Smyles: I am not far behind you. I'd take the 10% hit if I could think of anyplace safe to put the money. But the government has confiscated gold before and will do it again. And I doubt any offshore haven will be safe if Uncle Sam says, "Hand over the money or go to war."
We went to war with Iraq over their plan to stop using the dollar for oil. As the government gets increasingly desperate, I can easily see them threatening any tax haven with annihilation if they don't come across with the funds.
