    I am aware of this. That is how the whole system is corrupt. Ron Paul is the most honest, consistent, and least corrupt candidate in the campaign. His highest support comes from the military not some big corporation.

    This would be currency. Money is a store of value while currency is simply the physical method of enacting trade (i.e. medium of exchange). You essentially agreed with me if we ignore the improper usage of terms.

    It's called peaceable cooperation. When everyone plays by the same rules and treats each other with mutual respect then everyone benefits. When certain groups attempt to take more than they otherwise would be able through the use of force or coercion then everyone is penalized and even those on the receiving end of plundered loot do not benefit to the extent they otherwise would with cooperation.

    You are talking about a man who has been consistent in his message for decades. There is a reason he is unpopular with the Republican establishment and it's not because he is too agreeable with them. To suggest that he would flip-flop on his ideals just because he is elected President is laughable. Hell, there are those who would argue that he is uncompromising to a fault. I think out of all the candidates (this includes Obama) he has definitely been the most unflappable in his ideals.
    Hail to the King baby!

    "Now we simply declare an IOU as allegedly real money which it most certainly is not."

    No, I don't agree with you. The US $100 dollar bills are IOUs from us to whoever holds them. When they come back to this country and are used to buy genuine stores of value, the worm turns.
