What is the Increase in Crime Telling You? Is it Time for Direct Democracy?

As developed (bankrupt) governments take more desperate measures to confiscate money from citizens to maintain their power and perks, real capital for growth will continue to erode, dragging down the economy and incomes.  The resulting decline in tax revenue will prompt the govt to print more money to pay the bills, further eroding the purchasing power of citizens. The inability of citizens to put food on the table will continue to drive more crime and the growth of the crime-prevention business (including the “public-private” prison business).

There are many examples of the social unrest and crime that is caused by  economies struggling with high debt and youth unemployment, and below are just a recent few:

Greece becoming new Kosovo as youth jobless hits 65%

– The number of “sliders” (and other brazen criminals) will increase as unemployment starts to rise again by 2016.

Copper Wire Thefts on the Rise in US.

Thieves stealing pets then selling them for quick cash is on the rise.

Egyptian forces open fire, move in to clear Cairo protests.

Govt always sees the crisis as an opportunity to bolster their power to reverse the trend, instead of possibly realizing they are the cause of the trend. Their predictable attempts to play God and economic engineers will only make the problems worse and increase the crime and revolts.

If politicians could ever consider themselves as the source of the problem, then we might have a chance. Unfortunately, they never will until they end up imploding the system, which produces a unpredictibale new govt that’s born from revolution.

Imagine a world of NO tax on income and a govt that only spends what it is able to collect in consumption taxes. Imagine if politicians were constrained by term-limits, and had to live within the laws they pass. The simplest of changes would unleash the creativity that made this county great…and we the citizenry can demand it!

ClimateGate Coming to Florida

NPR, an establishment lapdog for the Left, is hosting a Speaker Series on “Climate Change in Florida” on Thurs in Orlando. I think I may have a few questions for the three “expert” panelists, who are all journalists – which I guess does constitute a legitimate source in their fake news world. …

Ancient Global Warming

Scientific America had an interesting article and video describing how the Mediterranean Sea was last filled with water from the Atlantic Ocean. I wonder who the ancient inhabitants around the Mediterranean Sea blamed for the falling and rising waters? With the recent evidence of global cooling becoming undeniable, the propagandists changed …

The Russian Uranium Deal and Spain’s Coup D’etat

The two current events that most symbolize govt corruption and repression are, not surprisingly, absent from the headlines. After all, the last thing the govt and their lackeys in the media can afford is for people to know the truth, and the facts surrounding the Catalan independence vote and the selling …
