Right now, there is a very heated contest occurring in the precious metals community – a war between the banksters, Wall Street elite, and mainstream news financial pundits over who can make hard money advocates most afraid of owning gold, silver, and mining stocks. These bad boys are working triple overtime to scare precious metals investors that the US dollar will somehow continue to gain in stature and value against other competing investment classes, hard commodities (e.g. precious metals), and foreign currencies.
Those investors whose trading accounts and positions in physical metals have been underwater recently are especially susceptible to the siren song sung by the world’s ruling elite. After all, it is their job to keep the masses heavily invested in their counterfeit, fiat paper currencies while they reap a fortune of trillions from sovereign debt based interest while converting it to physical assets.
With the euro currency in turmoil as a reaction to the European sovereign debt crisis and the attendant threat that it poses for European bank lenders and US investment bank credit default swap issuers who are on the hook to guarantee counter party risk, the US dollar has once again become the temporary life boat darling sent to rescue all the passengers jumping overboard on the euro currency Titanic.
But, how really safe is that US dollar lifeboat? After all, a national currency is only as valid and secure as are its nation’s finances, debt, and banking system. And folks, I’m here to tell you that all of these are in hideous condition here in the good old USA. The Obama Administration is preparing to ask Congress to raise the US borrowing limit by another $1.2 trillion. White House press secretary Jay Carney reported on Tuesday, “I’m confident it will be executed in a matter of days, not weeks.”
Congress will undoubtedly kowtow and comply. With that merciless genuflection, the US national debt will be instantaneously increased by nearly eight percent, from $15.2 to $16.4 trillion. However, it is highly unlikely that this will be enough to pay for the profligate spending of our fearless leaders for the remainder of fiscal 2012. Another trillion or so will undoubtedly be needed by summer (we’ll bet you a bottle of good champagne on this).
Of course, the total debt obligations of the United States, if we take into account the unfunded liability of Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and a litany of other government pensions and entitlements, is actually far in excess of $100 trillion, an amount that can NEVER be repaid. Add to this the terrifying reality that the major “too big to fail investment banks” are carrying derivatives trading risk in the hundreds of trillions of dollars that dwarf their capital reserves by many thousands of times. Bank stocks have felt this and are cratering accordingly. The world’s largest bank, Bank of America, has seen its stock plummet in the last five years from over $50 per share to its current price of $6.87.
Please also include a non-reported but raging inflation of commodities in the US. For example, US grocers have reported that the average cost of a Thanksgiving dinner in 2011 increased by over twenty-three percent from last year. Add this to a country that sees over fifty million people having to use food stamps to survive and you have a recipe for a financial Armageddon.
And you are still worried about the viability of gold and silver? You still think the US dollar junkies are going win this end game?
We at Kristos Trading love competition. So, we have decided to enter the gold/silver versus dollar contest. We are going to carry into this great battle just ONE weapon, what we lovingly call the “Ultimate Fear Chart.” Please take a moment to study this chart carefully.
This is the gold chart for the last fourteen years. It reflects the continued waning confidence in paper currencies, especially the US dollar, and the accumulative trust in precious metals as the ultimate safe haven of wealth. There is always a risk in any investment but does this fourteen year chart make you think that gold is going to fall off the graph against the dollar? We don’t think so either.
Life is always a gamble of some sort. Life always entails some risk. There is a war being fought right now between the Bernie Madoff/Jon Corzine type world criminal class against the common people – the wage earners, the small business owners, the savers, and the lovers of freedom and liberty. Recognize that this IS a war and if you are going to have a chance to win this war, you need to get tougher and stronger. Stop worrying and start fighting. In the gold war against the fiat currency Nazis, you have got to be a soldier. Republican candidate Ron Paul has fought this criminal crew for over thirty years and at last, his message is starting to gain traction. The voices for liberty and freedom, with which precious metals resonate so perfectly, are on the rise. The tide against evil and usurpation is beginning to turn.
The fundamentals for gold and silver have never been stronger. They are the only legitimate money recognized by the US Constitution. Now is NOT the time to fear your investments but, rather, it is the time to jump on board the gold and silver express freedom train. Let’s drive the bankster and paper currencies mercenaries out of our sovereign land. Let’s send the paper dollar bugs home in disgrace where they belong. This is not a time to sell your precious metals, it is the time to buy!

Americans are waking up to the fact that our once free republic is in trouble. They are searching for answers to what seem like unsolvable problems: economic depression, unending war, political corruption, and vanishing liberties. What if there were just one answer – freedom? The American republic was founded upon that principle, yet few suggest that it is the solution to any of our problems, much less all of them. Yet, if freedom is the answer, we first must know what it is. Sadly, most Americans do not. That is why I wrote this book.
I hope you enjoy the Introduction and Chapter One: What is Freedom?, which I am making available for free below. The subsequent chapters discuss how freedom can solve the many challenges we face.
I look forward to fighting with you to restore our liberty. – Tom Mullen
Reviews by Congressman Ron Paul and economist Peter Schiff
“Thomas Mullen is a knowledgeable and passionate libertarian and A Return to Common Sense is a valuable addition to the libertarian literature. Those new to the freedom movement will benefit from Tom’s introduction to both the practical and moral arguments for freedom. Long-time activists will benefit from Tom’s explanation of why strict adherence to principle is vital to the future success of the liberty movement.”
- Representative Ron Paul (TX-14)
Congressman and author of The Revolution: A Manifesto and End the Fed.
“A well written primer on economics, liberty, and government that even avid Austrians will enjoy. If you have been blinded by government and Wall Street propaganda, A Return to Common Sense will help open your eyes. I not only recommend that you add this book to your freedom library, but that you buy a few copies for your friends.”

Introduction: The American Crisis
―THESE are the times that try men‘s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.‖
– Thomas Paine (1776)1
America finds itself in a time of crisis. For several generations we have expressed dissatisfaction with government, be it with the Viet Nam war, the energy and economic crises of the 1970‘s, the scandals of the 1980‘s and 1990‘s, or the present war in Iraq. While there is a case to be made that a little dissatisfaction with the status quo is healthy, it has gone far beyond that now. For anyone remotely in touch with the state of our republic, there is a growing sense of dread that whatever is wrong is getting much worse much faster. They realize that what was once a desire for change has now become a dire need for change. Yet, in as much as the voting public clamors for it, does anyone think for a moment that the majority of people in America actually know what changes are necessary, or even what changes they want?
The United States emerged from the 19th century amidst the most innovative period in the history of mankind. The industrial revolution had wrought miracles that could barely have been imagined 100 years before. After thousands of years of traveling on foot or on the backs of beasts of burden, automobiles carried Americans wherever they wished to go. Steamships freed travel by sea from the vagaries of the four winds, and the telegraph and telephone made communication with distant locations instantaneous, when just a few decades earlier weeks or even months might be required for a single letter to arrive. Electric light replaced the gas lamps of yesteryear, and man‘s most ancient dream was realized by Wilbur and Orville Wright.
