I think this is the most brilliant idea our government has ever came up with.Which has more value? One ounce of Platinium or $16.5 Trillion one dollar bills. Hint: One is a precious metal worth $1900.00 an ounce. The other is worthless paper with a value of O. So, what are we waiting for, we can zero out our national debt and have a $1899.00 surplus. I figure we could let the Federal Reserve have $1.00 as a show of good faith in our dealing. You must remember, in our economy what they print for money whether in paper form or non precious metal is totally worthless.
