Thomas Jefferson Tried to Warn Americans about the Dangers of a Federal Reserve BankSubmitted by Adam Bilzerian on Thu, 08/09/2012 - 22:29
More than 200 years ago, the great American patriot and author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, wrote a brilliant essay which outlined the unconstitutional nature of the future United States Federal Reserve and also prophetically warned against its dangers. In his thought-provoking essay, Jefferson discussed the Necessary and Proper Clause of the US Constitution, which the Congress and Supreme Court have subsequently used to justify not only a central bank, but also a federal drug war, federal welfare, federal control of education, Obamacare, and a great deal of other unconstitutional and costly measures.
As Jefferson predicted, if the Necessary clause is determined to be what is convenient rather than what is truly necessary, then the enumerated powers delegated to the federal government will swallow up the broad powers reserved by the states. As a result, America now has one dominant federal government and 50 subservient state governments, rather than 50 independent states that are held together by an extremely limited federal government. The United States Federal Government was only intended to ensure basic human rights, resolve commercial disputes between the states, and provide for mutual defense. The abuse of the Necessary and Proper Clause has effectively destroyed the Tenth Amendment, which Jefferson so succinctly pointed out, “is the foundation of the Constitution.”
