Mr. Buchanan is an accomplished and quite successful Prophet Of Doom who has been predicting for decades such as the article you linked. I passed through my “Buchanan Stage” awhile back, though I read him occassionaly as an example of what not to believe.
Btw, I have all of Mr. Buchanan’s books (except Right From The Beginning) and I have read them all at least 2 times very slowly. I read his The Death Of The West slowly all the way through several times during my “Buchanan Stage”, and all that in accompaniment with reading Mr. Mark Steyn’s America Alone. It is only by God’s grace that I did not commit suicide. /hysterical laughter
Nonetheless, I hold Mr. Buchanan in high regard as a Christian brother and note that he is magnificient on the Conservative side of the culture war. Mr. Steyn is also a good Conservative culture warrior, but I do not know if he is a Christian or not. I do know that he is a proud self-proclaimed “Prophet of Doom.”
With that kind of certainity and foresight you are sitting on a huge fortune. My advice: Sell everything you own and catch a plane to Los Vegas. Start in the MGM Grand and move on to Bally’s. You will have tens of millions of dollars tagged and bagged before they discover that you really can see into the future. Next I suggest Wall Street, once there, you will end up owning New York within a month.
(Note: I realize that you will not really go to Los Vegas and then on to Wall Street because even though you really can predict that “The future of the United States is Greece’s current reality”, you’re just not all that interested in making hundreds of millions of dollars.) /more hysterical laughter
If you are correct on your prophecy, I suggest you prepare for sustained global pandemonium.
The day the United States “looks similar to Greece, Spain, Iceland, Ireland, Italy” economically due to “Inflation, austerity” is the day your soft affluent luxury-ladden world will come to an end.
You will cease being interested in abstract speculations about stuff like anarchy and become tightly focused on more concrete realities like where your next meal is coming from.
If you think its dangerous to travel overseas using International Airports now, just wait till America’s economy (and military) looks like Greece.
Be sure to carefully examine the expiration dates on your food products and may I suggest Welcome: Rosland Capital? I’m told they have really good gold. /grin
