And they can do that. They can and will pass whatever laws that need to be passed to make it legal. Most people in this country didn't support Obabmacare, but we still got that, didn't we? What in the world makes you think they won't change the laws to enable them to expropriate, excuse me, tax whatever wealth they need to in order to fix the mess they have created? If need be, they will beggar each and every one of us in order to preserve themselves.
Right now, you have time to make preparations for this. I can't tell you what to do specifically, because we are all in different situations, but in general, you need to protect your assets. There are resources on the Internet that may be of help. Maybe you go ahead and pull the trigger on that bug out location. Maybe you buy some precious metals. Maybe you stock up on more food and ammo. Heck, maybe you want to adopt great-grandpa's approach and bury it in mason jars in the back yard for all I know.
But do something. Do not let the bastards take it from you without a fight.
