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.

    When the welfare receipitants receiving unfunded entitlements no longer receive any money and/or food stamps, housing assiatance and any one of 70+ government programs the rioting will begin. Rioting will be nationwide and not like the riots in Watts back in the @60s. The middle class will then be able to change the social direction of the country in defence of their families and property.

    Obama and his administration are afraid of just this, that we, the American people might just stand up to the federal government and demand that it is given back to the people and not the politicians!

    No, we can only afford to bail out banksters for trillions and let the Federal Reserve banks issue trillions in credit to friends to play the stock market. (QE I, II, III.) We can only afford to sell dollars to the Federal Reserve for cost of paper and ink and then borrow it back at face value, plus interest, compounding, forever, so foreigners can "participate" buying our bonds and the Fed can bless the money to give it value. Wake the hell up, Andrea, it sounds like either you've had a very impoverished childhood, bought into Sunday morning talking heads, or been educated by Paul Ryan, or maybe you support the globalist traitors who took our jobs and factories overseas. 90% of the economy is off-balance sheet and tun by banksters, what Americans are taxed is a pittance in comparison. The debt is a sham that needs to be repudiated. did you know that in 2008 the Fed issued $15 Trillion in credit against junk bonds owned by one Johannes Riyadi, which was given to EU banks (since the Fed is owned by EU banksters, they effectively gave the money to themselves) which they are using to trade medium-term notes on the overnite market for between 1.5% - 2% per nite, compounding. With those returns they could pay off the national "debt" in a few short months, BUT WILL THEY? (See Lord Blackheath's Youtube videos.) What they've done is the crime-of-the century and now they're calling for "austerity measures." This is how the elite institute SLAVERY! It's a PERCEPTION they are selling, hearing you repeat it makes you part of the problem. CURS AT THE TROUGH, PRIVATE INTERESTS COMPETING FOR PUBLIC FUNDS! The banks would claim entitlement to ALL the currency if you let them! Uninformed opinions are like elbows; everyone has them.

    Many will take what is offered. They take it because it is there. Others feel entitled. Yes, there will probably be rioting if entitlements are withdrawn from those who never paid into the system. That is the price we pay for having been a foolish nation that subscribed to Socialism. People who riot, burn, and loot need to be put in jail or shot for destroying someone else property and livelihood. Because someone does not have what he needs is not a reason to jealously destroy the property and livelihood of anyone else.

    Ending the gravy train that Obama has increased in our society in his tenure without creating jobs for these lazy, seemingly entitled citizens will cause problems. But the fact is that America can't sustain this reality and the lazy, seemingly entitled citizens along with the Democrat politicians don't want to see or hear the truth. Even if Obama confiscated the entire holdings of the wealthy of our society - that still cannot sustain this situation. These seemingly entitled of our society who are able bodied and capable of working (just lazy) need to be contributing instead of taking. Face the reality, the truth before it bankrupts America.
