“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than outstanding armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the People of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conqueredv. ”
“To preserve [the] Independence [of the People] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between Economy and Liberty or Profusion and Servitude. If we run into such DEBT as that we must be taxed in our meats and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our creeds, as the People of England are, our People, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four,p give the earnings of fifteen of those to the Government for their debts and daily expenses and the sixteen being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow suffers” ~ Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kerchevel 1861
This is personal opinion of one individual and I’m positive more felt as he did. Why is it so hard for Americans today to see issues when one of the founding fathers basically predicted it. Politicians in the creating of this oh so freakin’ free nation were so much more outspoken and had heart to speak out. Nowadays you can’t even trust a politician to state their real names. Jefferson saw true vision of the United States of America.
This is a comment I made on the above blog. Check out the article.
Its comments like this that makes me sick to my stomach. It scares me that comments such as this one is said publicly and easily accepted by some people. Religion, sexual orientations, and all my other rights that are supposedly rightly mine should never be factors or even discussed in elections especially who will be MY President. My President should not be concerned about who I sleep with, marry, skin color, or anything of that nature. My President should be concerned with making ME wealthier, happier, secure. This is a government job that the employee is supposed to be elected by the people of the United States (sorry only the 1% people get to make the decision and I get to fill in some bubbles every couple yrs!!!) I don’t make enough money to make that decision but make enough for them to take from me and hope I survive. Equal Employment Opportunity is the law. I can sue my employer if they discriminate me but these politicians and their cronies can make outrageous comments and I should feel secure, safe and happy that these are the ones who are supposedly to be looking after me. YOU don’t even like me because of my sexual orientation, gender, skin color, and anything else I’m not but they are. Please, my momma taught me not to be so trusting of people who smile in my face but always in a position to stab me in the back. If I can sue my employer for discrimination can I sue these politicians for discrimination? I am serious so if someone knows the answer please share it with me. Time to wake up people and open your mind and not just your eyes. No capital without our labor (so they say).
