That this has achieved the status of serious discussion show how screwed up the left has gotten us.
Too many people were asking “Why are we paying taxes if you can do this”?
They couldn’t give up that control could they?
EXACTLY. Slithering socialists are slippery in their schemes. DEFUND them. DEPOPULATE them.
Platinum is trading at $1635US an ounce. So, any coin with a face value above its metal content is fiat money.
So, the difference between paper fiat money and platinum fiat money is? Answer, the difference between the metal value of the coin and the face value. A billion dollar platinum coin with one ounce of platinum would actually be worth a little more than a billion dollars in paper notes, but not much more. Why bother minting platinum coins when you can just fire up the presses? Paper and ink are really cheap right now.
Wait until enough people figure out the fiat money scam and refuse to accept it. It probably won't happen this year. 47% of the population has passed the fiat money stage and gone directly to electronic money.
