there's no executive approach EVER TO EXIST extra SELF-DESTRUCTIVE THAN A WELFARE kingdom! Like a junkie at the streets attempting to get a repair there's not anything a welfare country won’t dump to aid its seized social and kinfolk supplier position. so long as the united states govt remains in its social and kinfolk supplier position it will likely be most unlikely for america to prevent reckless spending or survive. Right now, the liberals doesn’t have the survival intuition or the knowledge to work out a true have to cease spending. they're dwelling within the second and can’t see any genuine hazard in reckless spending, and also you couple that with an economically ignorant major movement press and common public, all i do know to do is pray. Repealing the minimal salary legislation will supply the social and kinfolk supplier position again to the folks the place it belongs and has constantly been till the “New deal” seized it in 1938. God I ask on your identify, “Save the USA.” Time is a winding down, I don’t know the way a lot we now have left, yet, i do know past a shadow of doubt overall monetary cave in is close to until drastic alterations are made. whilst i glance on the destiny i believe the republicans will quickly get the facility to have their shot at this healthiness care factor. yet, i've got information for them too, like the Dem’s they suspect executive can retain and carry directly to its social and kinfolk supplier function, wrong. I think except the republicans and conservatives set approximately repealing the minimal salary legislations they are going to be noticeable as phony liberals and quick changed. yet, in fact do just like the Dem's by no means admit upfront what your actual intentions are, simply git in there and rid the rustic of this minimal salary legislation. it is a unfastened industry position killer. See Sirmans survival plan additional down. lots of the enormous towns water, sewage, and bridges infrastructure have been outfitted earlier than a minimal salary legislations, so, don’t inform me junking the minimal salary legislations won’t shop this nice nation. And this is the genuine kicker: the us economic climate remains to be the commercial engine of the area and if it collapses it takes the realm economic system down with it. yes, the area economic climate could bail us, yet now not prior to possessing us. The apple cart has been dissatisfied and the single factor that could shop the united states is a real unfastened marketplace position. natural communism and socialism by no means has and not will paintings, yet, we've got a brand new monster some distance worse than either one of these platforms to cope with, it’s referred to as the welfare country. there is not any method ever to exist extra self-destructive than a welfare state. It leaves virtually no survival instruments in position to survival on while the bust cycle comes round or if the financial system collapses. it truly is no comic story while I say it can be all of the as far back as the Stone age for contemporary civilization. we don't have any powerful nuclear and nuclear family method to outlive on. we've centralized manufacturing unit farming for our meats and greens and hardly ever any small farmers and residential gardeners. 

That ability we don't have any sufficient emergency backup bartering means if the economic system collapses and funds is valueless. And on and on, our family members morals and values may make puppy consume puppy appear like a Sunday picnic after every week right into a cave in. Wages and costs needs to be unfastened floating for a real unfastened marketplace position to paintings and that can’t take place with a minimal salary legislations or any form of salary or cost control. The shopper fee of residing is what’s going to kill off america economic climate and Obamacare simply hurries up the method. here's the Ultimatum: both the us govt repeal the minimal salary legislation so that it will loose the folks to save lots of themselves and the rustic, or it attempts to consolidate and carry directly to its present social and kinfolk supplier role. If it chooses the latter there's no doubt in my brain. you cannot get blood out of a turnip. I doubt there's any gold left at citadel Knox and there's no telling what else has already been bought off by way of the federal reserve. i am telling you as a guy of significant great average knowledge, until the minimal salary legislation is repealed we'd to boot kiss our freedom and this nice state reliable via forever.
