I'm not trying to start a revolution here, just hear me out.
So it's being proposed, and part of the "Pandemic Stimulus Act of 2020"(I know it's not called that, but still) to send Americans checks for 1k or
Free dough for everyone.
I remarked in another thread that this coronavirus will be used as an excuse to do A LOT damage to practically everything.
The government has decided, without voting and minimal discussion, that our hard earned taxpayer dollars should go to bailing out ENTIRE industries.
You know, because capitalism is just a word..🙄
We can't stop it....it's going to happen.
Ok, well, if they want to use the coronavirus as an excuse, why can't we?? Just hear me out..
Bills be damned....stop paying them. Companies and energy providers are already deferring payments for a few months, I'm sure more will follow.
Honestly, what are they gunna do about it?
WE'RE IN A CRISIS, RIGHT?
Same mentality as the government and FED, "What are the people going to do about it? We're in a crisis!!"
I tell you what they think is going to happen. They're hoping all of us "responsible" people will catch up on our bills, meaning they get a double dip
bailout, and with our money AGAIN no less.
So here's my idea. Let them send those checks out and instead of being goody two shoes perfect citizen, you gather everyone you know and you combine
that money and start something amongst yourselves.
A business, a collective, a community profit sharing upstart..SOMETHING other than returning YOUR money back to them and essentially having ZERO to
show for it.
We are being given an extraordinary opportunity here, most likely the last, and we gotta be SMART.
If we actually played it right, they would have to send us MORE.(Probably happen anyway, but still)
Can you imagine the possibilities? I mean seriously ponder what could actually be accomplished.
That's my idea, and I'm telling all I know and am close to about it and they're pretty much in so far!
Feel free to share your ideas!
