"A great industrial Nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our
system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation and all our
activities are in the hands of a few men. ...

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely
controlled and dominated Governments in the world - no longer a
Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and
vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of
small groups of dominant men".

(Just before he died, Wilson is reported to have stated to friends that
he had been "deceived" and that "I have betrayed my Country". He
referred to the Federal Reserve Act passed during his Presidency.)
Woodrow Wilson
(1856-1924) 28th US President
taken from an essay by Sheldon Emry, Billions for the Bankers, Debt for the People

    the key words in the above quote are "reported to have stated", This could be an 'engineered' quote. So, essentialy it means nothing.

    The first paragraph of the quote is found in Woodrow Wilson's book written in 1913, The New Freedom: A Call For the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People, chapter 8. The 2nd paragraph is found in chapter 9: http://books.google.com/books?id=fiESAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA201 We have not yet found a confirmed source for the "I have betrayed my country" quote -- that is why it is in parenthesis with a note.
