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.

You forgot that Obama wants to legalize something like 30 million illegal immigrants. Adding even more people to an already strained workforce population.

Good catch, that's very true. I heard that it's not just illegals that are in the US but also their families as well, but that could just be a rumor, I never tried to confirmed it.

There seems to be a real fallacy here about inflation, not just in the OP, but in regards to people's perception of what inflation means. It would seem that inflation, as relative "value" change, only applies to exported or imported goods. All product produced within the confines of a statutory border (a country/nation) would remain relative and therefore should not change.

It's seems it's when the bankers, government puppets and corporate CEO's driving the media say that, "We need all these toys from someplace else and therefore we are going to raise our prices so we can buy these toys" that things become problematic. Consider that the US or Canada (for that matter) are wholly self-sufficient entities. We all grow our own food, we can make pretty much anything we want or need, we have internal infrastructure that does not rely on foreign countries, we have the resources we need, possible with the exception of oil (but in Canada we have plenty apparently and so does the US at least in the Gulf) and we have our own electrical grid and communications systems.

If a country had no imports or exports, no fractional reserve banking system and no predatory central bank, the currency value would remain static, meaning that prices (value of product) relative to wages (value of services/labour) would never change.

It's all smoke and mirrors as far as I can tell.

Clearly this is what happened in Massachusetts where Obamacare (under a different name) has been the law of the land since 2006. Boston is a city of mutants and gangs that drive around in dune buggies and do battle through the vast black market stands across tha state. Warlords rage across this now 3rd world state because of a healthcare law. And now the entire narion faces the same fate. The MSM would have you believe that Massachusetts is in great shape and that all the healthcare law ended up doing was increasing the amount of people covered and dropping ER visits. We know that crazy talk is not true. Massachusetts became Madmaxassachusetts and now we all face the same fate.

Some excellent posts on here.

Some things to keep in mind.

Fiat currency is currency that gets its value from government laws and regulations.

After the black market gets going full swing in every state, things that are illegal will skyrocket and people will be put in prison due to these laws. Due to the fact people will need to do something to survive. That's more money to house and feed non violent criminal's.

"These are tough times, Americans deserve all the fruits of their labor"


Inflation comes in many forms, taxation is a form of inflation. Now I'm paying 5.5 on foods. So the cost has risen.

Ron Paul was the only hope, it seems for the world.

This is why he wanted to get rid of the war on drugs. It creates crime and in the end people are going to get ahold of it if they truly want to.

How has it come down to bankers regulating not only our currency, but our laws that regulate our currency and our means and morals as individuals?

This is far from liberty and we should all feel ashamed that we are losing what our forefathers fought for.

If you're not ashamed now, pay heed to what you will feel like after you fight for it.

The forefathers didn't have to fight against the technology we have today.

That's a pretty amazing quote. If I could give you a star for your post and a second star for that quote I would.
