I forget specifically when Madison or Jefferson, might have been Jackson lol, threatened to not renew the charter of the Central Bank at that time, the head of the bank I believe (Robert Morris) threatened if that were to happen the Central bankers would contract the money supply sharply and not issue any new credit until the charter was renewed. They could do something similiar, I've thought of this very thing many times. But the response of the other DPers is exactly right. That is no excuse not to try our best, if we wait till everything is "fixed" before we try, then no one will care anymore because everything is hunky doorey now. We can't take that attitude. We have to fight RIGHT NOW!
