That's nice. The Eisenhower clip was a good touch. And short and to the point.
Wilson was another president that became keenly aware of what was going on in Washington before he left, when the Federal Reserve was just coming into
power. Both of these men, and Washington and Jefferson at least too, left behind warnings of just how disastrously this country could become
corrupted with an apathetic and lied-to public. Jefferson said a man who didn't read the paper was smarter than one who did, someone else said the
only truth in a news paper was in the advertisements, and this is in the late 1700's/early 1800's. It was also said that banks are more dangerous
to nations than standing armies, and a revolution would probably be needed every 20 years to keep our government on the same level of innocence as it
was in some of the earlier years.
Why don't our leaders tell us these things anymore?
Is the threat of disastrous corruption from within a government now gone, only less than a hundred years after WW2 and the Holocaust?
