“ I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous
to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever
allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation,
then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up
around the banks will deprive the people of all property until
their children wake-up homeless on the continent
their fathers conquered.”
Thomas Jefferson in 1802

From Letter to the Editor: “Money injection into the economy is serious error”

giving heroin to an addict who is thrashing around In a
“cold turkey” mania. It will not make the economic
emergency better and will make it worse.”
(3) Allow partial privatization of the social security system which
will return retirees more money and fund the system, according

congress oversight against bad market practices.
(4) Adopt a flat tax to save countless hours and expense with our
complex tax codes.
I advocate scholarships for students to study energy problems.
