Author’s note:

In part one, found here, I explained a bit of some very frightening and eminent problems facing America, and why it is so difficult to stop. We are headed for a fiscal cliff not only from several financial bubbles about to pop simultaneously, but from the devalue of the US Dollar by the printing of trillions, (from 10 to 18.7 trillion since Obama has been in office), and the inevitable obsolescence of the Petro Dollar. All of this is poised on a knife’s edge, and it is all mapped out in a new Porter Stansberry book called: America 2020, The Survival Blueprint, with an inspiring introduction by Dr. Ron Paul.

As I read it in one sitting, I saw that there is indeed hope, and yet, few will take the time to understand these very powerful and true solutions in a world of manipulation and chaos. There, I found several viable game plans, formulated from the sound reasoning of statistical historical data, eliciting a sigh of relief. There is hope there, not just to survive, but to flourish, and I suggest every American to read it.

This Is Why There Are No Jobs in America

By Porter Stansberry

I’d like to make you a business offer.

Seriously. This is a real offer. In fact, you really can’t turn me down, as you’ll come to understand in a moment…

Here’s the deal. You’re going to start a business or expand the one you’ve got now. It doesn’t really matter what you do or what you’re going to do. I’ll partner with you no matter what business you’re in – as long as it’s legal.

But I can’t give you any capital – you have to come up with that on your own. I won’t give you any labor – that’s definitely up to you. What I will do, however, is demand you follow all sorts of rules about what products and services you can offer, how much (and how often) you pay your employees, and where and when you’re allowed to operate your business. That’s my role in the affair: to tell you what to do.

Now in return for my rules, I’m going to take roughly half of whatever you make in the business each year. Half seems fair, doesn’t it? I think so. Of course, that’s half of your profits.

You’re also going to have to pay me about 12% of whatever you decide to pay your employees because you’ve got to cover my expenses for promulgating all of the rules about who you can employ, when, where, and how. Come on, you’re my partner. It’s only “fair.”

Now… after you’ve put your hard-earned savings at risk to start this business, and after you’ve worked hard at it for a few decades (paying me my 50% or a bit more along the way each year), you might decide you’d like to cash out – to finally live the good life.

Whether or not this is “fair” – some people never can afford to retire – is a different argument. As your partner, I’m happy for you to sell whenever you’d like… because our agreement says, if you sell, you have to pay me an additional 20% of whatever the capitalized value of the business is at that time.

I know… I know… you put up all the original capital. You took all the risks. You put in all of the labor. That’s all true. But I’ve done my part, too. I’ve collected 50% of the profits each year. And I’ve always come up with more rules for you to follow each year. Therefore, I deserve another, final 20% slice of the business.

Oh… and one more thing…

Even after you’ve sold the business and paid all of my fees… I’d recommend buying lots of life insurance. You see, even after you’ve been retired for years, when you die, you’ll have to pay me 50% of whatever your estate is worth.

After all, I’ve got lots of partners and not all of them are as successful as you and your family. We don’t think it’s “fair” for your kids to have such a big advantage. But if you buy enough life insurance, you can finance this expense for your children.

All in all, if you’re a very successful entrepreneur… if you’re one of the rare, lucky, and hard-working people who can create a new company, employ lots of people, and satisfy the public… you’ll end up paying me more than 75% of your income over your life. Thanks so much.

I’m sure you’ll think my offer is reasonable and happily partner with me… but it doesn’t really matter how you feel about it because if you ever try to stiff me – or cheat me on any of my fees or rules – I’ll break down your door in the middle of the night, threaten you and your family with heavy, automatic weapons, and throw you in jail.

That’s how civil society is supposed to work, right? This is Amerika, isn’t it?

That’s the offer Amerika gives its entrepreneurs. And the idiots in Washington wonder why there are no new jobs…

Author’s Note:

Though this essay was written five years ago, it is so timeless, and reliant, it is used as the first chapter in his new book. There is no doubt that America is self destructing, with corrosive economic mindsets, like cancers, eating us alive from the inside out, and the outside in.

It is said that we have the best Congress money can buy, with a wide spectrum of lobbyists controlling not only our purse strings, but powerfully influencing polices that have nothing to do with what is good for America, her sovereignty, her moral compass, her civil liberties, or her economic future. International corporations and parasitic countries, international banks and an unresponsive and unaccountable Federal Reserve System are selling our country and our children’s future on the back of their black bottom line. Our domestic manufacturing industry is intentionally sent overseas for more fertile opportunities using what can only be described as slave labor without taxes or safety restrictions. Products are produced for a consumer stimulated throw-away society based on debt, and an ever-dying middle class, with a domineering, Progressive, totalitarian government that manipulates and shreds our Constitution is growing unchecked in the midst of an uneducated and misinformed populous who can no longer care or even think for themselves, is unsustainable.

Scientifically designed propaganda by media, and government indoctrination in our schools systems have created a new form of American. A culture of need, breed to be weak-natured, immoral and selfishly motivated, they are conditioned to need government sustenance to survive, a welfare state from cradle to grave. The many orchestrated problems that plague us as a society were created by the power elite to divide and conquer every aspect of of our lives, in an endless loop of manipulation for power and control, and to realize this amazing concept, believe it or not, is half the battle won…
