I have been coming across more and more articles written about those who expatriate (leave the country), or the concept of expatriation – written by either expat’s themselves or by those who apparently long to expatriate from the United States (for sociopolitical reasons).
In the context of leaving the United States due to the quagmire we’re in – and while the notion of moving to a (better?) country or place may seem inviting for some, I generally disagree with the notion. Here’s why…
The following video clip of Rick Santelli (an editor for the CNBC Business News network) is telling in that he slams America’s ‘Debt-Is-Wealth’ mentality during a mainstream segment on CNBC. Sounds like someone is catching on…
Tyler Durden of zerohedge.com also said that in American society, ‘debt’ and ‘income’ have become increasingly synonymous over the past 3 decades; but as Rick Santelli blasts (commonsensically), “they certainly shouldn’t be.” It appears the average joe has been led to this conclusion by the Central Banks.
Rhetorically asking “where’s the horsepower in the economy coming from?” Santelli reflects on the auto-loan fears and notes that 55% of used cars (and 30% of new cars) are financed by subprime lenders… and rages, “if we continue as a country to fuel our consumerism with debt…” and “Until we start to get the income equation moving, the central banks can’t do enough. ultimately, end game, can’t fuel an economy on debt.”
They are letting this happen on purpose.
Massive fraud has been keeping the system propped up since “the party over moment” of the 2008 financial meltdown.
“It is so evident, the amount of fraud across the board is epic…we have never seen anything like this before.”
“It wasn’t this bad during the credit derivative bubble that devastated the global economy, and it has gotten worse.”
“Their goal is to prop things up, and they don’t care what reality is. Forget about the last credit derivative bubble, it is much, much worse now. This is distortion being created by the world’s central banks on purpose. That one metric is allowing fraud to bleed across every asset class.”
This is how we know that we are at the very, very end of this entire thing…
When slow and steady change happens in your life, slowly but surely, you don’t really notice the aggregate of the change so much while you adapt to it over the span of time.
This is why when we reflect back on how it used to be (“back in the day”), it often seems so radically different than it is today. When we look back, we see some of the huge changes that have taken place – and we wonder how and why it has changed so much. The thing is, much of the change is disguised in increments, be it good or bad.
One such change has been taking place right under our noses, and I call it,
“The Great Divide”
Trends forecaster Gerald Celente of TrendsJournal.com predicts that we may see economic collapse by the end of 2nd-quarter 2014 (by month end, June).
While even Celente admits that he (and we) don’t know what other tricks are up the sleeve of the FED (are there any left?), he sees a coming impending collapse.
We recently asked you a question regarding the mainstream news media: truth or…?, which is timely regarding a new poll surveying young Americans’ political attitudes, which found millennials have less trust in government than ever before.
Among all of the categories polled, the media came in dead last at 11%.
While Russia does what the US has always done with regards to their threatened national interests (e.g. the petrodollar, oil-gas), the situation in Ukraine is ratcheting up as the West continues escalating sanctions against Russia who is responding with their own ‘tit-for-tat’ moves and counter-moves, a very dangerous game being played by world super powers.
Ukraine has been in the news for weeks and weeks as the metaphorical snowflakes have been piling up on the slopes. The question is, when will the slope suddenly and violently give way into a roaring avalanche? And if it does, are you prepared for the consequences?
