I assume youd prefer the gold money be spent on trains?
No, I think Americans should be allowed to horde as much gold as they want.
But I think it's also wise to have a diversified portfolio of tangible assets, so it would be a good idea to convert some of the paper money into modern, efficient passenger rail infrastructure before them stinking federal reserve notes become as worthless as TP.
No one but you, welfare parasites and gummint functionaries like the Lionel system. I like my truck. And I don’t live and work in a rats maze.
What is your ends in these choo-choos? Money or control?
