I am tossing this out there for you to see. Wondering, do you have plans for a foreword? I think it is supposed to be done by someone of note, who I am not, but maybe this would also serve as a preface, but I think that is actually supposed to be written by the author. So maybe introduction is appropriate. Let me know what you think.
-----------------

bear, call me bear: a four letter word that can be typed single-handedly to quickly sign into an online Liberty focused forum. There on that Liberty forum I met Josf, AKA Joe. It seems Joe has been aware of the vanishing Liberty in our Land from Sea to Shining Sea for more than 25 years. Me, I had just woken up to that fact.

Yes, I knew something was wrong at Waco; and Ruby Ridge certainly didn’t sit right. When George Bush, Sr. said, “No new taxes,” and then proceeded to break that promise within four years, one eye popped open, but then only to close back again in sleep. But, I was no longer in a deep sleep. I thought the televised broadcast of the Cheshire-grinning George W. Bush “handing” the presidency over to Barack Hussein Obama seemed peculiar. I remember that moment and thinking: That picture of those two men seems odd. I can still see it in my mind’s eye. I remember taking note as Barak Hussein Obama traipsed around the world introducing himself during his first presidential campaign, and meeting with cohorts and “experts” to begin solving the economic woes of these United States before he was even elected. All nicely broadcast for public consumption.

He was elected, and then my search began. It seemed this new president had surrounded himself with some infamous names. His college records and birth certificate were not forthcoming. I remember one of his appointees saying Mao Zedong and Mother Teresa were her favorite political philosophers. That sure didn’t sound right to me. Meanwhile, Glenn Beck was unraveling a twisted web of fraud and deceit during his FOX News program. And me, I was surfing talk radio and various web broadcasts trying to figure out what in the world was going on in these United States.

I finally stumbled upon Ron Paul…less than a year before the 2012 election and then I stumbled upon a Liberty forum. My awakening had begun and I was frightened. My first post was an open letter to my congresswoman, Vicky Hartzler, expressing my concern regarding the Erosion of Civil Liberty for the sake of Homeland Security in the name of Fighting the War on Terror.

And so my Liberty Education began, and there on that forum, I found Joe. An average Joe you might say, but he is not! That Joe spent countless hours walking me thru the basics of a Political Economy Liberty-themed Mindset….and I spent countless hours asking questions and discussing those generous gifts left for me via that online forum.

In addition to my quest to understand the demise of these United States, I also desired that Joe might know what I know: True Liberty in the most freeing sense. That freedom granted by the Lord Jesus Christ Who Himself said in

John 8: 36 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

What is this power that can make a person free? This same Jesus said in

John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free“

It is the power of the truth that makes one free. What is this truth…this truth…that can set one free? It is this:

1 Chronicles 29:11-13
"Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.

Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name."

This God…Who reigns over all, and has all power, and is able to give strength to all…has a Liberty plan:

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

It is this God Who has all power, and it is His Son, Who can set you free, so that you can be: Free indeed. This God and His Son are One. This is my message to Joe. This is my message to you. This is the message I received as a child.

May you enjoy this journey into Liberty as your guide, Joe, and sidekick, bear, draw the curtain back revealing an on-going power struggle that hides truth behind counterfeit; competition and abundance behind the face of monopoly and scarcity; the myth that “things” do things when actually it is particular people who do things. Some of those people are Legal Criminals who have written laws to make their Crimes Legal; thus making it necessary to understand voluntary associations as opposed to Might Makes Right, and to learn to ask, “Cui bono?”

Already we have the makings of a product, a pamphlet, a book, to begin to offer other people, common sense stuff, and there may be more of a demand that we think, and if we take another step, the book may become real.

Which program can make a book real, I looked into the MS Publisher program but found no Template to fit the goal in mind.

Here:

Instructions

I downloaded a Microsoft Word template they provided. This template took into account whether a page was a left page or a right page, it helped build the table of contents, kept the page numbers accurate, etc. In other words, the template used by any publisher in the world when they format your book.
and here:

Specs

That appears to be paths to take, to end up with a copy of a book held in the hand, a prototype, to get an idea on marketability. I can show my wife a copy. My son, my daughter, anyone.

Hey, this is a book, what do you think?

Back to here:

http://www.power-independence.com/

I can learn more in Publishing that Web Page, to add marketing tools, a picture of the book cover, etc.

What is the first Chapter?

The Banking Salesman selling Product 1 and Product 2?

An explanation of Power Political Economy called Joe's law or called by another name such as Equitabilist Political Economy?

I want to make sure you checked out the links on amazon provided by your Instructions link. That link allows you to create an author page and link back to your own website. It doesn't matter to which is used. I just want to make sure you saw the information.

I think that we can launch into which ever topic most interests you. We can always reorganize chapters if we wish, can't we?

As far as which chapter is first, I think we want to make sure it is one that draws the reader's desire to continue to read.

So, a banking scene might be interesting. Would it work to do that first and then explain political economy? Or is the groundwork of political economy necessary first? I don't know. But anyways, I think which ever inspires you the most right now should be the one worked on first.

A novel idea may work best to hook the reader and inspire further reading, so what do you think about as a short narrative of a person waking up in the morning having finally decided to go down to the new bank and see about this new loan they have heard so much about, and it can involve an exchange with the family at breakfast, concerning the trouble of so much debt, and no obvious way out, an unemployed dad, son, daughter, whatever could relate to a lot of personal situations all across this great country?

Two stories could also converge as the bank salesperson, in the next paragraph, wakes up, leaves home, on the way to  another day at the bank selling new loans.

The Title of the Chapter can also have a quote written after the title like so man books have been published with that technique.

Henry Ford's quote for the Power Independence Chapter?

I can return to that web page and look for more instruction on ways to move step by step toward book production and distribution: publishing. I do remember seeing something along the lines of Kindle sales, or "giving away" the book (which is a method of advertizing the author and thereby increasing the demand for more products), as the book takes shape those decision will have to be made and paths taken, and not necessarily only one path (one at a time, or two at a time, since this is a cooperative effort with specialization, division of labor, and economies of scale).

One person can take only one path at a time. Many people are split onto two paths in their minds, called duplicity, but that is, in reality, only one path, and not a very good one.

Like this:

Chapter 1
Power Independence

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."
Henry Ford

Fill in the story line for the customer here

Fill in the story line for the loan salesperson here

Dialogue is filled in here during sales pitch

Fill in story line for customer to sleep on it and discuss it with family

Fill in story line for loan sales person to discuss with family the day at work?

A full page brochure of Product 1 indexed to the back of the book?

A full page brochure of Product 2 indexed to the back of the book?

Waking up, the customer is now determined to take out both loans, having an idea to buy 2 electric cars and begin building a U-Haul type car battery Solar Panel Trailer business, taxi service, electric car/battery trailer sales lot, in the country, but starting out small with just 2 electric cars, taxi service, with the idea of selling one car, and beginning the work on the manufacture of a Solar Panel Electric Car Battery Power Storage Trailer for taxi fares that exceed the range of the Electric Car, and in case both Electric Cars are running all day, doing taxi work, they can haul one of the 3 trailers around while the third trailer is charging up on a quick charger at the business office.

Sales person wakes up, not expecting the customer to return, and describing how strange it is for people not to "get it".

Fill in here the dialogue of the actual sale of the loan, including a challenge by the borrower (borrowing from him or her self) concerning how the bank makes any money, and here is where the math can be also indexed to the back of the page, and the concept of having 10 businesses contracted by State governments to bid for the franchise to sell these loans in competition with Federal Reserve Monetary Products.

Fill in the last part of the chapter with business plans being worked out by the new borrower (borrowing from their own good faith and credit - at cost) and indexing plans for the new land purchase, the taxi service, the electric car lot, the Modular Green House Farming Unit to produce Algae fuel to store excess POWER, to buy up gasoline powered cars as those prices go down,  and to fuel them with the Algae Made Gasoline, the Solar Panel Array, and a back up Wind mill (these small  scale windmills are all over the place in agricultural areas nearby our city), and a small house/ business office, to keep the caretaker/worker residing comfortably (bermmed house facing south). Two water wells.

Indexing to the business profile including the loan amount, cost of investments, expected income (electricity), taxi fare income (competitive priced taxi service not having to pay the high cost of petroleum fuel), electric car sales (if a dealership franchise is worked out), battery trailer sales (resale of cars with trailers to people wanting a long range electric car set-up, as a package, then buy another electric car to replace the one sold if no dealership franchise is worked out),  sales of excess Electricity to the Power Company, or direct connecting the Power output to neighbors if the Power Company does not buy back electricity at the same price they sell it, so the "middle man" is then bypassed. Sales of Algae based fuel to gasoline powered car customers, and/or sales of tomatoes, carrots, grapes, whatever.

The numbers work out, I've tried them, but not meticulously, the "bottom line" that continues to show up is the fact that the POWER is supplied by the sun, not a Coal company, not an Oil company, not a Natural Gas company, and not an Electric company, whereby each are subsidized by tax payments, and therefore each is able to sell below cost, and thereby make any competitor unable to compete until now, because now Sun (and wind which is sun powered indirectly) POWER is economically viable even against the subsidized monopoly powers.

The end of the chapter can be a discussion between the new business borrower (borrowing from him or her self) and a relative or friend who is similarly undecided as to either Product 1 or Product 2, and the person who is just starting a new business with Product 1 and Product 2 tells the potential customer about the fact that there is no requirement to buy both products, as the Product 1 product is an advertizement tool, a marketing tool, like giving away the razor to people who are then inspired to buy the razor blades, and this is a modern marketing device, used by Skype, Avast (internet security), E-Bay, Amazon, etc. Give away the general product and sell the advanced product and stay in business because the products are sold Globally, on a large scale, having many small profits flowing into the central location from millions of customers. So the Product 1 is simply a way for someone to cut their mortgage payments in half, so why would anyone need to stress over such a simple decision?

Looks like a good outline to me. You have put alot of thought into it. A nice framework to build on. Good idea having 2 storylines merging. I like the idea of using the quote under the chapter title as well. Good idea! Just let me know what you want me to do and I will try to do it.

I have this question about this:

"Fill in the last part of the chapter with business plans being worked out by the new borrower (borrowing from their own good faith and credit - at cost)"

For Product 2, what if the person's business fails? If the person borrows on their own good faith and credit and they fail for some reason, maybe not even their own fault, how will the loan be paid back? Does it matter if the loan cannot be paid back?

Questions concerning the credit business in general aught to be explained in the book, and this device where you ask questions and I try to answer those questions offer the reader something much more than just me explaining my viewpoint, so I think we aught to get started on that Chapter, instead of me answering you right here and now.

Does this link work?

Works for me. You can use the Earth Globe up ^ in that tool bar above the reply window, which then opens a window to cut and paste the address, and then another window asks for the Label you want to put on the link.

Responding to the latest 12/14/2012 developments - following is a possible follow up page, put in Joe Quotes, after the bear introduction.

I'm Joe and discussion has been a very dull tool in my life up to points in time that inspire the effort to sharpen that tool, often times the inspiration accompanies dire straights.

Dark Horizons?

In other words a question: What brings people together so as to inspire them to be nice to each other, to cooperate, to compare notes, and to seek better from worse, and at the same time avoid harming each other?

So my power to convey meaning with English and do so accurately has been, once again, exemplified by the first sentence. I have a hard time communicating. Then the second sentence intends to show a measure of improvement (in other words), an effort to sharpen the tool. I intend to offer my end of any discussion - in dire straights - so as to compare notes, to learn, and to teach, do so fairly, equitably, nicely, politely, if possible. Often times failing miserably.

Dire Straights?

One look at the Official National Debt Clock, or the latest information reporting on the many Wars around the Globe, or information reporting mass starvation, or information reporting how, once again, and once again, and once again, the really bad guys have made torture legal. One look into the tangled web of Modern Times, even a quick look, measures up as dire straights for many people, if not just me, and if not just right now.

Coming to a theater near you?

So, there I am, blowing the whistle on bad guys moving in, one if by land and two if by sea. Yelling from the rooftops for over 2 decades. Learning along the way. Not having much to speak of in the way of actual discussion. Then as if by some mysterious force, or coincidence, a person offers actual discussion on vital topics as if someone else on this planet shares that need to know better too.

Miracles?

A small part of the entire, and ongoing, process of discussion is documented in this book, whereby discussion on vital matters happened, and is exemplified, for those who share that interest in knowing better, and those who understand the vital necessity of accurate communication in Liberty.

The stage was set for discussion.

The place of this small act in a large theater was a modern example of a Forum, such as those ancient ruins in Athens Greece landmark places built for the purpose of discussion, without the columns at the entrance, without the regal beauty of artistic architecture, but a forum none-the-less, in our time, a place called The Daily Paul.

We discussed current realities, foreboding futures, and places to go in Liberty.

I hope the example is worth the cost of reading.

I added "a question" after "In other words", and that is part of the concept of the next book: vital questions and accurate answers: a user's guide to political economy.
