"Ranting" Andy Hoffman joins us for our Monday get together, fresh with news that YPF, a large Argentine Oil Company, partly owned by Spanish Oil Company Respol, was nationalized by the Argentine Government. Sounds like a trade war to us. But this underscores the point that no paper wealth is safe from the clutches of government. It doesn't matter what country's government we are talking about. Eventually, when there's an existential threat to its continued survival, no man's life, liberty, or property is safe.

We're truly talking man versus state. And whether there's a socialist slant to the argument, is really irrelevant. Government is the destroyer of wealth, freedom, and the individual. What we are seeing now is simply a trend that has been forming for many years. The battle of the individual and his primacy over the state has been going on since man realized that some form of government was necessary to help ensure survival. Unfortunately, like all other man-made creations, what starts out as an asset, transforms into a liability. In this instance one that threatens everyone's survival.

Why would that stop them from stealing my gold, just like they did back when we first went off the standard?

Basically buying small amounts at a time with cash and then burying them in the backyard with a small amount purchased on the record as “tribute” to be given up when the feds come calling...

From Argentina nationalizing its largest oil company, the leap is made to every nation nationalizing everything in virtually no time at all. Quite a leap.

Problem is, you then end up with the government calling gold possession a felony, and if you are caught trying to spend some on some food, you end up caught up by the fed informant, and you do hard time -- or just get killed outright.

See, there's no real defense against this sort of thing. If it comes down to such a government, the key is to do as much damage as you can while going out. Enough people do that, and the gov't system collapses.

There is no safe haven against tyranny. They can take your gold as easily as anything else.

Better off forgoing Gold and investing in Lead and Brass and some steel to use it with...

The entire argument here is from the perspective of a slave. We must convert our wealth to gold and hide it so the government doesn’t take it from us? Well, how about this: when we get to the point where government is simply trying to take things from us, how about we rid ourselves of that government? That’s the American way.
