The coming Economic Collapse: How you can Prepare to Survive the Chaos
There’s been a lot of talk lately about the government shutdown and the possible default on our nation’s debt. While many people in this country remain blissfully oblivious to the actual problems, the fact is, this country has been teetering on the edge of disaster for quite some time.
While I 100% believe this whole shutdown crisis is nothing but political theater, we still face some very real problems that no one is talking about. Our country sits at almost 17 trillion dollars in debt, and instead of trying to address the problem, we have a government who insists that raising the debt limit is our only way out.
Whether or not the debt ceiling is raised really isn’t the point. In my opinion, this country is on an unsustainable course and it’s only a matter of time before the whole system comes to a grinding halt.
Are we facing another Great Depression?
When I look at our current situation, I actually think comparisons to the Great Depression are a little optimistic. Yes, things were bad during the Great Depression; but today, we have far more problems facing this country, problems that could make the Great Depression look like a walk in the park.
Why is today’s crisis worse than the Great Depression?
From the outside looking in, it might actually be pretty hard to believe this country is in any sort of financial trouble, let alone facing the possibility of an economic collapse. In fact, when you see hundreds of thousands of people lining up in front of Apple Stores to buy the newest iPhone, you might actually think we have a robust economy.
But if you look a little deeper, and ignore the government/media propaganda, you’ll realize you’re witnessing one big illusion – better yet, the biggest Ponzi Scheme of all time.
The only reason this whole system hasn’t collapsed, is because of the 17 trillion dollars in debt this governments rung up. If it wasn’t for the debt, combined with the Federal Reserve who’s flooding the market with funny money, by running the printing presses 24/7, this country would look a whole lot different.
Instead of the bread lines of the 1920’s, we now have 47 million people on food stamps and half the country counting on at least one government program to pay their bills.
From bank bailouts and corporate welfare, to a never-ending supply of unemployment checks and government assistance, this country only looks healthy because the government is doing everything they can to maintain the scam. Unfortunately, just like every Ponzi scheme, there comes a time when you just can’t maintain the scam any longer and the whole illusion starts to breakdown.
