Why Doomers are Optimist
We have been marching steadily towards the final collapse for years now. The first movements towards what we find ourselves in today started centuries ago with political skirmishes that gave the Federal government more and more power with each step.
There have been major leaps that brought us much closer to this end game from time to time. The civil war, universal suffrage, creation of the Federal Reserve, Roe v. Wade, Affirmative Action, Wickard v. Filburn and most recently this latest SCOTUS ruling over Gay Marriage.
Not that I care who buggers who mind you, that really isn't the point nor where the damage has been done. Perhaps in the scheme of things it isn't overall as damaging a ruling as others but it's just another straw added to the camel's back and there isn't much more weight it can take.
The Federal government is totally invested in a course of action that will outwardly harm a very large segment of the citizen's it is suppose to protect. The very nature of the beast and the paths it has followed for centuries has left it no other choice. On a National level there is nothing that can be done at this time to change the path it is on to any great degree. This is why so many feel voting is pointless because it is. No matter how well intentioned a candidate maybe when they get to the Federal Level and see the problem for what it really is they understand they have two choices...
Let the entire thing fall apart now or continue to place it's faith in unicorns and rainbows and hope for an outcome that ignores reality.
This is why immigration, legal or illegal, totally open borders, complete surrender to any and every special interest group and the erosion of individual rights will never end at the Federal Level. It cannot if they have any hope of meeting the fiscal promises it has made. Where their reasoning is flawed however is that they fail to acknowledge that they are changing what they think they are saving to the point they are saving nothing.
It's a game that can never be won. They need what America was as much as they need what they are bringing in and at some point when the balance tips too far they lose one of the parts they need. There is no other outcome possible.
As I pointed out years ago eventually the more rural states and areas will either be forced to declare for themselves. Either as independent or in ways that protect their interests as a delaying action at first. We have seen this over and over already as States pass legislation pertaining to firearms, freedom of speech and now religion over and over. Eventually these moves will be shot down by Federal courts but the sentiment is already there and that will just force the next step.
As we near the end of this tragi-comedy I see three logical conclusions. None of them are particularly attractive mind you but I find myself musing that in this case the theory of a financial collapse and all that it brings is perhaps the brightest future we can hope for.
Certainly a civil war at this time would be more terrible than anything else except maybe a complete fall into a total police state intent on removing us and all our history from the face of the planet.
The fact is a financial collapse and the subsequent loss of Federal power it would bring is about our only chance at survival without a real fight at this point.
On reason I am hoping for that more than the alternatives.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
