The Wicked, Diabolical Paradigm of "Money Laundering"

State-worshipping, Big Government-loving, and pro-Eliot Spitzer thug Philip Weiss is dumbfounded and infuriated at the prospect that spending your hard-earned money (which happens to be your private property) -- money that is honestly earned yet dishonestly stolen (in the form of taxation) -- can land you in a federal slammer because of an arbitrary federal felony charge. What he fails to fathom is the fact that spending $10,000 or more of your own financial property (money) without filing a government form that enables them to have unfettered access and control of your cash is a federal "government-constructed" crime.

It should be of no surprise to anyone that spending smaller amounts of your money is a prosecutable offense as well -- that is, if the amounts add up to more than $10,000. Of course, the god whom we call the state tells us that this vile, diabolical draconian, police-state measure is necessary to fight the War on Terror. Of course, similarly the late former President Ronald Reagan was the one who pushed for the creation of these draconian laws in the 1980s by masking them in the form of a lame excuse to combat the War on Drugs. But neither was true then, and it is the same now.

This is a statist effort to monitor and control every dime and penny you spend via the coercive power of taxation. Thankfully we have Ron Paul who fought for our privacy and property rights then and fights for them once again now.

After all, he fought Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, and now Bush II by opposing their statist efforts to create the victimless crime we call "money laundering." Ron means what he says on the need for government in constitutional chains and the expansion of human liberty, not the other way around.
