The day they gave Congress to power to borrow, we were sunk.

1792 was the first meeting of Congress.

What did they do? Create the Fist Bank of the United States.

Agents with knowledge that Congress intended to honor Revolutionary War Bonds at par found un-wary citizens who sold at 10 cents on a dollar.

Congress richly rewarded their cronies.

Congress continues to this day to borrow from creditors to pay cronies. $17 trillion and counting.

Free includes debt-free!
