A Sense of Foreboding?

Posted on 10/04/2011 7:18:49 AM PDT by Vinylly

Do any of you have a sense of 'foreboding' at this time? Do you feel that all of us in the Socialist European World Community are at the brink of disaster. First of all bankruptsy of all nations caused by socialism? That our socialist governments have driven us to a worldwide callapse and to anachy? There will be vastly more worldwide unemployment as business can no longer function? That there will be rioting in the streets? More hunger? More homeless? Union lead riot mobs and thugs giving to murder and violence where law enforcement can no longer prevail? I thought Comrade Barrack Houssain bin O'bummer promised us HOPE? Frankly, I can't see any Republican canidate getting us out of the worldwide mess. He/she would only cause a riot from the opposition if they tried. I can't immagine anybody wanting to be a president. How can it be worth it? So this is what happens when society wants government to do everything for them, from birth to the grave. Government just can't do it. Society has become nothing but spoiled little brats. When big mamma Government can no longer give them their milk, -they rebel.

Yes...I have had this feeling for awhile. I am always looking around at other people and am wondering if they are seeing what I am seeing...

Yes, for about 2-3 years now. Rioting will be the least of our worries. When governments fail, they resort to war. WWIII is in the very near future.

Imagine you live in a small cave, together with a growing dragon. You have a supply of food, with some left over.

This arrangement originally worked well. You ate well, and had enough to keep the dragon fed.

Your cave-mate over time, grew. As it did, so did the dragon’s appetite.

Then about 20 years ago, you began giving more of your food to the dragon. Even when you were hungry.

Now, the dragon expects to be fed. You notice you have less to eat, each day...

Inevitability more than foreboding. The rational needs for economic, physical and reproductive survival will reassert themselves soon. Much of the falsehood, self deceit and propaganda that is the lifeblood of leftist western civilization will be ended permanently.

The scary thing is that a sizable minority, and perhaps a majority, of people throughout the West (Europe and US) believe the answer to the collapse of the social welfare state is MORE government and LESS free markets.

No lessons have been learned. None. A lot of people are certain that Hussein couldn’t win a second term, but I say he very well might. Nothing gets the dependent off the couch and to the polls faster than when they believe the mean old Republicans might cut them off. Once upon a time when the economy sucked and people didn’t have jobs they thought to punish the incumbent, now I rather suspect they are more inclined to punish anyone or any party that so much as hints at curtailing the gravy train.

These occupywallstreet vermin are a good reminder that we may be entering into a pre-revolutionary period in which American values and capitalism will be under direct assault like never before. People should be ready to fight back.

Ever notice how the left plays on fear? Global Warming, Cooling, Over population, Nuclear Winter etc? When people aren't afraid, narcissistic, or angry - they have little power.

Europe will have to pay the piper for all the 'free' stuff they gave away - so will we. But out of that can come a more responsible government. Or anarchy. In the US we have a rule of law tradition ... we'll be OK. Europe might or might not...

I know some here dismiss Glenn Beck out of hand and an emotional twerp however, he has been warning about just what we are seeing now in the streets and it is being organized in your own little towns now..
The GOP candidate, whomever that ends up to be, better put it out there that the choice for this nation is between becoming a third rate Marxist/Communist nation or retaining our freedoms and liberties and they need to point it out who is who, who says what in cloaked language and stop being polite about all this. There is too much at stake. 0bama and all his pals should be tried for treason and hanged or at least be put under the jail never to see light of day again.
By the way, did anyone notice yesterday, during the coverage in Italy of the Knox verdict that there is a cruxifix hanging above the judges seats? And in this country we can’t even have the 10 Commandments posted!!Should tell the citizens of this once great nation something.

Thank you for the post. I’ve had this “foreboding” feeling realy bad lately. I pray about it all the time but have no answers of what to do. I fully expect a complete financial collapse, starting in Europe which rolls over into bank holidays here and market collapses. I don’t know if I should sell everything in my 401k’s (even at big loses right now) and go into all cash, or bear funds, or what? I hate the thought of seeing 30 years of saving, preparing for my retirement,etc. all get wiped out in a month. Why is it that the people who are “doing the right things” (making mortgage payments, paying college, saving, etc.) are the ones getting hurt. I know in an economic collapse that everyone else would be in the same boat but where is the consolation in that??

I feel your concerns and I am right there with you when it comes to seeing my retirement disappear, knowing that I have been honest and have paid my mortgage and have been a responsible citizen, etc...but, I believe all of this is occurring for a reason. Stay strong and keep your Faith very close!

RE :"Ever notice how the left plays on fear? Global Warming, Cooling, Over population, Nuclear Winter etc?'

When you declare a end-of-world emergency then it can be used as a one sided debate, "We cant afford not to pass it right now...!" to silence all questions or opposition.

Both Obama and GWB used that to ram through bills without real debate.

Climate change has become more than that, it has become the new socialist economic plot that would force us to buy a expensive product generated by expensive union employees by paying for it with energy taxes on the more conventional economical energy sources : Cap and trade.

I think the only ones who don,t see it is the ones who are causing it, even the stupid socialists most likely feel it but they can not see that it was caused by big government so they keep on voting for what is causing it in the first place.

We live in a land, and a world, blessed with abundant resources. It is good to be quiet and trust in the LORD for all things. To be content. A simple tree makes for excellent viewing, and it does not cost a thing; good landscapes. Too much to be thankful for to grow despondent.

While we are in the midst of tumultuous times I am optimistic about the decade beginning in 2013, after the current miscreants are summarily dismissed from public disservice. The doom and gloomers exhibit an absence of faith, trust, confidence, goodwill, and all that pertains to wending through life as it should be; as servants entrusted with a temporary place full of wonder and opportunity.

That said, a sense of foreboding is healthy when danger approaches. Only it should not rule life, or prevent one from carrying on with confidence and trust in the good things from Above, and their Source.

Because they're not organized - well, they haven't been up until now. It's called the TEA PARTY.

Yes the world is on the verge of financial collapse. There will be no stopping it. I am still for voting for and supporting conservative and if possible Christian candidates. We all knew Zero would push the country further down the road to Marxism and secular humanism. I tell you this from the Scriptures: dividing Israel to appease her enemies angers the God of Israel and He is shaking the world. The nations are close to perplexity and Jerusalem is the Cup of Trembling. All with ears to hear should read Romans 10:8-11.

Nothing will be hidden - everything will be revealed.

This is the only way to expose socialism for what it really is. (Christ had no use for Cesar.)
Those who do not work should not eat, because no man should be used as another mans slave. Eventually, the slaves demand their freedom, and this is what's happening now.
The economy will collapse, and the dependent will quickly come to realize the governments of the world are not "God," and their manna was nothing but poison.
Only when people learn they, and they alone, are responsible for their own keep and salvation will there ever be peace on earth.

If it makes you feel better, even the left is starting to feel the fear. The communists and anarchists have taken over their Wall Street protest, and they were partially responsible for it. Some are still defending the communist movement, but those who are taking the time to pay attention are starting to run away.

DUmmie thread.....
"I just can't help but fear that things have gone horribly wrong.
There is great change afoot. And so far in its way it seems to be the sort of change I have wanted to see for a long time. But I have a very uneasy feeling. Back in 2008 I wanted to see change. I voted for it. And maybe its coming now. But I wanted it to happen because of my vote, not despite it. So I don't feel so good about the people being out in the streets. I voted for people who were to make OWS unnecessary, and where did that go?"

Great post!
This has come up several times and yes I have the same sense. The current global economic trajectory is unsustainable yet few of our leaders are brave enough to articulate this and put the appropriate austerity measures in place.
The parasite class has become emboldened by new handouts, now called "rights" and will revolt if their free government cell phones and meal tickets are taken away.
Greece is the canary.

Or what crises are building in the world or the economy due to his radicalism and lack of leadership.

Nah, I am over the foreboding. It’s more acceptance and continued preparation for what is coming.

I found that once that I accepted that “IT” will, and even must, fail, I was much more clear minded and resolute.

All you can do is encourage those that think the way you do, try to wake some people up to the imminent collapse, resolve yourself to survive the aftermath.

Foreboding yes, I can see the changes happening all around me at a breathtaking pace. I can see things are going to have to change if our country and world are going to survive the current mess. I have seen behind the curtain and it is not a pretty sight. It disgusts me to see people calling themselves leaders the first in line at the trough. I see my tax dollars going to groups whose purpose is to destroy what I love. I see ungrateful slobs demanding more and more handouts. I see illegal invaders coming to this country not for the opportunity but for the endless supply of government largeness. I have a foreboding that it might never end.

But I have hope. I have seen and attended rallies of concerned citizens rising up to protest the injustice of it all. I have seen that anger moved to action at the ballot box. I have seen the rally cries of taxed enough already echo in the chambers of government. I have seen liberals have to lie about fiscal responsibility to try to maintain their hold on power and fail. I can see the most powerful man on earth frustrated in his plans for this nation and being forced to change his approach. I can see the fear in the actions of those that surround and support him.

It is that foreboding that keeps me going. It took years to get this bad in tiny steps and it will not change overnight. These people that have spent their careers taking advantage of our generosity will never give up the power they have tasted easily. They will fight for what they feel entitled while we fight for what is right. Nothing less than the collapse of their form of rule will make the changes needed and in that I find hope.

The Democrats have done plenty of damage, but our go along Republicans have contributed to this mess...google Denny Hastert and read up on him. Whatever happened to “statesmen”. Policy and laws are based on lobbyists and personal profit and this has been going on for far too long. Sara Palin hit a home run with her “crony capitalism”.

Same here. What really aggravates me is that when you go to any news article about the economy or illegal immigration and over 90% of the responses will mirror this board - AND YET the political class keeps proposing the same courses of action.
