"Bankers are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out & by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of
our central bank system, there would be a revolution before morning. If the central bank continues to control our currency, receiving our public
monies, & holding thousands of our citizens in dependence, it would be more formidable & dangerous than the naval & military power of the enemy. It is
not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government ... More than 8 million dollars of the stock of this bank are held by
foreigners ... Is there no danger to our liberty & independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? If government
would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its favor alike on the high & the low, the rich & the poor, it would
be an unqualified blessing."
~ President Andrew Jackson, 1829-1837

Andrew Jackson was fervently opposed to paper money.
More specifically, he was vehemently opposed to a privately owned central bank ... he wanted a publicly owned central bank.
(all the quotes are at bottom of page). For his anti-Bank of England views and resisting the Bank of
England founding a privately owned bank in the U.S., there was an assassination attempt on his life ... but two derringers misfired. Lincoln wasn't
so lucky when he issued publically-owned greenbacks; nor Garfield, who opposed the Fed being privately-owned; nor Kennedy, who printed billions of
publically-owned $2 bills that angered the Fed/City of London. City of London is responsible for murdering Lincoln, Garfield & Kennedy --and for the
assassination attempt on Jackson -- they ALL wanted a publically-owned central bank as the U.S. Constitution & related documents mandate.
