PAY THEM IN QUARTERS!!
While I realize that there is currently a law limiting the currency the US Treasury can issue, I think if it’s one thing we’ve learned in the past 4 years, it is that laws can be changed. This time, let’s change one that will actually be GOOD for the people and the country!
We MUST stop having our monetary system based on DEBT! It is pure insanity that no one can be paid in anything other than DEBT for their hard work and production. It is time that we actually issue currency based upon production, as our Founding Fathers intended.
Article I, Section 8, Clause 5
[The Congress shall have the power to] coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.
I’m not seeing anything there that requires that a PRIVATE banking institution be empowered to issue our money based on demand for DEBT. Are you? Issuance of debt-backed currency only drives us deeper into debt because the money created to pay off the debt is borrowed into existence and creates MORE DEBT. See the problem?
Stop the insanity NOW!
