Cicero said: "The sinews of war? Infinite money."— Ron Paul (@RonPaul) August 7, 2019
Empires need "infinite money," or the ability to create money out-of-thin-air.
America was not intended to be an Empire. The U.S. Constitution does not grant the federal government power to create money out-of-thin-air.
This prohibition was to keep a lid on any attempts at Empire, and it worked...until 1913.— Ron Paul (@RonPaul) August 7, 2019
In 1913, Congress passed unconstitutional legislation that created a Federal Reserve, which is central bank monopoly that can create money out-of-thin-air for whatever government wants.
With its new "infinite money" creator, the "sinews of war" were put in place for the U.S. federal government and it has been at almost non-stop war ever since.— Ron Paul (@RonPaul) August 7, 2019
It has also become the biggest government in history.
