The Number One Catastrophic Event That Americans Worry About: Economic Collapse

• www.theeconomiccollapseblog.com
Can you guess what the number one catastrophic event that Americans worry about is?  There are certainly many to choose from.  Many Americans are deathly afraid of a major terrorist attack.  Others live in constant fear of natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanoes and hurricanes.  Still others are incredibly concerned that a massive pandemic will break out at any time or that World War III will erupt in the Middle East.  Yes, there are certainly a lot of potential catastrophic events that one can worry about in the times in which we live, but the number one catastrophic event that Americans worry about is actually "economic collapse".  At least that is what a recent survey conducted by Leiflin Inc. for the EcoHealth Alliance found.  But this goes along with what so many other polls have found over the past few years.  Over and over again, opinion polls have found that the number one issue that American voters are concerned about is the economy.  The truth is that average Americans are deeply, deeply concerned about unemployment, debt, the housing crash and the steady decline in the standard of living.  It has been years since the U.S. economy has operated at a "normal" level, and many Americans are afraid that things could soon get a whole lot worse.

In the new survey mentioned above, those contacted were asked to select the top three potential catastrophes that worry them the most.

The following results come directly from the survey....

Economic Collapse: 63%
Natural Disaster: 46%
Terrorist Attack: 44%
Global Disease Outbreak: 33%
Global War: 27%
Nuclear Accident: 25%
Global Warming: 22%
Fuel Shortage: 15%
Cyber War: 8%
Famine: 8%
Oil Spill: 6%
Industrial Accident: 5%

There is no such thing as "economic collapse"! Get a glimpse at my 2012 Crystal Ball.

This so-called U.S. "economic collapse" is a 2011 political cooked-up … a virtual reality that exists only in the mind of State-haters and Government-bashers whose agenda operates in Cloud 9. Deep in their heart, they themselves don’t believe what they are saying or what they are salivating about, like when they talk to themselves that Ron Paul is going to be the next president of the United States!

But the money they make out of this Ron Paul project is good. It is a good cover or excuse for feathering their nest – especially those people in the media that treat Ron Paul’s campaign as a money-making business.

What will happen in 2012 onward is that those existing economic policies will get restructured, to catch the economic fallouts of the restructuring European economic union, and even the make-over of our industrial complex in Asia, mainly in China, to make the United States the strongest economic power than it was ever before.

My Crystal Ball also vibrates the following 2012 scenarios:

[1] It is unavoidable for the American people to feel insecure of their economic future for as long as Obama is in power. But once Obama is booted out of office – and that could happen ANYTIME -- the American people will consider drastic election reform in tandem with economic reform.

[2] The anti-Obama Congress will look into how did Obama become president [the birth certificate blowback of the "freest election" on the planet], and will pass a law to see to it that it would never happen again.

[3] The new national leadership will become more vigilant in protecting the State against the continuous attacks of the enemy within. It might even get paranoid as those attacks accelerate. And if there is anything that worries me, it is this possibility. Get it right -- the CIA and FBI that most of you are paranoid about, are kid glove in comparison to what likely could take place. The "Generals" of the Armed Forces might intervene and decide the fate of this nation, precisely because of what the CIA and FBI were presumed to be doing as the dots connect to the Mafia involvement in the JFK assassination, which in the mind of the people is a skeleton in the closet.

[2] Congress will pass a law that would outlaw any "candidate of the lunatic fringe" to run for president. The compelling reason behind that move is that for the survival of the State, the State will protect itself against attacks of what MSNBC’s Chris Mathews aptly described as "demon[s] sent from the depths of hell to destroy humanity and plunge the planet into eternal dakness."

This leftist throttle-whistle won’t work. In this country, there is no such thing as "economic collapse". That IMPOSSIBILITY is like this Ron Paul throttle-whistle that he will become the next president of the United States!

As I said several times before, that this will happen only when the crow turns white!
