Please allow free trade in silver. Specifically, allow people the freedom to purchase what they choose, in an open market. Approve the Silver ETF, so individuals that wish to 'save' won't continue to be punished with artificially low interest rates, and be forced into a lower standard of living, or forced to speculate in equity market they don't understand.

A proud American Saver
