Arkansas Resolution Would Join Other States In Chastising The Feds

Jason Tolbert reports that some Arkansas house members have introduced a resolution which protests federal over reach. More than 20 states have introduced similar resolutions, and in two or three states they look close to passing them.

I hope DC gets the message that there are a lot of people unhappy with the way they are doing business out here. Right now, they are buying a lot of people's "loyalty" because they send out a lot of checks. What happens when the checks start bouncing, or are nearly worthless due to a dollar collapse?

I am amazed at how fast things seen to be falling apart. In my career field we had more work than agents to do the work last October, now a lot of agents are sitting home. I don't see it taking to many more years for the federal government to go bankrupt and at that point I think a revolution will take place.
Maybe the post you put up a few weeks back by the Russian saying this country is breaking up into 4 parts may have some credibility.

I don't think those will be the lines, but the principle has facts to support it.

And hang in there friend.

If those aren't the lines, care to share your thoughts? I believe like you that we are headed to to very tough times in this country. I even have a few friends that are thinking of moving out of this country. What do you think when people who are intelligent believe its time to move? Is it going to get that bad?
Glen Beck had a good show on Friday discussing where this country could be headed. If you get a chance try and watch a replay.
By the way, I am headed to Montana March 4th. Things are picking up but slowly. I am interested in your thoughts on where this country is headed in the not to distant future.

I believe the country SHOULD divide roughly along the blue state / red state lines.

This is not an argument that republicans are the good guys.

It is an argument that the divide is essentially a cultural divide and that the two factions would be much happier having things ran their way.

The blue state would continue the slide to communism that is currently taking place in all 50 states. At least the red states could be salvaged (but would require real leaders - not huckafrauds!).

I don't care for the liberals, and I'm not very happy with the Red State partisans either.

I agree with the Russian: we'll need at least four parts.

This could take years to unwind, the dollar will be destroyed first and right now it still appears strong. If it happens fast enough, it could precipitate a sudden collapse, which would be bad short term, but maybe cause less long term pain.

I see California as being basically ungovernable once the collapse hits. I am talking "Mad Max" out there. The "Heartland" states may find a way to stay together, leaving most of the NE and some of the Great Lakes States to form a coalition.

Worst case scenario, the decline is slow and force is used to hold people with no common culture together in order to extract their wealth to repay the debt being run up. The US sells pieces of itself off and we stay "unified" but impoverished and controlled by foreigners.

I see most of the US military as being willing to turn on the population. I am sorry to say that and hope I am wrong. For most of them though, it will just be the way they can feed their families while the rest of us without a government job will be bankrupt.

Should things not go the FEDS way, I fear that they will call INTERNATIONAL troops out to suppress the population. In other words, if our military won't turn enough of their guns on us they will bring in UN "peace keepers" who will. The elites who control global money and banking will want us as an intact entity so they will have someone to collect from.

What our state leaders should do is make contingency plans, not to rebel or leave the union, but simply to be prepared if Washington is suddenly helpless.
