TB frowned on this in another thread on this topic but gold and silver should keep up with the inflation comparably and help pay property taxes, depending on how much you have. Maybe livestock prices will adjust to the dollar value.

Do you really think that if the economy has a shutdown or a slowdown any one would want your gold or silver. You might be just as well off raising chickens that are as sustainable as any other livestock out there. You could sell eggs and fryers that can be eat with out any refrigeration required. Chickens could pretty well fend for themselves.

Would anyone want your gold/silver if economy shutdown?
YES!


If the economy goes down a box of 22 LR will be more valuable.
Demand creates value.
Why do people have so much trouble with gold gains no value and pays nothing back. It is a hedge against inflation of a piece of paper only.

What part? The subsidies, cost share, low interest loans, beginning farmer loans, EQIP, WHIP, CSP, CRP it's all welfare and food stamps under different names and titles.



top guy in my county from 1995 - 2016 received:

$ 2,289,032.75

next was 1.5 million.

The Mccrainie brothers received over $6M in farm subsidies during that time frame. You also need to remember that cost share and other government programs are not included in the farm subsidies reports.

That's what I'm counting on. Stock up and during the next ammo scare you can sell half of what you have for 2 or 3 times the money.

I have some .22lr and after a good while now they have not paid me one cent in dividends.
They may(?) go up and down in value just like land, cattle, gold- but they are not paying anything.
Haven't even found a market or exchange that I can trade them on.
Except for private treaty deals they are pretty insolvent.

Good advice, but bear in mind it takes 3, sometimes 5 rounds of silver bullets to bring down a fully mature werewolf. Plan accordingly, and don't come up short on your storehouse of silver bullets.
