On The De-Socialization of Money Production

Today a Presidential tweet from the very stable economic genius inspired me.

Why hasn’t this notion of creating money to get money been thought of before? I immediately responded to the President with my own helpful suggestion in this regard.

Everyone can be happy with this. Conservatives get a 100% tax cut (we can double defense spending as an added bonus) and liberals get Medicare For All. Best of all, it’s all free! The government can just create money and take what it needs.

However, as I thought this through, I realized that this was but a half measure. Why should the government be the sole creator of money? You know what that’s called? Socialism. Yes, we have socialized money production in this country and I say it is time to be serious about capitalism and open the production of money to all. I stand firmly on this:

Adherence to capitalist principles requires that all of us be free to make however much money we want to buy all the things we want.

Many will choose to deviate from the appearance of current money, which let’s face it, is boring. Who wants the morbid view of dead Presidents every time we want to spend? Whenever I spend a dollar all I can think is “ugh, there’s old wooden teeth again.”

In a money-free America we would all be free to make our cash look however we want. We could put our pictures on the face if wanted.

However, I would not do that. I would use my dog instead. She’s very cute and sweet. She’s a Schnoodle (half Schnauzer half Poodle). Lacking imagination we named her “Oodle.” Thus, we could literally have Oodles of money.
