Balanced Budget Article V Convention?

There have been some states who have ratified the call for an Article V Convention, to discuss amending the Constitution to require a “balanced budget”.

Take note: there is no such thing as a “balanced budget” without requiring the United States to use gold or silver as currency, as it was (mostly) until Nixon cut off the last remaining link of the dollar to gold.

For a balanced budget, all that a corrupt government would have to do is to just decree more fiat currency into existence, or what we traditionally call “print money”. You’re back where you started.

It the government was constrained to use real money (like gold or silver) to collect taxes and pay debts, there would be no way they could get away with confiscating enough of the fruits of the people’s labor to make us work all the way until May to get to what’s called “Tax Freedom Day”, which represents what the government confiscates –extorts from us– as “taxes”.

And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;–John 2:15
