Have her read "The Creature

Have her read "The Creature From Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin. It's a big book, but very informative.

But, make sure she reads

the reason for the central

the reason for the central bank is so the government can spend money without having to raise taxes etc.. if they ewant military,social or any other kind of spending to occur but do not have the money for it they can print the money to pay for what they want..

as for me and my home, we shall worship the LORD

Because

every country of interest which hasn't adopted a central bank which operates under Rothschild controls, has been attacked and taken over by countries which have.
Still going on today, although there are very few countries left that aren't under their thumbs, which are of any consequence whatever. And soon there will be none..

It's called "eliminating the competition".

If tyrrany is so bad...

...why has it been the most popular form of rule since the dawn of man?

I'm guessing your girlfriend's mother never asked her, "Well, if all your friends went running off a cliff, would you do it, too?"...

Because without a central bank

there are monetary crises from time to time. The creation of central banks is sometimes well intentioned; it was thought central banking would prevent the short term crises that sometimes occurred. It's just that people didn't foresee that the cure is worse than the disease, like long term depreciation of the currency and depressions. Remember, the Great Depression happened after the Fed was created.

Then governments see how convenient it is for them to have a central bank; it allows them to print money whenever they need it to finance waste. So they're very difficult to get rid of.

The first thing most people want when the market has a problem is more government - more central control - instead of just letting the market itself cure the problem. Then when those controls are institutionalized, it takes a Herculean effort to reverse them.

Read this Billy Dee and wake up to reality

Capitalism: An Unknown Ideal by Ayn Rand

Contains three articles by Greenspan including his masterpiece "Gold and Economic Freedom"

and "The Roots of War" by Ayn Rand which would answer your girlfriends question and probably make her pissed about central banks and how without them their would be fewer wars!

By the way Billy Dee those monetary crisises(run on the banks) were created by the Rothschilds and their agents (Most notably JP Morgan)

I've already read them

If you think I'm defending central banking, you should read closer.

couple of reasons

Fortune Favors the Bold

one is the nature of government. Paul's ideas, and indeed, america's ideas, of freedom are fairly radical in comparison to the whole of human history.

The other reason is international pressure. Institutions like the IMF and world bank would have means to penalize countries that didn't have a central bank.

Fortune Favors the Bold

allow fiat money competition

Would your mate agree that allowing voluntary competition with the central bank would be OK? So that alternative currencies, voluntarily accepted, wouldn't be shut down (see Liberty Dollar last year).

The Fed

The same argument could have been advanced on behalf of slavery throughout much of human history. How can it be bad when it's everywhere?

A Simple Explanation

The best and clearest explanation of what the FED does is in this little video. The rest of the page is what MONEY really is and isn't.

http://www.svpvril.com/Money.html

Actually the FED is one of the worst things that ever happened to humanity. Almost every ill facing people today can be traced to the devaluing of the money. Every day people need more dollars to cover their expenses and every day the dollars they have are worth less and less. This incites viciousness, lack, hopelessness and dog eat dog mentality - exactly what we are seeing more and more every day. Here is a sorry example of what happens when the value of money is depleted - and this kind of story will occur more often and with more ill effects as the FED continues to steal from every man, woman and child in America.

Point them in the right direction in a respectful fashion.

“In many of the segments of culture today, the meaning of life is often reduced to cruising with the popular culture. It doesn’t take a course in psychoanalysis to glimpse severe anxiety behind this posture of know-nothingness.
If you had ideas and took yourself seriously, you would have to be constantly awake, educating yourself, and getting involve with your community. It’s safer to hide out in a pretense of ignorance. For that is what ‘cool’ mindlessness is, a way to sleep through life and not feel the sting & challenge of being engaged.”
-Thomas Moore, the Dark Nights of the Soul

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

It is like putting a cart

It is like putting a cart loaded with sh*t in front of the mule. It's the mule that drives the economic. Center Bank is an unnecessary burden.

If slavery is so bad.....

...why does every slave have a job?

Slavery, Radon, Human

Slavery, Radon, Human Sacrifice and Not Bathing. Just a few examples of what many different socities and cultures did for a long time, not know that these actions we bad for them (either morally or physically). Just cause everyone is hopping on the bandwagon, doesn't mean it's a great place to be.

Well it is a world wide movement

Our Federal Reserve has no audit of it. It is not controlled by our government. It works hand in hand with our government. Our economy is dependent upon them. It wouldn't be so bad if they had regulations like Usury laws, conglomerate laws, etc. Our government is full of conflict of interests. Their goals have nothing to do with the health of our economy, or the well being of the people as a whole.

It is called

control. Look up the Rothchilds on the internet to see how it all got started. There are many timeline articles and videos.
