I just read "End the Fed" by Paul in less than 24 hours. That needs to be required in schools, not some Fed propoganda crap!

Did any of you read the St. Louis Fed lesson plan on Scribd?

An excerpt:

"23. Explain that there are many problems created when control of a country's money supply is too closely linked to the country's government. Discuss the following:

Governments often print money to pay off debts or fund programs even though this may not be the best thing for the economy. The Continental Congress did this during the Revolutionary War. In 1775, it gave the colonies the authority to issue Continental dollars to finance the war. Overissuance and counterfeiting by the British led to huge increases in the amount of paper currency. By 1779, the value of the Continental dollar was 1/25 of its original value, giving rise to the phrase "not worth a Continental"."

This education program does not look like a bad thing at all.

+ Constructive comments

Yeah, you really missed the important part...

....Right underneath that line, it explains how this all led to the *necessity* of creating the Federal Reserve.

Don't re-write their propaganda.


I don't know where you're reading. The next line is:

"During the Civil War, the Confederate government also succumbed to the temptation of printing money to buy goods."

And the paragraph below that starts with:

"Explain that Congress used powers granted in the necessary and proper clause to delegate its monetary powers to the Federal Reserve System."

You can't just make things up to suit your personal biases.

I'm not saying that having the fed is necessarily a good thing. I'm just pointing out that this educational program explains both the legislative history of the Fed and the explanations for why it was created: to avoid the printing of money that leads to inflation.

Whether or not the Fed meets that goal now is irrelevant to what's in the document.

+ Follow the Cooperative principle
+ Civility first
+ Constructive comments

Yet another reason

to ditch the mind laundries and homeschool!

Will that be where under Article 1, or Article 8 by the way...

....that the Federal Reserve is found?

Oh, wait. It's NOT found any place in the constitution!!

Shoot I knew I missed something. IT AIN'T THERE.

Obama & the Fed gave us this:

Cut off funding to government schools. Contact your assemblies right away, city to city.

Confirmed by DP member they are already in the schools with

their propaganda.

Remove children

from govt. schools. This is a campaign that should be started.

All the churches should be teaching Constitutional law as part of their religious ed.

Start neighborhood groups to teach real Constitional law and issues with kids. It could be set up by precincts or congressional districts.

Fight fire, with fire.

I haven't had the chance to read this topic...

But based on the headline, if the Fed is instructing a course on it's own Constitutionality, that class should last no longer than two minutes.

Consolidation of power is generational through central education

Another step in the process.
Get rid of Dept. of Education. Any candidate not making that a high priority isn't worthy of a vote. Hmmm, I can only think of one who is worthy then; RP of course.

Undo what Wilson did

Knowing how us RP supporters are...our kids

will turn this into a debate. They will be too well informed to blindly believe anything taught about the gov't in a school system funded by it.

I love visual #4. lol

Boo to the Dept of Feducation!!!

Posted that link on my

Posted that link on my facebook. I hope I'm waking up a few friends. I did notice one pretty heavy liberal is starting to say a few positive things about Dr. Paul. I have heard there are people on my friend list who do look at my links but the way FB is set up now, I don't know how many see them. I believe the way they have it set now is that only a few individuals will see your posts at a time; mostly ones that go to your profile. That's why I post at different times of the day in hopes someone will see a "recent post". Those aren't as "selective" I don't think. I don't think they can outsmart the human mind if you want to know the truth about it. It's like the election probably being manipulated by big corporate interests. I'm feeling it more and more. They can't stop millions of people. We really do have the upper hand. It's just realizing it and spreading the word, one person at a time.

If a day comes....

When America is rubble, and it's time to rebuild, or perhaps it's only your state, standing alone after the United States is gone...

and you have a Constitutional Convention:

Are you ready for an amendment that puts in place a "Separation Between School and State" and ready to go up against EVERY force that, knowing how they destroyed America, will want to plant that "school seed" again so it can all happen again later on?

We need a separation between school and state with the level of fanatical enforcement seen so far only for church and state.

Without it, then everything we do, success or not, is going to be wasted. We can roll the country right back to 1776, law-wise, but having been there, we will be here again.

A separation between school and state MUST happen, or there can be no more state.

I hope we all learned the lesson. If the Founders were here today to see this, there would have been an amendment. They didn't predict that social engineers would foist a Prussian school system (why else is the term "kindergarden"- based on a German word - used?) with a 100 year plan such that the fruits we are seeing today.

If dueling is brought back, I will duel everybody to the death to make sure such an Amendment comes if we have a CC2.

Talk about the fox guarding the hen house.

I call this a major conflict of interest.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul


Maybe not quite appropriate for younger kids, but 8th-12th graders might learn a lot from this video.

This comes as no suprise

The one and only thing I can remember from my 10th grade history class was how "great" the new deal was. I remember my teacher had pressed this for like a week.

This could very well backfire

on these miscreants. As a few of the educators have quoted below, teaching kids the real story behind the Fed , most expressly the underhanded way it was passed into law along with the IRS, could ignite an outrage in students. Embellish upon the curriculum and let the dogs loose.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

they should also indoctrinate the kiddies on these...

Dred Scott v. Sanford = Supreme Court decides slavery is OK.

Korematsu v. United States = Supreme Court decides putting Americans in concentration camps is OK.

The US Constitution is a negative rights authorization for American government. Basically, a few detailed responsibilities are listed and then all other federal involvement is explicitly DENIED.

Lawyers and politicians love to re-define the meaning of words such as "regulate" or "necessary & proper" to mean the opposite of their true intent, passing horrible unconstitutional federal actions that they wish to convince you are the "law".

For every statist spewing this garbage there needs to be an entire classroom that will rise up and spit back in true American spirit. Sadly, I doubt most kids care either way.

If you are ignorant or apathetic enough to go along with this criminality then you deserve the government you have gotten.

Funny how its the people who truelly wish to follow our supreme rule-of-law are labeled "unpatriotic", "against the troops" or "terrorists". Unbelievably Orwellian.

we live

we live in an orwellian state.

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

Basic premise of the doc

Attempts to establish the federal GovCorp trumps states. Also loaded with double-speak - makes people think the constitution is "complicated." It also suggest that people do not interpret the constitution - the supreme court does.

Please: Get yank your kids out of public indoctrination centers. Homeschooling via the internet is the way to go.

(I got to page three - couldn't stand it anymore.)

The thing is dominated by doublespeak.

Seriously, you've got to admire

How sustained they are in their deception planning, scheduling, and execution.

Message to the Federal Reserve planners:

Yes, go for it!

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie...

... Till you can.

Satantastic! Hell yeah, and go on with poisoning kids' brains, now, while you're at it.

It's so much fun and will come in such a handy in 20 years to renew your slave pool!


You big filthy losers, though:

Your time is coming, Human Shame.

You just can't accept it, can you?

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Not If I Can Help It

I wrote my master's thesis on the Federal Reserve and now I teach H.S. Government and Economics. I can proudly say that I absolutely destroy the Fed when I teach about it. I explain to the students that it is not some mysterious entity that is too complex for them to understand and then I teach them the real scoop. I go back to the Panic of 1907 and how the Fed was created not to benefit the consumer but instead to perpetuate a failing system and to ensure that banks would not have to increase their reserve holdings. The Fed was a lie from its very beginnings and the same propaganda that it originated from had been honed for the last 100 years. Man, I love giving students real knowledge and not treating them like morons. They are motivated by a sense of justice that teachers just have to tap into.

Keep fighting the good fight

Don't forget to show the increase in purchasing power of...

...the dollar after Jackson got rid of the last Central Bank and discuss what the standard of living must have been like.

I've found tables on-line that show that by the early 1900s one dollar could buy $4 worth of stuff! Right after the Federal Reserve Act passed, the purchasing power started tanking. 1967 was the last year one dollar bought one dollar's worth of stuff --- which was when a loaf of bread was 28 cents. The dollar lost purchasing power at a faster rate after the gold standard was trashed in the 70s.

I haven't seen tables that show how much faster it lost purchasing power in the last 4 years after the bailouts etc but they must exist. I've certainly seen inflation worse than I ever remember it being in the past 5 decades by watching the prices of food increase. Kids need to understand the connection to the cost of living and the banksters printing money causing rampant inflation by expanding the money supply.

Lost $50,000 in the 1907 panic. Who got my money?

Back when money was coined in silver, who got my money?

$50,000 I had deposited in Knickerbocker Trust. Awoke one morning to the alarm that something at the Knickerbocker had gone terribly wrong. Terror of terror... my money disappeared... Though properly accounted in their books, my money simply vanished.

I advised that a receivership would come to no good. I wrote a letter to the New York Times in protest... But, to no avail. My money vanished... And the receivership did nothing much beyond paying bankers to manage money that was not there.

It would have been cheaper to hire a harem.

1907. Regrettably mine... My $50,000 lost in Knickerbocker Trust
