Now for a small history lesson. I know, I know but I'll try and make it as interesting as possible. When the Germans entered into Austria in March 1938, they had brokered a deal with the Austrian leadership to basically state that Germany would get Austria out of it's crippling financial crisis. At first, they did just that. There was suddenly food for everyone, jobs were plentiful, and things seemed like they would be ok. In reality, of course, things were far from ok. The illusion created when the Nazis took over would soon crumble. Over a period of 4 years, the people of Austria were being slowly usurped into what amounted to slavery. First to go were the guns. They were told at first just to register them (New York State 2013) because of the existence of crime. Then they were told because crime was still such a problem, they needed to just turn in their firearms. Many dutifully complied. This allowed the Nazis to further their true agenda which was total domination of the people. One particularly interesting thing they did was to ration food. Can you guess how people had to obtain their food? FOOD STAMPS issued by the government. There are now over 46 MILLION people on food stamps in the US... Do you see a pattern yet?
Let's take a look at our consumer goods. Pick up anything in your house, and look to see where it is made. I can tell you without even looking. China. What does this have to do with what I'm talking about? Simple. China owns an estimated $1.16 trillion of our debt, i.e. treasury bonds. Our country basically has borrowed enormous amounts of money from China, and other countries as well. A major problem with this as I see it, is that China, after the Newtown shooting, expressed their opinion that Obama needs to "wage war on the second amendment". There is a simple reason they feel they have the, let's say "authority" to do this. There is some speculation that China wants US assets instead of money to pay back our debt.Think that can't happen? Our govt. is printing money at an exponential rate with NO BACKING. In other words, it's not worth the paper it's printed on. The dollar is devaluing more and more, which every country on the planet can see. Why would China want useless currency back? they wouldn't. Here's another little tidbit to chew on. Where have most of our jobs gone from the manufacturing sector? If you said China, you'd be the grand prize winner. They don't want the population armed because they know when we find out they are setting roots in our country, many will want to fight it. There is also much talk of China acquiring US oil fields. If this is indeed the case, someone please explain to me why we aren't using that oil ourselves instead of importing from the middle east? Why? Because it would bring down gas prices, that's why. You're probably like "that makes no sense". It makes perfect sense. Big oil is a big lobby in Washington, and a major contributor to BOTH parties, Republican and Democrat.Less profits=less money fot the oil companies=less money for the politicians. Germany recently asked the US to give back 1500+ tons of gold that is held in NY. The govt. said "well, in about 7 years, you should have it all back". The excuse was the US did not want Germany to cause some huge rift in the gold market, or some nonsense like that. I believe the fact of the matter is we DON'T HAVE IT. Germany wanted to see it, and were told no. Why would the US do that if they had nothing to hide?
I firmly believe there is a plan to bankrupt this great republic.There are too many things that are financially draining us, and we cannot sustain much longer. We have politicians who get 200+ thousand a year, FOR LIFE. Free healthcare FOR LIFE. The welfare population is steadily growing partly because there are some who are just itching to have the govt. take care of them, while others simply can't find adequate employment.Taxes keep going up, food bills, gas, utilities... All of these things that are burdening the average family leaves little doubt that the elites are actively trying to ruin this country, and Im afraid they are succeeding.There is absolutely NO REASON at all that parents who work shouldn't be able to take care of their families. Even many who went to college are either underemployed, or simply unemployed. Can we fix this? I really don't have the answer for that. I do know that you need to look out for you and yours, and keep your heads down. Things are going to get ugly I'm afraid, and the people that many see as our "protectors" are the very same people that caused the problem. I could go on for HOURS about this, but I'll close by saying we are Americans. We built this country with guts, honor, integrity and spirit. If we could just harness that energy again, we may just have a chance. After all, what's the alternative? Our children being slaves to a communist system which will destroy any sense of individualism that is left. The financial pieces are only a little bit of this huge puzzle, but make no mistake, it is a GIGANTIC little piece. I must admit, I've been so busy worrying about the second amendment fight, that I completely failed to look at this one, and it's right in our face.
