Liberty Dollars Under Attack By US Government

A while ago I posted about Liberty Dollars.

Look what the Feds have been up to. It's a travesty!

Subject: FBI Raids Liberty Dollar – Confiscates All Ron Paul Dollars

Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters:

I sincerely regret to inform you that about 8:00 this morning a dozen FBI and Secret Service agents raided the Liberty Dollar office in Evansville.

For approximately six hours they took all the gold, all the silver, all the platinum and almost two tons of Ron Paul Dollars that where just delivered last Friday. They also took all the files, all the computers and froze our bank accounts.

We have no money. We have no products. We have no records to even know what was ordered or what you are owed. We have nothing but the will to push forward and overcome this massive assault on our liberty and our right to have real money as defined by the US Constitution . We should not to be defrauded by the fake government money.

But to make matters worse, all the gold and silver that backs up the paper certificates and digital currency held in the vault at Sunshine Mint has also been confiscated. Even the dies for mint the Gold and Silver Libertys have been taken.

This in spite of the fact that Edmond C. Moy, the Director of the Mint, acknowledged in a letter to a US Senator that the paper certificates did not violate Section 486 and were not illegal. But the FBI and Services took all the paper currency too.

The possibility of such action was the reason the Liberty Dollar was designed so that the vast majority of the money was in specie form and in the people's hands. Of the $20 million Liberty Dollars, only about a million is in paper or digital form.

I regret that if you are due an order. It may be some time until it will be filled... if ever... it now all depends on all our actions.

Everyone who has an unfulfilled order or has digital or paper currency should band together for a class action suit and demand redemption. We cannot allow the government to steal our money! Please don't let this happen!!! Many of you read the articles quoting the government and Federal Reserve officials that the Liberty Dollar was legal. You did nothing wrong. You are legally entitled to your property. Let us use this terrible act to band together and further our goal – to return America to a value based currency.

Please forward this important Alert... so everyone who possess or use the Liberty Dollar is aware of the situation.

Please click HERE to sign up for the class action lawsuit and get your property back!

Thanks again for your support at this darkest time as the damn government and their dollar sinks to a new low.

"There is no law that says goods and services must be paid for with Federal Reserve notes. Parties entering into a transaction can establish any medium of exchange that is agreed upon." - Andrew Williams, a spokesman for the Federal Reserve in Washington, D.C.

This is really troubling news. Liberty Dollars are a medium of exchange, they are not "counterfeit" U.S. coins in any way. The fact that people are looking for a real medium of exchange backed by real gold and silver as our Constitution requires (and as we have strayed from) seems to be making some folks in government and the Federal Reserve annoyed. Now why would that be? Please read these disclaimers.

Private barter currency is perfectly legal.
To see the TV news coverage of the raid check this out.

USA Today also did a piece on Liberty Dollars.

Also take a moment to consider this:
"The abandonment of the gold standard made it possible for the welfare statists to use the banking system as a means to an unlimited expansion of credit.... In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value.... Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the "hidden" confiscation of wealth.... [Gold] stands as a protector of property rights."
"This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the "hidden" confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard."

Gee, I wonder when Green Stamps or Foxwood Wampum Cards will be confiscated?
What about all those Frequent Buyer cards or other forms of barter? Are those next?

What a story!

So would Parker Brothers be next?
After all, they do print over $50 Million per year in Monopoly Money, twice as much as the US Mint.

I guess the government just gets unhappy when people don't buy into its scams and it has to actually compete.

I heard about this on the radio this morning and immediately thought of you!

This is something else, that's for sure!

Those bastards. You know, I was thinking of minting my own Headless Horseman coinage. I was probably going to use those chocolate coins with the foil on the outside. That way, when the economy collapses, at least I'll have a tasty snack.

Judy Aron said...

Headless - Well yeah - at least you'll have chocolate when the economy collapses. Didn't servicemen use chocolate for barter in Europe during WW2? That could certainly come in handy. Prisoners use cigarettes. Perhaps you could get a few cartons of that too, although the Cancer Society would frown on it.

Buy silver and gold. Seriously, the dollar is about to go into freefall. Even Dick Cheney is converting his fortune out of US currency. And I read on the BBC a week ago that even INDIA no longer trusts the dollar; it used to be that a tourist in India could use either rupees or dollars to pay admission to places like the Taj Mahal; now it's rupees-only. No joke.

You know I'm upset when I start using double semicolons in a sentence. I know better than that.
