Listen to Thomas Jefferson

An interesting quote by Thomas Jefferson over two hundred years ago. Those who say that we need to "change" what the founding fathers incorporated into this great nation just need to look at what they said. They were brilliant and God inspired men. And now let Thomas Jefferson speak for himself:

"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. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

Thomas Jefferson, Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin (1802)
3rd president of US (1743 - 1826)

Isn't that amazing?
