Quotes from history regarding the bankers

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies." Thomas Jefferson.

"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in our Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honour or virtue, so much as the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation." John Adams

"If we American people ever allow monopoly banking to control the issue of currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, these banks and bureaucracies that will grow up around them will deprive we, the people of all our property until our children will wake up homeless on the continent which God gave us for stewardship." Thomas Jefferson

"The bold efforts that the present bank has made to control the government, the distress it has wantonly caused, are but premonitions of the fate which awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution. If the people only understood the rank injustice of the money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning. You are a den of vipers and thieves." Andrew Jackson

"While boasting of our noble deeds we are careful to conceal the ugly fact that by our iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression which, though more refined, is not less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery."
Horace Greely

"The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of war. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all that even question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies. the Southern Army in front of me and the financial institutions at the rear. The latter is my greatest foe." Abraham Lincoln

Otto von Bismark, Chancellor of Germany, despaired of banks as is proven in his lament upon the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Bismark, known as 'the great unifier,' and a true statesman, said: -The death of Lincoln is a disaster for Christendom. I fear that the bankers, with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will control the exuberant riches of America, and use it to corrupt modern civilization. They will not hesitate to plunge Christendom into wars and chaos in order that the earth should become theirs."
