money that they have taxed you on in the first place. Consider Qualified Plans and the Federal Income Tax.

Another option you may want to consider is banking, but not in the sense that you may be accustomed to. For example, do you find it ironic that the very banks that we as taxpayers were asked to bailout, ask us to invest our money with them? Why is it that banks want to lend us money when we have it, but will not when we need it?

By Becoming Your Own Banker™ and banking with your family you can actually end your dependency on traditional financial institutions and government programs. You can learn how to create a system of finance and your own lifetime bank. https://bankforlife.wordpress.com/

Infinite Banking teaches the process of using your current flow of finances versus consumption of money. Utilizing this concept integrates protection and wealth accumulation enabling you to enhance your assets without creating additional liabilities. Traditional banks understand this, yet they tell us to do the opposite, forcing us into financial slavery.

You owe it to yourself and your family to educate yourself further. Take control of your money now by controlling how your money flows. Read the book Becoming Your Own Banker™ here: http://legacyinsuranceagency.com/byob

BEWARE: You Are A Target!

Are The Politicians About To Increase Your Taxes?

It’s even worse than we feared! The politicians and Congress are after our money, in larger ways than anyone could have ever imagined. We all feel the pain of taxes, and have feared that they could go sky high, just like they have in the past. But, no one is ready for the full scale assault the leaders in Washington are planning. Everything You Own Will Be Affected By Taxes!

Our budget deficit is already skyrocketing, and it is only going to get worse. You know that our country is in a real mess, and the problem has only been perpetuating for years. Much of this growing snowball has been caused by an archaic tax system and overspending by our Government. Not to mention a failure to address the problems of our social programs. But, instead of using common sense to solve problems, our political representatives have done their best to make things worse. No matter what your tax bracket, your age, or your net worth, everything you own will be subject to vicious attacks!

The Obama administration is ready to unvail another so-called stimulus plan. It will be disguised, and they won’t call it a stimulus plan, but make no mistake… you will be paying for it.

The administration’s health care reform bill has ran into some opposition, and it is unclear what the ultimate outcome will be. However, there is no question that it will cost BILLIONS… if not TRILLIONS of dollars. And, where will the money come from???

Have you heard about the Green Treaty? You can watch a video from Lord Christopher Monckton here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMe5dOgbu40 This treaty will cost our country billions!

If you have any doubt that Global Warming is a hoax, then please take the time to visit this website formed by over 31,000 scientists who say that it is: http://petitionproject.org/

With his new Nobel Peace Prize in hand, President Obama is set to expand our war efforts by sending as many as 40,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. All while the President avoids direct questions and only alludes to what our real course of action will be. Meanwhile, election fraud runs rampant in Afghanistan, and our troops are faced with indecision. Regardless of what happens, our spending on the war will cost our families for generations to come.

Plain and simple, government is a parasite that sucks money out of taxpayers. The politicians always find a way to disguise their spending in a way that makes it look like we need their help. In other words they try to fix their problems by making us think they are helping us, read qualified plans, bailouts and stimulus. It always takes more tax dollars to pay for their spending.

Policymakers are now eyeing other ways to cover the costs of their new initiatives. The latest idea, which seems to have overwhelming support from the Democrat majority, is to start Taxing You for every securities transaction you make. You read that right, our politicians want to tax you for trading in the stock market!

The Economic Policy Institute is considering a national transaction tax that could raise $100-$150 Billion a year. All stock trades would be taxed at a rate of 0.1% to 0.25% of the value of the trade, and the tax would be levied on all financial transactions.

Though most have missed it, the Transaction Tax has already found its way into law. The President, at the urging of House Democratic leaders, submitted legislation to “recoup” from the financial-services industry any eventual shortfall in the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP.

Representative Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said he supported the idea of recouping future losses from the industry: “I was one of the ones who suggested.” Former Federal Reserve Chairman, Paul Volcker, said “it might be interesting” if Congress ordered further study of the idea of a transactions tax.

The reality is that any time Congress has raised taxes, the result has been higher unemployment and lower standards of living. Think back to the Carter years, 17% interest rates and some of the highest taxes in our lifetimes. Well, we are faced with that same scenario again. Higher Taxes are not the answer, but they are coming…

You see, some politicians think that because you’ve worked hard to get where you are, then you should subsidize those who have not. How do you feel about that?

Regardless of your income, new and higher taxes will affect you and your family. If you earn more, and pay more in taxes, then obviously you have been pegged, if you lose your job or you retire, then you will be robbed as well.

When you look at the history of taxes, and what the politicians are calling for, things don’t look good. And, if you die under current law they will take even more!

The bottom line is that if you make a substantial income, you could soon see your taxes double!”

And, don’t be fooled with recent stock market gains, there is a hidden factor. INFLATION is the STEALTH TAX! Have you noticed how much things cost these days? What will it be like when we retire? Even if we do save more money, it’s going to be worth less when we actually need it, UNLESS we have a plan to combat inflation.

What can we do about these HUGE problems? I decided that if I was concerned about these problems, then others must be too. And, many of my clients that were seeing their incomes increase now, were concerned about FUTURE TAXES.

So, I decided to make available to you a free report that outlines exactly how taxes can effect your income now and at retirement. The problems that qualified plans like IRA’s, SEP’s and 401k’s can cause. And, what you can do about it now to prevent being taxed into the poor house!

Fortunately, this report identifies problems and outlines solutions, along with simple steps you can take now to prevent the problems later. All you have to do is enter your name and email and I will instantly send you your free report. It could save you and your family MILLIONS in taxes.
If you want to avoid overpaying your taxes, and don’t want to leave your family with a hefty tax bill, get a copy of this eye-opening report for yourself. After all, wouldn’t you like to know if you’re being fooled?
