Will the terrorist attack create a wave of fear that allows those in power to erode our freedoms?
One of the greatest fears from the terrorist attacks may becoming true. Security in the USA needs to be tightened, but not at thecost of liberty. The greatest tragedy of all will be if we legislate awaythe very thing we are fighting for, FREEDOM! If this happens theterrorists win.
A very sad warning shot came today in the message below from my friendRichard Duke who is among the best tax attorneys Iknow. Richard wrote:
"The Senate Banking Committee October 4 voted unanimously to approve a money-laundering bill that would direct the US Treasury to investigate and enforce sanctions against jurisdictions believed to offer special tax or regulatory advantages to nonresidents of that jurisdiction. Banking Committee Chair Paul S. Sarbanes, D-Md., and ranking member Phil Gramm, R-Texas, agreed to the bill on a bipartisan basis and dispensed with committee consideration after making minor adjustments to it. Gramm, who had blocked a similar bill in the previous Congress, said the new bill included due process language that would protect civil liberties. In addition to establishing conditions for enforcing counter-money-laundering laws and blocking terrorist finances, the bill would strengthen Treasury's ability to crack down on tax havens. It would direct Treasury to take discretionary action against foreign jurisdictions or foreign financial institutions that are characterized as tax havens, offshore banking havens, or secrecy havens by credible international organizations or multilateral expert groups. Treasury would have the authority to condemn as a primary money-laundering concern a jurisdiction that offers bank secrecy, or special tax or regulatory advantages to non residents." email@example.com
While we must resolve the problem of terrorism, we must also defend ourselves from those who will take advantage of this new war to line their pockets and centers of power at our expense. One way to do this is by keeping assets aboard through a legally structured offshore system. There are several avenues for accomplishing this that are still legal, including overseas bank accounts, offshore insurance policies, business aboard and foreign trusts. In each case it is imperative that you have an experienced and competent attorney who can help you create and monitor such a structure such as Richard Duke (specializes in overseas trusts) above or EClub advisors Leslie Share firstname.lastname@example.org (specializes in overseas business companies) and Joe Cox email@example.com (specializes in offshore insurance) Another step you can take is to join the Soveriegn Society an organization that is akin to the same principles of freedom, international living, individual sovereignty and the opportunities available in living a global lifestyle. There is a letter below from Stephanie King of the society which maybe useful to you.
The horrible events of September 11th have given an entirely new meaning to the word “security.” Personal security, financial security — the true meaning of a secure life itself — all now have been called into serious question. As a consequence of these depraved terrorist acts that took the lives of so many innocent people, some American politicians are hastily drafting new laws, using the emotions of the moment to justify curbs on our freedom. These new restrictions may well limit our financial choices and legal rights governing cash and assets that remain within U.S. jurisdiction and control.
Similar restrictions are reportedly under consideration in the UnitedKingdom, France and some other nations.
We fully support any new laws or policies that will truly combatterrorism. But terrorism will have won a major victory if we surrender ourliberties.
This sudden uncertainty about what the future may hold makes it notonly prudent, but highly critical, that you take appropriate action now toprotect your freedom and your hard earned cash, assets and investments.Even before this horrific assault on Americans, it was already a factthat life could be better, safer, freer, and cheaper in many other places.Offshore opportunities do abound, but multiple opportunities make it moredifficult to separate the good from the bad, the safe from the unsafe.
