"I sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing power of money are more dangerous to Liberty than standing armies", Thomas Jefferson. He also wrote "Paper is Poverty...it is only the ghost of money and not money itself".
Article 1, Section 8- The Congress shall have Power To.......Coin Money, regulate the

On Jekyll Island, off of Georgia's Coast, where the very wealthy and powerful business tycoons and bankers gathered over a period of months to hammer out a corporation to capture the wealth of these United States, this is the Fed ( as we call it today). They coerced their Democratic cronies in the House of Representatives and the Senate to vote on this act and make it law during the beginning of congress's Christmas Break, 1913. With enough members of the Senate gone the act carried both houses (the Senate nays and the absentees would have stopped the act- go look at the numbers). It was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson.

We are no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men".
You can do something about it- start with knowledge- spend one night a week looking things up- cross referencing the information and come to a knowledgeable conclusion then act on that conclusion and stand against evil. Start with Wikipedia- then watch the late Aaron Russo's U Tube Documentary- "America- Freedom to Fascism"- it is about 2 hours long but it is great.
