All it takes is the right phrases “support the president”, “should be in Ft Knox”, “hurting the economy” to get these people to lay down, sign away rights or in this example give the government power to take ones property ie gold.
It doesn’t amaze at this point of how many people just jump to do anything to support that communist in the oval office. I don’t call him that figuratively either.

This has happened in the past during the depression and should the government try to make this kind of move again in our future you can be sure real trouble will follow.
