Thanks. I asked my congressman to co-sponsor it since there aren't any co-sponsors yet.

It is absolutely IDIOTIC that WE THE PEOPLE should have to pay "interest" to the Federal Reserve bank for money that they are printing out of thin air. How DUMB does Ben Bernanke think we are???? As per Usual, Ron Paul is the only one who "gets it". You'd think by now there would be several similar bills being proposed if anyone else had a clue up there in D.C.

Apparently, pretty dumb since we have been doing it for quite awhile. D.C. seems to like this relationship.


Thanks for the info.

The American People are just as dumb as all the rest in the world.... For essentially the last century and a half centralized banking has ruled the land we call America and the only few powerful enough to do something about it were promptly removed from existence...... And all along you have not heard one single peep from THE PEOPLE about being held hostage and terrorized by centralized banking..... EVER !

Hear that noise ?????? I don't either..... that's the people fighting for their freedom against the world banker enslavement cartels...... YA..... RAISE THAT DEBT CEILING SOME MORE..... To infinity and beyond I say ! Hell.... why do we have a debt ceiling if every time the issue comes up it just gets raised anyhow in the name of some BS fear mongering collapse ?? Which WILL happen eventually anyhow as we are dealing with fiat currency. Why keep having an argument over kicking the can further down the road. Lets just make it simple and take the can out of the game all together. Apparently nobody really cares how much the gov spends anyhow. Historty is proof of that !

This country lost it's way shortly after it found itself. Didn't take long before the utterly stupid got herded and led to slaughter by centralized banking AGAIN did it ?! America will get what it's got coming no doubt about it..... No ponzi scheme lasts forever. Every kick of the can increases the pain for ALL when the game ends..... and it will.

Hmm... an interesting idea... I rather we made the Federal Reserve illegal and disband it and that way, no debt is owed because they don't exist anymore? Right?
