HEY YANKEE LOBSTERS, YOU'RE ALMOST AT A BOIL!
Leave the USA for a few years. Travel the world. Live abroad. Come back, What you find back in the good ole USA will shock and alarm you. You don't notice it from day to day as you're right there in the lobster pot where the temperature is changing at increments which you do not see. The man who wrote this did see, though as he'd been away for a bit.
"I returned to a changed panorama and a nation sleep-walking towards its own destruction. The American people have increasingly become "dumbed down" through their media - they are becoming polarized with extremists on both the left and right proclaiming messages of hate and intolerance. The media fails to inform Americans the peril their country is now in - there is a total lack of awareness of the dangers that lie ahead. People fail to grasp on the realities of the economic, political and environmental world in which the USA must now co-exist.. There appears to a total lack of leadership or understanding in solving America's or the world's problems.
One of the tragedies resulting from the "brain-washing" of the American people is in deceiving them that they are the greatest nation of earth that their way of life is the model all nations should follow. When it is really a system where the super rich buy election ads and the sheeple vote on the best ads using glitch prone software.
The leadership claims that democracy is the form of governments all nations should adopt. America is the "land of freedom", yet the majority of American's are under bondage to an economic system that has enslaved them. They are several hundred separate taxes or licensing fees imposed on them every day so that children can't get an education but must join the military in hopes of scholarships.
Yet many America's continue to deceive themselves into believing that God is blessing America. While they continue to sing "God Bless America" it is becoming increasingly clear that God is no longer blessing America. Rather, America is now being cursed because of its sins.
Why would God curse America when it still proclaims to be a Christian nation? Clearly God has blessed America in the past - why should these blessing now withdrawn and the nation be cursed. The reason why America is being cursed is because of the rejection of the legal code given to us by God through the Bible on how we are to live our lives, and be governed.
Let's look at some of the reasons how and why America is being cursed today, which will shortly lead to its destruction.
1. War - the mess America has got itself into in Iraq us a direct result of one of two scenarios. If we're naive, we will believe that this nation was relying on its own military might and trying to resolve international problems though force, rather than having the faith to trust God to defend them, as He promised if we kept His commandments. Our Nazi-like incursion into two innocent countries, Afghanistan now Iraw, will eventually result in the defeat of the USA, followed by its economic collapse. If we are cynical, we will see that the White House covered its agenda of oil-grabbing with lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction. The Bush Team wrapped itself in Lady Liberty's white gown and proclaimed itself to be removing a tyrant whom it had in reality supported for decades. At a time when much worse tyrants did worse genocide elsewhere in less oil rich areas.
Economics - why has what once was the world's richest nation now the world's greatest debtor nation*. America is now totally dependent on being able to attract capital from its former enemies to prevent its economy collapsing. When America's former enemies are no longer prepared to lend the money to sustain the American economy will be the time its economy will collapse. (* clickable URL)
Environmental - The air is toxic. (The ozone layer has a hole the size of Antartica. ) Everybody is coughing and has lung damage. Clearly the USA is now suffering the direct consequences of the break-down of the global environment. No other nation has squandered its non-renewable resources as America has done. The rejection of environmental laws God has given mankind has directly resulted in the ecological disaster this planet now faces. Yet America's leaders continue to live in denial that these problems exist, because the changes needed to be made would not be acceptable economically or politically. Yet unless these changes are made, natural disasters such as the recent hurricanes will continue to increase.
Law and Order - continued break-down of moral standards and growth in the influence of drugs has resulted in an exploding prison population and growth is most types of crime. I was shocked to experience people being physically attacked and beaten while in the center of a huge city in broad daylight when visiting a famous city.
Care for the needy - I was amazed to see the numbers of homeless living on the streets in the USA. For a nation that has so much wealth, it is a shock to see so many poor people begging in the streets. This one does not see in Europe or New Zealand. There is something wrong with a society that does not provide care for those less fortunate.
Divisions within American society - the opposition to the Iraqi War is now gaining moment, with public demonstrations against the occupation of Iraq throughout the USA. Unfortunately, the American people were lied to by their leaders, supported by the populist media (such as Fox News) and the Christian-right into supporting the invasion of Iraq in 2003. They have now are coming to realize how they were deceived. To withdraw the American forces from Iraq now would be an even worse disaster for the country than the illegal invasion was in the first place.
Cost of living - as inflation increases, and real incomes declined, many people are now struggling to exist. Increasing interest rates placing additional burdens of the American consumer and industry. The standard of living will steadily decline as the national and consumer debts grow - a greater percentage of income is being required to service these debts, reducing disposable income. Taxation will continue to increase as the governments struggle with increasing domestic and military
America's ability to defend itself - the War against Terrorism hasn't even kept out the usual onslaught of illegal aliens! It has placed a considerable burden on the average American tourist as well as upon the domestic economy, with little to show for it. For a visitor to the USA today one feels like one is entering the Soviet Union in the days of the Cold War. Homeland Security is costing the American taxpayer billions of dollars.
The destruction of America's production base. America became great through exporting its goods, technology and services to the world. This ability of America to produce and export competitively is being undermined, as more resources are being diverted into defense and the military. While Japan and German (both high-cost producing countries) continue to competitively increase their exports, American industry is no longer able compete internationally.
The health of Americans - anyone visiting the USA is amazed with the number of overweight people. Clearly something is wrong with the American diet. Maybe it is the hormones used in producing meat that is partly responsible. Where you have a society driven by greed, producing food for maximum profit, regardless of the consequences to the consumer, the result are a people often eating themselves to death, always lusting for more, and never satisfied.
The final decline and coming collapse of the American Empire will be sudden and dramatic. It will reduce the USA to a land of poverty; its people will face horrendous tribulation. There will be total economic collapse. Money will become worthless. There will be a complete break-down in law and order - anarchy will reign. There will be widespread famine and disaster. Millions will die. What was once the richest country in the world will soon become the poorest nation in the world.

POSTER's NOTE: Possibly a shift toward a more organic, high power diet, along with some extrication from the economic mainframe into small-is-beautiful, cottage based industries, along with self-sufficiency, growing your own food and getting off grid and generating your own light, heat, will save man of us from any bumps.
