Thomas
Jefferson said in 1802:

“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.”
