I do see not in the far off future a type of uprising or revolution in our country where there will be many people killed. It is now happening in many other countries and I don't see us being any different. We are no longer the greatest country in the world and have become ripe for the picking!
Well bud I doubt everybody on our forum here is on their death bed,I'd bet that the life as we know it will change drastically in just a few short years... and when it happens it might not be the end of civilization,but it will be the end of civilized civilization. Its happening as we speak, the game board is set and the players are taking their seats at the table. Trillions of dollars are being printed out of thin air,backed by nothing,literally the only way to pay the debt back is to wait for the dollar to hyper inflate (which is bound to happen) and pay it back with the inflated money. Its common sense,if an individual spends more money than he has and continues to do so eventually he will force himself into bankruptcy, same thing with companies... nothing different about a government. Its happened to plenty of them,and the U.S. is weelllll on its way. Once the dollar collapses,the economy will flatline... the government will probably cling to life for a bit in some capacity,but we will all be living very different lives. That's a bit of a worst case scenario,best case when it happens we can hold it together and wade through it in the midst of another great depression. Either way I don't see anything but harsh times around he corner. Even the govt knows its about to happen,fema took possession of millions of mre's not to long ago,reports of officails wanting lists of cannery customers,their attempts at demonizing survivalists and preppers or anybody that has more than a weeks worth of food at theur house,accusing people who stockpile weapons abd ammo of potential terrorism, and now this national defense act. The governments been heading this direction for years,if not decades,they know they can't stop it... so they prepare for it just like some of us do,and pump the brakes on the collapse the best they can until its convenient for them.
Its coming,in one fashion or the next... And its not far off brother.
