The high and mighty powers that be continue their relentless quest to keep simple Libertarian Republicans like Ron Paul down.
Federal agents raided the headquarters of a group that produces illegal currency and puts it in circulation… The organization, which is critical of the Federal Reserve, has repeatedly clashed with the federal government, which contends that the gold, silver and copper coins it produces are illegal. NORFED claims its Liberty Dollars are inflation free and can restore stability to financial markets by allowing commerce based on a currency that does not fluctuate in value like the U.S. dollar.
Oh so, all of a sudden, it's a federal crime to mass produce counterfeit money bearing the graven image of a presidential candidate? What, now we can't invent our own form of coin-based currency bearing the image of Congressman Ron Paul and slip it into circulation in an effort to wrest control of the U.S. economy away from the dollar and thus the federal government?
What's next? Will we lose the right to declare our backyards as sovereign nations? Or to take up arms against the local library? Or practice the religious rite of char-broiling our sisters in a spicy mesquite rub?
O, mighty Ron Paul! When wilt thou arise from our change purses and smite the enemies of teeny, tiny government? For this, we pray.
