The US constitution says nothing about central banking, which means it does not authorize the existence of a central bank. Yet, "the constitution has been tortured and twisted even as we speak to allow big government to control our lives."

From the 2020 Supporters Summit, presented at the historic Jekyll Island Club Resort on Jekyll Island, Georgia, on 9 October 2020.
