From a sound money perspective, this makes perfect sense. What better way to support sound money than for the government to sell its gold back to the people? Not only that, but it is one of the most moral things that the government could do to pay its debts. Let me ask, what is more moral, to sell the gold back to the people in order to pay the government debt, or to inflate the currency in order to pay the debt? I think that it’s a pretty easy decision, and I respect Ron Paul for staying completely consistent in his principles.

I doubt that the U.S. or South Africa (my home) have any gold in their vaults, just as I doubt that any country has any gold in their vaults. I challenge the CORPORATIONS (yes they are registered as corporations on the New York Securities Exchange, see Dunn and Bradstreet's lisings) known as the Republic of South Africa and the United States of America to not only disclose the amount of gold but to show it to us. They can't, cause it 'aint there.
