    I bought the book, "The Founder's 2nd Amendment," and it looks like we are right back in 1769 right now. Our Founding Fathers had it right back then, and they still do. As George Santayana said, those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    THis is the worst case of deja vu I have ever seen.

    Very wise man. He was right. The Federal reserve act in 1913 did just as he warned.

    The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from it's profits or so dependant
    on it's favors, that there will be no opposition from that class." -- Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

    "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws" -- Mayer Amschel
    Bauer Rothschild
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7
