The gold market is the model for a new America.
October 24, 2011 – Hope for the free market is alive and well in America today and the gold market is leading the charge. It has been an uphill struggle, but as memories of the good old days begin to fade Americans are awakening to the cold hard truth: those days were but a cruel deception; an illusion designed to keeps us ignorant and happy while Wall Street siphoned off our wealth.
While Obama tells the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that government and business “can and must work together,” an overwhelming majority of Americans “believe that government and big business already work together against the interests of consumers and investors,” says Rasmussen Reports. A mere 13% disagree with that assessment.
In his book “In Search of Self-Governance,” Scott Rasmussen notes that “the gap today between Americans who want to govern themselves and politicians who want to rule over them may be as big as the gap between the colonies and England during the 18th century. And that’s true whether Republicans or Democrats are in charge.”
That’s one thing the Tea Party got right from the start. Thomas Paine could just as easily have writing about events today as he was the oppression of the English throne. Once in power governments will always seek to extend that power far beyond their mandate.
The AP reports that Obama believes the government’s role “is to support the economic foundation by spending public money to improve transportation, education and communications systems.” Yet today, as they did in the early 18th century, Americans perceive the role of government to be the protection of individual liberty and freedom.
The perception that the Fed lies in at the root our problems has been growing in Americans’ minds. Among likely voters just 5% have a very favorable view of the Fed according to a Rasmussen Reports survey. They know there must be a better way, and they are coming to realize that gold must be part of the solution.
You can already hear the rumblings of the mantra that Ron Paul has championed for decades: “End the Fed.” In their frantic search for a golden sword Republican hopefuls have seen the power of taking on that giant with the call for a return to the gold standard.
That’s the sort of answer American voters are so desperately seeking. And through the debate they will come to understand that it is not capitalism but the perversion of capitalism that has brought hardship down upon us.
They will find that the answer can be found in the pure simplicity and impartiality of the gold market.
