Reflections on the Loss of the Freeborn American Nation. Banksters Against People
Sound Bite

This book chronicles the historical debate over whether to have a US central bank, the rise of currency manipulation in the United States, and sources of the US Civil War.

Slavery was not viewed as a moral horror in 1776, when the US Constitution was created, and the US Civil War was not fought over slavery. This book aims to show that the Federalists, the banking interests, corporations, and very wealthy individuals used and distorted the issue of slavery in order to promote their control over the land, its resources and its people, in the absolute, from the very first day of European landing in North America.

Other, "freedom loving" Americans advocated free enterprise and a light regime of laws that would allow and enable each citizen to prosper according to his abilities - without undue taxation, licensing fees, and other laws geared to protect big corporations.

Mr. Dowless shows that whereas the debate over slave holding was intentionally turned into an emotionally-driven moralistic argument, regrettably slave ownership was, up to the mid-19th century, the only option enabling agricultural plantations to attain economy of scale and thus produce a profit - and not only in the United States. Meanwhile, even our dismal national health care system has been subordinated to the interests of Big Pharma, insurance and other corporate giants and their shareholders.

The argument is documented and illustrated with archival research as well as eye-witness evidence from the past half a century, in which so many of the charming features of small-town America have disappeared.

Who ever thought kids could be barred from setting up lemonade stands in their own driveway?

The debate over centralization of federal power versus maintaining the independent powers of the states began before the signing of the Declaration of Independence, but it remained a core issue on the eve of the Civil War. Mr. Dowless shows that a major reason why the North provoked this war was to knock out the economic base supporting the representative body calling for the checks on currency, which was mainly in the South.

The urge to war was fueled first by making an appeal to emotion via incendiary literature against slavery, then the movement of demagogues who were sent throughout the land to give speeches to arouse the masses into taking sides based on emotional impulses. We know who won. The result is that the forces of the banks, and the large corporations, completely dominate the US government, and the average US citizen no longer has any entity within the US government that serves his interests or cares for his concerns.

Now, Mr. Dowless observes, we know why it seems that no president stands up for rights of the people. Furthermore, our right to bear arms is under threat. Should the second amendment be neutralized or eliminated, suspension of the Constitution will not be far behind.

This work also points out that the US Constitution itself has been corrupted. The thirteenth amendment did not outlaw slavery, to every reader's shock and surprise. It simply exchanged the legal right to own slaves from the individual over into the hands of corporations and the government. Further, the preamble of the Declaration of Independence gives states the right to choose secession, if the people in those states feel that the forces of government seek to impose itself upon them against their own interests and the word of the Constitution. The tenth amendment itself clarifies that, if we observe the pre-1860 wording.

Doing away with our second amendment is part of a larger agenda, and it does not serve in the best interest of the rank and file American citizen; but it does make US citizens vulnerable to any ambition that the cartel powers running the US government desire. The signs indicate that a holocaust looms ahead. Americans say "never here"; but this work aims to show that to protect themselves and their rights, Americans must come to the realization that yes, indeed, a reign of terror is very possible, and men of vision going as far back as Jefferson were very concerned about that risk.

The author documents the rise of corruption and collusion between the Federalists Party that evolved into a large corporate elite, the Fed (a central bank that is actually owned by private shareholders of banking corporations), and government insiders. Those who opposed them by demanding checks on the issuance of currency, so that currency value could not be manipulated to favor the elitist few, were eliminated. Over 600,000 US citizens were killed and the cartel won out.

While the original intent of this powerful elite -- to totally dominate the private resource base and enslave the plebeian American citizen -- has yet to be fulfilled, hints lie all around that the time for its fulfillment may actually be close at hand.
