I'm by no means taking up for the federal reserve fractional banking style of doing things. I'm just saying I don't know if gold and silver standard is the key either. I love the sound of it, I really do. I think there will always be corruption no matter what government, or currency style we have. I'm sure even countries on the gold and silver standard in the past had problems with their economies too. Even America has had its economic troubles from time to time before 1913.
I mean what if the US. Decided to go on the gold standard? How much gold does the US have? I heard Ron Paul say we should audit Fort Knox, he doesn't even know if there's any gold there. lol
I don't consider myself ignorant, I just try to look at all angles here.
