Buy my own county fire all the politicians then create my police force and every resident is required to join it. Upon enlistment they will be issued one or more departmental machine gun of their choosing at their own expense.

The department will have backhoes ready for goblin disposal needs

I would obviously pay off all my debt. I would tithe to church. I would also make a large donation to the Salvation Army. I would buy a home for each of my kids, my mother and my mother in law. I would stay in the home I am in. We have worked too hard to make it our own. I would retire from my job. And I would open a gun store.

I would first hire a full time nurse for my neighbor. I would then pay off the debt of people that I care about. Then I would donate to different places and then travel and buy toys!!

I would get an old Flxible bus and fix it up into a hot-rod RV (like on Jay Leno's Garage) and build a custom trailer for the guns and maybe an extra bedroom, then I would spend time traveling the country so I could see all of the wonderful chit all Y'all here keep bragging about. I would keep probably $2 mil in investments and live off the proceeds and in my travels I would look for a few properties outside of CA that might make good places to relocate and/or spend time outside of CA. Most of it would probably go to charity.

Of course to win one has to play and that I don't really do.
