A Voice from the Past

 

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

 

Thomas Jefferson

1802
