No insult intended, but far too many RP supporters think -- just because he seems to lean back toward the founding principles -- that he is the equal of the founders. He and Vieira for instance cite Jefferson to return to the gold standard, when Jefferson himself intended to remind us of its faults -- particularly in coexistence with usury.
If Ron were the caliber of the founders (and a wakeup *could* put him pretty close, at least in terms of understanding, if not in terms of engineering), then he would abandon the faults of the gold standard; and I say he would have embraced mathematically perfected economy.
Why for instance would Jefferson evade answering to MPE? I say on the first whisper he might hear of it, that he instead would demand to bring its arguments out into the open.
In any case, although it's not the intention of the page, this page puts RP and the founders into considerable perspective regarding monetary intellect:
