Thread: Why not revive the Liberty Dollar?

  1. #1

    Default Why not revive the Liberty Dollar?

    The Liberty Dollar was shut down by banking goons and it's founder Bernard von Nothouse arrested. He was put on trial and due to the vast numbers of ignorant morons out there (no doubt voting banker lackeys obama-romney) from which the jury was selected, he was found guilty. He faces upto 15 years in jail.

    The charges was that he was counterfeiting US currency when it's obvious even to a blind man that his silver and gold coin tokens look nothing like any legal tender coin.

    Essentially the bankers wanted to shut him down as his Liberty Dollar was proving too popular and exposed the worthlessness of paper money.

    How about reviving the Liberty Dollar but this time getting the US mint to sign off that the coin's design looks nothing like any legal tender coin. Bankers can't pull the scam of claiming the coins are an attempt to counterfeit money if they agree ahead of time it's not a counterfeit.

    Interview with one of Bernard's associates who was also arrested and facing imprisonment :

    Ah! the use of threats to keep the sheep in line.

    Surely last signs of a failing system filled with scams & schemes is the use or threat of use of violence as a means of robbery.

    The sad reality is the system builds up a load of dependants aka the gravy train crowd. From bankers, to gold plated pension recipients, to SS ponzi schemers..etc, all these become part of the rabble clamouring to keep the rest enslaved to the paper money system. Their very careers if not survival is dependant on it.

    The real issue with this thing was not that the tokens looked like any US Coin (although that was a prosecution contention).

    The real issue was that the Liberty Dollar organization actively promoted the use of their tokens as legal tender, and in fact, in place of legal tender.

    Anybody, right or wrong, that steps on the Fed's turf is going to get stepped on.

    All you have to do is make a tradeable 1-oz silver round - you don't have to assign it a face value and claim "legal tender" status for it.

    Many types of "trade" silver tokens have been issued, from 1900 to the present. AOCS is an organization, for example, that promotes this legal activity.

    Isn't that interesting! The Fed invented a bull$hit term 'legal tender' to replace the word 'money'. And look how effective they were!

    I'm not sure if von Nothouse made the stupid mistake of calling his product 'legal tender' but just look at how how many people right here use it, just as if it actually did mean the same thing!

    Apprently nothouse called his coin Liberty DOLLAR. (strike one)

    Only federal reserve paper can be called a dollar.

    Also he had the $ on his coin (strike two)

    That's the symbol for federal reserve paper.

    The rest of the arguments given by prosecutors were a load of BS. Nobody who isn't an idiot can confuse legal tender with a Liberty Dollar. Despite millions in liberty medallions in circulation, the prosecution could barely find anyone to testify they had been cheated with counterfeit money having received liberty medallions. If anything the value of silver had climbed and anyone with such coins would have tripled their gains.

    But since the govt is controlled by private bankers and morons keep voting in their lackeys obama-romney, we are stuck.

    Disney Dollars, casino tokens, all sorts of things, say "One Dollar" (or equivalent) on them. They don't get in trouble for it, because the items are not promoted as "legal tender" in general commerce.
