Have you been to your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) lately and was subsequently dumbfounded by what you saw?
To those of us who live in nice neighborhoods and are employed in a professional environment, you would be shocked by what you’d see at your local DMV.
I have subsequently come to the realization that the America that I live in is crumbling under my feet and I have no illusions that this country’s landslide into the depths inescapable poverty will eventually consume me as well. If you do not believe that this will not happen to you as well, you are self-deluded.
The moment I entered the DMV, I felt as if I had somehow taken a wrong turn and ventured into a third world country. Many of the people applying driver licenses did not speak English. In fact, I heard multiple languages being spoken and not that there is anything wrong with that, but these people were people of poverty, low education, lack of opportunity and gross ignorance. These people looked like cut out photos of people that I saw in National Geographic as a kid in which I was reminded of how lucky I was to be an American.
I asked myself, is this the new norm in America? The DMV does indeed represent a cross-section of America and that cross-section has changed. It is poor, uneducated and is totally ignorant of the constitutional liberties being taken away on a daily basis by our criminal government which has been hijacked by the bankers. I use this anecdotal
In summary, my new realization of what America has become, based solely upon anecdotal data, is an America that is now a third world country. I pride myself on being a man with research based skills and I use these skills in my employment. Therefore, I know better than to trust my anecdotal perceptions (i.e. personal observations). Subsequently, I began to look at reliable national and personal economic indicators which would give me a more accurate picture and I did not like what I found. Not only is the present picture bleak, I quickly came to the realization that there is no hope of recovery under the present system. After you read this article, you will come to the realization that if you keep playing the game by the rules of the banksters, you will begin to look like the rabble that I saw that day at the DMV.
When we say that a country is a third world country, we generally characterize that nation as poor and having and economy which is severely distorted by personal sense of hopelessness and dependence upon government services. These nations also tend to have high rates of illiteracy, poor healthcare, exploding population growth among its poor and suffer under unstable governments. The following is the first part of a series which seeks to answer the question, has America entered third world status?
Where Did It All Go Wrong?
The undoing of America has been a century in the making. In 1913, the most evil organization on the earth was created by an unconscionable act of Congress with the creation of the Federal Reserve. The United States national debt is more than 5000 times larger than it was when the Federal Reserve was first created. and this fact has served to turn nearly all of us into debt slaves with each of us vulnerable to the manipulation of the global elite.
The bankers who helped to create the Federal Reserve intended to permanently enslave the U.S. government to a perpetually expanding spiral of debt, and their plan has worked and their final victory is nearly at hand.
The Irreversible Course of America’s Economic Crash
Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff, stated that the U.S. government is facing a “present value difference between projected future spending and revenue” of 222 trillion dollars in the years ahead. Where are we going to come up with 222 trillion dollars? The short answer is that we won’t.
In 2001, the United States represented 31.8 percent of the world’s economic activity. And just one decade later, at the end of 2011, that share had dropped to 21.6%, which means that America’s portion of the world’s economy is 32% smaller than it was a decade before, and it is declining more with each passing day. With economic indicators such as these, there is no way to climb out of the economic hole we have entered courtesy of the globalist inspired free-trade agreements (i.e. NAFTA, CAFTA). With these kinds of numbers, more Americans will be competing for a smaller number of jobs which are significantly declining in pay.
The Average American Is Taking a Beating
It is not just our nation that is taking a beating, our individual financial situations in this country has grown to a crisis level. America is no longer just in a depression. We have entered third world status, a kind of permanent depression, if you will. Yes, we have skyscrapers and modern technology, but only the elite control these resources and the average American’s standard of living is in a state of economic free fall.
