Okay, please go easy on me. I'm just starting to get into economics as a hobby, to learn more about what's going wrong with our once so proud nation, America. Where did we take a wrong turn? I've heard that it started back in 1973 when the production of Federal Reserve Notes increased... If the private Federal Reserve System is "unconstitutional" - in question, why don't we do something to get rid of it? What other system of currency should we be using instead? We owe so much money, how will we ever come out of it? I've heard that if every single working American were taxed 100% of their income, that wouldn't even pay the interest in our debt alone. Is this true? What are our chances of actually coming out of this? Are we going to repeat the roman empire falling? I'm sorry for so many questions, I just want to know. I love my country very much and I wish there was something we can do to stop our much predicted and spoken about "falling".
This is my first post on this forum.
