Russell goes on to say, in part:
Those who think gold has lapsed into a bear market simply do not know what they are talking about. Gold has simply been correcting in an on-going bull market [See my article entitled These Charts Say It All: GOLD Is STILL a BUY] .
This is a time when almost every central bank in the world is grinding out paper currency, grinding it out by the car-load. This is a time when people are searching for safety. People are frightened and confused. Where is the land of safety?
There is only one safe asset on the planet – and that safe asset is gold. Uninformed people believe gold is just a commodity. Wrong! Gold is absolute money. Gold alone is the world’s only completely safe currency. Gold has no counter-party against it, and no central bank has ever found a way to create gold. The fact is that gold can only be produced by the sweat ingenuity and capitalization of men.

The key to the entire situation today is something you don’t hear anyone talking about. I am referring to PAIN. I am referring to the fear and avoidance of pain. When a man loses his job, it’s painful. When a man does not know how he’s going to feed his family, it’s painful. These are basics that every politician knows about.
The first job of every politician is to get reelected. If the politicians’ constituents are feeling pain they will not vote for the politician who represents them. Every politician knows this, and thus politicians always vote for spending plans that they hope will keep their constituents happy. [For more on the subject read America’s Political Process Guarantees Another Financial Crisis!] During the years following World War II politicians have OK’d an endless parade of spending bills. As a result the U.S. national debt has grown to over $13 trillion dollars – an amount that would have been considered inconceivable just a few years ago. Almost every nation on earth has indulged in the same kind of fiscal madness.
To cover the insane spending, nations have had to create an almost endless amount of fiat currency. This avalanche of “money” has steadily reduced the buying power of almost every currency. The result is that it takes increasingly more paper currency to buy one ounce of real money – gold.

With what is happening with the price of gold these past few days it is imperative to take a look at the long and short of it all (the trends, that is). In doing so it shows that we are still very much in a long-term bull market but in a short-term (yes, short-term) bear market. Let’s take a look at some charts that clearly outline where we are at and where we could well be going. Words: 625
A perfect storm of converging criteria is almost perfectly timed and aligned with the 2012 election cycle. When the moment arrives, the financial earthquake will rapidly demolish the existing highly precarious financial system. Government will stand by helpless, unable to shield itself, much less its vulnerable citizens or private financial institutions from the tsunami of debt and currency destruction. Let me explain.

If the temperature of full gold fever is a hot 106, we’re only at 99 now, but I can feel it, I can tell you that the temperature is rising, rising. The panic to buy gold will override everything else. It will be one of the greatest financial phenomena that most of today’s investors will ever see. It will blot out everything else like a cloud blotting out the sun. After the calm, comes the storm. We’ve been watching ten years of gold climbing amid an atmosphere of calm. The great gold tsunami lies ahead. It will be historic. Words: 480
Sadly, the great American public doesn’t understand what is happening…[and that it will be] on a greater scale than has ever occurred before in the history of mankind. It’s going to hit the current generation of Americans like a whirlwind. It will be historic in its intensity and destructiveness. [Here is an attempt to enlighten them.] Words: 939
