    I say we offer them a choice:  either we can take back control of currency, or they can accept tax hikes, a crackdown on offshoring of both money and jobs, and severe restraints on how much money they can pour into campaigns.

      extremely wealthy, however it is wrong to scuttle a better reality for students and young people because you think we need money from rich people to pay for the socially beneficial spending.

        Politically, I mean. Tell them they can accept the New Deal--or we'll take matters into our own hands, in this case by reasserting control over our own currency. That's something they really really won't like. That's the choice. They don't get to choose option C, which is "continue to fuck everyone over and send the country down the drain."

        What I like about your proposal, among other things, is that, deployed correctly, it would make them realize exactly how fucking good they've had it under the New Deal.
