Please listen to what Ron Paul says in the opening sentence of his testimony before the United States House of Representatives, Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy, Hearing on Sound Money. I have been shouting this from the rooftops now for several years. Tenther’s please take note. It isn’t just me who has made this claim. Someone much wiser than I is giving a very important call to action.
“One of the most pressing issues of our time is the push for monetary freedom. The only sound monetary system is one which protects sound money and allows consumers, businesses, and investors the freedom to transact in the currency of their choice. The importance of sound money is summed up nicely by Ludwig von Mises: “It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments.” It is no wonder that governments fight tooth and nail against sound money, as sound money protects the well-being of the middle class and the poor while preventing the expansion of government.”
