Speaking of "the founding fathers" ...

I agree with your assessment, and I would like to try and add a little to it using the following excerpt:
"I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government to the genuine principles of its Constitution; I mean an additional article, taking from the federal government the power of borrowing."
The above quotation is from a letter by the then "founding father" Vice-President of the Republic of the United States Thomas Jefferson (to John Taylor), dated November 26th 1798. The full text of the letter can be viewed at: http://www.yamaguchy.com/library/jefferson/taylor.html
My lengthy research very strongly suggests that it was the failure of United States governments, then and since then -- leaving aside a relatively very brief period when Republican US President Abraham Lincoln very successfully did something of the "Thomas Jefferson" sort using his home-made "Greenbacks" during the American Civil War (before being assassinated just days after his side had won that extremely bloody and vicious war) -- to produce their own debt-free and interest-free money supply, that has the whole world (more or less) in the almighty "economic" mess it's now in: and which is of course much, much more than just an "economic" mess. More like a "f**k, fight, and bite" seething global cesspit of political, legal, and corporate corruption, crime, cover-ups, and impunity, I'd say?
"I mean an additional article, taking from the federal government the power of borrowing": this, in my opinion -- i.e. removing the power of "government borrowing" -- is EXACTLY the direction, in principle, that the Republic of Ireland Central Government (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) needs to head off in at the present time: and it needs to be quick about it!!
In other words, the Government of the Republic of Ireland needs to provide itself with its own debt-free, and interest-free money supply ASAP: for the purpose of funding of our own necessary and worthwhile projects, projects which have the support, and as much in the way of significant "direct involvement" as possible -- keeping in mind the "participation is the key to harmony" principle -- of "the people" of the Republic of Ireland.
Failure by our Government (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) to move smartly in this direction will mean more, MUCH MORE (in my opinion), and much sooner and more suddenly than many realise perhaps, of "government of the money-power-psychopaths, by the money-power-psychopaths, for the money-power-psychopaths": for projects that the "money-power-psychopaths" want and support: which of course includes non-stop, never-ending global warfare of EVERY conceivable kind imaginable; and, with people like our Prime Minister Enda Kenny helping them out by playing the role of a two-faced puppet -- corruptly and hypocritically trying, but failing, to convincingly talk out of both sides of his mouth at the same time -- while, in reality, being "remotely controlled" all of the time by "the banksters" who are "pulling the strings" from behind the scenes in places which I believe include the City of London and Wall Street (for example).
If our Prime Minister Enda Kenny was the only "puppet government leader" of the "Money Power Psychopaths" in the world at the present time, the overall situation for humanity generally would not be anywhere nearly so bad, mad, and dangerous. Unfortunately, just now, our Prime Minister Enda Kenny is a very long way off from being on his own (it seems to me). He appears to have lots of "puppet government leader" company at the present time -- very "bad" company as far as I'm concerned -- in several parts of the world: which is what is making the world such an extremely dangerous place: keeping in mind the present level of "thermonuclear weapons of mass destruction" being maintained, and daily added to, on land and sea; and, on the prowl lurking beneath the sea as well, for good measure and for the extra "safety" and "protection" we all need ("like a hole in the head"!!).
"Banksters, money power psychopaths, quadrillions of derivatives gambling debts":
