|The Last Piece of the Puzzle|
Now that this last piece of the puzzle has been laid, the U.S. economy will collapse under it's own weight.
My friends, "reality" has now come to a point where we will all have to deal with it, it can no longer be ignored, it can no longer be something coming down the pike, or something expected in the distant future, reality is here and it is now in real time. As I've written a number of times in previous posts; "Reality is not an inherently dangerous concept, but it can be extremely cruel if not recognized for what it is."
Here is the reality: Our nation, under the leadership of the present administration has tipped the proverbial scales of national destruction and tipped them past the point of no return. Once the point of no return is reached, the nation and it's people will be forced to complete the entire trip. Allow me to explain:
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, (I hope you're sitting down)! 108,592,000 (that is 108 million, five hundred ninety-two thousand) are "means-tested" recipients of government benefits. Broken down: 82,457,000 people receive Medicaid. 49,373,000 receive Food Stamps. 20,223,000 receive Supplemental Security Income. There are 23,228,000 receiving benefits from the Women's, Infants and Children's program. 13,433,000 people in government subsidized housing programs. 5,098,000 in the temporary needy people and families program. Okay, we've determined those numbers to all be in the millions of people, and they add up to the original number of 108,592,000 give or take a couple of hundred people at any given time. The United States has a population of just over 300,000,000, the exact number cannot be determined, as our government has no realistic idea of who was, is, or may be in this country. Either way, a number approaching or surpassing 1/3 (one third) of the population is receiving some type of government assistance. Now here is the shocker: According to the Census of 2011, the number of full-time workers/tax-payers in this country is approximately 101,716,000. The basic math tells me that our nation now has more receivers than supporters, 6,876,000 less. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is a substantial number.
Some people ask me; what does "means tested" mean? A simple way to put it is by example, so allow me to try. You are a family of four (4), you take your family to a nice restaurant order a pretty fine meal, so far so good? The management comes to your table, with the check, on the check are charges for two (2) family of four meals. You question the bill, and here comes the explanation: "Sir, the manager has determined that you are a family of higher means (income) than another family of four eating right over there. That family sir, has less income than you apparently, or at least that is what they've related to us. We are not allowed to question them because inquiry of their income would be offensive. As a result, we did a "means test" and determined that you will be required to pay not only for your family, but you will have to pay for that family also. We, the management have taken the liberty to add both server gratuities on you check. Thanks for dining with us, come back again real soon. "That is how "means testing" works. Simply substitute the word "management" with the word "government". Basically it is redistribution of wealth, yours!!! Welcome to Socialism/Communism/Progressivism at it's finest. For those who voted for Barack Hussein Obama, especially the second time, may I strongly suggest Harri-Kari.
There is no question that the demise of the U.S. has been in the planning stages since it's inception. Now, all that Socialist planning and scheming has come to it's full fruition. The long understood way to destroy a country financially among Socialists and Communists has been to find ways to overload the system. Today, under Barack Obama's diabolical eye, they have accomplished just that. The day our nation supports more entitlements without enough income to pay for those entitlements is the day the "death spiral" began. We are now a nation with $17 trillion of real debt and looking to borrow even more, we already have $90 trillion in unfunded liabilities for our grand children and great grand children to shoulder, how can this be sustained? (Hence, the last piece of the puzzle, all the Socialists/Communists have to do is wait for the collapse.) The truth is, it cannot be sustained. At the end of America's death spiral will be a crash of, (dare I say it?) , Biblical proportions. In essence, and at best the United States of America will be a mere shell of what we used to be. The biggest culprit "APATHY".
So what will become of us? Logically, the all giving, all knowing government will be forced to cut costs, desperate times will result in desperate measures. First there will larger cuts to the nation's defense budget and of course defenses. The government, in a last ditch effort will print billions in worthless paper money that will result in inflation not seen since the Weimar Republic. Then the cessation farm subsidies. Then the government will cease to buy from the private sector, which in turn will force more and more people toward unemployment compensation. Stores will have food shortages, but the entitlements to this administration's pet lobbies will be the last on the chopping block. People will be hungry, there will be less and less jobs, gasoline and energy costs will go through the roof. There will be uprisings in the streets of this once great nation, there will be blood spilled. This is the reality of Socialism and Communism. Eventually government entitlements will be brutally curtailed most will be halted completely. Because of the earlier cuts to law enforcement, violence will be everywhere, desperate people will do desperate things.
I strongly urge preparation for what is inevitable, and it is inevitable. People will need to turn back to God, as prayer from a penitent and repented nation is the only way to regain the blessings the Lord once bestowed upon us. At the same time, stocking up on bullets and bottled water should be at the top of the to-do list. You will, more than likely need both of those items.
Because we have traveled beyond the point of no return, our nation must experience it's own death.
All may not be lost however, because we, for the most part are still Americans, and we are resilient. So, although America, such as it was, will be no more, when the spiral ends, and the dust settles, and if other country's haven't already divided up the spoils of our fallen nation, we can, and we will rebuild. God willing!
