The Weight Equivalent of 2 Aircraft Carriers Of Solid Gold Won't Pay Off Our National Debt

Imagine if tomorrow a 240,250 ton meteor made of SOLID GOLD, (the weight of more than TWO Ford-Class Aircraft Carriers) landed in the parking lot of the US Treasury Department... we would still be $1Trillion in debt.

The Dollar = GAME OVER

My Math:
We owe $16 Trillion
$15 Trillion dollars(@ $1770/ounce) = 8,474,576,271 ounces
8,474,576,271 ounces = 240,250 Metric Tons
1 Ford Class Carrier = 100,000 Metric Tons

But the GOOD NEWS is that if THREE aircraft carrier size lumps

of gold land in the Treasury Parking Lot instead of two - we'll be all set!

Wherever the two came from - lets hope there are THREE!

Whew, thats a load off my mind.

Pun (sarcasm and humor) intended.

Government has no choice

But to admit they're bankrupt however I don't think the majority of Americans will take it too kindly.

Yes it would pay it off and then some

Article 1 Section 8, US Constitution

The Congress shall have Power .......To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;.......

Congress can pay off the national debt with a $50 gold eagle coin if it wanted.

By setting the Measure of the conversion of $50 dollars in gold = National Debt denominated in Federal Reserve Notes.

CASE CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Debt paid off.

How many

Chris Christies would that take?

1,858,459 Chris Christies

By comparison:
Philadelphia's population is 1,536,471
Tarrant COunty(Ft. Worth), Texas = 1,849,815

Christie said at his heaviest he weighted 285lbs (5'7 frame)
