Forsaken And Forgotten Americais becoming a very cold place. If you don't have money, you don't really matter much in our society. The ads on television aren't for you - they are directed at people that actually have good jobs and that can afford to buy the nice little "extras" in life. The politicians aren't really interested in you either - they figure that they can buy your vote with all of the money that they are getting from the wealthy people. When you don't have money, even friends and relatives start to distance themselves from you. Perhaps they are afraid that you will ask them for money or perhaps they are afraid that your "failure" will start to rub off on them.

The dollar will soon become worthless and even the top rich people of America will become paupers . They will become slaves of another country overseas. Massive amounts of Gold and precious metals will flood the market,making Gold worthless too( They've figured how to transmute metals like nickel, and magnesium into Platinum, gold and silver,etc ). They can make Gold from worthless metals, now. So, even the Rich People of the US will be poor too.The only reason why The US can command its present leadership in the world is because it has a huge nuclear arsenal and the superior means to deliver the bombs to their respective targets. It's the little wars around the globe that keep us from going under-by acting as the "policeman of the world" in the 200-year-old-effort to contain Eurasia (especially Central Europe).Greece has already bailed itself out of debt secretly using Gold Payments that it got from its secret Cold Fusion Program(the technology is from France and Italy and from Germany testing it outside of their countries.).

I have lots of family in NC, and I live pretty close to NC as well. If you were going to pick a state on the eastern seaboard, NC is definately one of the best places.
America is definately on the decline, but there are areas of this country that will not enforce petty rules and regulations, go for the small towns out in the boonies or Appalachia where you can quickly meet locals and intergrate in commuities and do some networking for your business.
I think the article was making light of the fact our incomes are worth less and the cost of living is soaring. I can relate because at one time I lived ok, now a trip to the grocery store costs atleast $20 for dinner only. I have made major adjustments to survive such as growing, and canning my own food. Its not easy as it once was, but everyone is heading to that point, you will see people start coming together more for survival.
I would say take a look at Canada, if you feel its more safe or in better shape, stay. I'm living here and I see our future a SHTF scenario, but that is everywhere even Canada.
