Cash money now in a “safety” deposit box or anywhere is presumed to be illegal. This is the excuse to seize it, saying it is your burden to prove that you paid taxes on it, that it is not illegal proceeds from drugs or that it is not laundered money.
One bank writes to a customer, “Lessee acknowledges that the safe deposit box is not intended to store without limitations, such things as domestic or foreign currency whether in paper, coin, or other form.”
Why, in the last days of a regime, do governments come so hard after your cash or other assets? Why don’t they just print the paper money?
The answer is that if the government can take from the people, it will have to print less money, thereby extending the life of the system. The government desires, above all, to extend its socialist system. The more paper money that it prints, the shorter the time to the end of the system; because paper money is the rot of the country. The more paper money, the faster the collapse: So confiscation becomes the modus operandi of a dying system. Pension funds are in the political crosshair now.
It isn’t much fun to look forward to impoverishment by the state. Only those who leave the United States will be able to keep a part of their wealth after all the exit taxes. In the 1930s, not many people left Nazi Germany. Most people thought things would get better. They were wrong, much to their sorrow. In time, it was too late to leave. Very few people ever come to the realization that government, with its politicians and its bureaucrats, is organized crime.
Most politicians are members of a secret society, and they hold hands under the table. A large number of politicians belong to a death cult inspired by Satan. They will do anything for themselves against the people they are supposed to represent. Make a pact with the devil, and the price may be too high.
