i know it's a radical idea, but why can't you print your money.
You're American, you have the same right to print the money as the next guy. it its not copyrighted, it can't be as it belongs to the public.
if it was then it would mean that it belongs to someone, it is the property of someone else, hence not the American people, not yours.
You say it's illegal, then i would say its unconstitutional to a constitution that all men are created equal, if it was true then they couldn't pass
a law preventing you from doing what another american is doing, printing money.
It is just another way of mining for gold, when you mine gold it is yours. Instead of mining you are printing it, printing wealth, the same
wealth that every American has access to. Who says you have to work for it for someone else to give it to you.
If it's not illegal, it is what keeps those in power to those who don't. Challenge it in court and if it is true, the republic is right and the
constitution true, then you will walk out a free man.
If not, you will know that it is not. But those in power will never allow it, and at the very least you will be allowed to print your own money,
the exact same one used by every American.

It sure is illegal, it is not owned by the federal government, state government, municipal government, it is not even owned by you or China.
The Federal Reserve owns it.
Not too many people know that about their own government...I get labelled Anti-American but I seem to know more about their government then them...
So, when the US government wants money, the Treasury Department prints bonds (promissory notes aka debt obligations) and "sells" these to the
Federal Reserve (private banking concern), which than "gives" the US government Federal Reserve Notes (tender). Thus the money the US government and
thus in turn, the US people and all peoples and nations in the world who hold dollars (and why do you think they push these on the world so much?) are
debt instruments owed to the Federal Reserve, by the holders. Thus, sooner or later you must return them, plus a percentage. Of course, to the Federal
Reserve, the percentage is better.
You can print money in the form of debt...it is an IOU. And you can barter or negotiate transactions with real specie (gold or silver). Money has to
be agreeable as a medium of exchange, measure of value and a store of value. Counterfeiting the federal currency is and should be a crime (even if it
Wrong. The 'Federal Reserve Note' is printed by a privately owned bank. The notes printed are not real money BUT 'legal tender'.
Which is why it is illegal to 'counterfeit'.
There is another thing that cannot be counterfeited in the USA as it belongs to the government. This is actually real money in the form of coins.
This is the law when it comes on coins (not paper dollars etc) 18 U.S.C. § 486
Whoever, except as authorized by law, makes or utters or passes, or attempts to utter or pass, any coins of gold or silver or other metal, or
alloys of metals, intended for use as current money, whether in the resemblance of coins of the United States or of foreign countries, or of
original design, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
Notice that the law also ropes in there "Original Designs"...
This is the reason why the "Liberty Dollar" coin creator was convicted in federal court, please note all of the stuff the Liberty Dollar was attached
to yet the poor sap was convicted because of the coins:
The Liberty Dollar (ALD) was a private currency produced in the United States. The currency was issued in minted metal rounds (i.e. coins), gold
and silver certificates and electronic currency (eLD).
ALD certificates are "warehouse receipts" for real gold and silver owned by the bearer. According to court documents there were about 250,000 holders
of Liberty Dollar certificates. The metal was warehoused at Sunshine Minting in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, prior to a November 2007 raid by the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Secret Service.
Until July 2009, the Liberty Dollar was distributed by Liberty Services (formerly known as "National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal
Reserve and the Internal Revenue Code" (NORFED),
On March 18, 2011, von NotHaus was pronounced guilty of "making, possessing, and selling his own coins"
Yet he WAS NOT convicted for his printed paper money nor for his electronically created currency.
The reason for this is because in the united states IT IS LEGAL to print your own currency. The catch is that it MUST BE in paper currency and
NOT COINS just like the Federal Reserve does.
Contrary to popular belief, The federal reserve does not make coins and has never done so. The coins are made by the unites states mint and they have
been doing so since 1792.
This is because unlike federal reserve notes, coins are in fact REAL CURRENCY since the metals and alloys they use is finite whereas federal
reserve notes are created out of thin air and the ONLY thing that gives it value if the FAITH of the American Populace.
Another thing that 99.99 percent of Americans, including yourself, do not know is that the Federal Reserve Note is NOT THE ONLY PAPER CURRENCY in the
There are many other paper currencies in the united states like
The Ithaca Hours (Printed Since 1992)
Here is the CBS report
The Fox Business Report
And on ABC News
& even on a Japanese Financial Show
and many other paper currencies currently being used in the USA.
With that being said, YES YOU CAN PRINT YOUR OWN CURRENCY!
You can even call them: "The OP lack of history knowledge currency of ATS" or something like that...
