Obama Proposes Retirement Account Limit In First "Wealth Tax" Salvo

Personally this wants to make me puke! STR takes a position in their goal statement of Striking the Root of evil to freedom. Here is one of the roots of evil which needs to be removed. Note I said one. My point is that I do not see any actions or hear of any actions STR takes to plunge the dagger of relief into the heart of the beast. I am aware of one person who proclaims to be doing this, but mostly all I see is talk.

Of course there are other evil roots that need to be addressed as state governments and local governments needing to be delt with. Freedom is not going to be obtained by chit chat. Action of some form needs or must evolve into a plan of movement

I am coming to the point of presenting a new thought. The current government needs to be reduced and to do so requires a mass of awakened people. (That is not going to happen. They want free stuff). Once the government can be reduced in size the idea is to keep reducing it until the government finally recognizes that they do not need all that has been and finally goes away. Once this happens there is no longer a "republic" not that it is a republic anyway.

Why is it so terriably wrong to work towards a smaller and smaller government until it can eventually be eliminated? There has to be something that can be done other than talk and disagreements about the finer points of all the -ologes and -isms.

All those who have accumulate a massive amount of money, according to the article, are still going to be asleep or they are going to move their funds to a safer place, maybe even move to a country more congenial for their prospects. In the mean time you and I will be drained just like Greece. I only hope I can predict when this is going to happen so i can pull my money. It won't be much but better than letting the government get it.

Forgive my diatribe of vindictive erruptions. I mean no ill harm, it is just that setting by idely and permitting this atrocity to persist is heart sickening. 2025 is too late. I will more than likely be dead by then from when they come to confiscate my firearms. Currently this is the most I know to do to Strike At the Root...too little, too late.

Let me be the first to congratulate you. Your 'new' thought must really be a watershed moment
in your life,LOL. Only problem is 'I SEE YOU' as an unrepentent statist attempting to cleverly
masquerade as a wannabe voluntarist/anarchist. Might it be because,for decades, you were
irreparably damaged by the public fool system? Will you suggest we dust off
our 'annie oaklies' and straighten out city hall? Most here have a well traveled road from ? to conservative
to libertarian to voluntarist.So they comprehend the significance of the NAP/ZAP.

It would seem though that you do not understand the money issue at all.
But that maybe part of the play.

You have(unwittingly i think.) come to the proper action concerning the aggressors.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” ~Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Think Jews and nazi-germany. If every Jew would have dedicated themselves to taking just one
Nazi-Policy-officer with them;maybe more than one,the holocaust would never have happened.

I intended to engage this then realized it would just be talk. However, regarding your last two sentence sentences. I am not a stickler to mass collection of articles, therefore I can only recall one which I read recently this past week regarding the Jews. They were being warned, as I understood it, of what was happening but they refused to believe. They accepted the idea of collecting the guns would make them safer. Afterward they were encouraged to go out and try to find a gun somewhere and hid it, but no, they felt no need. They were safe. Nothing was going to happen. I wasn't until the Polish detainment center did they come to realize something was wrong but still refused resistance. Some were not so stupid and they did obtain weapons and a battle did wage in the Warsaw gettos. Too little, too late and you know the rest of the story. Oh! You must remember that Hitler initiated a gun confiscation program because a gun registry was set up in the earlier years before his arrival on the scene, so it was made easy for him. You might enjoy www.JPFO.net I think. It's Jews for the Preservation of firearms Organization. The site is operated by a Jewish Rabbi. Even today he has a difficult time in convincing Jews to own and learn to use a firearm. He also provides some history as well as to why Jews will not defend themselves.
It is my belief this is happening to us now. I own a number of firearms, around $7000 worth. Small price compared to many of the people I know. Even gun owners can be sheeple to my utter amazement. Given my age I don't give a s**t. They come to my home and want my guns fire will come from the end of my barrels. I love my Mossburg 930 tactical, ten round, three inch 00 buckshot. All my firearms are free floating and within reach in any room of my home. I don't expect to last long but I am sure I will be dead when they get my firearms. Part of me is contemplating hidding all of them, file a police report that they are stolen. I am elderly and sometimes I forget to lock my doors. I have gone off for a weekend and the garage door was left wide open. Would be easy to steal my collection. (Ha! I'm old but not stupid)
As far as the ecomonic issue you are absolutely correct. I have absolutely no F***ing idea about it. All I know about money is that I get it in my retirement, I use one third to purchase non-perashables to store. I cure meats, dry them and vaccume pack them and hang them outside in trees. I buy lots of tollet paper, booze, tobacco to use as barter. (Toothpaste, cologone and womens toilitries are good bartering items as well) I have a reloader, brass and bullets, powder and etc. to make my own ammunition. But as for economics. I couldn't tell you s**t about it. All I feel certain of is that not too far down the road it will be worthless even all the gold and silver coins you store. You can't eat it and many who are well supplied wouldn't give you a sandwich for a bag of gold coins. Should you indulge in prepping for the future avoid the stupid assed seed cans they are selling. As I have read they are seeds that are inappropriate and climate is not considered an intelligent purchase. One gives you only 30 tomato seeds, and you need 10 seeds to confirm quality of germination and know how many seeds will germinate.)

There yoou go Darkcrusader. My question is "What are you doing to get ready?

"...or they are going to move their funds to a safer place, maybe even move to a country more congenial for their prospects"

There is no safer place.
In the past, this used to be the so called offshore tax havens, but thanks to the
OECD-Standards that have been implemented since 2009 , if you dont pay your "fair share" you are a "Money-launderer"
in the same boat with drugdealers or terrorists.You now will not be able to open an account, and if you already have one,
you and your frozen savings will be handed over to the taxauthorities of your Passport country, they dont even
have to ask for it.
You may circumvent this under certain circumstances and with some effort by playing along with the law,
but laws can be changed easily.What happened to the "big-time Investors and russian oligarchs"
with their 100000 Euro accounts in Cyprus could happen to you anywhere, anytime.
