Here is the "history' of the Federal Reserve from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Reserve_Act IN his book The Creature from Jekyll Island, Mr. Griffin goes into depth on the origins and ecomonic workings of the Federal Reserve. He fills in the blanks of this accepted history. He explains the motives and the players behind its inception. I will give you goosebumps. You can find a short interview or the complete text by googling the title of the book. Mr. Griffin has made it available on the net as a way to educate and inform on this most important topic. Short talk by author of The Creature of Jekyll Island, Edward Griffin. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6507136891691870450# There are twelve ten minute videos in this series of talks from Edward Griffin explaining the Federal Reserve on YouTube as well. Search Edward Griffin on the site. Nest,Ron Paul explaining the unconstitutionality of the Federal Reserve Act and criminal actions of the Federal Reserve. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji_G0MqAqq8 The Federal Reserve is NOT a branch of the federal government. It's a cartel (cartels are developed to eliminate competition) of very powerful and wealthy bankers who are not concerned with the welfare of America. The Federal Reserve Act is a partnership with these bankers and our government. The Fed is creating money out of NOTHING and charging us/ourgovernment interest on it. Its the perfect scam. This system permeates our whole economy. Because they are able, with the push of a button to create money, they are able to control interests rate artifically. They can cause recessions, depressions and thereby control the entire economy, and through that, control us. The original bill was watered down to enable passage. Since its passage it has been ammended and gained strength. The Federal Reserve is connected to the World Monetary Fund. (through the United Nations) The World Monetary Fund loans or gives money to third world governments, effectively buying them and controling them. They finance wars, often giving money to both sides. It is not about ideologies with the Federal Reserve and those who operate it. It is not about wealth, though there is much of it at their desposal and it is used to 'buy' influence in our most treasured institutions and orginazations. It is about power and control. They loan our government trillions created out of thin air, and charge us interest on nothing. They are controling our purchasing power and getting very wealthy in the process. Wealth = power. They have almost brought America to it's knees. All the bailouts have to be paid back. Mind you, it is NOT about which party does what...it is about the very nature of our banking system, which is controled by the Federal Reserve that is destroying us. When all those debts are 'called in' and we cannot pay them back, we will be done as a nation.

it is crazy that the reserve prints money with no base value like gold. because the amount of american dollars is increased when the country is not actually making gains the value of each dollar is reduced. so if you think about it not only was the bailout using taxpayers money but because a large portion was new printings taxpayers money loses value. i dont understand why the us does't use the gold standard anymore its getting ridiculous.

It has been done delibrately. I hope you are able to view the video links I've posted. They do a much better job of explaining it all, than I can. I am still trying to wrap my head around it too.

This is why our Founders warned against Central Banking and European entanglements. This is also why Congress is the one with the power over our money, and not a banking cartel such as the Federal Reserve. People need to get educated.

People really need to educate themselves on the Federal Reserve System's hisory. Congressman Nelson Aldridge sat down with the big bankers from Europe (warburg) and America (JP Morgan), and others, those very bankers who had a monopoly on banking in the first place...and drafted a bill that supposedly was designed to protect the American economy from the 'money trust' monopoly...and then when the American people said NO WAY...they repackaged it and used propaganda to fool them into thinking they had 'ammended' it. Edward Griffin has made it sound like a spy thriller...with political intrigue thrown in...it made me boiling mad to hear what took place, especially the spin doctors (media) part in it all.

There is a documentary called Freedom To Fascism which I highly recommend, which goes into a lot of detail about this issue. There are others as well.

I am listening to it right now, and to tell you the truth it makes me want to not pay taxes in April.

You might be interested to know (or probably already do!) that Congressman Ron Paul has introduced a bill to audit the FED. Apparently, there are almost already enough co-sponsors that the bill will pass. Last I heard, co-sponsors were still signing on.

I think there are enough. Last I read anyway. I am just beginning to learn about the Federal Reserve System. Have you read Edward Griffin's book...The Creature from Jekyll Island? I have seen interviews, watched videos of his talks along with Ron Paul's talks and I am convinced this is the vehicle that will bring us to our knees. They couldn't defeat us in war...so they tunneled in through our economy. Frankly, now I am scared. What will happen once they audit the Fed? Can we do away with the Fed and go back to the gold standard?

A criticism as a novice researcher if I may... always try to find a better source than wikipedia to post--I Love it as an initial starting point, then jump to more legitimate sites to cite. That being said, informative post, I'm reading amongs about a dozen other books, "The Creature..." right now, it's a devastatingly fascinating read.

I did use it as a starting point. I figured someone would provide a link to the sanitized version of the Fed's history, so I started from there. I read it, then I listened to the video and synopsis (very thorough btw) of the book. The key differences are very telling indeed. Mr. Griffin and Ron Paul have excellently exposed the purposes of the Fed in my humble opinion.

I hope you didn't take my critique as an attack. Looking back I realize I could've been more tactful... Anyway, about that Fed, it's amazing how hard it is to get the average person to comprehend it, and how we've been so bamboozled. It's craziness all around.

Don't you wish that the typed word had as much 'feeling' as the spoken word in cases like this? I did not feel you attacked me at all. My frustration is mostly on those who do not care to look into any of it, yet seem to have a strong opinion anyway. I keep asking myself how they cannot see what I see.
