On Our Central Bank, the Federal Reserve, and What It Has Done and Is Doing to Us and Our Country

I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that “all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.”  To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition.
. . . Thomas Jefferson
Opinion on the Constitutionality
of a National Bank

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

The issuing power [of money] should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it propery belongs.
. . . Thomas Jefferson

If Congress has the right to issue paper money, it was given to them to be used by [the government] and not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.
. . . President Andrew Jackson
On his 1836 veto of continued authorization  of
the Second Bank of the United States
(central bank forerunner of the Federal Reserve)

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 money and its issuance.
. . . James Madison

The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class . .  . .
Rothschild Brothers of London

Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.
. . . Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild
