Did You Know that a man named Bernard von NotHaus has been issuing silver coins to replace the dollar since 1998? Nothaus's organization National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve and Internal Revenue Code issued these "liberty dollars" which bore a resemblance to normal U.S. coins. His intention:
"NORFED’s purpose was to mix Liberty Dollars into the current money of the United States. NORFED intended for the Liberty Dollar to be used as current money in order to limit reliance on, and to compete with, United States currency."NotHaus was convicted by a federal jury for creating and selling these coins today. His actions constituted a conspiracy against the United States. So much for following the Constitution...
