MorphCity: Idaho Silver Gem Act Encourages Use of Silver Currency
Cassandra Anderson writes concerning Idaho State Representative Phil Hart's creation of a bill that would allow Idaho residents to pay their taxes with silver:
The Idaho Silver Gem Act serves as a model that other states and local governments can use. If the bill passes, people can use silver with confidence because the government of Idaho will accept it, too. The Idaho Silver gem Act will also help to prevent possible federal precious metal confiscation.

According to G. Edward Griffin, America’s monetary system is based on fiat money, it has no intrinsic value and it is not asset- backed. Federal Reserve notes have value because of government regulations (the Legal Tender laws) that mandate their use under the threat of fine or imprisonment. The Legal Tender laws require people and businesses to accept Federal Reserve notes for payment, if Federal Reserve notes are offered as payment. However, people, businesses and even governments can also accept payment in the form of gold, silver or any other thing of value- they are not tied to accepting only Federal Reserve notes.
