IN AN ONLINE STAMPEDE

87% OF AMERICANS ARE CONNECTED ONLINE. LET’S USE THAT HORSEPOWER TO RESTORE EVERYONE’S AMERICAN DREAM IN AN ONLINE STAMPEDE AT RTDNOW.COM  

Just when the whole economy is going to PERMANENTLY collapse as we lose 40 million more jobs over the next 20 years to advanced technologies, and the American dream will be TOTALLY dead for every single American, and 50 years of failed politicians’ runaway government kept adding debt to sink America even faster, you finally have your awakening and realize, ‘OMG! NOBODY’S COMING TO SAVE 300 MILLION OF US ORDINARY CITIZENS, BUT US’

 

But just as all hope in America is lost, an unthinkable, ironic, ‘miracle twist’, happens. The same technology killing all American Dreams can be repurposed to become the solution, to quickly restore everyone’s American dream. But there’s a catch: it takes everyone to participate in an online stampede. That’s why I’m asking every single American to help daily telling everyone: Add Your Name! REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM.

That Slow Moving Buffalo is YOU!

The American worker is about to be extinct, RUN OVER, on your way to work by Faster Than Light technologies. THE AUTONOMOUS REVOLUTION will kill American life FAST over 20 years if we just keep our heads down. 300 MILLION AS 1: REDEEM THE DREAM NOW!!! 

ANOTHER QUATRAIN   

Provides True INSPIRATION  

 

That’s how my song, Dreaming of Us, on this album, started too, with a Quatrain of four lines. But I rolled in and told my producer, Tim Ellis, “Online Stampede needs to be a full song.” He said fine, “What are you thinking?” How about we do repetition so EVERYONE really gets the message, that we are all going to use those shiny cell phones in our hands 5 FULL hours a day, for 5 minutes a day, to restore all our American dreams quickly. He stares waiting for elaboration. I said we need to repeat the quatrain and build it, and I’m going to tell everyone in spoken word exactly what we’re all getting, why we’re ALL doing this, so everyone in America will participate. He nodded. But I said there’s one more thing: we need a choir. When a bald person raises his eyebrows his whole forehead is involved. His face said, “Really?” Then he said, “Fine, find a choir”.

FINDING A CHOIR  

 

I wanted the youth voice of America to be loudly heard. So all the youth of America would know the RTDNOW PLAN saves their future and they had to participate so they could save their own American dream. Heidi, my girlfriend, spent two years before I knew her, just trying to make me smile by saying hello as I came into the health club where she worked. My headphones were always in listening to the all the songs I was making, and I would just stare and walk past. She had no idea I was wrapping up an ugly divorce, because while I was working on this opera, and had a day job, I wasn’t really very chatty like I normally am.

 

But once we finally got to be friends she became a big help. I told her right up front, “I’m making a rock opera to save the American dream.” She smiled and said, “Cool.” It turns out she had been in a relationship long ago with another musician with the same first name, also born on the same day. Now what are the chances of that? Well, the rest is history so they say. Heidi had attended the same high school as my kids, in, Oregon. But way back when, with Tommy Thayer, who became lead guitarist for the rock band Kiss. Small world huh?

 

She told me she had the perfect choir. Hmm. Seems like the Sunset High School Choir. I went to see their current musical, Addams Family, three nights in a row. They were fabulous. She connected me, and I donated money to the music department, and their participation became a field study event to sing in a real music-recording studio: Kung Fu Bakery Music Studio. They did a super job, as you will hear on this song. At the time, the website had not been developed. Just the concept of getting every single American involved, everyone, using music, the rock opera, to restore everyone’s American dream in a modern equality movement. Yes, overnight, in an online stampede.

Brian Dunning on flute and Tim Ellis on guitar. 10 Years making the opera was like being backstage with GREAT musicians! I had fun.

The Real Story of the American Dream In Context

of Adrian's Song “In An Online Stampede"

A Visual Representation Of the Cycle of the American Citizens getting FLEECED Annually, and EVERY DECADE in a contrived recession, is below. And we'll see HOW all us 300 Million citizens, the wealth class calls ‘Sheeple’, put a stop to it, OVERNIGHT, in an Online Stampede at RTDNOW.COM 

Note: All 60 Million American Buffalo were systematically fleeced and wiped out over 50 years. One reason was to decimate the Native People who lived off Buffalo. Since there's no Buffalo, and most real sheep went offshore, I use Alpacas below, who have better fur, visually, to describe how we keep getting fleeced 300 million as 1. It's WHY I'm asking for all citizens to participate in by adding their names at RTDNOW.COM to restore everyone’s Complete American Dream.

Today we time travel to every 5-10 years (Yep), about 50 (?!?), Economic Recessions that keep happening like bad dreams.

The we’ll time travel to the near RTDNOW future to see how (after 100 Million to 300 Million add their names at RTDNOW.COM in an Online Stampede) The RTDNOW Plan tames our contrived and consistent wealth class boom bust cycle that keeps stealing all our American dreams.​

1. Trapped in a closed economic and social system by birth, right before annual fleecing we get segmented by color. 

2. All the Sheeple realize at once, as each color is penned up,  there is nothing they can do about it now, and they are about to get fleeced again, and nobody can escape.

3. Concern and conversation ensues within the group too late to organize: there are no knee jerk solutions available and no on the spot leaders. A few try to bolt but are caught by a policing force.

4. The Fleecing! Held down by the few, in their organized single party wealth class economic system, by forces beyond any single Sheeple’s control, or any group of Sheeple’s control, they each are held down and submit, and pay their annual tax: all their excess fur. Everything they made during the last year they didn’t consume, is TAKEN! Kinda like taxes these days.

5. The fleeced Sheeple is quickly thrown back into the heard: bewildered, speechless, stripped bare and cold, trying to get their bearings.

6. The fleeced recovers after a short while and tries in vain to warn others who just can’t believe they are about to lose all their possessions, everything they built, overnight. Even as they are watching all their friends and relatives get fleeced one by one right before their eyes. They just keep saying and insisting that the sheerers need me and like me and, “It won’t happen to me!”

7. Finally all fleeced, they all now look and feel alike again: totally fleeced. And they gain some comfort and feel good that they all fit in again. Unable to all organize, cold and hungry, they all focus on subsistence again, eating and shelter. Burying the pain and suffering of what just happened, they repress the thoughts, focus on fantasy, and try to forget and just move on. 

And that’s how the process surprisingly repeats each year with annual taxes (and in our case, on a non discriminatory basis each decade with a contrived bubble driven recession) like clockwork just as all the Sheeple (300 Million Of is Citizens) start to feel good again about having grown a full coat to show off and to call our own. Right before they take it again. That’s why America was formed in 1776: TO STOP THE FLEECING!!!

 

This is the story in allegory, of how the American middle class (100,000,000 citizens and shrinking rapidly in America, from about 1/3 to 1/4 of all citizens) being thinned by our global elite wealth class every year and every decade in a consistent pattern. 

 

But then something changed. The wealth class took 3/4 of the factories offshore over 5 decades starting in 1971 (because there is less fleece here to sheer because the economy is gone less fleece grows each year per Sheeple, they sheered us all to the bone, 100 Million are poor in America today), to sheer other Sheeple all around the world. 

 

That’s what $26 Trillion in national debt really represents: all our fleeces and way beyond what we had to fleece! They put us in an endless cycle of debt enslavement. 

 

They fleeced all of us, 300 Million, AS A COMBINED GROUP! Pretty slick actually. They combine us ALL as an organized group to fleece us all together, passing on unauthorized taxes called national debt currently at about $70,000 per citizen, and the inflation now at 65% which makes all our money worth-less. Then they use corporate owned media (which began in 1980’s as President Reagan repealed the Fairness in Broadcasting act, so he could unleash it!) propaganda to constantly divide and distract us, so we can’t organize to stop our continued uncontrolled fleecing, which we all causally today call, runaway government. 

 

300 Million As 1, it’s time for all us Sheeple (that what they call all U.S. citizens who are too numbed out to organize to save ourselves) to put a stop to the fleecing of every citizens. If you want to stop being fleeced 300 Million As 1 over and over again. If you want to restore your fleece permanently, and your American dream permanently, what grows your fleece, and everyone else’s  at the same time. It’s simple.

 

Just keep telling everyone to add their names and REDEEM THE DREAM @ RTDNOW.COM and using all our cell phones and social media Daily, we will all save America from total economic and social collapse and restore everyone’s Complete American Dream in an Online Stampede.

SEE FOR YOURSELF!

 

A LIST OF ENDLESS RECESSIONS THAT OCCUR EVERY 5-10 YEARS THAT KEEP FLEECING THE MIDDLE CLASS AND KEEPING 1/3 OF ALL AMERICANS POOR AND THREATENING SOON TO MAKE 2/3 OF ALL AMERICANS POOR AS 50% OF ALL RETAILERS COLLAPSE (SEE GHOST TOWNS PODCAST AND BONUS MATERIALS) AND BRING ON THE NEXT PROLONGED GREAT DEPRESSION.

 

THEN READ THE RTDNOW CITIZENS’ PLAN WHICH TAMES OUR ENDLESS WEALTH CLASS BOOM-BUST CYCLE (50 years for major corrections, 5-10 years recessions for minor ones) FOR 300 MILLION CITIZENS (SO THEY DON’T KEEP GETTING FLEECED), WITH NEW RTDNOW ECONOMIC POLICY THAT FAVORS THE CITIZEN AND BUILDS THE NEXT AMERICAN DREAM ENGINE ON EVERY STREET, AND IN EVERY HOME, ACROSS THE NATION.

 

It’s not rocket science. When we’re all living in a closed economic system that is propped up by false economic policy, enabled by unregulated out of control money in politics which twists how policy is implemented, favoring the very few, and thereby channeling all the money to them, creating a Rampant Billionaire Class, (more Billionaires have been created since 1980 than ever!) to keep things that way, the economy will self-correct like Swiss clockwork every time the elite wealth class feel it will run out of steam. As a result, today in 2020, we are 3-6 years away from the next major economic decline and killing of more American dreams as they are fleeced again.

 

Remember the recent 2008-2011 recession? The Wealth class took all their cards off the table, pulled their money out early (sell and take profits in real estate and the stock market), and the economy falls in a domino affect on us all. Only $16 Trillion in stimulus got us out of that and that affect will run out soon. 

 

Depending on which list of historical recessions you look at, the attached is just one I found, there are even more economic recessions listed, depending upon how you define recession.

 

You’ll also note in the narrative that goes with the recessions chart, the distinction between bank panics and widespread bank failures. Also note the last recession was caused by wealth class Banking deregulation. 

 

It should be ABSOLUTELY CLEAR BY NOW, after 250 years of RUNAWAY BANKING, we need a CITIZEN FIRST RTDNOW BANKING PLAN AND REGULATION SYSTEM. It is the unregulated banking system that is the primary cause of money in politics (see donor lists for ‘known’ contributions) which is the primary cause of everything staying the same favoring the mega corporations and the global wealth class elite WHICH CAUSED OUR TITANIC INEQUALITY WHERE 1% HAVE MORE MONEY THAN GOD. And left 300 Million citizens economically behind: forever. 

 

In the last recession the term ‘Banksters’ meaning Gangsters running banks, was common. When thugs take your property, they are gangsters. This is after excessive Federal taxation and State taxation for everything imaginable of citizens and small and large businesses alike. 

 

How about we FIX OUR WORLD quickly, OVERNIGHT, with  an RTDNOW solution to this death of the small business (American dreams) and growth or exodus of medium sized business abroad (jobs and stagnant wages), by creating MILLIONS of new small businesses. 

 

We will grow 2 Million new viable small businesses per year for the next 10 years as we enact the RTDNOW PLAN. Remember, Microsoft was a small business, Google was, HP, etc. This will RE-CREATE our new economic AMERICAN DREAM ENGINE. This helps bankrupt and stressed cities all across America to thrive again. 

 

RTDNOW American Dream Tax Reform will bring down corporate tax rates but most importantly make 40-60% of these businesses that pay no or to low tax, pay a minimum. All these new RTDNOW PLAN businesses will be in a streamlined Lite-Tax system that is designed to help them grow and Keep Jobs in the US: start to finish. 

 

Ironically, that’s what cities do now (see Amazon article and RTDNOW commentary) to attract new businesses. We need a formalized and consistent national business and manufacturing policy that treats all businesses equally and fairly so they ALL stay put, removing the need to move. Talk to any business owner in California, they all want to get out to avoid rampant taxation of all kinds. As the famous Eagles song said, all that may be left there in 30 years  is Hotel California: one big tourist destination. Like a Mexican Riviera North.

 

My friends, 300 Million As 1, it’s time for NON-Political solutions. It’s time to forget divisive and abusive political parties (not intended by the founders) which are all over run by billionaire and corporate money, and have created and perpetuate, this Boom Bust cycle that keeps fleecing all citizens and killing the real American Dream of local self rule and economic freedom based on the founding principal of equality.

 

It’s time to leave the past, and continuing failures (THE PROBLEM) of a rigged system and move effortlessly and OVERNIGHT to SOLUTIONS. 

 

300 Million As 1, Add Your names, and please subscribe for $1.00 per month ($12.00/year) to fund the RTDNOW movement, and keep telling everyone RTDNOW.COM

 

And we will ALL enter the future, equality and prosperity for all citizens, TOGETHER, in an Online Stampede, as we all endorse the implementation of the RTDNOW Citizen’s PLAN.

 

REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM

DISCLAIMER: There are many online charts and analysis to choose from. But the one below seemed a somewhat balanced historical list of endless economic recessions. What is missing is the discussion of what Presidential bird brain, wealth class focused economic policies caused every recession as they were implemented 4-8 years before the affect was seen. Also missing is how much ordinary citizen wealth it drained, and how much national debt was added to smooth it out and hide the titanic theft of the American Dream. Also not shown, the wealth transfer from the 300 Million ordinary citizens to the elite 1-10% over 240 years that bird brain ‘wealth class presidential policy’ caused. Examples of bird-brained? 1920 and 1987 Federal Reserve Chairman both said “Markets can regulate themselves”. And we had a Great Depression after each. LIES. CHEATING. STEALING. How Much you ask? Our 2nd Great Depression was masked with $16 Trillion of stimulus that will wear off soon. While the Federal Reserve Chairman is supposedly ‘Independent’ of the President, just like Supreme Court Justices the President appoints, two flaws that enable the endless fleecing of all American citizens wealth, that the THE RTDNOW PLAN fixes, Presidents and federal reserve Chairman all belong to the same clubs. And every 50 years they decide to drain all citizens bank accounts and ease (fail to regulate) monetary policy. 

Which was about $150 TRILLION dollars over time. Yes, if we lived under RTDNOW economic policy EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN, even those on minimum wage, would have about $500,000 more money now. That means no poor in America (But we have100 Million today!), no hungry (But we have 36 million today down from 44 Million on food stamps 3 years ago), no poverty (But we have about 150 Million if counted accurately at almost 40% of all Americans).

 

In an RTDNOW world, everyone has a great standard of living WITHOUT much of any debt beyond their 1% RTDNOW home loan. The more energetic, just like today, would have a whole lot more. As you read the authors analysis focus on the endless consistency of economic recession. I mean, does your roof keep leaking after you fix it? No! That means the economy isn’t working for the citizen about ever 5-8 years. Now that it’s obvious, ask yourself why that’s never been fixed. Its not complicated. Every American citizen, every household, is like a small business. You have income that needs to go up, and expenses that need to stay flat to prosper and amass a little wealth over time to live and grow your American Dream: The RTDNOW PLAN does this for every citizen OVERNIGHT and fixes this recession to recession stealing of the American dream cycle. Managing the economy and every citizens American Dream GROWTH, is not the rocket science they (the wealth class elite) make it out to be to bamboozle us all and endlessly steal citizen wealth in every recession. There are 100 million households in America. 50 million are in poverty making less than $47,000 per year. After rent or mortgage, they have about $1,800 per month to spend on ALL THEIR BILLS. Which always comes up short. Which is why there is $18 TRILLION in Consumer Debt again. Now, if everyone had a 1% non profit home loan, their monthly payment for housing would decrease by 50%. They'd have about $10,000 more per year to get by. This helps most leap out of poverty OVERNIGHT.

RTDNOW CONCLUSIONS

1. Recessions are preventable 
2. Elite Wealth class control of the political system, through money in politics, causes them.
3. The Federal Reserve has not done a good job, is not representing the American people just a global elite wealth class (who founded it / and owns it to this day), and is obsolete and should be replaced by an RTDNOW U.S. Citizens central bank. When the global economy soon collapses and our economy collapse AGAIN, this will seem OBVIOUS to all citizens. Because...they will take all their money out. How? Easy, they stop lending it!
4. In one fell swoop THE RTDNOW PLAN fixes all these flaws that keep making American Citizens poor and our nation bankrupt.
5.
IT’S TIME TO TAKE ACTION. 300 Million As 1: It’s time to FIX OUR WORLD! Add Your Name then tell everyone: REDEEM THE DREAM at RTDNOW.COM

The History of U.S. Recessions and Banking Crises

 

By Jeffrey Rogers Hummel

October 22, 2015 9:16AM

 

I have never been entirely satisfied with how either economists or historians identify and date past U.S. recessions and banking crises. Economists, as their studies go further back in time, have a tendency to rely on highly unreliable data series that exaggerate the number of recessions and panics, something most strikingly but not exclusively documented in the notable work of Christina Romer (1986b, 1989, 2009). Historians, on the other hand, relying on more anecdotal and less quantitative evidence, tend to exaggerate the duration and severity of recessions. So I have created a revised chronology in the table below. From the nineteenth century to the present, it distinguishes between three types of events: major recessions, bank panics, and periods of bank failures. I have tried to integrate the best of the approaches of both economists and historians, using them to cross check each other. My chronology therefore differs in important ways from prior lists.

One of the table’s benefits is that it gives a visual presentation of which recessions were accompanied by bank panics and which were not. Equally important, it distinguishes between bank panics and periods of significant numbers of bank failures. These two categories are often confused or conflated, and yet this distinction is critical. Not all bank panics (periods of contagious runs and sometimes bank suspensions) were accompanied by numerous bank failures, nor were all periods of numerous failures accompanied by panics.

Among other advantages, the table helps highlight how sui generis the Great Depression was. Not only does it have the longest downturn (43 months), but it also is one of the few depressions accompanied by both bank panics and numerous bank failures. Once the Great Depression is thrown out as a statistical outlier, we observe no significant change in the frequency, duration, or magnitude of recessions between the period before and the period after that unique downturn. Given that the Great Depression witnessed the initiation of extensive government policies to alleviate depressions and that the Federal Reserve had been created fifteen years earlier explicitly to prevent such crises, this overall historical continuity with a single exception indicates that government intervention and central banking has done little, if anything, to dampen the business cycle.

There has been a dramatic elimination of bank panics, at least until the financial crisis of 2007-2008, but the timing suggests that deposit insurance more than the Federal Reserve deserves the credit. Furthermore, note that more outbreaks of numerous bank failures occurred in the hundred years after the Federal Reserve was created than the hundred years before, with the Federal Reserve presiding over the most serious case of all: the Great Depression.

Because my table departs from previous lists and dating, in what follows, I explain the most important differences for each of the three categories. At the end of the post is a list of the most useful references I consulted.

 

Recessions

I have almost entirely confined the list of major recessions to those constituting part of a standard business cycle, omitting periods of economic dislocation resulting from U.S. wars or government embargoes. For the number and dating of recessions from 1948 forward, I have exclusively followed the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). But prior to 1929, the NBER notoriously exaggerates the volatility of the U.S. economy. Moreover, between 1929 and 1948, the NBER reports a post-World War II recession lasting from February to October 1945 that no one was aware of at time, as easily confirmed by looking at the unemployment data as well as contemporary writings. Richard K. Vedder and Lowell E. Gallaway (1993) pointed out in their neglected study of U.S. unemployment that this alleged postwar recession is a statistical artifact that varies in severity with the regular comprehensive revisions of GNP/GDP estimates by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The BEA’s original estimates showed only a minor downturn, subsequent revisions converted it into a major downturn, and the latest comprehensive revision of 2013 have reduced its magnitude, although not to the level of the BEA’s original estimates.

For the pre-1929 period, therefore, I have only listed recessions that can be documented with unemployment data or more traditional historical evidence. The unemployment data I have employed are the revisions of both J. R. Vernon (1994) and Romer (1986b). I have still accepted NBER dating, which only goes back to 1857, for those pre-1929 recessions that I consider genuine, with the notable exception of 1873. In that case, the NBER dating (based on the Kuznets-Kendrick series) of a 65-month recession is so inconsistent with other evidence that it was even questioned by Milton Friedman and Anna Jacobson Schwartz in their Monetary History (1963). This is one of the most striking cases in which some observers at the time and many economists today have confused mild secular deflation with a depression – a confusion exposed by George Selgin in Less than Zero (1997). Even the Kuznets-Kendrick estimates show no decline in real net national product during this recession, and an acceleration of its growth after 1875. I have therefore accepted Joseph H. Davis’s (2006) revised dating, shortening this recession to not more than 27 months, and probably less if he had attempted a monthly rather than just an annual revision of the depression’s end point.

Estimates of U.S. GDP prior to the Civil War are even more problematic, making precise monthly dating of recessions impossible. So I have relied upon the consensus of standard historical accounts along with the GDP statistics in Historical Statistics: Millennial Edition (Carter 2006) to determine what qualifies as an actual recession and its annual dating. The one case where I diverge from some (but not all) mainstream historical accounts is the alleged recession during the banking crisis that began in 1839, after the recovery from the 1837 recession. As Friedman and Schwartz (1963), Douglass C. North (1961), and Peter Temin (1969) have all noted, estimates of real GDP growth over the next four years are quite robust. Thus, 1839-1843 appears to be another case were deflation (in this case, quite severe) is confused with depression.

Bank Panics

 

The number of bank panics is also often exaggerated. For the post-Civil War period, many authors follow the enumeration first compiled by O. M. W. Sprague (1910), and some even add in a few more. But Elmus Wicker (2000) has persuasively demonstrated that the alleged Panics of 1884 and 1890 were really only incipient financial crises nipped in the bud by the actions of bank clearinghouses. For the pre-Civil War period, especially egregious in its listing of panics is the widely cited work of Willard Long Thorp (1926), which even mistakenly attributes to the United Sates panics that affected only England (those in 1825 and 1847).

I have confined my own list to those panics that Andrew J. Jalil (2015) in his comprehensive survey of previous literature defines as “major,” with two exceptions. First, I have omitted the very minor economic contraction of 1833, following Andrew Jackson’s phased withdrawal of government deposits from the Second Bank of the United States, since the impact on banks was almost entirely confined to the Second Bank and its branches. Second, I have included the more pronounced global financial crisis at the outbreak of World War I, in which the U.S. stock market was shut down for four months, although the emergency currency authorized under the Aldrich-Vreeland Act prevented bank suspensions. The monthly dating of other panics listed is confined to the period during which major suspensions or runs occurred and does not always reflect how long banks suspended, which for the War of 1812 was until January 1817.

Bank Failures

 

Bank panics, even when accompanied by numerous suspensions (or what Friedman and Schwartz prefer to call “restrictions on cash payments” to distinguish them from government suspensions of redeemability), do not always result in a major number of bank failures.

For instance, Calomiris and Gorton report the failure of only six national banks out of a total of 6412 during the Panic of 1907, or less than 0.1 percent. Of course the Panic of 1907 was concentrated among state banks and trust companies. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, there are no good time series on the failures of state banks for the period prior to the creation of the Federal Reserve. Yet there were over 12,000 state banks at the outset of the Panic of 1907. One very fragmentary and incomplete estimate of total bank suspensions (rather than failures) in Historical Statistics (1975), including both state and national banks, puts the number during that panic at 153. Even if all suspensions had resulted in failures, which of course did not happen, we still have a failure rate of 0.7 percent for all commercial banks.

Confusion of bank suspensions with bank failures can even infect serious scholarly work. For example, in Michael D. Bordo and David C. Wheelock (1998), charts meant to show bank failures are instead clearly depicting statistics on the annual number of bank suspensions. Similarly, periods of numerous bank failures do not always coincide with bank panics, as the S&L crisis dramatically illustrates. So it is crucial to distinguish between periods of panics and failures, although specifying the latter requires judgment calls. For the monthly number of national bank failures prior to the Fed’s creation, I have depended heavily on Comptroller of the Currency (1915), v. 2, Table 35, pp. 66-103.

 

Summary

To be sure, banking in the United States has never been fully deregulated. Even from 1846 until 1861, under the Independent Treasury during the alleged free-banking period, when there was almost no significant national regulation of the financial system, state governments still imposed extensive, counter-productive banking regulation. This fact obviously complicates any comparison of the periods before and after the creation of the Federal Reserve System in 1914. Nonetheless, such a comparison offers more than a prima facie case against the Fed’s success at either stabilizing the U.S. economy or preventing banking crises. In short, the widespread belief among economists, historians, and journalists that the Federal Reserve was an essential, major improvement appears to be no more than unreflective faith in government economic management, with little foundation in the historical evidence.

NOBODY LIKES HIS OR HER TIME WASTED. Everybody always wants to know three things pretty fast: “Who are you? Why are you here? And what can I do for you?” That’s life.

 

If you’ve read the RTDNOW.COM website, you know who I am. I’m an ordinary hard working guy of 59 years old in 2018, who wrote and performed the Rock Opera to Save America, and wrote The RTDNOW PLAN to restore EVERYONE’S American dream overnight and save America from total collapse. That's who I am.

 

So why am I here, in your face again? I need your help: everyone’s. I need 100 million to 300 million American Citizens to participate almost effortless by just telling everyone daily to Add Your Name! REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM. That’s what I want from you, five minutes daily. But now for the really BIG question, and the really BIG answer. Why should you bother to participate daily at RTDNOW.COM?

 

THE BIG QUESTION

WHY WILL WE ALL“STAMPEDE” 300 MILLION AS 1 ONLINE

TELLING EVERYONE DAILY TO ADD OUR NAMES AT RTDNOW.COM?

 

The BIG ANSWER

AMERICA IS ON A PATH TO TOTAL ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.

THE RTDNOW PLAN PREVENTS THAT AND RESTORES

EVERYONE’S FULL AMERICAN DREAM FAST: OVERNIGHT

 

 

FIRST LET’S REVIEW EXACTLY WHAT “TOTAL COLLAPSE” OF AMERICA MEANS TO EVERY CITIZEN, IF WE DON’T ALL PARTICIPATE FOR FREE, AT RTDNOW.COM

 

I’ve spent a lot of these Album 1 Song Bonus Materials talking about how, as we move past $26 TRILLION in national debt today to $40 TRILLION in 10 short years, what I think is the ‘Tipping Point’, the whole American economy will TOTALLY COLLAPSE. And somewhat permanently: because we don’t make things anymore. 50% of the jobs in America today are minimum wage: and most are retail based. I’ve also talked in detail (Listen to the Ghost Towns Podcast) about how advanced technology of today will QUICKLY accelerate, as its implemented by Corporate America EVERYWHERE, to take away, LOSE, 40 MILLION MORE JOBS over the next 10-20 years as the Internet, Robotics and new, low cost Digital Globalization, all mature: at once.

 

Combine the crushing $40 TRILLION national debt we’re looking at, with no way to repay it, together with the TITANIC loss of 40 million MORE jobs, and its 10 times as bad as the Great Depression of 1929. Back then just 25% were out of work and 1/3 of all Americans were in Poverty. Today in 2020 we have 36 MILLION American Citizens on Food Stamps. That’s MORE than all the Americans of the 1929 Great Depression, in Bread Lines. Our Bread Lines are invisible today. And today in there are over 100 MILLION American Citizens living BELOW the poverty line: 3 TIMES MORE THAN THE GREAT DEPRESSION.

 

THAT’S 1/3 OF ALL AMERICANS today in POVERTY, in America! The numbers are all online, the media never puts it all together, connects the dots like this because they represent the wealth class (who literally own them: 6 media companies control 90% of all media today) who are doing quite well. And ‘they’ like it that way: they have no plan to restore 300 million citizen’s American dreams. That’s why you need to act for yourself at RTDNOW.COM. Every time the economy crashes the wealth class funded by the banks look at it as an opportunity to ‘thin’ the middle class as they steal your properties for pennies on the dollar. So today in, RIGHT NOW, POVERTY IN AMERICA IS FAR WORSE THAN THE 1929 GREAT DEPRESSION. Wow is right. AMERICA'S BEEN COLLAPSING FOR 40 YEARS. Time to wake up.

IT’S WAY PAST TIME FOR ALL 300 MILLION AMERICANS TO AWAKEN: PARDON A LITTLE, ‘AMERICAN DREAM LOSS REALITY SHOCK THERAPY’

 

I’ll apologize in advance for the tough love, but someone has to tell the American people what is coming round the next bend. Americans are smart and we all want to restore our full American dreams. But nobody has had the grit to put it all the details together of the problem and solution for the American people, so I did. I also did it so we can all act together, enough in advance to avoid a repeat of our biggest economic collapse ever. And so we American Citizens can avoid the pain, trauma hardship to our families, to our kids lives, by fixing our biggest problems now before the bubble bursts again on us all.

 

Now that we put all the big economic ‘dots’ together in the last section, let’s all look FORWARD at the trajectory of American daily economic life over the next 10-20 years. And let’s pinpoint its affect going forward, on 300 million American Dreams, already on life support, debt, in 2020. I want every American Citizen to really look at what the next 10-20 years will hold if we don’t all act by endorsing the RTDNOW PLAN that also rebuilds the next American Dream Engine and creates over 40 million well paying jobs over 10 years. By the way, all this dot connecting is somewhat straight forward for me because I’ve spent all my adult life doing it: understanding numbers, people, and how events will project themselves, and what corrective action to take so both sides come out well. That’s all small business lending is. Here today, I’m just looking at all of America and 300 million people. About 100 million households, all in debt, and just like a small business loan, they all need income to repay that debt. Pretty straight forward when you look at managing the American dream in every home that way. I’ve just simplified what our government says they can’t. Provide financial security for 100 Million households.

 

If we combine $40 TRILLION in 2030-2040 America National debt we are on course for, what I think is our Tipping Point, (And I’m not counting States debt and consumer debt which today is another $20 TRILLION right now in 2020) and 40 Million job losses to Advanced Technology, over the next 10-20 years (and I’m not counting earnings reductions as we have to compete with kids online in Pakistan/China, etc.) we QUICKLY jump from 100 million AMERICAN CITIZENS in Poverty TODAY, to 200 million by about 2030-2040 America. Gasp is right. I don’t know what State of the Union our Presidents give each year, but it's not the real one 300 million Americans are living. This is it.

 

Details? Food Stamps recipients will DOUBLE! Increasing from 36 million in 2020, to 75 million PEOPLE in 2030-2040. This puts MORE pressure on our national deficit of $6 Billion a DAY. We, the US Treasury, borrows $6 Billion every morning from around the world. It will jump to $9 Billion a DAY. Why? Because there is also a Tipping Point to how many hungry people you can have before you have a real revolt. 150 million to 200 million hungry angry people cannot be stopped by an Army of 1 million soldiers and 400,000 police nationwide who really don’t want to fire on all their brothers and sisters: American Citizens.

 

In the 1960’s there were riots ALL OVER AMERICA and the world to stop runaway government then. And that was only about 5 million people involved and the government thought they would come over the White House fences. This is not a joke. President Richard Nixon, talking to Henry Kissinger his Secretary of State, in the Oval Office, looking out at a mob of angry protestors about 1968, said “Henry, this may be the end. If they all come over the fence for us, our boys won’t shoot them.” This was after the Kent State protest where 17 students were shot! And 4 Students were KILLED! By ROTC soldiers with riffles. One killed was shot in the back. They had backpacks and calculators. Listen to my Podcast for my song Make Some Beautiful Noise that covers that event in detail. After Kent State, nobody in the military was going to shoot our unarmed kids again who were trying to have THEIR runaway government hear their voices.

 

And at a TIPPING POINT, when you get 150 million (that’s HALF of all American Citizens) hungry angry people in America, it starts to boil over. And the world who already knows we’re bankrupt unable to pay our national debt in 2020, will either stop lending to us or raise the interest rates dramatically from almost nothing now, which enables the huge national debt, to about 5-8%. At that point inflation and devaluation will instantly wipe out 50% of all the home equity for most lower and middle class Americans (300 million ordinary citizens) because the banks will have failed again and nobody will be lending. The Banks will fail again because 50%+ of their loans are on commercial real estate property. And 50% of all retail locations will become vacant, and unable to pay their bank loans, over the next 20 years, as 70% of ALL retail sales…GO ONLINE.

 

SEE MY SONG GHOST TOWNS for Many Examples. One Example: Sears/Kmart had 3,800 stores 10 years ago. Today they have less than 182 stores and all may go out of business soon. The irony: Sears was the original catalogue sales company. They forgot to go online, and today good old Amazon, once a new business, took their old business model, catalogue sales from home…online. That’s what happens when you miss the boat: you slowly collapse, THEN DRAMATICALLY FAIL.

I’m spelling this all out now for EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN so we don’t all MISS THE BOAT.

 

 

300 MILLION AS 1 DON’T MISS THE RTDNOW CITIZEN PARTICIPATION BOAT

The extinction of the American buffalo from 1820-1870 mirrors the extinction of the American Dream in America from 1970-2020. NOTE THE 50 YEAR CYCLE. The elite class plan was published in 1971, the Louis Powell Memo.

Photograph from the mid-1870s of a pile of American bison skulls waiting to be ground for fertilizer. We can't see it, but we have such piles of American dreams. 36 MILLION on Food Stamps, 30 Million Homeless.

Like millions of American buffalo were slaughtered to near extinction by advanced technologies of its time, the ordinary American citizen finds himself and herself in the same position, rapidly being made extinct by the acceleration of advanced technologies in our time replacing the need for us as the job market became global to the lowest bidder.

And just like rifles and railroads of the 1800’s led to the quick demise of 50 Million buffalo who had been king of the American frontier, if we don’t all act 300 Million As 1 to implement the RTDNOW PLAN to Save the American Dream by creating 40 Million high paying jobs by building our next American Dream engine over ten years, we will all watch the convergence of advanced kill the American Dream. 

The coming convergence of advanced technologies of robotics, artificial intelligence, digital globalization and the full use of a mature internet GLOBALLY by 6 Billion people, COMBINED WITH AN AUTONOMOUS REVOLUTION, self driving cars, etc, etc, will WIPE OUT what’s left of jobs and good wages, it will totally kill the America dream, in 20 short years. We will all be left with half the manual labor jobs at minimum wage: basically a return to the terrible working conditions of 1820. 

That’s what’s coming. Now the question is you. Do you want to be an extinct Buffalo? Or do you want to take a simple free action of hearing a Daily song and helping me tell every single person in this country RTDNOW.COM Daily? If you do nothing you’ve made your choice: your a buffalo about to be slaughtered. 

But if you decide to REDEEM THE DREAM NOW we will transform America with an overnight RTDNOW PLAN and restore everyone’s American Dream.
I’m asking every single American: Add your name now and tell everyone RTDNOW.COM and we will have a rapid nationwide Online Stampede of 300 Million Ordinary everyday citizens to Save EVERYONES American Dream. 

It’s EASY and simple. It happens daily on your cell phone as you tell everyone about the Daily free access song you just listened to. There’s 100 songs to promote 100% citizen activism at RTDNOW.COM

DETERMINE YOUR OWN FUTURE IN A 300 MILLION AS 1 ONLINE STAMPEDE AT RTDNOW.COM BY ADDING YOUR NAME, OR, LIKE THE MYTHICAL AMERICAN BUFFALO, YOUR FUTURE WILL CONTINUE TO BE DETERMINED FOR YOU BY RUNAWAY GOVERNMENT.

 

THE MORAL OF THE STORY: DON’T JUST WATCH YOUR AMERICAN DREAM BECOME AN EXTINCT BUFFALO AND END UP AS A MYTH ON A COIN! TAKE ACTION TELLING EVERYONE RTDNOW.COM DAILY

Here’s the only place the American Dream may exist after 2040 if we don’t all add our names in an 300 Million As 1 Online Stampede at RTDNOW.COM by 2020: in a coin commemorating what we all lost. Like the Bison of 1890 reduced to less than 1,100 animals from over 50 Million, so has the global wealth class elite thinned the middle class over the last 50 years. 

Get busy, it’s time to bring back the American Dream to every single citizen. Tell everyone RTDNOW.COM daily adding it to all your social media. That’s how we all, every single citizen, effortlessly helps create a nationwide Online Stampede at RTDNOW.COM

ABOUT ADRIAN'S SONG
In an Online Stampede

You should be in shock about now. Because if we don’t all act, America will implode and may not even survive as a country. For examples, see the old USSR, Argentina, Greece, and soon add Japan, etc. Take a breath and get a good night of sleep so you can think clearly. Then tomorrow start doing your homework a little at a time (I’ve been doing it for about 10 years) on what I laid out above. Please read ALL my RTDNOW Time Traveler Moments at the end of the Song Bonus Materials, which lay out all the dates the American dream was dismantled bit by bit and the runaway government ramped up that caused us to all be staring the total death of the American dream right in the eyes. Check other sources, many other sources. I want you to REALLY do your homework as I have. That’s how you become a believer in RTDNOW. It’s not because Adrian says so. It’s all out there. Take a close look for yourself. PRINT THIS OUT and talk to your friends about all this. Welcome to the RTDNOW Movement, because the numbers are what they are. And the only way to change them? Get everyone to tell everyone to RTDNOW.COM 300 million as 1.

 

To be clear, I’m not Hank Paulson our former Wall St. Treasury Secretary giving you “5 minutes until the world ends notice” like he did to Congress on the $700 Billion 2009 Bank bailout that wasn’t needed, to make you do anything. I’m giving you many months. Because to restore your American dream, you have to first understand what the real American dream was (the Song Bonus Materials spell that out) that was lost. Then you can come to the knowing that you are only living fragments of the real American dream now, which is the poverty and agony we are all in explained a bit above.

 

And YOU HAVE TO WANT TO SAVE YOURSELF. You have to want to restore your own full American dream. There’s only one catch in the whole RTDNOW effort. We all have to work and act together ONLINE at RTDNOW.COM. Yes that means we are ALL effortlessly shifting from the ME First world that brought us division, bankruptcy, and to total collapse, to a WE First world where we all benefit and prosper. And we will do it in a heartbeat as we all add our names at RTDNOW.COM.

 

The Good News? Americans band together easily every time our way of life is threatened. And I think I’ve laid it out above in some detail: every single American’s way of life is being REALLY threatened.

 

 

RTDNOW, THE BIG PICTURE:

WHAT EVERYONE GETS FOR PARTICIPATING, AS WE ALL ADD OUR NAMES IN AN ONLINE STAMPEDE AND TELL EVERYONE RTDNOW.COM DAILY

 

THE RTDNOW (Redeem The Dream Now) Citizen’s PLAN RESTORES EVERYONE’S FULL AMERICAN DREAM OF EQUALITY AND SAVES AMERICA FROM TOTAL COLLAPSE BY:

 

1. DOUBLING YOUR NET INCOME OVERNIGHT

 

2. ENDING RUNAWAY GOVERNMENT PERMANENTLY

 

3. BUILDING THE NEXT AMERICAN DREAM ENGINE,

    CREATING 40 MILLION NEW GOOD JOBS, OVER 10 YEARS.

 

The RTDNOW PLAN needs to start being implemented about 2020 so that we have time to counter act the forces (massive new jobs losses coming and titanic growing debt) that could collapse American and 300 million American dreams, if not addressed, well before, we actually do collapse.

 

 

RTDNOW, THE PERSONAL PICTURE:

HOW THE RTDNOW PLAN BENEFITS YOU PERSONALLY.

LET ME EXPLAIN IN MORE DETAIL WHY EVERYONE SHOULD HELP DAILY TO CREATE AND ONLINE STAMPEDE TELLING EVERYONE DAILY: ADD YOUR NAME! REDEEM THE DREAM NOW AT RTDNOW.COM 

 

Once we have about 100 million people adding their names, AN OVERWHELMING NUMBER, so the RTDNOW FULL PLAN or KEY ELEMENTS at a time can be pushed through Congress, or implemented by we the willing people, the RTDNOW PLAN quickly reduces all Americans living expenses by 50%. It does this with monetary policy changes that can happen overnight, like 1% non profit fixed rate 50 years home loans for all. It’s not rocket science. We just need at least 100 million people to add their names at RTDNOW.COM to push it through a Congress controlled by Corporate money in politics, which is why I need EVERYONE’S participation.

 

What does that do for 300 Million ordinary Americans? That’s like giving 90% of all Americans, EVERYONE, a 50-100% permanent wage increase overnight. It effectively for most DOUBLES your Monthly Net Income. And what does that do for 100 million Americans in poverty now? 90% JUMP out of poverty INSTANTLY because their cost of living just decreased by 50%. What does that do for 75 million Americans (44 million with student loans they can’t pay) trying to graduate and earn a living? It let’s them live their American dream of home ownership, continue education, or start a business with RTDNOW American Dream 1% Business Loans.

 

When home loans are only 1%, two people on minimum wage can easily afford a home that will NEVER be taken away by a bank. The RTDNOW Economic Bill of Rights will also include a Wall St. transaction tax to pay off all student debt and make education free in America. That Wall St. tax is not a new idea. The new idea in an RTDNOW PLAN is having 100 million to 300 million realizing we all need to do it and acting together so it gets done. Seniors will no longer be in pain of not having their medications, or bankrupted by unregulated drug and medication costs. An RTDNOW Prescription Cooperative of 300 Million Citizens will be formed almost instantly (that’s why you add your name, you add your name once and you get all the parts of the RTDNOW PLAN = Simplicity) and your medication costs will go down by 50% or more overnight.

 

The RTDNOW PLAN makes Monetary Policy changes to favor 300 million ordinary citizens. To name two here, Citizen tax reform (reduction) and new Economic Equality policy changes like 1% home loans for all mentioned above. Congressmen got 1% home loans, why shouldn’t we all? It’s all our money in the banks. And the banks are regulated by whom? OUR government. And who is OUR Government? 300 million people as they add their names at RTDNOW.COM. Please read the RTDNOW PLAN. It’s a simple plan. The RTDNOW Citizen’s PLAN, Act 3, is the RTDNOW Economic Bill of Rights. It has 10 elements, a few briefly outlined above.

 

We need to talk about home renters in America. It’s at its highest point since 1965. About 52 million Americans are renters today and its growing fast as jobs are lost and wages go down. What’s renting mean? It means you don’t have the down payment to buy a home that will double in value over 20 years and you are on minimum wage so you can’t qualify for a home loan at 4-5% interest today in 2020. RENTING IS KEEPING 52 MILLION PERSISTENTLY POOR IN AMERICA. PLEASE WAKE UP, BECAUSE RTDNOW IS ENDING THIS POVERTY CYCLE PERMANTENLY!!!

AND ITS EASY. That's the irony. Rent by the way, seem to be SKYROCKETING over the last five years! Ouch.

You tell me; what happens to a 5% home loan payment when it is only 1%? And what happens if you amortize it over 50 years not 30? Your payment drops by more than half. EVERYONE ON MINIMUM WAGE NOW QUALIFIES FOR A HOME LOAN AT 1%. And the payment is so reasonable; it will never be foreclosed on. Like we got used to seeing millions of Americans thrown out of their own homes when the government didn’t do their job to manage the economy. Its time to end that permanently. The RTDNOW PLAN does that. What about the down payment? We have programs for some time that let you buy with NO money down. If you have made rent payments for 24 months without missing one, you will qualify for a no money down RTDNOW HOME LOAN. 300 million as 1, add your name at RTDNOW.COM. Read the RTDNOW PLAN where its described how these will be paid for.

 

And what does all that do? EVERYONE gets to live his or her American dream right now. Everyone who pays rent monthly is no longer throwing their money away and getting NO equity appreciation. THE RTDNOW PLAN makes everyone in America, even those on minimum wage, which is 50% of Americans, a millionaire over their lifetime. Why is this important? You need to retire with at least $500,000 so as you live longer you will not be in poverty in old age. REMEMBER: RTDNOW IS ENDING POVERTY IN AMERICA PERMANENTLY!!!!

 

This is a big chunk of that. A $250,000 home doubles in value about every 25 years depending on where you live in the United States. Over 50 years it will be worth about $750,000…and it will be paid off well before that. I hope EVERYONE IS GETTING THE RTDNOW PLAN ‘Restoring Everyone’s Complete American Dream’ PICTURE.

 

It’s the real American dream IMPLEMENTATION PLAN written BY ME ADRIAN, for you, 300 million ordinary American citizens in school or making less than about $300,000 per year. That covers 90% of all of us. Please add your name. More details will be released over time as the opera and Albums roll out. Landlords of Apartment buildings will be offered 1% loans for 50% reductions in rents under certain conditions. As tenants move out to own on the RTDNOW PROGRAMS, they will have to lower their rental rates, and they will beg for RTDNOW 1% APARTMENT LOANS.

 

By the way

THIS IS HOW WE CONTROL ALL RENTS IN AMERICA

ALL THE TIME. PLEASE WAKE UP.

WE, with RTDNOW, ARE ENDING POVERTY PERMANENTLY.

 

But if we are able to put 52 million Americans into their own homes over 10-20 years, with 1% home loans that will NEVER be foreclosed upon because the payment is so low, Apartment owners won’t need 1% loans. BECAUSE THEY WILL TURN THEM INTO CONDOMINIUMS AND SELL THEM TO THEIR TENANTS AND CHARGE A MONTHLY FEE AND CASH OUT BIG TIME. YOU'RE WELCOME INVESTORS, THAT'S YOUR EXIT PLAN AND ITS A GOOD ONE.

 

And what else happens? It causes a building economic boom all across America that lasts for 25 years. And what else happens? THAT CREATES MANY JOBS FOR A LONG TIME. And what else happens? 300 million Americans now get 50-100% more each month net income to do what? Save, payoff credit cards, or spend on needed items. And what does that do? EVERYONE’S STANDARD OF LIVING, 300 MILLION CITIZEN’S, IMPROVES DRAMATICALLY. WE ARE ENDING POVERTY.

 

And lastly today, what else does that do? All the Corporations I rail about as evil because of their money in politics to twist policy to their favor and against the ordinary citizen…they make a WHOLE lot more money. They do because ALL Americans are buying more because they now have the money to do it. And as we started this Bonus Material, they are using technology to remove over 50% of all jobs/wages. So they are making a ton of money with the RTDNOW PLAN by default. IN THE RTDNOW PLAN, WE ALL WIN. 300 MILLION ORDINARY CITIZENS AND CORPORATE AMERICA UNFORTUNATELY.

 

 

CONCLUSION THE RTDNOW PLAN RESTORES EVERYONES AMERICAN DREAM

 

The RTDNOW PLAN will transform American into the country of ALL our dreams overnight. When you add your name at RTDNOW.COM you are endorsing The RTDNOW Citizen’s PLAN. But I’m sure every citizen, at least 300 million hard working ordinary citizens will love it. 300 million citizens will love it because it was written for them. The 1-10% of Americans who run the wealth class already have the economy working for them earning $300,000-$10 million+ a year now and have a net worth over $1 million. They have taken care of themselves by using a wealth class/Wall St. system of economics we have all suffered under for decades. Fine, great.

 

But now its time to put an RTDNOW economy in place that works for the other 300 million citizens. An RTDNOW 2020 Citizen-First 2020 America, that really works for EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN.

 

 

GEE, ADRIAN, THAT ALL SOUNDS GREAT!

BUT HOW ARE WE GONNA GET IT DONE?

I’M NOT SURE YOU BELIVE ME YET

THAT IF YOU PARTICIPATE FOR 5 MINUTES A DAY

THIS WILL BE FAST AND SIMPLE.

SO LET’S TALK ABOUT THE SIMPLICITY OF YOU

HELPING CREATE 100% PARTICIPATION DAILY

 

The RTDNOW PLAN, starts by everyone creating an RTDNOW MOVEMENT, almost effortlessly creating 100% Citizen participation. As you hear a daily song, add your name, and tell everyone about it DAILY by SHARING. The whole Redeem The Dream Now Rock Opera and Movement has only one purpose: create the new era of 100% citizen activism at RTDNOW.COM to restore the real American dream of equality. It’s not a new concept. Our Declaration of Independence spelled it out quite clearly. And just like in the Revolutionary War that followed the signing of the declaration, all the colonists were given simple instructions as I’m giving: “Everyone tell Everyone!”

 

That’s what’s needed to create equality and transformational change to really restore everyone’s full American dream. And just like then, 100 million to 300 million ordinary citizens today, of all ages, that demand their American dream be restores cannot be stopped. Today in 2020, everyone has cell phones. Every five minutes or less most of us check email or texts or social media. We can all end all our emails and texts with a new signature of: Add Your Name! REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM.

 

And 300 million citizens will get the message in MONTHS. WE ALL HAVE THE SOLUTION in the palm of all our hands right now: CELL PHONES. I’m just asking you to actively use them to restore everyone’s American dream and save America by telling everyone RTDNOW.COM

 

IT’S SO CONVENIENT

AND GET BUSY!

 

It’s so convenient today to all participate online, anywhere, anytime on our cell phones, and basically for free. The whole Redeem The Dream ‘Rock Opera to Save America’ is Free-Access-Always. 

 

The reason for 100 daily songs is to GIVE YOU and Millions of Americans, 100 PLUS TIMES to inspire EVERYONE daily to tell everyone, Add Your Name! REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM. Creating 100 songs and all this research and writing was the tough part. You get the easy part: Spend 5 minutes a day SHARING RTDNOW.COM.

 

Lastly today, I had a simple premise when I began this long journey to create RTDNOW. I knew I had to try to save America and Everyone’s American Dream. Save it for us, for our loved ones, for our children, for all Americans. And I knew if I could get EVERYONE to just try with me, we’d make it happen! I’ve spent almost 10 years on this project. I’m asking every American to spend 5 minutes a day and its basically free. Please Participate!!!

 

300 MILLION AS 1! EVERYONE TELL EVERYONE DAILY!

 

ADD YOUR NAME! REDEEM THE DREAM NOW at RTDNOW.COM
