Imagine what would happen if every American were to realize that buying gold and silver was the only way they could protect their future through an ever deepening financial crisis.

June 06, 2011 – Imagine what would happen if every American were to realize that buying gold and silver was the only way they could protect their future through an ever deepening financial crisis. The markets would be drastically altered by the influx of tens of millions of new participants, changing the rules forever.

That day is coming. Lately we have seen a sharp increase in frank, hard-hitting discourse coming not only from the media but from also from the political machine. Alan Simpson, co-chairman of President Barack Obama’s debt commission, says simply that politicians “can’t bring home the bacon anymore, because the pig is dead.” Things must change, not only in Washington but throughout the electorate as well.

The Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan notes “that people like government programs but not government costs,” and that is the crux of the problem. We want our cake and we want to eat it too. Perhaps the “government gives insufficient respect to the ability of people to decide things for themselves … [but] normal humans don’t relish making informed decisions about things they’re not sure of, and that carry big personal implications.”

It remains to be seen how much more negative news must be heaped on our backs before we get over that. A Wall Street Journal News Wire tells us that unemployment is back on the rise and “the jobs market will still take years to heal as the economy remains weak.” Another tells us “New orders, production and export measures all plunged” as U.S. manufacturing growth ground down to its lowest level in nearly two years.

The politicians, meanwhile, remain mired in politicking, spinning away while Washington burns. One brave soul dared to question how we were going to pay for aid to victims of the spate of tornadoes and was soundly thrashed for his rational thinking. How can we expect them to address the really big issue of Medicare? “It is a long time since I’ve seen such transparent demagoguery, such determined dodging,” Ms. Noonan says.

It is transparent, to the point where it is becoming impossible not to see reality through the haze. Americans hate being duped, even though we set ourselves up for it with alarming regularity. We want to believe, but once we finally come to realize that our faith has been misplaced it can never be restored.

Once we acknowledge that the government has failed us, and that the economy has to get much worse before it can get better, people from every walk of life will find that buying gold and silver bullion is the only logical recourse for preserving their future.
