The Great G. Gordon Liddy Gold Paradox!!!
There is a person named G. Gordon Liddy who has commercials on television for Rosland Capital, about how really smart people should invest in GOLD. According to him, PAPER money like dollars, will just not have much value and if you are smart and want to be safe, you will buy some GOLD!!! (Which has never been worth nothing!)
There is another lady on television who works for some place called Monex, who has a commercial where she is sitting there with $50,000 worth of GOLD and $50,000 worth of PAPER DOLLARS and asks you which you would rather have in five years???
But here is the paradox. What is it they are both wanting to get from you in order to give you their wonderful GOLD??? They are wanting your PAPER DOLLAR bills!!! Yes, in the very commercials where they are telling you how WORTHLESS PAPER DOLLARS are and how wonderful GOLD is, they want you to send them your PAPER DOLLARS and they will send you their wonderful GOLD.
Sooo, does this make any sense??? Because if I believed that GOLD was great, and PAPER DOLLARS sucked, I would just sell enough GOLD to pay for food and utilities and keep the rest. I sure wouldn’t make it my business to go swapping out this wonderful GOLD I had, for this lousy PAPER DOLLARS.
Sooo, the next time you see G. Gordon Liddy trying to get your PAPER DOLLARS, just ask yourself what is going on. And ask yourself what it is the Monex people would rather have five from years from now — it is your PAPER DOLLARS!!!
