“Apparently, I’m supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Obama does with mine.”

    I don’t care what Romney or Obama do with their personal money.  I do care where their campaign money comes from though, as it may reveal who they “owe” for being elected. This is important as it affects how they will govern and spend MY money.  

    From January:

    “Romney has raised $32.2 million in campaign cash. His major contributors are the banksters Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group, Morgan Stanley, HIG Capital, Barclays, Bank of America, JP Morgan & Chase, USB AG, Wells Fargo, Blackstone Group, Citigroup, sundry Wall Street fat cats and his former firm, Bain & Co.”.

    Obama’s contribution list looks eerily similar.  

    When do we start to connect the dots that candidates from both political parties are bought, so that those at the top always remain in control no matter who is elected?  When do we realize that both sides of the MSM are complicit, and owned by the same entities as the banks, because they only put certain candidates in public view as our “choice” and the “front runner”?  When do we connect the dots that those same entities who serve at the Fed Reserve board then go work for the “too big to fail” banks have no interest in a sound currency and therefore economy for the American people?  

    Romney: “I think Ben Bernanke is a student of monetary policy; he’s doing as good a job as he thinks he can do…I’m not going to spend my time going after Ben Bernanke. I’m not going to spend my time focusing on the Federal Reserve.”. 

    Of course Mitt, that is completely understandable.

    When do we realize that our troubles stem from the same small group of people and we must choose differently if we want our lives to change for the better?  

    Romney and Obama will owe the same bankers for election, bankers who also spend billions to lobby and control Congress, control the value of our dollar via the Fed, and use the media to keep Americans in the dark as to who is behind the destruction of our economy, liberty, and Constitution.  

    Sorry, I don’t trust either one with my money or liberty.

    Open your eyes, look at the truth and behave accordingly.

    Interesting list (above).

    There’s another list….with just one name one it. Ron Paul.

  5. Great job Bill on posting that link, it is a good reading. I had read the “History of Money” but not the one you have posted. I wish everyone that visits the GTP website would read it and the one on the history of money. It is impossible to understand the present if we do not know our past. Without that knowledge we would just be charging into the future with blindsides.
