ObamaCare/RomneyCare is Here to Stay
When the news broke this morning that the Supreme Court had judged that ObamaCare was Constitutional, my first response was anger. I was mad that they would shove this right back at us by reinterpreting it as a tax instead of an abuse of the commerce clause.
Later I was more disgusted. I felt personal animosity toward all who were involved in writing, passing and approving this abomination.
Now I am just sad. I am sad for what our great country is becoming. I know that we've been slowly circling the drain, but today's ruling seems to jiggle the handle and get us going in a full flush.
To paraphrase the First Lady, today, for the first time in my adult life, I am truly disappointed in my country.
What does all of this have to do with prepping?
I really believe that this is a harbinger of bad times coming, and coming a lot quicker than most of us "reasonable" people have been thinking. I don't think it is coming in the next few months, but I think a massive economic collapse will be upon us in 3 to 5 years rather than 10-15 or 15-20.
Please, do what you need to do to buckle down and get fiscally and physically healthy and prepared. Get out of debt, buy what you need to be prepared, and get your body and mind conditioned for hard times.
