Default WTF?? New Amendment proposal

WTF is going on in Congress that anyone there would feel the need to even propose such an amendment?? Search it out for yourself, I pull this off the Library of Congress website. http://thomas.loc.gov


Quote:

1st Session

H. J. RES. 41

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to prohibit the President from entering into a treaty or other international agreement that would provide for the United States to adopt as legal tender in the United States a currency issued by an entity other than the United States.

Yep. I think its a good thing too. How do you feel about a one world money with Russia and China. Geithner said he was open to moving the United States OFF of the U.S. dollar.

Quote:
First he voiced a desire for new, shared powers with the FDIC that would enable him to break up financial companies at will.

Then, he took a walk on the currency wild side today by saying that he would be open to the idea that a different currency could be used to settle worldwide trading accounts. So why the controversy? Simply this: The currency he spoke of would replace the almighty U.S. dollar.

Geithner told the Council on Foreign Relations that he would be “quite open” to abandoning the U.S. dollar as the primary global reserve currency. According to reporting by our colleague Joanna Slater, Geithner said he could evaluate using a melded currency called Special Drawing Rights. Later, Geithner backtracked by saying that the dollar is still the world’s dominant reserve currency and that the U.S. is committed to ensuring it remains so. The White House had to issue a statement agreeing after Geithner’s remarks hurt the trading value of the dollar.

I think, in these times where nationalism is being poo-pooed for internationalism. . .

This is a great amendment.

Let me be as honest as possible.

U.S. A. FIRST. . . all other nations second. If we can help them, WONDERFUL, it is incumbent upon us to do so as part of the international community. But not to the detriment of the US.

At least you get to keep yours. My esteemed Government is determined to see me in a land of the Euro!

F**k that shit....

If they want one currency in Europe then adopt Sterling...otherwise they can all just STFU. Why not totally sell us down the river and we can all use Nazi Gold as currency.

(Besides, my keyboard doesn't even have that crappy Euro symbol on it. Yet strangely enough does have and $ - Go figure!)

At the rate things are progressing technologically, physical paper money might disapear in the next 50 years. Then, when everything is electronic, a treaty providing a global currency could be enacted overnight. This Act would bar a future president from doing that. It's a smart move. We don't want another League of Nations.

[insert Obama joke here]

The thing of it is.... The Constitution says only the Senate can authorize a treaty with a foreign nation by a 2/3rds vote.
