State Sen. Lee Bright (R-Roebuck) says that federal spending and increased monetary intervention by the Fed have placed the entire US Federal Reserve system on a path to monetary collapse. And when the crash comes, state residents will need to rely on the stable South Carolina currency to weather the storm.
"If folks lose faith in the dollar, we need to have some kind of backup," Bright told the Spartanburg Herald-Journal on Friday.
Bright's proposed legislation states that "many widely recognized experts predict the inevitable destruction of the Federal Reserve System's currency through hyperinflation in the foreseeable future; and ...
South Carolina can avoid or at least mitigate many of the economic, social, and political shocks to be expected to arise from hyperinflation, depression, or other economic calamity related to the breakdown of the Federal Reserve System only through the timely adoption of an alternative sound currency that the state's government and citizens may employ without delay in the event of the destruction of the Federal Reserve System's currency.The legislation calls for the creation of a joint legislative subcommittee which would study the "the need, means, and schedule for establishing such an alternative currency."
This guy would have an argument about South Carolina being more financially stable than the "doomed" Fed if it wasn't for the fact that the state receives $1.35 in benefits from Washington for ever federal tax dollar the state collects.
In other words, the rest of the country is financially better off with South Carolina gone. I say, good riddance. You want to make America stable? Secede. You're costing the rest of us good money to support you. Your state is costing the country more than it's worth.
You sure you want to leave there, ace?
