    Maybe we can't bring everyone into paradigm at once.  But, if we can mint the TDC and show that the world doesn't end, maybe we can get our foot in the door of people's minds.

      like this...and maybe you are right but what if this one time we just keep pressuring for a solution that truly has the capacity to change the entire economic basis of our society for the better. Momentum is a rare and precious thing. I don't think we should waste it. The GOP ginned up this debt ceiling problem and PPCS is too important a tool to waste or limit on their stupidity.

        Look at the debate! If we do what the MSM wants, then they'll save the economy from the debt ceiling with PCS, and then trade it away for zip since the debt ceiling would then be a dead letter. Understand the MSM don't like the coin. They'd use it now to get around the Rs. But then they'd just restore the status quo and start poor mouthing us about how we have no money and have to cut the safety net!
