Is It Time to Leave America, While You Still Can?

Is It Time to Leave America, While You Still Can?

The Common Sense Show

One prominent talk show host is telling his listeners to get out of the country because the Denver Post is reporting that there are 200,000 Russian troops in America. I have previously reported on government documents which demonstrate that FEMA reached a bilateral agreement with Russia to bring in 15,000 Russian troops. I also believe that there are Russian sleeper cells located throughout America based upon reports from Russian defectors and eyewitnesses such as Dr. Susan Helman of Gatlinburg, TN. But to leave the country based on the erroneous reports of a talk show host would be a gross mistake.

The Russian media immediately interviewed me after I reported on this story in an attempt to discredit me and cover their true intentions. However, there is no report from the Denver Post claiming 200,000 Russian troops are in America. There will be no direct military invasion of the United States until some other things occur such as a series of false flag attacks, declaration of martial law and the use of foreign troops (e.g. Russia, China) to quell any civil disturbances following the false flag attacks or following a currency collapse. Following the complete subjugation of the American people, there could be an invasion of the US by Russia and China if WWIII were to break out. But leaving the country for the hysterical claim of 200,000 Russians ready to invade in a moments notice, would prove to be a fool’s errand.

Are there other reasons to leave the United States and take up residency abroad? There does appear to be several valid reasons to do so. For the time being, put aside your English/Russian dictionary as we process the reasons for possibly wanting to expatriate.

Many Have Already Left

An expatriate, who has left America for the greener pastures of Germany, has written to me over a dozen times telling me to get out of America while I still can. I freely admit, that on the balance sheet, the reasons to leave outweigh the reasons to stay. And the reasons to move our children away from the growing tyranny in this country are even more numerous. However, our enemy calls themselves the New World Order for a reason. It may be possible to move to a place like Norway and get some temporary relief, but in reality, you would only be staying one step ahead of the burning bridge.

Last year over a 155,000 Americans expatriated to foreign countries, mostly for economic reasons. I have bad news for these people.You expats may have temporarily escaped high taxes and over regulation from the federal government, however, when, and not if, the dollar collapses, all foreign currencies will collapse as well and you will be trapped in a foreign land. I do, however, agree that there are some valid reasons, at least on the surface for leaving.

Do It For The Kids

At this point in time, about half of all recent college graduates are working at jobs that do not even require a college degree. The number of Americans in the 16 to 29 year old age bracket with a job declined by 18 percent between 2000 and 2010. Incomes for U.S. households led by someone between the ages of 25 and 34 have fallen by about 12 percent after you adjust for inflation since the year 2000. In the United States today, 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees. One poll discovered that 29 percent of all Americans in the 25 to 34 year old age bracket are still living with their parents. Overall, approximately 25 million American adults are living with their parents according to Time Magazine.

America is no longer the land of opportunity as the United States is not even in the top ten. In fact, the United States only ranks 20th in terms of overall gross pay! There are very sound economic reasons to look at when deciding on whether you should leave the country. Young adults who are degreed and/or skilled in fields such as engineering or information technology skills, are really wasting their time by working in the United States. Eight of the world’s ten highest-paying countries for information technology (IT) managers are in Western Europe, according to a new survey by Mercer Human Resource Consulting. The survey found that Swiss managers are paid the most, followed by those in Germany and Denmark. In fact, IT management is another field where U.S. workers fail to crack the top ten in income, the United States ranks 14th in IT management compensation. Even debt ridden Spain, Italy and Greece pay their IT managers more than what Americans earn on average.

 Employment

If there is a valid reason for leaving the country, the unemployment rates would seem to be a compelling reason. Unfortunately, the public does not know what the true unemployment rate is in America because the Department of Labor plays games with the numbers. For example, if you hold a real estate license, and even if you have never sold any property, you are considered to be employed by the Federal government. If your unemployment insurance expires, it is assumed that you have found employment, even if you have not. This is referred to as the discouraged worker category.

The “Alternate Unemployment Rate” more accurately reflects the current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were eliminated from official existence by the Federal government back in 1994. That estimate is added to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes the previously short-term discouraged workers.

The “U-3″ unemployment rate is the monthly headline number. The U-6 unemployment rate is the BLS broadest unemployment measure, “including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work part-time because they cannot find full-time employment” as this group would be categorized as the underemployed. When all figures are combined, the Shadow Stats calculations are staggering as the unemployment and underemployment rate is approaching 24%!

However, I strongly feel that you are only delaying the inevitable by leaving. We are not just going to see an American economic collapse, we are going to witness a global collapse.

America’s Economy Could Soon Collapse

Employment issues aside, America only has to look at three economic indicators to know that we are in a lot of trouble. The budget deficit is $17 trillion dollars, unfunded (partially or otherwise) mandated social programs constitutes another $222 trillion dollars and the credit swap derivatives total between $1 quadrillion dollars to $1.5 quadrillion dollars.

When we look at Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and all the government programs that we all take for granted, the price tag is a whopping $222 trillion dollars. These numbers are going to be exacerbated and grow exponentially because the bulk of the baby boomers are entering retirement age. Even if we took every single penny that the federal government takes in and devote it to paying off these social programs, it would take 111 years to pay off this debt.

In the United States, credit swap derivatives created national debt totals of over one quadrillion dollars. That is one thousand trillion dollars! The entire GDP of the planet is estimated at $66 trillion dollars. And somehow, in the infinite wisdom of Congress in 2008, we falsely and naively believed that a $750 billion transfer of wealth (i.e., Bailout #1) was magically going to save the economy and the collective futures of the American middle class. In short, the debt created by futures speculation is approximately 16 times greater than the sum total of the entire wealth on the planet! And we think we are going to climb out of this? We could fund 1,000 bailouts and the eventual outcome will be the same, slavery by debt.

In no civilized country in the world do the banks have the right to steal money from citizen depositors. However, in America, this is already being accomplished as ex-Goldman Sachs CEO and ex-senator and ex-governor, Jon “the Don” Corzine, stole 1.2 billion dollars from secured deposits from MF Global, lied to congress about his actions and today is enjoying the fruits of his thievery. Let’s not forget that the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals who just ruled that banks can steal the money of its depositors and it is legal! This would have been a SHTF moment in every other Western country, but Americans are taking this grand theft on their backsides, sipping a beer and bemoaning the performance of their favorite NFL team on this Super Bowl Sunday.

I have chronicled in a recent article that JP Morgan Chase and HSBC are making it almost impossible to wire money out of their banks into overseas accounts. Further, the IMF has announced plans to tax all bank accounts to the tune of 10% and that is just for starters. Can America be far behind? And the rich are getting richer at the expense of the middle class.

Over 50 percent of all stocks and bonds are owned by just 1 percent of the U.S. population. Additionally,  Treasury Secretary Lew is borrowing against select Federal retirement accounts. And add to these grim statistics, we have only the 51st longest life span despite spending the most money. Our kids attend schools which are ranked last in the modern world. Searching for better opportunities does make sense in light of these statistics.

Civil Liberties

Well, we may not have our health and we may not have our wealth, but at least we have our freedoms, don’t we? Nothing could be further from the truth. Our local police forces are being federalized and incidences of unwarranted police brutality are skyrocketing.

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit Democracy Index 2011, the United States is tied with Romania for forty-ninth in civil liberties. Several countries such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Norway are tied for first.

With the Patriot Acts, the NDAA and several other draconian pieces of legislation designed to protect us from the boogey men we call terrorists, we have lost Habeas Corpus, we are losing our free speech rights to the United Nations and every form of due process that we once cherished under our Constitution. And if you don’t like the unfolding criminal enterprise system which suddenly appeared before our collective eyes, the bankers have rolled out a technocratic police state which would make Stalin and Hitler envious. Both the police state and impending martial law are bolstered by the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased 2.2 billion rounds of high tech bullets engraved with the names of citizens who dare to oppose this tyranny! The Constitution has been destroyed and thrown on to the garbage pile of history. And only in tinhorn dictatorships and communist countries do we find this kind of criminal enterprise flourishing!

Where the Rubber Meets the Road

I have personally known a FEMA retiree and his family who have left their home for a self-contained community with like-minded alphabet soup agency personnel in order to protect their families from what is coming. Additionally, Doug Hagmann’s DHS insider contact painted a very grim picture of the deadly martial law crackdown that is coming. Same stories, different venues.  If you believe that a false flag attack is in our near future. And if you believe that brutal martial law, complete with gun confiscation, was going to take place and if you think that FEMA camps and mass executions of political undesirables was going to occur, then these would be some very valid reasons for leaving this country.

In a later article, I will expand on these thoughts as well as examine some very compelling reasons for staying in the United States through thick and thin.
