Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Charles Lindburgh, Sr. with Advice for Today

I have recently discovered a book by Congressman Charles Lindbergh Sr, entitled, Why is Your Country at War? Congressman Lindbergh was the Ron Paul of his time, calling out the hoax of the Federal Reserve:
"To cause high prices, all the Federal Reserve Board will do will be to lower the re-discount rate..., producing an expansion of credit and a rising stock market; then when ... business men are adjusted to these conditions, it can check ... prosperity in mid career by arbitrarily raising the rate of interest. It can cause the pendulum of a rising and falling market to swing gently back and forth by slight changes in the discount rate, or cause violent fluctuations by a greater rate variation and in either case it will possess inside information as to financial conditions and advance knowledge of the coming change, either up or down. This is the strangest, most dangerous advantage ever placed in the hands of a special privilege class by any Government that ever existed. The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people's money. They know in advance when to create panics to their advantage, They also know when to stop panic. Inflation and deflation work equally well for them when they control finance."
Is that not the history of the past 100 years of monetary history? Anyhow, I found the following excerpt from the book especially germane to our current political situation:

It makes since then that the TEA Party not only angers Democrats, but scares the fool out of RINOs as well. As we see our nation under the tyrannical grip of these progressives, the voting public is rapidly finding out who the true patriots are. Note: They are not Lindsey Graham, Dick Lugar, Bob Corker, John McCain, Lamar Alexander, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, etc. These people do not want to submit to our leadership. They do not want to serve, but want to dictate, through oh so paternalistic language what is best for the bankster overlords that guarantee them lucrative corporate board positions and lobbyist jobs when and if they eventually retire us peasants. I don't think these people will ever sully themselves to act on our behalf.
