Money supplies _must_ be able to expand. Seriously, watch the documentary. I 
wish everyone would.

170 years ago, the common people understood this stuff. That's how Andrew 
Jackson won the presidency. His singular campaign goal was to abolish the 
privately owned central bank, which he did quite thoroughly, and the common 
people understood why it was necessary and wanted it. He did such a good job 
that it took over 70 years for the bankers to install another private central 
bank (the same, deceitfully named, privately owned "Federal Reserve" bank that 
we have today). Note, 70 years is at least 3 generations--enough time for the 
common people to forget. It's since been nearly 100 years since the fed was 
put in--almost 5 generations. No one remembers this stuff. It's a matter of 
education, and they aren't teaching it in schools...

It boils down to two problems:
1) Privately owned central banks loan debt-based currency to nations.
   (Private banks can wield control over it's debtors. Don't be daft
    and brush this off as "conspiracy theory"--there's no theory to it, it
    is fact.)
2) Fractional reserve banking allows banks to control the money supply.
   (Thus they can facilitate transfers of wealth to them--the rich get richer)

There are very specific, factual examples of this in the documentary, relevant 
to us today.
