Gold And United States Steepening Slippery Slope Towards Facism

The United States is rather rapidly sliding into a fascist-type state (you can use the "corporatism" euphemism if the truth is too difficult to swallow). The government and their corporate oligarchy are stealing from the people and no longer care if the people have any cake to eat. The process was gradual at first, then accelerated during George Bush Jr's tenure.
Socialism does not describe what has been happening to the United States at all over the past decade. The military industrial complex, Homeland Security, war against a military tactic (i.e. the "War on Terror"), and unusually aggressive unprovoked invasions into tiny third world countries with no real military are the hallmarks of a more aggressive form of developing collectivism than socialism.
Couple this with the raping of the American taxpayer by corporate bail-outs that were unwarranted and unnecessary, government take-overs of corporations and industries, and the unprecedented infiltration of government ranks by corporate whores and felons like Hanky Pank Paulson and widdle Timmy Geithner (paid your taxes yet this year, widdle Timmy?). Add it up and we now essentially meet the traditional definition of a fascist state, which is a union of the government and large corporations that run the country with military/imperialist overtones. Because our aggressive and out-of-control government is broke and desperate, more measures to steal from the public and debase the currency are coming.

The next thing that will come will be the re-call of gold at prices the government sets. If people hide and keep their gold, it will have no value once the government sets the price and make it a criminal offense to own it.
At noon est, gold is at $1156.
I agree...it’s not like they didn’t do this last time. The government is going to crack down on anything it can not control.
The entire article is well worth reading.
“Physical Gold held outside the financial system is a good investment during such times because it can be hidden from the insane clown posse that poses as our leadership and the mistaken masses who continue to believe that they can get something for nothing from their government and fellow citizens. The tipping point is getting very close and one can only hope that there are enough motivated and educated patriots available to stop the process at this point. America is no longer very close to a free capitalist society and to think otherwise is ridiculous in my opinion.”
This is not 1933, and that basic trust we had in the benevolent govt is LONG gone.
Just be clear about the “cake” this Antoinette-referencing statement espouses.
The “cake” isn’t birthday cake, Entemann’s or any kind of bakery cake.
The “cake” referred to is the ashes and burnt crumbs that accumulate in an oven as they fall off baking bread. It’s essentially the burnt toaster crumbs that are at the bottom of your toaster/toaster ovens. Stuff that’s basically now charcoal and hardly in the edible class of food.
Puts a different light on the whole “let them eat cake” comment.
When corruption occurs and the gov plays with people’s moneys via regs and enforcement which disfavors them, the value of the currency is not trusted and the value of the economy is not trusted. Only Baath type party hacks like in Saddam’s Iraq get some form of job security, and then some.
Now with Obama’s new policy of low political commitment to idiotic ideologies that are pro-terrorist - the legacies addictions with it that come, no one will be secure ever, not even party hack. THe whole scheme of hard hearted evil idiots who want to remain in power is hook in jaw for economic demise, political demise and national demise.
They’re all f’n crazy and retarded. THis is what happens when you commit to gays, f@gs and transgenders.
They are right, once you go “black”, you can’t go back.
I think it will move higher with people figuring out the fed is monetizing the debt.
As opposed to precious metals and large investment in the base metals (lead and copper) will complement and protect your investment in precious metals.

...that she never actually uttered.
Good input, thanks.
We’re really getting the worst features of both Marxism and Fascism.
