I have recently become a US citizen, biggest reason is because I do want to vote. I have done my best and studied trying to understand the political system, and sometimes I get into arguments, with friends who does not share my views. To me it's ok to have different opinions,and I do try my best to understand why some people seem to choose what's not in their best interest.
Anyway, I'm now in an argument with an old friend and I,m trying to respond, but I've googled and can't find an answer that makes sense ? nor do I understand what my (maybe soon to be former friend) is trying to say. I don't feel I'm doing anything wrong by copying his text , since I do not enclose his name, so here it is .
I questioned what he meant by this line .........the make believe currency has driven this country into the toilet.
and this is his response, which I don't understand ?
FYI Eva, the fine print on a 1950 $10. note states "THIS NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER FOR ALL DEBTS PUBLIC AND PRIVATE AND IS REDEEMABLE IN LAWFUL MONEY AT THE UNITED STATES TREASURY OR ANY FEDERAL RESERVE BANK"
I didn't make up the make believe currency, the gubmint and the bankers did.
As fine print explains that paper currency is NOT "Lawful Money", so now you know, Look and you will learn
I would appreciate if someone could take the time and explain what he means, and how I should reply.
