So here’s my warning on the five biggest threats still facing America in the years ahead. Don’t hold your breath thinking anyone in Washington D.C. is willing to address any of these. After all, they are the ones who created most of these problems in the first place.
Crisis #1) Out of control growth of government and related debt spending
Under President Obama, America’s national debt exploded past $17 trillion. Unfunded liabilities owed to present and future entitlement receivers now exceed $250 trillion — a number which can never be mathematically repaid by the U.S. population even if workers were immortal.
Under the hypnosis of the fraudulent idea that “bigger government can solve all our problems,” the American people allowed the federal government to radically swell its size and power, creating a nation where more than half the population is now incapable of thinking any problem can be solved without calling for increased government expansion.
America’s national debt has now gone parabolic, and as wise people say, “Nothing parabolic is sustainable.” At some point, perhaps in the very near future, the parabolic growth of debt will reach a tipping point of collapse. This will likely happen in the days after U.S. debt is downgraded by investment houses, unleashing a global selloff of Treasury bonds. The Fed will print unlimited fiat currency to buy back those bonds, unleashing an explosion of price inflation and currency debasement which will end in a currency collapse and the loss of 99% of the dollar’s present-day spending power. (The dollar, by the way, has already lost over 96% of its purchasing power since the early 1900’s. But that’s a slow theft that few really notice. The coming crash will unravel far more quickly.)
The only difference between Democrats and Republicans on this point is that Republicans will take us to a currency collapse just a little less slowly than Democrats, who seem to be rushing headfirst into economic disaster with unlimited spending and the complete abandonment of sane (or honest) accounting practices by government.
Crisis #2) The explosion of global viral pandemics and superbugs
The Ebola crisis has only just begun, and it’s an urgent reminder that no government or first-world medical system is really prepared to deal with a deadly viral outbreak.
While the U.S. will likely contain isolated Ebola carriers who travel to U.S. cities, a sustained spread of Ebola in Mexico, Central America or South America would be disastrous because the U.S. has no border security. Infected illegal immigrants could walk right in, unchecked.
Even disregarding Ebola, the enterovirus D68 pandemic is already underway across U.S. schoolchildren, and recent studies link its spread to uncontrolled border migration as well.
On top of the viral threats, we are giving rise to drug-resistant superbugs at an unprecedented pace in our nation’s hospitals, where the widespread abuse of antibiotics creates the perfect breeding grounds for deadly bacteria. And because the drug companies love humanity so much, they have abandoned virtually all research into new antibiotics because there’s no profit in them.
Because both Republicans and Democrats are beholden to corporate interests — especially Big Pharma interests — expect to see repeated attempts to profit from pandemics through the unrelenting pushing of unproven vaccines backed by zero evidence that they actually work. Fact: Ebola vaccines will be approved by the FDA without ever be tested against Ebola
