The author explains how and why our elected officials have been operating a giant scam, called the Ultimate Scam, on us. These officials have been quietly drawing off some of our wealth to finance various governmental projects. What they are doing is neither secret nor illegal. The officials just don't advertise that they have created an "invisible" tax that is automatically collected. This tax is levied on money that has been accumulated during a lifetime of earning, saving and investing. The operation of the scam has helped to create a dangerously high rate of currency inflation in this country.
