All one needs to do is drive around Northern Virginia, NoVa, and the place reeks of greenbacks. Lots of fancy cars, and construction cranes all courtesy of the tax payers outside the DC Swamp.

No surprise here.

The largest "industry" in the U.S. right now is government. France is our future, folks.

That’s EXACTLY what I thought, and I’m from the Bay Area where a cracerbox is 1.5 million.

The first thing you think about drving around DC is “Oh. So THIS is where the money goes!!”

Is anyone shocked that the Capitol thrives while the Districts suffer?

May the odds be ever in your favor.

A common problem is returning to your parked car and the key fob won’t work because all Mercedes look alike.

Back in the 90s when i was there the whole area was getting very pricey to live. The Tysons Corner area just was nuts, Sterling was expensive to live in.

government spending, with massive debt in a printed, fiat, low-interest, currency is very easy. Leftists and social engineers particularly like it.

Same trend: more expensive, and worse traffic.

It was Bush the Younger who really kicked DC Metro into high gear when he supersized the deep state security apparatus.

All those crooked politicians taking kickbacks and doing backroom deals. How much did obamy, the Clintons and the Bush clan get away with?

This has been known for a very long time.

It is no surprise.

The Rinos will never agree to shrink government. They want the pork as much as the Dems. Otherwise we would not have NPR, Planned Parenthood funding, NEA, and on and on.

No wonder America's deeply entrenched Corrupt Ruling Establishment is defending its privileges and advantages so violently.

They will destroy America and scorch the earth before they will give them up.

This is why the results of the 2016 Presidential Election MUST be nullified.

This is what the Trump Revolution is all about.

President Trump understood this and has undertaken to free the American People from this tyranny. This is what he meant when he said: "Party's over. I'm going to clean up Washington."

And this is exactly what the endless investigations, the non-stop Media attacks, and all the other attacks on President Trump are all about.

The value of a currency is determined by what it will buy not a government “fiat”. That is an incorrect though common misunderstanding about what currency is. It is a FAITH currency.

It matters not what the government says a currency is worth just the fact that the user has faith that it is worth something.

When the currency is truly a fiat currency it will be replaced by a more trusted instrument: gold, silver, jewels, property, etc.
