“In a letter to President Thomas Jefferson in 1787, John Adams wrote, “All the Perplexities, Confusion and Distress in America, arise not from defects in the Constitution or Confederation, nor from a want of Honor or Virtue, so much as from downright Ignorance of the Nature of Coin, Credit and Circulation.” Thomas Jefferson would later write, “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.” Jefferson would also warn, “We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion [excess] and servitude.”
“Today, our nation has sunk into insolvency, and a serious financial day of reckoning is fast approaching. The governing class in Washington D.C., (in both parties) continues to load us and our posterity with perpetual debt and servitude. Most Americans are “distressed,” “perplexed,” and “confused” because they have not been taught sound money principles or the evils of central banking.”
“In 1910, a nefarious cabal of Wall Street and international bankers conspired to create the Federal Reserve System, which became our nation’s central bank in 1913. Our Founding Fathers were well acquainted with the evils of central banking (beginning with the Bank of England in 1694), and they diligently sought to enshrine hard money principles into our Constitution.”
Our present banking system was conceived in fraud and deceit by our modern money changers and corrupt politicians. Over 200 years ago James Madison wrote, “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.”
When our Lord saw the money changers in the temple, He drove them out with the force of a whip–on at least THREE separate occasions. Jesus knew how evil the money changers were, and He knew what He had to do about them–and He did it.
The only congressman or presidential candidate (from either major party) in modern memory who consistently spoke out against the money changers wasCongressman Ron Paul (R-TX). For decades he tried to convince the American people that it was essential to our national survival that they demand that their congressmen and senators end the Fed. Very few paid him any heed, and now I doubt that there is any remedy.
