Liberty and Freedom
I was reading the Contract from America and wondering why there is no mention of ending the FED to take away control of our money from private bankers? In my opinion that is the source of power which is being used to control the media and our government. As long as that power source is in place we are just spitting into the wind if we expect to stop the drain of freedom.
We must have transparency at the Federal Reserve so we can see who the criminals are and run them through the justice system. Then we should End the Fed and return the issuing of currency and credit back to the people as the constitution states it should be. Without sound money we will never return to a prosperous nation.
Gary, I thought by now there would be more comments on your post................They have to be "educated" that's not easy on this site.............You show them documents, videos, point out what's right in front of them, warn them about upcoming bills, and they still don't understand..............Go figure!
They make fun of someones suit size, age, and say that the Old man in the basement has egg on his face, etc.............
Just like the typical American, "They don't look at the content of their caracter " but the things that don't matter at all !
Welcome to the NWO, CFR, Bilderberg, etc.
I wonder how many in he SW Michigan Patriots site have looked at the You-Tube video "The Money Masters"? Whatever the percent of accuracy of this video, It brought my attention to the FED. Having private bankers in charge of our money is like having a fox guard the hen house. That is unbelievable power in the hands of a few people not in our elected government and in some cases not even citizens of our country. If that isn't eliminated first, the battle for our freedoms is as good as lost, just a matter of time. Elimination of the FED should be a priority of this organization and yet it is not even in the contract.
Does the John Birch Society advocate ending the Fed?
If that question is to me, I don't know what the John Birch Society advocates. I was stating my opinion based on finding out what the FED is about.
Scott, put your question in the address bar and hit enter and you can find out !
I am very disappointed in the lack of reply to the content of my post. Instead I get a post from a person who laments the same and another who wants to know if my view is shared by the John Birch Society. Neither comment actually discusses my post.
Sorry Brett, your post did address the content of my post.
"Let me issue and control a nation's money, and I care not who writes the laws."
Mayer Amschel Rothschild
"The eyes of our citizens are not sufficiently open to the true cause of our distress.
They ascribe them to everything, but their true cause, the BANKING SYSTEM; a system, which, if it could do good in any form, is yet so certain of LEADING TO ABUSE, as to be utterly incompatible with the public safety and prosperity.
I sincerely believe that banking establishments are MORE DANGEROUS than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but SWINDLING FUTURITY on a large scale."
It is a fact that money controls everything and that as a nation we have no money only debt. In agreement with you lets look closely at how the system works outside the banking industry at the most local levels. Village and townships receive nearly all of their funding from local taxes, mostly property taxes. These taxes are broken into milages which are allocated to various sources, schools, police, fire, local services. When these municipalities overspend, they raise taxes or cut services, but there is a grwing use of alternative sources of money known as federal/ state grants. This money in not simply given, but must be applied for.. requested to say the least. So without much thought politicians, especially those who love to spend , apply for this "free" money. Sadly there is no such thing. A great example would be a boat launch parking lot here in my Town of New Buffalo.
Several years ago some politician took the advice of the parks superintendent and requested a grant fron the US dept of Agriculture for funds to pave the boat launch parking lot. I believe it was about 50,000 at the time.
Before the paving took place the lot was the exclusive property of the City of New Buffalo. The city utilized this lot for boat launchings and overflow beach parking and charged a fee for both.
After the paving took place the city attempted to do what it had done for years , but the fed stepped in and told the city that it could now only be used as a boat launch and only for parking of the vehicles from which boats were towed in and that the city could no longer charge. Funny how that "grant" affected the status of that property.
All grants have strings attached, the provider of this money set the rules as does the provider of the money congress spends. The creation of fiat money by a private cartel was a problem with the founders and so they ended the Charter of the First Bank of the United States. Andrew Jackson was another , who knew what a central bank was doing to the nation and fought tooth and nail to kill the Second Bank and proudly proclaims this on his tombstone, but the Creature from Jekyll Island known as the federal reserve has become the monstrosity swallowing up this nation and its resources. To the bankers, third time's a charm.
At another local level, Berrien County officials look at federal grants as a pool of money and apply and request outside money quite frequently, The purchase of the latest Sheriff's armoured vehicle came mostly from federal funds (DHS) The latest boat (whirlpool and other grants) and yet the Sheriff told me he is not beholding to anyone.. IS that like congress and the administration is not beholding to the fed? BTW Gary, you were attacked because of Ron Paul.. we all are getting to know how he feels and what he has dealt with for 30 years.
Thanks Janet, it does look like the John Birch Society does advocate ending the Fed. This is why I'm confused why people that are, I'll say diehard Ron Paul supporters (and that's fine, we all have our people we like) are involved with the Tea Party. I just figured that there is already a group out there that supports a good portion of the Ron Paul agenda. Why not latch on to them?
Sorry Gary I didn't reply directly to your comment. The reason why I'm reluctant is that if I disagree with any of the Ron Paul supporters I will get drowned out with sometimes, not always, distasteful comments. What I have found is that if I disagree (and I'm not saying I disagree on this issue) that I am labeled a war mongering neo-con.
I'm not sure ending the Fed is the right thing to do, but there definitively needs to be more transparency.
That's great! Here's my question. (Sorry this is off subject from the Fed now). If I do not support Ron Paul is there room in the TEA Party for me?
