The gold standard never dies
by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
*** begin quote ***
John Maynard Keynes thought he had pretty well killed gold as a monetary standard back in the 1930s. Governments of the world did their best to help him. It took longer than they thought. Gold in the money survived all the way to Nixon, and it was he who finally drove the stake in once and for all. That was supposed to be the end of it, and the beginning of the glorious new age of paper prosperity. It didn’t work out as they thought.
*** end quote ***
“We, The Sheeple” have to change our thinking. Fiat currency — paper is money because the “King” says it is — is nothing more than an IOU from the politicians and bureaucrats. They have no wealth; they can only spend what they steal from someone else.
Repeal the “legal tender” laws. Let the people choose what they will consider to be money.
Kill the FED.
