Ok, for a site of conspiracy theorists, i'm surprised no one has yet mentioned (or at least I don't think so, just skimmed) that a gold standard is a part of the private bankers plans - they already own most of the gold!! By destroying our wealth and then moving to a gold standard, they increase their power even more, especially if it's a world currency!! Do not fall for the gold standard as a solution to our currency crisis. Debt-free money issued by the real government is the solution, don't let anyone convince you otherwise.



The Rothschilds dumped their entire cache of gold sometime in 2009 so this is the time to get back on the gold standard as that was our standard that worked beautifully from roughly around 1790 to about 1980's. Our nation during that timeframe was untouchable as we were way more financially stable.

We don't need to return to any type of standard. They just need to repeal all legal tender laws.

They've put too much gold on satellites already and they will continue doing so, also why would they give us something 'precious' when money (of any currency) exists and can be created.

I am looking forward to end of the world trading cant wait to see what I can get for shoelaces and earwax candles

We fix the price of gold and silver to make them valuable or not. - J.P. Morgan, in a letter to his son.

Say goodbye to the middle class.

Just wondering if it was felt that this document was relevant to the discussion in this thread

H.R. 6550: National Emergency Employment Defense Act of 2010
download a pdf copy

It only dates back to December 2010, it could be viewed as a "blue print" plan for changes to the monetary system in the U.S. For example, it abolishes the Federal Reserve, fractional reserve banking, introduces public fiat money and as I understand it advocates no gold standard.

It will not become law at this time, but as I understand it, can be recalled for debate in the future should the desire be there.
