The New Year has started with a monstrosity of a budget deal, one that proves that neither political party, Democrats or Republicans, is really serious about controlling the growth of big government.
But soap opera dramatics about fiscal "cliffs" and sequestration shouldnt deflect from where President Obama is really taking this country. Consider this story from the Wall Street Journal a few days before Christmas:
Thousands of people in several Argentine cities ransacked supermarkets for a second day in the latest challenge to President Chistina Kirchner, who is struggling to revive a weak economy...In the central city Rosario, two people were killed during the incidents and 137 people arrested.
The violence puts Mrs. Kirchner in a difficult position as the poor are [her] core constituents...Her government spends billions of dollars a year to help low income families, including free health care...[Yet] Argentine activists who claim to represent the poor traditionally block access to supermarkets in the month of December to demand free food and other items...The latest events were some of the worst acts of looting and vandalism in years.... Local media showed dozens of men, women, and children hauling away televisions, refrigerators, and food.
Some have said my warnings about a coming civil war between makers and takers are exaggerated. Its true that Argentinas politicians have been waging class warfare since Juan and Eva Peronand they arent fazed when it turns bloody. Obama and the Democrats are relative newcomers to the game. But Argentina reveals who really suffers when those who create a nations wealth get mugged by those who spend itas just happened this week in Washington.

What is it called when People as a whole sense something coming?
The Guns that are being bought and the mere fact that we are discussing this bodes ill for the future.
I think the realization explained in this article is spot on but too late. The media and Hollywood controls the message to the 49% of takers. Intellect and logic, let alone basic free market economics, will never reach the takers.
We breached the tipping point. Between the citizens dependent on the Fed for a job and the citizens and illegals that are dependent on the fed for food, housing, cash, healthcare and retirement. I don’t see more than 50% of the country ever voting for candidates that want to shrink government and reduce entitlements. They would be voting themselves a pay cut, or at least a lifestyle reduction.
From a guy that lived through the Argentinian collapse:
History repeats itself, aggression against pro gun states.
Lincoln Part Deux declares Americans are too stupid to own weapons of mass destruction and urges the forced induction of miilions to be part of his Brown Shirt Militia.
The people I'm talking about know who they are.
Doesn’t everyday bring us one step closer to something that may happen in the future?
That’s essentially what happens with the passage of time.
We are devolving into a Nation of silly conspiracy theorists. Sadly, way too many have prominent positions in the media.
Does anybody notice how non-responsive the Congress has become to the American electorate ?
Our Nation was built on freedoms which were protected by government in the ‘Bill of Rights’and the Constitution .
Now , government seems to have become larger , and the role of citizens is to financially support this engrossed bureaucracy .
Our rights are steadily being trampled , one-by-one .
We , and our rights , are now becomming subservient to government largess.
Been predicting this for the last few years now. The seeds have been planted.
This is what I have been predicting for the last few years.
Two wolves and a lamb, etc,etc.
and history shows us those people that are really the first to suffer and continue to suffer after the war...it generally ain’t those in charge, it’s the poor schmuck that gets dragged into it even when he didn’t want to and anyone living on/owning property where the battles are.
Can we start photoshopping the tyrant and his wife as the Peron’s now? O Cry For Me Argentina, cause no one else is...
Why should they be responsive?
They’ve got an 8% approval rate and a 90% re-election rate.
When the ships stop off-loading ..
when the trucks stop running ..
when the EBT card stops working ..
It’s time to lock and load !!
The perpetrators prosper while the peasants die.
We need to alter that equation a bit this time around.
I’ll go one more step...
The seeds were sown years ago. The harvest is about to come in.
