ReadyNutriton Guys and Gals, this article deals with preparation on a different slant: something you may be able to do in your home state to protect you from “Big Daddy” the Federal Government. Remember, preparation is not only for ELE’s (Extinction Level Events) or an apocalyptic cataclysm. I would venture to put forth that when one loses their home, this is an apocalyptic event in itself. One of the things that you may be able to use to prevent this “capture” of your home by the Federal and State government is a Homestead Declaration, and I encourage all of you to pursue this simple avenue if it is available, as I have here in Montana.
The Homestead Declaration is a homeowner’s sworn statement that claims their property as their “homestead” and that claim is recorded with the clerk of the county courthouse. This state law enables the property owner to ‘set apart’ their property (the homestead) and ‘designate’ it as such I the interests of protecting their home from a forced sale, thereby protecting its owner equity and denying such a sale to pay off creditors.
Sounds simple? Actually, it is. This is how I did it in Montana for my property. I went to a place that specializes in legal forms, and purchased my “Homestead Declaration” form for $9.00. Then I filled it out in the County Courthouse. The clerks helped me with it, as it is required to identify the property both by address and by the plat number they have in the courthouse. You need to bring ID with you and any other persons who are on the actual deed to the property, as the document is notarized. The fee to file here is $16.00 and it is done.
Here I was able to go directly across the hall, pay the fee, and obtain for 50 cents a copy of the document and a filing number. The original is then filed, later registered, and in about a week or two they send you the original in the mail with the county seal on it. There it is! A done deal!
Let me tell you what this document does and how it protects you. As mentioned, it is a Constitutionally-protected law, as the states that do this enact it on their own…a power reserved to the states. In the grand scheme of things: to a certain assessed dollar value, they are not allowed to take your home. For us here in Montana, that amount is $250,000, and rest assured, my home is much less than that figure. Now let’s discuss what this does for you, and how it relates to the big picture, specifically Obamacare and Medicare.
The feds and states are almost completely “in-sync” with Obamacare. What the feds can’t grab the states can scoop up, and vice-versa. In Montana, if you do not have health insurance, the state government automatically enrolls you in Medicare. The bills that rack up you will have to pay back, rest…
