Russo talks about his film "America; Freedom to Fascism"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1465ygw5HU
I agree with what he says.. the Fed is bad, people's taxes go to pay off interest that they should never have to pay.
It's great stuff.
But let's be clear, this is Russo telling everyone how the system should be run (or not run, same difference) - the 1% telling the 99% - and it's never going to happen unless he gets the majority of Americans to agree with him.
He would have been happy to disband the Fed via the democratic process unless he is advocating violent revolution.
Yes American is a republic, but the republic is and always has been tied into a Congress and Congress always reached decisions via voting.
The decision to declare American independence was made after a vote at the 2nd Continental Congress (unanimous but the principle remains).
America is a republic democracy, the majority has always decided for the minority, right from day one.
I repeat however that Russo was entirely right about the Fed and the growth of Fascism in America, but outside of violent revolution the alternative is peaceful revolution using democratic principles in an American Congress.. like it always has been.
