Safe as gold?


thetruthnews.info

Just how safe is gold should be the question, all we hear these days is buy gold it is the answer to everything. Well I am writing you today to say just beware and remember Franklin D. Roosevelt’s gold confiscation of April 5th 1933.

It appears to me that America is being set up for this once again. You cannot listen to the radio for five minutes without hearing it, buy gold!

Many of the talk radio host or change agents as I call them, along with the gold sales people are hand in hand in only what I believe to be a setup and the question is who will be the victims.

The time to sell is when the world is buying, the time to buy is when the world is selling.

History has proven this correct each time

Gold etf's or any "paper gold" is no safe bet. Physical gold gives you a little more safety but there are still issues when it comes to determining value and using it as currency and carrying and protecting it from others.

Imo there's gonna a gold bubble bursting in the future just like all the other financial bubbles that burst, especially in the "paper gold" market and then all those people who were using it as a safe haven will be in a for a rude awakening.

I collect gold in the form of jewelry, not only do I get to wear it and look good, but it's easier to pawn or trade a simple piece of jewelry than a buillion.

I've read that article before
it's a good one

Growing up in third world country in South America, where there is a black market for just about everything and cambio/cash dealers everywhere gave me a very good idea of how things could possibly be in a financial sitx in the USA. It is not uncommon to trade goods and services for food and other essentials, nor is it uncommon to use jewelry to settle debts. Rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and coins are easier to transport and conceal than gold bars. Oh and while in currently we have standards for gold which determines the value of a piece, in such times, there isn't much difference, you'll more than likely get the same equivalent of monetary, goods, or services for 10K, 14K, 22K or 24K from the dealers.

The people I work with are all buying gold like it's candy. The dumb ones are buying paper certificates for gold. The smarter ones are buying physical gold to hold in there house. I on the other hand decided to invest in less precious metals - lead, copper and brass. Those ones will always have a market for them.

The people who are all crazy for gold are always the ones that have no idea how to stay current. All you need to do is have the ability to stay current with currency. If your country's currency sucks then leave and come to America. We always win. Our stock market guarantees that. Our military backs it up.
