Montana Lawmaker asks to be paid in gold
A Montana state lawmaker is asking that he be paid in gold coins because of his lack of faith in the U.S. dollar amid a rising deficit.

Jerry O誰eil, a Republican just reelected in his northern Montana district, says his constituents told him he was not honoring his duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution, which O誰eil and Gold Standard supporters say requires the government to print money backed by gold.

Good for him.

All elected public officials should do this.

The Gold Standard is the only backbone economic model that makes any sense.

There is a reason why mankind always has a way of returning to the gold standard.

That's easy, gold has been a valuable metal for thousands of years. If you don't think gold is used in many industrial applications, you should do a little research. I shouldn't take more than a minute to figure out the truth. Gold will most likely continue to be valuable in the future.

We haven't had "legal tender" since 1913. Now we have federal reserve notes. They aren't backed by anything more substancial than Benny's word that it is real momey. But even Benny wont say how much it will be worth tomorrow. If he keeps the printers rolling, it wont be worth much. The money has nothing backing it, so we call it Benny's butt money.

Re: Montana Lawmaker asks to be paid in gold
It's because gold is largely incorruptible. It doesn't corrode, it doesn't tarnish, and it is inert. There are gold artifacts that were buried thousands of years ago that look exactly the same as they were when they were buried. Every other material that mankind worked back then rusted, rotted, or just plain disintegrated.

The combination of being easy to find, easy to work, and having permanence all made gold the most valuable metal in ancient times.

Now what I find fascinating is that in Central America, cocao beans were used as currency. You could buy livestock, slaves, good and services (even the service of a prostitute) with cocoa beans. When the Spanish arrived, Herman Cortez instantly had the idea to begin a cocoa plantation. He would then trade the natives cocoa beans for gold. Smart man, talk about a "growth" fund!
