“I sincerely believe 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.”

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.”

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

Thomas Jefferson

Any more?

"[A central bank is] a curse to a republic; inasmuch as it is calculated to raise around the administration a moneyed aristocracy dangerous to the liberties of the country."

"Recent events have proved that the paper-money system of this country may be used as an engine to undermine your free institutions, and that those who desire to engross all power in the hands of the few and to govern by corruption or force are aware of its power and prepared to employ it. Your banks now furnish your only circulating medium, and money is plenty or scarce according to the quantity of notes issued by them."
- Farewell Address, 3/4/1837

"You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the grace of the Eternal God, will rout you out."

“Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.”

Andrew Jackson"

He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.
Thomas Jefferson

If you would know the value of money, go try to borrow some; for he that goes a-borrowing goes a-sorrowing.
Benjamin Franklin
(Like I've been saying. It's Credit that Killed the Beast.)

Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth.
George Washington

The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.

"From the words of Old Hickory Himself - Andrew Jackson

No American should have to live under the oppression of a sprawling oversized central government; or suffer the loss of personal autonomy and liberties to perfunctory bureaucrats; or endure the invasion of privacy by officious functionaries; or struggle through a life trying to stay ahead of inflation; or endure the nightmare of over regulation and criminalization; or tolerate mass corruption and fraud by self serving elected officials; or to grind out a living only to be ravaged by labor-wage taxes while Federal Reserve Bankers get rich off baseless currency; or die fighting in some needless war.

The more things change the more they stay the same, 170 years later."

How well the founding fathers knew of the gravity of the issues facing us today:

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people every 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."

"I did not have sex with that woman" Bill Clinton, under oath... On public television.. Anybody else would have gone to jail. 'Teflon Bill' slimed his way out of another indictment.

Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so.
