Trying to scare Americans about their retirement portfolios is a joke. One, few have any and two, they apparently haven't cared much about the last two lootings of said savings.|
And those of you who want revolution, not so fast. It will start with sporadic incidents of gunmen. These will give the government more excuse to take liberties away, and the silent majority, mom and pop Americans, the ones who let Nixon take their children off to death in Southeast Asia, will support the crackdown fully.
If you can vote in change, that's the way to go, but unless it's a social revolution, a government revolution, we're still headed for a really rough time. Now, if the government will simply default on its debt, "Sorry, treasury holders, the money just isn't there", then we can get a fresh start. There's a reason that we have such a thing called bankruptcy in this country. Though they won't ever admit it, I don't see how the politicians ever expect this debt to be paid back, or even serviced (pay the interest only).
Much better to just let things go the way they are going and prepare yourself with the goods you'll need to get through it. I'm thinking there will be 10 years of harsh conditions. Harsh for pussy Americans like myself, that's why I need to stockpile the neccessities and fluffery I've become accustomed to.
There are many non-violent solutions available once enough people have had enough. Slow down strikes, general strikes, strikes of certain critical industries like trucking, electrical workers, etc etc. We haven't even begun to explore the peaceful options available. The crack is flowing too freely from the government for anyone to be that uncomfortable yet.
And hey, if it's true that we CAN live our entire lives on unemployment, why not go along with the program? I'd rather be a poor freeman, than a rich slave.
