This isn't the Alamo but rather Valley Forge

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Other nonprofit groups are doing their new year's appeals and GATA, already inadequate in fundraising, would be still more negligent in not attempting one too, so here goes.

While our exposure of surreptitious rigging of the gold market has produced some pretty good successes over the last year and has encouraged others to examine the subject --

-- the enemies of free markets and limited and accountable government have intensified their efforts too. While they have been forced to become ever more heavy-handed and to raise suspicions about themselves if not to give themselves away outright, they have also devastated the monetary metals industry and its investors. The industry, largely oblivious to begin with, ignorant of both the monetary nature of its product and the control of the price of its product by central banks, is more cowardly than ever, long having betrayed its fiduciary obligation to its shareholders. And even those of its shareholders who understand what's going on are mostly busted.

Financial donations to GATA have dried up and now we're running on fumes -- even as opinion on gold market manipulation is turning in our favor.

This is not the Alamo; we're not going to be wiped out until they turn off the lights and the Internet and close the borders, and long before that ever happens the bad guys will be out in the open and will have many more adversaries than little GATA. The situation for us right now is rather more like Valley Forge -- with boots we'll march again. Two very promising expeditions are already planned, and the bad guys are more vulnerable than ever.

We're so grateful to those who have stood with us despite the recent adversity. We appreciate and understand the terrible losses suffered by our friends who have fallen away in despair. But we think this struggle is still worth waging -- and insofar as it will determine the method of valuation of all capital, labor, goods, and services in the world, a democratic, market valuation or a totalitarian one, it still seems to us the most important struggle in the world.

If you believe in this struggle but have not already sent some help our way, please consider doing it now. It will make a difference. It can be accomplished here:
