I have been waiting for the dollar to be dropped by countries U.S. fascists usually bully. The dollar price of gold is going up steadily which means deep trouble for common people since their wages are extremely low in the U.S. Of course, the U.S. fascists want their under population dead, so a deep depression only furthers their quest. Dead commoners don’t argue with the aristocrats about their social pain.

While stopping excepting Dollars for Death is a good move economically, the Not Federal, No Reserves and not a bank fiat counterfeit currency being almost completely worthless on it’s way to dying with a whimper, stopping exporting death for any currency would be a much better option.

Purchase in rubles, barter or Russian Treasuries. A familiar ring except sovereign Russia has a more impressive balance sheet among other items.
