"I am afraid that the ordinary citizen
will not like to be told that the banks
can and do create and destroy money.
And they who control the credit of a nation
direct the policy of governments, and
hold in the hollow of their hands
the destiny of the people."
by:
Reginald McKenna
(1863-1943) British Secretary to the Treasury (1903), President of the Board of Education (1907–08) First Lord of the Admiralty (1908–1911), Home Secretary (1911–1915) and Chancellor of the Exchequer (1915–1916), and Chairman of the Midland Bank (1918)

    The ramifications of "state owned" currency should scare the hell out of everybody. We need money...not paper currency.

    It is no accident -- and this trick has been perfected and 'legalized.' This indisputable fact will not be addressed by any party man because it will mean the end to his party. But it is time for the truth to be laid out, and all the false theocracies must fall else we bind ourselves to a lie and accept our fate as slaves forever...
