The check doesn't work

The government will always cheat. When pressures mount, the easy solution is irresistible: create the wealth out of nothing. The inherent value of the metal in the coin, is itself the discipline that keeps the government from taxing [stealing] wealth in secret (creating more chits against the 'wealth of the nation' than there is wealth). The profound conclusion from this simple formula is, the only way a free people can maintain control of a government is sound money.
