America: Designed By Geniuses Now Run By Idiots!

To hear the “officials” tell it, everything is fine. The recovery is underway. Housing is recovering. Stocks are at multi-year highs.
But let’s check in with some actual Americans, instead of government mouthpieces…
Things are so fine in America that nearly one-third of registered voters think an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties in the next few years, according to a Fairleigh Dickinson poll.
And while that’s the extreme scenario, there are many more examples of a larger majority of Americans dealing with economic pain or losing faith in “the system.”
It’s certainly revealing that the most frequently used medications by people aged 18-44 are antidepressants. In total, more than one in eight Americans are on antidepressants, and their use has grown 400% in the last two decades.
Everything’s going good, right?
So good that the New York Times reported:
Suicide rates among middle-aged Americans have risen sharply in the past decade, prompting concern that a generation of baby boomers who have faced years of economic worry and easy access to prescription painkillers may be particularly vulnerable to self-inflicted harm.
More people now die of suicide than in car accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
From 1999 to 2010, the suicide rate among Americans ages 35 to 64 rose by nearly 30 percent, to 17.6 deaths per 100,000 people, up from 13.7. The suicide rate for middle-aged men was 27.3 deaths per 100,000, while for women it was 8.1 deaths per 100,000.
Certainly there’s a generational theme there as well. Carefree boomers who grew up in the suburbs, embraced youth and free love, and expected flush accounts into and throughout retirement are now having to live through a much different reality.
Everything’s going good, right?
Over 47 million Americans (one out of every six!) are on food stamps. That number has quadrupled in a decade. Over 54 million Americans are on Medicaid, up 60% since 2000. And nearly 9 million Americans are on disability insurance, up 70% since 2000.
In total, over 100 million Americans — one in three! — are on some form of welfare program administered by the Federal Government.
Everything’s going good, right?
Average student loan debt is now $24,300 per person for the 37 million Americans with outstanding balances. Nearly 60% of the people who owe on student loans are over 30 years old, and almost 20% of them are over 50 years old. Total student loan debt is now $1 trillion, more than credit card debt.
Total credit card debt is now $849 billion, or over $15,000 per household.
Total mortgage debt stands at $7.9 trillion.
Taken together, American consumers are more than $11.19 trillion in debt.
Everything’s going good, right?
A late-June survey by Bankrate.com found that 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Less than 25% have enough money to cover six months of expenses; about 50% have less than a three-month cushion; and 27% had no savings at all.
Another June survey by CashNetUSA found that 46% of Americans have less than $800 to their name.
It’s not hard to see why. Costs for things like food and education are up 144% on an inflation-adjusted basis since 1980, but median family income has only grown 8% in the same time, and is actually down over the past 14 years:
Everything’s going good, right?
I’m sure they were saying the same in Brazil, Turkey, Europe, Egypt, Ukraine and others before public riots broke out there. These aren’t third world countries. They are democratic nations where society has become fed up with the status quo.
When will Americans get fed up?
You Can Do It
I point out these things not to scare you, but to illustrate just how fragile our system has made you.
It’s set up for you to fail, not to succeed.
The good thing is that once you realize this, you can work on simply saying goodbye to the system.
You can refuse to participate in it. You can refuse to vote. You can refuse to eat poisoned foods. You can refuse to embrace commercialism and consumerism. You can choose to live within — rather than beyond — your means. You can move somewhere else.
You don’t have to have a financial adviser. You don’t have to buy a house. You don’t have to have a new car. You don’t have to keep up with the Joneses. And more than anything, you don’t have to be complacent.
Our government leaders are traitors for letting its own citizens and innocent citizens of other countries be deliberately killed by creating false wars for profit. There could never be a good reason for this barbaric death march. Of course many don’t see anything as they are so brainwashed and blind to see otherwise.
Our air, water, food, homes, clothing, furniture, and much more are tainted with toxic substances. Is it any surprise so many people are being diagnosed with serious ailments like cancer when the world we live in is awash of one big toxic environment?
You only have to do what’s right for you.
I can’t know exactly what’s right for you, however, knowing the truths will certainly help.
That’s for you to decide.
