    By a ratio of about 2 to 1.

    Says you. The founders voting on the matter favored the creation of a central bank by a ratio of nearly 2 to 1. Including both Washington and Hamilton. It was one of the first things this nation ever did under our Constitution, being created less than 2 years after the Constitution went into effect in the first half of Washington's first term, and the very first session of Congress ever.

    With Washington concluding that yes, it was indeed constitutional.

    And the courts never having found that either bank was 'unconstitutional'.

    Why would I or any rational person ignore the judgment of the founders, Hamilton, Washington, and 220 years of the courts contradicting you.....and instead override them all with your personal opinion?

    I can't think of a single reason.

    Meh......maybe. So far, most of what I've seen are lots of cuts and pastes. That doesn't necessarily denote any particular knowledge beyond the ability to hit 'Ctrl + C' and 'Ctrl +P'

    The first Congress was not the founding fathers. Idk why you 2 keep implying that.
    The "father" of the constitution was against it...
    Nowhere in the enumerated powers does it give the fed gov to establish a central bank. That is a states job.
    Skylar, it also wasnt the first session of the first congress. It was the third session.

    Hamiltons made up "implied powers" in the constitution was the biggest power grab in history.

    Yep. Typical lawyer. Ha. Most in D.C. are Hamiltonian, too. The only good news is we're probably near the end of fiat system. Never before in the history of man has a fiat system lasted this long and it's pretty close to popping. The dollar is worth near nothing. The Fed's losing control of the cost of money. And if we've been paying attention over the last decade, a buildup of international financial clearing infrastructure has been happening as other nations join the Asian and what used to be BRICS banks. We're also seeing some interesting space mergers where countries are partnering to put up satellites. That's what the so-called 'space force' is all about, don't let anyone fool you. Ha. Recall that the majority of Intelligence spying when they were caught was on the financial transactions of other nations.

    But that's getting a little deep.

    Here's a great quote taken from a letter from George Washington, written to James Madison on the topic.

    He said, and correctly so, ''No generation has the right to contract debts greater than can be paid off during the course of its own existence."

    The Fed's losing control of the cost of money.

    They lent money, overnight, and brought the rate back in line.

    Does it cost more than the current target rate for an overnight repo?
