I believe (KNOW) that banking institutions are more dangerous
to our liberties (Freedom) than standing armies.
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 [the banks] will deprive
( Enslave) the people of all property until their children
wake-up (Chained in Irons) homeless ( Serfs) on the continent their fathers conquered.
The issuing power (Right of the People to Rule Themselves) should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
