The Founders of the United State of America and its Constitution and Bill of Rights were aware of the dangers of private bankers and financial institutions controlling America’s currency, which in turn would put the United States Government literally in its control.
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies … If the American People ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency … The banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.– Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
We can thank the administration of Woodrow Wilson for signing bills that allowed this to happen and members of Congress during that period of our history as well. Later Woodrow Wilson confessed that he had made a serious mistake by signing the legislature that would create and turn the power of currency over to a private institution secretly run by the financial cartel of the time, thus creating the Federal Reserve System that would be detrimental to the United States of America and its people:
The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.… A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men … We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world – no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.
President Franklin D. Rooseveltfurther cemented the unconstitutional process with his “New Deal” program that included the Gold Bullion mandate. Presidents and members of Congress that followed continued the dangerous charade – a secretive institution that controlled the currency and the economic stability of the United States.
It is indeed a travesty that politicians refuse to abide by constitutional law and use trickery in order to get votes and pay attention to special interests rather than the welfare of the People of the United States as a whole. Yet, these abused powers and acts that are detrimental to our democratic republic can only be gained because the American voter chooses their candidates through false information because they do not perform their homework on the important subject matter as elections.
