"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. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
P.S. I popped over to Daryl's first thing this morning and thought I'd share the link she has up. My youngest child is determined to run a cat shelter when he grows up, so this one is near and dear to me. Check it out, will ya? Thanks!
