Do you trust our government, or the Federal Reserve? Is seeing believing? The U.S. gold reserves have not been independently verified or audited for nearly 60 years, since Eisenhower was President. And, every attempt to obtain information about the gold using the Freedom of Information Act has been denied by the Fed. Supposedly, the US has roughly a $150 billion stockpile of gold in the most impregnable vault on earth, Fort Knox. The vault is built out of granite, sealed behind a 22-tonne door, located on a US military base and watched over day and night by army units with tanks, heavy artillery and Apache helicopter gunships. The $150 billion dollar question is whether or not Fort Knox is still a gold depository for America or if it has been “raided” by our trusted leaders? This coincides with a movement being led by Congressman and hopefully 2012 Presidential candidate Ron Paul to determine the same thing. Is there any gold there? And, if so are the gold reserves still the exclusive property of the US, or has the gold been used for more nefarious purposes like managing the price?
“It has been several decades since the gold in Fort Knox was independently audited or properly accounted for,” said Ron Paul, in an e-mail interview with The Times. “The American people deserve to know the truth.”
Mr Paul has so far attracted 21 co-sponsors for a Bill to conduct an independent audit of the Federal Reserve System – including its claims to Fort Knox gold.
Do your country a favor and cast a vote for Ron Paul should he run again, and do yourself a favor and get longer gold before you find out it’s all gone.
