Excellent observation -- "Gold and silver do not increase in value, dollars decrease in value. "
One of the main problems is that gold (as bullion or coins) have disappeared. Swiss banks are refusing to return the metal which had been deposited in their banks, paying off depositors in Euros instead.
A dozen countries that had deposited their gold with the United States, are now demanding their gold back...the U.S. is stalling. The gold deposits no longer exist, but have been scooped up by banksters and the powerful elite. Fort Knox is empty and the gold that had been stored there was spirited away years ago.
