Late cynical Austrian historian Fernau suggested the United States should change the motto "in God we trust" to "in GOLD we trust". Would you say so?

If the dollar was still backed by gold, that would make more sense.

No, we are no longer on the gold standard.

It appears where our country has moved but I don't think it is wise as a country to separate from God in any more than we have. I think even small reminders can be the greatest guidance back.

Great questions - always love them and they always ask us to search ourselves and our culture. Thank you

We can't change to in gold we trust because there isn't enough to pay our national debt. I don't like in god we trust either because not everyone believes in god.

I hope not. Besides, what I think about Fernau isn't fit to write here ;)

Btw, he was a staunch socialist.
