America descending into a Marxist state. Yeah, that's like an all meat pizza at 12:30 AM, minus the heartburn. You still going to stay up, though, trying to figure out a way to keep it from happening.
This is something that, while difficult to read, you need to read and then consider. I didn't want to, but as a long-time political semi-junkie, something like this is click bait for me. Considering it came from John Mauldin, who my frequent visitors know I carry in high regard, that carried a little extra push to click. Mauldin is no one's fool, and he has been thinking and writing on this subject for some time now.
This is the link for it on Mauldin's Outside the Box site, this is the link for it on Hillsdale College's Imprimis site. I wanted you to have those two links, because I wanted to encourage you to look around both sites. Consider signing up for both. They're excellent resources.
In the next day or two, I'm going to take Dr. Buckley's piece and apply it to my and my family's current situation, just so you can see how this works out in the real world. I suspect many of you have seen it first hand, but I want this out there for those who haven't seen it. It's very instructional when you haven't. I have a friend who has said that if you have a job (and by that he means a job that is paying an upper 5-figure or better salary plus benefits) you're OK, but if you don't, you're screwed. I'd like to demonstrate just how that statement works in practice, and how you can arrange thing to be sure "practice" doesn't happen to you.
