At this point in history, the United States can weather, withstand and rise above any external challenge be it military or economic. There may be challenges - but it still has the advantage from a global perspective.
America’s biggest threat - the threat to fundamental freedom - comes from within its borders.
The dynamic economic system that has created the engine to drive fortune and opportunity has made this a great nation - a system based on freedom of choice - but choice also has the potential to put national prosperity at risk.
This risk comes from short-sighted profiteers who create business policies for immediate gain, regardless of how it affects the strategic health of a nation. They create policies to drive institutionalized fraud in order to dupe the consumer to make decisions that appeal to a thrifty or health conscious nature, but the implications are hidden and masked by layers of misdirection through media channels and presentation.
It affects every level of American economic life. It is an assault on every social class - from the fortunate who are convinced they must acquire the best of whatever the latest trend is - to the regular working folk who are driven to shop at big box retailers because “their prices can’t be beat”.
This is an attack on the rich AND poor…no matter what cards you were dealt in this life, the game is rigged against everyone one way or another. We are all in this together.
How do we fight this? How do we fix this?
With any vast problem, you must look at the base, or the fundamentals.
From the perspective of this author, you can start with what you can personally control. There are two things that come to mind. The Truth and Food.
Seek The Truth
People must seek the truth when engaging in business and making purchase decisions. For the average person that may be hard…that is why there are laws in place to protect the consumer from misleading information generated by business and self interested government officials. This is why truth in labeling of food is so important. There must be full disclosure of the origin of your food so you can make an informed decision to purchase. You can’t help local if you can’t buy local - you need to know the truth! This is the foundation of keeping the American economy strong and independent from foreign influences.
Start With Food
Start with Food, our most basic resource and something that you can control (it is your choice only) and something that is your absolute right - a right without question or debate. The right to eat what you choose to! Buying local or at least nationally sourced food - preferably organic - puts the control of America back in the hands of Americans at the most fundamental level. This is the true wall of economic protection against the unethical will from within, and external alien interests or malice.
That is how we win this war from within our borders…this hidden civil war we are fighting.
Seek the truth and start with food. We must Eat American!
