It might be nice to include information for those who must pay by check or money order (like me). To what address do we send the money? To whom do we make out the check or money order?

rice farmer, as you can see, i took the hint.

I am moved to give 200 USD by check. I put "for Mike Ruppert" in the memo.

I would give more but that is about my best for now.

God Bless you Mike and keep in touch.


PS. If you haven't already done so, you might want to open up an offshore IBC to help keep the tapeworm from eating your funds.

Anne, an IBC is International Business Company. Registered in a tax free offshore zone like Belize, Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Cook. Islands, Dominican Republic, Gibraltar... big list here:

And so the thing is this: You get a registered company and you pay the yearly fees but you don't pay any tax. Zero.

While American's are not supposed to own a foreign company or bank account without registering that fact, off shore zones don't report to the IRS unless there is a criminal investigation. While not perfect, it beats registering a US company and dealing with all those documents and taxes.

Best case - Get your foreign wife to be named as owner. About the only country in the world that lays claim to foreign earned money is the USA.

Bad news - The offshore zones are coming under increasing scrutiny and some priveleges may be removed through time. But still, law abiding citizens are expected to enjoy not paying any tax as far as I know. The US Chamber of Commerce is offshore, the big 4 Audit companies are offshore, big metals and energy companies are offshore, lots of little traders... this is the way to go.

Alternatively, for Americans, you can do the following legally: 1) Say someone owes you 1500 dollars. And say that the liberty silver dollar is going for 10 dollars each at your local coin shop. 2) give your client a list of local coin shops and say that he can pay you 100 silver eagle dollar coins instead of the 1,500 USD. 3) then when you report your income to the IRS, you can legally report the income of 100 dollars because the silver eagle dollars are legal tender at face value. To report less, ask for the dollar gold eagle dollars. George Gordon has been doing this for years at

So we can kill the tapeworm from our lives and we can inspire our Clients and colleagues to do the same. There is a way.

I am not an expert but I have proximity to these issues. For deep analysis, loads of info is on the internet.

In short, getting totally offshore in an IBC or trading exclusively in legal tender eagles is a way to pay ZERO tax for many people legally. The actual determination of your personal qualification and related risks is, as always, totally up to you as an individual.

For those of you out there looking for advice, I have to say to simply not take anyone's word for anything and always take full responsibility for your financial actions.

Good luck!

Anyone have anything to add or modify?

Hi, I emailed FTW a few days ago, because my subscription should have run out a while ago - but is till letting view "Subscription only" areas of the site. No reply from you as yet. With Mike writing about potential (deliberate), IT screw ups - I wonder if this is a wider problem e.g. short term subscriptions just running on, and on, and on . . . in which case you could be losing a large amount of money. You can email me on - and I'll give you my full details so you can check it out. I'l also pay you some more money (if necessary), when you get back to me. Best wishes, Kim

some of Mike's comments in his farewell letter made me question the security of the FTW subscribers information. Is there any real cause for concern here?
