Worshiping the State – How Liberalism Became Our State Religion

Dr. Benjamin Wiker visits for the first time as a guest on the show, while Michael Oliver and Bob Moriarty return.

The U.S. Constitution prohibits the U.S. Government from establishing or funding a religion, but Dr. Wiker explains why that is exactly what the U.S. government does when it funds all manner of liberal policies of the political left in America. Wiker explains how the philosophies of Machiavelli, Hobbes, Spinoza and Rousseau set the table for a return to a paganism that is leading the acceleration of economic, spiritual and moral decay in America and in the West in general, and how this deathly trend can be reversed.

Bob Moriarty returns to discuss another one of his favorite gold mine exploration companies and to talk about his new book titled, “Basic Investing in Resource Stocks – the Idiot’s Guide.” Michael Oliver holds the hands of nervous Nellie gold bugs to assure us better days are coming for yellow metal bulls.

Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton’s International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton’s Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX.

In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.

In 1992 he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank’s Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism.
