Give big government a big shot in the arm | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Democrats will never allow a border wall for one reason: Social Security. Illegal immigrants, far from straining social services, in fact are its linchpin.

Back in the early ’70s, Edward Renshaw noted how illegals give big government a shot in the arm of $2.8 billion in benefits paid but never claimed. Social Security, billed as an insurance policy, is now a tax, hijacked by Reagan/Greenspan in 1983. Young people deserve a fighting chance, cutting loose the deadbeat baby boomer generation.

Our nation is a captured operation, falling back into the orbit of the British empire after our Civil War, consolidated into colonial status with the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Great Britain is a relic, its bright future to be relegated to the great scrap heap of world history, their geezer Queen sent packing.

How come Democrats always sing the praises of big government, but never take the basic step of nationalizing the bank? The dollar is on the last leg of its lifespan, its status as the worlds’ reserve currency up in smoke like a child sacrifice in the bohemian grove.

Head’s up people: Governments can print money as easily as banks, and interest free!
