Perhaps of interest.

This happened under FDR's reign during the Great Depression, and it should come as no surprise that his 'fellow travelers' at this point in history are walking in his footsteps.

Soon after FDR was inagurated he issued an executive order effectively outlawing gold. Did the Democrats give warning this was going to happen, or did they surprise American with it the morning the order was issued? Had the New York Times been pounding on the eeeeeeeevil of a gold based currency for a while to beat down the citizens objections to having their gold stolen by the government?

I thought that when FDR confiscated gold in 1933, he was doing that because he was trying to build-up Federal gold bullion and that only rare, collectable coins were exempt? Nicki Douglas
