USSR is one recent example. It no longer exists, new governments were set up to replace it.
I, among others, would be VERY interested in whatever you report. Please ping me when you do!
Hopefully, we can create islands of stability by encouraging the civil society in red states. However, this will require the passage of state laws that discourage Leftist migration from the blue states. Promote laws that restrict welfare benefits, uphold gun rights, family values, ban/restrict abortion in addition to advancing free-market policies
And they'll die of thirst before they ever reach my house in Scottsdale. :)
I think the one certainty is that the central bankers' puppet government has no intention of collapsing, regardless of what happens to the economy or to us producers.
I’m sure of one thing. We will continue paying for it.
I’d love to hear their observances too, if you think to ping me when you post.
“What Will Happen When The Government Collapses?”
You will be on your own so get prepared to be self sufficient.
Avoid St Louis and Chicago.
Continue until you get here.
The Canadians might invade but the worst that will happen is that they will make you eat gravy on your French fries.
The Govt.,far from collapsing, will exponentially explode. It`ll be just the opportunity the Statists, both Democrat and Republican, have been waiting for.
What will precipitate the collapse will be a tyrannical government or even a dictatorship. I could see large numbers of states leaving the union and forming their own countries. I do not believe that the US military will follow orders to fire on American citizens so there will not be a civil war, just a collapse of the union.
I’m afraid Government won’t so much collapse as crush we the people who live beneath its jackboot.
Governments don’t generally collapse they just become totalitarian like Bloomberg’s New York. They have the guns and the forces to uses them they will see to it that they get the money they want no matter the costs.
"Meanwhile these select few are out there buying all the gold, silver, available farm land and any other tangible, useful asset they can get their hands on because they know whats coming."
"The economic devastation will lead to armed conflict and the results will be tragic. It will take generations before we recover, and theres always the chance that we wont ever be the same, so prepare your self."
some of us might have a “itchy finger”
This weekend I cranked up the DVR and re-watched “Cromwell”. Sadly I don’t see anyway to avoid the collapse that is coming expect if the military stages a coup at some point.
And that is a crap shoot. Do you get a restoration of the republic or a military junta?
As you say I fear for my children’s future, it looks rather bleak.
JACKSON: Slavery. Death. More slavery. Did I mention death? We TOLD you so!"
H: OK. Now that you've gotten that off your chest, is there anything you can contribute that helps?"

First thing is Clan Lurker throws one hell of a party.
There is the ongoing discussion of whether it will be “Without Rule of Law” or “Excessive Rule of Law”.
The reality will probably be both.
The fedgov will not have the resources to be everywhere,
but where they are it will be heavy handed and excessive.
Ditto on the ping.
A few minutes ago, FOX's Megyn Kelly said "we weren't supposed to have a muslim brotherhood president but there he sits" and my jaw dropped thinking she was finally outting hussein. It took a few moments to realize she was talking about Egypt. At the time, I was in the other room making a list of garden seeds I was short of for next year and thinking of ways to expand the garden... just in case.
They will be vacationing in the mountainous Basque region and go down as far a Barcelona. I pray they will be safe. Here’s what is going on in Madrid:
Did you miss the jackboots in Boston last week yanking people out of their homes at gun point? Too many people think our military won't turn on the citizens...
I agree with you 100%. We need to resurrect what was once unashamedly called the “Christian consensus” which means that our society and laws should comport with the essential elements of Judeo-Christian thought. This does not in any way mean that states should create their own theocracies; but it does mean that there are certain absolute and time tested truths that can be used to promote the civil society. These constructs are an anathema to the moral relativism of the Left and they provide more than sufficent means of excluding their ilk. The Left can occupy their Sodoms and Gomorrahs, and the results will be predictable.
We just need a few key states to take these ideas seriously.
I remember when the Berlin wall fell. One day it was there and the next day it was on the ground. The guards were gone and east Berliners were tearing it down.
Remember the day Bush had a press conference with his money men there and said there had to be a bailout right then or the major banks would fail. We didn't know it until that day.
I fear we won't know the country has failed on its obligations, until the announcement is made one day and the govn. confiscates our savings accounts that day. I think we are treading water and about to go down the drain before we know it.
Don't count on it. They'll probably still be trying to blame anything other than themselves.
Psychological group think takes over united cop types. What happened in Boston will happen to the country. All the cops types took on a group mentality - it was they, as a group with a common identity against the rest of the citizens in order to get the bad guy.
Once all the cop types unite, psychological group think rules and the orders given to them unite them as one. From that point on, outsiders (meaning individual citizens) don't matter anymore. They won't let their group down by deviating from orders given.
You are going to be saying, “Why would the cops/state guard/national guard/Homeland Security cops, do that to citizens?” Group think/goals/orders will be the answer as to why they did/do it.
Look at human behavior. Most people want to belong to a group to feel they “belong”. One of the strongest groups is law enforcement. When they are together, everyone else is an outsider. They will work in groups and citizens better follow the orders given to them by the cop group/mayor/governor, etc.. If you don't follow orders, the cop group will be on you and you have no standing with the cop group. You are going down, one way or another.
There will be pockets of Excessive Rule of Law,
and places where they can’t get to that will be
Without Rule of Law.
Thanks. I’m familiar with Matt “Travis McGee” Bracken.
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
The Third Reich and the USSR had no intention of collapsing, either.
(or at least not for another 988 years, in the case of the Reich).
Please keep me posted on your D and SIL’s Spain travel. Thanks.
Were the jackboots in Boston military or militarized police?
And all of Massachusetts is somewhat of a special case; they lick the hand that feeds them, their chains rest lightly upon them.
What the hell is wrong with your “f” key?
I don't know ... with all the low lifes that live in that Paradise Valley area ... you're closer to the zombies that we are in Tempe. :<)
Thank you for maintaining the ping list.
That last is already happening to an exent in places like L.A. Look into the situation by searching with keywords like Los Angeles ethnic cleansing blacks Mexicans.
Why did you delete the letter f out of that entire last post?
I explained it b4 to you.It doesn’t work.
I am getting it looked at manana.

“WHO DOES THIS SOUND LIKE?”
Sadly, it sounds like most anybody occupying the halls of power in Washington DC these days. albeit to varying degrees.
Wolverines indeed! I think you’ll enjoy this:
Freedom? Doubtful look for something between Argentine collapse & the orgy of bloodlust that was Rwanda in 98 . All depending on how big a percentage of the population is awake & aware of just how much damage the corrupt political class have done.
Then prepare to take as many as possible with you .
