I'm with you Mish!
I continue to purchase & hold physical gold/silver (cost averaging) & gold mining stocks, but my comments on the internet and voting record are always based upon policy that would be best for the USA & not for my financial holdings. Sadly, neither the politicians nor the average American voter are listening & bad politicians keep getting re-elected. So I continue to buy precious metals & continue to closely follow gold mining stocks, often adding to them if their prices drop but their fundamentals remain good. I fear the financial ruin of the once great USA is at hand. It no longer is if it can be avoided, we've past that point. I'm aware my gold stocks might drop to zero under some Market collapse scenarios.
