How very nice. A bunch of 19th century chuckleheads trying to bring back a glorious past that never actually existed
This is like saying that Bitcoin is a bunch of gold bugs trying to bring back something that never worked in the first place.
I call bullshit on that one. Bitcoin is 100x better than gold...
Hence the comparison.
Ron Paul does not want to take us "back" to something in the 19th century, he wants to take us FORWARD to something BETTER based on the principles which were usurped.
Ron Paul does not want to take us "back" to the gold standard. He wants to take us FORWARD to competing currencies which would include Bitcoin and all sorts of currencies that all compete to fill their own niches.
