The karmic destiny of America has four staqes and we have already reached stage four, Bankruptcy ~ where America continues to pour its economic resources onto global military misadventures, such as Afghanistan, while draining the economic health and safety of its citizens : Allen L Roland
Because of the Cheney/Bush administration's illegal needless war and occupation of Iraq ~ where arrogance fully embraced incompetence and where hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and maimed ~ America started on the path of its own karmic downfall and Obama has done nothing to stop its momentum with his ongoing military buildup in Afghanistan.
We are now well beyond the point of no return for we have yet to acknowledge our own misdeeds, both done and left undone, and only the looming financial abyss awaits us.
Chalmers Johnson, Sorrows of Empire , calls it the coming of the four sorrows and, it would appear, we are well on our way toward embracing the fourth of these inevitable karmic messengers ~ Bankruptcy.
Four sorrows ... are certain to be visited on the United States.
Chalmers Johnson, Sorrows of Empire
Their cumulative effect guarantees that the U.S. will cease to resemble the country outlined in the Constitution of 1787.
" First, there will be a state of perpetual war, leading to more terrorism against Americans wherever they may be and a spreading reliance on nuclear weapons among smaller nations as they try to ward off the imperial juggernaut.
Second, is a loss of democracy and Constitutional rights as the presidency eclipses Congress and is itself transformed from a co-equal 'executive branch' of government into a military junta.
Third, is the replacement of truth by propaganda, disinformation, and the glorification of war, power, and the military legions.
Fourth and Lastly, there is bankruptcy, as the United States pours its economic resources into ever more grandiose military projects and shortchanges the education, health, and safety of its citizens."
Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a deep fall !
