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.
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?
A 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.
