An audience of 375 from 27 States for the Friday afternoon and evening were treated to a message from featured speaker, Dr. Ron Paul. He is the most outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve System under which we all live, thanks to a monopoly granted in December 1913. His book, End the Fed written in 2009 is widely read by many people who know the fallacies of central banks all over the world. Central banks have created the worst financial condition that has ever existed and Dr. Paul is the champion of exposing this fact.

BankNotes – August 2013

Don’t think of problems as difficulties, think of them as opportunities for action. Hard as they are, they may turn out to be blessings in disguise. – C. F. Kleinknecht
Is it not true that most people look upon their problems only as difficulties? Even worse, they regard their problems as dreaded invasions of the serene life. Why this perverse view? Problems should be likened to birth pains; the good life has its genesis in them and their “painful “ overcoming. Let’s see if we can make the case for joyfully overcoming them.

BankNotes – July 2013

“During the weeks following the [1860] election, [Northern newspaper] editors of all parties assumed that secession as a constitutional right was not in question . . . . On the contrary, the southern claim to a right of peaceable withdrawal was countenanced out of reverence for the natural law principle of government by consent of the governed.” ~ Howard Cecil Perkins, editor, Northern Editorials on Secession, p. 10

BankNotes – June 2013

I believe that it is imperative that the public recognize the devastating consequences of Keynesian thinking that has dominated the economic world since the early twentieth century. Not to mention the monetarist thinking of Milton Friedman that has compounded the problem. Also understand that this thinking cannot continue indefinitely into the future. I believe that it is evident that history has demonstrated this truth. Unless the problem is understood there is not much chance of a solution.

BankNotes – April 2013

In both the Lara-Murphy Report and our book, How Privatized Banking Really Works, Carlos and I explain the benefits of Nelson Nash’s Infinite Banking Concept (IBC), which involves the disciplined use of dividend-paying life insurance policies. Since Nash himself couches the discussion in terms of whole life policies, we naturally did the same.

BankNotes – March 2013

“This used to be a hell of a good country, I can’t understand what’s gone wrong with it.” said George Hanson in the movie “Easy Rider.” My old friend Joe Sobran (1946-2010) loved that line and quoted it often. Sobran, who worked alongside William Buckley at National Review during its heyday, was one of the smartest people I’ve ever known. After a lifetime of thinking about politics, he eventually decided that there was only one way out of our troubles: the whole of the government has to go.

BankNotes – February 2013

A mentor of mine, Clarence Carson, published a book in the 70s titled, The War on the Poor. He took his title from Lyndon Johnson’s so called “war on poverty.” Carson noted that actual wars are waged against actual people rather than against circumstances. Thus, if the government were engaged in a war it must be against some identifiable group of people. In his book he identified the poor as that group by analyzing the economic impact of the various policies that Johnson pursued. In each new initiative of the Great Society the effect of those policies was to raise prices on various products and cause the poor in America to suffer for the sake of a few special interests.

BankNotes – January 2013

I hope you had a joyous holiday season and that you are looking forward to “pushing back the frontiers of ignorance” in the new year. There is a tremendous task in front of us. The world needs to know the message of Infinite Banking Concepts. Demonstrating how individuals can free themselves from financial slavery is a very rewarding experience, both spiritually and financially.
