A Gloomy 2023? Here Are Some Bright Spots• http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org by Ron Paul
The mainstream media is even "normalizing" the idea that a nuclear attack on the US is really no big deal. Yahoo News wrote yesterday that a "public health expert" is "concerned" that Americans are not sufficiently prepared for nuclear bombs hitting major US cities!
The Yahoo article even links to a FEMA-authored "nuclear detonation planning guide" to help us better get through a barrage of nuclear missiles. Are they insane? They act as if a nuclear attack on the United States is just another inconvenience to plan for, like an ice storm or a hurricane.
The FEMA guide's advice on what to do during a nuclear attack is, "Get inside, stay inside, and stay tuned." Stay tuned to what? Have they not seen the photos from Hiroshima or Nagasaki?
While we are foolishly edging toward war, with the media and Beltway neocons cheering it on, there are still some bright spots we can look to in 2023.
First, polls consistently demonstrate increasing American opposition to US involvement in Ukraine. Republicans are set to take control of the House this week right as Republican voter support for more military aid to Ukraine has seen a dramatic and steady decline. US households continue to struggle under runaway inflation and a looming economic crack-up and more Americans are going to demand answers from their government as to why we have sent more than $100 billion to Ukraine while so many are struggling at home.
