"The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters, had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created great unemployment and dissatisfaction. Within a year, the poor houses were filled. The hungry and homeless walked the streets everywhere. The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the International Bankers was probably the Prime reason for the Revolutionary War."
Benjamin Franklin
(1706-1790) US Founding Father
as quoted from his autobiography

Reader comments about this quote:
Debt-free money must return to America and used properly so as to not cause inflation nor deprive us of much needed benefit that all can use, that being infrastructure...of course the parasitic investing rich would rather "loan" money they have not properly earned, often by being part of the banking cartel that counterfeits all our money in the first place. America is and has been since Hamilton's time, but a monetary colony for the bankers of Europe, whose branch office in America is the federal reserve of NYC that Hamilton started himself as their agent and our secretary of the treasury...it must end in our generation and show the world that debt-based money is the most abusive form of human slavery outside of chattel slavery or war, which also parasitically abuses the general public maximally.

    The banking system, as it is currently constituted, is patently unconstitutional in character.

    If Mr. Franklin were still with us, he would counsel revolution.

    The " House of Bondage " returns ! Sherman's ride, ruthless and arrogant oppression at the point of a gun. This act of War was not for Liberty's sake, but the opposite ! " Oppression without a cause." The sanctuary of Liberty, plundered by Corrupt money lenders, preying upon the poor and needy once disarmed. Ignoring the natural law of morality, its THIRTEEN tenets to govern lending practices among a nations own children. Chophshiy Liberty is financial liberty, Freedom from Bondage and tax, at your pleasure. Three Liberties and Thirteen moral guide lines to adhere to, in maintaining of said Sate of Liberty. Shall not a jealous God visit for such oppression imposed upon his children ? Is there no fear of God before the lenders eyes ? Shall he not gather the nations ? Or, Shall not Revolution rise again, for the treasonous acts committed by Congress and the IRS. Treason is a hanging offense.

    In dealing with Constitutional money, Utah is the only State that has complied with Article I Section 10 in making gold and silver money. Using debt for money can ultimately only end in a financial melt down; and, is still how a few control and keep down the many.
