Lawful Money vs Legal Tender.

First. Vet to Vet, Thank you for your service Myke and Welcome Home.

Yes, I have several examples of old notes in my collection.

Some older notes I have are actually not notes, but certificates redeemable in physical silver. Silver Certificates. Silver and gold, lawful money.

Other older paper notes I have are indeed notes, promissory notes. I use these notes to educate others on the difference between Lawful and Legal; as these notes are quite different than today's worthless FRN's. Indeed, these notes were redeemable for something called Lawful Money...which according to the Constitution would be Silver and Gold.

My paper note collection consist of:
Silver Certificates. - formerly redeemable in actual physical silver. Now relegated to merely a collectors item.
Promissory Notes. - formerly redeemable for something called "Lawful Money". Presumably Gold and Silver.
FRN's. - worthless petrodollar redeemable for nothing. Although one may convert FRN's into other denomination FRN's or valueless steel, tin and zinc tokens, they are not redeemable for anything.

Here is what is printed on these notes explaining their value to the holder.

Silver Certificate - "This certifies that there is on deposit in the US Treasury of The United States of America One Dollar in Silver Payable to the Bearer on Demand".

Promissory Notes - "This note is legal tender for all debts public and private, and is redeemable in Lawful Money at the United States Treasury or at any federal reserve bank".

FRN's - "This note is legal tender for all debts public and private".

Silver and Gold is Lawful money.
Silver and Gold Certificates were backed by and redeemable for actual physical deposits of gold and silver.
Promissory Notes represented and were redeemable for Lawful Money. Presumably gold and silver...
FRN's are not Lawful, only legal. Convertable and exchangable for legal goods, yet not redeemable.

Lawful = The Constitution.
Legal. = Corporate Government.

There is a great difference between Lawful and Legal. Lawful trumps legal although legal is always attempting to trump Lawful. These old notes are a great way to see how legal has usurped Lawful.
The Promissory Note appears to have been a buffer to condition us as it contains language both Lawful and Legal, which served to blur the distinct differences of the two terms. Both Certificates and Pr. Notes were in use at the same time over a period pf years. As soon as we were comfortable with the Pr. Notes, they suspended the production and removed from circulation the Certificates.
Shortly thereafter, quietly and with little fanfare; Promissary Notes were swiftly replaced with FRN's.
Within a handful of decades, we went from Lawful to Legal...these actions may be legal, but they are not Lawful. Our tender may be legal, but it is not Lawful. We have been royaly jerked.

I bring up this topic at every chance. Lawful vs. Legal.
Most people always use the term Legal when they should use Lawful.

TPTB wish to replace Lawful with Legal. Lawful Money was first. Lawful Firearms are next. I do not own or carry legal firearms, I Lawfully own and Lawfully carry firearms. Or do I??? Legal tender can only be spent on legal items...legality based on corporate government statutes, codes and regulations. The Law of course refers to inalienable rights granted by the Laws of God and Nature enshrined in our Constitution. I'm just saying that I would be more comfortable if I were able to purchase my Lawful firearms with Lawful Money!

We must insure that Constitutional Law always holds sway and authority over any and all Corporate Government statutes, codes or regulations. Constitutional Law protects and defends our rights and Liberty; legal statutes restrict, diminish and usurp the same.

But I digress. DP readers are some of the smartest folks around and you probably knew all this...but thanks for letting me vent on an issue I am obviously passionate about. :-)

Exercise Liberty!
