Will US coins be the exception to confiscation?

I don't think they'll confiscate IRAs etc, they'll just pass a new law requiring all IRAs etc to hold at least 50% in US Treasury paper.

.Doubt .gov will go house to house searching as it won't be financial worth the trouble.
Correct and good post.
As always they will try to control choke points and on/off ramps...
As always there will be many loop holes and ambiguities...

I've always wondered about that.
I used to buy a lot of stuff for other people that didn't have an eBay account or a credit card.
If they come look at my past buying history, its all over the place and I'd say half of those things were for other people.
Same went for selling items years ago.
I'd sell things for a few friends that didn't do eBay.
I'd have no way to prove otherwise other than that I say it's so.
It wasn't a lot, so probably not on anyone's radar.
It could be a mixed blessing becasue at some point we may need some type of receipt. Online purchases would make that possible. On the other hand I'm sure TPTB have a nice little list of who and what is bought on major gold sites.
