Marc Faber : US Government Can Confiscate Your Gold

Marc Faber : “I bought gold at $1,400, I buy every month some gold, and I have an order to buy more at $1,300 because I want to keep an allocation towards gold – physical gold – and not stored in the United States at all times.” And when asked why he wouldn’t keep any of his gold holding in America if it’s supposed to be one of the safest countries in the world for assets, Dr. Faber answered, "Well, safe country? I’m not so sure about that under the present government. But in 1933, gold was taken away from Americans. The government paid them $25 and after, they revalued the gold to $35. So, basically what the government can do once again, and that is a possibility. They could artificially depress, manipulate the price down and then say ‘Gold is illegal to be held. We have to collect all the gold from the citizens.’ Say if they manipulated the price down to $1,000. They could collect it at $1,000 and then revalue to $10,000." - in Yahoo Finance
