Do You Think Our Money Supply is Safe?

I try to keep track of economic data as economics has been a lay study of mine since college. In recent years I notice our money supply increasing at an alarming rate. Why is this important you ask? Well if oil were not rare and hard to get it would not be nearly as valuable as it is. Just think what would happen if tomorrow we discovered an easily accessible oilfield in the United States that roughly doubled the worlds known oil reserves? Well first thing our dependence on foreign oil would be solved but also the world price for oil would be cut in half!

Now, what happens when you increase the supply of money?

If you guessed that it's purchasing power would decrease you would have been correct. Just as oil producing nations trade their oil for dollars (or Yen, Euros, Pesos, Pounds, Franks, Rubles, or any other currency) they then trade those dollars for what they want. So in the scenario above if you double the known oil reserves and the price of oil is cut in half the oil producing countries can only buy half of what they used to be able to buy. The other side of the coin is what about the money. If, as is historically the case, oil producers traded their oil for U.S. Dollars then they would want twice as many dollars for their oil as they had before if we had doubled our supply of money.

This is called inflation. You have seen it since you were small. Just remember back to when you were a child. What did you pay for a soda, a hotdog, a movie ticket,.....

Now below is a chart from the St. Lois Federal Reserve about the sum of all money in aggregate. What do you notice?

To see the full report go to:

Do you notice that big spike in 2008/2009?

What does this mean?

How does this affect you?

It means that your dollars will buy less now than before the huge increase in money supply. There is a lag between the increase and when people feel the effects but it will come.

If you want to learn more simply Google any of the following: money supply, inflation, hyperinflation, dollar devaluing, ......

By the way this is not being done by the Federal Government, Congress,or President Obama. This is being done by the Federal Reserve.

By the way the Federal Reserve has NEVER been audited since it's inception in 1913. This means that no one knows exactly what the Federal Reserve is doing!

There is currently a bill in Congress known as HR1207 and S604 to audit the Federal Reserve. The bill calls only for a disclosure of information and an audit of the Federal Reserve that all govt. agencies and most corporations undergo annually. It is not an audit like the IRS does to people. It is a check by an independent person or organization of the accounting methods and practices they use. This will also disclose how the Fed does business.

Don't you think that after almost 100 years we should know what they are doing?

If you agree please call or email your Congressman and Senators. Ask them to support HR1207 and S604!

EPA's Secret Document

Sen. Inhofe discusses the Cap-and-Trade legislation that passed in the U.S. House and the EPA's secret document on greenhouse gases. The EPA is perpetrating a fraud by burying this important study.

Call our Senators and tell them to vote "NO" to the cap and trade bill.

Senator Mark Warner - (202) 224-2023

Senator Jim Webb - (202) 224-4024

The National Budget MUST BE balanced!
The public debt MUST BE reduced!
The ARROGANCE of the authorities MUST BE moderated and controlled!
The payments to foreign governments MUST BE reduced if the nation doesn't want to go

Who said that?
Cicero in 55 B.C.

Hmmmmmmmm, lets see.... humans have not changed in the past 2000 years!
How pitiful is that!

National Health Care Freedom Rally

About a dozen of the Franklin County Patriots took part in the National Health Care Freedom Rally by visiting the offices of Virginia Senators Warner and Webb in Roanoke on Friday July 17th. The group coordinated with the Roanoke Tea Party and local members of Campaign For Liberty. All together there were over 50 people who took part in the organized effort of the National Health Care Freedom Rall. Many others took part individually by writing letters, emails, making phone calls, and stopping by the Senate Offices on their own (not with the group).

I did a story on my website currently it is up on the homepage but in a few days it will only be viewable at

The Roanoke Times also did a story with their usual bias and slant. It is viewable at:

If you are wondering what a socialized healthcare system is like watch this.

I have a sneaking suspicion that we are having a positive effect….. check out these articles.

Republican Party of Virginia Creed


That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers is essential to the moral fiber of the nation.

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense.

That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations.

That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government.

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society.

That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice.

Democratic Party of Virginia Creed:

(I was unable to find a current creed for the Democratic Party of Virginia. The only thing I found was the party platform from 1852. It seems to me they have moved far, far away from their platform. But you need to decide for yourself!)

Resolved, That the American democracy place their trust in the intelligence, the patriotism, and the discriminating justice of the American people.

Resolved, That we regard this as a distinctive feature of our political creed, which we are proud to maintain before the world as the great moral element in a form of government springing from and upheld by the popular will; and we contrast it with the creed and practice of federalism, under whatever name or form, which seeks to palsy the will of the constituent, and which conceives no imposture too monstrous for the popular credulity.

Resolved, therefore, That, entertaining these views, the democratic party of this Union, through their delegates assembled in a general convention, coming together in a spirit of concord, of devotion to the doctrines and faith of a free representative government, and appealing to their fellow-citizens for the rectitude of their intentions, renew and reassert before the American people the declaration of principles avowed by them when on former occasions, in general convention, they have presented their candidates for the popular suffrages.

1. That the federal government is one of limited powers, derived solely from the constitution, and the grants of power made therein ought to be strictly construed by all the departments and agents of the government; and that it is inexpedient and dangerous to exercise doubtful constitutional powers.

2. That the constitution does not confer upon the general government the power to commence and carry on a general system of internal improvements.

3. That the constitution does not confer authority upon the federal government, directly or indirectly, to assume the debts of the several States, contracted for local and internal improvements or other State purposes; nor would such assumption be just or expedient.

4. That justice and sound policy forbid the federal government to foster one branch of industry to the detriment of any other, or to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another portion of our common country; that every citizen, and every section of the country, has a right to demand and insist upon an equality of rights and privileges, and to complete an ample protection of person and property from domestic violence or foreign aggression.

5. That it is the duty of every branch of the government to enforce and practice the most rigid economy in conducting our public affairs, and that no more revenue ought to be raised than is required to defray the necessary expenses of the government, and for the gradual but certain extinction of the public debt.

6. That Congress has no power to charter a national bank; that we believe such an institution one of deadly hostility to the best interests of the country, dangerous to our republican institutions and the liberties of the people, and calculated to place the business of the country within the control of a concentrated money power, and above the laws and the will of the people; and that the results of democratic legislation in this and all other financial measures upon which issues have been made between the two political parties of the country, have demonstrated, to candid and practical men of all parties, their soundness safety, and utility in all business pursuits.

7. That the separation of the moneys of the government from banking institutions is indispensable for the safety of the funds of the government and the rights of the people.

8. That the liberal principles embodied by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, and sanctioned in the constitution, which make ours the land of liberty and the asylum of the oppressed of every nation, have ever been cardinal principles in the democratic faith; and every attempt to abridge the privilege of becoming citizens and the owners of the soil among us ought to be resisted with the same spirit that swept the alien and sedition laws from our statute-books.

9. That Congress has no power under the constitution to interfere with or control the domestic institutions of the several States, and that such States are the sole and proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs not prohibited by the constitution; that all efforts of the abolitionists or others made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions.
