When U.S. Made Gold Illegal
No State shall...coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.... ARTICLE I, SECTION 10, CLAUSE 1 - U.S.A. Constitution
"Gold possession declared illegal"
This was against the American principles, Democracy, the Constitution, Freedom, Criminal Law ... etc.
This assault against the constitution of the U.S.A. when President Roosevelt Declared a National Emergency, declared gold possession by American Citizens as illegal in the Trading with Enemies Act on April 5, 1933. Executive Order 6102 Most Americans are unaware of this, but in the 1930s, by way of Executive Order 6102, President Franklyn D. Roosevelt actually outlawed gold ownership.
The Order forbade “…the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States.” Once the Order had been enacted, owning gold became a federal crime, punishable by ten years in federal prison and a $10,000 fine; no individual, partnership, association, organization, or corporation could possess monetary gold, in any form, for any reason. The Order commanded all U.S. citizens to, at once, relinquish the gold they rightfully owned to the U.S. government. Citizens were then given paper dollars for their gold, at a price of $20.67 per ounce. When all gold was collected, FDR immediately devalued the dollar by reissuing the price of gold at $35 an ounce. In other words, U.S. residents that turned in their gold lost almost 50% of that savings value overnight!
