Our nation is at a cross-roads. We know it. Our liberty is under relentless assault, and whether our children and grandchildren enjoy even the eroded liberty we have will depend on what we do NOW. The Constitution truly hangs by a thread.
And one of the greatest threats we face, which could provide a pretext for pulling the plug on the Constitution once and for all, is the ongoing destruction of our economy and the pending collapse of the Federal Reserve orchestrated fiat money system, with the dollar no longer backed by anything of real value. None of us has a crystal ball, so we don’t know exactly when, but at some point it will, sooner or later, come crashing down as all fiat systems do.
We need to face that fact, and deal with it. As Patrick Henry said, it is better to know the worst, and provide for it, than to delude ourselves with false hope.
So, let us accept reality but then also provide for it. That means we need to DO SOMETHING to get ready for what is coming, and we need to work hard now to rebuild the core institutions of a free republic that we have allowed to whither and die. If we restore those institutions, we can weather the storm. If we do not, then we will be weak and desperate in an economic collapse, and it is more likely that our Republic will fall.
So, the fate of this nation is in our hands. And it is especially in the hands of us veterans. If we lead, and get it done, we can save this nation. If we fail to lead, and fail to get it done, then this Republic will eventually fall. If not, us, then who?
in upcoming articles I will be writing about a full spectrum of thing we veterans must do to save this Republic, but right now I want to let you know about a new effort that will go a long way toward correcting one of our greatest weaknesses – our dependence on a fiat dollar who’s days are numbered.
The movement that is going to help do something about that dependency is called the Alternate Market Project. It has just been launched, at my urging, by Brandon Smith, who writes under the pen name “Giordano Bruno” at Neithercorp Press. Oath Keepers will be working closely with Brandon and his new org, as part of our overall mission to restore the Republic, and defend the Constitution. We will of course also be working with Dr. Edwin Vieira, who will serve as an advisor to Oath Keepers on sound money as well as on revitalizing state militias, and the Alternative Market Project will certainly utilize Dr. Vieira’s vast knowledge about constitutional money, and will be advocating his model legislation for use in the states (which has already made considerable headway, with sound money bills based on Dr. Vieira’s research being introduced across the nation), and hopes to spread the message in a very grass-roots way.
There are already many people working on solutions and on restoring the Republic, and we look forward to working with any and all who have the same goals. However, I do think it is important to have a movement that really focuses in on economic independence in all its forms, and at all levels, from the individual on up to the neighborhood, town, county and state, in both the private and public spheres. And that is why I urged Brandon Smith to take the bull by the horns and start his Alternative Market Project. In fact, Brandon and I will be speaking together this weekend at the Save America Convention in Tampa, Florida, along with John Galt of Florida. See www.saveamericaconvention.com.
Oath Keepers, this is a movement we really need to get behind and support with all of our ability. Sound money and economic independence are key foundations of a free people. Certainly, they are not the only key elements of liberty, but they are critical. Below is Brandon’s introduction to the Alternative Market Movement. Please read it, heed it, and take part. – For the Republic, Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers.
The Alternative Market Project Has Been Launched!
By Brandon Smith (aka Giordano Bruno)
Why choose to participate in a system that doesn’t work? A system that is designed to drain the people of wealth instead of enriching them and their lives? A system that is constructed upon irrational principles, faulty laws, and unstable values? A system on the verge of collapse?
This is the question that the Alternative Market Movement (AMM) poses to the American citizen. Why continue living under an economic structure that is poised to erupt, threatening you, your family, and your ability to provide a meaningful future for them? Would anyone voluntarily choose to live under the barrel of a gun their entire lives?
The only plausible answer is that most people participate in our current destructive financial system because they feel there are no other options. AMM plans to change this by offering a new choice, one which presents a solid foundation, an honest and legitimate sense of community, self sufficiency, and sound trade backed by tangible commodities instead of unsustainable debts. We will work to help each and every individual achieve greater independence and to connect with other like-minded participants in a newer, liberty based market. This market will be facilitated and administrated by communities themselves, away from bureaucracy, corporate influence, and overt regulation. It will serve the interests of the average man and woman, and not the interests of globalism and elitist hierarchy.
We believe wholeheartedly in the framework of Constitutional Law, and that no government or supranational entity has the right to overstep Constitutional boundaries for any reason, regardless of supposed intentions or mandates. We do not recognize the self proclaimed authority of corporately created and managed entities such as the Federal Reserve, the IMF, or the World Bank. We are fully opposed to the practice of fractional reserve banking, fiat currency, central banking, and other fraudulent financial Ponzi schemes. We stand against the forced centralization of countries and cultures and the erasure of national sovereignty. We believe that the first step in defending against such economic and political manipulation is to create an alternative system that safeguards the values of free markets and free peoples. We are a natural extension of the Liberty Movement which is already making great headway in American society today.
Our goal is not to centralize authority in this movement, but to encourage individual awareness, and individual action. We hope to provide the knowledge and tools necessary to make it possible for anyone, from the average working American, to the successful private business owner, to become their own leader, taking actions in their own neighborhoods and towns with the purpose of forming viable trade networks, eventually decoupling and shielding themselves from the diseased economy currently in place.
The root ideology of our mission could be expressed as follows:
Provide for yourself and others those human necessities which the corrupt establishment cannot or will not.
Through this, you make the damaging system unneeded and obsolete. Eventually, the establishment will have to come after you, openly exposing its tyrannical nature, or it will have to conform to you. In either case, you benefit.
To help Americans forward with this strategy of self determinism and economic independence, we are launching the Alt-Market website. We hope it will become a useful medium for the expansion of trade networks as well as a source of in-depth knowledge on numerous practical skills which are valued in a poor economic environment. Ultimately, we plan to move our efforts away from the internet and into cities across the country, where we will hold workshops and conventions designed to give people hands on training, as well as a forum to meet other like-minded free market proponents face to face.
Visit us at Alt-Market, and set a higher economic standard for yourself, your town, your state, and your country. It all begins when our participation in rigged establishment system ends…
