This is my personal blog.
“A man who reads nothing at all is better educated than a man who reads nothing but newspapers.”
- Ichabod Crane, Sleepy Hollow, “The Midnight Ride”
“The struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.”
- Ronald Reagan, speech for National Association of Evangelicals, March 8, 1983
“I sincerely believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.”
- Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President
“The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That Board administers the finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. The system is Private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money”
- Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., 1923
“Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.”
- James A. Garfield, President of the United States
“Should government refrain from regulation, the worthlessness of the money becomes apparent and the fraud can no longer be concealed.”
- British Lord John Maynard Keynes in his book “THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE PEACE” (1920).
“But if in the pursuit of the means we should unfortunately stumble again on unfunded paper money or any similar species of fraud, we shall assuredly give a fatal stab to our national credit in its infancy. Paper money will invariably operate in the body of politics as spirit liquors on the human body. They prey on the vitals and ultimately destroy them. Paper money has had the effect in your state that it will ever have, to ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open the door to every species of fraud and injustice.”
- George Washington in a letter to Jabez Bowen, Rhode Island, Jan. 9, 1787
