So we will see how serious these wacky politicans are about changing things. haha
Every thing needs to be exposed. Time for a true revolution just like before, things are worse than before there was ever a revolution but yet the american people would rather watch tv, and talk about sports. I do these things but i also get people engaged into whats going on in our lives. They are normally to lazy to keep a good conversation going lol.

the problem is that nobody ever asked to be a part of politics.


people were born free and want to enjoy their life and relax and have fun, and just be happy.

it isn't fair that everyone is forced to watch out for what their government might do to them next.


Nobody wants to be a politician.

peace.

“Clearly the Fed must be made too big to fail, and too big to fail requires a considerable amount of oversight,” said Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, who is chairman of the committee.

It's good Darrell want to see more oversight, but that is a completely stupid comment. You don't want to make it "too big to fail"... the Federal Reserve is big enough as it is. And you know what they say, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. The Federal Reserve needs to be minimized, decentralized, and made more transparent so that it will operate in a way which doesn't cause economic meltdowns via inflation and thus it will be operating in a way which wont lead it to fail along with the economy.

No, there is absolutely no reason at all for it to exist in any way shape or form,
As with many other things within our government, we already have an infrastructure in place to handle our finances. We just pretend it does not exist, but it does, it is called the US Treasury. Hand the finances over to the Treasury, let them do what they were designed to do.

This is an important bill for sure.

People should take the time to contact their representatives and be heard. If you can take the 5 minutes to sound of in this thread (as well as others on the same topics) then you can take the 5 minutes to use the automated email system and send your rep a message.

U.S. House of Representatives - upper right corner, find your Representative

U.S. Senate - upper right corner, find your Senator

Its time for people to move beyond just the "complaining about it" stage.

Its as easy as posting on these forums....

Yes, you're completely right, the ability to issue currency should be completely in the hands of the Treasury and not decided by a quasi-government entity such as the Federal Reserve. However... think about how much trouble it is just to get the FED audited properly, destroying the FED is a whole other ball game. One step at a time... Ron Paul wants the Federal Reserve gone too but he knows it's unlikely to happen, so he starts with what is possible, although still very difficult.

It is good to see that progress is still continuing. If anyone thinks too big to fail actually has any foundation in reality, they need to check out the Titanic. As the scale builds so does the risks and complexity. Getting in to find out just what is going on inside the Fed is an important first step to identify the conflicts of interest that do go on. With so much money at stake it is also highly political and influential as getting answers and getting the facts are different things.

With the skill, expertise and industry connections needed for managing an economy there are bound to be many close relationships amongst the banking and financial sector. While this has keep Wall Street afloat during all the recent economic dramas, it is paying a high price on the public and nation. Identifying the conflicts and finding ways to address them is a good approach to reinstate the national interest in the decision making processes.
