When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes . . . Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.
~Napoleon Bonaparte, 1815
Believe me, the next step is a currency crisis, because there will be a rejection of the dollar. The rejection of the dollar is a big, big event, and then your personal liberties are going to be severely threatened.
~Rep. Ron Paul
