    The United States is a prosperous nation of hardworking individuals. The Federal Reserve is a vampire sucking the life out of this great country. When we end the fed, our nation will return to prosperity as will all individuals. END the FED

    Ron Paul has done everything one man CAN do. He has voted against raising the debt ceiling consistently, and has headed the congressional committee that explored spending by the FED. There is a reason Bernanke is afraid of him. Not to mention the fact that his message has spread to the masses and even the other presidential candidates are starting to agree with him. He is also leading the fight to audit the Fed. I would say a lot has changed. Do your research. RON PAUL 2012!

    Also spentfromnz, we know how much gold is in the ground, so theoretically the only chance for inflation to creep in on a true gold standard that of pre civil war type would happen only if there was an unanticipated discovery of new gold stock.

    Gold’s value is properly balanced and only so much of it can be mined proportionally speaking vs. trillions and trillions of dollars such as in Zimbabwe and here in the US. The answer to your concept that companies will just keep mining gold and inflate the economy is not exactly correct b/c the economy will be growing at a faster rate than the mining of gold b/c you can only mine so much gold, you can print unlimited money out of thin air that only creates inflation….

    Paul and the likes..

    You simply refuse the only Mathematic Prescription for what you have declared you actually want.

    Austrian economics, Mises, Hayek are no help, come to think about it any system that still has USURY or INTEREST %%%%% as part of it will also FAIL us as never in history have any precious metal monetary standards either sustained industrial production requiring greater circulations; nor is it possible for them to arrest multiplication of indebtedness by interest.

    The only currency which we should be considering is mathematically perfected currency‚ As there is one and one only solution to inflation and deflation; to systemic manipulation of the cost or value of money or property; and to inherent, irreversible (and therefore terminal) multiplication of artificial indebtedness by interest… thus it is only by eradicating altogether the latter costs; manipulation of the cost or value of money or property; and inflation or deflation.

    The so called central banking systems The Fed, BOE, ECB, World Bank, IMF of the world in fact never earn this “money,” not only because they produce no product or actual service for it, but because the “money”

    they pretend we must borrow from them is no more than our own promise to pay. Nor are they actual creditors, for on the contrary, they give up nothing for our promises to pay, and only intervene upon our commerce to pretend the justification for dispossessing us of all our production is no more than their unassented authority to no more than publish our promissory notes, at no practical cost to themselves whatever. They thus collect, just in ostensible principal, so much as all the wealth which is ever subjugated to these obfuscations, only as if this mere publication of our promissory notes made them actual providers of credit; and only as if any resultant debt is ever actually owed to them.

    They further subject these lies then to interest, as if actual risk existed in the negligible costs of no more than publishing our promises to pay. All these intentional falsifications of principle then are such blatant, self evident, and ever demonstrable facts that it is amazing any truly free and just people would ever tolerate their fatal subjugation to these obfuscations for nought. Evidently too, this is the common observation of today’s vast pretended representation, for never were these purported principles subjected to the assent of a knowledgeable, intelligent public; nor is it possible they were ever passed by one, for it is intellectually impossible to intelligently ensure our demise for no more than handing over the publication of our promissory notes, the very fulfillment of which is ultimately even made impossible by the breaches of principle in the resultant, wholly unnatural, ever unjustified, and fatal arrangement.

    Pretended representation therefore would hardly achieve these purposes if a knowledgeable public discovered that the lies of pretended economy invalidate its every asserted principle; that none of this has even the least power to serve us in any way; that the allegiance of the government of every republic owes to the very perpetrators who, by taking so inconceivably from us, readily install and enforce usurpation in every vital office and controllable media. The perpetual, concerted evasion of accountability before us therefore is no accident, it is instead a calculated, vital accessory to the most serious, arrogant, and repulsive crimes in history.

    Gold and Silver coinage is hardened by adding 5% copper to the gold and 5% nickle to the silver making them hard enough for circulation use…

    We don’t have to actually use precious metal bullion coins… Gold and Silver Certificates are “convenient” forms of holding a gold standard…
    They only need to be redeemable at a local bank if desired. Banks would be required to hold 100% reserves for all notes in circulation, thus stopping the FED DEAD!

    New money supply would be continuously expanded by the Government by using TAX collected money to buy newly mined gold and silver bullion at market price and then minting the same of just holding it in Ft Knox as a reserve for emergencies, like foreign invasion of our country!

    The minted currency would be distributed throughout the country and ANY bank, S&L, Credit Union, etc could hold and store the gold for redemption.

    This totally different than DEBT CREDIT! Loans would be made with the consent of the SAVERS who have deposits at various institutes. The owners of the reserve savings would be apprised of the risk and given the option to set the risk rate of return on THEIR saved money. Not money created out of Thin Air like the FED currently conducts its business…
    This lending practice would become a “decentralized” local lending system where regional banks, counties and states would cooperate to fund large projects with the Consent of the Governed who own the wealth. And not at the capricious whims of Ben Bernanke or other Banksters.

    There is a huge problem with using gold as currency, and that is the one of authentication. How does the average person ensure that what they are receiving in payment is actual gold.

    Also, one of the reasons he is against cash money is the Fed printing more of it and causing inflation. However, companies are continually mining gold, which increases the amount of gold in circulation , and theoretically would have the same effect.

    Ron Paul lied here. The Constitution does NOT require a gold standard. Article I, Section 10 says, “No STATE [emphasis added] shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts…” There is no such restriction on the federal government anywhere in the Constitution. Sadly, Maria Barteromo did not call him on this, perhaps not knowing the facts herself.

      What a minute…
      BUT…
      Article 1, Sec 8:
      “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

      To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;”

      Are not our coins devoid of silver content and DEBASED? Shouldn’t we considered the Federal Reserve Notes as “COUNTERFEITS” since they are NOT fixed standards of weight and measure?
      AND
      That paper notes are not “COIN MONEY” with regulated value???

      SO YES, the Constitution DOES require a gold and silver coin standard for our money!
