Why be a Gold-bug?

"Why be a gold-bug when you know that the government doesn't own much of it anymore?"

Why not?

If the Federal Government doesn't own anymore Gold, then what do they own? Nothing but Tax slaves?

I think there's many reasons to own Gold. One such reason is to take your country back. If the Government doesn't own any Gold, then pretty soon they'll be facing a problem. They'll be forced to recognize that that don't have anything except worthless pieces of paper and computer digits, and everybody else owns the real thing, or at least those that own Gold. Which I hope is a vast majority of Americans. I look at it like, any American that considers themselves to be responsible should own real money. Not corrupt irresponsible Government money that is based upon, nothing. Nothing but computer digits produced by pressing 'Enter' on a keyboard, or a $100 bill that costs 4 cents to make, by bankers. But money that represents something that took some real actual labor to produce. If you don't have some money that represents some real actual labor, then what do you have? Do you have any money that represents responsibility that came from the fruits of labor?

Money is not something just because the Government says it is. It's something that is determined in the marketplace by people, not by the Government.
