Martin Armstrong Warns Civil Unrest Is Rising Everywhere: "This Won't End Pretty"
Zerohedge ^ | 6/28/14 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 06/28/2014 7:46:16 PM PDT by Kartographer

People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.

Look at our own dysfunctional government. Like a great fire sometimes the best thing to do is to step back and just let it burn itself out.

The middle class has been drained of its savings, all the jobs are going to foreigners while prices are skyrocketing and the value of the dollar is falling.

Something has to happen. Or we’ll just slowly keep imploding like a Zimbabwe or Venezuela.

We can be armed to the teeth but it will still affect us.

If ya can’t go to work or the grocery store with out being in danger...it will affect us.

I read a book a long time ago about the conflict in Sarajevo. There was a long bridge people had to go over to get to work. It was surrounded by snipers that would pick people off as they crossed TO GET TO WORK.

One of the most marvelous things about this country is the relative safety. I pray we don’t lose it.

Its inevitable we will in terms of the long distance movement. You saw the Occutards. These parasites will be running around smashing windows and robbing old ladies. In small communities, it will probably be okay, but imagine what Chicago would look like in a collapse. The whole south side spilling into the rest of the city like toxic slime

When society breaks down, individuals assume institutional responsibilities.

Groceries are distributed by neighbors...not stores.

We barter for what we get...but life goes on.

Obama is naive and stupid. "His people" will be hurt most. But America will survive.

And as to relative safety. That is best provided by individuals. With everyone armed...there will be plenty of safety.

They are buying it for the Social Security Administration, the EPA, the VA, the IRS...

When the Gov't collapses, these folks will abandon their posts.

That ammo will sit in some armory unused.

Obama is an idiot. He believes central planning is possible because he read such in his communist studies.

He can't even launch an Obamacare website. How will he defend his silly government?

There is a reason for the ammo. There is a reason police units are being upgraded to military units, why FATCA was passed to stop us from banking in a different country, why the NSA spies on us all. We are in a prison, and we won't be let out until we pay their debts.

I wonder if we aren’t losing it already to a great extent. Ten years ago I flew with my pre-teen grandson and two friends from Houston to California and the four of us drove from San Diego up to San Francisco, spending lots of time visiting areas in between. Never thought of being afraid or concerned. Wouldn’t think of repeating that now, even if I was carrying.

Lots and lots of places in Houston I wouldn’t dream of driving through that several years ago I didn’t think a thing about.

My world has gotten a whole lot smaller and I pay attention to everyone and everything around me. I often ask myself if it is because I’m older and feel more vulnerable or because there are now more situations that are beyond my control because of societal changes.

When their food stamps are cut off they will starve.

They only know dependency.

On who can they be dependent once the gov't fails to feed them.

Of course you are right. Plenty of places in Dallas (if I have to go there) that I would have a panic attack if I were to find myself in.

We will lose our safety gradually...so we won’t notice. Just like every other freedom we are losing.

I guess I was referring more to a complete collapse...when people can’t move around in any safety at all.

Given the IRS malfeasance, there is no way they are going to be able to collect going forward.

Given that the takers put ZER0 hours into the common welfare, they are going to be cut loose soon.

Should we all be based on a subsistence economy, so be it.

They are not preppers. They pick up the phone and call the power company.

They are the most dependent of all. When the gov't shuts down they will be begging with those previously on food stamps.

We're being hit on all fronts...Dollar becoming worth less and less, working people out of work or lucky to have part time jobs, as government for 30 years rolled out the red carpet for a conga-line of tens of millions of ignorant low wage laborers.

The party groupies and frauds told us free trade was good for us. When in reality government traded our sovereignty and dignity for cheap foreign labor as a replacement for the American middle class.

Then our representatives of this government go one step further, riding shotgun driving train loads of more future low wage laborers, free loaders and criminals, by the thousands as fast as they can.

No hurry, since no one has done anything about this for 30+ years.

All this while the same ruling elite gained control of the American medical/healthcare industry and every other industry.

This after fat corps worth uncountable billions spent the last 30 years shipping their companies off to Red China, for more dirt cheap labor....Free trade good....

Even the stupid had to know this would not end well.

The American population is being replaced by foreign low wage workers, who are easily led, easily appeased, kept happy and content with little government morsels, just to keep them in line.

In fact, Americans are subsidizing their own rapidly approaching demise.

Being quickly replaced by the easily controlled, easily appeased, who seldom question their overlords...

Is there anyone here who believes the super powerful, super wealthy ruling class elite did not know this would occur?

Anyone?

Study the interstates and by-passes with a tactical eye. 150 yards or so wide, no cover, fenced on both sides. Imagine it in Chicago, I-294, the Tristate Tollway, as a kill zone.

After a month, and the gangs have thinned each other out, when the Traitors start resorting to cannibalism, we wait... I would ask if we should trust them, with their history, their eagerness to have "their own" as President, when they want out. As far as any of the corrupt power structure, shoot on sight.

But there were also snipers picking off these snipers.

The whole western world was doomed to collapse as soon as it started down the socialist path (including the US)

The recent influx of illegals is just speeding up the process considerably.

Nothing can stop the fall now, it’s just a matter of when it will happen.
