Okay well we know what a fiat currency is right. That's sort of like what we have now but different slightly. A fiat currency is just paper or
something else, but it's not really worth anything. It's just ordered by the government to be worth something.
Okay but it doesn't matter what you replace the dollar with or if you do at all because a fiat currency is a fiat currency. It doesn't really matter
what design is printed on the front. It's still just paper.
It works just like monopoly money. It's only worth something when you're playing monopoly. Any other time it's just paper. The only difference is
that in real life you're playing monopoly 24/7 so it's always worth something. But the design you put on the front of the monopoly money doesn't
really matter because the money wasn't worth anything anyway. It was just used to keep score. Same with the US dollar.
All that matters is how much of it you have. If you have too much it becomes so easy to get that people have so much they won't work for it anymore.
This is called hyperinflation. Prices shoot through the roof.
If you have too little there's not enough going around to buy anything so prices fall because nobody is buying anything. That's deflation. That's
what we have now because the banks aren't loaning money so nobody can get their hands on it to buy stuff.
So the stores have to lower their prices to compete. But that's a problem because all businesses already took out loans in the past. They can't just
lower prices forever and still pay off the high dollar loans they'd already taken out before the deflation. Eventually the stores can't lower their
prices anymore, can't pay their loans anymore and they go broke.
You see, so I've heard a lot about a one world currency. That's about the worst solution you can have. If that one world currency, if the world
government goes broke, and it hyper inflates you're screwed because prices shoot through the roof, but there is no other currency to convert your
cash into to to start buying things again.
If the world government decides to stop printing it then nobody can get their hands on the one world currency and they all starve to death. In other
words the one world government would have complete control over everything. Just stop printing money and then put everyone in jail for not paying
taxes because they can't because the one world government won't print money. They could kill half the world off in a matter of months.
What you need are multiple currencies that compete with each other.
So, you wouldn't want to get rid of the US. Dollar. What you'd want to do is create three or four other currencies that all look the same except
maybe on the back right corner they'd all have a slightly different mark. But they wouldn't be regulated by the fed or the US government. Each one
would all be regulated by different states or entities.
Everyone would use them just like they use a US dollar now, but if whoever regulated one tried to print too much and hyper inflate that currency
everyone could just convert that for the other US dollars that weren't hyper inflated.
Then stores might stop taking one kind of the currencies if it became too inflated. Then you couldn't use them anywhere and so nobody would want
those. So they would become less popular and thus harder to find. The harder they are to find then they start to pick up value again and eventually
when they've picked up enough value they can be used as currency again. See, in a multiple currency situation like this, all the other currencies act
as an insurance policy for each other. One gets out of whack you can fall back onto another one.
This is why people are telling you to buy gold and silver. Insurance for when the one currency goes crazy.
Basically what I'm saying is a single currency is the cause of all this. We need multiple ones that can compete with each other so when one goes to
crap you can just buy another one and switch to that one before it goes too far out of whack. We need a currency that has to compete in the market so
that the market can regulate it basically.
However, when it comes to the debt. The US debt can never be paid because we're all broke. The only things we have in our accounts is worthless paper
right? Also, the debt is higher than the amount of money even in print.
It can never be paid off. You'd have to borrow it to pay it and then you'd still owe it. At some point we will have to default on it or simply roll
the presses and pay it off with worthless hyperinflated currency which is basically the same as not paying it at all.
