"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd President
What most people don't understand is that the above quote by Jefferson is exactly what is happening today. The Federal Reserve (A cabal in that it's a private bank that works with our governement against you) prints money out of thin air and sells it to our government with interest. If the government made it's own money (backed by gold or silver to prevent massive inflation) we wouldnt' have to pay a national debt to a private bank called the federal reserve.
As it is the federal reserve is our nations master. the national debt can never be payed back since they only print the money to lend and not to pay back. It is good to note that all your federal income tax dollars are payments on interest on the national debt. Not one cent for services.
