Every Journey has a Beginning
I have a soft spot for the gold and silver community – in particular, for the hard money advocates who strive for honesty and integrity in our financial system. Having begun an investigation into the precious metals and the fiat monetary system over a decade ago, it didn’t take me long to reach a few conclusions. First, I realized the metals were highly undervalued. As such, I shared with friends and family the recommendation to buy physical silver back in the 2004 to 2005 time frame – one of the best risk/reward options I had determined at the time. Notably, a $5,000 investment made then is worth over $30,000 today, and will likely go significantly higher.
But I also quickly realized that there was a dark side to the opportunity…
The ongoing dislocation in the markets and the economy are only the beginning. Money that is backed by empty promises, deficit spending without constraint, soft-money lobbying to control government policy and elitists robbing the Citizens’ Treasury are all abhorrent policies increasingly being perpetrated in the light of day. Tyranny flourishes when good men and women turn a blind eye and do not act to stem its proliferation. This great republic is being attacked from within and from without by the most despicable threat this nation has ever faced.
Hope exists, if we as citizens learn that we must become involved in our governance to return this nation to a constitutional republic; and thereby recreate an environment where all have an opportunity to prosper as was originally intended by the Founding Fathers. We must strive to identify those who work against us in this noble pursuit – and we must each act to stop them. Good men and women banded together and dedicated to spreading freedom and justice are an unstoppable force.
There is a compelling need for you, the reader, to understand what is going on in this country, and indeed the world. But first, why should you even care? Actions formerly relegated to the darkness of sleazy secret deals are increasingly being perpetrated in the light of day, an ominous implication for our future well being. The progression of tyranny goes through definable stages. When corruption becomes apparent to even the casual observer, the cancer is well advanced and death is near.
In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
— Pastor Martin Niemöller, 1959
Working together, we can create a new renaissance of health, wealth and prosperity for all.
