In 1929 America was a place for self-reliant self-starters. There was no such thing as government welfare, food stamps and so called income tax credits that supplemented income rather than take money from underemployed workers.
Americans were able to deal with deprivation and knew how to live off the land. Today Americans would simply starve.
Cutting off money to the people government turned into totally dependent and helpless leaches will prove bloody. These people will resort to violence when their demands for entitlements fall on deaf ears.
Today we have millions of Americans addicted to expensive illegal narcotic drugs. They can be counted upon to give us a crime wave like we’ve never imagined.
The only growth industry I envision is private security and small arms sales. Will we as a people learn self-reliance and how to work together as a result of hard times?
Will charity return to replace government handouts? I don’t see a wartime economy improving things since we’ve been at war for several years.
The only salvation for America is to defeat Communism and Socialism. God help us all.
