We understand the expansion of the security industrial complex, the growing nature of the police state.
Billions of rounds of ammo, armored vehicles, fusion centers, drones being put in the air – there is no question of police state expansion. The only question is why. Why are they doing it?
You can’t go to government for this answer, because if you do they’re just going to stone-wall the question. They don’t even believe you deserve a shoddy lie.
But if we use our heads and we look at real information, real data, the reason is self evident.
The fact is, the trajectory of our economy has been set for quite some time.
The U.S. Census Bureau says we have 146 million people either living in poverty or in a low income situation… 29.2% of the children in this country face food insecurities every single night… And over 20 million people in the United States are spending over half what they make to pay for housing alone…
We don’t see these millions of people in the streets right now.
Because we have social safety nets. Social safety nets that are promised to be yanked away. They’re warning us right now…
Understand where we’re headed…
Prepare for what is coming…
They’re not buying the ammunition… they’re not expanding the police state because they’re worried about terrorism.
They’re worried about incidents such as happened in Egypt and Tunisia.
When the people of this country have nothing, and the little bit that they do have, the little bit that they do earn, is going to pay for basic necessity items such as housing and food… they [will] take to the streets.
This is what I believe the government anticipates and I do believe this is what’s going to happen.
We are rapidly approaching a situation in this country where the majority of Americans will not be able to acquire the basic necessities for life. With tens of millions of people unemployed, living in poverty and struggling just to make ends meet, it’s a wonder that the system hasn’t already collapsed in on itself.
Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve is relentlessly expanding our monetary base while the US government borrows unfathomable amounts of money just to stay afloat and maintain a perception of stability. This has led to significant price increases in the things Americans need to survive – food, medicine and energy.
We will soon reach a point where government will be left with no choice but to make drastic cutbacks to these essential services, leaving all those who depend on that monthly check with absolutely nowhere to turn. These cuts may come in the form of actual lowered distribution amount, or in the form of inadequate adjustments for inflation.
When those who are already struggling just to get by no longer have the social support or sufficient wage to acquire critical goods and services, really bad things are going to happen.
They’re going to take to the streets in droves, and you can be assured that the government will not be benevolent in how they’re dealt with.
We can pretend everything’s alright and that the government isn’t taking steps to maintain control at any cost, but it won’t change the outcome.
