The Ninth Cicuit Court has been a hotbed of idiocy for decades.
Ron Paul has no idea what he is talking about. All one can say about him is that he would be a better choice for President than the current incumbent, but then even you would be too.
The Federal Reserve Banks are run and controlled by the Federal Reserve Board. The Board is, with just one exemption, composed of person's appointed by the President of the US with the advice and consent of the Senate. The one exemption is that the law, passed by Congress and signed by the President of the US, automatically makes the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York a member of the Federal Reserve Board.
All Federal Reserve employees are classified as US Government Employees. However, all functions of the Federal Reserve are not funded by Congressional Appropriations but by internally generated funds resulting from its Operations.
All profits Generated by the Federal Reserve System and all its entities are the property of the US Government. If, for any reason, Congress should liquidate the Federal Reserve System all, proceeds from that action belong to the US. The only funds the so-called stockholders of the individual Federal Reserve Banks (the individual member banks) would get are those funds they are required to deposit with the Federal Reserve by law and regulation as their reserve requirements.
I have already detailed this in another thread and not about to repeat myself here in detail.
The only suggestion I have for you is that in addition to the documents of Vatican II you add some basic text books that detail the history and legal structure of the Fed. Non of the nonsense material you have on the subject from Ron Paul or any other libertarian nonsense source qualifies as factual reading.
The monetary system of the US, since before the founding of the republic was, as it is now, a fractional reserve currency system and was far more likely to rise and fall on pure, unadulterated speculation than the system is today. And that, despite the fact, that gold and silver backed the system.
Jesus's driving of the money lenders from the temple has nothing to do with banking. They did not belong in the temple. His action had nothing to do or say with their activities as money lenders, but only with their operation in the Temple itself.
There is nothing usurious about a fractional reserve currency system. Look up the word usurious.
Who gives two hoots if any or all bankers are Jews. Or are you just anti-Jewish? The majority of bankers is this country, from its earliest days, has been White-Anglo Saxon Protestants. And these days, with a large sprinkling of Roma Catholics.
Utopian economic schemes have never worked, do not work now and will never do so. A simple fact that renders your last paragraph, laughable.
