What happened in the Roman Empire was that, at a certain point, rich land owners bought out small farmers throughout Italy, and these ex-farmers moved to Rome to become the first urban proletariat that the Roman state had to support with the grain dole. In effect, you had a huge number of people who were no longer able to support themselves.
We are now witnessing the modern version of this with the US government providing everyone who makes less than 75k with “free” money. Unfortunately, nothing is really free. There will be consequences.
More “Liberal” Nonsense
In the end, it’s about the experiences you have had.
What do you do if you really dislike the direction the new “liberals” are taking the country, and get mad every time you read any headline in the media? You really just start to turn away from it all, just totally ignore the bigger picture. You can’t do anything about it yourself anyway, so what’s the point in allowing it to make you crazy? Apathy takes over. The more aggressive response would be to turn up stakes and go and live somewhere other than the US, but that means you have no more subsidized healthcare if under Medicare.
Border With Mexico
The Dems do something asinine, then call it an achievement, and the liberal press applauds. That’s the new world order we have now.
Biden’s immigration “policy” has created an insane situation with our border with Mexico, a situation that the Trump administration was finally trying to get a handle on after decades of ignoring the growing illegal-alien problem that no politician had the guts to tackle. Now things will go from bad to much worse with this nutty open-borders concept pushed by our very foolish president. The US is definitely in decline. It’s just going to get worse from here. The lunatics are in charge.
Comparing Trump to Biden, would you rather have an egomaniac or a fool in charge of the country? I go with the egomaniac. But we are about to see what a fool can do to us.
US is becoming a country I don’t even recognize and clearly don’t agree with. Is it time to consider moving somewhere else? Would that somewhere else be better?
Look at it this way. Your situation isn’t THAT bad! You could be shorting Bitcoin right now.
An arguably already broke federal government goes on an out-of-control spending binge with this 1.9T giveaway, with all kinds of political payola stuffed in. This will not end well.
After the initial buzz from all that “free” money, there’s going to be a terrible hangover. Someone has to pay for all this. That someone is YOU. Like the joke about the people playing poker — if you don’t know who the sucker at the table is, that sucker is you.
