CNBC Poll: 69% of Americans Support the Gold Standard
Do I really think that any mainstream politician would ever actually move us toward the gold standard? Not a chance. It doesn’t matter. As I mentioned the other day, the mere fact that Romney was forced to consider creating a commission to examine the return to gold tells us all we need to know. The populace is becoming increasingly informed of the total scam that the current monetary system is and they are looking for answers...

CNBC poll seems to suggest that while Washington bureaucrats might find a return to the gold standard anathema to their narrow interests, the citizens of the United States think it is a pretty good idea. Out of a little more than 19,000 votes that had been recorded at CNBC.com on Friday afternoon, 69 percent voted that they would be in favor of returning to the gold standard. Only 24 percent of respondents voted "no," that they do not support it and seven percent were unsure.

Re: CNBC Poll: 69% of Americans Support the Gold Standard
Currently, if the United States were to back every dollar in circulation 100 percent with gold, the precious metal would be worth $10,000 an ounce. It would be possible for only a fraction of each dollar to be backed by gold. For example, if 15 percent of each dollar was redeemable in gold, it would imply a price of $1,500 an ounce. On Friday, gold traded at $1,672 an ounce.

Careful - you'll upset those who believe that a return to a gold standard is impossible.

However, the value of the US$, currently based on nothing but blind trust in its future/continued worth is clearly unsustainable, and our overseas creditors are getting restless.

Returning to a commodity-backed currency is the only sane escape route from the idiocy of endless digital paper creation at zero cost/maximum gain to the issuers.

Trouble is, how do you go about confiscating the tools of mass impoverishment from the criminals who are running this fleecing operation, which is simply designed to siphon off the accumulated wealth of those who honestly worked, and saved to better themselves and their future generations, - when the design of the plan is to bankrupt everyone who is not in the inner circle?

It's time for a drastic overhaul of the global monetary system.

Just think if money was backed by precious metals again, there would be no inflation or deflation and people could save their own money for a rainy day or retirement. Save and pay cash for thing like furniture etc...

Yep, I sure would be for that!

The rich could still be rich, but if you saved your money you could do well too.

Swap your government issued paper for physical metal - 'in your hand' assets.

Don't EVER accept paper promises. Take physical possession of your hard-earned store of savings.

It's not difficult. Buy from a reputable company. Tell no-one that has no need to know.

Sleep well knowing that you've hedged against the certainty of the coming fiat currency collapse/meltdown.

Finally!!!! Someone gets it. These goldtards or moneytards will forever be in the vicious cycle of entrapment by their leaders and continue to dig themselves further into their graves.Swapping one means of enslavement for another one. When will these people learn? We do not need money to survive.

Did these people value gold as a child? I am sure the human civilisation has advanced so much that the only thing to put trust in is in material things and not in their fellow humans. If this is the thought process people have, we might as well not complain about the PTB controlling and wiping out the human specie cause we are sure a big mistake and deserve it.

Re: CNBC Poll: 69% of Americans Support the Gold Standard
CUI BONO (who benefits) from the reintroduction of a value based\backed currency? If you provide & saturate the markets with CHEAP almost no cost nonvalue based credit, then once saturation apex is acheived you switch gears to a value based system, the true value of the low\no cost credit quadruples in real purchasing power terms! Think of it as a bank creates credit out of thin air one day at almost no cost... the next day the credit is backed by expensive substance such as gold..... the cheap credit\debt would then be on a par with the expensive credit\debt creating windfall purchasing power for the creditor classes! CUI BONO?

If true it's because they have zero idea what a Gold standard is.

The only way to sustain a Gold standard is if you have perfectly balanced trade.

With the current trade deficit of the USA...There is enough Gold in the USA to sustain global trade for a few days.

Any gold that enterned circulation would coiculate out and not come back.

All the imports would stop and the USA along with the rest of the world would implode to oblivion.

That is why the Gold window was closed back in 1971

It's not impossible to return to a gold standard.

The top own all the gold...They lent it into circulation and basically all below are renting it.

The only way to pay the rent due is to mine more Gold or borrow more gold from the top...of course after you pay the rent so teh top has gold to lend.

it's why the came up with credit of ious...so that you can borrow money created out of thin air to fund the mining operation to obtain the gold you all owe the top to pay the rent due on the Gold and the interest due on the credit they issued.

You all are so ignorant of economics it's a laugh.

All the money that has been printed was to supply the demand for money by the bottom.

The top maintain their position by going the bottom what the ywant...

one slight problem.

The top employ the bottom to supply teh top with everything wholesale...the top the nmark it up and sell it to the bottom retail.

The difference between the wholesale cost and the retail price is the yield the top lives off of...

The bottom has to keep slaving in the field and mines to supply the yield the top demands.

Until of course the mines run out and the crops fail.

All the money in circulation globally is owned by the top and is rented to the bottom.

The cost to pay the rent to the owners of the world is hidden in the prices of everything.

You all are fighting to the death to remain asleep to enjoy the dream you are awake.
