The bill is short and a very interesting read. It would be great if we had a parallel currency of gold and silver to pay taxes and other State obligations. You can use US coins now but only at the horrendously undervalued face value. This bill allows for the current fair market value of the precious metal to be used. It is important that currency has instinct value as it makes it harder for the bankers & government to create it out of thin air. Alan Greenspan 1966 article Gold and Economic Freedom,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."  Ludwig von Mises The Theory of Money and Credit (1912) “It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments.” Of course the US Constitution specifically disallows both State and the Federal government from issuing bills of credit or paper currency and it is only the State with U.S. Constitutional power to declare legal tender and only if it is gold and silver coins. See Article I Section 10 No State shall …; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;

“If you can destroy the money, you can then destroy the economy, and that’s what we have been doing,” Congressman Dr. Ron Paul  January 3, 2012 at Rock the Caucus Assembly at Valley High School Gym

“There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” John M. Keynes from The Economic Consequences of the Peace
