Competing Currencies would be a GREAT way to identify Corporate & Social Welfare recipients!Submitted by go213mph on Sun, 07/15/2012 - 11:30
I live in an area where the economy is 70% Military Industrial Complex driven. One of the most frustrating things I hear my wealthly friends bitch about is all the people who are now “riding unemployment” and/or are receiving “food stamps”.
When I bring up the fact that the money THEY are earning by working for Government contractors or working as Civilians on base is coming from the same place as the money that is being handed out to the poor…well, let’s just say it’s not a topic that is conducive for a fun night out.
While driving to the store a few minutes ago I got to thinking that there would be a really effective way to help these people “see the light”. I thought…what if every person that received money from the Government was paid in RED currency instead of the ole greenbacks? Oh my god! how obvious would it be (especially around here) to see all the people in every damn store just handing out RED bills to buy all their consumer items?
I know for a fact that it would quickly become very embarrassing to many of my wealthly friends to be seen publicly buying all their $hit with money that was extracted from all of us using greenbacks.
Then I thought to myself, hum, maybe that’s what President Paul is trying to accomplish by introducing competing currencies? Can you imagine ANYONE choosing to accept FRN’s if they had a choice of ANYTHING else? Inflation would also identify itself in a heartbeat. In order to use a FRN retailers would quickly start making them hand over 5-10 times as many FRN’s as they would if you were using a competing currency that had a regulated method in which the supply of that currency was controlled. (Bernanke and Greenspan need not apply)
I think forcing people that are living off the warfare/welfare state to use RED currency would be more fun and more of an “in your face” educational experience for the masses…but President Paul is much smarter than I am.
I know you can poke holes in this theory…but, that’s not my point. My point is trying to find some way for all of the wealthly people in this country to be forced to acknowledge that it’s not the poor that are stealing all the money from the public purse…it’s primarily the TBTF banks and corporations…and all those Government contracts that are handed out to the politically connected people who monopolize the MIC, Big Pharma, and all the rest of the companies that spend billions lobbying our bought and paid for congress.
