Yukon Cornelius: You’re going to stay with me and we’ll all be rich with the biggest silver strike this side of Hudson Bay. Silver!
Hermey: I thought you wanted gold.
Yukon Cornelius: I changed my mind.
Senator Greg “the Flogger” Walker, the man who replaced the estimable Sen. Garton, has introduced SB 453 which would require state and local government to conduct transactions in gold. Among other things:
[A]fter December 31, 2009, the state and political subdivisions may not compel or require any person to recognize, receive, pay out, deliver, promise to pay, or otherwise use or employ anything but gold and silver coin (in that form or in the form of a designated electronic gold currency) as media of exchange with respect to [taxes, loans to the state or political subdivision, purchase or sale of real estate by the government, condemnation payments, court judgments, or contracts or wages with the government.]
. . .
[A]ll payments to the state required under IC 6-7 (tobacco taxes) must be made in electronic gold currency.
What’s next? The Ron Paul dollar to be the official currency of Indiana?
