The Occupy Wall Street protests appears to lack a unified demand and I couldn't think of any more apt for a Wall Street protest or any with as great of a potential to change the future of our country than debt-free currency. Our nation's founders credited their debt-free currency, Colonial Script, for their robust economy while Europe was in recession. President Abraham Lincoln credited debt-free currency, the Greenback, for the North's victory in the Civil War. If the U.S. Treasury prints a dollar and pays that dollar to a U.S. soldier, I don't believe that U.S. taxpayers should owe a foreign bank that dollar let alone pay interest on that dollar. Currently, when the U.S. prints currency, it hands it over to the Federal Reserve, a private corporation owned by foreign banks, for no charge and then the Federal Reserve loans it back to the U.S. government and charges us interest on our own dollar. The appropriate demand for a Wall Street protest would be to END THE FED AND ISSUE DEBT-FREE CURRENCY!
