Virginia bill to move back to gold
Virginia, originally named after the virgin Queen Elizabeth, and perhaps the first truly "American" colony has proposed a bill to move back to the gold standard.
The goal of this bill is to allow Virginia to control their own monetary status. It's a bitter and extreme counter measure to growing dissent towards federally operated mints and banks.
The bill was voted upon democratically today, and an overwhelming majority opted to pass it. As a result it will now move towards the US senate, where it will likely be crushed , and omitted from the history books.
This is worrisome because the people are beginning to distrust banks as they did before "the great depression". This comes only one month after California and Texas attempted to secede , both of which were denied.
Regardless, it is a shame to see the country in a pitiful state of disorder, unable to solve it's own issues at the federal level.
