Can someone give me some financial advice?Submitted by iehuvihs on Sun, 02/17/2008 - 17:34
If I have all my bills paid off and about $30 dollars a week to save, should I buy gold, silver or food!
For the last two days I have written a couple articles about the advantages of buying beans. This seems to have irritated some, but it wasn't my intention, my intention was to raise a little debate.
For those of you who are unable to think beyond beans, let me explain! Most people don't have money to invest. Most Americans live paycheck to paycheck, so trying to tell them to buy gold and save it under their mattress is not going to work. Our goal here is to bring people over to Ron Paul. Now if we promote an idea, that is economically viable for the masses, that they should start buying non-perishable food items, such as beans, to protect themselves against inflation, (I am using beans here to encompass all necessary survival items), then we are speaking to them and can draw them to our side. Otherwise Obama is going to take all our good ideas, such as ending the war, and twist them up with his socialist ideals. Can't you see that telling people to buy gold, gives them the impression that we are all a bunch of rich conservative pricks, only interested in pushing up the price of our gold, (I happen to have a $1000 Ron Paul gold piece myself, #194) but telling them to buy food items, beans and anything else that they need, they will relate to this, because there is no risk, and if we are wrong about the price of food going up they still have food! But if the price of food going up doesn't occur, than it is doubtful that the price of gold will go up! So when you go to the rallies, buy a bag of beans, wave it in the air, and tell people to buy food. Those of us who have money to buy gold, will more than likely do so.
