If you are under the age of 46, or if you care about the future of anyone under the age of 46, it’s “hair on fire” alarm time.
Curtis L. Harris’ new book, It’s the Congress, Stupid!, is an admirable comprehensive, yet succinct overview of the real state of the nation, and the reality is, “YOU ARE GETTING SCREWED!”
The course our government leadership has set is demonstrated as being financially ruinous (assuming one believes $2,000,000 in government obligations for a family of four by the year 2019 qualifies as “ruinous”). How and why we got here is the excellence in this quick read, the most important takeaway being: the constitutional notion of minimal governance by citizen-statesmen has devolved into a virtual aristocracy, devoted primarily to self-perpetuating its self-interests, i.e. “IT’S THE CONGRESS, STUPID!”
There are 545 people (President, 9 Supreme Court Justices, 535 in the senate and house) eager to propel you forward toward financial serfdom, to keep you lulled into complacency by entitlements and easy consumerism, the modern day equivalents to the Romans’ bread and circuses populism.
Harris’ answer is Libertarianism, and the latter part of his book is that platform and plan. Whether or not you agree with his banner and call to arms, arm yourself with self-education and a clear understanding of your individual principles compass. What’s at stake is nothing less than your rights to economic and personal liberty, and your right to pursue your unique call to happiness.
Harris’ book is available at www.defeatcongress.org for $8.95 plus S&H.
