Paul describes current financial implications, and also how cinnamon tastes best in a warm glass of cocoa.

After watching four seasons of Top Chef on Hulu, Ron Paul announced to the U.S. House of Representitives his proposal of the ‘cinnamon’  standard for the currency of the United States.

“With our current economic crisis, we cannot trust the Federal Reserve any longer. There is no where in our constitution that it says that the government can print and control the currency of the United States,” said Paul, “And after watching Dale Levitski’s come from behind victory with his Cinnamon & Walnut Pie, it’s clear to see that we need to take on the cinnamon standard for a delicious jump into the next decade.”

When asked about his gold-standard proposals Paul responded, “Gold is a thing of the past. It’s a good idea, but too impractical. What, are you seriously going to carry a brick of gold in your pocket everytime you want to buy something? That’s insane. Cinammon sticks fit much easier into a wallet or purse, and they taste great.”

Paul cited that cinnamon was the first spice to be traded between Asia and Europe, as well as being a reliable import for the Egyptians. Paul then went on for hours about who will win the current season of Top Chef and how he just cant get the right amount of rosemary for his broiled lamb.

“Have you ever sprinkled paper money on a pastry? That’s supposed to be a rhectorical question, but I actually have. It tastes horrible. Cinnamon is king,” said Paul.

Paul then passed around dishes of vanilla and cinnamon pudding to all 435 members of the House of Representatives. After a happy response, Paul then said, “See, the proof is in the pudding.” This was followed by a standing ovation.

The bill has now been moved to top of the House’s agenda, just ahead of healthcare, social security, cancer research and education.

In closing, Paul whispered, “And I don’t want to sound un-American, but Chef Levitski’s cinnamon French toast is to die for.”

  1. I think slivers of trees (paper) with nice little ornamental designs on them possessing no intrinsic value is working out just great! Why, we can create as much wealth as we want by creating as many of these little slivers of trees as we like out of thin air. Money with no intrisic value is just super! We’re all going to be rich!(end sarcasm)

  3. I know it’s just a joke (based on ignorance) but in actuality a cinnamon stick actually represents more value then the debt-backed “money” the government forces all to use today. Most people choose to trade value for value. Money is just a means to those ends. The question becomes how stable\secure is that temporary medium and who should decide what medium should be used? In a free society currencies would compete. Some would use gold-backed debit cards or paper certificates redeemable in silveras money (its actually the only money that is legal under America’s rule of law). When American’s finally come to grips with what their federal reserve notes represent (debt and inflationary wealth confiscation) they will be wishing their currency was backed a real tangible asset…even cinnamon 🙂

  4. Ron Paul and every creditible monetary revisionist wants the government to print and control the money supply, that’s one of the things it *should* do.

    And as the poster above stated, any tangible good could be used as a basis – as they can’t be created arbitrarily out of thin air on the whim of those who hold the right to create it (gained through whatever means).

    Reference the cinnamon as a modern form of split tally sticks – a much more stable system of monetary generation than fractional reserve, and your really onto something.

    • Very interesting but not all that surprising. Dr. Paul is the real deal! Hopefully everybody else in this messed up country of ours is paying attention.

  6. Did this really happen, or is the whole article a gag?

    I mean, if people are already making up goofy stuff to make Dr. Paul look silly, they must really be running scared!

    Vote Ron Paul, even if you have to write him in!

  7. Cinnamon sticks, tulip bulbs, tobacco stalks or even big ass rocks stuck in the sand….anything other than ink on 100% rag.

  8. I’d be ok with the paper dollar if the government was not permitted to print additional dollars without disposal of turned in, junky dollars.
