Default David Friedman's buddy Sam Sloan (Presidential Candidate) speaks

General Motors Corporation, who established the Sloan-Kettering Cancer
Institute and several other charities bearing the Sloan name.



None of this was true. The real truth was that my father's father died
a pauper in an old folks home. The Sloan Family did not even have
enough money to bury him, so my mother did tricks for his burial.
You'll die the same way. The acorn didn't fall far from the oak.




The thing that caught my attention was that he was a TAX Auditor and I
have to imagine that was a fairly awful choice of ways to make a living.


Being poor wouldn't seem so bad, but being a tax auditor for the
government would just suck the life out of anybody.


I look forward to the laugh I get on my death bed when NO one gets a
dime out of my death. I intend to spend every dime on the way out. If
I can't get it all spent I'll keep it in gold and silver and toss it
into the abyss just to keep the Socialists in government from getting a
penny of it to waste on their next give away program.

You probably do not have a wife and kids or any family at all. It is
easy to make such statements if you have nobody to look after.

A man I knew was a Libertarian (not a member of the party but in life-
style). He was extremely wealthy, a millionaire, with a country estate
on Long Island, and town houses in New York and San Francisco, plus a
yacht.

He never paid a dime in taxes. He got away with this by paying
everything in cash. He never wrote checks. There was no way to trace
his wealth.

But when he died, the government seized everything. His two sons never
got a dime from his estate.

By the way, I have reprinted several of his books which is why I know
his situation rather well.

Actually I have people to leave money for... the bigger point is that
I would be helping them more if I help force the government and them to
do the right things.

Money is NOT what fixes things, it's what you do with it.

A gun doesn't kill someone, it's how you use it.


That's why Liberalism always fails, they think throwing money fixes
things. They think giving people stuff fixes them. Liberalism is the
Problem, hard work and vigilance is the solution.

They can go get my money too, it will be right there at the ocean floor,
all they'll need to do is spend millions to find it and bring it up. I
may even leave some Quatrains or "De Vinci Codes" for the kids to follow
if they want to find it for some reason, or NOT.

He never paid a dime in taxes. He got away with this by paying
everything in cash. He never wrote checks. There was no way to trace

I paid all my taxes all my life, what can they do to me after I'm dead.
Put me in the grave yard jail?

But when he died, the government seized everything. His two sons never
got a dime from his estate.


As long as there is nothing to seize it won't matter.


By the way, I have reprinted several of his books which is why I know

maybe he also put a code in his books.

Could be he has a bigger fortune he is still hiding.
