Motto: "Her attorney informed us this morning, that although the deed is being assigned to my sister, my brother and I, that if my mother requires nursing home care through Medicare at any point over the next five years, that the Feds will take the house to pay the bills."
What follows below is the only correct, universally applicable plan for wealth management.
If you do not live in the third world, the truth of the foregoing is not a matter open to debate as far as you're concernedi, nor in any sense dubious or in any manner doubtful. It is entirely complete and absolutely accurate. It is also obligatory, as there's no alternative either present or contemplated.
If you live in what was the First World back before your grandfather let your stupid mother ruin it -- this is what you must do.
Step 1. Take all the credit you can. Max out all your existing credit cards, and sign up for any new ones from anywhere. Take a third, fourth, fifth mortgage on any real estate you might own. Sell any chattels (cars, wife, children, everything -- ).
Step 2. Turn all those proceeds into Bitcoin.
Step 3. Leave for a place outside of the fiat reichii.
That's it, and that's all.
And now for the caveats :
Caveat 1. You may have to take menial jobs to support yourself for a few years in your new jurisdiction, but this is par for the course for soviets escaping their socialist nightmare. Plenty of college educated russkis drove cabs in New York back when their college degrees actually signified some intelligence and some work. Bussing tables for a little won't kill you like it didn't kill them.
Caveat 2. Be mindful of what it means to own Bitcoin. Allowing an agent of the Empire of Evil (aka United States Government) to hold your Bitcoin "for you" such as through using a "webwallet" or similar does not mean you're holding any Bitcoin. Read and thoroughly understand the functioning of the Most Serene Republic's currency before you make the leap.
Caveat 3. If you own ~nothing at all (in other words, were born after 1970) then bleeding your credit cards for cash and trading that for a few Bitcoin quarters and dimes is all you've got. Do it right now, and be out of there before the weekend's over. If however you own significant property, the old termite wisdom very much applies : for maximal bleed you might wish to leave some parts for last and replace some other parts with cheap "equivalents". You know, just like the USG itself is doing.
Caveat 4. The USG "law enforcement" is not capable of successfully prosecuting credit card fraud within a one month window. It is perfectly safe for you to buy the blanks, buy the numbers, write them in and hit everything in sight -- provided you start no later than today and you are out of Nuevo Laredo by mid July. If you have either the connections or else a functioning head with a taste for adventure, this little goodbye salvo is de rigueur.
Caveat 5. Accept no substitutes. The USG full well understands TMSR will end it, and has been deploying the full array of nonsense to try and delay the inevitable. Among that arsenal, the constant nonsense surrogates. Do not accept Doge, Ethereum or whatever other USG-sponsored scamcoin-of-the-season in lieu of legitimate Bitcoin.
That'd be it. Bear in mind that "your" house is worth absolutely nothing as it is, but even were you to live in the ideal world you imagine, a house mortgaged to the hilt is worth ~0 by the very working of things. By the time you've taken all the real estate mortgages you can take, you have also possession of all the fiat value that there was to be found in those items -- if they were to burn tomorrow it wouldn't affect your capital position in any manner.
Perhaps they should burn, come to think of it.
In any case -- and make no mistake about this -- there is not going to be a fiat Reich left within your lifetime. There is a reason TMSR.MPEx is not paying USG any tax while USG.Maersk is paying TMSR everything it can, and then some. That reason is the simple and ineluctable fact that while TMSR is the sovereign, the USG is a mere pretender to sovereignity with no basis in either fact or ideology.
In other words : there will not be a United States tomorrow. The Republic won't have it. These aren't matters that require your approval, be it comprehending or uncomprehending. All you can do in face of the inevitable is to start planning accordingly. Today.
- To the brave souls that (driven by uncomprehending stupidity) would nevertheless attempt : try and understand that Trilema has made numerous (numerous as in, hundreds) predictions over its decade of continuous, domineering existence -- all of which seemed "insane" and "not even worth seriously discussing" to the horde of imbeciles, all of which came true. Trilema is still here, the horde of imbeciles changed numerous times over its lifetime, and will continue to change, because change is the only option left to he who would pretend sense is "insane" and "not even worth discussing seriously".

- On a first evaluation the fiat reich is composed of the United States and its allies -- Canada, Australia, Japan, Western Europe, Saudi Arabia, South Africa etcetera. [↩]
