  • What Will Pop the Gold Bubble? [View article]
    "I do agree Jim, when dealing with the Constitution itself, which only mentions the term "dollars" twice"

    And defines money in terms of gold and silver how many times? Zero!
    Glad I could help you see the truth. Finally.

    "Jim, I advocate the free will of the People to choose"

    Doug, the people are free to make poor choices. Multiple currencies circulating side by side are a poor choice.

    "Federal Reserve Notes were dictated to us where they not?"

    Based on powers given to Congress in the Constitution.

    "Some of us can see what 14.3 trillion of debt and a Congress that can't control spending leads to"

    Congress and the President spend way too much. Adding gold to the money supply will change that how exactly?

    "No one is advocating day to day usage of gold in transactions"

    Scroll down, Doug is advocating just that.

    "That's why there is legislation coming forth in Utah to accept gold, not your beloved "dollars" at market value"

    Accepting gold, not accepting Utah dollars.

    "Yes, the states have the right to do this per the Constitution"

    Glad to see you've stopped posting false claims about what the Constitution says. Victory!

    "You have a problem with this, yes or no?"

    No, why would I? And competing currencies circulating side by side within the US is still a bad idea.

    Are you as confused about the Constitution as Doug?

    "It is up to the retailer to take them at face value or not"

    Sounds like barter to me, not a competing currency circulating alongside the dollar.

    "Cities and individuals can create their own currency to compete with Federal Reserve Notes"

    As long as they don't call them dollars.

    "The Constitution says that states rights can trump your beloved Federal anything Jim"

    The Constitution doesn't allow Utah dollars, Illinois dollars and US dollars to circulate side by side, sorry.

    "I'm sure you disapprove of free markets too right?"

    Free markets are great.
    If you understand the Constitution, they're even better.

    "did I specify U.S. only? No"

    Aren't we talking about Utah?

    "Anyone today, can take their U.S. dollars and exchange them for Swiss currency, Canadian currency, gold, silver, whatever they choose that they think will hold its value"

    You bet. It's a bad idea to have those other currencies circulating alongside the US dollar inside the US.

    "What makes you want to limit them to one currency"

    Do I have to point you to the US Constitution again?

    "A right you claim is a "bad idea." It's not an "idea" Jim. It's reality"

    The reality is having multiple currencies circulating side-by-side in the US is a bad idea.

    "Interesting you think competing currencies is a bad idea"

    Yes, having competing currencies circulating at the same time in the US is a bad idea.

    "when we have it with every other country"

    You said stick to the issue in your comment, which was not foreign currencies.

    Sorry Doug, I meant that reply for someone else.

    No, I never took any law classes in college, besides business law.

    "Gold was $20 an ounce 100 years ago. $20 then could buy a top quality suit plus trimmings. Today, $1500 can do the same--and then some"

    In 1980 it could buy an $800 suit

    In 1980 it could buy an $800 suit. In 1999 it could buy a $260 suit.
    Now it can buy a $1500 suit.
    Real stable. LOL!

    Paul can't read the Constitution folks...he thinks it includes a definition of money and thinks the Founders "wrote into the Constitution that money is defined by a certain weight of gold or silver".
