Some Americans have forgotten their history, and it is because of this, that corruption and robbery have run rampant through our nation.
It is time that we awaken from our slumber, and stand up and save what is left of this nation.
An educated people are a free people, and that is what this blog's intention is, to re-educate Americans to the truths that our founder's knew, the ones that government schools so carefully forget to teach you.
Thomas Jefferson said "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."
The Federal Reserve is just such a banking institution.
Before it was created, nearly 100 years ago, the United States congress was in charge of coining and regulating the currency, this is what the Constitution demanded. A central bank was unconstitutional, because in short, it robbed the people.
Before the Fed's existence, congress could create money without interest being charged.
Today, the Federal Reserve charges interest for the money that they create for our government's use. ALL of your federal income tax goes to pay that interest. And when there is interest charged on money, there is NO WAY to pay it back, because there will NEVER be enough money in circulation to pay it off. NEVER.
Due to fractional reserve banking, there is not enough cash in the world to back up all the bank deposits either since so much is now done electronically, and because they print more with nothing backing it, our dollar loses its buying power.
When the dollar loses value, all those that are saving are robbed. When the dollar loses its buying power, food costs more, gas costs more, so ALL the people are robbed.
When the Fed gets together to ask congress to give them more power, the power to have all American Taxpayers take on the debt load of all the bad loans and poor investments due to the banking and housing industry greed, they rob all of us.
Those of us who have lived within our means, which is a few, will now share the burden that should have been the consequences of Big Business plundering us, but instead, they are asking to plunder us more, so that they can go on with business as usual.
Like Thomas Jefferson, "I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution - taking from the federal government their power of borrowing."
Andrew Jackson, who won on the campaign slogan Jackson and NO BANK said, "It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners... is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? ... Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence... would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy."
Andrew Jackson was successful in destroying the Central Bank, but once he was gone, the once again took little steps back into existence, as Americans forgot their own history, and how the central banks were the destruction of liberty the world over.
Two weeks before president Garfield was assassinated he said, "Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce...and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." If you haven't figured it out yet, it is the Federal Reserve that is responsible for this monetary crisis, and it is deliberate. They are consolidating power, the big powers eating the little powers, and what junk they took on, they are putting on your back as their slave.
The Federal Reserve, is unconstitutional. It is central banks that caused the first American Revolution, when the colonists refused to be taxed for the failing banking policies of the European Central bankers. They understood their enemy, and they choose liberty, will we?
Any congressmen or senator that votes for these bailouts is committing treason against our nation. They would be voting to further destroy our true system of government and push us towards more socialism and communism. If they were for The People, they would stand up and declare NO they will not enslave this people, and then they would take back their right to control and issue the money, and not allow the Central Bank to continue to create the inflation and depression in our nation!
And when you see how many agree to do this to you, and shred the few fibers of liberty that remain, you will see how many no longer represent you! It is my hope, that enough people will become informed, that they will realize what is being perpetuated on them, that it is criminal behavior, and that we can yet have a bloodless revolution, by voting them all out!
Once liberty is lost, it will take blood to bring it back. My ancestors spilled their blood for this nation, and to maintain liberty here. Let it not be said that it was all in vain. Let this generation be the generation that stands up to tyrants and says, no more, we will have liberty!
