First a powerful Bill Whittle Afterburner
This is the problem that has reduced us from “The Shining City on a Hill”, to just another Zimbabwe. We’ve always had corruption, it’s inherent in an organization of human beings, but we have never so completely and brazenly ignored it.
Then there is this article. Do I necessarily believe it? No? But the very fact that I think it possible, and I do, tells you that the swamp is very high, and the alligators are quite hungry.
America and the coming break point
A revolutionary political earthquake lies up ahead. The popularity of Trump foretells this. We’re feeling the tremors right now. But the feeling of revulsion for the Washington establishment is not yet clear enough and widespread enough in the minds of the people to manifest in a revolutionary “break point.” But I believe such a lack of widespread clarity is the lull before the storm. And the storm is coming in the form of a pervasive economic crash that will shake up Americans in a way they have never before experienced.
It is then that the needed clarity will be achieved. It is in times of great crisis that people are susceptible to a more truthful view of things, and will be more willing to take revolutionary action. If freedom is to be restored in America, it will be at this time when the establishment way of doing things for the past century – political centralization and Keynesian monetary theory – comes under suspicion as highly flawed ideology and political tyranny. It is here when all is chaos and despair that the coming break point will be reached and a chance to restore freedom will be available to us.
When the crisis really hits, when the dollar is dropping like a rock in a dry well, when tanks are in the streets to restore order in scores of new Fergusons and Baltimores pockmarking the country, when unemployment hits 25% and no one believes the BLS lies of 5% anymore, when the Feds are snooping in the skies above with thousands of drones over our own country, when a smarmy President spews out still another unctuous speech from the White House about how “government is here to help you,” then the breaking point will be reached in the minds of the American people.
What happens next? I don’t know, but I would suggest that electing still another clown as president is likely not to be the answer. And the day is coming that the questions will have to be answered. And the penalty points are piling up.
