The Bank Problem

The Bank Problem has a great quote from Thomas Jefferson up as it’s “quote of the day.”

“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.” Thomas Jefferson (1802)

I am assuming that the quote will change tomorrow so here is a permanent link to a site that has that quote on it:

Keep it Local

Keep it Local

From The Patriot Post:

“[T]he States can best govern our home concerns and the general government our foreign ones. I wish, therefore…never to see all offices transferred to Washington, where, further withdrawn from the eyes of the people, they may more secretly be bought and sold at market.”

— Thomas Jefferson (letter to Judge William Johnson, 12 June 1823)
