"History records that the money changers have used
every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible
to maintain their control over governments
by controlling the money and its issuance."
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
Misattributed to Madison. The quote is actually from a note on page 70-71 of Olive Cushing Dwinell's 'The Story of Our Money.' Apparently the note refers to a quote from Alexander Hamilton in defense of his Banking Bill. The note appears under the Hamilton quote and above the Madison quote. It was an editor's error.
