  •  If you want gold take your check and buy it (1+ / 0-)

    Maybe it will help you understand how currency works.  As long as you can take US currency and buy gold, it is equivalent.   If you are worried that the currency may become worth less down the road in terms of gold, then by all means buy gold or silver or Cracker Jacks or whatever you want.  Then try buying Cracker Jacks down at the grocery with gold and see how that works for you. Lesson learned.
