Title should read: Hitting Bottom Matt Archbold lays it out
Or a better title: “A Country Divided.”
He is bound to be a prepper. Everyone should be.
Great article.....this is how I see it too.
This election was always about who would be in charge of picking up the pieces, not how to avoid hitting the bottom. We went over the cliff when Barry was elected. I’m amazed that we didn’t hit the bottom sooner but who knows, it may even be another year or two.
The American electorate has finally turned out the last lights in Ronald Reagan’s shining city on the hill. We have abandoned that city to creep down the hill to join the unwashed in the mud. And as the article says, the “education” establishment, the mass media and blatant vote fraud will ensure that the city stays dark. Maybe Joe Farah is right - God has abandoned us and the end is near.
wrong. just because something hits bottom, does not mean it gets better.
a druggie hits up too much, looses everything. what usually happens is death by OD. doesn’t get better, gets dead.
surely, detroit has hit bottom or getting close. anyone see any signs of live there?
Greece? anything getting better in Greece?
most of the time, hitting bottom just means the end, and nothing gets better.
Yeah, it’s a great article ...
Except when the wanters arrive on your door step and ask “... Can we dance whiff yo bank accounts?”
Then the happy bubble surrounding you gets breached...
Long may it last until that point........
This fellow is an optimist.
This fellow is an optimist.
Indeed! He’s a believer. :-)
I’m a believer. In God.
Magical thinking solves nothing. Most druggies hit the wall, and keep going. Many destroy the lives of their children and family in the process.
The myth that after you hit the rock bottom, you can get better ignores the reality that most who hit rock bottom splatter.
Im a believer. In God.
So is Matt Archbold.
There was NO “magical thinking” in the article.
His belief in God doesn't mean that he isn't overly optimistic.
The bottom line is, it's likely to get ugly, and there isn't a lot of hope of recovery. At least not in our lifetimes. Nations rise and they fall. With the re-election of the anti-Christ, it seems that a majority of those who voted cast their lot with Satan. We'll see how that turns out.
I agree with Mr. Archbold about turning toward taking care of one’s family. That's what I'm doing, too.
But I have no delusions - as things fall to pieces, as Mr. Archbold describes it - there is nothing to guarantee that some of us, perhaps many or most of us, might not be hit, and even killed by the shrapnel.
I hope for the best, but the worst is far, far worse than Mr. Archbold describes.
As I said, this fellow is an optimist.
Having read Mr. Archbold’s blog for a few years, I can assure you that he has a good idea of just how ugly things can get. He also knows that God is bigger than the worst of it...and that, ultimately, we spend eternity with that God who loves us with a merciful and greater love than we can even imagine.
Those who know history understand great periods of horror. Many of us, including Mr. Archbold, understand that we are presently heading in the direction of great horror. However, we should not lose our faith in Him who cares for us...nor our sense of humor. For some reason today, I recalled the story of Saint Lawrence, an early Christian martyr who “was tied on top of an iron grill over a slow fire that roasted his flesh little by little, but Lawrence was burning with so much love of God that he almost did not feel the flames. In fact, God gave him so much strength and joy that he even joked. Turn me over, he said to the judge. Im done on this side! And just before he died, he said, Its cooked enough now. Then he prayed that the city of Rome might be converted to Jesus and that the Catholic Faith might spread all over the world.”
We understand that we may be heading to the greatest horror the world has yet to see...but God IS with those who trust in Him.
...and God WILL bring good out of all of it!
