    "The power to determine the quantity of money ... is too important, too pervasive, to be exercised by a few people, however public-spirited, if there is any feasible alternative. There is no need for such arbitrary power. ... Any system which gives so much power and so much discretion to a few men, [so] that mistakes -- excusable or not -- can have such far reaching effects, is a bad system. It is a bad system to believers in freedom just because it gives a few men such power without any effective check by the body politic -- this is the key political argument against an independent central bank.'' --economist Milton Friedman (1912-2006)

    governments and agendas run by the rich and their puppet-lackies

    got any countries and names to add to this list???

    You know, Ron Paul and Milton Friedman have quite a history together.

    If you like the quote above, then vote for Ron Paul - he's openly demanding competing currencies to fight against the Federal Reserve notes.
