1743 – BIRTH OF THOMAS JEFFERSON, THIRD PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
"This institution (the Bank of England) is one of the most deadly
hostility against the principles of our Constitution…suppose an
emergency should occur…an institution like this…in a critical moment
might overthrow the government."
“And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more
dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending
money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but
swindling futurity on a large scale."
“Bank-paper must be suppressed, and the circulating medium must be restored to the nation to whom it belongs.”
