July 1st 1966 tlie national debt a a re

aterest atoae $J, G30, 097, 104 lacking io
round number only $240,000 ef paying
the entire debt in ieterest money. Dur
ing a similar period we paid the national
hanks $3, 249,374, 650, or m, 138,476,
31 more than the entire cost of the civil
war. Vhy did the government, W rath
er the people, who constitute 1 he govern

tional bankent? As the,, Bankers tell us
in order to furnish a sound "safe "and
"staple currency" and that currency rests
on U. S. bonds an J the people are back
of the U. 8. bonds. If so, why should the
people pay the national hanks over three
thousand millions of dollars in 71 yean?

anything, while the national bank note
is based on bonds, and interest bearing
bonds must first exist as a basis or na
ttonal bank notes. The second important
fact is that national bankers get tlte oar
tional bank notes issued to them by the
government at an annual rate of interest
of one per cent and they loan this money
to the people at from six to twelve per
annum. What the bankers want is ;or
the government to farm out to them at
one per cent per annum, the privilege of
famishing the money necessary for socie

propostion as this for, mind you, the bill
sow before congress reduces the annual
rate of interest to the bankers from one
per cent to one-qnarter of one per cent
This same class, the bank ring wanted
to get rid of silver for the same reason,
viz: That it might have an enlarged
field for its money, the national bank
notes. And now the bankers are trying
to get rid of the greenbacks for the same
reason. They want the exclusive privi.
