America: The Grim Truth

Growing up in Canada, I was always subjected to a constant barrage of news reports, articles, entertainment shows, sporting events, etc.. that always pictured the United States of America as being the best country on the planet.   Maybe at some point years ago, that may have been true, but after years of seeing the real truth, reality has set in....America is a mess.  That once great nation is rapidly sliding into tyranny and its citizens are either too drugged up, brainwashed, or too complacent to do anything to stop it from happening!

To further show the real truth about America, I want to turn to a great article that I found through the website: www.cluborlov.blogspot.com, entitled: "America: The Grim Truth", and it is a real eye opener.  I am enclosing that entire article right here for my own readers to view:

America—The Grim Truth

[Guest post by Anonymous. I was planning to write something a bit like this, but found that someone has done some of my work for me. Please give it a read, while I concentrate on the part of the topic that interests me the most: "What's Keeping You Here?"]

[Update: Judging from a lot of the comments, many people seem to think that the rest of the planet might not offer any good places for American former middle class persons to continue to pretend that they are successful. I don't find this particularly relevant; the life of a refugee is rarely comfortable. Some people even think that the US military is somehow going to be helpful moving forward, (by stealing other countries' oil, I suppose). I can't think of an occasion when it was helpful, being incapable of victory and a huge waste of resources. Apparently, to stay in the US is to stay in denial; perhaps that is what it takes to make the continuous psychological trauma of living in this country bearable. The one encouraging sign is that this condition is curable: not a single expat has voiced anything but complete and enthusiastic agreement with this article.]

Americans, I have some bad news for you:

You have the worst quality of life in the developed world—by a wide margin.

If you had any idea of how people really lived in Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and many parts of Asia, you’d be rioting in the streets calling for a better life. In fact, the average Australian or Singaporean taxi driver has a much better standard of living than the typical American white-collar worker.

I know this because I am an American, and I escaped from the prison you call home.

I have lived all around the world, in wealthy countries and poor ones, and there is only one country I would never consider living in again: The United States of America. The mere thought of it fills me with dread.

Consider this: you are the only people in the developed world without a single-payer health system. Everyone in Western Europe, Japan, Canada, Australia, Singapore and New Zealand has a single-payer system. If they get sick, they can devote all their energies to getting well. If you get sick, you have to battle two things at once: your illness and the fear of financial ruin. Millions of Americans go bankrupt every year due to medical bills, and tens of thousands die each year because they have no insurance or insufficient insurance. And don’t believe for a second that rot about America having the world’s best medical care or the shortest waiting lists: I’ve been to hospitals in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Singapore, and Thailand, and every one was better than the “good” hospital I used to go to back home. The waits were shorter, the facilities more comfortable, and the doctors just as good.

This is ironic, because you need a good health system more than anyone else in the world. Why? Because your lifestyle is almost designed to make you sick.

Let’s start with your diet: Much of the beef you eat has been exposed to fecal matter in processing. Your chicken is contaminated with salmonella. Your stock animals and poultry are pumped full of growth hormones and antibiotics. In most other countries, the government would act to protect consumers from this sort of thing; in the United States, the government is bought off by industry to prevent any effective regulations or inspections. In a few years, the majority of all the produce for sale in the United States will be from genetically modified crops, thanks to the cozy relationship between Monsanto Corporation and the United States government. Worse still, due to the vast quantities of high-fructose corn syrup Americans consume, fully one-third of children born in the United States today will be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at some point in their lives.

Of course, it’s not just the food that’s killing you, it’s the drugs. If you show any sign of life when you’re young, they’ll put you on Ritalin. Then, when you get old enough to take a good look around, you’ll get depressed, so they’ll give you Prozac. If you’re a man, this will render you chemically impotent, so you’ll need Viagra to get it up. Meanwhile, your steady diet of trans-fat-laden food is guaranteed to give you high cholesterol, so you’ll get a prescription for Lipitor. Finally, at the end of the day, you’ll lay awake at night worrying about losing your health plan, so you’ll need Lunesta to go to sleep.

With a diet guaranteed to make you sick and a health system designed to make sure you stay that way, what you really need is a long vacation somewhere. Unfortunately, you probably can’t take one. I’ll let you in on little secret: if you go to the beaches of Thailand, the mountains of Nepal, or the coral reefs of Australia, you’ll probably be the only American in sight. And you’ll be surrounded crowds of happy Germans, French, Italians, Israelis, Scandinavians and wealthy Asians. Why? Because they’re paid well enough to afford to visit these places AND they can take vacations long enough to do so. Even if you could scrape together enough money to go to one of these incredible places, by the time you recovered from your jetlag, it would time to get on a plane and rush back to your job.

If you think I’m making this up, check the stats on average annual vacation days by country:

Finland: 44
Italy: 42
France: 39
Germany: 35
UK: 25
Japan: 18
USA: 12

The fact is, they work you like dogs in the United States. This should come as no surprise: the United States never got away from the plantation/sweat shop labor model and any real labor movement was brutally suppressed. Unless you happen to be a member of the ownership class, your options are pretty much limited to barely surviving on service-sector wages or playing musical chairs for a spot in a cubicle (a spot that will be outsourced to India next week anyway). The very best you can hope for is to get a professional degree and then milk the system for a slice of the middle-class pie. And even those who claw their way into the middle class are but one illness or job loss away from poverty. Your jobs aren’t secure. Your company has no loyalty to you. They’ll play you off against your coworkers for as long as it suits them, then they’ll get rid of you.

Of course, you don’t have any choice in the matter: the system is designed this way. In most countries in the developed world, higher education is either free or heavily subsidized; in the United States, a university degree can set you back over US$100,000. Thus, you enter the working world with a crushing debt. Forget about taking a year off to travel the world and find yourself – you’ve got to start working or watch your credit rating plummet.

If you’re “lucky,” you might even land a job good enough to qualify you for a home loan. And then you’ll spend half your working life just paying the interest on the loan – welcome to the world of American debt slavery. America has the illusion of great wealth because there’s a lot of “stuff” around, but who really owns it? In real terms, the average American is poorer than the poorest ghetto dweller in Manila, because at least they have no debts. If they want to pack up and leave, they can; if you want to leave, you can’t, because you’ve got debts to pay.

All this begs the question: Why would anyone put up with this? Ask any American and you’ll get the same answer: because America is the freest country on earth. If you believe this, I’ve got some more bad news for you: America is actually among the least free countries on earth. Your piss is tested, your emails and phone calls are monitored, your medical records are gathered, and you are never more than one stray comment away from writhing on the ground with two Taser prongs in your ass.

And that’s just physical freedom. Mentally, you are truly imprisoned. You don’t even know the degree to which you are tormented by fears of medical bankruptcy, job loss, homelessness and violent crime because you’ve never lived in a country where there is no need to worry about such things.

But it goes much deeper than mere surveillance and anxiety. The fact is, you are not free because your country has been taken over and occupied by another government. Fully 70% of your tax dollars go to the Pentagon, and the Pentagon is the real government of the United States. You are required under pain of death to pay taxes to this occupying government. If you’re from the less fortunate classes, you are also required to serve and die in their endless wars, or send your sons and daughters to do so. You have no choice in the matter: there is a socioeconomic draft system in the United States that provides a steady stream of cannon fodder for the military.

If you call a life of surveillance, anxiety and ceaseless toil in the service of a government you didn’t elect “freedom,” then you and I have a very different idea of what that word means.

If there was some chance that the country could be changed, there might be reason for hope. But can you honestly look around and conclude that anything is going to change? Where would the change come from? The people? Take a good look at your compatriots: the working class in the United States has been brutally propagandized by jackals like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. Members of the working class have been taught to lick the boots of their masters and then bend over for another kick in the ass. They’ve got these people so well trained that they’ll take up arms against the other half of the working class as soon as their masters give the word.

If the people cannot make a change, how about the media? Not a chance. From Fox News to the New York Times, the mass media in the United States is nothing but the public relations wing of the corporatocracy, primarily the military industrial complex. At least the citizens of the former Soviet Union knew that their news was bullshit. In America, you grow up thinking you’ve got a free media, which makes the propaganda doubly effective. If you don’t think American media is mere corporate propaganda, ask yourself the following question: have you ever heard a major American news outlet suggest that the country could fund a single-payer health system by cutting military spending?

If change can’t come from the people or the media, the only other potential source of change would be the politicians. Unfortunately, the American political process is among the most corrupt in the world. In every country on earth, one expects politicians to take bribes from the rich. But this generally happens in secret, behind the closed doors of their elite clubs. In the United States, this sort of political corruption is done in broad daylight, as part of legal, accepted, standard operating procedure. In the United States, they merely call these bribes campaign donations, political action committees and lobbyists. One can no more expect the politicians to change this system than one can expect a man to take an axe and chop his own legs out from underneath him.

No, the United States of America is not going to change for the better. The only change will be for the worse. And when I say worse, I mean much worse. As we speak, the economic system that sustained the country during the post-war years is collapsing. The United States maxed out its “credit card” sometime in 2008 and now its lenders, starting with China, are in the process of laying the foundations for a new monetary system to replace the Anglo-American “petro-dollar” system. As soon as there is a viable alternative to the US dollar, the greenback will sink like a stone.

While the United States was running up crushing levels of debt, it was also busy shipping its manufacturing jobs and white-collar jobs overseas, and letting its infrastructure fall to pieces. Meanwhile, Asian and European countries were investing in education, infrastructure and raw materials. Even if the United States tried to rebuild a real economy (as opposed to a service/financial economy) do think American workers would ever be able to compete with the workers of China or Europe? Have you ever seen a Japanese or German factory? Have you ever met a Singaporean or Chinese worker?

There are only two possible futures facing the United States, and neither one is pretty. The best case is a slow but orderly decline – essentially a continuation of what’s been happening for the last two decades. Wages will drop, unemployment will rise, Medicare and Social Security benefits will be slashed, the currency will decline in value, and the disparity of wealth will spiral out of control until the United States starts to resemble Mexico or the Philippines – tiny islands of wealth surrounded by great poverty (the country is already halfway there).

Equally likely is a sudden collapse, perhaps brought about by a rapid flight from the US dollar by creditor nations like China, Japan, Korea and the OPEC nations. A related possibility would be a default by the United States government on its vast debt. One look at the financial balance sheet of the US government should convince you how likely this is: governmental spending is skyrocketing and tax receipts are plummeting – something has to give. If either of these scenarios plays out, the resulting depression will make the present recession look like a walk in the park.

Whether the collapse is gradual or gut-wrenchingly sudden, the results will be chaos, civil strife and fascism. Let’s face it: the United States is like the former Yugoslavia – a collection of mutually antagonistic cultures united in name only. You’ve got your own version of the Taliban: right-wing Christian fundamentalists who actively loathe the idea of secular Constitutional government. You’ve got a vast intellectual underclass that has spent the last few decades soaking up Fox News and talk radio propaganda, eager to blame the collapse on Democrats, gays and immigrants. You’ve got a ruthless ownership class that will use all the means at its disposal to protect its wealth from the starving masses.

On top of all that you’ve got vast factory farms, sprawling suburbs and a truck-based shipping system, all of it entirely dependent on oil that is about to become completely unaffordable. And you’ve got guns. Lots of guns. In short: the United States is about to become a very unwholesome place to be.

Right now, the government is building fences and walls along its northern and southern borders. Right now, the government is working on a national ID system (soon to be fitted with biometric features). Right now, the government is building a surveillance state so extensive that they will be able to follow your every move, online, in the street and across borders. If you think this is just to protect you from “terrorists,” then you’re sadly mistaken. Once the shit really hits the fan, do you really think you’ll just be able to jump into the old station wagon, drive across the Canadian border and spend the rest of your days fishing and drinking Molson? No, the government is going to lock the place down. They don’t want their tax base escaping. They don’t want their “recruits” escaping. They don’t want YOU escaping.

I am not writing this to scare you. I write this to you as a friend. If you are able to read and understand what I’ve written here, then you are a member of a small minority in the United States. You are a minority in a country that has no place for you.

So what should you do?

You should leave the United States of America.

If you’re young, you’ve got plenty of choices: you can teach English in the Middle East, Asia or Europe. Or you can go to university or graduate school abroad and start building skills that will qualify you for a work visa. If you’ve already got some real work skills, you can apply to emigrate to any number of countries as a skilled immigrant. If you are older and you’ve got some savings, you can retire to a place like Costa Rica or the Philippines. If you can’t qualify for a work, student or retirement visa, don’t let that stop you – travel on a tourist visa to a country that appeals to you and talk to the expats you meet there. Whatever you do, go speak to an immigration lawyer as soon as you can. Find out exactly how to get on a path that will lead to permanent residence and eventually citizenship in the country of your choice.

You will not be alone. There are millions of Americans just like me living outside the United States. Living lives much more fulfilling, peaceful, free and abundant than we ever could have attained back home. Some of us happened upon these lives by accident – we tried a year abroad and found that we liked it – others made a conscious decision to pack up and leave for good. You’ll find us in Canada, all over Europe, in many parts of Asia, in Australia and New Zealand, and in most other countries of the globe. Do we miss our friends and family? Yes. Do we occasionally miss aspects of our former country? Yes. Do we plan on ever living again in the United States? Never. And those of us with permanent residence or citizenship can sponsor family members from back home for long-term visas in our adopted countries.

In closing, I want to remind you of something: unless you are an American Indian or a descendant of slaves, at some point your ancestors chose to leave their homeland in search of a better life. They weren’t traitors and they weren’t bad people, they just wanted a better life for themselves and their families. Isn’t it time that you continue their journey? 


NTS Notes:  One major fact that is missing in this article is the total control of the United States government and its foreign policy by the criminal state of Israel.  Other than that, the information presented is absolutely factual.

This is a real wake up call for my American readers.... Their once proud nation today is a shadow of its former self, and most Americans are doing absolutely nothing to stop the slide into tyranny.

Solutions?   One major point that I and others have always stressed is the necessity for America to end its debt enslavement by ending the fractional reserve debt based system imposed by the criminal Federal Reserve System.   Once that is done, the next step is to automatically canceling the debt owed to criminal private bankers immediately.  Taking money away from these criminals and putting it into the hands of the American citizens would do wonders in rebooting that nation!

Again, please feel free to comment at any time on this and any other articles in my blog.

More to come

Thanks for posting the article, NTS.

Makes for depressing reading, huh, particularly if one's an American.

Commented on your posting of it over at Chuckyman's.

Thanks for the comment...I have been waiting for the barrage of negative comments to come, and they may come yet..

Depressing? Yes, but because I live in Canada, it is still as an outsider looking in....

But what is happening in America is also happening here and guaranteed elsewhere...Thanks to a never ending debt enslavement system...

Hi there NorthernTruthSeeker. This is my first time here after a fan of this site pointed me in your direction.

Great post and an excellent commentary NTS. All the big name truthtellers seem to ignore the 800lb gorilla in the room. The Zionists and their poisoned statelet on the med are the shock troops and commissars for the central banksters. Tops marks for driving that point home.

A very good article and sadly
I can connect to all the scenarios
presented. The really sad thing
is the American people will do
nothing to stop this descending
spiral until it is too late. America
is rotting while an illegal Israel blooms. Coincidence?

The Zionist rulers are probably listening right now so I'll write in code--To the feeble-minded moron that runs this website: Go back to school and finish your GED. You might be able to get a job and buy nicer trailer than the one you are in right now, or perhaps even some new false teeth. Best of luck, and until then, keep up the good work, and watch out for those Jews! (My plumber is Jewish, I think. He told me that he has family in NY too! Probably a conspirator, huh? Any advice?

Anon @10:38 Such arrogance can only be the personality trait of a khazar gangster.

You start with the implied supremacy of the synagogue of Satan. Then you denigrate the IQ, social status and personal hygiene of the site owner. Next you recommend a spell in the mind washing factory of academia and finish off with a plumber joke.

My advice is to call your supervisor. Is this a new line in megaphony scripting for the Yeshiva students? You didn’t take any time to build empathy with the site or establish bona fides. You failed that test.

Northerntruthseeker said...

Chuckyman... I suspect that he put up the first part as part of his idea of "code"....

I left it up because it was all over the place, and somewhat laughable...

I sometimes wonder what the Hasbara think of this site (and others)... I know they are watching... But it is so easy to suss them out instantly, and to see that they are at a lost by the comments they send in....

chuckyman said...

Indeed NTS. Every now and then we pick up a hitcher. Sometimes it’s better for an occasional traveller to hit the nail on the head. That way they get less info for a psychological profile on the web host.

The good news is that there are far too few of them to really keep an eye on us. A jewish plumber – that’s funny. Cleaning up their own effluent – never happen.

The American people are so pissed off by the current state of affairs that they want to fight each other. I see rudeness,road rage,and disrespect daily.Still the stupid American is happy as long as he can have his beer & pizza and root for his favorite ape running to make that touchdown or his daughter giving birth to another Obama baby,thats accepted now. This country is finished.

I'd like to leave this so called free nation. Trouble is where to go. Autrailia and New Zealand are now desecrated by white women mating with blacks and producing Aborigine Obama babies and Miori Obama babies. These 2 countries have also been wrecked by the Jews promoting Homosexuality and Lesbianism. They even host queer parades. Iran has the right idea.

All I can say is that it's over. The days of good and plenty are gone. No good jobs,no health car,no respect,no family values,no freedom. Thank the scum that you elect to Congress. Your the blame also for buying Import cars. There is enough blame to go around, but mostly the US Government wrecked this nation. As the Pigs in Washington get fatter, you become more poor. When it's all over it will be an Soviet Union type "worker" nation. Is there an answer? Yes,move to another country.

If you look at the record, every key post in every administration has been filled by Jews. That should tell you something! The President is nothing more than an errand boy for his masters in Tel Aviv! That includes the Congress and the Senate. In 2012 vote all this trash out of office!

The CIA has hand a big hand over the years causing misery and destruction. It is probably the biggest terrorist and organized crime organization in the world. They have their nose in every nation, friend or foe. They have overthrown governments,murdered,transported dope,kidnapped,extorted, you name it. They are nothing more than a half-assed world police force policing third world countries so that the share holders back home in the US reap profits. This organization should be disbanded.

For all practical purposes that great American Flag that you salute might as well have fifty stars of david on it! You think that Washington,D.C. is your capitol but it isn't, it's Tel Aviv,Israel. Washington is nothing more than Israel's forward base of operations. This filth that you elect to represent you bows to their masters in Israel and then pisses on the Constitution. Before your raped of your Medicare,Medicaid,and Social Security, vote these bastards out of office in 2012!

Northerntruthseeker said...

Well... I do not live in the US, but I can see your point about the 50 stars may as well be the stars of David on the American flag, considering how much these criminals have hijacked America!

But living in Canada, our Maple Leaf may as well be a star of David as well! considering how much this country is a tool of the Zionist Jews!

Dear Northertruthseeker, You have a great WEB site! I hope it reaches out to many people. I've only been to Canada once in 1974 and I seen alot of blacks in Toronto and they where more cocky than in the US. Do you have pat-downs at airports in Canada? Keep up the good work.

Northerntruthseeker said...

Anonymous.. I do not live anywhere near Toronto... I live a lot further west... over a thousand miles west in fact...

Canada is a huge country, and bigger than the United States.... Most people are always associating Canadians with those that live in Southern Ontario, and not the rest of the country.

Thanks for the compliment... And no, I have not been aware of the racial problems in Toronto... MY focus has always been to go after the real criminals... The Zionist Jews that have ruined this country, and yours!

And no pat downs at the international airport here... Not sure about Toronto though...

Very well said. I think that you can educate people of the facts,but the Zionist Jews who have wrecked Canada, the US and other countries has become a malignant tumor that grew out of control and sadly nothing can be done except to try and vote the elected officials who serve Tel Aviv out of office but then there is always another to take up their mantle and be an acolyte for Israel. It's like a no win situation.

I can say from experience that Antwerp,Belgium is another country where the Zionist Jews have built a nation inside the host nation! They control all of the diamond industry there. There are more Jews in the US than in occupied Palestine! Why is it carved in stone that a Jew always is anointed as head of the so called Federal Reserve? The grim truth is that these people are a cancer that destroys the tissue of once great nations. The days of Ozzie & Harriet are over!

I thought that Canada might have been man's last horizon, it's a shame that it's been infiltrated by Zionist Jews. I can't believe the American people are so stupid to keep electing the same filth in Congress election year after election year who bow and answer to Israel's becon call. It seems that even the US dependencies have been wrecked. Everything the US touches is destoyed just like everything is destroyed in the hands of the Jew. America is hated world wide and it isn't the indiviual American's fault. Everything is so screwed up that US citizens must be careful where to travel thanks to the foreign policy in Washington.
