Jesus resorted to violence.
Dr. Baldwin writes:
The moneychangers of Jesus’ day were the equivalent of the international bankers of our day.
He made a scourge (or whip) and drove the bankers out of the Temple by force and destroyed their tables, along with their records, receipts, etc.
It is modern moneychangers who bully and bribe our spineless and greedy politicians (from both parties) into passing so-called “free trade” deals such as NAFTA, CAFTA, and the FTAA, which have all but destroyed America’s manufacturing base and have put millions of American workers out of their jobs. It is the moneychangers who are the driving force behind the burgeoning North American Union, which sacrifices America’s national sovereignty and independence.
The use of force isn’t the answer I think, but this situation ought to be taken very seriously. One of Baldwin’s best articles, this is worth reading in full: Moneychangers Destroying Americaâ€”And Christians Don’t See It. For more, visit Dr. Baldwin’s website.
Dr. Paul says, we need transparency:
Transparency in monetary policy is a goal we should all support. I’ve often wondered why Congress so willingly has given up its prerogative over monetary policy. Astonishingly, Congress in essence has ceded total control over the value of our money to a secretive central bank.Congress, although not by law, essentially has given up all its oversight responsibility over the Federal Reserve. There are no true audits, and Congress knows nothing of the conversations, plans, and actions taken in concert with other central banks. We get less and less information regarding the money supply each year, especially now that M3 is no longer reported.
The role the Fed plays in the President’s secretive Working Group on Financial Markets goes unnoticed by members of Congress. The Federal Reserve shows no willingness to inform Congress voluntarily about how often the Working Group meets, what actions it takes that affect the financial markets, or why it takes those actions.
A wonderfully entertaining and understandable explanation of the subprime mortgage mess.
Another humorous piece regarding this mess. (Warning: foul language used, but the subject matter is not dirty.)
