Here's why immediate action is critical: To get the economy through this year's elections, a panicky Congress, Treasury, and the Federal Reserve Bank have implemented a series of emergency actions. In addition to artificially (and temporarily) suppressing the price of gold and silver with tools like the super-secret government mechanism known as the Exchange Stabilization Fund (and tools like the President's "Plunge Protection Team"), they have already printed and pumped over a trillion more inflationary, funny money dollars into the U.S. financial system. When its "simulative" effect wears off, the "you-know-what" is going to hit the fan -- Big Time.
Alan Greenspan just confessed the unfolding liquidity crisis is a "once-in-century event," while former Treasury official (and now columnist) Paul Craig Roberts recently noted "Financially the U.S. is not an independent country... the U.S. is bankrupt."
