Americans Who Believe in Sound Money Are Now "Domestic Terrorists"

Bernard von NotHaus, 67, was convicted of "making, possessing, and selling his own coins," according to Anne M. Thompkins. U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina. (Click on title for article.)

How in the world can a man be convicted of "making, possessing and selling his own coins," when he used nothing but a precious metal,  silver, for his coins? Further, silver coins minted by the U.S. Mint, as mandated by the U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, have not been in circulation in the United States as legal tender since 1964. If von Nothaus was passing off some other substance than silver, the feds might have a case, but using silver? Absurd.

Worse, attempting to use sound money, such as silver and gold, for your economic transactions, according to the U.S. Attorney,  represent "a clear and present danger to the economic stability" of the United States.

“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism,” U.S. Attorney Tompkins said in announcing the verdict. “While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country,” she added. “We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption, and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government.”

In other words, anyone who attempts to protect their economic well being by using precious metals as a medium of exchange, rather than U.S. government issued coins (which the U.S. Mint has stopped minting silver coins until June 30, 2011) or Federal Reserve notes, are guilty of "domestic terrorism."

It is the creation of fiat paper currency in unprecedented amounts that is weakening the US dollar both in the US and worldwide, that is creating this insidious undermining of the US economy. The real monopoly counterfeiter and domestic terrorists are the officials at the Federal Reserve System, which creates the U.S. dollar out of thin air and then issues it through debt into circulation. Yes, the FRS creates money out of nothing, and then loans it to the rest of us at interest.

And we are the "domestic terrorists" and a threat to the "economic stability" of the United States? These criminals in government have turned reality on its head.

Just one more reason that shows that those who decided to flee this corrupt system are making the right decision.
