The time to prepare was at least 10 years ago when prices were not nearly as high but go ahead, at least having something extra is better than being completely caught off guard. And yes, it is only a matter of time before they force the Western world into the third world and it being totally done by design.
As far as gold, way too expensive and not a very good option for bartering. Just stock some silver coins and popular ammo to barter with. Alcohol, tobacco and marijuana will also be used for local bartering. So will hardware supplies and accessories (for construction/projects). Farmers always need hardware supplies, and people always need food. It will be a good trade-off after the economy collapses. What you will want to avoid is the digital currency system they are shilling today: that is all meant for total population control and further enslavement of society. We'll need to resist that at all cost, or America as we knew it will not exist.
