a three hour video on the money situation...the why and how

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
Still so true today!
I have watched just about every one of these videos including Alex Jones End Game and all the Zeitgeist series.
It's unfortunate the Americans are so Ignorant.
All you have to do is go the Federal Reserve site and read how it works.
All you need to understand is that the 12 Member Banks are owned by Private Bankers. And ANY person from ANY country with the money can buy the shares.
The United States Government is bought and sold by World Bankers and people are too stupid to see what is going on. Ignorance and Apathy.
It's more Amazing that when People like Ron Paul bring this issue to the Congressional Floor the elected Politicians vote it down.
HR1207 is a wimpy bill but it's better than nothing. Yet there is a big group of primarily Democrats against Auditing the Fed.
Look at all the people that voted against it:

This is not an Republican or Democratic party issue... this effects our very way of life.
People have no faith in Politicians but they will not educate themselves and get behind real issues like HR 1207 and supporting the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The Unseen Hand
by Ralph Epperson
I just want to say that both of these books are magnificent.
As far as the original topic goes, lending institutions are indeed evil. They hold more power combined than every single person in the United States.
But how is this possible?
They hold all the currency in their hands. So long as more than 10% of people agree to use it, there's no way to abandon it. You are literally policed based upon a system of borrowing devised for the federal government.
Oh, and by the way, can anyone tell me off the top of their head which of America's market crashes weren't caused directly by banks?
and they just keep printing more money to use...
None; not banks, but the elitists behind them?
I still say banks. The reason for this is that while the mints, which are run by federal institutions, Money printing, while a big side-effect of inflation and therefore the devaluement of items, does not simply cause a market to crash overnight.
Losing value in stocks and items such as mortgages in mass proportions, however, ...
The Federal reserve is "owned" by it's 12 member banks who in turn are owned by Shareholders of Commercial Banks.
The individuals are "secret" because corporate privacy laws protect their identity. You do not have to be American to own stock in commercial banks.
So the shareholders control the money supply and are secret.
Ron Paul has introduced House Bill HR 1207 to Audit the Federal Reserve which will shed light on the secrecy and there is finally some support.
Why any American would be against an Audit of the Fed is mind boggling. Yet over and over Politicans are fighting Ron Paul on disclosure.
Stock Certificates are nothing more than pieces of paper claiming ownership to an asset. Stock prices are based on Balance Sheet Valuations and Projected Earnings. The Stock Market is similar to currency in that values are based on perceptions.
Unfortunately the "Mints" are NOT run by the Government and this is an important distinction.
When the Federal Government wants to flood the market with currency they sell Treasury Bills to the Federal Reserve and the Federal Reserve buys the Treasury Bills. This not only creates more money from nothing, it creates DEBT as the Treasury Bills carry interest rates.
So few Americans have any real idea who the Money Supply works and this is why it is so easy for the Bankers to operate in Secrecy.
Inflation is a by product of increased currency printed out of thin air. Each new dollars backed and based on nothing devalues the currency in circulation.
However there is actually very little hard currency. All that really happens is entries are made on the books. 97% or our money supply doesn't exist on paper or coin - it is nothing more than accounting entries.
People need to understand this simple fact.

Maybe the word hate is a little strong. So why do people dislike President Obama and the way he is running the country? Are you an Obama fan? Yes, no, what is your opinion of Obama and his policies?
