Remember when the Stimulus Package was iffy, and The Fed said they were going to inject cash? Ok, as a private bank they could loan money to
other banks, but they can't do it in the name of the American Taxpayer. Its sickening to think that we could somehow be held accountable for paying
back monies that Congress DID NOT AUTHORIZE. Their private board of governors does not represent us.
Yes, I understand the history of The Fed, most of us here have read more about it than our congressmen. Even if we assume everything else is on the up
and up (which I think none of us believe) how did Congress stand by and allow that action? It just doesn't make sense. Yes, I understand the system
is corrupt, I just can't understand how they could do it so blatantly.
I believe it is simply the result of ignorance. Our congressional representatives are just people. Products of the same education system, who are
exposed to the same media brainwash spewing from the MSM. They really are no different from you and I. They are just regular everyday Americans who
have decided to enter the election for their post. Sure some have aspirations for more power in higher office, but for most it is simply their job,
just like any other job.
As you pointed out they know no more than the average Joe when it comes to our financial system. Another part of the deception is that whenever those
who DO know go about explaining it to the average person, they do it in such a way that reaffirms the uneducateds ignorance. They use big words and
complicated scenarios to acheive the desired result of causing the the average person to say "Wow, I just don't get it I better leave that
complicated mess for you to figure out. Just tell me what to do."
Through this simple and effective deception we have been made to facilitate our own debt slavery, with the help of bribes which we paid for of course,
and the promise of power to the power hungry, combined with basic ignorance. This describes a vast portion of our government.
I always liked what henry Ford said about our system.
It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a
revolution before tomorrow morning.
Funny how the rich and powerfull freely announce to the ignorant masses what they know to be true, from their firmly entrenched positions above us.
Sad how we get what we deserve by laughing it off and doing nothing about it.
