The profits of slavery were not without substantial risk. Other countries ended human slavery and eliminated the risk.
Congress created the Federal Reserve. Members get 6% profit after expenses. Anything over 6% is paid as a franchise tax to the US Treasury.
Congress regulates competitors to maximize the franchise tax.
This government created greed is not without risk. It has all but killed the economy. End the Fed and eliminated the risk.
Then we can go back to the normal greed and risk of the 18th century.
Free includes debt-free!
