It's time to play 'Are You Smarter Than An FBI Agent?'


8:20p ET Wednesday, January 3, 2008

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Despite the FBI's raid on its offices in Indiana and mint in Idaho and the seizure of its inventory seven weeks ago, Liberty Dollar is back in business, taking orders for 2008-dated medallions and promising delivery around the end of this month.

The design of the Liberties has been changed a bit, apparently to help ensure that people no smarter than FBI agents are not confused into thinking that the Liberties are official U.S. government currency. (Helpful hint: U.S. government currency in the form of coins consists of base metal and relies for its value on the federal law making it legal tender, while Liberties consist of precious metal and thus have great intrinsic value less vulnerable to debasement.)

Of course there's not full assurance that Liberty Dollar will actually be able to deliver any orders taken now. While Liberty Dollar's founder, Bernard von NotHaus, remains at large and incorrigible in defense of the right to bear honest money, the government still may move to arrest him for sedition and seize the company's inventory again.

But then between the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the Trading With the Enemy Act, and the Emergency Economic Powers Act, the government might also try to haul you away along with everything you own, until such time as our spineless Congress remembers how to spell "habeas corpus."

That is, you're taking a chance just by staying in the United States and working to restore the Republic. So if you want to take another chance in that direction, you can learn about Liberty Dollar's new medallions here:
