Do you think the legions of petty bureaucrats at the Federal Reserve would have a job if America were on the gold standard? People like Dr. Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner should be in orange jumpsuits on their way to prison along with all of the rats on board the Obama Titanic who jumped overboard months ago because they knew that the America ship of state was on fire and sinking.
The answer? Gold, chains and the Constitution
If America hadn't created free public education in the 1850s, which are merely Marxist, Darwinist, Freudian propaganda factories and temples to education atheism, we would have long ago learned the moral and constitutional words of President Thomas Jefferson, who like a prophet of old proclaimed, Let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.
Unless America elects enough tea-party Republicans to not only kill Obamacare, QE1, QE2, Stimulus, TARP, Wall Street kleptocracy bailouts, but also LBJ's Great Society, FDR's New Deal and replace the IRS with a flat tax, then America as a superpower and the greatest of all great nations is kaput. To paraphrase Jefferson, America's return to the gold standard will be a good first step to enforce fiscal discipline, a balanced budget, limit government intervention and restart the Reagan revolution by binding liberal Democrats down from economic, political and legal mischief, shackling these thieves (and their RINO co-conspirators) to the chains of the Constitution.
