A web site fueled by social media with a good dose of frustrated unemployed/under-employed citizens have taken to the streets. Occupy Wall Street is an ambiguous gathering of protestors whose main agenda seems to be exercising their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble. Secondarily, they want to send a message to the haves that the have-nots are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore!
OWS is organized and has taken to the streets in various locations in NYC. The conservative right has resorted to name calling, the liberal left is praising them as revolutionaries. Our observations are this protest is just one incident away from turning into full bore riot of tear gas, rubber bullets & fire hoses. The powder-keg is simmering and has a chance tomorrow to explode as the ground keepers of Zuccotti Park attempt to repair & clean the park.
What does this have to do with rare coins & precious metals you ask? Simple. Now is the time to invest in something tangible that you hold in your personal possession. Should this turn into a violent protest we could see it spread in much the same way they have in various places just this year. Think about the governments that changed in the Arab Revolution or the protests in Greece & other places in Europe. Could this happen here? Could this signal the start of a collapse? Possibly, if it is; those who are prepared will have the best chance to survive with minimal impact.
