Overview: In America, it had been a long hard struggle since the Whisky Rebellion, and "We the People" were losing.
A hundred years ago, President Wilson and Congress sold us out to the bankers. President Eisenhower’s warning about the military-industrial complex had gone unheeded. Now the country found itself trillions of dollars in debt, the dollar virtually worthless, and half the population on the dole.
