Spending as little as possible is certainly advisable. Unfortunately, I dont know of a single possible investment that is invulnerable to taxes and outright confiscation. We are attempting to discover a way to barter, difficult in today's society; and, not all that many people have barterable skills. We desperately need to restore individual freedom in this country, and that means far less government at every level. We have also begun learning to garden. In WWII they were called "Victory Gardens". We place our faith in Christ, not governent, and pray for our country.

Not to mention being ripped off by the Banks and other Corporations........ So much for "Free" Enterprise; unless you can cut the cord(or control) from banking, healthcare, utilities, transportation and other features of American Capitalism today.....
