    My whole point was this thread is a fraud. Obama is doing no such thing at the moment.

    And my grandfather gave them the middle finger and held 100% of his small stash of gold coins.
    He earned that gold farming and raising cattle.

    He was able to sell a few of those coins into the gray market near the end of the depression to buy real estate and thereby multiplied his small net worth many times over.

    As he had severe debilitating arthritis by then he was able to throttle back and do what he wanted the remainder of his life, like spending more time with his sons and grandchildren.

    He laughed when he told me this.

    I don't doubt that many, maybe most, of the voters that put Obama back in office would vote for the confiscation of 401k accounts if given a chance.

    Who in the Congressional Black Caucus would vote against the confiscation if it came up for a vote?

    When people get comfortable with the confiscation of income, why should they be uncomfortable taking savings?

    Obama doesn't have to lie. He says he has a "mandate" from the voters.

    And that is precisely why he wants to nationalize all retirement plans into one big govt retirement system. He mentioned this in his first campaign. Wasn't anyone listening?

    There has to be some NObama voters who regret voting for him now.
