If you do away with the Fed, you have to replace it with some thing.

(Actually, the constitution says the congress has to do that kind of thing).

It is not as simple as every one thinks.

What is the replacement going to be?

So, apparently you favor a silver standard over a gold standard?

It is still congress' choice. The constitution does give them that power.

Free banking would make for an interesting world.

We may end up with a negative carbon standard.

Given Congress has the authority to coin money where does an unaudited Fed come from?

Congress.

I am not a big time supporter of the Federal Reserve system. However, if the fed is abolished, some thing must replace it. Under our constitution, the congress chooses what that replacement will be.

Which, is kind of silly, because the people actually vote on what the currency will be. The gov't, can force you to pay taxes in the currency of its choice, and can make a currency legal tender for debt, but all other transactions are free to personal choice. Most people in the US choose dollars, as a matter of convenience, but they chould choose cigarettes, wampum, or any number of things to serve as currency. Czarist paper rubles held their value better after the Russian revolution, even though they were worthless, simply because the people chose to accept them in preference to the Soviet ruble.

I kind of like the idea of competing private currencies, especially in our wonderful digital age. I seriously doubt that this, or any future congress will experiment in that area, however.

I did not say abolish;I said audit.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 10:13:07 AM EST
I certainly don't mind if the congress wants to order an audit of the fed. They could even make the results of that audit public, and not bother me.

Not too sure what that would actually accomplish, though.

Now, if we had competing currencies, (which we actually do, though not in a practical sense), we wouldn't need an audit, would we?

The Problem is lack of Accountability and Corruption.
Banks leveraging Money and giving Questionable Loans has maxed OUT the World Economy.
Nothing Backed the Money that was given out. Doesn't matter if its Printed Money or Gold.

It doesn't matter if WE had the Gold Standard the same thing would of happened because of the ALLOWED Corruption and Unaccountability.
Gold would just trade at $100, $1000, $5000 or whatever Price determined by Interest Rates by that Governing Body.
Representatives calling to end the FED are doing so for the Power.
Every Branch wants more POWER....Smoke & Mirrors

Bankruptcy Laws are in place for this reason, but OUR Government has Guaranteed those that can' t be; In order to Cover Up THEIR Screw Ups.

Inflation is caused to make Government Debt seem Less over time. Just in the past 30 years No ONE stopped the Insanity.

WE need a 'Governing' Body separate from the 3 Branches, that handles a much simpler system.
Every Dollar handed out has to be Backed by another Physical Dollar.
WE will return to real 'Values' by cutting out all the Middle Men.

Congress has to follow the Constitution.
You could still call it the FED, doesn't really matter, my point is that things are made complicated for a reason; Confusion.

The Treasury, the FED, Congress, Executive all should 'Hate' each other not 'Work together'?
Why no Checks & Balances?
They all played a Major role in this Implosion and are trying to cover their tracks.

The cost of goods is a constant; The Dollar has less value so it takes more to buy those Goods & Services.
All in the name of Government Debt that has made OUR Economy more 'Stable'; Right?

Simplify things so OUR dollar holds a real value, not an inflated one.
OUR Current system has proven to be easily Corrupted, Manipulated and Abused; WE need Accountability, NOT Secrecy; Checks & Balances

'Complex Problems' have simple solutions, it just involves Real Accountability.
Just my opinion

Yes, it should be. However, I don't want it done now. Look who would choose the replacement (and there would be SOME form of replacement), a whacked out Liberal as hell Congress. If things improve in 2010, MAYBE we can consider abolishing the Fed, but probably not until Obama is gone as well. Think about how it would turn out if done tomorrow...Obama would appoint some Czar to be in charge of everything, Congress would approve it, and we'd have some whack job in control of our banking system complete with former acorn drones to enforce their will. The Republicans in Congress would do a half-assed job of opposing it, and we'd end up worse off than we are now.

I have to agree with Dave_A on this. (I'm spitting the bad taste of that thought out of my head) Since this has been in the news, I've been talking to an attorney at the law firm where I work. He explained that congress not having the power to audit the Fed prevents them from manipulating it for political gain.

I could get behind this. There's no perfect solution. The complete absence of some sort of financial body was difficult in the first days of our fledgling nation. I can only imagine how much harder it would be today, what with our "global economy" and such. But there has to be a limited scope and specific agenda, something that I don't think our current version has. Hamilton seemed to do a good enough job. There will always be factors outside the control of the governing body, but history says, and common sense agrees, that the less government intrusion into the affairs of men, the better.

Link Posted: 9/19/2009 3:28:34 PM EST
Yeah, let's have the govt. create money out of thin air and charge us interest on it to borrow it. On the surface, sounds totally legit.
Nah, there would never be a massive debt no one could ever repay and would not shackle future generations with high taxation. Great plan!
Yeah, and it would end up being a massive control mechanism either. Cause the congress has ALWAYS proved themselves prudent stuwarts of the public funds. Let alone Obama, nah, he'll just spend til your drunk.
Hell, yes, this sounds GREAT!
Giving a bunch of damn lawyers a blank check book, sounds like a totally reasonable thing to do if your a socialist whore.
Now, if your a freedom loving american who wants to keep more than a small percentage of your income, it's a total shit plan. Really, who here is paying upwards of 50% taxation. Really, and your ok with that?!?!
Lick the polsihed wingtips if you want, but these fedres goons and their fag buddies in the IRS can take a hike.
If I ain't speaking de troof, then I'm tim foiled out. But I emplore you to go look at what the fed does and does not do.
Look for yourself. Fuck the haters, GO LOOK. Your getting skinned. Look at the official charter of the FED Reserve. Look at the law.
They create money at the request of congress. Where does that money come from?
