I’d rather see it go away.
The problem is that the citizen’s own government, that is, the Treasury Dept, has turned over ITS ability to create money to a different entity.

This guy took one too many hits to the head. We ‘own’ Congress via voting, doesn’t stop us from voting ourselves more goodies. Owning the Fed has as much real influence as the idiots thinking Divestiture made any difference in the anti-Apartheid movement. Just an empty gesture, just like this.
