With the looming financial crisis and national and state debt. With the threats from the national government and ultimatum of do this or do not receive our money. One must wonder what can be done, without simply complaining about the problem. If we look at the State of North Dakota. They have seen financial security, and a sustainable GDP for about the last one hundred years. As of recently they are ranked 16th in per capital income at $50,899. Their gross domestic product was 36 billion in 2013, and their GDP growth rate is at an average of 8%. Now let’s look at Utah. In 2005 we
had an average per capital income of $36,000. 82 billion GDP which is about 1% of the nation. So why do the citizens make far less than what our GDP is per year? The reason being is that we are truly addicted to the
federal money which always brings higher taxes and higher federal tyranny. We also pay more to the feds per year as well. So what is the solution, how can we fix this mess? Be more honest and fair with our citizens? How can we say no to the federal monies with strings attached? How can we keep more of what we earn? How can we lower taxes and fees, and still lower our debts here at home and at the national level? How can we fully practice the principle of Nullification? The solution is banking. Not the traditional form after the Federal Reserve banking system, but after the order of the old savings and loan sort of way. Where people may establish their own banks, their own regulations, and their own help meet for their customers, and eventually their own currency. Remember that this Great State of Utah is supposed to be a sovereign nation with equal footing with the national government and our neighboring States under the US Constitution. Below is the piece of legislation that will prepare the way for our future financial safety, and security.
