Quotations from the above linked Money Masters site:

Quote:

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, 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
Issuing power? You mean they kind of like create it? So money does grow on trees!

Quote:

History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance. -James Madison
Hey Madison, are you some kind of conspiracy theorist? Don't you know that the US State Dep't says that 'most' conspiracy theories aren't true?

Quote:

If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations. -Andrew Jackson
Are you kidding me Mr. Jackson? Then why did 3 guys in 1913 sell the show away?

Quote:

The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. -Abraham Lincoln
What dope are you smoking Lincoln? It's a dog eat dog world out there, and it should be - just ask Nomad.
