Yesterday, my colleague, Marty Biancuzzo, explained why America is on a path to inevitable economic and government collapse.
After reading Marty’s piece, another colleague asked me: What will America look like after a government collapse?
It’s an important question, and I want to give a satisfactory answer. But I can’t do that in one short column, so I plan to return to this topic several times over the next few weeks. I hope that when I’m done, you will have a better understanding of where the country is headed.
Now, consider our current situation…
It’s clear that Barack Obama and Congress have no plan to get the dead-in-the-water economy moving. In fact, they appear to be completely incompetent.
Too many Americans are jobless, an excessive number of Americans are dependent on government handouts to eat, and the countless Americans who could contribute to the economic recovery are frozen in place, unwilling to take risks due to an uncertain regulatory environment.
Now, it’s fashionable in some governmental circles to argue that another Great Depression could never happen. Politicians reason that America at present has far more tools to prevent such a cataclysm.
They believe that “things are different this time.” If only they knew how right they were.
It Is Different This Time… It’s Worse
