Why the Greek Elections are so Dangerous

On Sunday, the people of Greece voted in a radical leftist party with communist roots. The fact is, for the Syriza party this was an easy sell to the people of Greece because the party promised to end the austerity measures and get back to the “good life” of spending a bunch of money the country doesn’t have.

The sad fact is, this is exactly how Obama got re-elected and how dishonest politicians get elected the world over. They promise to spend a bunch of money that isn’t theirs and they could care less about drowning the country in debt because they’ll be in their mansion or flying in their private plane anyway.

I’ll never forget when I was getting my haircut during the last election and the woman cutting my hair asked me whom I was voting for. I told her Romney and she said she was voting for Obama because Romney would probably take her welfare away.

It’s tough to be a conservative who wants to do the right thing when the democrats you’re going against have put 70 million more people on welfare and thus have gotten themselves 70 million+ “welfare votes.”

Don’t get me wrong. I understand that people go on welfare because of completely legitimate reasons, such as disabilities, job loss or another tragic incident in their lives. But, welfare should be temporary and they should get off of it ASAP.

My point is, what the new Syriza party promised the people of Greece isn’t possible and will put the country into even more debt and cause more chaos. And, while the U.S. has fared better, it’s only a matter of time before we end up in the same place.

When you continue to put people on welfare and increase a country’s debt the dam will eventually burst. And when it does, those 70 million+ people won’t know what to do when their guaranteed government check doesn’t come each month and so they’ll likely riot and get very violent.

While this is not the only reason, it’s a big one for why I prepare for my family’s future. It’s why I have a year worth of food storage and a month supply of water. It’s why I own guns. And, it’s why I can be self-sufficient in every way for an extended period of time.

Of course, I hope nothing bad ever happens and that you and I live long, healthy and happy lives. But, seeing the Greek election on Sunday just made me realize what a “backwards” world we now live in, where hard work and self-reliance are forgotten and instead everything should be easy and given to us for free.

You may or may not agree with everything I’ve said above, but numbers don’t lie and there’s always a day of reckoning when you do the wrong thing. That’s why I encourage you, if you haven’t done so yet, to make 2015 the year your family is fully prepared to be self-reliant for a minimum of 30 days, and hopefully longer.

Next week, I’ll share with you my simple 30-day plan for preparing your family, including how much food and water storage you need and the 3 guns I would get.

    “…the woman cutting my hair asked me whom I was voting for. I told her Romney and she said she was voting for Obama because Romney would probably take her welfare away…”

    So she’s on welfare… and she’s working. Am I the only person who sees an issue with this?

    Sadly, Jason, it only speaks to your other point.

      Sadly, Darryl, you are missing Jason’s point that USA may be heading into very hard times should current political and economic policies continue and that we better prepare for it.

      • Darryl Hadfield

        No, actually, as i spoke directly to one of his points.

        Sadly, you completely missed *my* point….

        A shame you lack the capacity to think past what is blatantly stated for you.

        • Martian

          Darryl, I’m sorry about stating the obvious. Since I’m stupid, please clearly communicate your point so I may understand.

    A friend of mine (who works for a living) related the following to me:
    He was waiting in line at the checkout at the grocery store. The woman in front of him had a cart full of groceries, stuff like roasts, poptarts, name brand cereals, all the stuff that normal people scrimp on in order to save money. She produced a handful of EBT cards to pay for it all. So….whatever….she’s getting her groceries on EBT. Fine. Then he pays for whatever he was getting and goes outside to the parking lot where he notices her putting her groceries into a huge, newer model, jacked up, chevy pickup. Those things aren’t cheap. Then on his way out of the parking lot, he notices the pickup stopped at the drive through at the Wendy’s near the grocery store for some fast food. Nice.
    Here we are, both of us, working hard to provide a decent living for our families. I work a full time job and two part time jobs, he mows lawns on the side to scrape together a little extra cash. We do ok. But neither of us has a lot of expendable income for things like jacked up pickup trucks, or fast food. So how is it that this woman thinks she can take the taxes that we pay into the system, and use it to buy her groceries so the federal government can subsidize her giant pickup and her fast food?
    Just curious.
