How dependent are you on your government?
How dependent are you on big business for your health, your food, your home and your major utilities?
The more dependent you are, the more vulnerable you are.
And that’s just how the government and big business like it. They want you to be dependent on them. Because when you are dependent, you are powerless.
In fact, if the government tells you to jump…or otherwise you won’t be able to afford gas any more…you’ll have to jump. If they tell you to jump higher…or food prices will double…you’ll have to jump higher. If they tell you to jump and clap your hands…or interest rates will double…you will do as you are told.
You’ll have no choice, because you are dependent, not independent.
This is why you should own physical gold. It’s the first step on the road to claiming your independence.
Owning gold means you don’t have to jump if your paycheck gets cut, or interest rates rise, or food prices go up. You’ll have a reserve, a buffer. And gold is the most dependable reserve of wealth, because it holds its value outside of the banking system. It is yours. That’s why nations around the world have their own gold reserves. (And why they are buying more gold than ever, right now.)
With enough gold, you can buy yourself out of the system, if and when you need to. You can get out of the suburbs, get out of the city, and find a place where you can live simply, use candles for lighting, burn wood for heat and grow your own food.
Yes, that may sound extreme. But wouldn’t you like the choice to be in control if you had to?
How about spending less money on all that stuff you don’t need, and using that cash to buy gold?
When you own gold, you begin to give yourself some options. Own enough and you’ll be independent and outside of the control of big government and big business.
