The economic events of the last couple days should be understood by every American. Our money, our liberties and our well being are all at stake. Unfortunately, our major media outlets are not reporting both sides of the story. Recent polls have shown the vast majority of Americas are against bailing out Wall Street, but to listen to most commentators this bail-out "must be done". The standard reasons are being shouted from every pundit, "if they don't bail them out it will lead to a greater collapse, that will cause more harm." No one seems to know where they are getting the Trillions of dollars they are committing, and no one seems to care. I bet if people understood that the money comes from the purchasing power of our dollars, they would make it a point of becoming more informed. And if most realized that the money they are giving up through inflation, goes directly to the pockets of the bankers that caused the problem, there would be revolution. We are seeing the largest heist in the history of the world, and being told that giving up this money is in our best interest. Only a knowlagable citizenry is capable of ending this scam. It's a shame that we have been through this before in our history and have been warned. Do yourself and your family a favor and learn about fractional-reserve banking, and the Federal Reserve System. FYI, the Federal Reserve is the 4th Central bank the US has had, all the previous ones were disbanded. We as a people need to get informed or we will suffer from our own ignorance. Here are some quotes that have come to mind in the last few days.
"I have faith in the people...The danger is, in their being misled. Let them know the truth and the country is safe."
- A. Lincoln
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be. . . . The people cannot be safe without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe."
“If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency... the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."
- Henry Ford
"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors"
“A Nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”
- Edward R. Murrow
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
