People Are Going To Die

Whoever thought the United States was not the world leader was completely mistaken. For all the fluff about China's rise, the cohesion of Europe, and the growth in the Far East, the recent events show that we lead all other countries. The only problem is that we led them into a recession.

Politics is making a big deal about Joe the Plumber and whether he can buy his business under Obama's economic/tax plan. On the surface, this seems like a legitimate issue. In reality, it is lip service. The truth of the matter is that people are going to die.

Much of this chaos was caused by the leadership of the powerful institutions. This includes governments, executives of financial institutions, and other world leaders who failed "the people". I believe they are the ones with the blood on their hands.

It is politically incorrect to issue a call for violence. In many areas, it is crime to incite people in that manner. Yet the government, by their decisions can kill millions without recourse. These people need to be held accountable.

Food prices shot up over the last 6 months. This is a vital component of life. Since this increase, it is estimated that more than 100 million people worldwide entered into poverty. Surely, this will increase over the next 12 months. Many of these people are going to die. Of course, they are a long way from Wall Street, Washington, or London.

Even in the United States, there is a fair amount of poverty which will be experienced. It is always interesting to notice how the ones the government is suppose to protect are always affected negatively by them. Perhaps McCain and Obama could learn to understand what people are confronting by foregoing food for a week or so. Let them experience what their political games really cost people.

There is a revolution brewing. If things get much worse, we will see people start to take decisive action. The most dangerous person in the world is someone with nothing to lose. Starving people will take drastic action. Therefore, we will see an uprising out of the lower levels of society. At some point, they will awaken to the fact that the government is their worst enemy. A concept that the rest of us realize.
