How much longer before USA civilization fails?
(I live in USA, just borrowing Canada's y/a)
Democracy's lifespan's are usually less than 200 years.
Now that Uncle Sugar is so deeply in debt and Obamacare is likely to destroy the economy, how much longer do we have before system collapse?
And what will we do then?
Use all our ammo or be reduced to rice and beans?
Learn to live in a Police State under martial law?
Ans what are we going to get the fuel?
America can't survive without the gas and diesel.
About 98% of everything you buy from the stores are delivered by trucks.
President Obama is on a war against oil. But he won't authorize nuclear power plants to get the electricity. Whatever happened to his dreams and promises of solar and wind power? What, he forgot about that?

That's the BIG "kick" to anybody providing a reference or a link these days.
For every one a Liberal can quote that "supports" some positive point, there
are an equal number that dispel those claims. Look at what Liberals claim
about unemployment, the housing market, Stock market, oil/gas and even
every day living costs. Dozens of economists and analysts, proclaim the U.S.
CAN NOT sustain the 85 BILLION dollars a month in worthless paper money,
but Liberals will find a few that deny it is "propping" the economy. There's a
surplus of gas in the country, which is why prices have fallen in most area's.
But THAT too, is about to change. NEW taxes will hit starting January 1st
and HALF the country doesn't know this. The dollar is coming to a "collapse",
without doubt, sooner than later. 8 Countries have already replaced it as the
international monetary standard and another 14 are considering it. Yet, it's
quite simple really. "Those who KNOW, prepare; those who don't, HOPE".

It all started with the progressive movement in the early 1900's when people wanted to control rather than serve the people.
Look at the history progression Democrat Woodrow Wilson used the Jim Crow laws to control the blacks
and the Fed income tax to gain control of the people.
The constitution says that the government can't take your property and money is property, thus judges have become tax collectors in robes.
FED used the depression to turn us towards communism/socialism.
FED and his supreme court infringed upon our freedom of religion to freedom from religion.
The the democrats started regulated guns thus infringing upon our right to bear arms making people subjects instead of freemen.
Obamacare is to control the people according to Dem Sen Dingell.
Then look at all the regulations that the left has imposed upon our business people to the point the government through regulation does control all business.
Senior Democrat Dingell: Obamacare Prepping “to Control the People” by 2014
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.
Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.
Two centuries ago, a somewhat obscure Scotsman named Tytler made this profound observation: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." - Elmer T. Peterson
Norman Mattoon Thomas (Nov. 20 1884-Dec 19, 1968) was a leading American Socialist, pacifist, and 6 time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America. In a 1944 speech he said:
The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of "Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."
He went on to say: " I no longer need to run as a president candidate for the socialist party.
The Democrats have adopted our platform."

I read the old USSR told us they would hang us and we would sell them the rope that they would beat us to the moon
I did hear Japan call us stupid and lazy and that they would replace us as the world bankers
I had to endure hearing the Brits and euros tell mr the E U would surpass the U S that oil would be sold in the euro
So I know you would understand why I would give your wishful thinking about as much credence as I would a bucket of warm spit

That is why I am shopping raw land in the mountains. When the zombie apocalypse hits, the large cities and suburbs around them will fall first.

"President Obama is on a war against oil"
Given that US Domestic oil production is at a 24-year HIGH while foreign oil imports are at a 17-year LOW, I think you should restate your fear mongering with actual facts.
