The Debt Cycle will Destroy U.S.

Constitutional Carry Continues Advancing, and Other Great News for Gun Owners!
“This is a fantastic day.... Law-abiding citizens should not have to ask for permission to exercise a constitutionally-protected right.” -- GOA’s Erich Pratt, quoted in, September 15, 2016

Not a GOA member yet?  You can join Gun Owners of America for only $20 and start getting postcards to put heat on your legislators today!

Missouri Overrides the Gov’s Veto, Adopts GOA-backed Permitless Carry!
Dear Thomas:
This has been a terrific week.
I am so proud of our Missouri activists, because in unison, they drowned out the shrill voice of billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

We now have 12 states that have adopted Constitutional Carry -- Missouri becoming the latest one to do so on Wednesday.
And for anyone who was watching ... wow! ... legislators in the Show Me State did it in grand fashion.  
Republican legislators overwhelmingly overrode Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a GOA-backed Constitutional Carry bill (SB 656) -- legislation which protects the right of law-abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns without first getting a permit.
Concealed carry has made tremendous strides in 2016, as Missouri now becomes the fourth state this year to adopt a permitless carry law.
Gun Owners of America mobilized its grassroots members on several occasions in support of this Constitutional Carry legislation.  
You can go here and here to see recent examples.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg was very active in Missouri, opposing the legislation, but to no avail.  
The loud, collective voice of gun owners across the state overcame Bloomberg’s money and his misrepresentations about concealed carry.
Missouri’s permitless carry will take effect within 30 days. 
The Show Me State now joins eleven other states in the Constitutional Carry club: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.
In Other Good News ...
The postcards from GOA members are paying off!
In August, Gun Owners of America mailed postcards to its members urging Representatives to oppose “No Fly, No (Gun) Buy” legislation.
The problem with these bills is that law-abiding gun owners can be erroneously put on Government Watch lists -- without due process -- meaning their Second Amendment rights would be illegitimately denied or put on hold.
Well, these postcards are now inundating congressional offices, and they couldn’t have arrived at a better time.
On Wednesday, Democrats tried to hijack the House floor to demand a vote on Government Watch list legislation.
But Republicans refused to grant unanimous consent, and shut down Democrats’ efforts at passing gun control ... for now.
No doubt, anti-gun Democrats will keep trying. Remember that they already staged a sit-in on the House floor in June, demanding more gun restrictions.
And similar efforts were attempted in the Senate.
But Gun Owners of America fought hard to oppose ALL gun control, and garnered the ire of Senators like Harry Reid, who said at the time:
Senate Republicans continue to cower [before] the Gun Owners of America. The NRA is bad, really bad. Gun Owners of America is even worse than bad.
So please help us to continue deluging legislators’ desks with postcards:  
One GOA member recently told me:  “I find the postcards you send out to be extremely useful.  When I receive extra ones, I stamp and give them to friends to sign and send.” 
That can be you as well!
Keep in mind that membership in GOA is only $20 for a year -- but with that membership, you will be supplied with a continual stream of postcards that you can use to put heat on your legislators.

You can join Gun Owners of America for only $20 and start getting postcards to put heat on your legislators today!

Ammo to Combat Gun Grabbers’ Falsehoods
Finally, I want to make you aware of several different tools that you can use to help educate yourself and others on Second Amendment issues.
The first is a GOA production called Praesidium, which is a powerful short film that has elements of H.G. Wells’ Time Machine.  
It’s short -- only five minutes -- but it delivers a powerful message in showing the dangers of Gun Free Zones.
Please click here to view Praesidium.

The second video, also a GOA production, exposes the failures of Gun-Free Zones in just two-and-a-half minutes -- explaining why mass shooters target these victim disarmament areas and showing how guns are being used in self-defense.
Click here to view The Lie Behind Gun Free Zones.
Once you view these videos, I hope that you will post them to your Facebook and Twitter pages!
Lastly, another resource that shows the dangers of Gun-Free Zones -- and gun control in general -- is Dr. John Lott’s new book, The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies.
Dr. Lott not only tackles the failure of Gun-Free Zones, but of background checks, Aussie gun control and much more.
You can order your copy today by clicking here.
I hope the above resources will help you and your family to better articulate Second Amendment principles with those who don’t understand the benefits of freedom.
Thank you so much for your support and activism in defense of our rights.
In Liberty,
Erich Pratt

   Who can tell me or advise, about the reason how many thousands of my great Blog readers from all over the world---  but especially Europe,  were glued to my posts, and then something happened to 'unplug' most of them a few weeks ago....  duh.  [?].   It beats the heck out of me, unless some other countries just recently outlawed their own European people from reading my Christian based, conservative type/ style Blog.   I don't THINK I touched anything different or pressed the wrong button or stroked the wrong key....Ha!   I am just a very curious person, and perhaps I am spending too much time worrying about a problem that I cannot fix.   But I figure.... at least they got a snout full of "good old Gospel preaching and teaching, and the KJV Bible !"    So,  my conscience is clear.  Here is a tip/ hint on spelling that term:   "Con ---Science =  Conscience."   Like Disney's "Jiminy Cricket."    That little feeling in your heart that pricks you when you do something wrong... IF you have a Conscience, trained by the Bible and the Holy Spirit.  
       And as I have said so many times...  I know and understand that I AM a Sinner !   But, not as some "people" claim, that I use that in defense to willfully commit more sins, and that somehow makes it alright....Ha!   NO !  Like the apostle Paul said, 'I know what is right and wrong -- but my flesh is weak.'   However,  I have accomplished many things in my life, and quit many bad sinful habits ---with the help of the Holy Spirit !   So, it is with that understanding that I can and will continue to do even more while on earth ---if God permits me to live a little bit longer and breathe this fresh air, with the help of the Spirit in the Sky !   And remember, folks....  "Nothing is impossible for the man, or woman, who DOESN'T HAVE TO DO IT !!"   I already know what true struggle and hardship, being deserted, kicked out of one's house in the middle of Winter, and deprivation are !!   Ha!  When I got home from RVN [Vietnam], I thought I was a 'big man, and too proud and big for my britches .... but in reality, I had so much to learn and experience !!   If only I had a more biblical rearing/ childhood, perhaps things might have been different.   But the apple doesn't fall far from the tree....  duh.  
       I am thinking now, that we are all in a long foot race, but it doesn't much matter who comes in first or second --- but who finishes that 'race of life !'   Who makes it to heaven ! 

The scary but true scenario down below [that is so important to read and absorb] is not meant to scare people,  but to prepare them NOW, for what will happen.    I have been a bible student for the past 40 years, but only learned the real TRUTH IN 1995, from a few smart Saints who had mercy on my poor soul, and showed me the Way.   I feel that I am in their debt until I die, but I know that Father God sent them to cross my path in life.   I have tried hard to emulate their actions ever since then, and brought that same truth to my wife, Sharon, and my son, Andy, both passed away -- breaking my heart into pieces, and crying a river or tears for a long time.  
      Would a loving God somehow bring me a long 4 hours' drive to the U.P. "following a liar" only to be deserted/ kicked out into the cold Winter snow in December, even after I led so many people to Christ, [with the help and direction of the H.S. --Holy Spirit], and planted so many seeds in the far North of this Country ? ? ?    And yet,  I get the impression that some hateful 'pastors' suppose that I might be locked out of heaven for some sins that I may have committed !   I don't feel the need to rehash my personal, private life here....  and I won't.   But it's strange how some folks like to teach:  "Once Saved -- always Saved."   But then later want to change the scriptures when they get angry with something, or don't get their way.... LOL.    Well,  I will tell them one thing for sure....  they will never ever get one thin dime from me again...  I promise, and I will never shake their hand again, either.   Sometimes I think these hypocrites are 'making it up as they go !'   I suppose I could move back to WI., where the I.Q. is a little bit higher and people understand English better,  but I don't feel I want to run away, at least at this stage of the game,  when the SHTF could come soon.   And if those goofs ever get really hungry, I might let them smell the tin foil wrapper of my Juicy Fruit gum package.   Joke.    Not even ONE of those Jokers ever bothered to see me after I left their 'Wisdom Hole.'   Sorry that I learn the hard way --- but I do learn.
    Well,  I guess I am saying too much, again,  but some smart VA doctors told me that my writing is great therapy for me....  and I am not in a FEMA camp, yet.  
     If you think this post/ subject has merit, or something that you could use, please drop me an email: 
      And my heart is with the good people in Germany right now, preparing for a possible war or major conflict within their country from the Islamic hordes invading them.   The good Russian people were  just a bit smarter by never letting the Muslims in -- in the first place....  LOL.   Hungary is doing a good job at keeping those ghetto people at bay right now, and really, who can afford them to eat you out of house and home  $$$$.  Big question:  Why can't other huge land masses of Islam take in all those Syrian "refugees ???"   Egypt,  Saudi Arabia, parts of Africa, etc.   But we all know the answer to that question... don't we ?   You see, it's the same with the phony 'Palestine ghetto people' who say that they want a larger piece of  Israel, so they can hurt the Jews more by carving up the Jewish home land.... duh.   Egypt or S.A. could easily take those fakers into their country and take care of them,  but they all hate God's Chosen People, the Jews, and want to destroy that nation.   I say, let those ghetto people eat pigs !   If they ever come knocking on my door, I will offer them some bacon without the eggs.    Times are rough.... Ha!  
      Well, I hope I will get some company tomorrow,  because it's been too long to be alone up here as Winter is coming.   I will be looking for a warm Winter blanket at Shopko, too, that is not made of Wool.   I have a feeling that this Winter will be extra COLD !  

Remember what I said before....  "Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to DO IT ! !"    Sometimes the modern day Pharisees like to heap heavy burdens on the flock members that they could never bare...     And sorry,  I just have too many debts to pay of my own to finance their frequent vacations $$$.      

Warm Regards,

"Iron sharpens Iron."   ---Proverbs 27: 17.

Debt Super Cycle Will Destroy U.S. Standard of Living Overnight “Leave Society Gasping and Stupefied”

America: The Highest Standard of Living
This article was written by Tom Chatham and originally published at his Project Chesapeake website.
Editor’s Comment: The reality is sad, but the population is not prepared to face the great crisis at hand.Overnight and with the heavy force of a tidal wave. The greatness and the normalcy of not having to struggle to meet basic needs, the standard of living that prosperous Americans have known all their lives is on the cusp of utter destruction. The social services and pensions are being deliberately abused, pressured, traded, undermined, looted from and neglected – only to accumulate impossible shortfalls in funding.
The financial security for retirement, and for those not working or depending upon benefits, is all prone to be deleted. What would happen if the Great Depression returned? Americans were once rural, rugged and dignified. Today, they are urban, delicate and debased, not to mention ignorant and dumbed down. Who among us is prepared to survive a true, long-term collapse? Fewer than you’d think…
How Will You Cope With A Lower Standard Of Living?
by Tom Chatham
The forces are mounting that will eventually overwhelm most Americans and send their standard of living to unknown depths. Americans that have only known the post WWII prosperity are ill equipped and educated to deal with depression level living. Easy credit and instant gratification have created a nation of whining, self absorbed, entitlement minded people with no moral or mental toughness.
Doug Casey believes we are headed for what he calls a super depression created by the ending of a debt super cycle. The bigger the debt cycle the bigger the depression that follows. That’s how reality works and most people are not prepared for reality.
When this depression, which has already started, gets momentum, it will overwhelm the plans of a society that is expecting to get things like social security, pensions and payouts from retirement plans they have paid into for many years. All of those things will disappear almost overnight and leave society gasping and stupefied over what to do. Their reactions will be to yell and scream and try to identify who to blame but the only person they should blame is the one in the mirror.
Many very smart people have raised the alarm and done their best to warn the sleeping public, but those slumbering masses have ignored the warnings and hit the snooze button one more time. The masses do not understand economics, do not want to understand economics and they will pay dearly for that ignorance in the coming days.
When the real unemployment rate becomes common knowledge as it increases substantially, people will be left to survive on what resources they have saved up outside the banking system that cannot be stolen by the politicians and bankers. That is a key point here. The assets you have outside the system that cannot be stolen from you with a few key strokes on some computer.
Those hoping for some miraculous event that will send the U.S. back to the days of manufacturing might and jobs for all will never see it happen. Those days are gone. The west line theory tells us our economy will slow down and become more modest as the shipping center of the world moves west to the next powerhouse region which is Asia. This is what history teaches us.
When people suddenly wake up one morning and they have no job, their retirement is gone and they need to care for their family, what will they do? When government services have collapsed and they suddenly realize they are now living in a third world country with few government services, what will they do? When the banks are closed and only a select few connected people have any type of money or access to goods, what will they do?
This is the reality that many people will face in the future and they have no idea how bad it can get. They refuse to contemplate the harsh reality they will be living in and take steps to mitigate the effects. To do so would be to acknowledge it could happen and they are taking personal responsibility. Personal responsibility is a dirty phrase in today’s entitlement society. To see some of the effects one only has to look at the collapse of society in Venezuela today to see what awaits.
When the Dollar Collapses, This is What WILL Happen in the United States!

When it happens it will all fall back to you to take responsibility for your family and take care of them for the duration. To do that you need to plan now for that eventuality and build up the resources you will need to provide food, shelter, clothing and security when the system fails to do it for you. You need to be Noah on his ark not the people watching as he floated away.
Having resources stored up is a must but it may not get you all the way through if the situation lasts for many years. That is why you need some type of plan to replace those resources as time goes by and have some way to generate some type of income or at least items to trade. Usable goods are for the short term and things like gold ,silver and production equipment are for the long term to help you get through the crisis with the least amount of pain.
Even with proper planning the days ahead will not be easy as the standard of living of society will fall substantially to levels only seen in failed third world countries or old pictures. The assets actually owned by people today is very small compared to how they live. They will default on their home loan, their car loan, and their credit card debt leaving them with very few real possessions and few ways to move what they have left even if they have some place to go. Ultimately these people will become the new serfs to the wealthy class that will take possession of anything of value. Feudalism will once again rule.
The lack of planning by society will make this a reality if it is allowed. What will you do when everything you have worked a lifetime for is suddenly taken away? Do you have a plan to keep what you have? Do you have a plan to make money when you cannot find a job? Do you have a way to take care of your family until things stabilize? Do you have a home you will not lose if the whole system breaks down? What will you do if electricity or fuel is too expensive to buy or not available to the general population? These are the questions you should be asking yourself now and you better have a good answer because your family will be asking them when the greater depression sets in.
