Dear Concerned American,
If you think everything in America is just fine…
And the people “behind the curtain” of our financial system care about you and your money…
This might not be for you.
But if instead you feel like we do – like you’re never really getting the full story from the mainstream media…
And we did something about it.
We believe when it comes to your retirement… your money… and your financial safety in the coming years…
You deserve better.
That’s why we started American Consequences – a new, online magazine about what’s really happening in American finance… and what’s about to happen next.
The first thing you should know is that American Consequences is 100% free.
There’s no subscription fee… no “paywall”… nothing.
Simply sign up below and get it delivered to your inbox each month.
This month, we look to government... that monster of power and expense – with tentacles that threaten to strangle us all.
Editor in chief P.J. O'Rourke (see below) updates the introduction to his 1991 book, Parliament of Whores... As he says, it "has stood the test of time unfortunately well."
Then we introduce the idea of a national lottery that millions will cheer, but will result in a national nightmare.
If you've never heard the term "jubilee" before, you must read this essay.
Then, we move on to...
What happens after the feds break down your door (from someone who knows)... why government bonds offer "return-free risk"... and whether character matters in politics, by a former presidential speechwriter.
Then we investigate Kamala Harris, the current frontrunner of 2020 Democrat presidential nominees and widely thought of as a potential savior for the party. Is she owned by Silicon Valley?
Plus, do you know one of the scariest phrases in America? And we investigate the epidemic of taxpayer funding for NFL stadiums... maybe ESPN should focus on this instead of refusing to air the national anthem.
Then we're on the ground with the "antifa"... in three essays that are like nothing else mainstream media are talking about.
Finally, we investigate how some politically correct folks might want to "fix history" with a wrecking ball... look at some government reforms and deforms that might help (or hurt)... and end with a conversation with a former Fed analyst that is eye opening.
If you've ever wondered about the real value of government – this issue is for you.
