"There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence. I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men and become the instruments of their own undoing."
Maybe we, Americans, should take a cue from Representative Joe Wilson. We need to speak out against our government. There is something clearly wrong in the country. The monetary system is by far the greatest fraud perpetrated upon the American people in history. As evidenced by this video:
We need to stand up and demand change. A reform of the monetary system could make it possible for everyone to have a chance in life. It could end our national debt. It could potentially end poverty in the United States (without paying taxes for welfare). It could also end the needs for 40% tax rates. No longer would we have to lose our wealth through both taxes and inflation. Let's return to the sound money of the Constitution.
There is a reason the Founding Fathers set up our money system the way they did.
Here is where it says in the Constitution that the powers the Federal Reserve exercises are unconstitutional and downright illegal:
Article 1. Section. 8. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
- To borrow Money on the credit of the United States; (Congress does this, but so does the Federal Reserve...a PRIVATE banking institution)
- To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures; (Congress does not have the power to coin our money anymore...The Federal Reserve does...a PRIVATE banking institution, and they charge us interest to use our OWN money!!!)
- To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years; (How long have we been in Afghanistan and Iraq? 6 years going on 7? Wow!!)
Article 1. Section . 9. No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time. (First of all, The Federal Reserve has NEVER been audited. The Federal Reserve, on a daily basis, prints and distributes U.S. dollars all over the world. In one instance, detailed by the video below, The Federal Rerserve gave $3,000 dollars for every man, woman, and child in New Zealand to the Central Bank of New Zealand.)
Article 1. Section 10. No State Shall...coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make anything but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.... (Granted, carrying gold and silver is a hassle, but a dollar bill can easily be back by gold or silver. President Kennedy tried it in 1963, check out executive order 11110, dollar bills today are not backed by anything, they are debt created out of thin air by a bank, watch the video if you do not understand this.)
Our Founding Fathers warned us about always protecting the control of our money. They hated central banking with a passion and feared it. Were their fears founded? Did they have a reason to hate the banks? I think so. As evidence I give you these quotes to consider:
"And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale."
"The refusal of King George III to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution."
"The bold effort the present (central) bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it."
"If Congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given to be used by themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations."
"Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States"
-Sen. Barry Goldwater (Rep. AR)
"This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson} signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized....the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill."
-Congressman Charles A. Lingbergh Sr., 1913
"We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it".
-Congressman Louis T. McFadden, 1932
"We are completely dependent on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.... It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon."
-Robert A. Hamphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank
"The regional Federal Reserve banks are not government agencies. ...but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations."
-Lewis vs. United States, 680 F. 2nd 1239 9th Circuit 1982
