On the issue of why give a chit, you have hit the nail on the head--the situs of relief from the current economic malaise doesn't come from either candidate, which is why there is no reprieve. But unlike aluminum, gold and silver do respond to degradation of currency, and for the record, neither tweedle dee or tweedle dum address the problem of print print print brought to you by the banksters. Those pinning hopes on Oblamer are whistling the wrong tune, and those that think Romnuts is the answer haven't a clue.
In effect for gold and silver, since Obama shows more penchant for costly social solutions to problems nobody elected him to solve, like healthcare, he is the best candidate to drive borrow and spend to the stratosphere, and is therefore IMHO bullish for gold and silver.
I defer good or bad for business or the country which relies on these philosophical differences to the who gives a chit pile.
