Mr. Chairman:

Gold. Gold is the answer. That’s what Ron Paul says, and he’s been in the gold coin business, so he knows what he’s talking about. If the MNGOP gets out in front of this idea, we’ll go places. I swear. We’ll promise to Minnesotans that gold coins will become legal tender, and that Minnesota will issue its own money. Just like Mississippi and Alabama did during the Civil War. I used to collect that money when I was a kid, and it has only gone up in value. I wish I still had some, but I traded it for some football cards, well, one, but he was really famous player. That’s what my friend told me, anyway. And even the federal government is getting on the precious coins bandwagon. Did you see that it’s going to make a trillion dollar platinum coin?


Thanks for your feedback. If we like what you have to say, it may appear in a future post of reader reactions.
