“…shall be deemed guilty of felony, and shall suffer death.” — Penalty for debasing gold, silver or copper coins, Section 19, The Coinage Act of April 2, 1792
Had the Founding Fathers added just a few more words to extend the death penalty to people who didn’t work at the mint, they may have stopped the rise of the national banks, Federal Reserve, the unnecessary deaths of millions and significantly altered the course of history.
Two solutions remaining regarding banks:
Throughout the Western world the financial system has become an exploiter of the people and a deadweight loss on economies. There are only two possible solutions. One is to break the large banks up into smaller and local entities such as existed prior to the concentration that deregulation fostered. The other is to nationalize them and operate them solely in the interest of the general welfare of the population.—Paul Craig Roberts
