November 03, 2011 – Current gold and silver prices are a welcome and encouraging sign that Americans are accepting the gravity of our economic plight. Occupy Wall Street and all of its offspring is an encouraging sign that Americans are becoming willing to do something about it. They are preparing to wage war. Only they have picked the wrong enemy.
Sure the money grubbers on Wall Street have greedily taken advantage of the system, but they could do so only because the system let them. None of this debacle could have happened if the government had not perverted our monetary system.
To get us to where we are today the government had to scheme for decades to subvert the rules our Constitution so carefully carved in stone. The language was crystal clear and the intent left no ambiguity: America’s currency was to be gold and silver coins. Period.
It would take alchemy to do what fiat money has so easily done – bring the economy to its knees. Yet for some inexplicable reason the blame for our woes is cast everywhere but the Fed.
The Fed should not even exist. Whenever a government gets control over the money supply it is only a matter of time before they use it to seize ever greater power. They build their empires on wealth siphoned off the people by the most insidious tax ever conceived – inflation.
It all appears benign at first as easy money and easy credit give the appearance of growing wealth for all. By the time reality sets in the people have pawned their liberties and are left powerless to stop the juggernaut.
Or so they would have you believe. In truth all we have to do is pick up our ball and refuse to play anymore.
That won’t stop the government from running the dollar into the ground, but it won’t matter much to those who hold real money. Only wealth held in fiat money will be destroyed, wealth that never really existed in the first place.
The gold and silver markets hint that the move back to hard money is underway. All we individuals have to do to join in is invest in gold and silver.
