    @mudzangandoro I would include the Democrats, if they were continually proposing state legislation bent upon nullifying federal law, but they are not doing that. The Republicans, on the other hand, seem to be proposing a great deal of this variety of legislation, and it is crazy.

    They can always exchange it for prepaid cash cards for x box live. Funny coming from a state that receives more in federal taxes than it gives.

    A lot less crazy then a trillion dollar coin to fix our monetary problems. I wonder why Germany is trying to take their gold stash back from the Fed.

    If you notice the stock market and the value of the dollar....they have been trying to slowly devalue and collapse the dollar for years now....

    @PoliticalSpice My bad, he is a republican, but I stand bythe rest of it. When inflation kicks in, and one day it will, having silver coin currency or gold would be a real advantage, but keeping people from leaving the stat with it would be difficult.

    @PoliticalSpice Sorry to disagree with you cousin but he is as republican as they come. And he seems to be on the wrong side of everything he speaks out about.

    Ah yes, ANOTHER example of the fine waste of time that the ultra-right-wing-conservative- "christian"-GOP-Tea- Party-fanatical-extremists are ALL about! Why ACTUALLY do something productive for society when pulling ludicrous stunts like this will allow you to pander to the uneducated, inbred, ignorant, and ill-informed masses that will vote you into office over and over again so you can continue to destroy their lives for them!

    We did this when we were colonies, it was a mess then and it will be a mess if you re-visit it. How will you perform interstate transaction using money that is only valid in one state? This ranks right up there with the 20 trillion dollar coin...

    Heck yeah, we could have a barter system, including so-called Assault Weapons to barter for goods and services- humor, you anal retentives, smile! ;o)

    It is an insane idea, for so many reasons. Is Virginia going to buy the reserves of precious metal it would take to back a currency, or are they just going to ask their citizens to trust them.

    It just gets harder and harder to be a conservative pundit these days, trying to defend this sort of nonsense.

    When I was in college (UF-Finance) this was the sort of thing that would come up after a few too many beers.

    We already have an alternative. When the Democrats finish the task of crashing our US Dollar, the Chinese Yuan will replace it as the international medium of exchange. We can all use RMB, the world's "hard" currency of the future. The hyperinflation he suggests is coming unless the Republicans are successful in curbing the excessive debt and spending. Obama and the Liberals are clueless that we have any kind of problem.

    These elected officials are giving new meaning to rampant stupidity every time they open their mouths. If they stopped being stupid we would have no monetary or economic issues. The payday loan mentality should be telling the American public it's time to clean house.

    Typical politician ignoring the problem. The real solution (the only solution) will cost them to much political capital, so they look for way to step around the problem. Stop buying votes with Tax payer dollars.
