‘Save My 401(k)’

Posted by Larry Doyle on November 28th, 2012 4:46 AM |

No single topic has received as much traffic here at Sense on Cents as commentaries I have run over the last few years regarding the potential takeover of or infringement upon our personal retirement accounts by Uncle Sam.

Well, with the fiscal cliff staring us right in the face and Uncle Sam increasingly squeezed for that do-re-mi, the Old Man would seem to have his eyes right back on those retirement accounts. How so? (more…)

Will Uncle Sam Takeover Your IRA? Part II

Posted by Larry Doyle on April 24th, 2012 7:23 AM |

Those engaged in massive strategic maneuvers know all too well that progress is typically made not in one fell swoop but painstakingly inch by inch.

With deficits beyond the scope of imagination but oh so very real, I cautioned people to keep a watchful eye on Uncle Sam. Where might the old man go to beg, borrow, or steal money to fill that enormous fiscal hole? Your retirement accounts. I first broached this topic in early 2010 in writing, Blueprint for Government Takeover of IRAs and Will Uncle Sam Takeover Your IRA?.

Fast forward and we now witness rumblings around Washington that the drunken sailors disguised as our political leaders are discussing how to make a move on your retirement savings.  (more…)

Public Pension Ponzi Schemes

Posted by Larry Doyle on April 6th, 2010 10:50 AM |

Making promises that can’t be kept.

Garnering support via payback, if not kickbacks.

Effectively misrepresenting expected returns.

Am I talking about Bernie Madoff and every other con artist who has ever perpetrated a Ponzi scheme? No, although I could be. I am addressing the reality of the public pension system in our country. Those participating in public pensions can rail on me all they want. The simple fact is the power and leverage of the public unions combined with the willingness of public officials to sell their souls, while mortgaging our children’s futures, have created a massive gap in the funding of public pension liabilities in our nation today.

Ron Paul Freedom IRA

Posted by Larry Doyle on March 3rd, 2010 8:22 AM |

Might Uncle Sam look to confiscate your retirement accounts for purposes of funding our massive federal deficit and the enormous municipal pension gap? Initial steps are being taken in Washington that may very well lead to that reality. What can we do to protect our current retirement accounts and the sanctity of future retirement savings?

Support the introduction of a Ron Paul Freedom IRA. Where can we learn more about this? Let’s review analysis put forth by Ronald Holland, my guest on No Quarter Radio’s Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle on February 21st.

Ronald recently released the following report which provides a review of our current situation, the preparatory steps being taken in Washington to takeover your retirement accounts, and what we can do to protect ourselves. I recommend you read, review, and save this commentary as we will certainly want to refer to this in the months ahead.

Is Barack Obama preparing to take over your retirement accounts? Far fetched? Think again. This idea is not only being bandied about around Washington but elsewhere around the world, as well.

Are we to stick our heads in the sand and hope it doesn’t happen? That is no way to properly navigate the economic landscape. Where can you go to learn more about this potential economic and financial bombshell? You have come to the right place as tonight from 8-9pm ET No Quarter Radio’s Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle Welcomes Ron Holland. Who is Ron Holland? >>> (more…)

Will Uncle Sam Takeover Your IRA?

Posted by Larry Doyle on February 19th, 2010 11:06 AM |

Is the launch of government sponsored annuities a precursor to the formal takeover of your retirement accounts by Uncle Sam?

The groundwork for this possibility is being laid by the powers that be in Washington. Will it come to fruition? Only time will tell, but did you think developments over the last 18 months would ever happen? While we can hope for the best, we should prepare for the worst — including the potential reality of having Uncle Sam take control of your retirement accounts. (more…)

Blueprint for Government Takeover of IRAs

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 11th, 2010 12:05 PM |

An individual whom I highly respect submitted this commentary and requested I publish it. Given the respect I have for him, the depth of his perspectives, and the serious nature of this topic, I am happy to provide an outlet via Sense on Cents for his thoughtful analysis and projections. This commentary and the implications as outlined should give us all reason to pause and think.


Blueprint for Government Takeover of IRAs by Comrade Joe

This blueprint is imaginary; the references are factual. Let’s connect the dots:

1.  Learn from Argentina (Oct 2008):
Argentina’s Property Grab – A cautionary tale for anyone who owns a retirement account. – Argentine President Cristina Kirchner announced this week that her government intends to nationalize the country’s private pension system. If Congress approves this property grab, $30 billion in individually held retirement accounts — think 401(k)s — managed by private pension funds will become government property.  – Wall Street Journal 10/23/2008

2.  Study Professor Teresa Ghilarducci’s Paper (Oct 2009): (more…)
