This is what happens when you attach yourself to the weakest links, whether its business or global markets—what is happening in Greece right now is the result. Now don’t say you haven’t heard it before dear reader. Don’t tell me you didn’t hear the show on WLW years ago with Darryl Parks that I put on this very site showing that the financial game was crumbling—that we are all effectively broke even if the bills haven’t quite caught up to us in the United States yet. Because I’ve been giving the warnings for some time—socialism does not work, strong leadership is absolutely necessary for capitalist endeavors to succeed, and group consensus in either business or politics is worthless—because it weakens leadership instead of strengthening it. But when all those warnings are ignored and an insistence on socialist/collectivist behavior is promoted—you get Greece. The United States is not far behind. Already most of the money paid in taxes goes exclusively to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid leaving money for nearly nothing else. The United States is the only country on earth with opportunities for economic growth so lenders are still willing to provide low-interest loans, which are consumed daily. But at some time very soon, that will dry up, interest rates will raise, and at that point billions become trillions and there will be no way out—just like what Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is facing now in Greece, either complete relief of the austerity measures—or Greece will have to leave the European Union. In essence, Greece must be relieved of its financial burdens otherwise a major block of the Eurozone will be lost with Great Britain soon to follow. The European Union like all unions is rooted in socialism and allows the bad to hide behind the good and the more bricks that fall out of that union—the fewer places there are for the bad to hide. Bad in this case is economies too rooted in socialism to make themselves buoyant.
These are the types of people we were told in the United States we needed to be more like. Obama lectured Americans about the moral veracity of Europe early in his presidency even as Cyprus was the first to visibly fail economically. Behind that small island in the Mediterranean was of course Greece, which few wanted to acknowledge around the world as a real crisis. They even had an election where the socialist Alexis Tsipras won power promising no austerity to the Greek people, so they could continue to live under the safety of socialism—the protection of other people’s money. Now they have capital controls of 60 Euros per day. There are lines at Greek banks for people to get small amounts of cash that is supposed to belong to them. But because there is no money, everyone has to sacrifice their monetary levity and take what is available. Tsipras proposed that Greece have a July 5th referendum on how to deal with the financial crises making many very happy at the prospect of Greece defaulting on its debts. Since 2009 higher taxes and steep government cuts in exchange for bailouts have caused austerity measures that have unemployment at more than 25% on average and 60% among its youth—guess how they vote in elections…………………socialism because they have no opportunity otherwise which was always part of the plan.
Meanwhile in the United States as the nation continues to borrow around $100,000 every second leaving a current public debt of over $18 trillion Obama’s EPA is standing in the way of any further capitalists endeavors—most alarmingly the Pebble Mine in southwestern Alaska. The EPA with Obama has done everything it can to deny a mining permit because of the largest sockeye salmon run in the world which traverses the area. The mine is thought to potentially produce $120 billion dollars in new gold, but in just the time it takes the average person to pay their house payment from month to month, all the potential wealth that mine could have created would have been spent on the national debt. So it’s just a drop in the buckets, yet when even a drop would help, the Obama administration is more committed to the religion of global environmentalism. The dreadful cost of socialism has far-reaching impacts. For instance the cause of the current California water shortage as explained by Shannon Grove, Republican assemblywoman in Kern County is the EPA that created regulations that is literally dumping water into the sea to save a three-inch fish which resides in the area. The crisis is completely artificial because the environmentalists have used the EPA as a kind of inquisition where nonbelievers are tortured if they do not believe in the deity of Mother Earth. But behind the green hate for capitalism are roots that extend into various communist groups that have infiltrated our government for the purpose of halting capitalist activity—all the while increasing spending so that the economy will topple.
Yet nobody has heard much about this California drought, other than they need rain. It was a completely manufactured crises created by an intrusive EPA without proper priorities dedicated to human innovation. Capitalism likes the little three-inch fish from California, and the salmon in Alaska—and if left to their own devices will find solutions to have both, the wealth and the food supply, but there is more at work, a hatred of capitalism driven by rooted communism that is using sympathy for earth’s creatures to sabotage the American economy. The strategy will run dry sooner or later and when that happens America will be faced with the same options as Greece is now, regulated resources, lines to get gas, food, water and most of all—money. Confiscated assets will be the new word of tomorrow as tax increases and high interest rates will soon follow. All this will have been caused by excessively reckless spending and intentional sabotage of American assets and potential productive enterprise—all in the name of saving a few fish.
Look hard at Greece—I told you it was coming, and it’s on its way to America. It will have been caused by progressives for reasons that extend well behind a veil of conservation—directly into the foundations of communism which this country has fought many wars to prevent. Yet it’s in the United States in our schools, our government, and especially in our EPA. And it’s crippling our economy one regulation at a time. Greece didn’t have a choice; their economy was basically some ancient ruins and the sales of gyros to cruise ship tourists. America’s economic collapse is self-imposed, but intended by the same strategy as the radical Alexis Tsipras—to default on the debt and force social changes under a reset clock. Those behind the communist push want America at the same level as Greece and the other countries in the Eurozone who will also eventually fall under economic collapse as well. The restrictions on the economy are strategic to advance progressive political objectives. In the mean time, Americans will have to do something they are not used to, which they are just beginning to feel in California—restrictions to services to train them how to comply with central authority. The economic collapses are self-imposed both in the European Union and in the United States and those with their foot on the brakes are those who want global power for the sake of control. And that is something that nobody on the nightly news is willing to admit to anybody—especially since they have played their part in the debacle. But I can tell you this—people like me will remember how all his happened and I will be there to remind people what occurred and who was really at fault. That I will promise.
