As support in North Dakota grows in favor of abolishing property taxes and making it an amendment to their state constitution, it’s time to push for similar measures in the other 49 states. Supporters of the bill gathered more than 28,000 signatures to put that question on the ballot next June. I can hardly wait until this spreads across the nation, as millions are being made homeless by the hidden property taxes that make for multi-thousand dollar a month mortgage payments.

I must admit to some skepticism here, though.. North Dakota is sitting on a huge oil deposit and jobs in the oil industry are booming right now. Other states don’t have the natural wealth in the ground (or in many cases, that wealth is "owned" by the federal government and locked up. Which brings me to the next interesting topic…

There is No Oil Shortage

The US government statistics show that within the US borders, there are about 1.4 trillion barrels of recoverable oil in the ground. That’s about 250 years’ worth at 7 billion barrels a year — more than all the oil the world has consumed since the first oil well was made operational 150 years ago in Titusville, Pennsylvania.

Federal restrictions on land leasing mean that only 2.2% of the developable oil fields are available to be worked by oil companies. The rest is locked up by federal beaurocratic rules.

Looking at coal supplies, North America has 497 billion short tons of recoverable coal — more than three times that of Russia.

So the energy crisis is government-fabricated. We could be enjoying gasoline at less than fifty cents per gallon if the government would get out of the way and let the offshore drilling be done. We could solve our energy problems, stop the wars and scale back our spending to defense only. Which brings me to the next topic…

War and Banksters: An Unholy Alliance

I’ve been gradually reaching the difficult-to-stomach conclusion that much of the "unsolveable" problems of the world are being created on purpose and that purpose is to enrich the world bankers–uh banksters. It’s quite probable that the situation is hopelessly entrenched and beyond fixing, as was the story in the movie The International. Corruption has set in at every level of government, in every office, save for a few, and throughout the banks and Wall Street. In fact, the corruption is so widespread that the law enforcement arm of the government is broken, thus allowing one ponzi scam after another to operate, bilk its clients and the go bankrupt. The ugly creature is beginning to emerge, open it’s gaping maw to reveal unspeakable horrors now. Government is also running rampant, flagrantly abusing its authority, harassing small businesses, farmers, food co-ops, etc. Things have run amok and it’s so scary, because it’s not a Tom Clancy novel anymore–it’s now the reality. Many stock market players are waking up to the fact that "yesterday’s tinfoil is today’s reality."

So where does that leave us? Revolution? You gotta be kidding. The People, with their pistols and rifles, against Predator Drones, Hellfire missiles, Smart Bombs and who knows what else? There’s no level playing field. A revolution won’t stand a chance. So what can we do?

Wait for it all to collapse. The way the Fed is printing counterfeit fiat paper, it is a mathematical certainty that the whole system will eventually collapse. It won’t be an organized and orderly one, either. The banksters and their henchmen at the Fed will kick the can down the road as far as they can, and when it won’t go any farther, get ready for the most catastrophic collapse the world has ever seen. Remember Black Friday sales? See how people will trample each other to death over a $2 Chinese made waffle iron that will probably be in the dump in 2 months? Now imagine those same people haven’t had anything to eat for three days, the supermarkets are stripped bare of food (because there’s no fuel or money to pay the transportation side of the economy) and the grid goes down and suddenly it’s economic armageddon. Uh-oh. There are something lik 65 million people in America that are on government welfare. When those welfare checks stop, you can bet all hell is going to break loose.

So, with the stage set, we’re waiting for the dominos to fall. The first domino is Greece, then the collapse spreads like wildfire across Europe. The EU is about to dissolve under the stress already. Europe will plunge into chaos and much of the money that was invested there will flee to the US or other safer territory, temporarily, giving the Dollar a short-term boost. But the fire is not out. And the fiscal irresponsibility of the US government will continue to elevate the problems here in the US until our day or reckoning arrives, as it is in Europe. Some say we have maybe 18 months. Others conclude that it may be more like 5 years or longer before it all goes to hell in the US. While we can’t agree on the timing of collapse, we all can agree that it is a matter of when, not of if.

The big question hanging over concerned preppers is what will be the course of action on the part of the government? With recent legislation on the table granting the government the power to indefinately detain Americans on American soil, rumors of half a million plastic coffins at FEMA centers, internment centers next to railways in much of the south and other signs of German Nazi-style prison camps popping up all over the place, one has to wonder if, upon the great crash of the USA economy, whether the military will be deployed to round up US citizens and relocate them all into prison camps or slave labor camps. It sounds absurd, and even five years ago it was unthinkable, but I think the federal government and their power broker henchmen are scared to death of an awakening Sheeple. They are doing everything they can to prepare for mass civil unrest. We know they have the tax-extorted funding to pull it off. The real question is will they use it, or will things deteriorate so fast that enlisted men refuse to report to duty, preferring to bug out with their families to safety on their own? So many questions.

As 2011 comes to a close, the USA sits in the precipice, with no viable pro-American candidates running on either party, and a growing, but microscopic, support for the Libertarian Party. People are getting fed up in the USA, and polls are showing that, but with 51% of the voting public on the welfare roles, the Democratic system is a failure. It will have to collapse, and civil war will kill off 3/4 of the American population, if not first by famine, disease and panic, in the two weeks following the shutdown of the American economy. Get ready, and hope the government doesn’t try to steal what reserves and housing you’ve set aside for yourselves. Good luck, America!
