Do you really want to kill the progressive nanny-state and all leftist social-engineers? Return to the gold standard.
America’s left in all forms lives massive debt and printed money, courtesy of our printed, fiat currency and centrally-controlled monetary system. All statists/fascists/socialists must have a monetary system and currency that is absolutely under their control. Remove that from them - and they die immediately.
So YES - I am absolutely in favor of a gold standard.
Unfortunately, America is too far gone down the path of centralized government and its politics. A return to gold will never, ever happen.
No way 40 straight years of trade imbalances would’ve happened under the international gold standard. Transformation into a credit driven services economy ruled by a bi-coastal elite would’ve at least been slowed too. But do agree the Rubicon has been crossed, reality is that current system needs a global collapse before sound money can return. So with that in mind, hope the fiat works,and I’m all wrong about where this ends.
