Get that Must Have Gun SOONER rather than Later
This is a "preview of coming attractions" comment about the post-election (November 2012) economy.
I recall when Jimmy Carter was president and the absolute mess he made of our economy. Economists had to invent a relatively unheard of term: stagflation. That was because we had a stagnant economy with unprecedented inflation--previously, it was considered impossible to have a slow economy AND inflation at the same time. OK, enough of the flashbacks.
We are now in the midst of what I see as a clamped down, stifled economy. Prior to this, we have all witnessed record setting spending by President Obama. Normally, when you have run-away spending, that triggers high rates of inflation. However, with our stifled economy, inflation does not yet have a chance to get ignited.
Once the economy gets started on an upward trend--Katy bar the door!!!
Sooooo, when the inflation does get started, it may be historically high for the USA--and we will have a new President. Guess who will be blamed for that inflation???
Anyway, do not wait for the inflation to get started. If you have a short list of must have firearms--or other key items--please do what you can to purchase those items sooner rather than later. Because once the inflation gets going, the prices will be running away from you!
