    I thank you for bringing this up for discussion. I want you to understand, that I am one who understands this issue very, very, well.
    Seriously, this is an issue that is being used around the world to get countries and citizens to give up their sovernty to pay back this fraudulant debt. Now, that being said when "they" come to you, me or any other U.S. citizen and say this is YOUR debt, Pay me. This short little video clip should be approximatly your responce.

    Thats exactly what is WRONG with the entire concept of the Federal Reserve System - basically, the US economy is "owned" by the Federal Reserve, and the FR is NOT the US GOVERNMENT - its basically an incorporation of various PRIVATELY HELD BANKS...........Go to YouTube and search Federal Reserve and watch some of the snippets there - there is one that is rather long - almost 2 hours if I remember correctly - that will explain the FR in detail, and it will scare the CRAP outta you.........

    Yup. The same year that a private bank called Federal Reserve received the exclusive right to create "legal tender" and loan it to the US Government, the Internal Revenue Service was instituted to ensure that the loan will be paid back to the private bank.

    Sounds like a racket doesn't it? The bank was created by the Rothschilds, Warburgs and Rockefellers. These powerful families pushed the Federal Reserve Act through Congress in 1913 and made damn well sure they would be paid by every working American.

    So, yes, average folks are just now starting to see the truth of this matter.

    With regard to where the debt is held... it really matters not. The leash of debt is illusory only to the extent that each and every one of us still wishes our "hard-earned dollars" to continue to be worth something. If you give up the illusion of dollars and debt, you are also giving up the stability of a shared illusion. That, more than anything else, frightens people.

    But you have to be willing to let old things go in order to allow a new system to come into play.
