More backasswards falsehoods from you....

Debt-Free currency that is created solely by The U.S. Treasury (and not lended into existence by private profiteering Banks) is not a "Bill of Credit".

There is no loan involved.
There is no lender to repay.
There is no interest payment.

It is possible for a Sovereign Nation to create money, rather than to borrow it from Banks.

"It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30 million in bonds and not issue $30 million in currency.

Both are promises to pay, but one fattens the usurers, and the other helps the people."

-Thomas Edison (Edison is correct)


"If we issue money diectly through the Treasury, rather than going through the Federal Reserve, we don't have to pay interest on it to the international bankers.

In the U.S. today, we have in effect two governments. we have the duly constituted government, then we have an independent, uncontrolled and uncoordinated government in the Federal Reserve, operating the money powers which are reserved to Congress by the Constitution."

-Congressman Wright Patman


"There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation.
One is by the sword. The other is by Debt."

--John Adams


"The banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. The money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed. [This is the situation we have today]

The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency. Creating and issuing money is the supreme prerogative of government and is its greatest creative opportunity. Adopting these principles will save the taxpayers immense sums of interest, and money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity."

--Abraham Lincoln
