What almost nobody seems to realize is that our continued financial crises are all the results of the abandoning of sound financial principles such as the gold standard, and establishing a private central bank (the Federal Reserve System), and listening to "economic experts". How can it be that our economy is going down the tubes? After all, our economy has been controlled by "experts".
Well, I'll tell you the truth: we have all been swindled for almost a hundred years. The experts are nothing by mouthpieces for criminal bankers who have stolen our wealth. They have done this by creating a private central bank, which created currency out of nothing, and earned interest for doing this from the treasury bonds they purchased with their FRNs.
It was our politicians who did this to us in 1913, in complete disregard for the Constitution which tasks them with coining money out of gold and silver. These same politicians then passed the legal tender laws, forcing us to use FRNs for all debts public and private, rather than gold and silver coin which the Constitution required.
Then in 1933, these same criminals stole our gold. And in 1965, they stopped using silver in our minor coins. Then in 1971, the connection between gold and the "dollar" (actually the paper FRN which represents the dollar) was severed. Now, there was no restriction on how many FRNs could be printed, and inflation really took off.
Today, not content with how much they steal from us with inflation, our criminal politicians are now making massive gifts to their friends of billions of "dollars", supposedly to forestall an economic meltdown which they have caused.
Yes, people have a huge amount of currency to spend, but what is it worth? Look what it costs to buy a cup of coffee. Where has the purchasing power of the "dollar" gone? It has been stolen from us by our criminal politicians and their banker friends. And this theft is not going to end soon. The American people are too stupid to understand what has been, and is being done to them. They continue to elect the same criminals who are beholden to the same interests.
