On December 23rd, 1913, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act, to make all men slaves again.
Following the American Revolution, one of the most revolutionary acts of the new government was to abandon the practice of allowing private central banks to issue the public currency. But the nation needed a sound monetary system, and so the original Founding Fathers the founding fathers abandoned the British Pound and made the basic unit of currency the "dollar".
"Dollar" is actually a weight measure of silver, 371.25 grains, to be exact. Our American silver dollars are actually heavier, since other metals were added for durability. But that 371.25 grains of silver WAS the dollar, matching in weight an unbroken chain of accepted monetary units that reached back through the Spanish Milled Dollar, the Dutch Daller, back to the German Thaler; the product of a silver mine which sold its product in coins of an exact weight. The Coinage Act of 1792 defined our dollar to exactly match in weight the silver dollars in use around the world
For the sake of convenience the US Treasury issued a paper note called the "Silver Certificate", which was easier to carry around that sacks full of silver.
But that paper note wasn't "money". It was merely a claim check for the "Dollar", which was backed by and redeemable in silver on demand. The silver certificate is merely a receipt for the bearer's dollar in silver on deposit with the treasury.
Then along came the Federal Reserve Act, and a new form of paper money called the Federal Reserve Note. Unlike the silver certificate, the Federal Reserve Note is not backed by either gold or silver. Conventional wisdom is that it is not backed by anything at all, but this is not true. The Federal Reserve Note is indeed backed, but by something the government does not want to admit to.
The Federal Reserve Note is backed by your slave labor.
The US Treasury prints up a bunch of paper called "Treasury Bills" which the Federal Reserve purchases by printing up a bunch of Federal Reserve notes. The reason the US Treasury, able to print up Treasury Notes, does not simply print up US Notes (as it briefly did during the Presidency of John F. Kennedy), conceals the secret that makes you a slave.
All currency in circulation enters circulation as a loan by the Federal Reserve. That Treasury Bill printed by the United States Government is the promise to repay that loan plus interest. Where does the US Government get that money plus interest to repay the Federal Reserve for borrowing those paper notes (that the USD Treasury could just as easily print for itself?)
In other words, slavery.
Those Treasury Bills and the Federal Reserve Notes swapped for them are backed by a promise by the United States Government that the American people, and their children, and their grandchildren, and their great-grandchildren, will be forced to work as slaves and surrender that work product without compensation via taxation to redeem those trillions in promissory paper notes Wall Street loves to throw about like confetti.
That is why you are a slave.
And here is your slave's brand .
