The Great Debasement: The 100-Year Dying of the Dollar and How to Get America's Money Back

Overview

After 100 years of deliberate debasement, the U.S. Dollar is dying. Our politicians have deceptively siphoned off so much of its value that a 2012 dollar has only two pennies of the purchasing power of a 1913 dollar.

This Great Debasement of America’s money is by far the largest confiscation of wealth in world history—and you, your children and your grandchildren are the ones on the losing end of this century-long policy.

Overview

After 100 years of deliberate debasement, the U.S. Dollar is dying. Our politicians have deceptively siphoned off so much of its value that a 2012 dollar has only two pennies of the purchasing power of a 1913 dollar.

This Great Debasement of America’s money is by far the largest confiscation of wealth in world history—and you, your children and your grandchildren are the ones on the losing end of this century-long policy.

The Federal Reserve System, created by Progressives in 1913 to give America an 'elastic' money, has taken on such enormous and far-ranging powers that it has become 'the fourth branch of government' that killed the gold-backed dollar, and replaced it with an impostor currency, a central cause of today’s dangerous economic problems.

On the 100th Anniversaries of the 1912 Progressive takeover of America and 1913 imposition of the Fed and income tax—-still working together synergistically to transform the U.S.A.—- we expose, and show how to reverse, the Progressives' Great Debasement of America.
