    “No US empire without the fed”?

    That’s funny. The only time the US tried an empire was when it grabbed the Philippines from Spain in 1898.

    *inhales from shock* OMG! 1898 was before the Federal Reserve.

      Fred,
      You forgot that the U.S. military real estate, the Pentagon currently owns or rents 702 overseas bases in about 130 countries and territories.

      Afghanistan and Iraq are only the latest acquisitions

      A significant “empire” by anyone’s standard

      The FED is the instrument for paying for that Empire

        Wrong Kemosabe. An Empire:

        A) Has an emperor

        B) Has other sovereign nations under a federal subdivision. The Roman Empire was called an Empire because Gaul was a sovereign nation, foreign to the Romans, and had their own king. Dittos Hyberia, dittos Egypt. An Empire is a collection of different nations and different peoples speaking different languages with totally different cultures. A nation is one culture, one language, one set of law.

        The Philippines is a foreign nation, and fully sovereign when we grabbed it from Spain. Their citizens had no intention of becoming American; they spoke a different language, had a different culture, and had different laws. Therefore that was the only time in US history we tried an empire, even without meeting requisite A (no emperor).

        US bases all over the world isn’t an empire.

        You guys, like Liberals, throw around “empire” around too much. Like the word “racist”, it means nothing.

        Actually, if the CONGRESS and the PRESIDENT approve of a budget, TREASURY issues debt to fund the obligations and a PRIVATE COMPANY (or FOREIGN NATION) purchases our debt with cash…

        Is it really the Fed that ‘funded’ the empire you speak of? YES! THE FED IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF EVERYTHING EVILLLLLLLLLL!

        That’s like a father taking $20 out of the mother’s purse because he didn’t have cash, giving it to their 16 year old, of which the child bought 4 40′s and wrecked the car into a tree.

        Who’s fault is that? ABSOLUTELY THE MOTHER’S FAULT!!!!

        God, your simplistic and view of the world is laughable at best and laudable at normal.
