“The debt limits have to come down. The whole world of debt has to be changed as far as this country is concerned. We have to create jobs and we have to create them rapidly because if we don’t things are just going to head in a direction that’s going to be almost impossible to recover from.” Donald Trump
An idea was presented and followed through upon, “what if we break from tradition and put someone in as president that has no real political background. Someone fresh, new and someone who will both divide the country further as well as galvanize others.” The follow through occurred and Trump was elected, The problems that plague this country still remain, our debt to income level is so high as a nation that if we were people they would have hung us decades ago. We have more troops abroad than any other nation and spend easily 4 times what others do for this policing, but at what cost and benefit? Our prison system turns out more hardened criminals daily than it takes in and it is several times larger than China, Russia, and Great Britain combined. The majority of these people having gone in for extended sentences for smoking or possessing a plant, not a violent legitimate crime.
Regardless your religious or moral background what I have gathered and seen time and again on this site is that pack members are staunchly freedom orientated. The unfortunate but very real side effect of this desire for freedom is that we are morally obligated to allow others to do what they will with their own bodies as long as their actions are not forced upon us. I am not writing this article to present anything other than the simple facts. PTSD is a well-known disease that afflicts tens of millions of people, possibly hundreds of millions.
The cause is clear, the human mind and body has been forced or coerced into doing something or seeing something it cannot handle and has shut down parts of memory causing lapses in memory and sometimes in severe cases extreme behaviorisms. It has affected humanity since humanity was born on this planet. However, we see easily 20 times the amount of soldiers today coming home suffering from it. Has anyone stopped to question why? Maybe what we are doing is immoral and maybe, just maybe we need to “water the tree of liberty with a bit of politicians blood” to paraphrase loosely what Jefferson so eloquently stated.
Of course, my even suggesting this flies in the face of everything we have all been taught since birth, obey authority, cops are good, vote more, don’t think about using violence to break away…vote again! Let me ask a simple question? Has voting ever really worked to benefit everyone? (the simple answer is NO) Voting only legitimizes the governments positions, because it means people not even close to the majority as we witnessed this last election, still, support the evil crap our political masters continue to do.
If this were a true republic or democracy, the mere fact that so many simply did not participate means one thing, most people DO NOT WANT to be governed by loud mouthed, bigots and child molesters in suits. (I know as far as we know Trump has never molested a child.) But how many others have, and have had it proven with the leaked emails and more?
Folks, my only take away as honestly, yours should be, is this. Don’t stop prepping, this nation is done for, we passed the tipping point over a decade ago, and all we have now are the dying gasps of a prematurely aged, bloated carcass as it tumbles sloppily into the same abyss that Greece, Rome, Persia and every other major power did before it. We the few who think ahead have to be prepared! It is up to us to ensure others see the simplicity of reality. As frightening as it may be. Our economy is killing us, and honestly, if you cannot see that…maybe you are not a prepper?
Just my thoughts, in no way, do these represent anyone of you nor am I trying too, I am simply expressing a view I have held close but find I cannot any longer. As always,
free the mind and the body will follow
