Gold And Silver – Are You A Lion Or A Gazelle? You Had Better Know!

Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up knowing it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed and eaten. Every morning a lion wakes up knowing it must outrun the slowest Gazelle, or it will starve to death. It does not matter if you are a lion or a Gazelle…when the sun comes up each morning, you’d better be running. African Proverb
We see the lions as issuers of fiat, Gazelles as owners of gold, and if you are uncertain as to which you are, the issuers of fiat will financially eat you alive. Cyprus was an overt wake up call. Many people in the U S think it will not happen to them. It already has. Each morning, when the sun comes up, you must decide if you want fiat or specie. One will slow down your ability to “run,” the other will give you the ability to “outrun.”
In the “Battle For Investment Survival,” you have a choice to make, and your ability to survive depends on it. As Gerald Loeb recommended, “Put all you eggs in one basket, and watch that basket very carefully.”
Switching analogies, central bankers, and specifically the privately owned corporation, aka the Federal Reserve, are like some cuckoo birds, the ones that deposit their eggs in another specie’s nest. When the eggs hatch, the baby cuckoo bird will push out the other specie’s newly born birds to their death, and the unsuspecting parents raise the cuckoo as its own.
At the time when the privately held Federal Reserve Bank [unconstitutionally] took control of the US money supply in 1913, currency was specie-backed by gold and silver. The egg had hatched. Over the ensuing decades, the Federal Reserve removed the gold backing behind United States Treasury Notes and had them destroyed. A few decades later, all silver-backed certificates were finally removed, no longer “honored.” [It is difficult to use the word "honor" in federal world of dishonor.]
The unsuspecting public, like the unsuspecting new bird parents, came to accept fiat Federal Reserve Notes, [FRNs], as their own. The fiat-issue functioned the same as the gold and silver specie-backed United States Treasury Notes, buying and selling goods and services, etc, so the bait-and-switch was successful. [This is a classic example of how the NWO works, slowly over time, seemingly unperceptive, while almost no one pays close attention.]
Unlike Cyprus, the green light for world central bankers to loot the savings of bank depositors, the Federal Reserve central bankers have been looting the United States via inflation since its takeover in 1913. The [lack of] “value” of a FRN is about 3 cents of what a 1913 FRN was. [See US Purchasing Power Measured By Gold chart, click on http://bit.ly/11M9uj4, first chart]. Inflation has always been recognized as the most insidious and stealth means of stealing every form of a nation’s wealth.
