Are Monetary & Banking Crises Inevitable in the Near Future?

"Homeland Security" -- For What and For Whom?

As most of my readers know, I have long advocated the use of alternative currencies, consisting of silver and gold, in order to return America to constitutional and sound money. There are three means by which such alternative currencies could be introduced into the economy: (i) through an act of Congress; (ii) by State legislation, one State at a time; and (iii) by the private action of individuals. At the present time, option (i) is likely impossible; and option (ii) will require a fair amount of political organizing and “grass-roots” lobbying in suitable “target” States before the first such statute can be enacted. For the time being, then, that leaves option (iii) as the only way to move ahead immediately. Of course, purely private action alone cannot reform even one State’s monetary system.

But, besides protecting those individuals who learn how to use alternative currencies in their own financial transactions, private action can help to educate other members of the general public about this issue, so that they can be mobilized for political action. In some situations (such as this offer), where the value of silver and gold are rapidly fluctuating in the marketplace as against paper currency, where the monetary value of the transaction is relatively small, and where the likely number of such transactions occurring over a lengthy period of time may be large, “gold clauses” may prove to be too cumbersome to use. But in many other situations, particularly when a significant length of time may occur before the payment for some good or service is finally made, they can provide a major degree of protection against loss in the real value of a contract that would otherwise occur were some paper currency employed as the medium of exchange and legal tender for the transaction.

In order to provide information necessary for people to make informed choices on this matter, I have prepared a booklet entitled “GOLD CLAUSES” AND “SILVER CLAUSES” IN FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS: A PRACTICAL STUDY CONCERNING THEIR ORIGIN AND USE. I believe that this will greatly assist anyone in evaluating the potential usefulness of a “gold clause” in his personal financial affairs—and will certainly simplify, and greatly reduce the cost of, the research an individual—and especially an individual’s attorney, accountant, or other business councillor or advisor—would need to perform in order to evaluate the situation in a competent manner. Moreover, as the Federal Reserve System slips deeper and deeper into crisis, this information could prove invaluable to individuals who appreciate the utility of separating their financial arrangements, as much as may be practicable, from the central-banking system and its fiat currency.

Edwin Vieira, Jr., holds four degrees from Harvard: A.B. (Harvard College), A.M. and Ph.D. (Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences), and J.D. (Harvard Law School).

For more than thirty years he has practiced law, with emphasis on constitutional issues. In the Supreme Court of the United States he successfully argued or briefed the cases leading to the landmark decisions Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, Chicago Teachers Union v. Hudson, and Communications Workers of America v. Beck, which established constitutional and statutory limitations on the uses to which labor unions, in both the private and the public sectors, may apply fees extracted from nonunion workers as a condition of their employment.

He has written numerous monographs and articles in scholarly journals, and lectured throughout the county. His most recent work on money and banking is the two-volume Pieces of Eight: The Monetary Powers and Disabilities of the United States Constitution (2002), the most comprehensive study in existence of American monetary law and history viewed from a constitutional perspective.

He is also the co-author (under a nom de plume) of the political novel CRA$HMAKER: A Federal Affaire (2000), a not-so-fictional story of an engineered crash of the Federal Reserve System, and the political upheaval it causes.

His latest book is: "How To Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary" ... and Constitutional "Homeland Security," Volume One, The Nation in Arms...

He can be reached at his new address:
52 Stonegate Court
