Privately owned Federal Reserve System Bank

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

How have they done?

Between Congress, the President, the VP, the Supreme Court, and the Cabinet, about 540 people run the USA. The FED can afford to give each of them a $1 million per year and still have more than $24.4 billion per year left over. Do you think the FED has the power to corrupt the USA political system? Do you think our Congress acts in the best interest of WE THE PEOPLE or the FED?)

And the private owners (and their operatives) of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank will shoot back...
