What is your excuse for not buying silver?on October 17, 2011 at 14:11
We all have excuses why we are not doing what we’re supposed to do (or not supposed to do!). Anyways, let’s consider for a moment people’s excuses for not buying or acquiring silver, physical silver that is, and maybe more importantly, attempt to briefly refute some of their excuses:
1. “I cannot afford to buy silver”
Yes, some people can honestly not afford to buy silver, normally not because they’ve failed as people, but because the corrupt debt-based currency system has largely failed them. There is however many people who outright say that they cannot afford to buy silver, but when you ask them at what price is silver currently trading, they simply don’t have a clue! This is a tell-tale sign that they’re just giving an excuse for the sake of giving excuses; shame on them.
2. “Silver is too expensive”
Many give the excuse that silver is too expensive, so while they might have enough money to buy or acquire silver, they choose not to do so based on that excuse. Well, the truth be told, physical silver and paper silver should not be confused; the two are worlds apart. Paper silver, except for silver shares maybe, is as far as we’re concerned too expensive at any price. In addition, is it really fair to use the paper price or silver price as quoted in the mainstream media and use it as an indication of physical silver’s value? We think not, especially considering that premiums of up to 40% over the spot price (silver price) are not uncommon or unheard of in the physical silver market. Please consider silver market manipulation and the “paper gimmick” before entertaining or making statements that “silver is too expensive.”
3. “Silver is too volatile”
Yes, the silver price can be pretty volatile. This is why you should buy silver for the correct reasons. If you’re chasing paper profits, then you have only yourself to blame if you get burned by silver’s volatility, because you have to accept the fact that illegal silver market manipulation and the “paper gimmick” is pretty much still at the order of the day. This is why you should, firstly, avoid paper silver like the plaque itself and only buy or acquire physical silver, and secondly, try to apply Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA), which means you buy silver at frequent intervals to get a good average price.
4. “I don’t know anything about silver or silver investing”
If this is your excuse, then rest assure that you have free access, not only to the Silver Bullion website, but a variety of other silver resources in order to educate yourself. You can after all lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink!
5. “Silver is not food. You cannot eat it”
This is probably one of the most ridiculous excuses that we’ve heard, and as ridiculous as it is (not may be), more than one person has brought this excuse up in conversation. Yes, silver can indeed not be eaten. You must truly be deranged to eat silver or think it can be eaten or serve as a replacement for food, hell no! The idea is to replace fiat currency (non-redeemable paper notes, electronic money, paper money, fiat currencies), not food. Apples need to be compared to apples and not apples to oranges. This being written, make no mistake about it, if you only stock up on food and no silver or vice versa, then you’re surely looking for trouble. The secret when approaching silver, food and such things lies in one word: BALANCE.
In addition to the above, don’t forget that silver is money, especially in the form of silver coins, and is among the best means to protect the purchase value of one’s monetary wealth. Food can only last that long, before it needs to be consumed, traded or left to be rotten!
6. “My religion forbids or discourages me from buying or investing in silver”
Some people use religion as an excuse for not buying or acquiring silver, especially among those who call themselves “Christians.” The brutal honesty, the naked truth or whatever you want to call it, is that many of them twist the Christian Scriptures to their own damnation. They conveniently forget about the fact that usury for one or debt at interest is strictly forbidden! If you’re a Christian and its holding you back to buy or acquire silver, then we urge you to read here for the sake of you and your family.
Now we can go on and mention and refute even more excuses given by people for not buying or acquiring silver, but we feel we have covered the most common ones and the bulk of these excuses can be refuted through sheer common sense (a valuable asset that so many people neglect nowadays, because of religious and political madness!). If you’re looking for reasons why to buy or acquire silver, then look no further.
