Gold isn't the only source of money. Silver is an excellent source of barter, as is any other precious metal. Copper, for instance, is stolen anywhere it is used because the price has increased quite a bit higher than a penny.

6 months, 3 weeks ago on The real reason for increased inequality since the early 1970s. The end of the gold standard.
Griffin is an excellent source. I've corresponded with him, and trust his opinion. The school of economics I trust is Austrian, as my political choice, Ron Paul does.
The reason the gold standard was so essential to protect the value of money is that ever since it was disconnected, when one saves, say, $100,000 for their retirement, by then it is worth $25,000, if even that. So one is taking two steps forward and 5 steps back. Only the incredibly rich can weather that.
Dirk, I don't deal with conspiracy theories that just divides us. The New World Order is running this country, and that is why our laws aren't being followed. Some of the banks that belong to the Fed are foreign banks and they received some of the federal bailout money. With members of government acting like they're in on the unraveling of the U.S., it is vital to support those politicians who support liberty, like Ted Cruz who has an excellent plan to defund Obamacare. We had a chance with Ron Paul, but the MSM lied about him and Romney stole hundreds of his delegates in order to win the GOP nomination, even though it was Dr. Paul who beat Obama in almost every poll out there. There is method to this madness, and that is why an overwhelming percentage of this country supports Edward Snowden, who never endangered anyone but who has embarrassed our government.

A convention to amend the Constitution is a Constitutional Convention. Levin is playing with words. The only other ConCon was the original one in 1776, and it was attended by honorable people. Since then all amendments have originated in Congress. Today a ConCon would put everything on the table, available for revision. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and others like them would exert considerable pressure to amend those articles and amendments they think don't go far enough for the liberal agenda. Think of how the widely unpopular Obamacare passed both the Senate and the House, and think how easily our Constitution could be gutted.
And if one thinks the states can stop a bad revision, think of the 18th amendment that prohibited alcohol. That one passed the 3/4 states and was in effect for several years before the American people had to go to all the trouble of reversing it. Think of first trying to amend the Constitution and then reversing the changes in this day and age with the lies and propaganda issuing forth from the MSM .
Our Constitution is fine the way it is. It is lack of following it that is the problem, and what makes anyone believe that amending it would guarantee faithfulness to its new version. All the concerns of those who want to amend it are already covered in the existing document, but few know what it already covers. Take healthcare for congressional members vs Obamacare for Americans. Equal application is already covered, and incidentally, guaranteed healthcare is unconstitutional, as is the income tax and the federal reserve system that have ruined our money, and the bailouts to foreign and domestic banks. Follow the money, and one can see why a ConCon won't produce the desired results and will only make things hugely worse.

If you don't vote, then you have no right to complain, and you become part of the problem. Yes, there is much wrong with the whole world, but anarchy isn't the answer. There is a vast difference between a huge government that tries to be all things to all people and a small government to keep basic order from those who would create mayhem. Who would do that in your paradise, the courts? Please! Each judge has his/her own prejudices and opinions, as do the members of the jury, and a huge amount of time would be spent on each incident that would clog the courts for hundreds of years to come. In our present system a cop will often stop the first incident a perpetrator commits so hopefully they wouldn't commit more. Without this, some vigilante eventually stops them after more incidences, and he gets sued by the victim's family. Who would you find guilty in this example, the victim, the cop, the vigilante? So instead of one incident from one perpetrator, we end up with 3 or 4 or more. How is that simplifying the system? Society evolved as it has because one can't just shoot someone based on their perceived assumption that they've done something bad. We have government involved to sort it all out. Just because corp money and unions and a whole host of other things have corrupted society is no reason to throw out 2,000 years of our evolving into civilized citizens. And just what have you done in the public arena to aliviate this mess? Or are you an armchair quarterback giving out advice?

@Patrick Henry Yes, the elite think they are better than the rest of us. But their being in charge isn't mainly about running things right, its about power and money.That is why liberty is the best system discovered. Its a jungle out there, and one takes their life in their hands just walking out the front door. We can't say how long each of us will be on this earth, and that's why freedom is so important. We could be safer with Big Brother watching over us, but what kind of life is that? Its having true grit and facing the world ourselves that is exhilarating, and I wouldn't trade it for all the protection possible.
@Patrick Henry @WilliamSchooler I remind you of these two quotes. The first one is especially cogent right now."It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men". Samuel Adams"Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else". Frederic Bastiat
Here in California Obama will win the 55 winner-take-all electoral votes, and a Republican vote for president is a wasted vote. So here is the chance for liberty minded voters to present a united liberty front and write-in Ron Paul's name (he's an official write-in candidate, Andrew Naplitano as vp), or vote for Gary Johnson who is on the ballot. Together, the votes for these two candidates will scare the CA GOP by making a fairly significant statement. We only get such a chance every 4 years, so get out there and vote!
