Article 1 Section 10.
No state shall make anything but gold and silver coin tender in payment of debt.
I have known about this part of the Constitution of the United States for many many years. Yet I find it very interesting that the US Government as
well as state governments do not adhere to the Law they swore to uphold.
Nothing keeps government budgets in line better than sound money...better than a sound system of weights and measures. This is a concept and
understanding which is hardly taught in public schools through college levels.
Honest moneys...just weights and measures.
Any time a government can create moneys through whatever system they devise they will outspend the public and use/misuse this power to maintain
themselves in office against the public felicity and public welfare. It will always revert back to private felicity and against the public welfare.
The public will find themselves in competition with the government for goods and services in a finite collapsing market and against ever increasing
amounts of weaker dollars.
The public is always the competition against government largess and it is the public..or the private business which will be held back and government
interests will always come first...not the public felicity.
And government has the media shilling for them as well as the public school system..financed by government so they never teach you how this corrupt
system works against the public. They don't dare.
The problem is that the US government somewhere along the line switched from a system of just weights and measures in our coinage to a system of
unjust weights and measures. Not only in gold but also in silver. And now they have gone so far as to counterfeit the pennies. Scrape a copper looking
penny dated after about 1982 and you will find a zinc slug inside a copper clad coat. This is counterfeiting by the government.
In silver coinage ...when they minted 90% silver coins as money the dollar was twice the weight and fineness of a fifty cent piece. The dollar was
four times the weight of a quarter..and also 90% fine silver. The dollar was ten times the weight of a dime in 90% fine silver. The dollar in silver
was also 20 times the weight of a half dime coin and 90% fine silver.
When you stacked up two newly minted fifty cent silver coins next to a newly minted silver dollar...they weighed the same.
It was the same with four quarters..weighed the same as a newly minted silver dollar.
Same with ten dimes
Same with twenty half dimes.
It was a system of weights and measures..just weights and just measures.
It was the same with gold coinage...a system of just weights and just measures. Just balances. Right out of the Bible.
This constituted a system of just weights and measures just like measuring spoons or cups in Mama's kitchen.
It made sense..it was a linear system of weights and measures in silver. The system also made sense in gold...a system of just weights and measures.
Copper coins were for smaller denominations and the system made sense and was in copper to the pennyweight.
Remember ..these coins/coinage had on them In God We Trust because people knew that the Bible required a system of Just weights and measures..not a
measure great and a measure small...but perfect weights and measures. Just scales and just balances.
Today because we have educated intelligent and sophisticated men running our treasury and coinage systems we now have a Susan B. Anthony dollar which
is made out of copper/nickle and is 2/3rds the size of a fifty cent piece and yet claims to be worth twice as much. You have to go to public school to
get this stupid to mint something like this. Yet here we have an example of a coinage system which says on it In God We Trust and yet is obviously a
system of "UNJUST:" weights and measures...a measure great and a measure small.
What this means to people who can think outside the box in smarts and intelligence...is that somewhere along the line the US Government switched gods
to the god of unjust weights and measures and away from the God of just weights and measures. And furthermore the government never told anyone they
had done this to the public...to the nation.
This type of counterfeiting would be very difficult in gold, silver , and copper if the government had to make do in these metals...and not cheat.
The paper notes used to say on them down at the bottom..
"Will Pay To The Bearer On Demand"
Meaning the bearer can take the notes to a bank and get the gold, silver or copper. Meaning the note was not the money. This line "Will Pay To The
Bearer On Demand" is now missing. You can find it if you have any olde notes. This too kept the government from over printing notes..because the notes
could be called by the public...or the users. But it was not as sound a system of monies as was just gold, silver , and copper coins.
Hope this helps some of you in your thinking outside of the box of what passes for education today. The olde folks knew this as part of their every
day thinking. Why do you think olde people used to bite into the coins..to insure that you were giving them the real metal..for the money was the
metal..not the coin per se but the metal in the coin.
