Well, you get points for snarkiness, but you should have a few beers with me before you decide it's either paranoia or a delusion of grandeur. I don't think I'm important, if that's what you mean, but I used to do moneypunk stuff (like Bitcoin, except with gold and it was twelve years ago) and a number of people I worked with in that time have been imprisoned. Besides, I expect their watchlist is long, that the threshold for being on it is low, and that being on it doesn't lead to immediate obvious consequences.

Okay, that was kind of flippant of me. And in theory I can see how you're right. In practice, though, I doubt once the situation is so dire that even those in Congress are willing to implement far reaching spending cuts, I don't think they'll still have the luxury of deciding how they'll go about it -- I think they'll just keep up the pretence that they can spin gold out of straw until it all crashes.
