don’t bank on it…

Thomas Jefferson once said:

“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.”

— Thomas Jefferson
— The Debate Over The Recharter Of The Bank Bill, (1809)
