Anne Barnhardt calls for EPIC ECONMIC CRASH LIKELY IN LESS THAN 12 MONTHS:
“…Have you people never read the Bible? Why don’t you crack open the Bible and start reading?…”

Ann Barnhardt says states should secede from the U.S.A. such as an Oklahoma/Texas scenario and I believe she is probably going to see this happen should the epic crisis happen according to her projections. I’m posting this again because I believe it’s important.
Supreme Errors by Peter Schiff (“The Evil Republicans Will Never Repeal O-Care They love power and pelf, too. Article by Peter Schiff.”)
In the wake of my last commentary on the horrendous Supreme Court decision upholding Obama’s health care plan, several people have pointed out that I erred in saying that the income tax is a “direct tax.” While it is technically correct that the Court ultimately declared it to be an excise, not a direct tax, it is important to understand how it arrived at that opinion and why the decision has no practical relevance to the way the tax has been enforced.
Just as it has done with Obamacare, the Court came up with a technically constitutional pathway to allow the government to collect a tax in a blatantly unconstitutional manner.
I’ve not posted since the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the insurance mandate of Obamacare, and am leaving much of the back-and-forth to other writers. Peter Schiff writes that if the government really does have the authority to levy a “tax” upon any citizen who does not purchase what the government demands they buy, then there really are no more checks on the power of government.
The Supreme Court decision is devastating for the economy and individual liberty. Apart from creating an all powerful federal government, changing substantially what it means to be an American, the law will send health care costs soaring, further undermining our economy.
It will destroy jobs, impoverish millions, and lead to much higher inflation and lower living standards.
…..The Libertarian Party wasted little time excoriating Paul: “No true libertarian, no true friend of liberty, and no true blue Tea Partier could possibly even consider, much less actually endorse or approve of, the Father of Obamacare, Big Government tax and spender, Republican Mitt Romney,” a statement exclaimed.

Many of the books and audiobooks, in addition to all of the articles, that appear on the list below are available to read or listen to online.
An Introduction to Economic ReasoningThese books, all relatively short and available online or for purchase, are an excellent starting point for an education in sound economics.
The past several years have seen a revival of interest in the Austrian School of economics. (For some background on the Austrian School, read this essay and this essay.)

The Daily Bell – Thomas Woods, Jr. on Libertarianism Versus the Catholic Church, Ron Paul’s Presidential Chances and US State Secession
…..Daily Bell: Could some states begin to take a real look at secession, state sovereignty and Tenth Amendment actions if the economy continues to worsen?
Thomas E. Woods, Jr.: Ron Paul has been saying we should expect de facto nullification when the real crisis comes and the federal government has trouble paying its bills. It will be harder for it to intimidate the states into doing its bidding. At that point, they may garner the courage to take a real and long-overdue stand against Washington.
Filling in for Peter Schiff on his radio show not long ago, I asked Pat Buchanan how likely he thought it was, on a scale of one to ten, that secession might be seriously entertained sometime over the course of the next several generations, given the scope of the problems the country is sure to face. He said 8 or 9. But he was thinking in terms of the American Southwest, which will increasingly be culturally Mexican, so that’s a different scenario from the one you’re describing.
Students of recent world history would be advised not to rule out a possible outcome just because it seems unlikely or “out of the mainstream” (ooh, beware!) today.
Daily Bell: What’s your latest book and when is it scheduled to come out?
Thomas E. Woods, Jr.: That’s it for books from me for a while. I’ve written five books (and edited a book of essays) in the past five years: 33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask, Who Killed the Constitution? (with Kevin Gutzman), Meltdown (on the financial crisis; foreword by Ron Paul), Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century (see my Interview with a Zombie promo video), Back on the Road to Serfdom and, most recently, Rollback.
Rollback makes a pretty relentless case against just about everything the federal government does, from the regulatory apparatus to the military-industrial complex, the war on drugs, economic “stimulus,” the Federal Reserve, and on and on. It could have been called “Everything Should Be Abolished, And Here’s Why.”…..
Second, in our private lives, we all discriminate against people. It may be against ugly people, dumb people, people we don’t know very long, people that have bad breath, obnoxious people, rude people, interventionists, Keynesians etc.
In a world of non-discrimination, you would just show up at a restaurant and be seated with the person that came in just before you. Hey, everybody is equal, right?
