This fall, many people anticipated major financial and geopolitical catastrophe and for good reasons. Our future is in grave danger, and sadly most people are complacent in dealing with the facts. In the Bible, Noah warned the people of the coming rain and the floodwaters it would produce, because it had never rained so much before. It had never gotten that bad. Most people do not believe, because it's never gotten as bad as it will.
In America we have been told that we are exceptional and bad things happen in other countries like Iraq or Syria. That's why America can be engaged in a fourteen-year war, as we are now, and most Americans don't even think about it often enough to care.
Yes, America was exceptional when we won our independence. However, those who seek to divide us knew that was because we did not have rigid class distinctions, and someone could literally go from poverty to riches by hard work. And we had a strong industrial complex, and we produced products the entire world needed, but trade deals like NAFTA and the TPP have ensured that our manufacturing complex is a memory of the past... to the point where only 62.6% of American workers are working today... Lastly we have vast natural resources that other countries crave, but government bureaucracies like the EPA and other quasi earth worshipping special interest groups fight tooth and nail to prevent us from using what the Almighty has blessed our country with.
Because of these things, we can look at history and observe currently that each of these three things that make America exceptional are being or have been torn down.
According to a 2014 report, "During the last 5 years, real median household income has declined nearly 9%, from $54,489 at the end of 2007, to $50,020 at the beginning of 2012. That was the most precipitous plunge on record, with a greater fall after the recession ended than before, which is unprecedented in American history."
Also, "Over the last five years, the number in poverty has increased by nearly 31%, to 49.7 million, with the poverty rate climbing over 30% to 16.1%. Obama has also been the food stamp President, with the number on food stamps increasing during his Administration to an all-time record high of 47.7 million, up 80% over the past five years."
Has it ever been harder to go from poor to rich in America?
Turn off the nightly news and realize that the fundamentals of our economy are teetering on economic collapse, and the only thing keeping it going is spit, glue, and tape. Interest rates have not gone up since 2006. The government cannot raise rates by 0.25%. Think about the interest you pay on your mortgage, car loan, or credit cards, and think about how new loans would be impacted if rates go up. It will cost more to borrow money. When the government tells you rates are not going up, they are saying bad things will happen if they do go up.
America has not had a balanced budget since 2002. Obama has not had one budget balanced in his tenure. Any CEO who could not balance his company's budget would be laughed out of his job, and be deemed a failure. Obama is the most prominent failure we have witnessed in our lifetimes. The fact is that the budget cannot be balanced, and liberal pipe dreams like Obamacare are a fantasy that will not work. The only way it's been sustainable thus far is the government's ability to print endless money. Obamacare is about collapsing America.
And what happened this week? Republicans bowed to tyrannical Obama and gave him all the money he wants to spend through the end of his Administration. Thinking there is any difference in Republicans and Democrats is a myth. Name a Republican President in the last 50 years who has decreased the size and scope of the government. Politicians want more government. It's job security. It's like having a janitorial service, and the way you get business is by going around and urinating all over restrooms. You have the solution. Hire me to clean it up.
So why are we looking forward to the Economic Collapse?
We have a thirst for integrity and justice. The wealth that we have witnessed being sucked out of our country is heart wrenching. There is no way to fix our problems without a reset. The suffering will be unfathomable for most people, and dealing with the inevitable sooner rather than later is ideal. We believe there will be tremendous opportunities during the rebuilding process, and we have prepared our clients to the best of our ability for what will happen.
Yes, nobody knows for sure how things will happen. As the Scripture states, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."
