Rep. Glen Bradley wants North Carolinians to coin their own currency

The wackiness just keeps on coming from newly-elected conservative and (former?) John Birch supporter, State Rep. Glen Bradley.

At 2:18 this morning (yikes!) the Franklin County Republican posted something entitled “Draft Language for NC Hard Tender Act of 2011” on his Facebook page. It appears to be Bradley’s rough draft of a bill modeled on a far right proposal in Utah to create “state money” In North Carolina that would be legal tender in the state.

Wonder if anyone will ask Berger and Tillis about that at their press conference tomorrow.

Next up: Repeal of that monstrous commie plot of fluoridation.

    No doubt the bill “Draft Language for NC Hard Tender Act of 2011? will be put where the light don’t shine – in “committee” to die a dark and lonely death. But the mindset will remain.

    No doubt. But it makes you wonder just who the heck some of these people rewriting our state laws really are and just a how many of them are card-carrying members of the lunatic fringe.

    I wonder if any one of these beginners have thought out what will happen if their dream comes true? I wonder if they have enough intellectual curiosity to think that far ahead and read up on money and how it works. Kinda doubt it. It’s a little gratifying to see these folks do their act and those who voted them in face the whirlwind. But very sad. For. Us. All.

    You need the Scooby bucks to buy the Scooby guns Bradley wants to manufacture in order to skirt federal law:

    NC is blessed to have Rep. Glen Bradley. He is a patriot. I hope he can run for President soon.

    Finally, someone is trying to put the federal government back in it’s constitutionally confined/defined space.

    Oh noes! Bradley wants to allow people to freely exchange shiny metal things for goods. What a cwazy guy! Grad your tin foil hats, Democrats!

    Sorry if your wet dreams of marginalizing the mellow yellow aren’t panning out boys. :-)
