We have passed the tipping point; we are on the downslope toward a financial collapse and there is nothing the United States of America can do to stop our economic demise. Our government has become a “country club” of career politicians; all self-indulgent, self-centered, impotent legislators and criminals seeking privilege. I think this is a fitting description of our Congress and our President, a puppet of unknown origin. Or, in other words, they got us into this financial mess by constantly seeking to line their own pockets and seeking favors to promote their careers [careerism].
If any worthwhile government acts happened it would be only by a coincidence to some other purely personal act. To those in Congress who think I have unfairly degraded you; my response is simply: I can’t remember hearing your voice to correct the problems that have brought us to this point. Would you show some self-respect and speak up and loud enough for us to hear you back here in your District? Mine happens to be Georgia. Prove that you are in Congress for the good of the nation and to enforce the Constitution.
So, I anticipate no help or rescue from the politically corrupt career politicians (Have you watched TV?) to solve our collapsing economy and energy shortages to come or restoring our manufacturing jobs now mostly located in foreign countries. It is unfortunate but my analysis of the situation, the players, and the coming worldwide tragedy foretells there is but one solution, only one if the United States is to survive as a nation.
The solution centers around two factors, oil [energy] and gold [money]. Who controls the available oil for the next 50 years and with what currency will the world commerce trade?
Remember, this is a total world (all nations) involvement, not just super powers but all nations. Advancing technology requires natural resources, not just oil, but many minerals and metals which are dispersed at random around the world. These elements are the foundations of our future and must be part of our recovery from the coming collapse if we are to have a future outside of the Israeli-New World Order scam.
Also, the Third World is cheap labor, and in our emergence, the early reconstruction will require massive amounts of human labor; guess who and where that might come from.
As we approach a possible total economic collapse of the “Big Banks”, the energy resources become ever more critical because the world moves on oil and will for the foreseeable future. It is one of the two all-important factors; who has it and /or who controls it. We are viewing the oil on the market today, not some future alternate unproven substitute. The oil I can get now and process now, to supply all the energy needed to turn the world around from collapse; this should be obvious.
How will oil be supplied universally or equitably is the basis for the solution that is required to turn the collapse around and start a recovery; certainly not by military dominance or perpetual war.
It won’t on a voluntary basis; the human race is just not that intelligent. The solution will require a multi-nation cartel aligned to an overall cooperation to use the oil available to stabilize all the world economies as far as possible. Do I believe this will be worked out by a mutual cooperative administrative group of oil-rich nations and military super powers? NO. But oil must be controlled as the primary energy source for the USA and the world to have a future. That is if we don’t blow the world up fighting with nuclear bombs.
I am sorry but the scenario for control of oil will get ugly. We have a total failure of our Department of State and our foreign policy. We rely on a military solution which is not much if any better. I am condemning the leadership; not the troops, who I hold in the highest esteem. The whole of the military suffers from the lack of intelligent leaders and their failed strategies as approved by the White House.
Why do I say it will get ugly? Several reasons: oil location, governments in control, and the “Manifest Destiny” psychology of world leaders and especially Israel.
Now the Zionists Israeli government is maneuvering the US to attack Iran and destroy their one serious opposition to control of the Middle East. This will happen when our military strategist can be assured of a one-front war. However, with the recent financial collapse of the dollar as a world currency and the developing reemergence of Russia as a world power with substantial oil reserves, our military must be contemplating to use their “one strike does it all” (my name for it) attack for our total dominance of the Middle East.
It is not too late to develop a cooperative solution among nations, but time is short, and the politicians must become leaders bent on a peaceful solution which doesn’t appear to be a Trump acceptable solution. God help all those native to the mid-east if a solution is not found. I am afraid the price for oil will be counted in human lives as well as money.
And because paper monies, credits, funds, etc. have been managed but not controlled and audited; all of these financial instruments are now suspect. A new “world currency” must be developed, of course, it will be paper, it and other instruments of credit and transactions will be standardized and centrally controlled, maybe a better term is recorded.
There will be a local need for countries for script money issued by local banks, and this should be limited as to amount by the performance and display of a country’s responsibility to comply with the articles of cooperation to be developed by a World Bank organization. (Not with the current World Bank or International Monetary Fund of dubious integrity.) Amounts of currency in circulation will be dependent on a ratio to the value of gold and oil, which will be set in cooperation with central governmental banks.
I know it is not all this simple, but it is a necessity if we are to survive.
I know that oil and gold are not evenly distributed in the world; I know each and every nation has particular problems (an impossible list of problems) from lack of unity, over-population, food, water, disease, etc.
I am not a “one world” activist, not a socialist; I am a human being, educated and experienced. I know we inhabit this earth and this is a temporary proposition and by failure to act could be very painful and very short. I have observed the worst of life, ravishes of war and poverty and the best of life; and I am a rich man with life experiences and family, not excessive material wealth but great personal health.
I think we should note that it is not the families of the oil moguls or of this administration who will die, but it is the young Americans who fight our wars because there are no jobs resulting from the gross mismanagement of this nation.
The physical features of the earth are just that, some are kind to the inhabitants and others not, but it is the people who make our existence what it is and what it can be. It is unfortunate we are what we are as to our perception of inferior and superior to each other, which causes most of our aggressions. This nation, as many before it, will historically be just another page of history, as thousands of years and many nations succeed only to fail, usually with the loss of many, many lives; this drama has repeated itself over and over again. But just this once, never before or since duplicated, a collective effort to govern of the people, by the people, and for the people.
However, we blew it; we have allowed a “government” to replace us, we, the common man God made so many of. Of course, it is our government but not of, by, or for us anymore. The common ones have become self-indulgent, uninspired, and dependent followers of poor education, a corrupt, expanding and expensive government, a subverted election process, mass media, etc. It can be said we allowed the elite to organize society and government for their benefit, while we, the common man frittered away our command and responsibility of our government.
As we approach that time when possibly this nation enters the history books as a failure, we can’t help but think just how good it could have been if we, the common man, the work-a-day man for a wage, the nurse, school teacher, truck driver, waitress; all of us had made the decision to take command of our government. There is so little time left! We are in the midst of a Presidential term with someone who is not qualified to be our leader.
The Congress is no better, a more corrupt group of self-centered, career ignominious characters, a collection of such do-nothings than can’t be found anywhere else in the world. But it is ok; send them all back to Washington. Their work of destroying this nation is not complete. Do term limits and balanced budgets begin to sound better?
You have allowed others to do your thinking for you, many believe that we will pay a terrible price for this. I was once routinely interviewed by a team from the Counter Terror Secret Service because I objected to an action of the IRS. I was asked the first question: “Do you consider yourself to be a threat to this government?” My answer was a firm “Yes”; the agents looked surprised and took a step back. I explained, “Yes, I vote”. You could see the agents take a deep breath to relax. The rest of the interview was about my military and CIA experiences. They thanked me with further explanation that the interview was routine and they understood my IRS problem from their own experience.
The latest news is of more wars, more civilian deaths (collateral damage), oil supplies uncertain, food shortages, and the US dollar ably described by Clark Howard as “not worth a squat” thanks to our government mismanagement.
I have not lost sight of the threat of a terrorist attack, from my experience with insurgency warfare years ago, this nation is wide open and the only thing protecting you is that they have not decided where, when and how to attack. They, the terrorist, are your only protection, their indecision; don’t you forget it.
If we fail to change the direction this nation is headed, we stand to lose and your inactivity at this time will assure the collapse of this nation; no one can be excused from participation.
