ONE Big Reason to Get Prepared
This came to me from Lee Bellinger's Ready-for-anything report. He promotes smart strategies for dangerous times.. He takes a strong stand and backs up his position with suggestions we can take NOW to be safe … I could not have said it better and so pass in on in it's entirety.
President Obama recently told his supporters to put on their marching shoes, and a whole lot of angry unemployed people responded!
Over the weeks, the "Occupy Wall Street" protests have spread from New York to Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C., and other major cities.
This is NOT the revolution we need!
The "movement" so far is a muddled one, but it has already attracted a significant segment of extremists. Some are angry about banking industry bailouts. Others are upset about climate change. Still others are enraged by high unemployment rates and what they perceive as a growing disparity between rich and poor. And, nearly every one of them blames capitalism and businesspeople for their woes.
No matter the message, it's the Big Brother solutions this mob is proposing – and their increasingly violent actions – that you and I need to stand up and take notice of.
These protesters want more government regulations. They're calling for a full-on revolution to change the very foundation of our political and economic system. And, many of them would be more satisfied to see the well-off knocked down a peg, rather than seeing their own situation improve.
If this mob gets its way, people like you and I will become bigger targets of the government. I'm talking much higher taxes, larger obstacles to creating jobs, more regulations, and more petty laws. We may become physical targets, too, on the receiving end of death threats, intimidation, and mob violence.
Accelerating Toward a Breakdown
I don't know if Occupy Wall Street will be the spark that sets off widespread social chaos. I do know violent movements have started from less. But if it is, expect such results as roving mobs and looted grocery stores, overwhelming the containment capacity of local law enforcement.
This is one more reminder that every family needs to do three things, starting right now. (Hopefully you've already started, but NOW is the time to complete them or review)
Growing Unrest in the Big Cities Means Big Trouble
for Those Who Aren't Prepared
Occupy Wall Street began as a call for 20,000 people to gather as a group and remain on Wall Street for at least two months. Their point? Well, they're still working on that!
But one thing they do agree on is that they have a whole slew of perceived entitlements that aren't being fulfilled. They have the right to food, shelter, education, a good job, medical care, and recreation that they enjoy. And, if they can't afford it… well, people like you and me either need to foot the bill or guarantee them a job with a high enough wage that they can live in the manner in which they want to become accustomed.
These outlandish demands should have you worried for two reasons.
First, pay close attention to the sense of entitlement coming from these people. They think they're owed a life of comfort. They've so greatly expanded the meaning of the word "right" as to render it meaningless. To these people, a right is anything they want and feel they've been deprived of. A right is especially a right when someone who has worked harder or smarter than they have possesses something they want, but don't have the means of acquiring.
Eventually, when people gather in a mob like this, they react violently if they don't get their way. It's already happening. Protesters have rushed police officers, attempted to storm office buildings and defecated on police cars. As the violence grows, people like you and me become their targets.
Second, think back in history to the widespread protests of the sixties. I'm not talking about the civil rights protests that brought about a reasonable change in the way people think and interact. I'm talking about the pro-socialist protests that helped shape U.S. policy for decades. We're still living with the damage today.
