His solutions toward the end are really

worth watching and supporting.


Love the history.

Fantastic lecture. I

Fantastic lecture. I Favorited it on youtube. Looking forward to part 3 in December.

Merrill M.E. Jenkins Sr. ( M.R.)

Look him up on youtube.

"No army can stop an idea whose time has come"

Great video

Its a great video. Very powerfull speech.

This was really good!

Edwin Viera is the best scholar in this movement. His knowledge of the Constitution and original intent of the founders is unmatched. I've heard of Pieces of Eight, but never saw how large both volumes were until now. My jaw dropped! Those books are freakin huge! I just don't have that kind of attention span, but I'm probably gonna try to buy them anyways.

with the opening act.


Will you marry me?

Oh and yes...great video

There was more video...??



Yeah...I almost wanted to pause it for an hour and just claim I watched it! That would count right?

Excellent. Should be seen by everyone


Mr. Paul and Dr. Viera are

Mr. Paul and Dr. Viera are the only people I know that can get the USA on track. The do nothing obstructionist congress is trying to make the collapse happen during Obama's watch. That is their only goal! very sad indeed.

I haven't watched this yet, but I will. I love this man. He is

undoubtedly one of our greatest patriots. I agree with all the posts below.


Answered one question I had.

Emitting bills of credit by the Federal government is unconstitutional 'because it is not explicitly authorized.'

"coin Money" is to apply Congress's brand as insurance to States that the value of money is regulated by weight and assay.

Counterfeiting is using the Congressional brand on coin. The State then has a Money that is well regulated (for weight and assay) keeping the cost of collecting and paying debts to a minimum.

People collecting a debt from the State benefit from the same system.

Gold and Silver Warehousing and electronic transfer simply adds utility to the process. A gold backed bit-coin technology providing the needed security.

Only five more things are needed?
1. Repeal legal tender laws. States refer to Constitution.
2. Eliminate capital gains taxes on gold and silver.
3. Enforce full reserve requirement for warehousing
4. Full disclosure of reserves and issues for private banks using fractional reserves. (Enter at a known risk.)
5. Repeal Federal Reserve Acts and it's socialization of private losses.

What's missing?

Free includes debt-free!

Article I sec.8 clause 5

Congress has the delegated power to coin money.(gold and silver coin) When you say "Counterfeiting is using the Congressional brand on coin". You must be referring to the debased coins(slugs) they have been circulating since 1965? Not the gold and silver coins, correct?

Thinking of private coining something that looked like AG or AU

Coinage Act of 1792:
Section 10 -Branded with "Liberty" and the "United States of America". Should Congress protect its brand?

Concern with debasement of the US Coins covered, but not counterfeit. Maybe Congress figured no one could compete with "free" coinage. Hmmm....

Fun look at British "token" coins:

Free includes debt-free!

Vieira as VP

I think Ron Paul would be wise to pick Edwin Vieira as his VP. It would be the best insurance policy Ron could have because the "Powers that be" would fear Edwin even more than Ron. They would pray nothing would happen to Ron. Edwin is more than qualified for the job. A life long Republican. A scholar in Constitutional law (arguing and winning 3 cases before the US Supreme court) ,also a scholar in History and Economics. It would be a dream team, todays Thomas Jefferson and John Adams !

BTW: Just for added security, they probably would want to forgo Secret Service protection( do not want another Kennedy thing) and get their own former Special Forces (Navy Seals or Rangers)and pay them in gold or silver!

Great Video, The Frustrating Thing Is...

Dr. Vieira introduced this concept on a state monetary system way back in 2004 in New Hampshire, and again in Montana about 2008 or 2009, and the stupid state legislators wouldn't pass the proposal into state monetary law.

Utah, could implement Dr.Vieira's complete plan very quickly, since they already made it legal to use Gold/Silver coins in their state.

Might be time to open a bank account in Utah.


Vieira would make an excellent WH counsel for President Paul

and then he'd be a fine fit for Supreme Court Justice.

The man knows what's up. (to put it simply)

I agree, he would be fine....

as WH counsel or Supreme Court Justice. Four years I asked Ron Paul, if he would consider Edwin Vieira as Attorney General. At the time he was thinking of Napolitano for that spot but thought Edwin would make a great Secretary of the Treasury.I believe he would do a fine job in any of those positions but I still believe as far as Ron's security goes he would be best as his VP.

A sound investment

of one hour.



I've followed Vieira for decades. He never disappoints.

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783
"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey referring to ISIS

Ed Vieira...

...is the real deal. He's a hardcore liberty-minded guy who has the courage and academic credentials to stand right up there even with Dr. Paul.

His book, "Pieces of Eight: The Monetary Powers and Disabilities of the United States Constitution", is a masterpiece of monetary history and commands a premium whenever it is printed up.

Thanks for posting.
