You said: "In some ways it's easier than facing the daunting task of trying to work with the system we have using what power we do have . . ." I've asked you to describe that power that you said we do have. You have yet to answer. All you've done so far is avoid the question, and instead, voice your disapproval of any one who describes the problem. So, back to the issue. It is true that Congress can delegate one of its duties to another body. But where in the Constitution can we find that Congress can turn over its duty to create currency to another body who is going to charge interest on the money it creates? The US dollar is a product of the American government. How is it that that the creation of that product (money) has been given over to an institution that will charge us interest for the use of our own money? There is about 1.5 trillion dollars in circulation today. Since the debt is payable in Federal Reserve Notes, how can the $19 trillion national debt be paid-off with the total Federal Reserve Notes in circulation? This is a perpetual debt that can never be paid off, but only increased. Am I mistaken when I say that when the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913, the power to coin and issue our nation's money and to regulate the value thereof was transferred from Congress to a Private corporation, and that this country now borrows what should be our own money from the Federal Reserve (a private corporation) plus interest, and that the debt can never be paid off under the current money system of this country? Now, if you care to offer a solution by way of telling us about the power that we do have, then go ahead.
