“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” -Thomas Jefferson
Well we are now living in a time when we are being told that there is a shortage of oil and food. The demand for food and gasoline is up but the supply has not gone up and that means higher prices. It now costs 5$ for a bag of rice, 4$ for a gallon of gasoline and it's going to get worse! The cost of living is going up and it's because of taxes, oil cost and those Democrats! Well I want to say that the above is true except there's just one thing that you should know...
The cost of living has not gone up at all. That's right! Four gallons of gasoline costs a dollar, a bag of rice costs less than a dollar, just like it did fifty years ago. "HUH!? HOW'S THAT!?" You ask. Well let me ask you this, what if I told you that we are all being robbed and having our hard earned wealth taken from us by the government? You would say, "Tell me somthing I don't know!" Well that's exactly what is going on. If we have such a shortage of fuel, why are we building new gas stations? Wheat production is at around 40 to 80 percent higher than ever, theres enough for food and biofuel and there's new farms coming up, what gives? The answer is simple, its not that life is more expensive, its that the value of the dollar has gone down.
America is losing it's wealth, because we have switched from a gold standard to a fiat money system that is controlled by unscropulous bankers and politicians in our own government. Starting in 1912 with the founding of the Federal Reserve by Woodrow Wilson (D) followed by the closing of our mints by Franklin D. Roosevelt, (D) our government with the help of evil bankers has been misallocating and contracting the nation's money supply. It has lead to massive inflation, economic recesions and depresions and has worsened them. The value of our dollars go up while gold becomes more valuable. The private cartel of evil bankers are hoarding their money through Silver, gold and platinum which go up while our dollars go down which is useless paper. The paper currency has gone back to the olden days when people traded with gold coins also called ounces. 1000 copper coins or ounces was generally worth one gold coin. Trade was also done with Silver coins. Overtime the people became more and more wealthy and the supply of silver and gold increased, merchants and banks began to issue paper currency which stated that so and so was free to take this much gold from my vault. These bank notes as they were called became more and more common yet the bankers began to exploit the value of these notes. The notes that were once worth 100 gold ounces became worth 50 gold ounces, then 30 gold ounces and the value goes down. congress once had the awesome power to decide the value of currency. Now it is done again by private corrupt bankers with little or no safeguard for the rest. Our money in the banks and in our wallets have become more and more useless and the power of our savings have gone down while the value of gold goes up.
Practically all governments of history, have used their exclusive power to issue money to defraud and plunder the people." Gold stands in the way of this process; it is a protector of property rights. -Friedrich von Hayek
Gold is not necessary. I have no interest in gold. We'll build a solid state, without an ounce of gold behind it. Anyone who sells above the set prices, let him be marched off to a concentration camp. That's the bastion of money. - Adolph Hitler
Anyone buying gold as an investment is hoping that the dollar sinks in order to turn a profit. - Anonymous
Long ago the Dollar was as good as gold. Now it is worthless as the paper and low grade metals it represents.
