Welcome To The U.S.S.A.

December 25, 2009 Gold Investment, Politics 6 Comments

Welcome to the U.S.S.A., now shut up and get in line!

For those of you that have figured out a way to keep the sand out of your ears when you stick your head amongst the grains, I suggest that you skip this post and go somewhere that the truth has not dared to show its face.  The rest of you, please bear with me while I vent my frustration over the internal “coup” that has started cannibalizing the greatest nation on earth with hors d’oeuvres sized bites, and moved on to decapitation as the “ultimate solution”.

The Senate vote that took place on Christmas Eve, while the nation was busy preparing for Christmas Day, should tell you all that you need to know about what lying looters the democrat party has become.  The group that was swept into power by the “useful idiots” under the banner of  “change” and “open, accountable  government” have brought nothing but corruption and a total disregard for the rule of law in its first year in power.

There is not enough space here to mention all the bribes that were paid to Senators to get their votes for this bill which is unconstitutional in many of its mandates.  What we have witnessed with this vote is the foundation for the birth of Marxian Socialism that is, in today’s politically correct speak, labeled the “progressive  movement”.  Not one democrat Senator demonstrated the courage to stand up to the Chicago mob and say that he, or she, would not vote for this unconstitutional bill, because their pockets were so swelled with bribes that they could not stand (literally) for the Constitution and the American people.

In Europe, the ideological bankruptcy of socialism is being displayed by the impending  insolvencies of Greece, Latvia, Spain, Ireland, the United Kingdom, to mention just the countries in the worst financial shape of that socialist haven known as Europe.  Why is America headed down this morally bankrupt road?

Two quotes come to mind that summarize exactly where we are at right now.  The first is from British author and advocate for individual rights, Cecil Palmer: Socialism is workable only in heaven where it isn’t needed, and in hell where they’ve got it. The second was penned by famed economist Frederic Bastiat, about 150 years ago about the nascent modern socialism then emerging.  The State is that great fiction by which everyone tries to live at the expense of everyone else.

UnitedSocialistStatesOfAmericaFlag Welcome To The U.S.S.A.

The slow maturation of the “nanny state” is the key element that produced the road upon which our course is soon to be set.  The government does not create consumable goods and services, and as such, it is an economic burden to the productive sector of the economy.  The government demonizes capitalism in order to direct the “useful idiots” from the true cause of the problem which is it’s own policies.  Just look up Barney Frank and Chris Dodd’s role in the  Fannie May and Freddie Mac implosions.  Their mandates forced the banks to loan to people who didn’t  qualify, which was the cause of the housing “crisis”.

Since the Obama administration took power we have have heard about one crisis after another.  It is odd how a shift in ideology can change a swan into a pig.  Nobel Laureate (before the award was diminished by becoming an award for ideology rather than achievement)  Friedrich von Hayek spelled it out quite clearly: “Emergencies have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have eroded.”

It is time that we restore our country to what is used to be, the leading capitalist country in the world where free-markets, limited government and the unconditional rule of law were the order of the day.  Perhaps Winston Churchill captured it best, The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Unfortunately we are now left with Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, behind closed doors, figuring out how to limit our freedom in ways that won’t be discovered until 2013.  After that we can only hope that the internal demons of the democratic party will eat their own on the final vote.  Perhaps President Obama’s mentor, Rev. Wright, was correct, “America’s chickens are coming home to roost!”

Till next time, Merry Christmas, good luck and good trading!

    Great Post. You have a very engaging and thougtht provoking writing style. Your quotes were used very effectively to slice through the BS and reveal the truth with just the right touch of humor. I love the term useful idiots, funny, but allllll toooooo truuuuue. I particularly liked the Churchill quote.
    Keep up the great work and I’ll keep buying gold and silver since no one’s bribing me.

    Thanks for the nice comment. It is great to see that there are still people out there that understand what is going on. Keep on buying gold and silver on the dips and you will be in great shape for anything that comes our way.

    I personally think NOW IS THE TIME TO BE SELLING GOLD. With prices as high as they are, it’s the time to cash in! When I decided to sell my gold, I did lots of homework to find the right company since there are too many guys out there now trying to take your jewelry and pay you pennies on the dollar. So when I found the Silver And Gold Exchange I knew I’d found the right company. They PAY THE MOST and are very nice to deal with. And I trust their BBB affiliation and rating. Check them out at http://SilverAndGoldExchange.com

    Thanks for the comment. I do not consider gold or silver jewelry as an investment that I would trade as the price of gold or silver goes up or down.

    I am more into gold and silver bullion or coins, which I believe should not be traded for profit, but rather held as insurance protection in the event of a major currency collapse. I agree with you that there are times to sell gold or silver, but this is not one of them! This is a minor correction in the ongoing gold bull run. If you were inclined to sell it should have been two weeks ago while gold was rising. Sell into strength and buy weakness. It is not really that complicated.

    I hope you did well in your sale and anyone who is of a like mind should check your site out before making their decision.

    Good luck and good trading!

    Great article. Well written by a guy who is paying attention to the world in which he lives. Clear perception, intelligent commentary and a plan for the future. Would that the biased media could see beyond their own agendas and “we the people” didn’t have to search the internet for truth and clarity. Keep up the fine work!

    Thank you for your kind comment. It is nice to see that there are people out there that see the big picture. You are the reason I take the time to write this blog. I wish you and all of America the best as we navigate this minefield and hopefully get to the other side unscathed!

    Since you liked this post, I would suggest that you look at today’s post “Government Policy Underpins Gold”.

    Thanks again, and…

    Good luck and good trading!
