How can we fix it? We better or this will not be the same America.
Luckily, we have some examples around the world to draw on. Unfortunately, because we used to be number one, Americans have developed a big head, convinced we are still number one. Sad truth however, we have dropped to number 27 on the standard of living scale, dropping rapidly and when the liberal left gets what they want done, it will plummet out of control. About that, there is nothing to discuss. Free enterprise capitalism is the sole reason we have what we do, versus the bare store shelves in socialist countries, where the people are all poor. Out of the 235 times socialism has been tried, not a single one has succeeded. So that part is mute. Now, how can half the US population imagine somehow they can make it work? The sad part is, the very people it is claimed to help with the handouts are the people harmed the most. The motivation to succeed and make money is destroyed. Right now, over 45% of our population is dependent on the government. When that number reaches 50% our democratic system is gone. The only candidates able to get into office are those that make the giveaway promises. Than, the movers and shakers, industrious people who know how to make money will disappear. Just as the throngs of enterprising people leave rich countries like Venezuela and American states that then become poor countries and poor states. California for an example, has gone from the richest state to near the poorest and soon will be. Just today, a wonderful lady named Natasha called, in tears, to say she had been robbed, of all her money and all cards. Going on to say: “California is no longer a safe place to live, she has to move.”
Everyone in America is bombarded with political calls. Mine run at least twenty a day. They began with simple invitations, to outright demands, then threats, then guilt trips. ‘If you don’t donate we will lose the country and it will be your fault.’ The last message on the Georgia race read: “The Dems are spending millions. you must donate.” Is that what our political system has denigrated to? Money?
If a German political candidate, for the opposite example, put an ad on TV he’d be guaranteed to lose. The voters would ask: “If he can be that reckless with his money, what will he do with public money.”
For one thing, there are no lobbyists or fund raisers in Germany. A billboard is erected in the town square a candidate tacks his platform on and he better do what he promised. If he does not, he will have one choice. Leave the country. He will be shunned. No one will talk to him. He will not be able to get a job sweeping streets. Germans are very frugal and conservative. No one finances anything, even mortgages to buy houses. This is how fanatical they are for an example. The President borrowed $600,000 to buy a house. Nothing sinister about it, like Obama’s shady deal with a known racketeer on a five million dollar house. The German president was forced to resign. For only the reason, the population asking; ‘if he cannot manage his money any better that he needs to borrow, how will he manage our money?’ ROUSS!! That simple. Not many Americans know how well off the Germans are. Every German has a healthy savings account. On average the German worker gets twice the pay of similar positions in America. Companies give two month paid vacations. No less than one month. When the economy goes down, they think nothing of it. just go on longer vacations. I have been there when unemployment hit 29%. No way to know it unless official figures are published. Twenty five percent in America, the 1929 level, and there are soup kitchens and lines at the welfare office. Travel anywhere in the world and all the tourists to be seen are Germans, while an American is never seen. Americans do not have the money to travel around the world the way Germans do.
Read a few of John Bauer’s political and money making books and the explanation for this disparity will become perfectly clear. The convulsions America is now going through is not a new phenomenon. It’s a predetermined plan hatched by Franklin Roosevelt. Promise enough freebies and the only party that will be able to win an election is the one that promises the moon but unable to even deliver any space dust. That plan is now coming to fruition. The result is what Maggie Thatcher warned us about. “The only problem with socialism; sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.” At that point poverty sets in. How many Americas are now out of work, unable to make ends meet, losing their homes. Banks now are in trouble. Some economists are even predicting an entire banking collapse. Attempting to politically fix this disaster, as we have just witnessed, is impossible. There might be some hope however. The examples are now too well established to refute. Every single Democrat run area is in trouble. Crime, foreclosures, homelessness, cities declaring bankruptcy. People are leaving places like California and New York in herds. NY population is now half what it was. If enough Americans wake up and figure out it’s government that has caused this dire economic situation and refuse to get pushed around by government any more, they won’t be able to fix the country, but will fix themselves. Maybe something like the guy writing this. He has been arrested and tossed into jail seven times for not doing anything the way government demands. Might sound dreadful, not even a mosquito bite compared to what was gained. Like vacation homes in three foreign countries he drives his own little Hansa jet to. Homes in seven state. Been a good weather chasing snowbird all his life. He has no economic background. Not an industrialist, Not even a businessman. Just a simple minded country bumpkin construction worker who cannot do anything by government edicts. he does not know of anything else he has done any differently than anyone else. The result is being able to build a house for one third the normal cost. That all by itself makes it possible to live like a millionaire without being one. There are public records in court houses and probate registries of seven states of the renegade things I’ve done. In the small Cape Cod town I grew up in there were two industries. Clam digging and boat building, the trade I began with. Flunking everything else in school. If an uneducated nobody like me can do it, than so can anyone else. It just might be that my tiny example might influence a few other people to do likewise. We have a choice. Either be slaves in the broken system, be snookered into getting wound up about politics, wasting time protesting and rioting, or we can get off the plantation the way some slaves did in 1850 to become free men, several becoming millionaires, like Booker T. Washington for one. Need any more convincing, read the book ‘OPM’ Order by email: “Johnbauer321@yahoo.com
