Somebody once wrote: ‘Hell is the impossibility of reason.’ That’s what this place feels like. Hell. — Chris Taylor, Platoon
Millions of people have risked their lives trying to get to America, the place once considered to be the beacon of freedom. America was considered the place where people had the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This is no longer the case; despotism crept silently and incrementally into the social fabric until what we have left resembles North Korea, as Alex Jones recently stated. The decay and decadence of the boom years has now turned into the decayed and destitute of the bust years.
With ongoing wars, civil unrest starting in New York City, and the beginning of an economic depression, the future for young Americans appears bleak. So much so, that the father of Reaganomics, Paul Craig Roberts, recently wrote an article titled, The Day America Died: The only Future for Americans is a Nightmare, where he actually tells people to leave the country.
Somebody once said that “the true watersheds in human affairs are seldom spotted amid the tumult of headlines broadcast on the hour.”(1) Paul Craig Robert’s warning was a watershed moment, prompted by the extrajudicial killing of American citizens.
This killing of Americans via a secret list created by a secret tribunal is just another example of the flagrant arrogance displayed by the Obama regime.
Congressman Ron Paul was the first to condemn Obama’s actions when he recently expressed how this precedent could be used in the future to justify the assassination of members of academia or members of the press (or at least the ones that haven’t sold out yet):
‘Can you imagine being put on a list because you’re a threat? What’s going to happen when they come to the media?’ Paul asked during an appearance at the National Press Club.
‘The media becomes a threat or a professor becomes a threat. Some day that could well happen. This is the way it works. It’s incrementalism.’ Source
As Paul Craig Roberts pointed in his 2008 book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions: How Prosecutors and Law Enforcement Are Trampling the Constitution in the Name of Justice:
[The] assault on U.S. civil liberty that Bush justified in the name of the ‘war on terror.’ The government assured us that the draconian measures apply only to ‘terrorists.’ The word terrorist, however, is not defined. The government claimed the discretionary power to decide who is a terrorist without having to present evidence or charges in a court of law. (Page 194) Source
In short, if any American President wanted to get rid of anyone, all they’d have to do is to call the victim a terrorist and order their murder — no judge, no jury, no problem! Recently, the Vice President of the United States likened the Tea Party to terrorists when he stated that they “acted like terrorists”. The simple fact that there was almost no protest or outrage from the American public is proof that the public at large is no longer able to think on their own. Jeff Rense said:
I believe that that combine of media is now to a large degree the actual virtual consciousness and brain of the majority of the masses of this country. I believe it thinks for them, I believe it decides for them. I believe they are hopelessly irrevocably consulting with it 24 hours a day without even knowing it because of the ability to project into the subconscious and the conscious mind all the time the imagery the thoughts the processes the boundaries. I believe we are living now with people in a secondary role to a virtual consciousness and a brain that has been created with utter and full intent. Source
Exile on planet Dagobah
Legendary investor Jim Rogers has, in several RT interviews, advised young people to move to Asia. Asia is where the money is, or so says Mr. Rogers. The first step to leaving would be to apply for a passport. It’s always good to have a passport just in case, because you never know when the government will implement exit visas. An exit visa is when you have to request permission from the government to leave the United States. There are no such restrictions in place, yet. In terms of countries to go to, I will leave a link to an article from Activist Post titled, 5 Best Countries to Escape America’s Decline.
If you are thinking about starting or finishing your education, there are a plethora of international universities you can attend overseas, many of which have lower tuition fees than American schools. There are plenty of international universities that teach in English. If you go to fortune 100 companies across the U.S. you will likely find mid- to high-level managers who acquired their undergraduate degrees from places like Pakistan, India, China etc. who are managing Americans who are indebted for life for their American degrees, while they work for the boss who received his degree in a third-world country.
Americans are fast learning that the police and “law enforcement” in America do not care about the people or the Constitution. They only exist to protect big business. Politicians no longer even bother to pretend to represent the people. The house of ill repute only responds to the will of the lobbyist. To expect salvation from an election is delusional. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts has spoken. Take his warning lightly at your own peril.
