I have lost faith in the American monetary system and therefore I will only be accepting jobs that people will be me for in goods or service. I am accepting payment of gas, food, tools, etc...

Reason:
If someone pays me $100 today then tomorrow that $100 could/is worth $95 or less. With rising costs of living such as food and gas the American dollar is losing its purchasing power at a drastic rate.

This is the downfall of our EMPIRE! Here it is folks. Thanks to the bankers and politicians for screwing up our country.

Been doin it for years now.It is the only system were everything is fair and everyone walks away happy.Two people walk in and decide what they need and what the value of the goods are to them .

I'm sure your mortgage or car loan institution wants to be paid in eggs or lawn care services.

PS feel free to give me any of that worthless US currency, any denomination.

Never had that problem
It is a mentality.You have to go at it with the thinking of what value do the objects traded have in my life.Not what walmart says they are worth.Once you realize money is fake.

Who needs that crap. "Neither a borrower nor a lender be". Mortgages are an element of what caused our demise. FOOL!
I bought my vehicle for $1200 lasted me past three years and works fine. Gets me to point A to point B. Why would I want a brand new car that loses its value as soon as you drive it off the lot? My vehicle does the same thing a $40k vehicle would do. BTW if it fails and I scrap it I would get about $700 back on my original investment. Pretty damn good!

Secondly, you are not grasping the idea of inflation. I pointed out in my very first post that a $1 is losing its value everyday at an alarming rate. Read a book and learn basic economics. Fool!

As far as paying for stuff that we are "legally" obligated to pay for in what the courts deem to be enforceable tender, you are right, but I do not agree that we should be forced into paying for stuff with currency forced on us by laws.

And as for car insurance laws, I again do not agree that we should be forced into paying for something that is a "right". It is in our constitution that congress shall not restrict our freedom of travel. Requiring us to pay for car insurance that are privately run companies and not accountable to any elected members by the people for the people is inherently against our constitutional "rights".

NYS has a "No fault" insurance law, meaning that if I hit you with my car then your insurance pays for your car and your medical bills and my insurance pays for mine. If you understand that then why is it not possible for me to opt of insurance and take the risk of not being covered. In this scenario, If I hit you then you are still covered for you(No different then todays laws) and I would be out, But it would be my choice to take that risk that only effects me. Isn't this FREEDOM!

I should be free to chose and accepts responsibilities of my choices. Isn't that what every patriotic American touts as a slogan, "FREEDOM!" "Emerica' Fukk Ya!. Yeah right, we live in a nanny state that protects the dumb people and prevents natural selection.
