“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.” -Thomas Jefferson
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” -Arthur Schopenhauer.
These two quotes seem alarming on the money (no pun intended) to today’s situation. As you know I did a piece earlier about my dream visit from Mr. Jefferson and I will confess up front that I am doing this article to show Mr. Jefferson that indeed I will act.
The point is made better by Mr. Jefferson than by me or quite frankly, all the current pundits combined. Banks are more dangerous to us than any army! That is revolutionary speech even by today’s standards. “Ever allow private banks to control their currency” translates to the current day Fed, a privately owned corporation that issues the currency of the US. Whoops, we kinda screwed that one up.
They would control our currency by inflation and deflation. Huh? Yep! Banks will deprive people of their private property until their children wake-up homeless! We are experiencing the highest rate for foreclosures in US history and at the same time the values of our private properties has been deflated on average 34 % in the last eighteen months!
I ask you two questions, Mr. Jefferson. First, how the hell could you know all this 234 years ago? Secondly, if you knew this, you should also know the solution to correct this problem. Come back and visit me with an answer. After all, it is about action, not words, right?
