Was the downfall of this great nation, United States of America, predicted in the beginning of this great nation? Below is a quote from Thomas Jefferson — author of the Declaration of Independence and the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom, third president of the United States(1801-1809), and founder of the University of Virginia. It seems to me that maybe just maybe the founding fathers knew what was in store for us as a nation. Just a thought I wanted to put out there.

“The country is headed toward a single and splendid government of an aristocracy founded on banking institutions and moneyed incorporations and if this tendency continues it will be the end of freedom and democracy, the few will be ruling…I hope we shall…crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations which dare already to challenge our government to trial and bid defiance to the laws of our country.  I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.”
