How Values Have Changed

1964-D Washington Quarter Value - Coin HELP

I ate lunch today at a Chinese Buffet and received 50 cents back in change when I paid the bill. The owner was handling the two quarters and said that something was not right about one of them. He dropped it and said it did not sound right. I asked to look at them and at first thought he meant the Iowa quarter from 2017. I said that it was a legal quarter and took them both.

As soon as I looked down, I saw that he meant the other quarter which was a 1964 silver quarter. The proprietor thought the quarter was counterfeit when in fact, it was actually the real money. The current value of a 1964 silver quarter starts at $4.37. People have been conditioned to accept fiat currency as real money. Real money is not recognized as such by most people today after 57 years of government debasement.

As I was thinking about this further, an analogy came to me. People today have a different concept of Liberty than those of our founding fathers. The Constitution that they sacrificed so much to give us is now considered to be counterfeit by our current fraudulent government. The tragedy is that people do not understand the value of Liberty: their concept is a bastardized version of true Liberty.

When people do not understand the value of money after 57 years, imagine their value of Liberty after 233 years.

Here is Joe Biden’s version of Liberty:

I need you to get vaccinated when it’s your turn and when you can find an opportunity and to help your family, your friends, your neighbors get vaccinated as well. Because here’s the point. If we do all this, if we do our part, we do this together, by July the 4th, there’s a good chance you, your families and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout and a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day.

I remember and understand the true value of Liberty and its cost.

Fantastic perspective! And you are right, people don’t value liberty. We have all this “safety” in CCTV everywhere we look so we can “see what nefarious acts are being committed”. That is bullshit. It is in the name of “surveillance “, which is also the number one way they keep pushing their communism upon us. Don’t think for a second it is not there to keep Patriots from doing what needs done in order to circumvent their plans. Now, if only we had someone on the inside to help us by pulling “an Epstein” and cutting the feed when a few of us want to pay em some lead for the shit they have done. We have only helped them destroy our on liberties.

We traveled to Florida for my mother in law’s surgery. Was surprised at the amount of cameras and such on the highways here. I do not feel comfortable. Welcome to the Machine kept running through my mind.

Yes sir! This will be EVERYWHERE in coming years. You’re absolutely correct though, we have a camera at almost every intersection and stop light… Tower’s popping up quickly all Over here too. I just ordered my Trifield meter to read the radiation off of phones, TV, routers, microwave and any other “smart/lazy” device thing.
I am eager to get it in mail so I can see how badly these radiation levels are at around my family. I will share my findings once it comes.
I spent the extra$ and ordered straight from Trifield, just to avoid Amazon and the world domination machine they have become.
Laziness and GREED is killing everything that was great about this Country

As far as getting the vaccine, the only reason that I got vaccine was to shut my son and daughter in law up ( they both work in the health industry ). Maybe if I hadn’t gotten the vaccine, then maybe I might have been able to be with my wife of 48 yrs, she passed away 4 yrs ago of cancer.

Your President may easily become king. Your Senate is so imperfectly constructed that your dearest rights may be sacrificed by what may be a small minority; and a very small minority may continue forever unchangeably this government, although horridly defective. Where are your checks in this government? Your strongholds will be in the hands of your enemies. It is on a supposition that your American governors shall be honest, that all the good qualities of this government are founded; but its defective and imperfect construction puts it in their power to perpetrate the worst of mischiefs, should they be bad men; and, sir, would not all the world, from the eastern to the western hemisphere, blame our distracted folly in resting our rights upon the contingency of our rulers being good or bad? Show me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men, without a consequent loss of liberty! I say that the loss of that dearest privilege has ever followed, with absolute certainty, every such mad attempt.
