An Independence Day Warning

Jeff Siegel

Written By Jeff Siegel

Posted July 3, 2023

Tomorrow, people from all across the United States will celebrate Independence Day, the federal holiday that commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Of course, most of us won’t think much about that.

Instead, we’ll simply share the day with family and friends, grill up some food, light some fireworks, and drink lots of beer.

And I don’t think this should be frowned upon.

You see, there’s this weird thing that happens every Independence Day where moral do-gooders try to shame those of us who don’t spend the day waxing poetic over the Declaration of Independence.

It’s certainly nice to take a moment to think about that amazing document and all that it represents, but you shouldn’t feel bad about celebrating the day by eating, drinking, and carrying on.

After all, why shouldn’t we use this day to celebrate our freedom and independence? They are gifts, and gifts are meant to be enjoyed.

Hell, the second sentence of this grand document declares that one of the unalienable rights of men is the pursuit of happiness. I’m not saying Thomas Jefferson meant you getting shit-faced at your cousin’s cookout to celebrate the Declaration of Independence, but I’m not so sure he’d disapprove, either. 

He’d certainly be far less bothered by drunken celebrations than what we’ve allowed our government to become: an out-of-control cabal of hustlers, criminals, and degenerates who are not bound by any measure of accountability for their actions.

If this weren’t the case, there would be no wars without declarations, no restrictions on personal sovereignty, no theft of your income.

There would be no such thing as eminent domain or a Patriot Act that gives the government the authority to spy on you without probable cause or a signed warrant. 

And there certainly wouldn’t be a movement to adopt a central bank digital currency (CBDC) that allows the Federal Reserve to monitor and control your assets. 

Make no mistake: There is no greater abuse of state power than the control of citizens’ wealth and assets, especially when done through the Fed, which is composed of 12 regional banks that are privately owned.

Thomas Jefferson allegedly warned about this very thing:

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless… I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

And now that we have allowed this unprecedented power of the Fed to exist, it is strengthening its control by preparing to adopt a CBDC that will literally deprive you of the basic fundamentals of economic freedom, which is the foundation of true independence. 

Of course, we’re not the type to just sit by and just let this happen.

In fact, our research team put together a new CBDC Survival Guide that will show you exactly how to protect your assets from the Fed’s CBDC mafia — and yes, I wrote “mafia” because this is absolutely an organized crime operation. It’s just that it’s been given free rein by the very people who have been charged with the responsibility of protecting our independence.

Indeed, this is a tragedy of epic proportions, but it is one that we will not let unfold without a fight. In fact, we’ve even figured out a way to make a few bucks by rejecting the Fed’s CBDC racket. 

While I certainly plan to enjoy Independence Day tomorrow by spending time with family and friends, eating lots of food, and probably getting high with my cousin, you can be sure that the very next day I’ll be at my desk continuing the good fight against those who clearly do not understand that we are all created equal, that we are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth…
