When did I ever suggest it was an either / or thing. NEVER.

Many here falsely think that if they can just convert to gold and silver they will have it made; that they will have salvation.

Many of those same folks have significant debts that are owned in fiat paper dollars, not gold and silver. So they must have enough cash on hand to pay when paper money is artificially made scarce.

Further there is this... the ability to EAT.

Also, if you don't own a good shotgun, rifle and pistol and enough ammo to put up a defense you might want to sell some of that gold and silver and buy at least all three of these (a good shotgun, rifle and pistol and enough ammo to put up a defense) for each one of your family members so you can defend your gold, silver, garden and/or farm lot.

Many who only hold gold and silver without some diversification (a garden, a farm lot, some cash on hand enough to pay debts for 18 months & firearms/ammo for every situation) will find themselves without the ability to sustain themselves during the initial months & rioting during a real global economic collapse.
