January 29, 2021Bahia Beach, Puerto Rico
It was the summer of 2004. I remember hearing on TV that the Libertarian Party’s national convention was starting in Atlanta.
I immediately hopped in the car, hoping to find some sympathetic minds.
And at the convention I did meet some wonderful, freedom-minded people.
But the event was an unproductive circus, something like a cross between a high school pep rally and a Star Trek convention.
People in costume ran up and down the aisles chanting for their favorite candidate and getting into impromptu debates about the Constitution and Ayn Rand.
As nice and intelligent as everyone was, it felt like a giant freedom pity party.
I didn’t just want to complain. I wanted to fix it. I wanted to do something about it. And solutions were sorely lacking.
So I started educating myself more.
I dove into the federal balance sheet. I learned about the petrodollar and the debt.
That led me to discovering the complete scam of central banking, fiat currency, and the fractional reserve system.
I realized that the political and banking elite have given us war, instability, and epic financial crises.
They’ve turned Western civilization into a giant police state. And they’ve managed to brainwash the great masses so effectively that the people are crying out for more.
They rigged the system.
I wanted out of the system. So after this emotional, gut-wrenching awakening, I spent years traveling to more than 100 countries looking for freedom and opportunity.
Eventually I learned that education, prudent planning, and global thinking can rebuild much of our stolen liberty.
Yes, things are crazy.
Freedom is in decline. Governments are bankrupt. Central banks are borderline insolvent.
The financial system is in precarious condition barely held together by a patchwork of negative interest rates, currency manipulation, and misguided confidence.
We award our most esteemed prizes for intellectual achievement to phony scientists who tell us to spend our way into prosperity and borrow our way out of debt.
We give absolute power to control the money supply (and hence manipulate the price of nearly everything) to unelected bureaucrats who have a track record of failure.
Yet, we call ourselves ‘free’.
It’s complete madness. And it gets crazier with each passing month.
Take an honest look at your life…
Do you feel free right now?
Many of you would probably say ‘no’ due to the crazy lockdowns that are happening around the world.
Nothing is more important than your freedom, and tomorrow I’m going to share with you how you can protect it.
To your freedom and prosperity,
