The common money has become a fiat tool for bankers and people connected to print at will and then allow to trickle down to the rest of the folks. By eliminating the common money's ties to precious metals the money became a wealthy elite's insurance policy on power. This common money has become a tool of oppression rather than production. A currency limited by precious resources favors anyone who is able to sell their product on the market. A fiat currency favors anyone with the power to print. End the Fed and restore gold if you want to save the union.
