What are your thoughts on gold and silver? I see that you do believe in collecting junk silver, so I was just wondering. In my experience, I am observing that US citizens dont really view gold and silver as money as much as Ron Paul and others would like them too.
I have lived in Europe and South America and in other parts of the world it does make sense to collect gold and silver because if you dont have cash and you pull out a piece of silver or gold, their eyes light up as if you had pulled out something of value which it is and most merchants will accept it.
Here, you ask someone if they will accept gold or silver as payment and they act like you are offering them nothing of value, they want cash…money. Telling them you are offering them money in the form of gold and silver is like talking to a wall.
I am just curious to your thoughts on the subject because I am ready to get rid of my gold and silver for food and land instead.
