Bix Weir says more than just “good riddance” to the monetary metal – he actually praises the Lord that “gold is dead”. Here’s the details…
I’m not sure if Bix Weir is an American?
I don’t know.
There’s a point to the question which you will understand as you read on.
Bix claims to live in California, but for all intents and purposes, the once sound money advocate has completely abandoned and turned his back on the United States Constitution.
I took an oath “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic”, so please understand I can get upset and worked-up about stuff like this.
Especially because I like to hone in on the gold & silver parts of the Constitution.
I was even willing to lay down my life on some crappy, bombed-out road in Iraq since that oath meant that much to me.
And it really gets me worked-up when it comes to people turning their backs on the sound money cause after those same people were once so rightfully fighting for sound money.
First, the video and write-up where Bix is praising the Lord that gold is dead:
(Side note: I didn’t know at the ripe old age of 43 that I was an “old timer gold bug”. Oh well, you learn something every day I guess.)
There’s a dark truth that Gold Bugs refuse to acknowledge…the Banksters own and control all the Gold so WHY would we ever want to return to a Gold Standard?! The only people on planet Earth that would agree to return to a Gold Standard are Bankers and Old Timer Gold Bugs…sorry, it’s not going to happen…THANK GOD!
Think about how everybody gets mad that we have an “electoral college” instead of the “popular vote”.
That’s not a choice either.
It’s called The Supreme Law Of The Land, better known as the U.S. Constitution.
And it doesn’t ask for much, which is why it’s so frustrating that we don’t even do the little it tells us to do.
Regarding BIx’s commentary, last time I checked, the banksters didn’t “own” all of the gold, and for price, well, yeah, the cartel has been suppressing the price for decades, so I guess you can argue that right now the banksters “control all the gold” (even if the top gold holders are individuals and sovereign nations) but Bix’s statement misses the point, and they won’t be able to suppress the price forever.
As far as “why would we ever want to return to a gold standard?”
Because it’s not a choice.
See what I just said above.
Here’s the thing: Returning to the gold standard isn’t a cake walk: It requires problems to be solved and financial burdens to be endured as it gets implemented – things that I guess escape others who are unwilling or unable to solve problems and/or sacrifice.
Simply put – It’s the right thing to do.
There’s a reason they call it “Honest Money”, or why some even call it “God’s Money”.
If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, or for additional information on why sometimes Half Dollar gets worked up about gold, silver, and the U.S. Constitution, please read up on Article 1 Section 8 (Weights and Measures), Article 1 Section 10 (REQUIRED Bi-metallic Gold & Silver Standard), and even the Coinage Act of April 2, 1792 (Original definition of the dollar).
One last time because it needs repeating: Constitutionally, it’s not a choice – A bi-metallic gold & silver standard is required.
Granted, I know the government no longer abides by the Constitution, but Patriots do.
Free people do.
Sovereign people do.
Which kind of makes you wonder…
And with Bix’s latest proclamation, it only stokes my fire even more.
