“Meanwhile, the U.S. debt remains, as it has been since 1790, a war debt; the United States continues to spend more on its military than do all other nations on earth put together, and military expenditures are not only the basis of the government’s industrial policy; they also take up such a huge proportion of the budget that by many estimations, were it not for them, the United States would not run a deficit at all.”
— David Graeber, Debt: The First 5000 Years (2011), p. 365. (via myanarchistproseandpoetry)
What mainstream “experts” don’t like to talk about is the biggest (and most unconstitutional) source of US debt: usury. Foreign Banksters shackled us into debt slavery by illegally establishing the US Corporation in 1871 and through the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. GESARA/NESARA would stop their game and they would owe us back TRILLIONS. How’s that for a stimulus?
