Andrew Jackson, 1828 (to a group of investment bankers trying to persuade him to renew their central bank charter)
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs."
The federal reserve is no more federal than any other private business. Check any large phone book and see where it's listed. Not under any government list. They run the biggest counterfeit operation in history. Check this link for more quotes about this system of evil.
Today, the Federal Reserve is engaged in an eerily similar operation, counterfeiting trillions of dollars in U.S. bank notes and flooding the U.S. money supply with money created from nothing. The result, of course, is the same as was intended by Operation Bernhardt in 1942: The economic destruction of the target nation. Only this time, the target is the United States of America.
