This isn't yet another in a long series of articles lamenting the Federal Reserve, power, politicians, corruption, and the hopelessness of fighting the status quo. What's the marginal utility of the Nth plus one article reiterating these points? Nearly zero. No, this article is about something else.

It's about you.

What would you do, if you were governor, and a fringe issue turned into a bill came to your desk? To all appearances, there is little popular support. The benefits, if any, seem far removed from the practical business of governing. Few people even cared.

What's that, you say? Gold isn't like that? There are many people who want gold, the benefits are important, and what could be more practical than honest money? I can't hear you. I CAN'T HEAR YOU!

Neither could Governor Ducey.

Do you value honest money? Do you understand how and why the regime of the paper dollar is hurting us? If you care, please consider calling your legislators in Arizona or wherever you are. Please consider donating to the Gold Standard Institute. We can do a lot with a little, but we can't change the monetary system without your support.
