Jerry O'Neil, Montana Legislator, Asks To Be Paid In Gold Coins

A Republican state legislator in Montana who once supported U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) for president is asking to be paid in gold and silver coins to guard against a collapse of the dollar.

State Rep. Jerry O'Neil (R-Columbia Falls) wrote to the state's Office of Legislative Services on Friday making the request, noting that concerns among his constituents about the national debt have prompted him to ask for payment in gold and silver coins "that are unadulterated with base metals." O'Neil, who is entering his sixth term, had not objected previously to being paid in dollars by the state for his services. Politico first reported the story on Tuesday.

I Would Classify This Post As HIGH Priority !

What are Americans going to do when and if the value of the current un-Constitutional dollar collapses, so much that paying for necessities becomes impossible ?
