    It’s not that gold is worthless, I don’t think even FED proponents or Bernanke claim it’s worthless, it’s just not money because it is not a legal medium of exchange. I can’t go get a whopper combo with fries and a coke with a chunk of gold. And yes, paper money can decline in value, but it can also increase in value.

    Ron Paul doesn’t always say “FUCK YOU, BERNANKE.” But when he does, he asks him if gold is money.

    The media is telling us what to think people. If people were smarter and if the media hadn’t completely ignored this man then maybe we would have the honor of calling him Mr. President. It’s 1984 all over the place! it used to be a distopian work of fiction, but now it’s fucking reality. Everywhere you look, there’s tons of “security” camras all over NYC; there’s NSA bugging our every move, the government’s getting us, it’s time to get our fucking rights back! revolution my friends, speak out!

    Gold is one of the most useless forms of currency out there and is totally unacceptable for anything other than a third world economy…It’s rarity creates an artificial cap on economic growth, and unlike paper currency (unless you count snorting drugs with a rolled up bill), it has practical uses such as electronics and medical equipment (which will have to suffer in quality or become insanely expensive with gold as a currency). If you really want to hasten the fall of the US pick gold…

    But also the none Gold backed country which mostly is 2nd or 3rd world are forced to privertise their national assets and the Gold backed currency eventually takes that over.

    Honestly… The Federal Reserve needs to be shut down… The dollar needs to be backed by gold or silver again. People should take all their money out of these “Too Big To Fail Bankters” and put it into their local Credit Union.
    And I could go on and on and on…

    *weigh as much.

    Look, man. It’s all about supply and demand. When talking about currency, whatever the people decide on to be used as money, that object becomes the medium of exchange.

    Despite what these paid-for scholars will tell you, gold and silver isn’t anymore useful than paper money. The whole reason people started using paper money is because it was convenient. Carrying around gold and silver was a burden, and so people made a demand for something that didn’t weight as much, in terms of currency.

    *Why do you think governments are always selling off their gold and silver to each other–the books are cooked. Ancient goldsmiths did the same thing back in the day.

    Google “Fort Knox Fake Gold Reserve” The US dollar has a finite amount here and over seas. Why do you think their is electronic transactions made out of thin air, that got the economy in to this fine mess.Gold would be ideal for major purchases, for every day items or smaller you would use silver.

    Assuming there’s enough gold to go around. You people act like gold is a finite resource. Why do you think these crooked bankers raid each others stash for? If there was enough gold to go around, Fort Knox would still have reserves!

    That was an interesting exchange. Although it seems they both may have missed the point.

    we dont actually have to carry gold, its just that each dollar the fed prints should be backed by gold instead of these crooks printing money out of thin air worth nothing , and lending it to the stupid ass government with interest, . it is impossible to pay off , the fed needs to be shut down and its chairmen exucuted along with their families

    Federal Reserve needs to control the gold so it can issue its paper currency and inflate its cost. If every one paid in gold there would be no need for the Federal Reserve or banks.
    Granted you would have heavy gold in your pocket but your hand gun in your side holster would even out the weight.
    Ron Paul for the next President!

    I agree with you there, just because individuals have the lack of knowledge about it doesn’t make it untrue. It does sound a lot like a conspiracy, but like you said once you look in to it and do the research its all there. Then its just a matter of putting it all together. There’s even been an attempt at an audit and what they found was the FR was “missing” trillions, same goes for the IRS. They’re stealing from us right under our noses. So long as we think we’re free its not a problem right?..

    Yeah … and once in a blue moon I tell select people that if it sorta comes up and I feel the time is right. I mean, I hate to sound like “Mr. Conspiracy” guy …but essentially it’s all true. Some agree, some do not, some say I am exaggerating. As I tell them … look … what I am telling you isn’t some sort of way out “theory” or odd ball opinion. When you break it down, cut through the fat … it is what it is … a factual thing.
