The Federal Reserve debased our currency. Take a look at your coinage. See any gold or silver there?
The founders of this nation knew that banks left to themselves, would substitute cheap metal tokens for real money. They had seen it happen in England, and they saw the results; massive unemployment and poverty for the people.
So the Founders created a monetary system based on government-issued currency of fixed real value, for the use of the people without interest. And the United States flourished.
Then the bankers wormed their way back into the system, bought the Congress and a President, replaced the government issued public currency with currency borrowed from their banks at interest... and debased the gold and silver coinage.
By that last act, every member of the Federal Reserve system (and their enablers in Congress and the Treasury) is in violation of Section 19 of the coinage act of 1792.
