    I almost chose "other" because what would have made this more interesting would have been to also see New Deal and Great Society programs in there as options. But even if they had been, the Federal Reserve is still the winner. We gave Congress the authority to create currency, not a private central banking cartel.

    Picked Indians because, while slavery is loathsome, it was not a uniquely American enterprise.

    I'll be honest, I didn't even register the Native American option. That's a deeper sin than any of it. Can't change my answer now though.

    I picked slavery because we are still living with it's effects 200 years later. Americans indians were robbed and treated as slaves so they are included in my pick.

    I don't think they were treated as slaves, as they were not plucked from their lives and forced to work. Slavery is a deprivation of liberty. The natives were deprived of life, liberty and property (the whole sha-bang). Their entire lives were destroyed in front of them and they were left with neither the means nor the property to realize any semblance of freedom or autonomy. I'm not excusing slavery, but nothing holds a candle to what my ancestors did to the native people of the land I now enjoy.

    Slavery would certainly be my second choice. Yes, we are still living with the ramifications of slavery. But what we did to the Native Americans is number one for me. The reasons the ramifications of what we did to them doesn’t affect us as much today as slavery is because the Native Americans as a people have been all but eradicated. They are too busy trying to merely survive as a people to take up civil rights issues.

    I truly believe that the extinction of the various tribes and their cultures is right around the corner. I realize that is the nature of the world, that societies rise and fall. But it is still America’s greatest sin.
