Government is ‘owned by bankers’

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within.

An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. So said Marcus Cicero, to the Roman Senate (42 BC).

This is where we are as a nation. We are being attacked from within, by ‘our Government’, but that is not quite accurate: this is not our Government, neither was the last. The Government is owned by the bankers, not so much the greedy local high-level bank managers, but by the legalised gangsters in the ECB, IMF and Rothschild banking dynasty.

Our country is rotting from within; the buffer to this is (partly) the people who have woken up to the scam and are refusing to pay more tax. In reality, tax is legalised theft that is used these days to pay off non-existent debt, rather than provide good healthcare and education.

All we hear now is pay more and get less. The worst aspect of this is that it is the Government that is facilitating this situation of legalised theft. We must stop helping the Government to steal from us and ship our hard earned wealth to corrupt, evil, filthy rich bankers.
