not true at all

there were terrible panics under the gold standard.  Decade long depressions.  Gold is also highly variable in terms of value.

The experience of the great depression shows that if we were currently on the gold standard, inflation would be so terrible that people would hoard gold or melt it down and take it off the market.

I agree that the fed is a bunch of shit mostly pushed by wall street, who wanted to force America into a state of perpetual interest payments by authorizing the private banks to print money.  Our best economies always occurred when money printing was done by the department of treasury as authorized the us constitution.  If the treasury did it, we would save billions in interest payments to banks.  However the gold standard would devastate us, and probably just serves a different set of wallstreeters with investments in gold.  I wish more people spoke out against it.

2016 Iowa caucus watch: Rick Santorum and Rand Paul visiting soon

This is another reason why it is important to regulate home schooling

This is why it is particularly important that Senate not give a blank check to Dominionists to not educate their female children, with completely unregulated home schooling.  They are Santorum and Ron Paul’s base.  Since only 12,000 Iowans voted in the republican caucuses it doesn’t take very many of them moving in here to elect extremist candidates.  Why make the state a haven for sexists, John Birchers, and Neo-Confederates.  The man that made the racist, sexist comments at Cpac was a Rick Santorum, and Dominionist activists.  It is very dangerous for our country that these extremists are relevant candidates in our political process.
