Does the proposition sound absurd to you? It does to me. But, it happens everyday, all over the world.
“You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.”
–Andrew Jackson, 1828 (to a group of investment bankers trying to persuade him to renew their charter)
In fact, the American revolution came about precisely because the colonies witnessed how the Bank of England’s unwarranted demands on them immediately destroyed their prosperity.
“[The Colonists] would have gladly borne the little tax on tea and other matters, if it had not been that they took from us our money — which created great unemployment and dissatisfaction. Within a year, the poor houses were filled. The hungry and homeless walked the streets everywhere.”
“[T]he inability of the Colonists to get the power to issue their own money, permanently out of the hands of King George III and the international bankers, was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War.”
And here we are, over 200 years later, ruled by a man who goes by the same name and bankers that play the same game. How did this happen? Didn’t history teach us ANYTHING?
If the American People ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around (the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered . . .
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a moneyed aristocracy that has set the government in defiance.
And indeed, that’s exactly what happened. Lend, inflate, deflate, repossess. Lend, inflate, deflate, repossess. And so on, and so forth until all our essential industries became theirs (steel, wheat, dairy, energy, telecommunications, publishing, defense, healthcare, insurance), along with most of our land.
They invaded and corrupted our institutions, erasing any trace of our past that might awaken us to the calamity of our condition and molded our minds to suit the roles they set out for us.
So, what do we do?
The issuing power should be taken from the banks, and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. –Thomas Jefferson
But, freedom has a price.
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
Are you willing to sacrifice to win back your freedom?
“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
I know many of you, like me, want to avoid armed struggle, if at all possible (especially since we’re the ones who are unarmed!).
Our monetary system is broken and it will not fix itself. If we don’t act now, they will extinguish what’s left of our freedom.
