The furthest I could go is how Wikipedia states that it is a,
"quasi-public (government entity with private components) banking
system".  Quasi-public indeed.

Really?  Gee, right here it states that, "The Democratic Party traces
its origins to the Democratic-Republican Party, founded by Thomas
Jefferson..."

That's because modern day Democrats have abandoned their original
liberal (as in liberty) origins and are now the "Progressive" party of
American Socialism.  If you subscribe to today's Democratic views,
then of course you wouldn't agree with the liberal views of Jefferson
(or really any of our founders).
