What do Pirates have to do with Freedom?

 You might just be surprised! Now don't get me wrong, I have no love of thieves, but piracy starts as a questioning of what thievery is.

As Vee would say “Theft implies ownership, and you cannot steal from those who do not own”

Piracy has historically been a response to tyranny. When you are the victim of a crime, you go to the police [although they have only existed in the last hundred years]. Before that you went to the town leaders or the castle guards. The problem arises when your leaders become corrupt…where do you go to then?

well, read on....

Lest we forget, the United States were founded by a treasonous lot, who thought they knew better than the existing Powers That Be as to which laws needed to be obeyed.

We are living in a situation not all that different than that dramatized in Pirates of the Caribbean….

“In order to affect a timely halt to deteriorating conditions and to insure the common good, a state of emergency is declared for these territories. By decree, the following statutes are temporarily amended:

The right to assembly: suspended

The right to Habeas Corpus: suspended

The right to legal counsel: suspended

The right to verdict by jury: suspended

By decree all persons found guilty of piracy, or aiding a person convicted of piracy, or associating with a person convicted of piracy shall be sentenced to hang by the neck until dead.”

From the opening of POTC Worlds End

In other words, if you are suspected of "piracy" you will be found guilty and punished. At the same time, the REAL crooks, the ones running things do what they do best: rape, pillage and burn...

The last official act of any government is to loot the country.

Prices have not gone up. The dollar has gone down. Since the federal reserve has began printing our money, it has lost 98% of its purchasing power..."the great depression" was not a result of the stock market collapsing (duh-it does that all the time), it was a direct result of private banks printing our money in direct violation of our Constitution.

The whole concept seems fantastic...think about it...a group of private bankers is told they are gonna print all the money for the most industrious nation the world has ever seen, with one caveat:   no one will ever audit you...there will never even be a way to look at your books, you can do ANYTHING YOU WANT.

"Pieces of Eight" were Spanish silver dollars, scored in half, quarter and half again (equaling 1/8 of a dollar..."2 bits" equaled a quarter dollar) and they retained ALL their purchasing power from 1497 till 1900..and are of course worth way more than that now.

There is no gas shortage, there is only a paper "money" surplus. [not, of course for you and me!]
