Conservative Presidential Candidate Advocates Return to Sound Money

"Our entire financial system is based on an illusion, with a foundation built on quicksand. We spend more than we earn, we consume more than we produce, we borrow more than we save – and we cling to the fantasy that this can go on forever. The glue that holds this crumbling scheme together is a fiat currency called the Federal Reserve Note, created out of thin air by an international banking cartel called the Federal Reserve ...

So far, the only solution being talked about is more of the same failed monetary policies that got us into this mess in the first place – more fake money, more debt, more usury. It is time to demand a return to ... the constitutional principle of sound money."

-- Chuck Baldwin, at the 2008 Conservative Leadership Conference

Supporting monetary reform is an issue by no means limited to social liberals. The Constitution Party's platform states:

"The Constitution Party recommends a substantive reform of the system of Federal taxation. In order for such reform to be effective, it is necessary that these United States:

  • Return to the money system set forth in the Constitution;

  • Repeal the Federal Reserve Act, and reform the current Federal Reserve banks to become clearing houses only; and

  • Prohibit fractional reserve banking."
More information on the Constitution Party ticket is available on the Baldwin/Castle 2008 campaign website. Odds are, they are on the ballot in your state!

Update: Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin today.
