Are We a Nation of Serfs? by Alvaro Alvillar

“Give me control of a nation’s money supply and I care not who makes its laws.” — Mayer Amschel Rothschild

I thought I’d take the opportunity I have through Big Hollywood to ask about a documentary I’ve recently seen. I consider myself fortunate to have been introduced to this site and all the intelligent, well informed, talented and humorous individuals it has attracted, so what better place than here for some answers, maybe more questions, or just some plain old feedback/dialogue.

Has anyone seen or heard about the 2005 documentary, “America: Freedom to Fascism” by award winning film maker Aaron Russo?

Outside of this documentary, I know very little about Russo or the other conspiracies that stem from his research into the personal income tax and control of government by private banks (like the World Trade Center bombings), so I’m not going there. I’ve never been much on conspiracies, but this is a very well done, professional and seemingly factual account of the birth of the Federal Reserve and the subsequent and permanent taxing of the income of the American people as a result. It at least (maybe) answered a two-part question I’ve had for years, that being, what is this national debt we owe and who are we indebted to? It never made sense that we, the citizens of the United States, were in debt to our own government. In other words, how is it that we are in debt to ourselves? The vast majority of us have always paid the countless taxes we’re asked to, so how do we owe more than that?

If Mr. Russo is correct, our national debt is the result of borrowing money from a private bank, not a government institution, known as the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve came into being in 1913 while much of Congress was out during the Christmas holidays and therefore did not get the opportunity to vote on it. In one night, this skeletal crew of Congressmen, “bribed” by powerful bankers, passed the Federal Reserve Act and gave this newly formed institution the authority to print all of our money, lend money to our government, charge us (taxpayers) for the privilege and then, on top of that, charge us interest.

President Woodrow Wilson signed The Federal Reserve Act into law in 1919 and said:

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

Mr. Russo’s film raises many other questions, among them:

There’s the question about why our government needs a private institution printing our own money to begin with, when Congress was given the authority to do just that in the first place and at no cost to the American people.

There’s the question of whether the Federal Reserve is actually legal to begin with.

There’s the question about whether this private banking institution, controlled by who knows who, has taken control of all our country’s gold reserves as collateral for the debt on the money they have “lent” us.

Mr. Russo raises many more questions, but the biggest question of all is why are all of us hard-working Americans allowing our wages to be taxed, when apparently, no such law exists? Where are our representatives while every penny from the personal income tax collected goes to a private bank and not one cent to infrastructure, education, defense or anything else that would benefit We The People? Apparently, it all goes to the interest we owe these unknown debtors and we’re not even making a dent on the debt!

According to the film, no one knows who these people or these banks are. There’s no auditing and therefore no accountability. They have the power to enforce the law as they see fit through the strong-arm tactics of their own police force — the I.R.S. — who are also not accountable to anyone, hence, the fear. These people can literally come to your home and/or business at anytime, take your possessions, arrest and take you away with the help of the local police, on the smallest pretense (no proof needed) and ruin your life. If you can afford it, you’re left having to make sense of it all through the costly legal resources needed to prove your innocence. When people do prove themselves innocent, not only do they not get reimbursed and made whole, they don’t get so much as an, “Oops…sorry ‘bout that.” 

The politicians and media seem to be in lock step with these people, which means they give them a free pass and any victory against them by private citizens are suppressed. And when I say “politicians,” according to the documentary, both parties are equally at fault for turning a blind eye. No party holds any moral high ground.

If this documentary has any validity, if even one of the major questions it raises cannot be honestly answered, then both the Democrat and Republican parties are responsible for allowing this to continue.

However, listen to the difference between these two quotes (separated by eight years, one president and two ideologies) on this subject:

“I believe that in both spirit and substance, our tax system has come to be un-American. Death and taxes may be inevitable, but unjust taxes are not.” — President Ronald Reagan March 28, 1985

“We cannot be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans.” — President Bill Clinton March 11, 1993

Mr. Russo also raises questions about our open borders — how Americans may soon need a National I.D. card to travel from state to state, I.D. chips on everything to track our every move, globalization, a one world currency — and more.

Some of this would have sounded like science fiction just a short while ago, but as our current president meets with the other leaders in Europe for the G20 Summit, one of the biggest topics is a new world currency — which China and Russia are pressing for. A global currency is needed if there’s going to be a New World Order … Now I’m starting to sound like a conspiracy nut, but I am concerned!

Let’s remember that right now, our government is “lending” America’s biggest companies and financial institutions almost a trillion dollars and they are now, for all practical purposes, running these businesses. They have certainly started to call the shots! Do I need to say what it is when a government runs their countries businesses?

I know what it isn’t! It’s not what the forefathers of this great country had in mind and paid for with their lives, nor is it what our Founding Fathers had in mind when they created the supreme law of the land: “The Constitution of the United States of America.” 

So, go rent this film if you haven’t seen it and for those of you who have, help me out here…got any thoughts on this? Have we already lost our freedom? Is it too late?

Let’s come together, stand strong, fight for our rights and get back to being a free nation.

That's pretty much the key thing, right there.

Some people are born to be serfs, others aren’t. The problem is when the serfs reach 51% in a democracy, then we get crap like we are dealing with now.

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

and

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration

Stated otherwise: The sky is blue and not blue.

The Federal Reserve is bad.
Income Tax is bad.
Popular election of senators is bad.

I believe Wilson was involved in all of these. He's always on my list of worst presidents.

I do see what you’re saying... however, I think some people need to see the connection there.

Kudos to Russo and his effort to 'wake-up' a sleep-walking citizenry here.

As to the question, 'are we a nation of serfs?' Can only say; there is no question we are on the 'road to serfdom' and picking up speed as we now being herded along; faster than ever and the semi-darkened 'Serf City' clearly in sight. (Did we miss perhaps, that we already passed through the gates into 'Serf Country'?)

Love Alvillar's 'flag' - with 'get up/stand up/challenge. Only need a 'WAKE-Up' as well.

That said; would like to put this one; as a sticker on my car! And leave on the windshield of anyone supporting an 'Obama' sticker.

(Am amazed that Obama can travel to Europe and literally 'give America' over to them. How can he do this; save in his own mind; he IS NOT A KING. Does he have the authority to make such drastic changes?)

In America no one (legally) is ‘born a serf’! At least that’s the way originally it was..

“”Some people are born to be serfs, others aren’t. The problem is when the serfs reach 51% in a democracy, then we get crap like we are dealing with now.””

You make a very good point here. Most of the people on this site were never meant to survive in serfdom.

A lot of the countries that we have tried to shove democracy on in the past view it as "mob rule". I never thought the United States of America would ever fall into that category until I woke up on Nov 5, 2008 to the United Socialist States of Amerika under the rule of Baraq Hussein mohammed 0bama.

Serfdom:
“a member of a servile feudal class bound to the land and subject to the will of its owner”

Socialism isn’t feudalism, but the socialist slave is a subject to the state, which the majority of the subjects are willing slaves. This class of people have not been given a name yet.

Serfs were generally required to work every third day for the landlord in addition to rents, fines, and numerous fees.

Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 - December 19, 1968), and some of us are old enough to remember him running for President, was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.

Norman Thomas said this in a 1944 speech:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

No, it’s a surprise. But since he was a Democrat, he may have been lying.

1. “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”
— James Madison
2. “A revolution is coming — a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough — But a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability.”
Robert F. Kennedy, Senate speech 1963.

3.
“God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.
The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is
wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts
they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,
it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...
And what country can preserve its liberties, if it’s rulers are not
warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of
resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as
to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost
in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
It is its natural manure.”

Thomas Jefferson.

One, could consider a revolution is “brewing.”
