The United States of America was founded on the political principle that governments are instituted among men, "deriving their powers from the consent of the governed" for the purpose of preserving their rights which entail "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." It is the people, the governed that are to be vigilant in making necessary corrections to their government to make sure these rights are not trampled upon. The list of grievances against England are listed within the Declaration of Independence. One of which is, "for imposing taxes upon us without our consent."
If we as Americans believe in our constitution and the the Declaration of Independence which outlines the principles of liberty that should be each and every Americans conviction, then why aren't we voting as a block to outlaw Usury, the charging of interest on debt? Is not Usury a form of taxation without our consent? Is not the charging of interest on debt destructive to our rights of "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?"
