Americans, you're being robbed. Get educated about money.

I graduated from high school knowing next to nothing about how the economy works, and I'm no dummy. How can we expect American voters to elect the right people when they don't understand the most basic components of their economic system?
Jefferson wrote: "If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."

I can't help but think that the only reason people tolerate the rampant thievery that's been going on in the past several years is that people don't understand this is no accident. It's no accident we're in such a deep recession. It's no accident the dollar's in the gutter. It's not "bad luck" that caused the housing markets to fail and people losing their homes and all their jobs being sent overseas. This was planned. We've been robbed. And the people are being placated and distracted by Mainstream Media people in league with the robbers.

Every American should learn about it -- otherwise how can they be depended on to make good choices at the ballot box? When I graduated from high school, I didn't even realize that the Federal Reserve was a bunch of privately held banks. I believe the Fed is unconstitutional, and never should have been permitted. We are silently being robbed every day with interest on money they print out of nothing, in the guise of inflation. We are being reduced to slaves, and things that used to be owned by the public are now being "privatized," i.e. stolen from the people. We have slowly been selling our sovereignty to the highest bidder. What good are lower taxes when you've lost your voice and all your rights?
