Since it's inception we have had endless inflation. Or put another way, endless devaluation of our currency. This has led to massive increases in the costs of everything and we are now at the point where the next generation is demanding everything and someone else pay for it.
The reality is these same people along with us should be demanding an end to the fed and an end to all progressive programs and entitlements.

We also need to return to the FF original intent in the constitution. Very few amendments should remain. Voting should be returned to just land and property owners paying tax. An end to the direct taxation of pay. Government employees should pay a tax on their salaries to cover their costs. Gov overall should be reduced my about 80%.
All welfare and entitlements gone. get rid of the 17th and enforce the 16th as it should be enforced. It did not give congress the power to tax peoples pay.

So the questions that come to mind are first and foremost, how do we get rid of the fed. As Edwin Viera pointed out, congress does not have the authority to delegate any of its responsibilities to any other agency or private entity. At the time the fed was created congress know this essentially removed the power from the people and put it in the hands of congress who could just ask the fed to loan it money to create social programs. At the time Gold was our currency and in limited supply so borrowing was needed. Nowadays our currency is worthless paper so there is really no argument for keeping the fed anyway. If congress wants to print currency let them. they can destroy the dollar on their own without paying interest on debt. That would also eliminate the need for taxation since Congress could just print whatever they needed. Of course a return to the gold standard would be what we would all prefer.

How do we get rid of all the useless Gov agencies that are spying on every American including journalists and politicians? How do we get rid of the Patriot act? FBI? DOJ? CIA?Put an end to the war machine and military industrial complex?

Just food for thought.

I have pondered that question for 40 years.

What is the solution? We'd get a Federalized "central bank" manned by corrupt bankers who would essentially do the same thing. Our society is so far gone and filled with selfishness, corruption and greed that I think we can't fix it. It's about time for a comet to hit and "reset" everything (2029!).

Balanced budgets and the same tax rate for everyone.

And people need to pay attention to more than who we vote for in the White House as congress is the true seat of power.

Mass media is the true seat of power. Just think how they can manipulate the election process (assuming we really had one) and force elected officials to tow the line for the banksters.
And the left tells it's Fed savvy followers it's crony Capitalism. It is both. Left vs. Right is just a distraction.
