My unlikely nomination is....
wait for it...
wait for it....
My first act as president - abiding by the Constitution!
You'd be shocked at the changes you'd see.
"No State shall... coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts..."
You know those green sheets of paper in your back pocket? They're unConstitutional.
What you going to do when people start shaving little bits of gold and silver off the coins?
Has happened and would happen again if coins were made of a real valuable metal.
Shavings? it's not hard to measure the weight of money.
Also, you know those ridges on the sides of dimes and quarters - that's how you protect against shavings. That's why those ridges exist -- not to increase friction.
But going further... Ben Bernanke just created 600 billion + dollars OUT OF THIN AIR.
shaving a few slices of gold off of a coin vs. increasing the money supply x5 over ten years...
which one is worse?
I love this guy. Yes, me for president, Rogers for chief adviser.
Well now how did he do that?!?!
I sure wish I was a magician capable of making money out of thin air
Lets just say that at one point coins were made of valuable metals the the punishment for shaving the metal was very severe. I am sure I could shave from inside the grooves or off the face, weighing a coin with a very accurate scale set is likely the only way to discover a small bit was shaved off and what if I didn't do the shaving but was given a shaved coin? (having forgot to get my very sensitive scales out when given the coin)
Those papers are issued by Congress, not the states.
I would have thought you would abolish real estate taxes on Montana shacks.
Oh I will vote for her!
Pretty! (what better reason is there to vote for anyone?!?!)
I'm not sure, but I would love to check for ya, Jimmy.
You're not sure but you'll check?
Not only will you check but you would love to check?
I will leave that one alone.
If I have to choose someone other than my wife I will say
Jennifer Love Hewitt or Shakira.

Too bad there is not an article or amendment in the Constitution that outlines how The President of the United States of America should act and behave. I don't think one has been necessary until Trump has come into office.When I was in the Air Force, the military had/has the Uniform...
