Make Switzerland Neutral Again

The Liberty Block - Sun, 2023-03-19 04:09 +0000

The most important thing to do now is to continue to support the principles of neutrality, particularly in Switzerland. Support the protestors that are demanding for a return to the Swiss neutrality of the past and all others that are bringing light to the fact that this is sadly occurring. I do not plan on returning to Switzerland until it returns to its former glory. Let’s Make Switzerland Neutral Again!

Goldback Store Opens in Manchester!

Free Keene - Sat, 2023-03-18 21:33 +0000

A couple of years ago, the New Hampshire Goldback was created after the original Utah Goldback proved incredibly popular at the 2020 Porcfest. A gorgeous, spendable, interchangeable type of gold money available in denominations as small 1/1000th of an ounce of 24 karat gold, the NH Goldback has taken the NH freedom community by storm – giving even cryptocurrency serious competition.

Now, the company behind the Goldback, Alpine Gold, has launched its first physical branch location and they chose Manchester, NH!

I decided I needed to see it for myself, so I set an appointment with Adam Van, the manager, and got him to answer all my questions about the services they provide the community, and the entire eastern portion of the United States. It’s pretty cool – watch the interview here:

Give them a call at (801) 770-2565 x1201 and stop in to see for yourself.

97 State Reps Vote to End DMT Prohibition!

Free Keene - Mon, 2023-03-13 13:24 +0000

A few weeks ago, 70 state reps voted to end drug prohibition entirely and last week, 90 state reps voted to end prohibition on dimethyltryptamine (DMT)! Here’s the full video from the house floor featuring reps Jason Gerhard, Matt Santonastaso, and Jonah Wheeler speaking in favor of the bill, HB 216, which sadly lost 274-97. However, 26% is a good first try.

Clearly, younger state reps understand the urgency of ending the insane war on drugs and as the older prohibitionist reps die off and are replaced by free staters as our number and influence increases, we will be ever closer to ending the madness of drug prohibition in our lifetime.

Regulating the Value of Money and the 1834 Coinage Act

The Liberty Block - Thu, 2023-03-09 02:55 +0000

The 1834 Coinage Act is a very important Act to understand, because the Supreme Court later misattributed false monetary theories against it, to deviously uphold legal tender paper currency, ultimately depriving Americans of both gold and silver coin.
