Happy Tax Unfreedom Day From The Dollar Vigilante!

[The following post is by TDV Chief Editor, Jeff Berwick]

Today is “Tax Freedom Day,” in the US, but that is already an oxymoron of terms as no such day can exist in reality because tax (extortion) is the opposite of freedom.

But, yes, if you are an average person who lives in the USSA, today is the final day where almost all of your earnings are extorted from you and from this day forward, theoretically, you can actually keep what you have worked for.

Those who have followed The Dollar Vigilante since its inception in 2010 have likely noticed numerous changes and iterations of our style and format over the last five years.

As an incredibly brief history, I started it out of a passion and interest in the information I was uncovering about the financial, monetary and political systems.  At first, like any fresh new blog on the interweb there were sounds of crickets chirping.  I'd write something and maybe 10 people would notice it.

However, within a year it had seemed to gain major traction amongst the "crazies" who thought that maybe there is a bit more to know than what you are told by the government or CNBC.

What Judge Napolitano Says About Rand Paul Might Shock You

[The following post is by TDV Editor-In-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

Libertarian circles have been in a massive debate about Rand Paul.

Small government libertarians seem fairly split on Rand, finding much of what he says to be "not that libertarian" and pure libertarians, also known as anarchists, are also quite split on whether Rand would be good or bad in terms of achieving more freedom and less government.

A Czech man has created a new country. He's calling it Liberland to celebrate the sort of liberty-based ideals championed by libertarians. But, his project is much more than just a libertarian enclave. Rather, it's a big step forward for freedom on Planet Earth.

Liberland is a new European country founded upon the principles of freedom, and that’s why I’ve applied for citizenship just three days after its founding.

[The following post is by TDV Senior Analyst, Ed Bugos]

I urge you to consider my arguments for investing in gold and silver, and the miners that extract it.

I am holding on to my post 2008 forecast for gold reaching $3-5k per ounce by 2017 (and silver reaching $100) because the world’s largest governments continue their plunge into default, and cannot afford to let interest rates normalize if they don’t want to be forced into a rationalization.
