What is our Independence Day actually celebrating Independence from? Was it breaking away from England? In looking closer we find it was breaking away from the monetary system imposed by England…The Currency Act which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest.
After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.
“The refusal of King George III to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution.” — Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father
As we approach our Independence Day and recommit to our founding principles we imagine what it was like that day long ago…
As children were guided by parents at our founding, today we are fighting to continue that parental connection to learning as we oppose Common Core, the Federal intrusion and take over of local control of our schools.
Our Founders offer us inspiration to face the challenges we have today to honor our Republic and all those who sacrificed to continue our Constitution and honorable service to our Country.
Will you be putting up the flag?
Blessings to you and your family and our Country!
