Given the current direction the country is galloping..."how do you not have bad dreams in the dark?" With the amount of existing entitlements already in place and the US running an ever increasing deficit, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see our future. Already some states are beginning to fail and can not even pay out tax refunds owed to their citizens. Unfortunately, states can not perform the “delaying tactic” of printing their own currency. Being off the gold standard, how much money, can the U.S. print before the currency becomes worthless? If China and Japan decides to no longer buy our debt, then the printing presses will be forced to keep running, non stop. Exponentially growing, our debt will in the end ultimately zero out and reset our economy and most likely, the world’s at large. This forestalling tactic of printing paper is in effect, “A National Ponzi scheme” and nothing more. What happens when a desperate government, who has taken over car companies, healthcare, banking, defense and education, who can tacitly tax you no more: comes to you in terror and says you can longer have private property- there is no more private gun ownership- you no longer have he right to free speech and it is for the good of all that you give your all to the collective. Their mantra will be, “You must decrease, that the collective may increase”. In the manic grasp of the all, the individual will not be of importance. Joe Biden, months ago said, people will no longer be concerned about how much money they take home- because the government will be providing for all. When I heard that- a chill ran down my spine. Afterwards no one else seemed to be listening. We have is 22% of the country dictating, what is to be to the rest of us. Am I in error on this?...who has the kool-aid???
