''Let us not forget the reality that the US has plunged into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; nationalized healthcare has been met with fierce resistance nationwide; States are now litigating the demand for its citizens to sign up and/or be fined and imprisoned. TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace. The reality is that the financial crisis in the US now construct in the form of state failure exceeds any problems in Europe. Perspective is now in the marketplace, but reality will carry the day in terms of trend. Gold will trade at $1650 and better. The US dollar is no safe haven from anything.''
