What would you trust more for your retirement – Social Security, a traditional portfolio, or an IRA gold investment? Posted by James Randolph on July 05, 2011
Turn to the true independence of gold IRAs.
July 05, 2011 – What would you trust more for your retirement – Social Security, a traditional portfolio, or an IRA gold investment? According to Rasmussen Reports almost 2/3 of American voters say not Social Security, and “only 49% of investors report that their portfolio is worth more than it was a year ago … [while] 41% say the value of their investments is down.”
That would appear to leave gold IRAs – despite the limp market gold is still up some 23% year to year – but gold is still way underheld by investors across the board. There are stirrings about a new American revolution, but just as it was the first time around, indecision is ruling the day. There is a desperate need for leadership like we had back.
A Rasmussen poll on the issue of Social Security and Medicare reveals a glimmer of hope that at least America is waking up to the core issues. In a strapping vote of no confidence in our politicians, 64% said that “any proposed changes in either Social Security or Medicare should be submitted to the American people for a vote before they can become law.” Nearly 2/3 want a say as to when they can retire, and would be willing to either pay more to retire early or pay less and retire later. Those who chose the latter overwhelmingly favor using the tax savings for individual retirement accounts.
The issue is especially important to under-40 voters, the vast majority of whom have little or no faith that the current system will be there for them. It signals they have identified the problem and want to take part in the solution. It is also a promising sign that they understand there must be a fundamental change in the system if anything is ever to get done.
Whether shaping America’s future or just that of our families, it comes down to the same thing: it is up to the individual to take the initiative and rebel against false leadership. Somebody has to get the ball rolling and it is from individual actions that real leaders will emerge.
For your retirement you can choose to continue letting Wall Street lead you down the garden path, or you can break free and turn to the true independence of gold IRAs.
