Forum Post: The 1%: How They Get Our Money and How to Stop Them

The Central Bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution. . . . I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the Government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs. If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers occupied.

The way to stop them is to take your money out of their banks! Learn to invest it yourself! There should be bank runs galore out here!

PS: The Fed is untouchable. Forget about em. Create your own economy!

And, btw, while removing your money from financial institutions is a good idea, it does not stop the transfer of wealth from main street to the elite, which is accomplished by inflation of the currency (#1), and bailouts (a far distant second).

I beg your pardon? The banks are not untouchable. Not by a long shot.

Didn't say "the banks." Citi is VERY vulnerable. One bank run on that dog and it would be down for the count.

The Fed is a different animal. Forget about fuckin with them. If I thought I could organize it, I would totally rage on Citi.

You are mistaken. International finance is ONE cartel, of which the Fed is only part. It IS a (privately owned) bank and it just gave 16 trillion in US taxpayer money to other members of the cartel.

While true that banks collude and are definitely one cartel, if one weighs too heavily on the rest they will have to let it die.

Also, you gotta remember that the perceived value of these banks is mostly virtual. One bank goes down, the rest lose value via their stock price. If they lose enough they become vulnerable to government.

The next step then would be to have government that actually does something with that advantage rather than Obama and pussy ass Geithner who didn't do a damn thing when this exact situation happened after Lehman fell. I think that's the problem with this little situation.

And I know the Fed is private. However, because it is the lender TO the lenders, it by definition can not fall first. It would have to be the last to go, so it is in effect untouchable until we get another Lehman situation.

Again, you are mistaken. The Fed is the part that issues debt as money and thereby are the only part of the cartel that can redistribute the money of the people to the cartel. The Fed is the head of the octopus and the head needs to be cut off and our money nationalized.

You cannot change that which you do not understand. Refuse to be led by the nose and LEARN. OWS hidden hands are trying to keep this information out of the discussion by creating a "narrative" to manipulate the protesters.

Wall St = the international financial mafia. Watch the video and learn how to stop them.
