The former manager of Clark County Nevada has written a book Rethinking Public Sector Compensation, which chronicles the ills that thousands of municipalities across the country now find themselves in. Bankruptcy is the only option for a system that has become unsustainable and corrupt to the core. Clark County Firefighters are pulling down $175,000 per year in salary alone, not to mention their exorbitant pensions and free tax-payer-funded lifetime health insurance. No wonder everyone is going Galt. Who can afford this burden?Eventually the promises will be defaulted upon, the sooner the better. Kudos to Mr. Reilly for finally telling the truth that has been hidden for so long. He has an open invitation to the show. We'll be trying to track him down to get an exclusive interview.

Andy Hoffman is here for his Monday Rant. Seems the worldwide economy is sinking faster than the standard of living of the average American worker. There's nothing else to blame but the collapsing dollar and the fiat currency based world economy. It is appearing more and more likely there will be nothing left standing in its path, except perhaps the few people that had the foresight to purchase gold and silver. Certainly, if you have any chance of surviving at all, precious metals are the road to salvation. Bu then again, maybe governments will become honest and banks will become non-profit organizations so we can all go back to buying stuff we didn't need anyway, but then again, probably not.

We sat down with Ty Andros today. We're both travelling so forgive the less than stellar audio quality. Even though the government would like you to believe there's nothing's happening here, just move along please. First, and most importantly, when Congress last moved to increase the deficit, they thought it would carry them till after the election. However, they were off by several months, so around 60 days before the election, they'll have to go back to an issue that is as radioactive as Fukushima. We'll see if they can put the genie back in the bottle till after the election, but it's doubtful. The implosion of Europe is moving right along and picking up steam as we speak. Freedom continues to be abolished in the US with the nearing passage of the internet security act, which of course is all for your benefit and safety. The charts continue to tell the true story of the economy, gold, and the dollar. Ignore them at your peril and always remember that with every crisis comes great opportunity.

Yesterday, on April 26, 2012, I was flying from New York to Florida. I always like to get a window seat so I can watch the "action." It was a very uneventful flight, calm smooth skies; just the way you want a flight to be. Periodically, I looked out the window to see if I could recognize any landmarks and to watch the planes heading in the opposite direction. About 2 hours into the flight, near the Georgia-South Carolina border, I look out my window, and there's a predator drone, presumably unarmed. At least I didn't see any missiles, but that's probably next! 

We are now living in the surveillance state. Inevitably, the surveillance state becomes the police state, where you can be detained without any probable cause that you've committed a criminal act. We've been losing our freedoms for the past 100 years and now the pace is accelerating. Think about that when you tuck your child in at night!

Although we really don't tend to discuss politics at FSN, Dr. Yaron Brook joins us today to discuss the American Motors of Presidential candidates we've got on the ticket for this year's election. Americans seem ready to vote Obama out, but are we as a nation really embracing the freedom that limited government can provide? Dr. Yaron Brook thinks the Obama healthcare plan is a diaster, but will the Supreme Court repeal it and put it out of Obama's misery?

Clearly, the courts lack a basic understanding of what the constitution means and what its purpose is. The courts have completely misinterpreted the founding document, which outlines a limitation on the role of government such that every law passed by the legislature is supposed to be qualified by its consistency with the constitution. Our government has abandoned the limiting principle that is the Constitution all together. However, Obamacare provides an opportunity for Da Boyz to say that the Constitution doesn't allow the federal government to mandate healthcare. The problem is the Fed has 100 years of precedence suggesting the government has no limits. We have a government out of control, and it will be really interesting to see how this continues to pan out during the election.

Trace Mayer and I sat down for lunch together in Manhattan today. We discussed the impending collapse, how governments will sustain themselves, and why it all means bad news for you. Trace, an author and proprietor of www.RunToGold.com, believes the current dollar/currency crisis could go on for many more years. My personal opinion is we're a lot closer to the end, than the beginning; perhaps, we're just one Black Swan away.

In any event, there are many strategies available for you to avoid suffering a disastrous fate, but you must act soon. The government, with its insatiable demand for cash to fund its overblown and inefficient operations, is going to be eliminating many of the techniques that you can now use. So, better to do it soon than to see all your options get cancelled out.

I trekked from New York to Philadelphia this past weekend to check out the End the Fed Rally and Dr. Ron Paul's Rally at the Independence Mall. It was very fitting that the birth place of the Constitution and individual liberty would be the venue for over 4,500 people seeking to restore freedom and cut back an increasingly powerful and intrusive government. From the interviews I conducted, it is obvious the "average" person has figured out the governmental scam and is appalled by it. We want our freedom back, and we want the government drastically reduced in size, power and expense.

Nick Santiago of www.InTheMoneyStocks.com joined us again for a wide ranging discussion about making money in the stock market. According to Nick's methodology, increased volatility is good for increasing investment returns. This means being able to follow the Fed's shadowy hand when they buy bonds and distort the market. Accurate charting is the key to following the moves. Buying gold, silver and perhaps some well valued real estate with your trading profits will help you go a long way towards the gold. Trading is not for everybody, or even most people, but if you have the right temperament it's a great way to make excellent returns. More importantly, use the current low interest rates and low real estate as well as metals prices to accumulate positions that will later allow you to profit or, at the very least, protect your wealth.

Danielle Park, proprietress of www.JugglingDynamite.com joined FSN today for another far-ranging discussion of what's wrong with the global financial system. It seems not a lot has changed since the Great Depression, and the lessons which were learned during that debacle were slowly forgotten. As a result, limitations on banking activity and financial instruments gradually gave way to a climate of cowboy, crony capitalism. The banks, while receiving extremely generous privileges from the government were able to avoid all limitations on their behavior and business practices. After the passage of Glass-Steagall, commercial banks were prohibited from engaging in risky banking activity. They weren't allowed to expand to other states and could only engage in sound lending. Throughout the years, that all changed and eventually the banks became the masters of their own destiny, as well as everyone else's. Yet again, we now see how this science experiment has wound up. It's time to restructure the entire financial industry, get rid of the zombie banks, and the performance of basic function of capital allocation and character based lending.

"Ranting" Andy Hoffman is back for our Monday afternoon get together. He believes the international crisis has entered a new phase. No matter how the politicians try to use inflated GDP numbers, uninflated-inflation numbers, or many other statistics, global economic activity is declining and people around the globe are getting more poor. China's on the precipice as is most of Europe and eventually the US. Manipulated markets are not healthy markets, and there's nothing real about any public market in the world. Therefore, get ready! Get your plans in place and sit back, wait for the inevitable. It will be here sooner than you ever thought possible.

Larken Rose, a noted libertarian, perhaps bordering on anarchist, spoke at the Ron Paul/End the Fed Rally in Philadelphia, this Sunday, 4/22/2012. Rose was quite impassioned, and he rallied the crowd. His perspective on government is that the functions it performs, it performs badly; individuals acting in concert could do a much better job. Rose's belief is that while limited government is a worthy goal of any society, in actuality it never works out the way it's intended to. Once Da Boyz have been given the right to tax, this quickly becomes the right to steal. This is how the United States has wound up in its current situation, tottering on the brink of collapse and totalitarianism.

Charles Hugh Smith and Rick Ackerman joined us today for another investment roundtable, and what to do with your retirement investments was a big topic. Each day, the government gets more desperate in their frantic search for new revenues to keep the bankrupt system afloat. Therefore, the multi-trillion dollar pool of private retirement savings becomes an ever more irresistible target for a rapacious congress, which is more concerned about feeding itself than helping Americans through the current economic malaise. 

This concept led to a discussion of survival investing and where to safely store your money. Charles introduced the concept of re-localization. There's a definite trend in society, where globalization was the buzz word for the past 20 years. But, the economic crisis has led to a rediscovery of local investment and entrepreneurial opportunism. Rather than looking to Wall Street to discover investment opportunities, we must look to Main Street to find profitable businesses that will lead us out of this economic darkness. Networks are being created to allow individuals to participate in this investment shift.

Teachers in Buffalo New York are up in arms. The State has mandated teachers receive evaluations in order for the schools to receive additional funding. The Teachers' Union has defied the State and refuses to allow evaluations. 

This all comes to you compliments of a debt based monetary system, which acts to perpetuate corrupt government schemes and ensures that union members get to line their pockets at retirement time, sometimes after just 25 years or less. New York will be completely insolvent in a very short time and will have to rely upon the Federal government to print more money out of thin air. Can such a system continue on indefinitely? Certainly not! The collapse is coming, it's just the date that hasn't yet been determined.

The uber Nannies believe that your freedom is what makes the world such a messed up place. If only you could be controlled just a bit more, things would be so much better. Whether it's smoking in New York City, donating "unhealthy" food to the poor, closing nightclubs and dance halls in Weston Florida, banning lead in hunting ammo, or banning feeding and hunting of deer, freedom is lingering in the horizon. Please don't take anything for granted. Will Da Boyz be coming for your guns? Your gold? How about your IRA or 401k? Don't be surprised, these people are totalitarian statists; so long as their views are given credence and they have power to willfully impose their ideas, no one is safe! We are living in unstable and uncertain times. Statism, while running rampant, is doomed because it restricts individual rights.

Jeff Berwick of the erstwhile www.DollarVigilante.com has written a report entitled, Getting Your Gold out of Dodge. Jeff believes that as governments get more desperate and continue to run out of money, they will resort to outright confiscation of their citizen's wealth and assets. This has already occurred in places like Argentina and Ireland and in many other countries. We saw this trend in Argentina, when the government nationalized YPF, an oil company partly owned by Spanish concerns. If governments will steal each other's property, who can rightly believe they won't go after their citizens' property? 

Therefore, Jeff argues quite persuasively that it's time to get a portion of your property out of the country and into more friendly economic climes. Jeff knows more about this subject than just about anyone else. As always, we enjoy Jeff's appearances on the show and believe that his ideas need to be considered by all concerned investors, the world over.

Ty Andros and I do the weekly wrap up today, Friday, April 20. Not much is happening in the world today other than Spain, Italy and the global financial system continuing their respective marches toward implosion and oblivion. As Lady Margaret Thatcher once said, "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." In the US and Europe, this happened long ago. Only now are we seeing the results of profligate uncontrolled government spending and the ceaseless expansion of the welfare state. 

If you've been following Ty and me, you know there's nothing happening now that wasn't long ago predicted by the Austrian Economists. For nearly 100 years, Mises, Hayek and Rothbard, among others, have been warning the world this collapse would eventually occur. Now, the clock has run out and the politicians have absolutely no idea what to do about it. You however, can do a lot to avoid going down with the ship.

We also covered current metal prices, and the reasons why they're stuck in the mud. Finally, we discussed what life will be like once the final collapse happens. These are very important issues that everyone needs to consider. Time is running out on the existing financial paradigm. Everyone needs to understand what this means to you, and how it will affect your lives.

Chris Duane joins us for our weekly discussion of the meltdown of the western Economic system. Chris also discusses the weird Blythe Masters interview on CNBC a couple weeks ago. Chris and I agree it seemed totally scripted and was only put out for some very underhanded reasons. Something big is cooking, and obviously JP Morgan is under a lot of pressure and used Blythe’s interview in an attempt to put some good publicity out there.  We have all seen how the Da Boyz can successfully manipulate the market for a few days, but consider that JP Morgan much like the Fed will only admit what they cant hide anymore.

Joanne "Jo" Nova has made a career of fighting a never ending war against propaganda, media manipulation, and ignorance. Jo is the ultimate climate change skeptic, and she's even written a book about it. From Australia, where she resides, her message resonates around the world; stand up, think for yourself, and stop letting the government think for you. This message, along with many others, is in her book Skeptic's Handbook, which has hit 200,000 copies. Jo is trying to get people to understand there's a lot more to widely held popular beliefs; thus, we all need to question them on a regular basis. 

According to Jo, the current economic crisis is not being caused by a failure of free markets, which haven't been seen around the world for over 100 years. Rather, it's the opposite that is the cause. Jo believes crony capitalism, manipulated central planning, and collectivist tendencies of governments worldwide are what have put us in this protracted economic instability and collapse.

Dana L. Meador is a CPA with over 27 years of experience in accounting, taxation, and business management. For the past 20 years, she has been a consultant to the insular world of ultra-high net worth individuals and their partnerships, trusts, and corporations (which have ranged from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries such as equity investment, real estate, restaurant, retail, banking, oil and gas, and online services).

Dana believes that for the first time since the Great Depression, our country is in real financial peril. People  want to follow a nobler path; they need a new breed of business executive to inspire them - one who is willing to set a positive example and prove to his employees that earning a reasonable amount of compensation and building a profitable company with purpose and staying power don’t have to be mutually-exclusive concepts. We must rekindle our ethics, reduce the disparity between the have and have-nots in this country and embrace global humanistic ideals that will restore our standing as the most respected nation in the world. With fear and desperation gripping our nation, there's no other way out; this is why Dana is seeking to spread the wealth shift.

Bob Chapman joined FSN again for our biweekly check-in. He believes things are going so badly in Europe, and they are getting worse by the moment. This means the elites must do everything in their power to keep the price of gold and silver in the cellar, no matter what it takes. But, it can only go on for so long until the market rights itself, and the manipulators get swept away. The good news is we're getting closer to that point, it's just a matter of time! While it's certainly a good idea to have some cold hard cash on hand, Bob believes it will only take a matter of days for people to adjust to the new monetary paradigm, when gold and silver become real money again.

James Jaeger is a noted filmaker and documentarian. We interviewed him several months back about his latest work Spoiler, which examined whether Dr. Ron Paul could wind up being elected president. Many people have questioned Dr. Paul's viability as a bona fide candidate, and the main stream media has all but written him off. However, Ron Paul has plugged on and has been experiencing a larger and larger following. Perhaps the ultimate question is whether the perception of economic well-being, which is totally unfounded in reality, will evaporate before the parties' candidates are chosen. From the looks of things, that's a very real possibility. If the collapse re-emerges then Dr. Paul's odds go way up. But if the elitists are able to stave off the collapse until after the summer, then he will be eliminated from consideration, unless he starts a third-party candidacy. To date, Dr. Ron Paul hasn't indicated if he's willing to do this, but he hasn't rejected it either. As of now, nothing is settled, and all eyes are upon the economy and Dr. Paul.

Ed Caccia is a loyal listener to the show. He's also a fellow New Yorker, and a very savvy investor. By studying history and understanding the life cycle of unbacked monetary systems, he came to the inescapable conclusion the only lasting wealth comes from the ground. While there are certainly other ways to earn a living or a return, resource based investing has proven time and again, that food, gold, silver, and energy are always worth considering as investments.

Ed and I also talked about the dumbing down of schools and their failure to teach American History.  "Those who fail to learn from history are destined to repeat it," this catchphrase has never been truer than today. Hearing someone in Ed's position explain how he came to understand that the present system was doomed can be very instructive. We're looking forward to having Ed on again for a follow-up interview soon.

Charles Hugh Smith is a published author who also has the blog OfTwoMindz. He has studied economic cycles and his prognosis for the country is not positive. But, he has developed a number of steps that you can take to avoid much of the brunt of the coming economic calamity. HisUnconventional Guide to Investing in Troubled Times is a must for those struggling to make it through these trying times. You need to be hopeful and optimistic in your own personal affairs regardless how bad things appear to be. 

Charles has new insights into starting a business and how to make it succeed. He's done it himself, unlike many others, so he has credibility that few others possess. His concept of Social Capital and how to use it to build your global internet presence is very poignant and relevant, especially to the Financial Survival Network. We've been doing it for a year now, and it has proven highly effective and valuable.

"Ranting" Andy Hoffman joins us for our Monday get together, fresh with news that YPF, a large Argentine Oil Company, partly owned by Spanish Oil Company Respol, was nationalized by the Argentine Government. Sounds like a trade war to us. But this underscores the point that no paper wealth is safe from the clutches of government. It doesn't matter what country's government we are talking about. Eventually, when there's an existential threat to its continued survival, no man's life, liberty, or property is safe. 

We're truly talking man versus state. And whether there's a socialist slant to the argument, is really irrelevant. Government is the destroyer of wealth, freedom, and the individual. What we are seeing now is simply a trend that has been forming for many years. The battle of the individual and his primacy over the state has been going on since man realized that some form of government was necessary to help ensure survival. Unfortunately, like all other man-made creations, what starts out as an asset, transforms into a liability. In this instance one that threatens everyone's survival.
