Michelle personally believes that banks have committed and continues to commit a fraud against us all with predatory loans, robo-signed documents to support foreclosures and hides behind securitized documents to obfuscate and confuse all of us. Thomas Jefferson said it best ” If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
