  1. Do some research on the German inflation mess of 1923 to see how bad it can get.
    Remember: The Treasury doesn’t print real money, redeemable in silver or gold anymore.
    The so-called “Federal” Reserve prints bank notes, which are paper debt certificates, not redeemable for ANYTHING. The “Reserve” isn’t “Federal” at all, it’s a consortium of big privately-owned banks.
    This is basically a form of counterfeiting. With no hard-money backing, this inflation “money” is only worth what the market says it’s worth on any given day.
    A government can steal from it’s citizens in two ways: Taxation, a form of open, legal, enforceable theft of the money itself, or by inflation, a silent, hidden theft of the VALUE of money.
