June 13, 2011 – While our government struggles in vain to resurrect its failed experiment in creating Utopia through legislation, it is wise to invest in gold and silver and let nature take its course. Knowing that you are protected against the ongoing folly you will be free to wait out the inevitable and prepare for a brighter future.

It wouldn’t hurt to read – or reread – “The Death of Common Sense: How Law is Suffocating America” by Philip Howard. That gem, first published in 1994, still does an excellent job of portraying the root cause of the predicament we are in, detailing the perversion of the government as envisioned by the Constitution into the unsustainable all-encompassing paternalistic bureaucracy it is today.

Howard’s work is even more pertinent today as it explains why all efforts to revive the economy under the status quo are doomed to failure. Our country was built on individualism, a proud spirit derived from the freedom to make of our lives anything we dare to dream. The Constitution grants us that freedom and protects us from government coercion. Nothing more, nothing less.

The Constitution is elegant in its simplicity and flexible in its intent. It provided the structure by which the greatest nation in history was built. But then we got the bright idea that our government was capable of even greater things if only it had more power.

Perhaps the motive was benign – the intent was indeed to create a perfect society – but the effect was unequivocally disastrous. In its quest of unachievable goals the government stripped its citizens of the very qualities that defined them and brought the country to the brink of financial ruin.

That’s all history and it cannot be undone. It’s time to start over. Real change cannot come from the status quo because the bureaucracy has declawed itself. We will just have to wait until it implodes before we can rebuild.

When the dust finally settles we will need a true revival of the American spirit – and every bit of wealth that we preserve today in gold and silver investments.
