"Of all the contrivances for cheating the laboring classes of mankind, none has been more effective than that which deludes them with paper money."
Senator Daniel Webster
Gold as Money
In the Olden Days during the election of 1896 the GOP stood for Gold and Sound Money.
But the election of 1896 is a long dead world far, far away in the dim past.
That old "Conservative" GOP is dead.
The GOP of today is in a bidding war with a Marxist Democrat Party to print countless trillions of dollars to buy votes.
In the olden days U.S. money was backed by gold.
By abolishing a gold backed dollar the politicians were
free to print all the money needed to buy their
re-election every two years.
