Have you ever heard of a CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report)? Watch the above film and start your education as to what governments are up to in the United States. You should be shocked.
Alex Jones also released a great CAFR movie a few years ago that is a little easier to follow,
perhaps this is the best one to watch first.
In short this whole topic exposes the fact that governments have enough invested money that they do not have to collect taxes off of the citizens to pay the bills. They hide this fact by keeping a double set of books. Yes I know it sounds too far fetched to be true but so are many things that governments do. (This may not currently be true as most have lost much of this money due to poor investments in banker scams such as derivatives.)
