Reginald McKenna (1864-1943)

I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told the banks can and do create money. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hand the destiny of the people.

Henry Ford (1863-1947)

It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.

Louis McFadden (1876-1936)

The Federal Reserve banks are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. There is not a man within the sound of my voice who does not know that this nation is run by the international bankers.

Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)

When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes… Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.

Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.

Lysander Spooner (1808-1887)

If taxation without consent is not robbery, then any band of robbers have only to declare themselves a government, and all their robberies are legalized.
