Revolt in Minnesota

"Gold has been replaced, at the dictate of the State, by fiat paper--by pieces of paper issued and imprinted by the government."

"Imprinted by the government", you may rightly ask? The answer may surprise you.

    "These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government....

    The warning of Theodore Roosevelt has much timeliness today, for the real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over City, State, and nation... It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers, and every agency created for the public protection...

    To depart from mere generalisations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interest and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.

    They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make catspaws[1] of party leaders, use the leading men of private organisations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business...

    These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and magazines in this country."
    John Hylan, Mayor of New York 1927 (Former New York City Mayor John Haylan speaking in Chicago and quoted in the March 27, 1927, New York Times)

    [1] catspaw noun 1. a person used to serve the purposes of another; tool.

And, with that we now know who actually "governs" the so-called United States of America.
