It was predicted that if Barack Obama won the past election, America would fall to poverty, food shortages and famine. It is not surprising, since the U.S. is trillions of dollars in debt. Droughts have already plagued the country.
Other countries may not want to lend America any more money to pay the bills. Money does not stay stacked in banks for future use. It is passed around as loans and various payments, such as for cars, rent, food and other bills. Once the money stops circulating, banks go bankrupt.
There are too many seeking financial assistance. That drains assets.
We must all do our part to keep America financially healthy.
Everyone must pay their bills if they want to stay afloat financially, or America would become the poorest nation on Earth.
People also must stop wasting money on frivolities. Forget about the "must have" toys and electronics and concentrate on the necessities of life. People could plant gardens in the spring and learn to can food and dry fruits, etc., just as our ancestors did for their survival.
There is no Joseph in Egypt to save us from the coming famine this time.
