Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

I’ve been in the gold and silver business for over 40 years. I started Investment Rarities in 1973. I can’t think of another precious metals company that’s been around this long.  Hundreds of companies have come and gone.  There’s a built-in formula for failure in most coin dealers’ operations. We’ve avoided their mistakes and in spite of a few lean years we have prospered.

I state all this, not to brag, but to make the case that we have the experience necessary to give good advice.  Furthermore, if you’ve read my novel, Full Faith and Credit, you know how our economic forecasts have been mostly correct. Consequently, you should listen to what we say.

In 2001, we established a long-term relationship with Theodore Butler.  He is the world’s ranking silver expert.  He understands the gold and silver market like no other. His predictions, discoveries and insights into how silver is traded validate our high opinion of his work.  You should also listen to what he tells you.

At one time our clients were up over $3 billion. We expect that number to be surpassed in the not-too-distant future. Mr. Butler expects a dramatic price rise in silver that could start at any time.  He calls it the capital gain opportunity of a lifetime.  He believes you will never have a chance to make more money than you will with silver today.

Neither one of us is a Willie-off-the-pickle-boat.  We know what we’re doing and we are careful about what we write and say.  We want you to make a lot of money and your interests come before ours.   We believe that’s the formula for you and for us to hit it out of the park.
