Well, turns out...alot. You see, the government is on very thin ice regarding their handling of that big pile of money we hand them every year through taxation, social security, and whatever other means they have of sucking the life blood out of our veins. Thin ice, meaning...shaky legal ground. In a real court of law with a judge who was not bought and paid for, we could sue the government for taking our money and pretty much squandering it.
When this house of cards falls, like very soon...when we topple over the fiscal cliff with no parachute...then it might not be so easy to get the people to hand that money over...that is...if they have guns.
This is not a great time for our country. My only suggestion is that people refuse to be divided by issues on which intelligent people can certainly disagree. Gun control is yet another hot button issue to distract us from what is now becoming increasingly obvious to even the casual observer.
I certainly wouldn't dream of harming a government employee (minion...doing the will of our now rogue government) when they come to collect money I don't have, or take my IRA and put it into worthless US Bonds, or some other government sanctioned "investment." They are, after all, just following orders, trying to put food on the table...or provide an education for their children so they, too, can become government minions, and put food on their own table someday.
But the guys in charge know very well that there are lots of people out there who are ready to fight when this thing blows and the government comes after every penny they can get their greedy little hands on. I am not one of them. Let them have it. I'm sure they'll squander that too, and soon they'll be nor more life blood for them to suck out of our poor depleted veins.
I owe this thought to a 4 minute chat by Catherine Austin Fitts, one of the most substantial human beings on the planet. Her website is solari.com, but if this link works, you can hear her very calm and reasoned assessment of the current situation. She worked for the government under Clinton, and she is one shinging light.
