I suspect that there are at least a few members here that have in investment in this precious metal (hello fellow libertarians or libertarianesques). I hold a relatively small amount (several ounces) at an average cost of around $900/oz. I have mainly invested in a small amount of gold as a hedge against apocalyptic economic melt down; you know, pocket money.
Given the disaster that Bam Bam has doubled down on and the bleak outlook, I have considered acquiring more, but the reality is that this government has confiscated gold before (FDR) and essentially screwed a trusting nation of gold owners. I may just be paranoid, but I would not be surprised if history repeated itself. It might be for different reasons, but still.
