Give a Man A Gun, and He Can Rob A Bank – Give A Man A Bank, and He Can Rob the World. – Anonymous
[The] Bank of the United States… is one of the most deadly hostility existing, against the principles and form of our Constitution… An institution like this, penetrating by its branches every part of the Union, acting by command and in phalanx, may, in a critical moment, upset the government. I deem no government safe which is under the vassalage of any self-constituted authorities, or any other authority than that of the nation, or its regular functionaries. What an obstruction could not this bank of the United States, with all its branch banks, be in time of war! It might dictate to us the peace we should accept, or withdraw its aids. Ought we then to give further growth to an institution so powerful, so hostile? – Thomas Jefferson
You shall not charge interest on loans to your brother, interest on money, interest on food, interest on anything that is lent for interest. You may charge a foreigner interest, but you may not charge your brother interest, that the Lord your God may bless you in all that you undertake in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. – Deuteronomy 23:19-20
Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws. –Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.

Allowing men to control the credit of a nation and, by the use of the American military, control worldwide banking and financial systems is reckless endangerment and psychologically irrational.
One can say without exaggeration that inflation is an indispensable means of militarism. Without it, the repercussions of war on welfare become obvious much more quickly and penetratingly; war weariness would set in much earlier. –Ludwig Von Mises –
Those who create and issue the money and credit direct the policies of government and hold in their hands the destiny of the people.- Reginald McKenna President of the Midlands Bank of England
Cultivators of the Earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bonds. Thomas Jefferson
