Governments hate gold

Governments hate gold because they cannot print it, and it is difficult for them to control.
Because they cannot print it or easily control it, gold has little use to them during the never-ending schemes to tax and then redistribute wealth.
Legal tender laws mean that all taxes must be paid in fiat currency, not gold or silver (held in physical form).
Nothing but sponsored fiat currencies issued by the government is acceptable to pay debts and taxes.

To date, 42 states have removed some or all taxes from the purchase of gold and silver.

A similar effort will be considered in Olympia, Washington.
Passage into law would relieve some of the tax burdens on investors, and would also take a step toward treating gold and silver as money instead of as commodities.
