Most of us know that over 50% of Americans receive some sort of benefits from the national government. It’s one of those nasty stats that sting when you hear it. It leaves a bad taste in your mouth when you taste. Even those receiving the money must feel it, too.
There are limits that the American worker can reach. They are limits that have to do with how much money they make, how much money the government can take and the type of life they live after the theft….er uh taxation. These are serious considerations and for a while they have been merely right wing conjecture. Now, all of a sudden, France of all places has reached that breaking point.
Over 100 people were injured and nearly 500 were arrested when the protests turned violent. To be clear these people were standing up for energy prices and taxes. There is a proposed 12 cent hike on diesel fuel that is the start of something smart French people are not happy about. It’s a climate change tax in the eyes of many but it comes at the worst time and its driven these rioters to the brink.
As we saw the rioting around the French capital we were merely getting a peak into America’s crystal ball. If Hillary Clinton were in office, we would no doubt be part of the climate accord and we too would be facing some sort of repercussions. We would be penalized for doing everything in our power to meet our current tax burden and live a good life after taxes.
One of the best first steps you can take is to consider personal self defense and a firearm. Consider building one like a Glock, using a polymer 80, as this offers insight on firearms that most others don’t have. Trust me, it goes a long way.
To the short sighted this can all sound like political posturing and conjecture. However, to the prepper it looks and sounds like the start of something terrible, and it is. Civility is but a wisp. It’s a thin veil that we have all decided to care for and protect. Lift that veil, toss it away and we will all be in grave danger.
