Lately I've been hearing comments regarding Russia and China trying desperately to deflate the US dollar and abolish it's
post WW2 monopoly with the petrodollar. Financial warfare is nothing new to anyone and should be a given in this day and age. But when you mix in the
thoughts of a secret government or banking society, at the reins of control, it adds a certain twist.
There are some here on
ATS that believe these 'secret' organizations would not allow the US to fail and create a global war to divert its collapse. Conversely, there are
others that think this is exactly what TPTB want, the USA to reach critical financial failure, in order to fulfill some other nefarious purpose, such
as assimilation into a bigger global system - NWO.
Either of these results are bad for us the people and many go off on pages of rant filled hate toward these 'secret plans' and the mysterious
benefactors that hide behind them. But really are we not that different from how they think?
What I'm getting at here is, if every person in America had a choice or a vote which was to going to be used to ultimately decide whether we face
global war(WW3) or be financially destitute, what would you choose?
WW3 can be assumed just what you've all come to fear in a modern post nuclear era. I suspect nukes would be used, who buys a gun not to use it when
needed most? I'm sure our governments wouldn't have spent billions on these weapons to have them collect dust when the time comes. Cities will be
destroyed, loved ones will die and we may not even win.
As for financially destitute conditions, I'm thinking along the lines of the complete devalue of the dollar, wall street crash, banks fail and that
wonderful 1.14% something in FDIC insurance will make most penniless. Food, taxes, housing, mortgages, payroll, utilities everything becomes out of
reach for the 99% general society. Everything will change, I even have a hard time trying to visualize this scenario and how to maneuver if it
happens. Will we lose our houses, our cars if everyone is in the same boat?
So what would you vote for, War or Poverty?
My reasons for asking this question is that I had a very different self impression until I asked myself this. This is just a thought experiment of
sorts, so please elaborate in any way you feel fit.
I hope this choice is not one we will ever have to make, AB
