I say yes, I feel that the Founding Fathers KNEW what they were doing when they wrote it in the constitution (Article 1 section 9) saying that states
can only accept currency that is backed by or is gold or silver.
Reason being...it's more stable, no rampant inflation, such as what happend to the continental note, and what's happening now.
The above link is an index of some good articles pertaining to why the Gold Standard is good for US, not the bankers however, who make their money on
peddling credit with money that doesn't exist (fiat money)...but for the citizens, whom the government is SUPPOSED to be watching out for, the gold
standard is the best.
The above index also discusses how to properly returning to the Gold Standard, without a major depression or inflation.
Anyways...think on it, this is worth discussing, since the Constitution still says that we must be on a gold/silver standard, which means that this
government since april 28th 1933, has been legitimately unconstitutional
