I was having a pretty good discussion with someone earlier and we were talking about the future of the country and what will likely happen.
Consider the following scenario:
The US dollar becomes less and less valuable, cost of goods go up but yet people make the same, if not less
because there are less job opportunities. The increase in regulations and national mandate increase in minimum wage will reduce employment rate and
overwork employees with less hours. Consider an employee doing 3 jobs instead of just one at their workplace. The cost of food, goods and services
will also increase because of this and the requirement for Obamacare will make it so that employees will work less hours or even not at all.
Small businesses will be forced to close, those that stay open will have to maintain an employee level under about 40 so that they don't have to pay
into Obamacare for their employees. This will stagnate growth of small businesses and big businesses will grow bigger and bigger, which means they
will have more capital to invest into automating processes, move overseas, outsource, in-source and so forth. Of course, smaller businesses will also
be able to do some of this as well, which will also make outsourcing and in some instances, in-sourcing an even bigger thing.
Because of this theoretical situation, black markets will begin to open from goods and services to medical. Need medicine at an affordable rate?
Someone will have you covered because the pharmaceutical industry will be striving with Obamacare. Cost of medication will be insanely higher than
they are today. Need a black market job? Someone might know a good gig. Prostitution will become bigger, living in underground locations similarly to
how illegals do so today will be more common because of the cost of living will be "too damn high". Property tax will also continuously increase as
the demands to save government programs will just about guarantee this scenario.
Do you want to make money but not pay into Obamacare? Because how the program is set up, if you don't file taxes, don't legally work somewhere, or
don't make enough money you will not need to pay a fine or anything. This will be another reason why the new Black Market sector will become a hit.
Black markets are big in any third-world country. The question is, will Obama allow this? Will he just go out and raid the black market at full force,
sending everyone into federal prison? What happens around that time? Will people have enough of the government then?
Interesting things to ponder... But if there's one thing that is certain, it's that the US dollar becomes evermore worthless by the day, more people
are sent on the streets by these new taxes and regulations and eventually there will be a lot of angry people out there. Perhaps if a revolution is to
happen, it could happen once there's enough people being beaten and abused by the government. Until then, people will have to learn how to survive
with and without the government and that is where the black market fits in.
Welcome to the Blackmarket State of America.
