Force, Fraud, and the "Pollyanna Creep" May 13,2008

Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

One of the few powers granted to the federal government by the Constitution is that of coining money from gold and silver.
In 1971, under Richard Nixon, the government severed the remaining links binding its currency to precious metals. Since then, notes political analyst Kevin Phillips, ?Washington has been forced to gull its citizens and creditors by debasing official statistics? about our nation?s economic performance.

Arcane formulas are devised, and constantly revised, to minimize the rate of consumer inflation and unemployment. This creates a statistical phenomenon Phillips calls the ?Pollyanna Creep? ? a growing disparity between the official depiction of the economy?s performance, and the reality experienced by consumers.

This deception allows Washington to manipulate both the perceptions of the electorate and the interest rates it pays to foreign creditors while holding down cost of living adjustments for Social Security and other benefit payments.

It?s no exaggeration to say that deliberate, malicious fraud permeates everything that is done by the federal government.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
