"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." -- Thomas Jefferson -- They DID allow it! And, it IS happening - just like Thomas Jefferson said. In 1913 the American People were finally tricked into allowing the Creation of The FED. It has the ability to CREATE Money, which it does, and it has ROBBED us every day since. It does this in many ways, and one of them is through INFLATION. We have come to accept this as "the natural way of things". But, it is NOT that at all. It is often called "The Hidden Tax" It is the DILUTION of OUR money by their creation of MORE Money - out of thin air. Every bit WE lose is gained by THEM! (do you have ANY idea who "them" is?).
