Sounds right to me. Our dollar is worth less, hence it takes more of them to purchase items such as guns. As an example, in November of 2008 during the presidential election, gold was going for $800.00 per ounce in US dollars. Silver was going for about $10.00 an ounce in US dollars. In the just completed
November 2012 presidential election, gold is now over $1,700.00 per ounce in US dollars, and silver is over $33.00 an ounce in US dollars. So, gold has more than doubled in value, and silver has more that tripled in value. The printing of more dollars, coupled with our trillion dollar deficits and over $16 trillion
of national debt has had a negative impact on the purchasing power of the dollar. If the Obama administration keeps up the trillion dollar annual deficit spending, our dollar just might go bust. So, if you can, start accumulating gold and silver coins when you can.
