Every American Should Own Physical Gold & Silver

DecliningDollarGold & Silver

At this point (Spring 2015) in our constantly changing world of global economic and financial uncertainty, every American should own physical gold and silver. Period. Everyone. No matter how much or how little you earn or have invested.

Sadly, the average person understands very little about gold and silver. But the fundamental logic for every American to own physical gold now is enduring and inescapable.

Do You Have insurance?

It’s a fair bet that you have your home, car and health insured. Perhaps you even have life insurance. But do you have your wealth insured through ownership of physical gold and silver? Owning gold and silver is the ultimate hedge against inflation, deflation and currency depreciation, and it is a great tool for transferring wealth to your children and grand-children.

How Diversified Is Your Portfolio?DiversifiedPortfolio

Your portfolio is not properly diversified if it does not include physical gold & silver amounting to – at the very least – 5% of your total net worth. A much more prudent allocation would be 15%.

A Declining Dollar

The purchasing power of the U.S. Dollar has declined over 95% since The Federal Reserve was created in 1913. The cumulative rate of dollar inflation over the last 100 years is 2,238%, according to The Fed, which has been fudging annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) statistics since the early 1980s. ShadowStats estimates that the cumulative rate of dollar inflation since 1915 is actually over 9,000%. So what cost $1 in 1915, costs over $90 today!

Do You Trust Your Government?

GlobalBombA 12/18/13 Gallup Poll revealed that 72% of Americans think Big Government is the biggest threat to the U.S. in the future. This is the same ever-expanding Big Government that prints money like a Third World despot, reads your e-mails, eavesdrops on your cell phone conversations, rides roughshod over The Constitution, and uses government institutions like the IRS (targeting Tea Party organizations) and Justice Department (Operation Choke Point) to punish individuals and entities it simply does not like. Although Americans are becoming increasingly powerless to stop this juggernaut of Orwellian oppression, gold and silver empower the disenfranchised.

You Must Own Gold & Silver

With gold & silver, you never lose your investment. Add to your precious metal holdings over time, and be certain that you are doing what you can to preserve your wealth and to secure your family’s future in an uncertain world.


Gold & Silver, How Much Should You Own?

Why Gold & Silver?

Gold and silver are inherently valuable precious metals, readily convertible money that has withstood the test of time (5,000 years), and is traded worldwide. With gold and silver, unlike almost any other investment, you never suffer loss of principal.

Protect Purchasing Power

Owning physical gold and silver is the best way to protect your wealth from a declining dollar which has lost over 95% of its purchasing power since 1913. Since 1930, the price of gasoline has increased 3,600% in dollar terms, but an ounce of silver buys the same amount of gasoline today as it did then!

Essential Portfolio Insurance

Owning physical gold and silver is essential portfolio insurance in a world of unpredictable and volatile geopolitical events and economic uncertainty. Simply put, you owe it to yourself and to your family.

Is It An Investment?

Yes. Over the past decade, a typical diversified portfolio without gold would have returned 6.8% on an annualized basis. The same portfolio with 10% in gold (instead of cash) would have returned 8.9%.

Why Now?

The current prices for gold and silver are below the real cost of mining and refining! Buy now at/near rock-bottom prices, before prices rise….

How Much Should I buy?

Buy physical gold and silver, amounting to 5% to 10% (some experts say more) of your total net worth.

For example:

Now Is The Time To Buy

Now Is The Time To Buy

With a total net worth of $100,000, buy $5,000 to $10,000-worth (or more) physical gold & silver.

With a total net worth of $500,000, buy $25,000 to $50,000-worth (or more) physical gold & silver.

With a total net worth of $1,000,000, buy $50,000 to $100,000-worth (or more) physical gold & silver.

With a total net worth of $5,000,000, buy $250,000 to $500,000-worth (or more) physical gold & silver.

…. you get the idea.

What Proportion Of Gold To Silver?

The earth’s crust contains approximately 20 times more silver than gold. The gold-silver ratio represents the number of silver ounces it takes to buy an ounce of gold.

Act Now!

For 2,000 years, the ratio ranged from 10 to 17. But over the last decade, it has ranged between 33 and 84, and currently stands at around 70. A good place to start is 40; buy 40 ounces of silver for every ounce of gold you buy.

Own Physical Gold


John Hathaway of Tocqueville Asset Management, speaking about physical gold:

“Gold is the one tangible asset that is both truly liquid and that can most reliably provide buying power during times of crisis. For preservation of large-scale wealth over generations, there is no substitute.


Gold does what expensive homes, crates of Picassos, safe-deposit boxes packed with Rolexes, or a garage full of Aston Martin DB7’s cannot do…. morph quickly and easily into liquid buying power, with no haircut, when it matters the most.

Time and again throughout history, usually over a weekend, paper claims have been rendered non-functional, useless or worthless. Banks may shut down, securities exchanges may stop trading, wire-transfers may be blocked, arrangements may be suspended, or laws may change.”

Noah’s Gold Ark

Noah's Gold ArkWhy Noah’s Gold Ark? Noah saved man and animal-kind from the flood, but he should also have brought gold and silver along, to use as money and to conserve as an enduring store of wealth.


Death is a certainty, but we try to minimize the impact by living each day to the fullest. So it is with the financial flood waters rising fast. We must be like Noah and prepare for that eventuality by securing our wealth the best way we can; and that means owning physical 100% pure gold and silver, my friend.


While the people scurry about their mud-brick homes in the rain, repairing holes in the thatched roof against the coming storm, Noah is putting the finishing touches to his sturdy Ark, a stoutly built vessel that will stay dry and secure above the coming maelstrom of churning waves. With The Ark completed, Noah begins stacking gold and silver bars in the hold, two by two. Soon, Noah’s Gold Ark is safely afloat while everybody else drowns in the rising waters.


Everyone knows the clichéd definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results. However, the current insanity – printing trillions of dollars, running up impossible entitlement debts, a tax-and-spend policy that will cripple America – is insanely stupid. ‘Stupid’ because the government pursues strategies that have never worked before and will certainly fail again. Consider these absolute truths:

Ark Flood Gold-       No nation with a fiat currency has ever maintained the value of its money. EVERY fiat currency, since the Romans first began the practice in the first century, ended in devaluation and eventual collapse – collapse of the currency and of the economy.

–       When fiat currencies fail, throughout history people always turn to gold and silver: Noah’s Gold Ark.

–       With near-zero interest rates and a devaluing dollar, the longer you hold dollars, the less they are worth (today worth 4% of their value 100 years ago) .

–       The bank owns the money you have in your account, in return for which you can claim a credit against the bank’s assets. You may not know this, but it is terrifyingly true. Check it out.

–       No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity.

–       No government has ever continually spent more than it received in revenue, without eventually having to cut back severely on spending and also invoke austerity measures.

–       No nation on earth has a government-run health care program that works. Not one. They are all inefficient, over budget, plagued with widespread and blatant fraud, intrusive of patient rights and privacy, and none of them put the health of the patient first.

–       In fact, can you name a U.S. government program of any kind that does work?

TRUTH TRUMPS INSANITYsafe secure gold silver

Truth versus insanity. When the truth is staring you in the face, with a 2,000 year history of failed fiat currencies to prove it, how much longer are you going to keep stuffing that toilet-paper money under your mattress (or worse, in a bank account)? When the financial flood waters swirl around your ankles, don’t you want to be with Noah – and your own gold and silver – safe and secure on Noah’s Gold Ark?

Only Americans who own physical gold and silver will have their wealth protected…… are YOU already counted in this select group?

Billions Of Your Dollars

Savings…. stolen from you, by your government. How is that, exactly? If Americans really understood the vast confidence trick that their government has unleashed on them via the financial system, there would be blood in the streets over the government theft of billions of our savings dollars.


First, you need to understand how interest rates are manipulated. In the U.S., the authority for interest rate decisions is divided between the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), and rates are reported by the Federal Reserve. From 1971 until 2013, the central bank benchmark interest rate (CBBIR) in the U.S. averaged 6.14%, reaching an all-time high of 20.00% in May 1981 and a record low of 0.25% in December 2008 – where it has pretty much stayed ever since.

The CBBIR is also the overnight rate at which central banks make loans to the commercial banks under their jurisdiction. By adjusting the CBBIR, the central bank is able to impact the interest rates of commercial banks, the nation’s inflation rate and also the dollar exchange rate. Reducing the interest rate usually correlates with an increase in business activity, a rise in the inflation rate and a weakening of the dollar. Increasing the interest rate usually correlates with a decline in business activity, a decline in the inflation rate and a strengthening of the dollar.


As you know, Baby Boomers refers to those born between 1946 and 1964, aged from 49 to 67 in 2013 and numbering around 72 million survivors today. This is the age group for whom retirement savings are of paramount importance. Yet the bank interest rate on dollar savings accounts – which for many years averaged 6.14% – has languished around 0.25% for the last five years.

Imagine you are a Baby Boomer in December 2008 with $250,000 in savings in the bank, facing retirement in December 2013. Look at the following two intriguing examples.

Example A: After 5 years of bank interest at 0.25% (artificially held down to this rate by your government), your $250,000 savings now amounts to $253,141 in December 2013 (plus $3,141).

Example B: After 5 years of bank interest at 6.14% (approximately what the rate should have been), your $250,000 savings now amounts to $336,772 in December 2013 (plus $86,772).


Makes you pretty mad, right? But wait, it gets worse. The dollar has lost approximately 98% of its value in the 100 years since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913, or around 1% loss-of-value each year. The official inflation rate is notoriously underestimated, but real consumer inflation has actually been averaging over 5% each year. But for simplicity’s sake, let’s combine these two factors into a rounded-off inflation rate of 5% each year.

Example A: 5 years of 0.25% interest from your savings bank, combined with 5 years of 5% inflation, reduces the ‘spending power’ of your original $250,000 savings in 2008 to an equivalent of $195,875 in 2013.

Example B: 5 years of 6.14% interest from your savings bank (what you should have been earning), combined with 5 years of 5% inflation, increases the ‘spending power’ of your original $250,000 savings in 2008 to an equivalent of only $260,587 in 2013. Pitiful, even if you had got the 6.14% bank interest you really deserved.

Meanwhile, government printing presses are rolling out $85 billion a month in new currency, further weakening the U.S. Dollar.


The foregoing examples make it pretty clear that paper money – dollars – are neither safe nor prudent for savings. Gold and silver are the hard currencies of choice, and now is the time to transfer increasingly worthless dollar assets into real wealth – gold and silver – and to store them safely outside the banking system.

If you are still not convinced, ponder this. If you had converted your $250,000 savings into gold in December 2008 at $870 perGold Silver ounce (287.36 ounces), it would be worth $1,400 per ounce  in December 2013 (a conservative estimate, we believe), or $402,299. But regardless of the 2013 dollar value of your gold, you would still own 287.36 ounces of valuable gold!

Government Abuse

Government abuse. It is odd that the American people are not heartsick, outraged and taking to the streets over unrestrained government and the recent catalog of gross abuses of Federal power and control. Or at least it is odd until you remember two things:

1) The liberal media avoids tackling anything that might disparage Obama, two bumps in the road being the NSA Prism spying scandal followed by the revelation that the Justice Department had secretly combed through the phone records of reporters and editors at The Associated Press.

2) Many Americans just do not care anymore, and are frankly tired of the squabbling between Big Government Democrats and Big Government Republicans.


This is tragic, because history will show that the two things that actually threatened post- WWII America were not nuclear war and terrorism, but the Federal government and creeping apathy; two things that are destroying the America we know and love. Government is the enemy, not terrorists. Historically, governments have slaughtered and imprisoned millions of people, while terrorists have killed a few hundred thousand.


This spate of egregious government scandals does have a common thread.

–       The operations are carried out in secret.

–       When exposed, they are hotly denied by the accused and largely ignored by the mainstream media.

–       No one confesses, apologizes or is ever held accountable.

–       The Administration and mainstream media eagerly welcome the next ‘news distraction’.

–       In short, nothing changes.


During this century, Americans have taken a stand against communism (the Soviet Union during the Cold War, the Korean and Vietnam wars), fascism (Franco’s Spain, Mussolini’s Italy, Hitler’s Germany and Saddam Hussein’s Iraq), imperialism (Hirohito’s Japan) and Islamic fundamentalism (Afghanistan, Iran, Al Qaeda). Yet what we have to fear most is statism at home, since our government already believes it should control individual liberty (gun control), social policy (Obamacare) and economic policy (government bailouts of corporations, loans to uneconomic ‘green’ corporations, and now perhaps even bankrupt cities as well).


As Cato Institute President John Allison recently noted, “The tragedy is that we cannot trust our own government….. as all of the abuses and intentionally misleading statements clearly demonstrate. If we could, the IRS abuses would not have taken place and there might be an argument for NSA surveillance for terrorists. Power corrupts. I believe it is reasonable to draw a connection between these abuses of power and the efforts to take away 2nd Amendment rights. The last check against the tyrannical state is the right to bear arms. When gun rights go, other freedoms will ultimately follow.”


If you still think you trust your government, remember that these are the same people who dictate monetary policy and who are printing $85 billion dollars a month out of thin air, constantly devaluing our currency and hiding from us the fact that real interest rates are in the negative and that the real consumer inflation rate is approaching 9% per year.


Now do you understand why discerning Americans are taking advantage of a temporary dip in prices to buy up and store physical gold and silver bullion now, for the storm ahead?
