Intro to the Liberty Dollar
Gold and silver money is back in use by a growing group of concerned Americans
Most Americans don’t realize the depth of America’s current monetary crisis, and those who do don’t stop using money in protest. Most people just shrug their shoulders instead. As the old saying goes, "you can’t fight city hall."
So for years, Americans have stood by and watched as the Internal Revenue Service has dipped deeper and deeper into our paychecks, and the Federal Reserve has entrenched itself into the economy. Maybe because we didn’t really want to know the truth, we’ve never even bothered to ask the tough questions.
In the same vein, no one questioned the Social Security program until just a few years ago. Everyone assumed it was healthy and would be solvent forever. But now we know that it's in deep financial trouble, and it's not clear whether or not it can even be saved.
The Federal Reserve Isn't Federal
It’s incredible how few people know the facts about the Federal Reserve. The organization chaired by Ben Bernake is not "Federal" – it is instead a cabal of private and international banks that does not answer to the United States government. And while there is some precious metal stored in Fort Knox, it doesn't back the debt based 'fiat' US dollar that they issue, because nothing backs it except your trust in the system! Even a casual look at the Fed’s history leads one to wonder how an institution that profits mightily from its own policies of victimizing Americans has maintained control over the money of the wealthiest nation on Earth. For those who have made a serious inquiry, the Federal Reserve is shadowed in deceptive origins and fraudulent policies.
Are people who attack the Federal Reserve just conspiracy theorists? Definitely not. Many don’t believe a conspiracy has taken place – they simply feel that the current monetary system is out of control.
Maybe they're right, and the Federal Reserve is an outgrowth of a few bad decisions made ninety years ago and carried forth to their logical extensions by well-meaning, but misguided, public servants. On the other hand, hundreds of authors and commentators have gathered an impressive body of facts and documentation that show how the U.S. Constitution was deliberately circumvented to allow the central bankers control over our money, and how the IRS uses scare tactics and even violence to browbeat American citizens. These students of the nation’s monetary system aren’t kooks - they’re professors, political scientists, judges, Congressmen and Presidents.
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
- Frederick Bastiat; economist, statesman, author of The Law
Bernanke knows the danger
but can't stop it
Whatever the true nature of the Federal Reserve, it is dangerous to the long-term financial health of your money and our country. Its money and its policies will eventually lead to total financial ruin, just as it nearly did during the Great Depression. The facts are inescapable – even the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Ben Bernanke, understands the danger and seems unable or unwilling to save us.
"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. If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was done in the case of gold.... The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves.
"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."
- Alan Greenspan; "Gold and Economic Freedom"
It's not quite monopoly money,
but it's a money monopoly
For the newly initiated, these revelations are followed by anger, frustration and a good old American shrug followed by, "What can I do?" Enter the Liberty Dollar - the solution the Federal Reserve's 'money monopoly'. On October 1, 1998, the first Liberty Dollar, which is 100% backed and 100% redeemable in gold and silver, rolled off the presses. The Liberty Dollar provides a simple solution: "Start using the Liberty Dollar to grow and protect your money - one dollar at a time."
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
– Edmund Burke
It's legal and everyone is doing it
It might surprise you to learn that it’s totally legal to issue your own currency like the Liberty Dollar. In fact, there are over sixty communities in the U.S. that issue their own money (many have been reported in media outlets like The Wall Street Journal, Parade, ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN.) Many national newspapers, magazines, and TV stations -- and even radio star Paul Harvey -- have covered the Liberty Dollar itself. Legally, The Liberty Dollar is a warehouse receipt for a specific weight of pure .9999 fine gold or .999 fine silver that is stored in a warehouse in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The warehouse receipt is your proof of ownership, which means if you hold the receipt, you own that gold and silver.
Remember the Post Office before FEDEX?
Bernard von NotHaus, the Monetary Architect for the Liberty Dollar, explains that for years America was saddled with a slow, unresponsive Postal Service. Then one day, against all the odds, FedEx brought competition to the heavily subsidized government agency that no one thought could ever change. To the surprise of many, the Postal Service responded and improved service noticeably. The Liberty Dollar emulates this model. It is a better currency that competes in the marketplace with US dollar. Liberty Dollar silver certificates fit in the cash register and function on a 1-to-1 basis with the US dollars so they are easy for businesses to use. The new currency is available in the same convenient denominations: $1, $5, $10 and $20 in silver plus a $1000 gold certificate.
The Liberty Dollar is superior money
Private Money is novel new product that is bringing millions of Americans together who are concerned about the money's loss of purchasing power, as examplified by higher gasoline and food prices. Through the use of beautiful artwork, an image of the Statue of Liberty, brilliant colors, serial numbers, silver foil, a hologram and superior counterfeit features on special paper, The Liberty Dollar is designed to solicit a response! And, voila! The number of concerned Americans using the new Libety Dollar has been growing ever since 1998. Over $20 million dollars has already been converted into Liberty Dollars, and as hard times ahead become painfully more evident, it is more important for you to protect your money.
The idea of the Liberty Dollar is to simply offer a proven, peaceful, and profitable solution to the steady loss of the purchasing power of your money. By converting your old, tired, depreciating US dollars into gold and silver Liberty Dollar certificates that are backed, insured, and guaranteed by a monthly independent audit, you have chosen to join thousands of other concerned American who are protecting themselves and our country from the US dollar and the posibility of a global financial crisis.
