Warnings That Ending the Gravy Train Could Mean Rioting


Representative Paul Broun (R-GA) says "Obama is a Marxist," and that the nation is "playing with fire" by suspending the debt ceiling.

In an article by Taylor Rose at WND, Broun warns that if the entitlement programs are shut down, and our national defense cannot be funded, that  “People are going to be in the streets like Greece,” and the coming “real fiscal cliff” will simply be “economic collapse.”

Our nation has become so dependent upon taxpayer funded programs to support general lifestyle "requirements" that many Americans have no clue how to live frugally with the dollars the government (taxpayers) gives to them, let alone dollars they make on their own. 

If a government shut-down included medical care/funding for Medicaid, Veterans services, food stamps, cash assistance, school lunches, or any of the government pensions folks are counting on, unfortunately even the earned benefits (such as with earned pensions or VA benefits)  will be just as absent as the un-earned entitlement funds.

Combine a nation of hungry people, people without money they believe they are due, a nation full of illegals, and a people who are being pressed to disarm, and pit the have-not's against those who potentially retain their ability to take care of themselves, and the recipe makes for sure-fire civil disruption and possible uprisings.

When the chaos coincides with a concerted effort to disarm Americans, there is real need for concern.  Should widespread rioting occur, the need for self protection and maintaining home as a secure and safe place to reside, would be difficult without maintaining a strong 2nd Amendment.

WND reports on an interview with Broun:

When the money runs out, he said, the U.S. “will not be able to pay for the essentials, most importantly national defense,” as well as Social Security, Defense and medical personnel.

Consequently, he thinks “protesting and riots like in Greece” are a very real possibility in America.

He took specific aim at Obama, saying, “This president’s policies are going to make basic goods and services higher in price.”

Obama, Broun said, “believes in an all-intrusive and all-controlling federal government.”

“He doesn’t get it,” the congressman said. “He thinks we can spend at an uncontrolled rate, with total abandon to responsibility.”

Why is this happening?

“He’s a Marxist,” Broun said of Obama.

However, he said that’s not the only problem.

“We’ve got a spending addiction that both parties are to blame for,” he said.

Both parties are “in denial and they want to keep spending money and add more and more debt to our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and they will not be living at the same level as we have.”

It's time to face reality.  Most Americans don't even seem to understand how many social programs, environmental programs, foreign aid, and federal money to the states for their own programs the US actually pays out, without being able to cover. Therefore, most Americans don't realize how many programs people truly believe they are owed.

We haven't been able to afford our socialist entitlement societal programs for a very long time.  We ignored that fact for so long, that now even if we stop the programs we can't dig out of the fiscal hole we've buried our future generations inside of.  Now we have the additional concern not only of funding the entitlement programs, but also what happens to a society of the "me-generation", who has been taught their only goal is to get what they are owed.  What happens when the first time in their lives they are told no?  What will they do to prove they are owed handouts, when the gravy train runs out of steam.

    Margret Thatcher Said It Best ( Socialism Is Good Until You Run Out Of Other People's Money ) Am I Paranoid ; Or Is Obama With The Backing Of George Soros Trying To Destroy This Nation ?? A Nation Where Welfare Is A Better Option Then Working ; A Nation Where Federal /State / County Workers Who Are Paid By Those Who Work And Produce Tangible Goods And Knowing They Are Being Paid Less ( Over All )Then Those Who Salaries & Benefits They Pay . The Division And Discontent Over Obama's Polices , Dismantling The 2nd .Amendment ( Obama's Goal ) Would Be A Problem .

    I Guess I Could Bury My Head In The Sand Like The 51% That Voted For Obama And Wait Until Reality Happens .

    our leaders are all working for the new NWO even ppl like mc caina and rove . When our mod gop leaders follow in foot as the libs that are pushing for the same but in a diffrent way Now with the amnasy they give our jobs away Obambo stops our jobs to help. After they take our guns we will be the slaves of the goverment

  • freedomringsforall

    This country, and so many of this countries once respected institutions, are being influenced and/or run by Fabians, Marxist, commie, fascist, dictatorial, morons.

    I am sure that there are many who would call me a moron for lumping those philosophies together but I in return would infer they ought to look in the mirror and then think about what all those philosophies have wrought on the earth and when all is said and done in history they have all wrought exactly the same in the end; slaughter, famine, and despair.

    We need to get these commie, fascist, Islamic terrorist coddling bunch of scum out of power in these United States.

    Then we need to work our tails off to get all of our freedoms and rights restored.

    We are the only hope left for this planet and for all those down trodden and less fortunate to look to as their hope for true freedom and all that it brings.

    We must stay united and take the hope, the light, and the right of freedom to every last corner and dark alley and to every last soul in this world.

  • Freedom11

    Feed up with free loaders, fed up with threats from government ,threats of rioting, fear mongers etc. Maybe it's time the working people and those who want to work,PROTEST/MARCH ? All of us are being taxed to death so the Govt can blow it on their personal interest, in some cases,specifically OBAMA. He is doing NOTHING to resolve economical,security issues! Especially those of us who are out of work, but are trying to find work even though I have worked for 40 plus years and want to continue to work for a few more years. Maybe those of us who want should start spending some of our time( we have plenty of it_,betweem looking for work - marching/protesting in front of our "ELECTED representatives " , offices/ homes( where/when needed) MANY of whom are NOT doing their jobs and/or are doing more to hurt the US( NOT protecting our interest/freedoms) than help.? If there are approx. 23+ million unemployed, if 1/2 of those are interested in working, NOT looking for a free ride. if only 1/4 of those were able to march, protest. That would be 2-3 million. Just an idea?

    Rioting is one of the reasons we keep guns. When riots happen, the military and the police are usually of no help. You can defend yourself or be a victim. Anti-gun people do not have that choice.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-M-Rolwing/1718182613 John M Rolwing

    The President is leading the charge, and he knows exactly what he's doing. Spending does not even have to be cut-back [at least] because those that are affected will of course become exceedingly vocal and demonstrative and in their own way cause a riot...and when the riot involves people that are not even involved, but have their property and lives obstructed and destructed, they will push back just as hard, and well, total civil unrest will follow...EXACTLY the plan. Collapse the system, and "government comes to the rescue" with the resulting loss of everything Constitutional, and the implementation of everything socialist. How's that for a "fair share?"

  • Frank_O

    It is now mathematically impossible to avoid a financial collapse for the USA or US Dollar or both. Why? Because we can't pay the interest on the debt if the Free Market (instead of the Federal Reserve) were to set the interest rates. But neither can the Federal Reserve keep interest rates artificially low forever. If they try to do it, only the Federal Reserve will be buying the new debt with Dollars printed out of thin air which would greatly increase the money supply resulting in massive inflation & a worthless Dollar. Either way, it will end badly for the USA & US Dollar. If enough people or governments holding US Dollars or US debt instruments lose enough confidence in them, panic selling might ensue resulting in worthless Dollars & worthless US debt instruments virtually overnight.

    Already I've seen reports that last year the Federal Reserve wound up buying 60-70% of the new debt. They really shouldn't be buying any new debt which means that Congress needs to balance the budget NOW (cut about 38% out of the Federal budget). But, of course, Congress won't do it. So the problem will only get worse until the final collapse.

    So use whatever time you have left before the collapse to unload your extra US Dollars & US debt instruments to buy PHYSICAL gold & silver & then hide it (don't put it in a bank safety deposit box). Don't be the last one holding on to worthless paper. At least the gold & silver will be worth something after the collapse.

    Does anyone else see this as the perfect storm? I mean, we r having our 2nd amendment rights tossed around (Talk of disarming us) and about the same time human maggots (the ones who don't deserve it) might be without tax payer $, food etc...completely cut off!

    How convent mass riots and we cannot defend ourselves?

    Oh yes, this could get very interesting.

    • http://freedomoutpost.com/author/andrearoltgen/#ixzz2IoG7jACE Andrea

      Yes, Wanda..a few of us do certainly see it along with you! I just keep thinking of the woman that spoke to reporters after Obama was first "elected" and they interviewed her as she waited in line for her "Obama money". She didn't know where it came from (it didn't exist anyway) but the reporter asked her where the money came from and who it belonged to. She pretty much said, "i don't know...obama" then he asked her where he got it and her reply was, "I don't know..his stash..he's Obama!"

      These are the folks who are going to riot. They are going to scream louder for what they are "due", simply by being born and breathing. Then, when no one can give them what they demand, they are going to be acting like animals after a NBA playoff game..turning over cars..violence..pillaging...theft..you name it.

    • Walt

      That is what the guns are for; Rioting. They will steal, destroy and kill those they think have something they want. Those with guns who fire back will have a chance to survive simply because mobs are cowards and will simply go to the next house. Those with no guns will have no chance.

    • Floyd

      You are right. The problem is what percentage of the U.S. population understands the above as a very possible outcome?

      Apparently not big enough. Because we are going down a road that could lead to that scenario and most of the population is complacent.

    • http://www.facebook.com/wanda.williams.58323431 Wanda Williams

      Andrea, I watched her also and thought she is the poster child for their kind. She voted for her demise/enslavement and doesn't know it. It amazes me that those who contribute absolutely nothing (and are able), expect so much from others. Yep, they expect their Obama money and their Obama phone. Contrary to their beliefs, no one owe's them anything.

  • SuperRoadrunner

    Most people do not realize that this is the objective of the Cloward & Piven Strategy that Obama has been faithfully following: Drive the middle class and the poor into a state of complete destitution that would be the cause of a major upheaval resulting in riots, martial law, and the eventual takeover by a tyrannical dictatorship...

  • BillofRights

    SS, Veterans and anything that has been earned is NOT an entitlement. Medicaid, Medicare for those who did not pay into it, welfare, foreign aid and I'm sure I'm missing many more need to be cut WAY back.

    • http://freedomoutpost.com/author/andrearoltgen/#ixzz2IoG7jACE Andrea

      The military does earn part of their benefits package with the understanding they can be provided medical care. Everything else is a false sense of security, as it hasn't had the funds to pay for itself for generations.

    • MV

      Social Security and Medicare are failed Ponzi schemes that are not properly funded and operated. For Medicare at present - the average payout is $300K, while the average 'pay in' was only $100K. Medicare and SS need to be majorly overhauled - and even so, they will present tremendous burdens on future generations that didn't have a say so in how the programs were set up, managed (or mis-managed).

      The amnesty of even more mouths to feed is intended to break us. This is all intentional. Americans, whatever color or background are being replaced.

  • retiredmillwright

    The high spending Government running completely dry is where we are eventually headed. We are borrowing four dollars out of ten now. When we borrow money we have to put up something of value in case we can't pay. Countries like China won't take devalued dollars for payback. They are already suggesting we pay down our debt with them in American timber land. Its looking like we may loose large chunks of America to the people we are borrowing the money from that Washington squanders. When the cities and government can no longer pay their hand outs and obligations look out. The people will burn the cities and the people will starve. Ask any city dweller what they will do in this situation, They will tell you they will go to the country where the food is grown. There will not be enough there to go around to the herd of nonworking locusts there either and open warfare will erupt between the haves and have not's. THERE WILL BE NO HAPPY ENDING FOR ANYONE. Put bach long lasting food.ammo and have a place to raise your ovn food and you have a slim chance

      I agree a hundred percent, Scriptures tell us that in the latter days the Israelites will be forced to go into countries as slaves, the question is who are the Israelites remember all Jews are Israelites but all Israelites are Not Jews.

    • ort

      Chapter and verse please

    • Apolloone

      It not a matter of chapter and verse, precept on precept, line upon line, here a little there a little because there are several books that tell us about a massive number of Israelites the lost tribes, who will go into captivity. Here is a couple Isaiah 11:11 and Ezekial 34:2-34:8 This captivity is yet future this is very clear because God says it.

    • ort

      Yes, it most certainly is. Because what you think is the future, is actually the past. Israel was taken into captivity in the past. There are no New Testament verses that say they will go into captivity again. In fact, when God brought Israel back into the land again in 1948, just as He promised He would, He also said they " would never be uprooted again."

      Your theological timeline is all wrong.

    • BenCats1

      Maybe (no probably) the SOBs need to be replaced. Whether we could find honest folks to take their place is another story but we darn sure couldn't do any worse!

    Veterans services are earned. I must have misread that. If not let me just say it this way."A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'"

    • http://freedomoutpost.com/author/andrearoltgen/#ixzz2IoG7jACE Andrea

      While they are earned, I have never used any from my discharge in 1973 until today. I believe I can and have made it on my own. So why should someone who isn't in need be a burden on his fellow citizens? If your in need by all means use them, but if your doing fine, WTF?

    • sean

      Good for you that you don't need them. I earned mine in combat in both in Afghanistan, Iraq and other operations some of which I was wounded on. I have never met a freeloading veteran at the VA since you need to be service connected (your injury must be from service) to use your benefits. I am sure there are people who try and cheat the system and that is just sad. I think allot of social programs in the US are being abused by people who are cheating the system.

    • Jeff

      I know quite a few who use as many as they can, they will go to the VA for the flu then cry cause they had to pay 10%. They don't care that you and I had to pay the other 90% and they cut into the budget needed for those who have real problems.

    • http://twitter.com/eagle2758 George Washington

      The VA should always be fully funded. We sure as hell don't need all these programs like Head start, which is nothing but a daycare program. I use the VA because I need to, and because I f'in earned it. Got a problem with that? Do you volunteer at your local VA? You should, because you'll get to see what Obamacare will be like.

    • Jeff

      I don't volunteer for anything anymore, last time I did that I ended up in south east Asia. I don't need anything from the VA or the government in any way, shape or form. As far as programs we don't need any of them, I never said the VA didn't serve a purpose, what I said is I never have and only those who NEED it should.

      I wouldn't count on it being there for you. Our nation really got fed a line when they got generations of people to believe they paid into some account with their name on it. It is not a retirement plan, and has been spent long ago. We'd fare much better if we saved for our own retirements, and not send the government money to spend on whatever entitlement programs they choose to run, and then hope there is some mere fraction left for those who have paid in. I'm sorry for everyone counting on SSA. Besides, when "old folks" are lined up against "young entitlement folks", since our gov't believes the elderly are worthless, they'll keep the SSA allotted funds for the entitlement folks! It's all a load of garbage!

    • MV

      Unfortunately, Social Security is a Ponzi scheme that isn't properly funded...and politicians were permitted to steal the funds. There is little difference between Social Security and Bernie Madoff. The government should not make Bernie Madoff's victims "whole" because they did not perform 'due diligence' to ensure that their investments were invested properly. In the same manner, future generations might tell Social Security recipients to 'shove it' because the older generation voted for politicians that mis-spent/looted and mis-managed the funds, and the new generations shouldn't have their taxes raised to make the older generation 'whole.' The older generation should never have voted for corrupt politicians that did what they did; they should have nearly rioted when these politicians violated good accounting principles. The reality is...the next generation doesn't owe the older generation ANYTHING.!!!

    • marys1000

      And our government doesn't owe the younger generation anything other than seeing that colleges stop ripping them off with jacked-up costs, fix SS, and the lesson that doing nothing gets you nothing! Work and be rewarded a paycheck with most of your money in your pocket, not the bloated government! Thinking that 14-22 million unemployed legal immigrants and citizens need 6-7 million illegal workers as permanent competition is absurd and has to be shutdown immediately! Go after employers with illegal workers, impose massive fines and jail time, and deport the illegals to send the message that if you want to come here, apply like the millions of other legal applicants that is waiting their turn outside of our country. We have immigration laws to limit the number of people because we can only absorb so many people, right now we don't even have enough jobs for the legal immigrants and citizens, so it is obvious we don't need 6-7 million illegal non-Ag workers! There are unlimited ag visas so there should be no illegal workers there either! Cheap labor is not so cheap when you figure in that it cost over $1T just for 2011 Welfare
      and $50-$100B just for Extended Unemployment which not everybody gets and was less than 99 weeks, and they just approved an additional 99 weeks. Why? There are 6-7 million illegal non-Ag workers and they need to go so unemployed legal immigrants and citizens can get back to work!

      All entitlements of any kind for younger people and non-payers must be ended prior to ending Social Security and Medicare for those who paid into the system.

    • Germeten

      The politics of envy you are expressing only applies because you're being taxed, and that only to support Federal Reserve banksters who issue themselves credit at whim and then lend it out when they think the economy needs it. They have successfully set Americans upon each other while they hover, just out of reach, smirking. The government was broke from day one it signed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, when it gave OWNERSHIP of currency to and became mere Kinko's for the Fed.
