I continue to be "awakened" to a deeper understanding of the way in which our economy works...or doesn't...and like most "sleepers" when we have that moment where the "scales fall from our eyes"; I can feel alternately overwhelmed or empowered.
As both the news commentator, Dylan Ratigan for MSNBC and Congressman Alan Grayson (D) Florida and member of the House's Financial Services Com't assert in this news broadcast video, most of us and yes, even many congresspeople are not really educated in the ways in which money is created and regulated, IE controlled in this country. This is not an accident!
Start your own research...Abraham Lincoln re-instituted fiat currency...ie real money issued by the government during the Civil War...and took on the banking cartels. He was assassinated.
