Open Letter to My MP: Freedom is our nationality, and it’s not for sale

Given the recent events in Canada, I am emailing my MP with the following letter, and opening it up for anyone that would like to use it or part of it to email their own MP.


Hello Gary,

I am concerned about recent events causing hysteria and fostering bad ideas like “preventative measures” to detain people suspected of possibly doing something at some untold time in the future. I am equally concerned about the expanding security/surveillance state.

Our liberty is not on the negotiating table. Patrick Henry had a few good words to say about that. But we can look closer to home for thoughts on the topic.

Nothing will prevent me from continuing my task of PRESERVING AT ALL COST OUR CIVIL LIBERTY. – Wilfrid Laurier

Wilfrid Laurier phrased that using “at all cost” and not “at a ‘reasonable’ cost”. I believe that he was more than intelligent enough to know the difference, and that he was quite deliberate in that.

As long as there is a drop of blood in my body THEY WON’T STOP ME FROM TALKING ABOUT FREEDOM. – John Diefenbaker

Freedom and liberty do not take sides. Both Liberals (Wilfrid Laurier) and Progressive Conservatives (John Diefenbaker) have spoken out fiercely in defense of freedom in Canada.

We do not want Canada to dive into the same downward spiral that other “western democracies” have.

  • The United States of America has eviscerated its Constitution and Bill of Rights. Do we want to imitate them and watch things go south?
  • In the UK, David Cameron is trying to make thoughts he doesn’t agree with a crime, and has openly suggested re-education camps. Is going down that road one that will make Canadians happy campers?
  • Australia has criminalised journalism and free speech. Does Canada want to go down under with Australia?

I think the answer to these questions is clear. No. And a resounding NO. Why? Because…

Canada is free and FREEDOM IS ITS NATIONALITY. – Wilfrid Laurier

While ignoring people’s fundamental freedoms, liberties, and Natural Rights certainly makes many tasks much easier, that isn’t what Canada is about.

Certainly there are difficulties in not violating people’s freedoms, liberties, or Natural Rights, but simply because a job is difficult is no reason to strip people of those liberties. It is the job of government to protect and defend our liberty “at all cost”. Our liberty is not a bargaining chip; that a job is difficult is no reason to ask us to sacrifice even the tiniest amount of liberty.

If I may return to John Diefenbaker:

A Canada, united from Coast to Coast, wherein there will be freedom for the individual, freedom of enterprise and where there will be a Government which, in all its actions, will remain the servant and not the master of the people.

However difficult the job of the intelligence service, and however difficult the job of elected (or unelected) officials, that difficulty is no excuse to even think about asking Canadians to sacrifice any of their freedoms. It is our nationality. And it’s not for sale.

I do hope that you will consider the above, and take it with you as you perform your duties as a Minister to Parliament in Ottawa.

Respectfully,

Ryan Smyth

Information is now officially illegal in the United Police States of America.

Cody Wilson’s 3D printed guns and gun parts have been shut down. Well, kind of. Truth is, the cat is out of the bag.

You can get a torrent of it here:

Now is the time to download it. Pump up the download and seeding stats to show the corrupt politicians that freedom of speech is out of their control. They have failed to muzzle the beast of freedom.

Patrick Henry said:

Give me freedom, or give me death.

This is entirely about freedom. Stand up. Do what you can. Make your voice heard before you are silenced. This is not about guns. This is about freedom and free speech.

Frackin’ Reserve is now available for Android!

In an effort to try and help educate people about the inevitable mathematical fraud of fractional reserve banking, I’ve released an Android version. It’s 100% free. Pass it around, and let’s END THE FED!

Frackin’ Reserve lets you simulate what happens in the money cycle with fractional reserve banking. It demonstrates how banksters print money out of thin air and how that money very quickly mushrooms into massive quantities of debt.

Make sure to check the articles listed below as they fully explain the fraudulent nature of fractional reserve banking.

“Once a nation parts with the control of its credit, it matters not who makes the laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talks of the sovereignty of Parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.” — William Lyon MacKenzie King

GET FRACKIN’ RESERVE FOR ANDROID

You can find Frackin’ Reserve for Android in the Google Play store here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.renegademinds.frackinreserve

GET THE SOURCE CODE

As with all other versions, I’ve made the full source code is available for free. There are notes in there to help you compile it as it requires some very minor tweaks to compile (you must have a strong name file).

DOWNLOAD: Frackin Reserve Android source code

However, in a massive departure from my norm, I did put Google ads in the version that you download from the Google Play store. (I pretty much never put any kind of advertising in my free software, and am generally not very fond of ads in my own software or web sites.) It takes a lot of time and effort, and I figure that if I want to keep up with some of this activism, I need to try and make some money from it in order to off-set the costs of me spending my time elsewhere trying to make a living. I do hope that people appreciate that I’m not trying to get rich or anything – just trying to pay bills. While I thoroughly enjoy this, it takes away from development time for other things that I need to put food on the table. (If you would like to help support Frackin’ Reserve, please consider having a look at my commercial audio software to help musicians learn new songs – Guitar & Drum Trainer.)

FRACKIN’ RESERVE FOR ANDROID SCREENSHOTS

Please remember to rate Frackin’ Reserve and pass it on to friends and family. When enough people discover just how evil fractional reserve banking is, together we can END THE FED and end the control of the money supply by private banksters.

Cheers,

Ryan

This series of articles on fractional reserve banking started with an introduction to the mechanics of fractional reserve banking. The important points were:

  • The simple nature of the mathematics and the factors involved
  • The iterative nature of the process as a continuing cycle
  • The process has mathematical limits, except in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Sweden
  • The limits are drastically affected by the reserve requirement

We then looked at one perspective on the difference between money and wealth, and defined money as an instrument to facilitate trade and commerce.

Part 3 accelerated by explaining the exact mechanism by which fractional reserve banking works, and exposed it for the fraud that it is. It illustrated that by taking advantage of float time, in the same way as check kiting, fractional reserve banking is a temporal pyramid scheme.

Getting Around Internet Censorship: Internet Freedom

There is no better way to set me off into a mindless fury of profanity and obscenity than to censor me. I loathe censorship. It sets me off. So, here’s how to get around censorship in repressive police states like Belgium…

The Belgian Anti-Piracy Federation (BAF) has urged all Belgian ISPs to block Swedish freetard site The Pirate Bay after a higher Antwerp court ordered Belgian cable company Telenet and telco Belgacom to make the site inaccessible to their subscribers. (Source)

It is not the job of a supposedly free government to ban or block access to information. That is the job of the police state. The subject matter does not matter. Whether it’s about how to knit patterned sweaters, or how to build and deploy improvised explosive devices (IEDs), blocking access is blocking access. Censorship is censorship.

I previously posted about getting around censorship where I mentioned iPredator. I’d also posted this graphic: iPredator That still holds true. You can also use Privacy.io. One benefit to Privacy.io is that you can still send email via port 25, which is blocked with iPredator. Other than that, iPredator and Privacy.io are about the same. I should note that I have tried both, and have found that Privacy.io seems to be faster than iPredator. I could be wrong, but that’s what I’ve perceived anyways.

So, the difference between iPredator and Privacy.io is pretty much nothing as far as censorship goes. Only the name changes. Here’s that same diagram from above adjusted for Privacy.io:

Privacy.io and censorship

But I’d like to add one thing to the above method for getting around Internet Censorship though: DNS servers. Here’s an illustration of how you could still encounter problems if your ISP filters some sites via DNS filtering, and how you can solve that problem for a complete solution:

Privacy.io and DNS Server Solution to Censorship

So, you can also change your DNS servers to something else other than your ISP’s DNS servers. By doing this, and using a VPN, they won’t have the faintest clue what you are doing. You can surf the web freely and anonymously.

Some DNS services include Google’s free DNS resolution services or any other DNS service. Keep in mind though, that whoever is doing your DNS resolution knows what sites you are requesting DNS resolution for… So you might want to investigate that further, and look for a DNS resolution service that has a solid privacy policy and one that doesn’t keep logs.

Here’s how DNS filtering works…

You want to visit a site, like the Pirate Bay. But “thepiratebay.org” doesn’t mean anything to your computer. Only special numbers work. Those numbers are called “IP addresses”. DNS servers match human-friendly names, like “thepiratebay.org” to those numbers, IP addresses. When your computer sends a request to your ISP’s DNS servers, your ISP can look at your request and say, “Oh… he wants to visit a site that we don’t want him to… Let’s give him a fake DNS record (IP address) or nothing at all for that site so that he can’t visit it.”

So there you have it. How to get around censorship on the Internet.

And if your ISP blocks you before you can even make a connection to iPredator or Privacy.io, there are more VPN services out there that you can connect to. They can’t block them all.

Cheers, and happy FREEDOM surfing!

Ryan
