Full bio

The Sound Money Defense League is focusing like a laser beam on restoring gold and silver to it's historic role as America's constitutional money. It is working at the state and federal level to:

  • Rally hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans to force the Obama administration to account for America's gold reserves before they start shredding documents and deleting emails as Obama's term nears its end.

  • Work with allies in elective office to introduce legislation to support sound money policies, such as auditing the nation's gold reserves, auditing the nation's central bank monopoly (otherwise known as the Federal Reserve), and supporting the recognition of sound money, i.e. gold and silver, as legal tender.

  • Through aggressive legal and grassroots citizen action, expose and punish the global money managers running the Federal Reserve and the tax-and-spend politicians who undermine the U.S. dollar by supporting crushing debt, crony bailouts, and reckless money printing.
