What Wealth Confiscation
May Look Like For Americans
"Would the U.S. government really turn to a 1933-style gold grab again? .. I would argue that they wouldn’t, but that doesn’t mean the threat to your gold has diminished .. If the government is looking to confiscate wealth, they’ll likely go for the low-hanging fruit like financial accounts, which can be plundered with a few mouse clicks. Or they’ll continue to ramp up the inflationary money printing, which is a way to confiscate from savers .. If and when an executive order is issued to convert a portion of your retirement savings into unwanted Treasury securities, it will likely apply only to the most susceptible retirement assets — those being accounts with the large, traditional IRA custodians. These assets are soft targets for the government. They could be frozen, confiscated, or nationalized at the flip of a switch."
