Republicans Want a Gold Standard? The Silver Liberation Army Wants a Gold Audit
The Republicans might not have paid any lip service to their flirtation with the possibility of a gold commission at the RNC, which will be tasked with contrasting the status-quo with the implementation of a semi or full gold standard for the US Dollar, but they have already inserted the meme heavily into the next two months before the election. Knowing their true calculations is difficult, although what is two months of meme injection in an election year? Usually nothing more than a faded memory, a broken spoken social contract between the powers that be and the people.
Such a move based on current parameters of the global economic landscape would also mean a gold standard for all nations tied to the USD. (read: all nations?) By pre-empting China or Russia on a move to a gold standard – not to put the US at stark contrast with Russia and commercial-communist China – the US could be doing itself a foreign policy favor by eclipsing such a move by a non-world reserve currency power. It would be automatic competition at the level of ideas and would most likely result in a complete rebalancing of the global economic balance. This is something of which the Pentagon must be a part servicing the overall US state-enterprise mission of full-spectrum dominance.
Put into perspective, there can be no doubt that platitudes about a gold standard are merely talking points meant to seductively hoodwink the Ron Paul faithful. On a grander scale, there will be two systems perpetually unless a popular upswell divorces the past from the present. The ruling class has never lived in the same economy as the rest of the world and does not plan to do so ever. Hence, new transnational currencies such as the International Monetary Funds Special Drawing Right have been introduced to minimize the risk of peasant-exposure for the class above and beyond the rule of law and common tradition.
In the meantime, distraction. Gold Standard. Audit the Pentagon. Audit the Fed.
The proposal of a gold standard is quite a progressive thing, no matter how traditional it is. It is a radical departure from the runaway train of fiat totalitarian democracy on which we all ride. Perhaps not pushed by a bayonet on the end of a machine gun, the peripheral threats of the decline of western civilization through inflationary wealth confiscation and command-and-control arenas of commerce keep many in line.
But, for there to be a gold standard, as Silver Vigilante reader XC Skater pointed out, there must also then be a gold audit. This has been a concern of Ron Paul – and so therefore his faithful – for many years, and a part of his platform that the Republicans must heed if they are going to proceed discussing in the public limelight of a gold standard. Let us not forget that just last summer, 15 months ago, as gold reached record highs, Ron Paul brought forth his bill to audit the gold in Fort Knox. In essence, the Republican gold standard parade is nothing more than radical – for contemporary American economics – campaign rhetoric if they do not, before all, campaign on behalf of an Audit the Fed and Audit Fort Knox.
The three factors rely on each other for relevancy, and there can be little doubt about that. Without knowing what the true paper market amounts to and in what kind of mangled form, the commodity of gold can not be truly valued except for estimates on the best numbers keeping up with high-speed algo bots spinning derivatives webs of diluted delusion. All fiat currencies would have to be suspended for a term, before a new version of the bills or transaction method can be implemented. That’s a monumental undertaking that would result in wealth confiscation.
Thus, the Silver Liberation Army has a direct stake in this proposed new gold standard, even if it remains merely at the level of meme. The SLA must take this meme and batter it until it looks like a full-blown redress of the way things should be. An Audit of the Fed and an Audit of the gold at Fort Knox would put the world on a de facto gold standard over the course of little time. A derivatives market worth trillions would thereafter be exposed and blown-open pressure on JP Morgan would expose the COMEX rehypothecation-confiscation scam. Both gold and silver would create a new ruling architecture. Although this new ruling architecture might not be untotalitarian in attitude, the flux in the world could bring about, after much upheaval and swift transformation, a vastly newer – freer – culture.
Avoiding bipartisanship in the quest for a popular Audit of the Commanding Heights will be tantamount for the achievement of a fairer economic landscape. That’s why there can be no reprieve found in the hallowed basins of hellish politics. This is a bought cause by the very few. Control of the world like a Van Gogh on the wall, the vanity of power, these are things in which not all can participate.
The Republican Party has opened themselves up to a hearty discussion on a return to the gold standard. In debates between Obama and Romney, coming this Fall, not only must this gold standard rattle the minds of lifetime – even if unknowing – Keynesians until their heads hurt. Beyond that, discussion of Auditing the Fed, Auditing the Pentagon, Auditing Fort Knox, Auditing Wall Street, Auditing Progress, Auditing the System must follow or abate. If it does not, then this election will have been a scam. Even if it is, there will still be mammoth doubts about its legitimacy other than as a ritual so that the population can relieve itself of a little pent up aggression – a revolution every four years.
