    Price fixing doesn’t work, neither does a gold standard. A fixed rate of gold would cause the gold to flow in one direction and being hoarded somewhere. We need a free floating gold price where savers can save in golod and use currency in transaction. The currency doesn’t have to be backed by gold because the pricing will solve this. Google Freegold and read FOFOA.

    How about using Moon rock as the basis for currency value? One little rock is worth millions, requires less storage space and is easier to handle. It takes a large financial outlay to get more. It would encourage space technology advancement for other countries to try to get some. Gold is too common and easy to get. It’s right on Earth. You just dig it up. Moon rock is a little harder to come by.

    The idea of a gold standard is just stupid because the demand and supply of gold are NOT constant! This means that while putting up to ~30% or ~50% in gold might be a good idea, the holding of 90% or 100% in gold is for a central bank just a stupid idea.

    The only thing that makes a $1 bill different from a $100 bill is a couple zeros. The cost to manufacture is identical — which is the real problem — it is all too easy to print your way out of trouble in the short term. The real reason (I suspect) Nixon abandoned the gold standard was the true cost of Vietnam plus recession was shamefully high. We need a commodity based money if only to remove the money printing temptation.

    POLLS say he can. Secret MEDIA lies about? 46 states = 98% of DELEGATE counts & only 2 running BALLOT QUALIFIED in all 46? = RON PAUL & MITT. He always had a plan, Other 2 times he was not really running, He’s NOT running for re-election. 2012 RP is 100% all in RUNNING! This is a delegate count race. NEWTS finished. Put your money on the TX BIKE RACER. VOTE YOUR CHOICE. if needed go to Election BD & register GOP & vote = Dr PAUL ..pass this on

    if you choose any of the other candidates but ron paul then it means you do not want freedom or smaller government. sheeple want the protection and guidence of their shepards. i say ron paul will make this country strong again if given the chance and then our money will be worth something again. i can remember in the early 60′s going in to cash my pay check and asking for $20.00 in silver dollars because i liked the feel of having them morgan’s in my pocket they were heavy. and they were silver which is accepted in any country on the planet because of their silver content, and the government had no controle over my earned money, they could not say what it was worth because of the silver standards. now that’s real money. not this paper that can fall by the way side at any time and not be worth a cent. real people and not sheeple want to fend for them selves and want liberty, they want the value of their money to be valuable in all country’s and backed by gold or silver.

    YOUR government can do whatever it wants, doesnt mean the rest of the world will accept it forever. China and Russia are already trading with each other using their own currency not US$. India is buying oil from Iran using Gold and soon China will be too. The days of the US$ being the reserve currency are fast coming to an end. You cant fix the currency system because you cant even service the interest on accumulated debt with your taxes.YOUR CURRENCY IS TOAST!

    you can shut down the fed, attach ‘money’ to a shiny rock or assume that “free market” can regulate everything you still misinterpret the very nature of the societies and the financial regimes of the day. meet people with new stories, learn from them, clean up the government. sovereign (debt-free) money is a nations greatest opportunity — real public infrastructures, good services and fortunate people, this is ‘money’.

    ……….Since Romney now has 5x the islands purchasing power that YOU have, you will work for Romney. Obama still owes Bernake so he taxes both you and Romney to get back the 40 pieces of paper money + interest money which will have to come from the pre-existing gold money supply. This process continues to repeat itself until Bernanke has all the real gold in the money supply and everyone else is at he mercy of loans of paper gold created by Bernanke and distributed by Obama. The end

    Then suppose Obama asks for a “loan” from Bernanke of 40 pieces of paper gold and Ben approves the loan. Now there is a total of 80 pieces of “gold” in the money supply representing all the same goods and services that are on the island which means the VALUE of each piece of gold is worth half as much. Now Obams gives the money to Romney to “expand the islands credit”. Now Romney has 50 pieces of gold and YOU still have 10 pieces of gold. …………cont.

    But like I said to dlucas90, I think it IS possible for the government to “dilute” the gold supply–they just have to control the gold’s distribution. So my original question remains unanswered: Why can’t we just fix the currency system we have now instead of converting to a whole NEW system? Ron Paul wants to switch to a gold standard because he wants to reduce spending/debt and manage the budget better–but I don’t see why it’s impossible to do that with paper currency.

    EXPLAINATION FOR THE GOLD STANDARD IN A NUTSHELL
    Let’s pretend that YOU, Bernanke, Obama, and Romney are stranded on a desert island. Each of you has 10 gold coins making for a total of 40 gold coins which represent all the goods and services on the island (money supply). Now let’s say Bernanke is given the God-like ability to create paper money from DEBT (NOTHING) that has the same purchasing power as the gold coins and loan it out at interest. ……………..cont.
