Two Images Illustrate Why Gold is Owned by Dummies

Over the past decade I've debunked every single myth pumped out by the gold and silver "experts" (i.e. pumpers) explaining why gold and silver are terrible investments, and why neither is any more of a hedge against inflation than rice or sugar. 

You can find this material on this website. 

I've also detailed who the precious metals pumping king pins are. And I have unravelled the tactics they use to form cults. 

Finally, I have emphasized why they spend so much time and money promoting gold and silver. 

Keep in mind that these gold-pumping, fear-mongering broken clocks are dishonest salesmen. They are not analysts. They are not experts. They are frauds. 

The truth you aren't going to hear about gold and silver (other than from me) is the following.

If you really want to make money with gold or silver, the best and most reliable way to do so is to be a gold and silver dealer. 

I've made this claim for several years now. 

After all, why do you think gold and silver kingpins spend so much of their time and money creating content that promotes buying gold and silver?  

Why don't they just buy it themselves and save the money they would have spent creating precious metals propaganda to buy more precious metals? 

Let's not forget these are the same individuals who claim fiat currencies are worthless, right? 

So why do you suppose they are willing to accept your "worthless fiat" currency in exchange for their precious gold and silver?

Come on now.

Don't be a naive fool your entire life. It's time to wake up. 

If you've fallen for the precious metals con artists, you've been had. 

But you shouldn't feel too bad.

After all, it's not your fault you feel for an army of con artists.

So long as you escape the cult you can salvage your future.

But you shouldn't wait too long because no one lives forever. 

To this day, after more than a decade not a single precious metals king pin has accepted my offers to debate (on a neutral platform) their wild conspiracies and false claims about gold, silver, the US dollar, the stock market or anything else.

In fact, they have never even acknowledged my world-leading investment track record.

Do you know why?

Because keeping their cult members from questioning things is vital to keep the them brainwashed.  

Here, I show two charts illustrating why investing in gold long-term is a huge mistake.

You should note that the results are even worse for silver. 

If you doubt me all you have to do is check for yourself.
