"It can't happen here" is number one on the list of famous last words."
- David Crosby


Welcome to the NEW Amerika

Be honest with yourself:

Assuming you were born in 1940 and were given a 1940 US$100 savings bond that by 2008, would buy just 0.71 cents worth of goods and services, [source http://www.measuringworth.com/ ] what would you have thought?

If you were a Brit and was given, in 1970 at the time of your birth, a gift of GBP 1,216.72; and today it's only worth GBP105! How would you feel?

If eight years ago I were to have told you that the most Draconian, anti-civil liberty and anti-privacy laws [think Patriot Acts I and II] would be enacted, would you have believed me?

If I were to have told you five years ago that General Motors would be forced to file for bankruptcy, would you have thought that possible?

At the time of your birth, would you have believed that by the time you'd read this missive you'd owe, as your share of the US national debt, a whopping $37,604.81 or more?

Do you realize that as of July 8th, 2009, America's national debt is US$11,526,218,014,516.92. The estimated population of the United States is 306,509,128, so each citizen's share of this debt equals $37,604.81.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of $3.88 billion per day since September 28, 2007! [Source: http://www.brillig.com/debt_clock/ ]. That's a staggering amount isn't it?

Concerned? You should be, because there is no end in sight for further increases in the national debt and YOU, your children, your grandchildren and your children's children's children for generations to come, will continue to be obligated to pay off this ever increasing debt.

No one, no government can, ever has or ever will be able to, continue to spend more than they bring in. Sooner or later the axe will fall and doom will befall the scattergood. The axe has just begun to fall, and people worldwide are paying the price for your government's prodigally of you're and you're children's finances.

If you handled your affairs as your government does, you would have been bankrupt years ago; put in jail for failure to disclose true and factual reports and filings and for refusing to adhere to financial audits! The US govt refuses to have an honest audit of its finances, stating that there would be "Economic Collapse If The Fed is Audited." See - Bernanke Threatens Economic Collapse If Fed Audited at this link.

Now ask yourself have you benefited from this horrific debt? In the words of former President Ronald Reagan, are you better off today than you were four years ago? Do you have more or less privacy, rights and freedoms than you had previously, say ten years ago?

We're witnessing the decline of America. Much like Great Britain since then Prime Minister Winston Churchill cabled then US President Roosevelt; "over to you,"during 1944, Amerika is rapidity becoming a police state, as well as a socialist nanny state where it is and will continue to tell you how to live, what to do or not to do all under penalty.

You and only you can answer the above questions and, hopefully, thought provoking comments. However we can make this precursory for the next ten years; By 2019 US citizens and residents will face a further horrific devaluation of today's harbinger US dollar or its successor.

It is imperative that you have a large portion of your wealth offshore in a safe location, most of which should probably be held in physical gold before it's too late to do so. Within a few years US citizens will NOT be allowed to remit funds outside of the USA.

Dual nationality will not be allowed for any US citizen within ten years! It is not just imperative, but it's mandatory that you have a second or third nationality and passport today as an insurance policy.

Ownership of gold, like during the 1930's, will no longer be allowed for US citizens or residents.

Your civil liberties, privacy and personal freedoms will continue to erode at a atrocious rate, so much so that within 5 to 10 years the "nine to fiver's" of the world will have finally been woken up only to realize theirs has been stolen. It will be too late by then.

Civil liberties, personal freedoms and privacy as you knew it, will cease to exist for all persons within the US, Canada, the UK and most of the Western world.

Some of today's third world countries will become tomorrow's NEW privacy and freedom frontiers, offering the last haven for freedom and privacy seekers.

So in our parting words for this missive, you really need to do something and do something fast.

See you next issue
