Since we're on the topic, shouldn't we be honest in recognizing our government DOES NOT CONTROL the currency?
There's nothing Federal about the Federal Reserve at all. Who sits on the board? Private bankers. Who sets the interest rates? Private Bankers.
Who determines how much cash to pump into the system? Private Bankers.
Who controls inflation? Private Bankers.
A government that doesn't control it's own currency doesn't have much, if any power at all.
