America The Monster
From 'escapeamerica.com magazine'
"America has become a monster and you are its next meal…
There was an old (now) song by Steppenwolfe of this name, i.e.,
“America the Monster” and as I began to consider the nature of this
country’s government …well, it seemed appropriate.
That said, America has become a monster. Like Goya’s mythical portrait
it devours its own children, 1 in 100 are convicts, education becomes
more and more expensive and thus exclusive, employment becomes scarcer
and less well paid, ”social safety net programs” expand, without
solving the problems, and it feels free to lay waste whatever sections
of the world it desires to . Been in Iraq for almost a decade and show
no signs of leaving Afghanistan. Not to mention the “bill” for all
Ah, the “bill”. Well, the Government doesn’t have to worry about that,
does it? After all that part of the fun and games will be delivered to
us, you and me…and our great grandchildren. And such a bill! No one
can even guess what it will come to – no one. But some of us will pay
it. Of course, it won’t be called “the bill”. Oh no. It will be called
Taxes. Increased taxes? Devalued currency? The joys of having an
unaccountable monster in charge of our futures!
Some will say that it cannot happen – not here. To them I would say,
just wait a bit. Remember that income taxes were supposed to be only
temporary and never to exceed 2% of income. Yes, and your check is in
the mail. But, I hear them say, the Law forbids such. I would say to
them: The Law forbids nothing – if it is re-written (as it has been
before) and if it is re-interpreted (as it has been before) to
permit…even mandate such (as has been done before). Ah, what of a Law
that has become only a way for those who desire to re-distribute
wealth to do so “legally”?
So, we come to a point of decision: Do we allow all that we have to be
devoured by this monster? Or do we try to save some bit of it for our
own use? You know, retirement and the need, even then, to eat and have
a roof over our heads? Are we to be, as so many ‘round the world are,
looking for a safe currency that will retain some of its value in
years to come? And a safe haven for our bit of fortune, as well as
ourselves? These would seem to our choices from all that the news from
Congress and the world financial markets would have us believe.
Ah well, perhaps if we just “close our eyes and click our heels
together three times, while repeating…” no, that’s to get back to
Kansas, isn’t it? Well, we left Kansas a long time ago I’m afraid.
However, we can get to somewhere much better than Kansas – if we try.
It does take planning and forethought but that is why there is Escape
from America. As you are reading this world class E-zine it would seem
you are concerned, rightly so, about this monster. But, will you do
something or just keep clicking your heels and wondering where Toto
is? Choice is yours – I have made mine, some time back.
It is up to us to decide that it is time to go. Time to go before we,
like so many before us in other nations, have to go with what we are
allowed to carry. The plight of the Jews of Germany and Eastern
Europe, after WWI and in the 1930’s The Cubans after Castro. The
Chinese and Mao? Hmmm, the list could go on. Will it include you,
along with the Armenians? Shall we be reduced to “portable wealth”?
Read that as diamonds we can carry in our rectums or sew into our
children’s clothing or dolls. Is that to be our future? Remember, no
one wanted to accept those refugees of the 1930’s – what makes us
think anyone will be more willing to accept us? Do you recall the
warnings of the Euro-countries, during the talked of exodus of
Americans, during Iraq-2? No one wanted to accept “us” then. Not even
Canada. Do you believe they would be any more willing if times became
such as to necessitate real expatriation?
Consider the differing circumstances of the “average” Czarist
Aristocrat of 1920 and those of Crown Prince Yusapov. Yusapov had been
exiled, by the Czar, and allowed to keep that part of his fortune he
had previously moved to France and Switzerland. Keep in mind that
delightful word previously. What about the others? Well, for the most
part they drove taxis, waited tables and became … “Ladies of certain
virtue”. Shanghi was replete with its “houses of former Aristos”, what
a future to contemplate …as our own?
Now it doesn’t have to be quite like the above. Weren’t there lots of
Cuban Attorney’s who came to USA and did quite well – as shoe
salesmen? Hmmm? Yes, quite so.
Here comes that nasty but needful concept: Planning and (here it is)
previously deposited funds. However, these funds must be such and in
such form as to assure that the sticky fingers of government cannot
reach out and confiscate them. As the Nazi’s , Russian Soviets and
Chinese Communists did with accounts and holdings they could identify.
Are there ways to secure our fortunes and thus our futures from
government as well as others? Yes. Are they legal? Yes, as of now. But
those ways are going to close and then…, ah then, then any who attempt
such will have “committed a crime” (the crime of thinking the money
belonged to you?) and they and their assets will be ceased.
For now there are still ways to secure our freedom and our financial
futures. How long this will remain the case only our fearless, because
unaccountable, leaders may say. But it shan’t be long.
In the pages of EFAM you can find companies who can and will help you
to secure your personal and financial future. Other companies can show
you the way to a better and more pleasant place to retire to. For now
these and second passports remain available – for now. However, who
may say when the monster will become hungrier? Perhaps glance your way
and decide that your financial vehicle would make a toothsome dainty?
All, of course, in the name of “saving”…something or other. But,
devoured nonetheless, America the Monster? Yes. Now, will you stay
around to be, eventually, put on the menu?
The choice is yours…for now;)
Those who are awake are the seers, those who sleepwalk are the
slaves…Stay tuned for Part II of Swiss Uncle Timmie Rudizuli as he
looks to the USA…next week!"
