As people everywhere become more and more preoccupied with the the exigencies of modern living, including their financial, health and physical security, they become distracted, failing to notice the creeping inroads of governmental authority into every aspect of their lives. Eventually the desire to be protected from every conceivable threat will manifest in one-world government - it is simply a matter of time. Then, as foretold in earlier times they will loudly proclaim "At last, Peace and Security". But such peace will prove ultimately to be nothing more than a mirage. Sadly, they will come to realize that the Wild Beast of governmental control is in fact a brutal master under which no individual will prove to be secure and from which there shall be no escape.

Obama (left) seeks $4 trillion cut to deficit, higher taxes for rich ... Backs benefit programs, draws battle lines with
Dominant Social Theme: These are important times. Every word is important, every speech is necessary. America will be saved once the politicians agree on the proper plan.
Free-Market Analysis: In his recent speech, US President Barack Obama pledged to pare the projected deficit by $4 trillion in the next 12 years, and to raise taxes on America's wealthiest Americans. His presentation was reported seriously and gravely by the mainstream media that must be aware, nonetheless, that total US obligations are in the area of US$200 trillion. There is no real way that the US federal government can honor what it has already undertaken. These proposals (by both sides of the aisle) take on aspects of a dominant social theme. They are promotions, proposing unrealistic solutions to the very problems that that the process itself has created.
... President Obama pledged to pare the projected deficit by $4 trillion in the next 12 years, vowing to protect the nation's most vulnerable while pushing again for higher taxes for its richest citizens. In a 43-minute speech that mixed appeals for a united sense of purpose with sharply partisan jabs, the president laid out his vision of a country strengthened both by fewer debts and a greater diligence to solving the problems of Medicaid and Medicare. In promising to preserve those programs, he enlists his administration in the beginning of what is expected to be an epic battle with Republicans over their fate. "We are a better country because of these commitments,'' he said in an impassioned defense of Medicaid and Medicare against Republicans' push for sweeping changes. "I'll go further – we would not be a great country without those commitments." – Read More

Anthony Wile What are the chances of a US Internet Foundation for the Advancement of Free-Market Thinking (FAFMT) and The Daily Bell are pleased to bring you a short video presentation titled, Internet Kill Switch.
The video features hard-to-believe yet true events unfolding right now in Washington D.C. to try and suppress the Internet's ability to support the freedom of the press. Will the power elite be victorious in squelching Internet freedom? We surely hope not and will continue to support freedom of the press and the Internet-spawned advance of liberty and free-market thinking. We hope you enjoy the video and look forward to reading your feedback. Click here to watch.
Viewers, as well, are invited to add their financial support to our Foundation's efforts to spread the word on this and other critical freedom issues. The time to act is now. Educational efforts like those being led by FAFMT via publishing efforts like the Daily Bell and outside free-market organizations it supports are critical to the expansion of freedom-awareness supported by sites and outlets on the World Wide Web.
Today there is substantive Internet freedom. But if and the power elite standing behind him get their way, the authoritarian nightmare planned for all citizens suppressed under the control of a New World Order will move closer reality.
? Could it happen? Is it practical? The Read More
