Investing in gold and silver is the best way to prevent your wealth from becoming a government handout.

February 18, 2011 – Investing in gold and silver is the best way to prevent your wealth from becoming a government handout.

It’s been said that “if you don’t stand for something then you’ll fall for anything.” Well somewhere along the way we stopped standing for the greatest government ever conceived and fell for the siren song of entitlements. We kept demanding more and more, and now only swift and decisive action to rein in entitlements can repair the damage they have caused.

Americans have been led down the garden path for so long that we now believe that we are owed a better life. Nowhere is that more evident than in the unions. Once a vital protector of workers’ rights, the unions began bullying industry and the government into paying grossly disproportionate wages and providing financially crippling pension and health benefits. It became a greedy game of one-upmanship that brought the auto industry to its knees, sent desperately needed jobs overseas, and pushed our states to the brink of financial collapse. And yet the unions still fiercely contest any concessions.

The outcry by state workers against curtailment of bloated entitlements defies the simple truth that there is just no money to support the programs. For decades the states lied about what they could reasonably offer because it was expedient in the face their workers’ unreasonable expectations of far better benefits than those of workers in the private sector. They were wrong to lie, but get over it.

We need to stop falling for the delusion and stand together for government as it was intended to be: our protector and guarantor of just three entitlements – life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And we owe it to our families to preserve what wealth we have by investing in gold and silver – before the government gives it all away.
