BRING BACK THE GOLD STANDARD.
But they killed Kennedy for wanting to do that, and asking "ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY". A blasphemous statement today. God forbid we be aloud to do for ourselves or be rewarded for that.
But to answer your questions. Yes, Unsure but I bet its lots, and there are no FACTS contradicting this. We pay to print the money, and then PAY interest for the rights to use it. And our budget NEVER counts for paying off any interest on our national debt just the interest. Its like only paying the interest on your credit card each month and NOT any principle.
Wake up America, we do not own our own money.
