What would happen if we returned to silver as money in the United States? Can you imagine what changes we would see?
Imagine if all money had to be backed by silver (or gold). Imagine that it became more difficult to produce money. Imagine that the supply of money stabilized.
Imagine that U.S. money would then become a reliable and safe store of value rather than a rapidly depreciating asset losing a high percentage of its value over short periods of time.
Imagine that the people of the world would once again seek to own the dollar instead of the depreciating fiat currencies they own today. Imagine the value of your hard money appreciating against soft fiat currencies that are backed by nothing. Imagine the purchasing power of your money increasing.
Imagine that the U.S. government would have to solve problems and live within its means as it wouldn’t simply be able to print silver and gold as it prints more and more and more Federal Reserve Notes today.
Imagine the end of price inflation. Imagine if a gallon of gas, a dozen eggs, a pack of gum or a loaf of bread cost the same today, tomorrow and ten years from now. Imagine how much easier it would be to plan for retirement if you knew what your money would be worth at retirement and you didn’t need to worry about monetary inflation robbing the value of your savings.
Imagine if the government could no longer secretly steal the value of your money through the dilution of its value caused by monetary inflation. Imagine money with no counter party risk.
Imagine if your money was as good as gold anywhere and anytime.
Imagine if the trillions of U.S. dollars floating around the world were converted to silver tomorrow how many dollars would it take to buy an ounce of silver. Imagine if you were holding an inventory of silver when that happened. Imagine what would happen to the price of silver.
Imagine what would happen to precious metals mining stocks.
Imagine what would happen to U.S. socialism and the lie that there’s a free lunch to be had.
Imagine what would happen to the size of the federal government.
Imagine what would happen to our ability to wage interventionist wars on a continual basis. Imagine peace breaking out all over.
Imagine Americans learning to live within their means.
Imagine a return to morality, a lessening of envy, and a reduction of institutionalized theft. Imagine an end to the enslavement of the taxpayer. Imagine a rebirth of freedom. Imagine an end to the Federal Reserve’s power to enslave the masses. Imagine if the banksters could no longer counterfeit money.
Imagine people actually reaping as they sowed.
Imagine when prices stabilize that businesses will no longer be falsely vilified for increasing prices and price gouging just because they’re trying to keep up with monetary inflation. Imagine citizens beginning to see business as the provider of an improved life for everyone and businessmen being seen as heroes rather than villains.
Imagine a reduction in the trade deficit as Americans may not be as willing to send their gold and silver over seas in exchange for cheap Asian goods and foreign oil as they are to send worthless paper in that exchange. Imagine an increase in energy production in the U.S. as the U.S. would not want to trade gold and silver for oil. Imagine an increase in jobs in the U.S. as we would no longer have inflation to export, but would keep our jobs here and buy domestically produced goods.
Imagine if the value of your earnings could no longer be secretly stolen through inflation. Imagine if this giant fraud were no longer continued and the workers and earners of the nation were no longer cheated out of the value of their savings.
Imagine if our States, our lawmakers and our citizens honored the Constitution’s limits on what can be used as money.
