RESPONSE TO: THINK ABOUT IT!

John Maynard Keynes

Roger Sherman

The only American to affix his signature upon all of the founding documents of the United States of America: the Address to the King, the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution; actually helping to draft the latter three documents. The same man credited with saving the Federal Constitutional Convention of 1787, when he proposed the adoption of the two house system of government with his Great Comprise.

Sherman authored the gold & silver coin provision of the United States Constitution, and even wrote a scathing condemnation of paper money entitled, "A CAVEAT AGAINST INJUSTICE," (Caveat means warning) in which he stated:
"If what is used as a Medium of Exchange is fluctuating in its Value, it is no better than unjust Weights & Measures, both which are condemned by the LAWS of GOD & MAN." This is why the

Sherman and the other framers of the United States Constitution stipulated a monetary system of ONLY Gold and Silver as stated in ARTICLE 1, SECTIONS 8 and 10 of the United States Constitution:
"Congress shall have power to coin money and regulate the value thereof ... No State shall make any THING in Payment of Debts."

Our United States Constitution HAS NEVER BEEN AMENDED!!

George Bernard Shaw

"You have a choice between the natural stability of gold and the honesty and intelligence of the members of government. And with all due respect for those gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the capitalist system lasts, vote for gold."

Don Stacey wrote:
As the Fed merrily debauches our currency, consider this:

"As the inflation proceeds and the real value of the currency fluctuates wildly from month to month, all permanent relations between debtors and creditors, which form the ultimate foundation of capitalism, become so utterly disordered as to be almost meaningless; and the process of wealth-getting degenerates into a gamble and a lottery.

Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose."

John Maynard Keynes
