Gee, if we had one central bank that owned all the property in the world – and we had Universal Basic Income – then nobody would own anything – and we could all rent a place to live.

Or on the other hand we could address the illegal activities of banks and other financial institutions.

We could stop the “inflation tax” by greatly curtailing Federal Government Expenditures.

We could bring back manufacturing by simplifying the tax code and only pursuing those environmental protection measures that actually make sense.

We could enable the middle class by eliminating a ton of regulations – that seem designed to make small business operations difficult. It is as if everything will soon be turned into a big box store.

We live in a country where it is very easy to become homeless. And until we get problems with our political leadership worked out – the homeless deserve all of our compassion.
