Can we get some Facebook/Twitter love?
Ever wonder how Americans can step toward sound money without immediately shuttering the doors at the Federal Reserve? The first step would be to repeal legal tender laws (which grant the Federal Reserve an unconstitutional monopoly over our medium of exchange). You can also remove taxes on "collectables" like gold coins and bullion.
Who do you think won the Republican debate at the Reagan library? Cong. Ron Paul of course hands down!!!!
56,302 Votes to have a 49.4% Overall This is America Speaking!!!
I hope he is wrong, for if his correct then there will be bloodshed...
SORRY DOUBLE POST:
This is an older video from 2009 of how the currency collapse hurt rural Zimbabweans and how they were forced onto a gold standard.
- History of Gold by National Mining Association
Entry examples [Mark Twain notes bracketed]:
- 4000 B.C. Eastern European area begins to use gold to fashion decorative objects. The gold was probably mined in the Transylvanian Alps or the Mount Pangaion area in Thrace.
- 3000 B.C. The Sumer civilization of southern Iraq uses gold to create wide range of jewelry...
Check out this editorial and watch the CNBC video about the gold standard.
"People are rapidly getting ahead of the government on this. We have this sense not only from our own interviews but from the astonishing poll rankings of, say, Congressman Ron Paul, whose entire career has been centered on a campaign for sound money."
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Doug Casey (left).
Introduction: Doug Casey has appeared on hundreds of radio and TV shows, and has been the subject of articles in People, US, Time, Forbes, The Washington Post, and numerous other publications. For nearly three decades, Doug Casey and his team have been correctly predicting major budding trends in the overall economy and commodity markets.
Daily Bell: Welcome, Doug. Let's jump right in. Are you still convinced we are heading into a "Greater Depression"?
“Gold, unlike all other commodities, is a currency,” he said. “And the major thrust in the demand for gold is not for jewelry. It’s not for anything other than an escape from what is perceived to be a fiat money system, paper money, that seems to be deteriorating.”
If you're new to the PM investment game now's the time to smarten up to the scam artists out there, waiting to bait and switch you into buying PM's that are virtually useless in an economic crisis.
There's a "Gold Scam Facebook page" to get you started, with the report included in the page. I highly recommend you follow them and get yourself educated on what to seek and what to avoid in your precious metal purchases.
Enjoy and happy silver and golding!
Just when the DOW had been rallying...
Greece is the Eurozone's economic equivalent of Hitlers bunker in Berlin...the bankers last stand. The international nature of the eurozone is such that if Greece falls then the other "PIIGS" are dust and you'll see the banks implode across Europe.
In other news...gold stocks are doing rather nicely. :)
Wow, this is a pretty big deal. Forbes just predicted that the US will be returning to at least some form of a gold standard after 2012. He's said similar stuff in the past, but it's obvious the movement is picking up more steam.
Here's a link to the article where he says the following:
"We will return to a gold standard. It will be a modernized version of it but in essence, it'll be the basic principle that the dollar will remain constant with gold."
[Along with predicting a return to the gold standard, looks as if Steve Forbes is practicing the "politics of distraction" by tieing these ideas to Rick Perry]
Steve Forbes to Newsmax: Obama, Bernanke Must Go
Wednesday, 31 Aug 2011 06:03 PM
By Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter
Former presidential candidate and Forbes magazine editor Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that President Obama’s planned economic reforms are “the definition of insanity” — repeating failed policies in the hopes that somehow they will become successful.
I haven't heard anyone mention that the record gold price for immediate delivery is now $1913 and has been for about a week.
I can't possibly think of what the significance of 1913 might be...
...wait, that was the year the federal reserve was created.
WOW. Gold must be ALIVE. Clearly it is aware enough to make a point.
Let's hope the next stop is at 1971.
