Default Is It Too Late? Have We Lost Our Freedom & Our Economy?

We stand on the precipice of total Economic depression.
Guest on even Fox news are starting to discuss it.

Groceries, and gasoline are starting to ease up.
Our cultural interaction has been changed perhaps forever, and blue state governors are FURTHER finishing off their already bankrupt states.
Sadly, even here, there are those that have no foresight in the inevidible economic collapse it is causing and resist the obvious truth.

Walking around in stores, where unidentifiable masked shoppers shuffle from isle to isle not talking, or even looking at each other.
FEAR...WORKS!
FEAR...DIVIDES!

Criminals released from jail to "protect them" from the virus.
Working middle class folks taking their place in the jails, for the crime of working.

Democrats want trillions more of nonexistent money to bailout their already failing economies.

Hope I'm wrong, but all out Depression, here we come, ready or not.

I believe we're being forced to flush our middle class savings down the toilet (akin to horded paper). NO ONE is going to come to our aid when savings are GONE. I believe it is has become an all out Five Alarm Fire over LIBERTY or death. You cannot be assured that what you hear from televised masked men is even what they are actually saying.

The Governor of Florida, at least, received some good press in the NATIONAL REVIEW for his handling of the situation to date, even though DeSantis is continuously in the cross hairs of the FNN's, which he embraces as a "good thing", because Florida must be doing it right for them to have their undies in such a bunch.

Empire mentality. Obama and the Clintons wanted to be the first Emperors. There once was another Republic that went down that path. And we have been compared to them many times. Can we call it a communism or
a monarchy? Like Reagan referred to them all as, evil Empires.

Well Richard, Texas governor Abbott "seems" to be trying to let us go back to living, but states like Michigan, New Jersey , New York, ect are dragging us down with full support of much of their populations.

The bathtub drain effect. Swim as hard as you might, but your getting closer and closer, to the drain.

Since this whole thing started I've been saving as much money as possible just in case. With the rate government keeps printing money I'll need as much as possible as they keep devaluing it. This whole thing sickens me watching Americans happily let the government jam us up the arse.

Liberal Logic 101:
Americans shall be required to submit to a background check to exercise a right already guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment while any foreigner shall be allowed into America without submitting to a background check.

I have not given anything up either. But. Big butt. Iíve lost a lot and know so... You donít have to give up anything to lose in a big way. As Donald Trump would say. Believe Me.

Make America great. Steel for the wall so we donít need cannons to shoot these turds back across the border...

I am not one of those in NY dragging the country down. There are many good people here you would want on your side, we're just not the majority.

This state of chaos makes me think of a song as sung by " Bachman, Turner, Overdrive ".
That song would be " You ain't seen nothin' yet " so hang on boys I'm thinking it'll get worse before it gets better...

Agreed, and some will taunt us all the way to the poor house.
