– Sen. Barry Goldwater (Rep. AR)

“From now on, depressions will be scientifically created.”

“The Federal Reserve bank buys government bonds without one penny…”

– Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency (12 years) June 10, 1932

“I have never seen more Senators express discontent with their jobs….I think the major cause is
that, deep down in our hearts, we have been accomplices in doing something terrible and
unforgivable to our wonderful country. Deep down in our heart, we know that we have given our
children a legacy of bankruptcy. We have defrauded our country to get ourselves elected.”
– John Danforth (R-Mo)

“These 12 corporations together cover the whole country and monopolize and use for private
gain every dollar of the public currency…”

currency… I do not like to think that any law can be passed that will make it possible to submerge the gold standard in a flood of irredeemable paper currency.”
– Henry Cabot Lodge Sr., 1913
