The Federal Reserve is a privately held corporation. It should be abolished. It should be replaced by the Central Bank of America, with a currency that is backed by gold. Return the power to coin and print monies to Congress, as is stated in our Constitution.
The David Ferola 9 step plan
Step1) Send your TAXES to a trusted congressman or congresswoman which maybe hard to find in your state. Prepare your taxes made out to the I.R.S check and envelope, get another bigger envelope and fit in inside write on this envelope to congress preferably to Ron Paul
203 Cannon House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
Phone Number: (202) 225-2831
Have congress unwrap the envelopes, and send it to the I.R.S
If you are asking yourself, what will this achieve first it can be used as a bargain chip however, congress cannot spend it or over take the fed reserve and bank system over night, nonetheless this will indeed give teeth/meat, back to congress.
STEP2) At every rally SHOUT “Send you taxes to Ron Paul!”
Step 3) OWNERSHIP: With meat and teeth congress can demand ownership of the Federal Reserve, as to how much, well a good start would be 45 percent, of course congress should have full control of the fed reserve. However, letting the opposition think you’re a fair man goes a long way.
STEP4) Demand FREE copy rights and trademark and Patents for first timers, this will stimulate the economy, I know of someone who created the spinner rims, but he had no money to protect it, guess what a company/businessman from other country got there first, 4 billion dollars a year was generated and people were put to work. Having someone get there first with a great idea first is nothing new but if small American inventors had an edge it would help greatly the economy. Imagine if everyone had a little dream supported by the government for first timers.
STEP5) At every rally SHOUT “free Patents free trademarks!”

All I can say on this one is “Good luck!”
This is too vague as it is worded. There are other concepts like abolishing the Federal Reserve, election funding reform, etc that make more sense out of what this is trying to say.
I hate money. I don’t like to work. Lets do away with money than nobody would ever have to work again. We could all be happy and have lots of time to sit around in drum circles and chant for world peace and stuff. The world would be perfect if there was no money.
Focus your protest. Demand something clear and simple.
A humble suggestion….
1) Public financing of all elections. All elections, from dog catcher to President of the united states.
2) Every qualified candidate draws from the same pool of limited money.
3) NO other monies/gifts/support is allowed. None. Not even your own.
4) All candidates, from local to national get free air time (the stations who want their FCC licenses can pony up for using our airwaves).
5) Any candidate, or elected official, who is convicted of taking any outside money/bribe/gift will be removed from office, or from running for office, for the rest of their lives and will never be able to run again.
The benefits of this are:
1) It will get money out of the process, totally.
2) Candidates will be judged on how well they handle a limited amount of money (good thing, wouldn’t you say?).
3) Candidates will have to run on their platform (it’s no small surprise that a majority of the winners are also who spent the most money).
4) Rich candidates can no longer buy their own election.
And the biggest benefit?
The best one?
Corporations and the Rich can stop rigging the game in their favor.
How do we get this? We demand it. We demand it over, and over, louder and louder, not stopping until we get it.
That is the only way out of this mess and the only way to change this country.
Go ahead. Tell me how it won’t work. Tell me how money equals free speech but, if you tell me that my idea won’t work then fine…
Offer up some better solution to the public.
Sorry but tell that to sweatshop workers in Bangladesh, tell that to Bolivians in in the 90′s who were face with the Betchel corporation trying to privatize their water, tell that to Iraqis who know it’s no secret that Iraq has some of the biggest oil fields next to Saudi Arabia and the northern end of South America in the world. All of those examples have capital interests.Their are at least aspects of capitalism that are seriously wrong.
Absolutely, Donn. And absolutely, 24-7.
Our economic system is so broken that we not only suffer the downside of capitalism but we’re also currently missing out on any of its benefits. In our current economy, an individual with a great idea can no longer easily find the significant capital they need to support that idea, nor necessarily gain access to their market due to the barriers of entry and massive power consolidation. Monopolies and Oligopolies have no place in any sort of beneficial capitalist system and the detrimental effects of that reality are made only worse by the current influence of those massive institutions on our democratic elections.
Our national politicians take bribes from corporations and the wealthy only to then support those interests in the behaviors that 24-7 mentions.
Why do we tolerate this inherent conflict of interest? How is this even legal?
This would not have stopped, e.g., Dick Cheney from going from White House Chief of Staff to U.S. Representative to Secretary of Defense to CEO and chairman of Halliburton to Vice President to …
The money — the hoarded capital — was out there, and agents of the government make sure it’s still there when they get out to collect their reward.
I vote for Donn’s suggestion. It would be a simple thing to enact but would solve so much. I think its time we separate business from state.
The current 435 members in the House of Representatives are too easily corralled by selfish interests that plague the capitol. We need to bring our Representatives back to our home districts (they vote electronically) and we need to maximize apportionment.
The current apportionment of the house is set to 435 members. At this nation’s founding there were approximately the maximum allowed* 1 congressman for every 30,000 citizens. If this ratio had not been abandoned today we would have a house of representatives with over 10,000 members.
It currently requires well over a million dollars on average to get elected to the House. An increase in apportionment would allow a people without millions of dollars or flexible morals to campaign and get elected to a seat.
Increases the difficulty of DC based lobbyists who meet with our representatives. (travel expenses , number of votes needed to corrupt a vote)
Makes gerrymandering districts a thing of the past.
Increases time available for representatives to meet with residents of their District.

I support public financing but it is NOT enough. When the wealth produced by workers is owned by the wealthy few, when the natural resources of our world are controlled by private corporate interests, when basic human needs (e.g.food, health care) are handled as for-profit ventures, what we have now (gross inequities, poverty, environmental crisis, etc.) is what you get. Private control over our resources leads to private power over we the people. That power is exerted via control over our resources which prevents us from using them for public needs, control over jobs, the buying of science, control of the news media, etc. Not just by determining who runs and who gets elected. We need to create a rational democratic economic system.
There is no system of law that is money proof so the title of this “demand” suggests pursuing a fantasy. The U.S. has been arguing about whether there should be a central bank since the founding. Generally we have done better with one than without one. The current “Fed” system put in in 1914 has worked fairly well. The problem is not with the Fed itself but with political influence dragging in bad directions. The solution to the problem, therefore, is to reduce the power of the moneyed interests on our political system. They want the Fed to protect their interests rather than the interests of the people. The best way to do that is to reduce the ability of the rich and powerful to buy elections and politicians as they now do. A well designed public financing system coupled with shorter election cycles (we are now several months into the 2012 election cycle, a rediculous amount of time – the Brits do it in less than two months) is the way to go.
