How Old Is Our New Money - Greenbacks - Plastic? Want change? Change your money. The President can't do this, but we the people can. We hold the power over the president, and Washington with the old USA Constitution. We cry for change but we've been convinced that going back to a prosperous system wont work today. But, when did prosperity go out of style?
The gold standard can save your home, create jobs, and bring the war to an end.
When the USA prospers the rest of the world does too, for She is a generous country. When a country gives gold then the country receives more gold. When a country lust for gold then it looses gold. It's in the nature of things to happen that way. And a person works harder to keep from working than he does to go to work. It takes more work to commit a crime than to go to work. And crime creates inflation and unnecessary hardships. Thus the criminal has to work harder at not working to get more money to exist because his theft has caused an inflation. He has taken from one of his pockets to give to his other pocket. It's a powerless situation he has created for himself.
As one loses self control he has a desire to want to control others. The more he can control his money the more he can control himself, the more he controls himself the more he can control his money. It forms a circle.
Financial advisors wants to return gold to the people to liberate their children. religious leaders wants to return religion to liberate them. However history proves that both are needed for a civilization to flourish. Our founding fathers gifted themselves and their children with the freedom of both, through the Constitution. But, the constitution got to be against the constitution.
Ecc. 7: 12.For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
The con men have been conned.
Currencies without gold to back it up makes it a weak dollar causing inflation and then a depression. In other words the price of gold and black gold (oil) isn't rising in price but the bills to buy it with has less value and it takes more of them to buy it. One may think that the lack of gold won't cause us a depression because gold is no longer money. Of course there are reasons why it's no longer money. There's not enough of it. Who said that? Could it be, the tyrants that hogged it up for themselves? It never diminishes with time or rust, or wears out, and is added to as mines produces it.
Actually there's no such thing as not having enough gold and that's the reason it's endured it's spending power for many centuries.
The phrase, "there is not enough gold in the world" is a hoax. Gold was used as a measurement of value based on the available amount of gold. If there were a trillion pounds or one pound, we could still use gold (or silver) as a marker. It's like a ruler. Whether we call it one inch or 1/12 feet doesn't change the fact that I can exchange x amount of gold for a cow. Also, like all precious metals, it has industrial function, so it has more use than just ornamentation (which, as you well know, is one of the biggest industries in the world and further defines gold's usefulness).
In 1792 the U. S. Coinage Act was passed by Congress. It invoked the death penalty for anyone debasing money. A dollar was defined as a specific weight of gold or silver coined under the direction of our elected representatives, (Congress).
Gold is still money, regretfully we are not allowed to spend it anymore. For, a rich man doesn't make a good slave and slaves are not allowed to have money. Gold is being spent by the only ones possessing it, the ones causing an inflation. Only they are allowed to spend it amongst themselves.
Though gold coins can set the value of the dollar, and gold is in abundance, there's never enough of it for as mines and merchants are bringing it in one door a small group of men is taking it out the other.
With a peek back at history of inflation one can see how tyrants stole the world's gold with the victims aiding them and causing depressions.
The first gold rush in the USA was in Georgia and the Carolinas in the 1830's. For two years it put more gold into the economy. It wasn't enough gold because in 1836-37 there was a depression. The next gold rush was in 1848. It brought the country out of a depression immediately and the other countries too. Half of the world's gold was produced by the 49'ers. Gold was so hard to find, that people poured in from many countries to the only gold discovery at that time. Men were millionaires over night and the adverage amount a man panned was $100 a day, If he panned any at all. In six years of panning, it added $350 million to the Nation and the other countries too, yet It wasn't enough. By 1857, the country was in a slight recession, with $100 million in in debt. Then came the richest discovery ever in 1859 with the comstock load of silver and gold. Over 20 years of time it put $400 billion of coins into the economy of the USA and other countries too. which equates in twenty first century money to $8 trillion. it brought them out of a depression immediately. there were other gold discoveries in Carson City. The riches gold strike was found in Pikes Peek CO. in 1860 there were gold rushes in Idaho, and Montana too. by 1869 the US had cornered the gold market. Yet with all these rich discoveries it wasn't enough money by 1873 through 1875 the country was in a depression. While searching for gold in 1889 gold and copper was discovered in Butte City Montana. By 1892 100 million pounds of that copper was controlling the world's market. Yet it wasn't enough money in 1893-95 the country was in a depression. Copper was still putting money into the economy, and by 1917 it had produced 100 million pounds of copper; From 1880 through 2005, the mines of the Butte district have produced more than 9.6 million tonnes of copper, 2.1 million tonnes of zinc, 1.6 million tonnes of manganese, 381 thousand tonnes of lead, 87 thousand tonnes of molybdenum, 715 million troy ounces of silver, and 2.9 million ounces of gold.
Yet it still wasn't enough money. By 1921 the USA was in a depression. After WWI The the roaring 20's was prospering in the USA, by exchanging goods for gold to other countries. But there wasn't enough money, by 1929 The Great Depression hit the industrial world, and lasted twelve years. WWII brought the USA out of that depression. A tunnel of stolen gold was found that Hitler had stashed away. Much of the missing gold that cause the depression was found there. It was returned to several countries and to USA. After the war gold was restored to the USA economy and was the riches country in the world. But it wasn't enough money by the 1960's the country started to slide down into a depression and hit it in the 1980's. The country bounced back a little. How could it be that there isn't enough gold? If gold brought us out of a depression, how did we go back into a depression while gold was still being added to the economy? Where did all the gold go?
THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET
12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.
13 For he saith, By the astrength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:
14 And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.
Although this King lived during the days of Isaiah, Isaiah was speaking of times past, present and future.
The King robbed the world by coning con-men into coning the people. So, we all give our money to him and since he has all the gold we have none and have caused a depression.
Tyrants have always hoard up gold to enslave man, it affords them to buy all properties, all business, and all the world. Not all the rich are tyrants. Following the gold trail we can learn who is, for their bags have been leaking.
One per cent of the people in the USA is rich, and owns 80% of our country. There is a large financial gap between them and the rest of the 99% of the people. Although by their theft they create an inflation and then a depression they couldn't do it without the people's help as easily seen with the housing and credit bank failures. Inflation is caused by gold theft regardless of who's stealing it. They had stole all the gold by convincing the people that they don't want it and don't need. But first, the enimey brought wine to our gaurds.
Gold and silver was used for money ever since the beginning of time until the greenback became money.
God never intended gold to belong to only one person for it circulates around the world and back and fourth many times over. My gold is your gold, your gold is my gold.
Imagine God coming to Adam, bringing him the animals, telling him to name them, then bringing him gold and saying this is to exchange goods with, what do you call it? And Adam said I'll call it money. Then Satan came along and said gold isn't money anymore so what do you call it? Some would call it a swindle most would call it not money and financial experts would call it inflation. Gold has had its role as money for a good reason. It represented labors and was easier to exchange services with than to carry other objects around, such as a pig to trade for milk from one and bread from another. Gold and silver could be easier divided. Gold was used for the big purchases and silver for the small ones. Since it was small enough to carry in a pocket and never wore out we still possess and use some of the gold from ancient times. The amount of gold in ancient days is a good addition to todays barter exchange as it circulates through out the rest of the world. As gold was exchanged among nations and passed down through the generations it was melted several times over to suit their needs.
Yes, Gold can get you to Heaven if used for charity.
The first record we have of gold and silver being used for money was as early as Abram of the old testament.
Gen. 42; 25 restore every man's money into his sack.
Genesis 24:22. ...a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets...of ten shekels weight of gold;...
Here we see that a shekel is a coin and there is further evidence of that. it shows that God created the value of money by weights and measures for man's welfare.
There's indications that gold may have been used ever since Adam and Eve:
Genesis 2:12 The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.
It's no sin to have gold but only to lust for it. Theft throws off the balance of equality as God decreeded it. It also shows Gods act of charity by giving man gold:
Gen. 13; 2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
Gen. 24: 35 And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.
Abram must have needed the gold or the LORD wouldn't have giving it to him. He entrusted it to the wise and charitable so the poor would not go without.
We further see that it was a blessing to spend gold, and the Lord didn't mind having some for himself (welfare):
Numbers 7:25 His offering was one silver charger, the weight whereof was an hundred and thirty shekels,
Lev. 27: 16 And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part of a field of his possession, then thy estimation shall be according to the seed thereof: an homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver.
Ex. 30: 13, This they shall give every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD.
Ex. 38: 24 All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the work of the holy place, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
We also see how the LORD ecreed the value of gold and silver.
2 Kgs. 7: 1, Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.
We can also see that there was an abundance of gold. The amount of gold King David gave for building the Temple was unmeasurable.
1 Chr. 22: 16 Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number.
Much gold was given to the temple and much of it was paid out to employees to build the temple. We don't have any of the gold from the temple today for Prophet Jerimiah hid it up. Although much gold was used there, there was plenty of gold to prosper, for Solomon was blessed with much more gold.
2 Chr. 1: 12; And God said to Solomon,... Wisdom and knowledge granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honor, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
Solomon needed gold to build up an army, and no one dare come up against him:
1 Kgs. 9:26-28
26 ¶ And king Solomon made a navy of ships in aEzion-geber, which is beside bEloth, on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom.
27 And aHiram sent in the navy his servants, shipment that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon.
28 And they came to aOphir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon.
Those, hearing of Solomon's wisdom and wealth came to see it for themselves and found that not only was Solomon rich, his servants were too, and all the kingdom, and they were happy too and they were all loyal to him. With such awe each gifted him with gold. Queen of Sheba came with gold of abundance to spend, and gave him an hundred and twenty talents of gold. And all the kings of Arabia and Governors of the country brought the king gold and silver. Chapmen and merchants brought him gold and silver. In one years time gold came to him weighing six hundred and threescore and six talents. And all the drinking vessels were of gold and all the vessels of the House of the Forest of Lebanon were of pure gold. every three years The king's ships went to Tarshish and brought back gold. The record of his gold goes on and on to no end. Other kingdoms and times have produced gold too.
Gold in other countries have made their way into our country with the exchange of goods. The colonies had coins from a variety of countries. Thomas Jefferson saw this confusing and America started minting its own coins in 1792. All citizens were free to mint gold and silver until 1873.
Its only been for the last forty years that the people have been without gold. Our country has had much gold, and All the down pits have been worked out on how to use gold for money through a period of centuries of experiences. How experienced are we in going without? Only 40 years in time and people are growing restless from the poverty it's brought them.
God wanted his children to prosper so He set the value of gold and He distributed the land out equally and he gave us talents to prosper. Through out the Bible He has instructed his children on how to prosper. That way there would be no rich and there would be no poor meaning everyone would have every thing they needed. He distributed out wealth equally with a set of directions to keep it balanced. In keeping these directions there would be no wars or crimes.
