Comment: Gold is not the constitutional position

Gold is not the constitutional position

It's not the constitutional position, all the constitution says about it is that the states can't print their own money and if they do issue anything, it has to be gold or silver coin.

This was a protection so the states don't start infusing their own and different paper money into the system (maybe to pay off debts or something)... This does not apply to the national government.
