"A question arises whether all the powers of government, legislative, executive, and judicial, shall be left in this body? I think a people cannot be long free, nor ever happy, whose government is in one Assembly."
John Adams
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President

Adam's thoughts of a people not remaining free when the body politic becomes a statist government assembly has been borne out in the denigration of the nation he helped bring about.

    "Give me control of a nation's currency, and I care not who makes the laws.' -- Rothschild

    When all the powers of government are funded by private central bankers, their dependence makes slaves of us all.

    Archer, on that note, you are so right. The body politic (legislative, executive, judicial, MSM, corporate - by example 501 (c) (3) organizations) being a single / statist assembly is/are the mere arbiter puppet(s) of the master puppettier banker(s).
