So if we follow your advice overnight gold becomes worthless and the dollar
becomes worthless and everybody lives happily ever after. I don't think

And that should tell you something right there, gold is nowhere near the
most important means of economic exchange, the dollar is, that is to say
the faith that the government of the USA will do what it promises to do,
like pay its creditors when it says it will. As I said money is a very
abstract thing, the only thing holding it together is faith and trust,  and
it is this faith and trust that you are determined to destroy. But they all
lived happily ever after.

OK, these facts can not be repeated too often:

TEA PARTY member and presidential candidate congressman Michele Bachman
criticized the only smart thing Governor Rick Perry ever did, requiring all
sixth-grade girls to get vaccinated against HPV, the virus that is the
leading cause of cervical cancer. Perry later apologized for being smart
and promised never to do it again.  Oh and the flu vaccine causes mental
retardation too.

TEA PARTY member and presidential candidate Senator Rick Santorum proposed
a amendment that would require the teaching of creationism in schools.

TEA PARTY member and potential presidential candidate Senator Marco Rubio

"Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I’m not sure
we’ll ever be able to answer that. It’s one of the great mysteries.” (he
doesn’t even know the Bible, it says 6 days not 7)

TEA PARTY member Governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry bragged:

“[Evolution is just] a theory that's out there. I am a firm believer in
intelligent design as a matter of faith and intellect. In Texas we teach
both Creationism and evolution.”

TEA PARTY member and potential presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul
thinks prayer should be in public schools and refuses to dismiss the idea
that the Earth is only 9000 years old.

TEA PARTY member and presidential candidate congressman Michele Bachman

"There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel
Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.”

TEA PARTY congressman (and member of the House SCIENCE committee!!) Paul
Brown said:

"All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big
Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell. And it's lies
to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding
that they need a savior. You see, there are a lot of scientific data that
I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a
young Earth. I don't believe that the Earth's but about 9,000 years old. I
believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible

TEA PARTY Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell said:

"American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and
coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains. You know what,
evolution is a myth. Why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?”
