Lay the Fed to rest

Dear Editor:

The EU may have already gone kaput if our Federal Reserve had not emailed European banks $3 trillion, almost interest free. That’s mucho dinero, in the same league with our gross national product, dwarfing the paltry amount supposedly doled out to relieve Main Street. Three trillion in European computers enables them to loan out oodles more, at much higher interest rates, while the value of your dollar shrinks, year after year. This is even more ludicrous considering the deed was done, in secret, by a cartel of private bankers, mostly European.

How can a massive transfer of wealth slip by almost unnoticed? The sad, sad truth is that for nearly a hundred years the Fed has raped America while democracy never even peeked into their books. Meanwhile, a former head of the New York Fed is now our secretary of the treasury. In other words, America’s mortal enemy controls our finances.

Little Timothy Geithner – our mortal enemy? Don’t believe me, believe Thomas Jefferson: “The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

Ron Paul initiated the first ever, partial, audit of the Fed, disclosing the three trillion-plus corruption on a scale that demands a national dialogue, if not revolution. Ron Paul has won debate after debate, straw poll after straw poll and is raising record amounts of cash. He originated the tea party and is the only candidate who polls even with Obama. “End the Fed” signs are spreading like dandelions. Yet, in a stunning display of mind control, Paul’s candidacy and even more alarming, his message, are being essentially ignored and discredited by the mass media.

Even so, this is not rocket science and America is beginning to grok the simple truth. We can end the Fed and print our own greenbacks, as did Lincoln, thus never paying interest on government bonds. Astonishingly, we need not be burdened, and then destroyed, by national debt. And, as an extra special added bonus, we would no longer be the puppets of “one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known.” – Congressman Louis McFadden, chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency, 1932.
