Unconstitutional. You fail. Only losers support ridiculous ideas like wealth redistribution. They do so out of envy and anger at those who have
actually made something of themselves.
I have no idea what you're talking about. Besides, you're not a capitalist, are you?
Do you have a trust fund?
Are you a venture capitalist?
Are you an international banker?
The only thing unconstitutional around here is your diet.
The history of the U.S. showcases Thomas Jefferson wanting a publicly owned central bank, & Alexander Hamilton wanting a privately owned central bank.
It’s history, lost history.
“Bankers are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out & by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of
our central bank system, there would be a revolution before morning. If the central bank continues to control our currency, receiving our public
monies, & holding thousands of our citizens in dependence, it would be more formidable & dangerous than the naval & military power of the enemy. It is
not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government … More than 8 million dollars of the stock of this bank are held by
foreigners … Is there no danger to our liberty & independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? If government
would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its favor alike on the high & the low, the rich & the poor, it would
be an unqualified blessing.”
~ President Andrew Jackson, 1829-1837
“Banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of
their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks & corporations that will grow up around will deprive the people of all property until
their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks & restored to the people,
to whom it properly belongs.”
~ President Thomas Jefferson, 1801-1809
“Whoever controls the money of a nation, controls that nation & is absolute master of all industry & commerce. When you realize that the entire
system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation &

“Capital must protect itself in every possible manner by combination & legislation. Debts must be collected, bonds & mortgages must be foreclosed as
rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile & more easily governed through
the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers. This truth is well known
among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
“By dividing voters through the political party system, we get them to expend energies fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet
action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned & successfully accomplished. ~Aug. 25, 1924 USA Banker’s Magazine
