"And the men who loan money to governments, so called, for the purpose
of enabling the latter to rob, enslave, and murder their people,
are among the greatest villains that the world has ever seen.
And they as much deserve to be hunted and killed
(if they cannot otherwise be got rid of)
as any slave traders, robbers, or pirates that ever lived."
by:
Lysander Spooner
(1808-1887) Political theorist, activist, abolitionist

    I WISH U HAD A CATEGORY ON EVOLUTION. AN M.D. SAID EVOL'N COULDN'T HAVE OCCURRED, BUT HE FORCES HIMSELF TO BELIEVE IT; OTHERWISE HE'D HAVE TO BELIEVE IN GOD. I CAN'T FIND THAT QUOT'N. KEEP UP THE EXCELL. WORK

    WOW ! ! ! If I could rate this with an innumerable amount of stars, a countless number of times, it would not do it justice. Naming that elite group of international bankers with such accurate titles (thieves, murderers, malefactors of all types, etc.), with an appropriate action at justice equal to their activities, is seldom heard stated so eloquently and clearly.

    The latter, being the so called government, are the ones doing the robbing, enslaving and murdering. The money lenders are willing and concious enablers and therefore the greater villians.

    They have to lend that money and keep the wars going to make it easier to enslave the people.

    An inconvenient truth. Spooner nails it. Of course, over 150 years have passed and the ignorance of the masses continues to be promoted and exploited.

    I would consider this anti-citizen agenda to be an act of treason. From the bureaucrat tax agent who participates by "just doing his job" right up the the the people who issue the counterfet script. Criminals all.
