Asset and Wealth Protection
Personal Liberty focuses on conservative Americans who understand the importance of independent thought in the quest to grow and protect their financial assets, and are seeking to achieve financial freedom.
I’m reading with alarm about the EU’s actions in Cyprus. Can you foresee a time when the government tries to take our savings or close the banks?
When is a guarantee no guarantee? When you are doing business with liars and thieves — i.e., the government and banksters. Cypriots learned this the hard way over the weekend when the EU elites froze their bank accounts and announced plans to plunder savers’ accounts by up to 13 percent.
A new analysis reveals average taxes for wealthy families are higher now than at any time since the Congressional Budget Office began crunching the numbers in 1979. Families from middle and low-income brackets are paying less in Federal taxes than in the past.
If the shaky state of the current central banking systems throughout the world wasn’t already obvious, the fact that virtual currencies are worrying central bankers is further highlighting the weakness of most modern financial systems.
I called National Bullion and Currency Depository on Jan 11th to order some of the $5 gold eagles. Jason White took my order. He informed me that they were sold out but I could get the $10 gold eagle for the same price per oz which was $840 for each of the $10 coins. I then put an order in for 6 of the 1/2 oz coins for a total of $5040 + $20.00 S & H. I received my order today, but they must have gotten something screwed up.
What I received was:
||2004 $10 gold eagle proof 70
||2006 $25 gold eagle MS 70
||$25 gold eagle – bullion

I don’t buy numismatic coins but even if I did, their prices are outrageous. I could buy a 2006 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle MS-70 PCGS (First Strike) from APEMX for $999.90. I will call Jason tomorrow to cancel the order. I expect them to arrange to have Fed Ex, UPS or USPS pick this order up from my house and give me full credit of the $4981.00. I would be willing to keep the two, 1/2 oz bullion coins for $840 each and pay the $20.00 S&H. Or what would you suggest? I definitely don’t want the numismatic coins.
More Americans are becoming wise to the debasement of the U.S. dollar and destruction of the economy by the ongoing quantitative easing to infinity money printing and massive deficit spending, as evidenced by the surge in the sale of physical gold and silver by the U.S. Mint in recent weeks.
What gold coins should I buy to make sure I’m not getting ripped off?
Loosely attributed to politically outspoken rock legend Frank Zappa is the notion that politics is the entertainment wing of the military industrial complex. But unless you enjoy economic drama (or tragedy), the playbill for 2013 is already looking pretty lousy.
Most economic experts agree on three things: 1) Lawmakers are highly unlikely to reach an agreement before Jan. 1, when deep automatic spending cuts and crippling tax increases will automatically occur. 2) When they do implement a fiscal cliff plan, it will probably be little more than a quick-fix to avert only the harshest consequences of their failure avert the cliff. 3) Talks over the fiscal cliff have become more about political grandstanding and less about protecting Americans’ bottom lines.
I am at a financial CROSSROAD and am going “nuts” trying to figure out what the best way to go may be.
I have a second mortgage on my home of approx. $44,000 and (at the same time) I have a total of about $43,000 (spread across 3 different investments: Merrill Edge, Charles Schwab, and an IRA at Chase Morgan). Do I cash everything in and pay the second mortgage, …… or just leave everything where it is?
Another idea I had was to purchase any type of 2-bdrm sound structure with a little bit of land (no matter how little)… “down South”… maybe in North Carolina or Tennessee. The prices down there seem to be EXTREMELY low these days. Why? In case the country SPLITS, I see the South becoming its own country… again! And… it looks like most of the conservatives may just be in the South. I don’t like the heat down there, but I definitely do not want to end being surrounded by communist liberals….no matter how mild the weather may be.
I REALLY hope I won’t get “….sorry, but I cannot give you financial advise”… back. I’m just an old woman, by myself trying desperately to get somewhat ready for the upcoming disaster (financial, social, and every other way one can think of). One would have to be blind not to see (and feel) that something terrible is coming.
I TRULY hope you can give me some direction on this. The above is ALL I have in the world and don’t want to do the wrong thing, especially “now”.
