In the wee hours of the AM, on a black day for America in 1913, a quorum of Republicans with Democratic support, surrendered the sovereignty of the UNITED STATES to America's elite, our wealthy bankers, passing the "Federal Reserve Act", authorizing America's wealthy bankers, not the American people, to control the nation's money supply and regulate interest rates, thereby reaping for themselves untold riches while placing the American people in financial bondage forever more, saddled with massive national debt for all future generations to come, and the financial bondage, coupled with the loss of civil liberties and individual freedoms, continues to assure the bankers their riches and profits, with their servants (presidents and congress) waging unending wars of aggression and forced occupations of foreign lands in the far corners of the earth to increase the debt, the needs of the American people not an issue, not a right of citizenship, but a luxury to be put off indefinetly and for future generations of Americans to come, their Republic, sold out by those sworn to protect and defend.
