The value of our Dollar is shrinking. However, we can't place the blame entirely on the FED. The FED's policies do help decrease the value of the dollar, but I don't believe it's the primary factor. Both Republicans and Democrats spend like crazy. Our trade deficit is out of control. Out tax system does not encourage businesses to stay in the country. All of these factors including the FED drives down the value of the Dollar. I used to be a Republican but can no longer support this party. Libertarian is my party of choice now. We must reject socialism and embrace limiting government and private charity.
