Jason Kirby wrote an editorial THE AMERO vs. THE DOLLAR which interested me. If you have been following my blog then you know I have had a few posts about the North American Union and there has also been little discussion in the media about how the North American Union is being formed. CNN's Lou Dobbs has spoken about it many times. Here's another link.
Of course there are people in the government who deny the formation of the NAU, yet people in Canada have also begun to object to this "deep integration".
Associated with this scheme is also a plan to replace the Dollar, and the Canadian dollar and the Peso with the 'Amero', very much in the same fashion as the Euro is used in lieu of European currencies. People in the government deny this as well (as Lou Dobbs' video pointed out).
The thought of replacing the Dollar with another currency called the Amero has raised more than a few eyebrows.
As a line in a National Ledger article reads, "Our currency will be replaced with the 'Amero'. And, we'll be one giant step closer to the U.N.'s perverse dream of a one-world government."
One must recognize that the currency we now use is not really ours to begin with.. it belongs to the Federal Reserve. That is certainly something worth noting if you don't know about it. With regard to currency backed by real gold and silver, check out a previous post which talks a bit about the Liberty Dollars being produced in the US.
Texas Congressman Ron Paul has actually spoken a lot about our monetary policy and he fears a collapse of the dollar is eminent on our current course .. that is probably just about when the Amero will make its debut.
In the article mentioned above, Jason Kirby says this: That Federal Reserve System currency is already not ours and that our currency has long since been replaced.
He goes on to explain, and even show specimens, of what our real coinage used to be before it was replaced.
The coinage and paper notes used to be exactly what the U.S. Constitution mandates we citizens of the United States of America use as money. The laws, and the code, of the United States of America at that time sustained the circulation and use of the specimens as money. Our money was not debt. It was wealth. It was born of nature and worked by the National mint into what it is. It was an asset which was not simultaneously someone else's liability. Debt freedom, once achieved, was much closer to absolute under such a money system. It bore no interest except when its owner consented to lend it to a borrower for a rate of return. When it was spent, it was considered at common law that a debt was paid. And it respected the tradition from time immemorial that in exchange, value would be exchanged for value; it was equitable. When it was saved, instead of spent, it preserved the wealth of the saver, who could reasonably expect prices to be within reasonable range of what they were when the coin was saved. It was backed by gold and silver.You just have to read the rest as he concludes:
Our currency enjoyed the protection of the law and counterfeiters faced capital punishment. Coin clipping, shaving, sweating, mixing with base metals, all being ways in which kings and princes cheated the public, even our own government was prohibited from such activities.
Paper money was in use and that was acceptable as long at the paper promised to pay gold or silver coin on demand. If the paper circulated, then the coin it represented was on deposit; if the coin was circulating, then the paper was not circulating. The silver and gold certificate was a token, but a lawful claim on the real coin.
By law, the SUBSTANCE of OUR money was gold and silver bullion, and the LAWS of money in the United States made gold and silver coin LAWFUL MONEY.
Where do you find such specimens of money today? In coin shops and personal collections.
What we had then (gold, silver coin) was replaced with what is today in your pocket and your bank account. Today, we use THEIR money. You cannot tell me that Federal Reserve Notes are our money. The Constitution does not contemplate them. The First Money Act of April 2, 1792 does not contemplate them. The code of the United States for most of our history does not contemplate them. It is not our money. It doesn't matter that it has been around since granddad was a young man. Crime has been around for a long time too. The long lived perpetration of a wrong does not lend it legitimacy. It is alien to the Constitution, and our money is effectively in exile. Their money resembles ours, more or less, if you need glasses or don't read; there are pictures of our dead Presidents on it. Many Americans simply believe it is our currency because that is the way it has been since their birth, and they don't know what they are looking at. Or they do and do not distinguish between real value and debt. We, including those of us who know better, begrudgingly use it mainly because our own government refuses to follow the Constitution on the money issue. And we must use something so we use this. Our government has long since bought into central banking with debt-based irredeemable paper. If you want to read why, look up Alan Greenspan's essay, "Gold and Economic Freedom," which gives as good an explanation as any: it is the easiest way to set up and maintain a socialist welfare state.
In the final analysis, no one should be worried about our money being replaced with the Amero, because (A) the coin money of the Constitution as already been replaced and we have been using their irredeemable debt-based money for a long, long time. We are using exactly the money that the bankers, not the founding fathers, would have us use. The move from the above shown coin money of the Constitution, to that of the Federal Reserve System was unimaginably VAST in terms of its legal, financial, and sovereignty implications. And (B) we are not really being threatened with a second replacement, but only a cosmetic alteration to make it psychologically acceptable to this so-called "Union."Even though the "Federal" Reserve Bank has the name FEDERAL in it's title, it has no connection with the Federal Government. The President of the U.S. and Secretary of the Treasury do not sit on its board!! The Chairman is appointed for a period of 14 years. The President does appoint him but that is just a formality as the Fed can easily ruin an uncooperative President by causing a recession or depression.
To rephrase substantially the line in the National Register article that started all this inquiry: The plan to replace gold and silver coin with central bank debt was the necessary giant step closer to socialism's perverse dream of a one-world government. Socialism is not new. It goes back to the mid 1800's. They've had since their beginning, their agenda for the supremacy of the state and the limitation of individual property rights and individual liberties. A depreciated paper currency and State control of credit has always been part of their agenda. It is pointless to be alarmed about the Amero today with no way to go back to the gold and silver coin of the U.S. Constitution as the national money. It is as insignificant as changing the designs that appear on our copper quarters.
