Liberty & Nation Issue 3 – Help Spread The Word!
.
A SCOTTISH supporter of the National Liberal Party has made a generous donation towards the publication of issue 3 of Liberty & Nation. As regular readers will know Liberty & Nation (L&N) is the main voice of the National Liberal Party. It forms an important part in our expanding range of educational and outreach material.

L&N was launched in October 2012 and is designed to circulate all over the British Isles. The first two issues have been pdf copies only – and to get hold of FREE pdf copies of them simply e-mail natliberal@aol.com

However, thanks to this latest donation, issue 3 will be available in both hard copy and pdf formats. As soon as it is produced it will be distributed door-to-door by NLP community activists.

Although details are still to be finalised, it’s anticipated that issue 3 will look at the constitutional crisis which has been provoked across the United Kingdom by the Scottish independence referendum.

Hopefully the NLP will be able to kick off 2015 with the distribution of at least 5000 copies of L&N. This is excellent news. It represents another important step forward for the NLPs strategy of building the infrastructure of an alternative mass media of news, information and entertainment.

However, we’d like do more to promote our ideas which oppose the old gang establishment parties and politicians. Will you help us? Either send a donation to help us print more copies of Liberty & Nation or help our front-line activists distribute this vital publication. Help us promote our message of hope!

Here’s how you can donate:

• Make a direct donation to our bank account: Bank of Scotland – National Liberal Party – 12-11-03 – 06186181

• Pay via our web-site: http://nationalliberal.org/the-party-organisation/donate

Send a cheque or Postal Order to NLP, PO Box 4217, Hornchurch, Essex, RM12 4PX, England.

To volunteer with one of the NLPs community activist teams simply contact natliberal@aol.com

Another Economy Is Possible!

One man makes it very clear what he would do to Bankers. The National Liberal Party believes that the whole banking system has to change.

THE NATIONAL LIBERAL PARTY would like to see a stable, sustainable yet properous economy. We’d like to see our people in apprenticeships or full employment – and not schemes designed to rig the unemployment figures. There should also be a living wage for everyone.

We’d also like to see affordable and decent housing for all. The National Health Service should be regarded as a system of healthcare accesable to everyone – regardless of their economic circumstances. The NHS should be a public service and not for private profit.

In addition, there should be generous provision for disability, maternity leave and retirement. We also believe in free access to public education at all levels – from nursery school to university. Those with special educational needs should also be well catered for.

All of this is great in theory but how will we achieve it? It will require money – and lots of it. However, according to all of the establishment parties and politicians, there’s no money.

Or is there?

Let’s be honest about it, how many members of the establishment parties (or even individual politicians) know how money is created? Indeed, do any of them even care? How many of them have spoken out against the current criminal banking system? They all seem reasonably happy enough to continue surrendering sovereign powers and let the private banks to conjure money out of nothing and then charge interest on it.

However, to ensure real prosperity we need a system that benefits people – as opposed to one that robs them blind. Thus we need a system of Monetary Reform whereby publicly-created, debt-free money is the norm as distinct from privately-created, debt-based money.

An in-depth description of how money is created – and what changes are needed – can be found on the thought-provoking blog My Manifesto – Because Politics Isn’t Working.

For in an article Beyond left and right: Real money is vital for our freedom and prosperity the blog notes:

“We need to get beyond issues of left and right, capitalism versus socialism, in order to acknowledge that at the heart of our malaise is actually the nature of money itself.

Namely, who creates our money and who controls it.

Modern-day banks have been given licence to loan money into existence, without needing a saver with a corresponding deposit on the other side of the ledger. Contrary to popular belief – and the myth that is perpetuated in classrooms across the land – in order to lend £100, banks no longer need someone else to save £100 with them. They simply create the money by typing the numbers into a computer.

This is not only morally outrageous, it has proven to be economically disastrous, causing bubbles in stocks and housing along with huge misallocations of capital away from productive industry and towards non-productive investment in things that already exist, such as houses, from which a rent can be extracted.

For the good of our economy, this legalised form of money forgery has to stop. What is referred to as fractional reserve banking – where a bank lends out more money than it really has – must be brought to an end and full reserve banking must become the norm.

As banks have been allowed to lend at will, governments have been allowed to borrow at will. Again, they are borrowing money that did not exist until it was created out of thin air as a burdensome liability to the taxpayers of future generations.

This is an indirect tax on today’s savers, robbing them of the value of the money they have earned through work in the past and saved to enjoy later on. The interest that is charged to taxpayers on this fraudulently created currency is also a direct tax on the future earnings of workers, and can only serve as a drag on our nation’s economic vibrancy and prosperity until the debt is either repaid or written off.

So the government’s creation of money as debt also must stop, preferably before our currency collapses as the world wakes up to the fact that what we owe as a nation we are unable to repay.

The cure for this abuse of money by banks and governments is to directly link the value of our currency to something that cannot be printed, or created at the touch of a computer button without so much as a bead of sweat falling from a worker’s brow.

Linking the value of our currency to gold and silver, for example, which are limited in supply and have intrinsic value – unlike a piece of paper masquerading as money – would rest power over the creation and control of money from those who have shown themselves to be least capable of exercising it responsibly. Bankers and politicians.

The fact that such reform would negatively affect the power of those two groups of people is, one suspects, exactly why it has not happened. Although as sure as night follows day, reform will be forced upon them both.”

The message is clear then. Another economy is possible. However, in order to provide decent jobs, housing and schools, we first need to take on – and completely reform – the existing banking system.

Christmas 2014 – Support Your Local Shops!

.
YES it’s that time of year again – Christmas is coming! But in your haste to do the shopping, don’t forget the local shops and businesses in your area. Give them an early Christmas present by shopping locally today.

The National Liberal Party knows that times are hard and price considerations are obviously very important, but many small shops depend on their Christmas trade to see them through much of the following year. At present, many shopkeepers are hit hard by the recession which was brought on by ‘casino capitalism’ – a mixture of greed and mistakes made by the politicians, bankers, ‘fat cats’ and speculators. Shopkeepers are also hit hard by high interest rates and the criminal bank debt-system.

The shopkeeper, as a self-employed businessman or woman, plays a vital role in the local economy. (And don’t forget that these small shops collectively employ hundreds of thousands of workers throughout the length and breadth of Britain). Local shops are not only important for the elderly and young mothers, but are part of the glue that helps to maintain community spirit – a place to bump into friends, neighbours and relatives.

If we don’t support our local shops and businesses today, we may loose them forever. Then people will have no other choice to travel directly into the nearest city or town centre for the smallest of items. This may be ok if you have your own transport and are fit and healthy. However, the elderly or young mothers wouldn’t really look forward to beating a path through the massive Saturday shopping crowds found in our large towns and cities.

The message is clear. For the community spirit to survive and prosper, we must give local shops as much trade as possible. The National Liberal Party says support your local shops, shopkeepers and shop workers. Shop locally this Christmas!
