It has been 100 years since the Federal Reserve came into being. It started as a conspiracy. It has ended up creating impossible debt for the American people while tremendous wealth and power was transferred to the banks who own it. Congress relinquished its responsibility to the private Federal Reserve (which is neither Federal nor a Reserve) ostensibly to lessen the boom and bust cycles in the economy. Instead, it has pushed and funded endless war (profitable for them), the boom of the Roaring ’20s, the bust of the Great Depression and currently the largest, longest ‘recession’ our country has known.
Another reason commonly stated to justify the Fed is that they prevent Congress, ignorant of economic matters, from spending the country into inflationary oblivion. In a way, that has still happened. The only difference is the money is not pure fiat. It is DEBT money. That means it must all be paid back with interest. That’s impossible since we the taxpayers have no printing press. Only the Fed gets to counterfeit and it’s legal because, well, they’re the Fed!
In order to pay back this artificial debt, the Fed helped create the income tax. Innocuous at first; it has now become a pernicious financial tyranny. The banks also made sure we got rid of the gold standard. They made sure silver, ‘real’ money, was driven from the economy. These same banks now control precious metals through shorting, collusion and corruption while the excess money they are printing ‘to help the economy’ helps nobody but the rich. That money goes into yet a new bubble: The stock market, which benefits mostly those who own most of the market already: the 1/10th of 1 percent.
As money concentrates into the hands for an elite at the very top, they will gain more power at the expense of the rest of us. We get our liberties stripped away. They certainly don’t want us armed and resisting. They want us working harder to pay more taxes to them as they send jobs overseas to countries such as China. In short, they have taken over the Republic by hijacking our money. Instead of green backs we have gangrene. That leads us to two choices:
1. Cut them off
It’s time to end the Fed!
