Fear Mongers Must Have Loved Osama Bin Laden

| May 3, 2011 | 0 Comments

Let’s be honest.

It felt damn good to hear the President say Osama Bin Laden is dead.

Americans needed to hear those words ever since the horrific events unfolded on September 11, 2001.  And now that he’s finally gone, it brings a bit of closure.

No wonder spontaneous celebrations broke out near the White House in Washington and in New York City near Ground Zero.  The villain who personified terrorism was finally brought to justice.

I couldn’t be more proud.

America became the world’s greatest country by respecting people’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  And anyone who infringes on those rights will be brought to justice.

That America has shown the resolve to doggedly pursue our most public enemy to the ends of the earth speaks volumes about who we are.  And just as importantly, it flies in the face of what terrorists thought of us.

To that end, the decade long manhunt and the way it came to an end may prove to be an effective terrorism fighting tool.

Look, everyone knows we have the most powerful military in the world.  We can easily decimate a building or target with a smartbomb shortly after identifying a target.  But to have the will and fortitude to grind it out for nearly a decade to get our man must be demoralizing to our enemies.

Simply put, it’s a special moment.

After spending the last decade at war with terrorism, Bin Laden’s death gave us something to pin our collective frustrations on.  And it should erase any doubt that the US lacks the resolve or the will to make and follow through on the tough decisions.

It’s a lesson that should be applied not only to our military but to our economy as well.  Let me explain…

The US will be able to fix our economic problems for the same reasons we were able to bring Osama Bin Laden to justice.  We have the will and we have the resolve to do what’s necessary.

That’s why it’s so important you don’t listen to the fear mongers.  They’re employing the same fear tactics that terrorists use.  And in the end they’ll be wrong for underestimating America, just like Osama Bin Laden was.

You see, they’ll tell you the US Dollar is going to be worthless, the government will default on its debts, and the only things that will have any value are precious metals like gold and silver.

What they don’t tell you is there have been fear mongers preaching the same thing for decades.  And if they do admit it, they’ll be quick to tell you why “this time it’s different”.

But it’s not going to be different.  America as we know it isn’t going to end.

The fact is the American spirit is as strong as ever.  And betting against the ability of Americans to get it right when it matters most will always be a losing bet.

What does that mean for you?

Put your fears aside and invest in this historic bull market.

There are simply too many positive economic developments and too much money being made not to be involved.  And putting your money on the side of the terrorists and fear mongers who are fixated on the end of America has never been nor will it ever be a winning bet.
