There is no law against private money in the USA (so long as you aren't trying to counterfeit actual US dollars). This is intimidation. The law says US currency is to be used for DEBTS public and private. This is to make the debt/bond market stable and attractive to foreign investors. No one has to accept US dollars/coins at the retail level. Retail sales are a contract. The contract can be for two things of value.

Is that so? I didnt vote for it. Once I start giving up authority over myself to someone that cares not for me or mine, and seeks only to enrich himself and limit me in my home am I not dead already?
Plenty of law not based on constitutional justice. So what?
You DO realize you're not gonna live forever, right?
The only way the PTB can balance their oh so precious p&l books it to confiscate all the value in the country for themselves and dispose permanently and efficiently of any that may feel they or their heirs have any claim to it?

It doesn't matter if you voted for it, or were even alive when it was voted on. That's how law works. The post I replied to said that there was no law -- and that is simply untrue. I don't support this law, but it does exist. Pretending it doesn't exist is silly, and evidence of ignorance.
