Information Overload, So Get Ready
The one thing I have noticed while looking over the “Revised Stimulus Bill”, is that there is so much to look at. They are using a tactic that is used a lot in politics, “Information Overload”. The Bush administration did it with scandals and the removal of the rights of the people. The Obama administration has so many things that are wrong with this Stimulus Package and other bills they are pushing, if they bombard you all at once you will miss most of it.
As you know, I have been trying to point out the scary proposal of the Healthcare and the Infrastructure parts of the Bill. However, there are more than just those two. Please lookup the Depression of 1920, not to be confused with the “Crash of 1929” which last, one year. Compare it with what was done by Hoover, and Roosevelt during “The Great Depression”, and why it lasted longer than it had to. The “New Deal” did not save the country, the Second World War helped bring the country out of the Depression. No I am not saying we need a war to save the country, the country is not setup to make that kind of comeback.
It’s inarguably true that in the very short-term, the New Deal did not fix the economy. Roosevelt’s programs were first passed in 1933 but economists generally agree that the Great Depression did not end until 1939, when the country began preparing for World War II. Unemployment rates, which reached as high as 25%, took several years to recover and did not get below 9% until 1940.
In between the Last depression and now many things were put in place to stop the country from ever reaching this point. However, these acts were removed in the last couple of decades, and they allowed this to happen, because it will benefit them in the end. Also, they are making it so that there is nothing we will be able to do about it. Well that is not exactly true. We can grow our own food, and prepare, or turn over and let the “Nanny State” throw us a bone for a little care.
Do I have the perfect answer? “No.” However, it does not take a “Rocket Scientist to see that this is not the answer. Throwing trillions upon trillions of dollars at It will hurt, not help the problem. I remember as a child that wanted a new bike, thinking why not give everyone a million dollars at birth, that way I could get my bike. However, I remember the answer I got. “Shut up and be happy you have a bike.” Although that was the real answer, what I learned later was if everyone had a million dollars, it would be the same as a dollar. I guess what I am getting at is, because the are going to pump all this money in to the economy the dollar will be worthless.
Now, millions of people no that this is the case, as it is about 3 to 1 are against the Stimulus Package. However, as we found out with the last Package, and Bailout, our so-called elected officials are not hearing our voices, or maybe they are just shutting us out. Say what you want on my opinions, but they are moving us towards and are in the final stages of a “One Continent Government”, The North American Union. Is this the Hope and Change they promised you? Believe it or not, I think it is.
So you can call us nuts, or you can keep you ear to the ground and prepare. Your other option is, step back and let the “Change and Hope” feed you and yours.
