16 Reasons Why the United States is Going to Hell in a Handbasket

A couple of weeks a go after expressing an urgency to put our preps into high-gear, several readers asked why that I felt so strongly, about it, and why I felt the end” was getting close. I think that is a good and reasonable question, so I decided to do a write-up, and offer an explanation. As you can see, I don’t think any one problem or event will cause the collapse of the American empire, but a number of separate but interlocking events and issues.

Another point to consider is that the U.S. government has the resources, and inside information that would allow them to foretell when a major disaster or complete collapse is coming and they have been prepping and building underground bunkers on a mass scale and despite the fact our tax dollars are being used to build those bunkers we are not invited.

Free Trade with Communist China

Communist China is not our friend and has overtaken the U.S. economically, and will be in a position to surpass the U.S. militarily within the next ten years. Yet we continue to import, buy and consume their products by the millions everyday. In fact it’s getting more and more difficult to  buy a product in the U.S. that does not have the “made in china” label attached to it. U.S. goods and private services trade with China totaled $439 billion in imports 2012.

Meanwhile china uses those funds to build its military might and expand its military technology.  The U.S has even been selling and giving china advanced technology that could be used against the U.S.  in a military confrontation. A large portion of that technology has passed from the U.S. to Israel and then from Israel on to China.

In 2012 a pentagon contractor was caught selling military technology to China (no doubt bought with funds that U.S. consumers of “made in China” products had sent them) according to the report they had sold China the software and engines needed to make its first-ever modern attack helicopter.

A break down of the traditional family

America has turned from a nation promoting morality and a belief in God to a nation where anything goes, with the most perverse and ungodly acts being accepted, promoted and even glorified.  And if anyone disagrees, or speaks-out against this immorality they are quickly labeled as promoting hate, bigotry or of being a racist. This quickly shuts most opponents up while simultaneously, implanting the message in everyone’s mind, that those acts in-question are to be accepted and are somehow cool.

A  break down of morality

Everywhere we turn today we (and our children) are bombarded with images of sex and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, music, and TV. This constant bombardment has promoted promiscuity, and corrupted the minds of the American people and made us into a nation a degenerates and perverts. And in many cases molesters of children and even animals.

According to this report Americans spend 13.1 billion dollars on pornography every year

Americans spend 13.1 billion dollars on pornography every year, which is the same amount the country spends on foreign aid. More than 260 million Internet pages are pornographic, an increase of 1,800% in just five years. Christian Broadcasting Network said: “We’re living in a sex-saturated society. Even the popular culture is often pulsing to a pornographic beat. Clothing that was seen only in porn magazines decades ago, now drapes some of our most celebrated pop icons

A declining belief in God, the Bible and Christian values

According to a report on The Daily Mail,  “Americans starting to lose faith? Belief in God and miracles declines as Darwinism becomes more popular” from the report;  The number of Americans who believe in God is declining, as a new poll shows a move away from traditional beliefs.  The Harris poll, which questioned more than 2,250 adults about their beliefs, found that those with the strongest faith lived mostly in the South, voted Republican, and were black.  The online poll also showed that more Americans were describing themselves at ‘not very religious’ and that there was an increase in those believing in Darwin’s theory of evolution.

As a nation we are turning away from God and the religious principles that this nation was built on, these founding principles have been what has held us together as a nation and kept us strong, but it seems that we are banning God from the country and our lives.

Declining freedom and turning away from a constitutional government

We have been seeing a decline in freedom for a longtime but after 9-11 the loss personal freedom, privacy and constitutional rights have been on a rapid decline. Now we are constantly, watched, monitored and recorded, we can now legally be detained and held indefinitely without a trial or due process. And U.S. citizens can even be assassinated on U.S. soil by order of the president.

Just like the imaginary, war on drugs, the war on terror has been used as an excuse to trample on individual constitutional rights and to increase the power of the government and the ultra wealthy that control the country from behind the curtains. Scare the population enough and they will willingly turn over their freedom and rights for a promised margin of safety – even Glenn Beck was so afraid after 9-11 that he supported Patriot Act.

As has been said; and is practiced religiously, by those in power “never let a crisis good  go to waste“, this is also the same tactic that the Obama administration tried to use to destroy the second amendment after the Sandy Hook ordeal

A militarization of  the police forces nationwide

It seems that just about everyday I get emails from readers and read news reports of police abuse of power – everything from shooting and killing an unarmed and handcuffed man, to shooting a suspect in the back while running away, or a man executed by police for camping on public land (did you hear the “officer” yell, Booyah after shooting the man 6 times?), all justified of course,  to police shooting and killing chained and caged dogs. Even puppies and a 5 pound Chihuahua aren’t safe from thugs in uniform.

And now to make matters worse police departments around the country seem to be gearing up for war with military hardware, and tactics. Who do they plan on going to war with you ask, well the American people of course, who else. We are already living in a police state under a “soft” form of martial law, and they are getting ready to tighten the screws down even tighter, that’s why those in power are getting all of this in place.

A one party political system

Many Americans think that they have a choice when they enter the voting booth. Well guess what they don’t – republicans and democrats, democrats and republicans what’s the difference? Neither represent the American people or give one big crap about defending individual rights or the Constitution.

In the U.S. we have a one party system masquerading as a two-party system, to give voters the illusion of having a choice and hope for change, but both parties are controlled by the same people who really run the country. The system is rigged and we don’t have a choice…

Corruption of the political system

See above.  As former Governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura has said; when you spend millions of dollars to get elected to a position that pays a hundred thousand a year, we know those figure don’t add up. They are all a bunch of crooks – money, ego and a hunger for power has corrupted the American political system.

“The truth is there are very few members [of the U.S. Congress] who I could even name or could think of who didn’t at some level participate in that [system of bribery and corruption in Washington D.C.].” Jack Abramoff, professional lobbyist and onetime power broker for the elite of Washington, D.C. (during a CBS’s 60 Minutes interview, Sunday November 6, 2011)

School system used to indoctrinate children

Government ran school systems are nothing more than indoctrination centers for our children, a place where they can be groomed and molded to the liking the government via propaganda that was designed by trained psychoanalysts to make future generations of American citizens into subservient slaves in a Big Brother police state.

When I was going to school, I carried pocket knives, (so did other kids and no one got cut or murdered) and I even read gun magazines in the classroom and no one said anything, other than my teachers asking to take a look at the magazines after I was done. I think they were just glad that I was reading something. I remember one boy bringing a sling-shot to school, and we set up a cardboard box and shot at it with the sling-shot, while the teachers watched.

Now school is like a prison where everything is watched and monitored and any form of free expression is suppressed and quickly beaten down. They are training children to be adults who view being constantly watched and monitored by “authorities”  as normal and even to be welcomed and demanded by a subservient population.

They are also training children to be dumbed down adults that can not think for themselves, to have no personal beliefs, thoughts or opinion other than what they are told by the “authorities” via the government controlled main-stream media.  Children are

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!

— Adolf Hitler, speech at the Reichsparteitag, 1935

Please read – Hitler Youth… and Indoctrination by Our Public Schools.

A government controlled main-stream media via newspapers, magazines, radio, movies and TV

The stuff that you see on broadcasts like CNN aren’t news or reporting but the controlled media simply spewing forth talking points that have been provided for them by the white house and other government agencies – this has been admitted to by main stream “news” organizations.

The corporate media is now openly admitting that they are in fact controlled stenographers that do nothing more than echo pre-scripted narratives outlined in talking points created by the rulers of America’s shadow government.

They use the main stream corporate media to push their agenda and views and to pursued the American people to do and believe what they want them to do and believe all while believing that it’s for their own good and was their decision.  This is called mass media brainwashing and those in power are good at it.

People as drones, as automatons, in some kind of mind-control stupor, while thinking they are living in a free society.  I don’t say this with disdain, but more as matter of fact.

Taking control of the internet…

Just about the only semi-free media left is the internet, and that is why they want to control it. Currently the Obama administration is about to introduce a Chinese-style ID program for everyone and a few other tweaks that will afford government agencies and their controllers to tights their grip and control of everything done and said online.

What Obama has done to free speech is kill it dead utilizing a bias-oriented justice system and governmental control. He has effectively put the gears forward to shut down free speech on the internet, and is now planning an even more erroneous putsch that will destroy freedom of expression completely. Plans are coming into place for a Chinese style thought control program called the “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” which will force every internet user to completely give up their privacy, be labelled, and tracked even further than is usual by the NSA.

And now we have Democrats proposing trolling media, and internet for “hate speech” which will be defined as whatever they say it is. Folks it’s all about control, control of everything you do, control of what you thing and control of what you say, and the best way for those in power to do that is to have full control over all media outlets, including the internet.

Political Correctness is out of control

You might be a racist if you have an American flag, don’t like Mexican food, disagree with Obama policy, but the one 100% guaranteed way to know if you’re a racist is to look in the mirror – if you see a white person looking back at you then you’re a racist – because only white people can be racist. At least this seems to be the general assumption made by the main-stream media and race-baiters like Al sharpton, who would probably call me a racist because, I own white-leghorn hens or maybe it would be because I own two black giant hens, who knows how he would go, but one thing is certain he would probably find a way to make it racial and the main stream media would be all over it.

By now, I’m sure, that you’ve heard about the LA clippers owner Donald Sterling and his racist, comments that he made to his girlfriend during what he thought was a private conversation. And while his comments were undoubtedly, racist against blacks, those comments are his personal views and no matter how wrong those comments might be or whom those comments might offend, is he not entitled to his beliefs and to express those beliefs in a “private” conversation?

Apparently not. At least according to the NBA, the players, the media and fans nationwide. Because of his private (but recorded) comments he has been banned from attending any NBA events, he will have to pay a $2.5 million fine and they are trying to force him to sell his property, which is the L.A. Clippers team.

While his comments were offensive, and disgusting and he is obviously an elitist prick, should anyone be able ban him from public events, or force him to pay a fine or sell his property for something he said in a private conversation?

Almost as soon as this story broke the race baiter Al Sharpton was threatening to call for an advertising boycott of the NBA during an interview with TMZ if Sterling was not punished for his speech.

And who could forget the Paula Dean fiasco…  where she while under oath during a court appearance admitted to using the dreaded “N word” in a private conversation with her husband in the past, resulting in her being fired from the food network, being dropped by sponsors and having her merchandise pulled from store shelves across the nation. All because of something she said 20 years in a private conversation with her husband.

The list could go on and on, but I don’t want to waste anymore time on this. The race issue is being constantly poked by operatives of the federal government like Al Sharpton to keep racial tensions high and the government controlled main-stream media uses this stuff as a distraction to keep everyone occupied and infighting so we don’t come together and see what is really happening with their corruption, to our country,  to our economy and to our freedom.

They want to keep us divided alone racial lines so that they can better lie to and control us.

An entitlement mentality

Sadly, the United states is turning, (some would say it has already turned) from being a nation of producers and working folks to a nation of takers that feel that they are somehow entitled to “free money” for doing nothing but setting an their ass, watching TV, playing video games, drinking, doing drugs and breeding like rabbits, after all the more that they breed and produce the larger their check will get in most cases.

According to http://www.heritage.org/

America is increasingly moving away from being a nation of self-reliant individuals, where civil society flourishes, toward being a nation of individuals less inclined to practicing self-reliance and personal responsibility. Government programs not only crowd out civil society, but too frequently trap individuals and families in long-term dependence, leaving them incapable of escaping their condition for generations to come.

And according to Statistic Brain there are 12,800,000 Americans on welfare, 46,700,000 on food stamps or SNAP, 5,600,000 on unemployment, with a total government spending on welfare annually (not including food stamps or unemployment) of $131.9 billion. Folks these are the true zombies, that will be clawing at your door when the welfare stops coming and they get tired of waiting for the taxpayer to feed them.

Foreign companies taking over big business and buying up property in the U.S.

China and to a lesser extent other nations are buying up business and property in the United States, for example China recently, purchased 90% ownership in AIG’s airplane leasing unit, International Lease Finance Corporation, to a Chinese investor group for approximately $5.28 billion. And according to the same site the Chinese have also bought 80.1 percent of ILFC for approximately $4.23 billion, with an option for an additional 9.9 percent stake. According to its website, ILFC is ‘world’s largest independent aircraft lessor measured by number of owned aircraft.’

And it’s not only airplanes that the Chinese are interested in – CNBC reports that the Chinese are on a buying spree and sweeping up every energy and natural resource in the United States that they can get their hands on. And they’re even buying up and taking control of the U.S. food supply – China’s largest acquisition to date of a U.S. company, Smithfield Foods, is raising among market watchers who question China’s interest in taking possession of one of America’s largest food producers – via CNBC.

And they’re not stopping there the Chinese are also buying large chunks of land across America, according to Michael Snyder, it the Chinese are on a real estate buying spree all over America…

Declaring  anyone who doesn’t agree with government policies as having a psychiatric disorder

Support the U.S. Constitution, or disagree with government policy or the policy makers then you might have a  psychiatric disorder. After all according to B.O. we “wrongheaded” Americans need to just trust the government more and everything will be peaches and cream from then on…

Obama: “Wrongheaded” Americans Must Trust Government More

President Obama today said Americans had developed the “wrongheaded” view that Washington won’t look out for them, a fallacy he said was stoked by conservatives and their philosophy that says people are “on their own.”

Disagree with Al Gore and others on global warming then you probably have a psychiatric disorder, don’t want to join the Borg, then you undoubtedly have a psychiatric disorder because Psychiatrists now say non-conformity is a mental illness. Yep, nothing to see here folks, take your meds, and relax, everything is going to be okay. No more “wrongheaded” Americans allowed, you will be assimilated.

Folks this is being done for a couple of reasons, number one if they can legally declare you a nutcase  then they can legally and easily, take away your rights, or lock you up and two no one wants to be labeled or considered a crazy person, so most folks will shut-up and keep their thoughts about the government and governmental policy to themselves.

U.S. national debt at unprecedented levels

As of May 13 2014 the current national debt stands at 17,518,681,450,890 – yep, that’s a lot of numbers, over seventeen trillion in debt and growing fast. To put it into perspective and to see what a trillion dollars looks like click here. How much longer this spending and adding to the national debt can go on before completely crashing is up for debate, but the world is starting to lose faith in the U.S. dollar and are looking to move away from and out of the U.S. currency.

When the world (or a couple of key countries) lose faith in the U.S. dollar and stop lending to us, because of our massive  growing debt and our out of control currency printing, the U.S. economy will crash. This won’t happen over night, and has in fact been happening for years, but as we are getting closer to “the end” the whole process will be put into overdrive – we can see this starting now with our lenders using  their dollars to buy euros or yen or gold rather than U.S. bonds.

You see the U.S. dollar is backed by nothing but air and everyone with half a brain knows it – but the fact that many people still view it as having some value, allows you to be able to make purchases with it. But as you can see by the chart below since 1913 the dollar has continually, been decreasing in buying power and will continue to do so… This has been caused mostly by uncontrolled currency printing and increasing debt. For a complete breakdown of how the financial system “works” and is crashing please read  DollarCollapse FAQ’s this is the best and easiest  to understand explanation that I’ve found.


Well there you have it folks – my thoughts and a few explanations of what I think is wrong in America, why we are collapsing as a nation and why I prep.  I could go on forever, and we could get into issues like our failed foreign policy, the three global predator nations all fighting for control and to be the leader of the new world order, the corrupt banking system etc… but we will leave that for another day…

I would love to read your thoughts in the comments below…


  1. Sw't tater says:

    IF you don’t want to hear this… then just scroll on down…but I am compelled to answer as best I can, for I agree with..ARIZONA, on several points, and wish to clarify…
    . There is already a program of “reporting suspicious” actions of others in place and being promoted. Part of the common core is disguised as language correction, but is indoctrination to accept anything tdl says as fact.
    WE are always one generation from apostacy…fail to teach your children your values and the nanny will teach hers to them. and they will do as the above writer indicates, shoot you to do the bidding of ‘their instructor” ….. as For…. the “LORD”?, I KNOW!! He was right..and someday the unbelievers will as well….. and….actually He was speaking of the Laodiceans.,and the verse is specific. Chapter context of Rev 1:1 states these things will shortly come to pass.(.2000 years is not shortly.) .. but IT is HIS attitude toward those who are lukewarm..and unfortunately . many are lukewarm in this day…, so many in the whole earth are VOMIT in HIS MOUTH..
    The same verses tell us the problem, God’s attitude toward it , and to change.. Rev.3:13-19,
    13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
    14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
    15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
    16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
    17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
    18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
    19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    I)Our people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge,Hosea 4:6,(posted below) and punishment will surely come because God is unchanged(verse included in point 4 below), just and longsuffering .
    “Just”… as Job spoke in Job Chapter 37:23-24
    23 [Touching] the Almighty, we cannot find him out: [he is] excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
    24 Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any [that are] wise of heart.
    …. longsuffering ….as in 2 Peter 3: 9-10
    9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    Hosea Chapter 4
    5 Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
    6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

    II)people don’t wish to hear the truth..this has not changed,either..
    Jeremiah Chapter 5
    31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love [to have it] so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

    III)God forgives true repentance ..as in..
    Jonah 3: verse 4-10.., And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
    5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
    6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.
    7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:
    8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.
    9 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?
    10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

    IV) God has not changed and He welcomes us as we conform to His Will. ..as in.. Malachi Chapter 3:4-7.
    4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
    5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in [his] wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger [from his right], and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
    6 For I [am] the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
    7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept [them]. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?

    MD, this was a thought inducing post. I have enjoyed reading and the exchange.

  5. Great read and you covered it well. I would only add that the ominous potential of the petrodollar exit, which Russia discussed officially today and China has been rattling about, could be another major factor for the imminent collapse US dollar.

      Last line reads: They want to keep us divided alone racial lines so that they can better lie to and control us.

      Diversity breeds disunity which makes it a perfect tool to divide and conquer. In America there should only be one culture, American culture. Not Mexican, Irish, Scottish, African, Asian, yada yada yada. American, period. No hyphens, just plain American. The amount of melanin in a person’s skin doesn’t matter. If you claim American citizenship be American. Imagine what the people could do if everyone worked together. The government has and that’s why it pushes diversity, so we dislike, fear, mistrust and even hate one another. It’s just another psyop to turn the people against themselves.

    • That is very true ! , wherever Spanish is the national language , is a shit country , same with Africa , look at what the ancient Roman accomplished in a few hundred years , and look at Africa now , with several thousand years ………….they still have not gotten to the level of daily life the Romans had ………..just sayin ..

  9. I left a comment and have received several e-mail responses to me personally the last of which reads;
    hoagie, one problem I see with the spiritual morality of each different religion is that at least one of those religions “morality” is a complete opposite of mine. I have not, will not, teach my child to hate, lie, and murder, as one of the other “brotherhoods” does teach to hate, lie, and murder. We are now witnessing when “good is called evil, and evil is called good”.

    To this I say granted, we are living in a time when good has become bad and bad has become good. This actually started back in the early ’60 with movies and social attitudes shifting. The good guys didn’t always do good and the bad guys weren’t always doing bad. Now what I disagree with is that ANY religion, yes even Christianity can be and has been hijacked. We saw millions slaughtered in the name of spreading Christian values during the crusades, the Spanish inquisition and more recently the KKK. These are instances where in the name of Christianity, murder, torture, rape and genocide were committed. So please don’t fall victim to this good guy – bad guy stuff and understand that there is good and evil in us all. That’s the duality of man, this is the human dilemma we find ourselves subject to. We aren’t above it, we aren’t below it, we simply are part of it and everyman has sinned.

    Hi. One typo up there, entailment should be entitlement. Good Article. Feel free to delete this comment. 🙂

  11. Well, no matter who or what is at fault, the terrorists are winning. They want Western civilization to fall, and they’re getting their way. Start disrupting OUR lives via attacks and let the paranoia do the rest. Don’t care who you are, please don’t try to cram your beliefs down my throat and I will do you the same courtesy.
    It’s just good manners to begin with, and I think that’s why manners evolved over the millennia to keep the human race from becoming extinct during the years that you had to be within an arms reach to kill someone for the most part.
    I remember September 11, 2001. My son had been injured playing football and was taking him in to the hospital for an MRI on his neck. I had seen the coverage of the first plane collision with the WTC before we left when speculation was it was a terrible accident. At the waiting room, we saw the second plane hit and I felt the beginning of life as I knew it changing forever. While my son was in the MRI, a woman came running into the other room I was in screaming about the Pentagon. I knew then things were going to be different forever. And when we got back home to see the towers falling…well, it was like my past was just a dream. That was when I took out the American flag that my daddy gave me, put it up at the gate where it stayed for a full year, without fading, I might add. The American Dream is slowly dying and it’s up to us who remember it to keep it from dying.

  12. Hello again. Elizabeth, your spelling error correction brings to mind a concern/question I’ve had for some time. That is use of the term entitlements. Lately this term is being placed on some programs that might deserve it, but might not. I DO NOT KNOW, I’M ASKING…
    If a person works for 4, 5, 6 decades, PAYING INTO the Social Security fund, isn’t that money they draw from their own money that they have invested over their working years? So aren’t they entitled to it? I think they are justly entitled to it, it’s theirs.
    Now the same applies to unemployment insurance. We pay into that fund as well, now I’m not certain as to how long we can draw before we’re taking more than we gave, but one would think that it should equal out over time.

    The problem is that decades ago the federal government started using Social Security funds to pay for their runaway spending spree in DC. And after only a few short decades the Social Security funds have dwindled to almost nothing and the debt has skyrocketed. Spending is like drugs. Once an abuser starts getting high they usually can’t or don’t stop. The same is true with spending other peoples money as is the case with our elected officials in DC. We can’t spend more than we earn for too long before it destroys US from the inside. This might very well be the Achilles heel for the USA.

      I agree that folks who paid into Social Security are “entitled” to collect it when they reach the appropriate age. But we better not count on it being there. As you know, SS has turned into an unsustainable intergenerational wealth transfer Ponzi scheme.

      The SS program (and all other wealth redistribution programs) should have never been implemented. It is not the government’s role to make sure everyone is fed, clothed, housed, educated, and cared for. It sounds nice, but it ends badly. It is unaffordable, it rewards bad behavior, and it only gets bigger. These tasks of “caring for others” are best left to individuals, families, churches, charitable organizations, and other voluntary organizations. I’m sure some may think my views are harsh, but wait until the current system collapses – you will see harsh results on a massive scale.

      • Sw't tater says:

        RE: ss;It was solvent before they began stealing the funds. The definition of the word entitlements has changed over the past few years. those who worked and poured their monies into systems, which were supposed to be kept separate from the general funds should have every penny they put in with interest…
        the word entitlements has come to not mean those who deserve and earned the right to receive monies, but those who have their hands out for something -neither they or their parents earned…but (for example)it is expected they receive enough food stamps to eat steak and seafood, sandwiches and chips, soda pop.. on a as wanted basis…in contrast to someone who must earn the money to pay for those things and can have them only on a monthly basis or as a treat. The term entitlement has come to mean they are entitled to receive help even when they can find a job and pay their bills . There has been a time when I needed assistance for a short time, but I did not remain on assistance..I eventually was able to find a job, even if I had to cut grass and wash walls as a temporary.

      Social security pays it’s benefits from the social security taxes workers pay. The problem with this is that their is an imbalance between the number of retired and the number of workers. This imbalance could result in workers paying 50% or more of their gross in order to support the retired. I doubt that that will work well because no one is going to want to pay that along with taxes. The workers could be left with only 10% of their gross to live on.

      thank you Tin Lizzy!

      yes i suggest everyone read this!

      crap…seems like everyday more rights are taken away…a little bit here …a little bit there…

      crap is all i can really say right now…

  14. I agree. The declining birth rate also plays a role as does bloated entitlement programs. If able bodied citizens refuse to reproduce, then they must work. Even the socialist FDR didn’t intend for people to draw social security for 15 or 20 years.

    The illegals and the drugs they import also draws billions of dollars out of the economy, money the feds will not admit because it’s laundered out illegally.

    This is all very true! So why do Americans not do something to take this country back!! Americans sit back and do nothing because it is easier!! Failure of this country will be on ALL of us! Just watch and see!

      Did you see the Idaho governors debate last night? CBS showed parts of it. There are 4 candidates – the incumbent, another suit, a biker, and an old timer. The biker was well informed and well spoken. The old timer wanted to get back to a moral society. At the end, the suits slapped each other on the back and shook hands, ignoring the other two, confident that the people will not elect one of the others. And it’s true. We the people don’t believe one of us can lead us. Thus we are sheeple.

      • TG-Ma
        I would vote for the bike or the old man before I would vote for two suit idiots.
        Hopefully the citizens in Idaho will see the schmucks for what they are, darn, maybe not…..to many CA’s mugrumps are going to that area.

    The USA is experience a near religious movement that consists of millions of people dedicated to the destruction of our country so they can build their progressive fascist utopia. A utopia where they control a one party state and the state controls all aspects of society. This movement is pretty much the same as the Nazis, Communists and Muslims. The main difference are the words the mumble to justify the evil they do.

  17. duracles says:

    Discussion is going way off topic!

    Preparations are only half the equation. The other half is political power and the voice of the people being heard. If we just prepare for the end guess what will happen… the End. We need to stand up and voice our stance LOUDLY. Like Vietnam and recently with Syria.

    • I wonder if a smaller, liberal/progressive/socialist version of the US govt will remain for a while. They will probably reduce services, esp to conservatives, tea partiers, & constitutionalists & rural people. So I’m not sure that The End means the The End of the US govt, or just the US govt as we know it today. Human nature, being what it is, the people in power will do everything they can, to hang on to power & even increase their power, at whatever the cost.
      Stand up loudly? Do u know what happened to jews or germans who stood up loudly to the nazis?

      • And many joined the other side , then came back to be victorious liberators with either the Soviets , or the Americans and brits . Riding on top of a Sherman or T-34 , smashing bodies of dead nazis into the pavement . More than one way to do something .

    Amazing article MD. I loved reading your thoughts, especially since I was ONE of the ones, asking you to list your concerns about what you thought was headed our way, and when. You should hire me as your editor though. 🙂 I want to share this on facebook, but my leftist friends are total asses, and they’d not read past the couple dozen grammar mistakes, but focus on those, instead of your completely accurate points! Liberalism is a mental disorder, you know, lol.

    • Schametti
      “You should hire me as your editor though”

      Why? What did I spell wrong this time?

    • Schametti
      You made me laugh with your remark about “Liberalism being a metal disorder”. We have one family member who keeps marrying them.

    Best writing you ever done MD! Bctruck well said about church, I’m with you. To dig a little deeper Look at Obama care or ACA . This is the new police department. They will control our life soon enough. The Militarized Police will be their enforcers. We are no longer unique individuals but must work to all be the same. Along the same path China is on today. The medical profession is obligated to report us. We live in debt and will fear losing our jobs so we will do as told. Like the old song says, “I owe my soul to the company store”. It is the government store now. Lots of mentally ill people being killed by police lately, I can look out my window as I write this at a spot where a ill homeless man was camping and was killed by police, I’m sure everyone has seen the video. Next step will be mental facilities for these ill people. Because we must take care of them and we all can agree on that. Oh but remember you are only one wrong answer to your doctor away from being diagnosed as mentally ill. Now on to to global warming and if you haven’t figured out the answer to global warming your not thinking. We do everything cleaner and with less impact on the environment than ever in history. But there are so many more of us. The population of the US has doubled in my lifetime. Ms Clinton was at a summit in South Africa in 92 and they agreed on huge population reductions at that time. What stopped it? WW11 vets. The power as a voting block of the WW11 vets and how that power has kept things slow and low as the government changes and adapts it’s evil ways upon us. Now most of the WW11 vets have passed on and we will see changes at a rapid speed. to sum it up the bottom line is, your must remain deeply in debt as slave to the banks, your freedom of speech will get you committed during a visit to your Dr. to an new and modern asylum and a few billion people need to quickly die. MD, I wish I could write as good as you. You did a wonderful job on this. Thanks.
