The government and the clueless pundits on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox won't explain to you why the dollar is now worth only four cents. In fact, they don't even want you to know that.

This great article explains a lot of what the government did to us. Thanks to the Mises Institute for another great article on economics.
In a civilized society, should anyone or any government ever force anyone to do anything against his or her will as long as that person does not infringe upon the life, liberty, or property of another?
