Your Country is Dying… And It Wants To Take You With It

We are nearing the end of the grand experiment in nation-states, democracy and socialism. In case you hadn’t noticed, it failed miserably. Hundreds of millions were killed in wars engendered by nation states and made possible by fiat currencies and countless more were impoverished by the central banks instituted by the state. Riots and protests around the globe from Rome, to Egypt to nearly every major city in the US now attest to that.
Countries, however, are like living organisms and they will do almost anything to stay alive. They have always treated their tax-slaves (citizens) as milk cows and they will treat them as beef cows if worse comes to worse.
It is for this reason that it is more important than ever to both understand what is really going on – hint: whatever the government or what the newsreaders on your nightly news say is not what is really going on. It is also more important than ever to begin to protect yourself from your own government.
HAVING A SECOND PASSPORT GIVES YOU OPTIONS
Last year I got a call from an online brokerage I use in Luxembourg called Internaxx. After having had an account with them for a few years they called to let me know they’d be closing my account immediately.
I asked the obvious question: Why??
The lady replied that Internaxx had recently been bought out by a Canadian brokerage, TD Waterhouse, and since I was registered with Internaxx as a Canadian citizen (I was born in Canada and have a Canadian passport) that Canadian laws state that no Canadian stock brokerage can accept a Canadian client when it is operating outside of the country!
So, even though I thought I was safely away from the criminal Canadian Government’s rules and regulations in Luxembourg, all it took was for a Canadian company to buy that brokerage and all of a sudden I was persona non grata.
Luckily, and smartly, for me, I have another passport and so I said to the lady, “I am also a citizen of XXX country, could you unregister me as being Canadian and put me down as being from that country?”
