Americans Newest Thrat




The American people have a new threat to deal with and it is causing a lot of panic and fear. This new threat isn't from another country. This threat is coming from our own government. They have been wrecklessly playing a game of Russian Roulette and we the people are the victims of their dysfunctional method of managing what happens to us. For many weeks we were threatened with the raising of the debt ceiling and the consequences of the bills not getting paid if this bill was not passed. It created an unnecessary panic among the people on Social Security and other government funded programs and our military personnel. The government is holding our every move in doubt. Now it's the economic downfall of the stock market.

We were promised if the bill was paid that we would not be downgraded and the other countries could count on us paying them back. Now after all is said and done it was simply a lie. The American people are now facing exactly what would have happened if we had not passed the bill. Higher utilities,gas, groceries, mortages, food, and clothing are expected to sky rocket. Not only has the government created panic now we are paying the price for an over greedy government that had the resources to pay their bills before the debt ceiling bill was ever passed. This wasn't suppose to happen. We the people are now the afraid and the new crisis that we will be facing with the uncertainty of how well protected is the Social Security and why is medicare on life support?


The economic downgrade will continue to decline. There are no real promise that it will improve. I have heard it said that we are in a recession but that's not what it is, it's a new term that is suppose to be less threatening for the word depression and that is what we are in a depression. Gasoline and other commodities are going up and the pay remains the same. There is no relief in sight. The American people have been put under a high alert of panic and with panic people do stupid things. The crime rate will triple in a few months and murder will be on the rise. They will be more buglaries due to the fact peole will do anything to survive. This is what the American government has done to its people. They will be more hungry people this year alone because the food stamp program will be cut to limited funding. All these factors are threats to the American people.

The new threat has people blamming other people for the mess that we are in. This mess was brought on by the government. They have misappropriated funds and have now ran our country in the gutter. Other countries are now laughing at the U.S. because we are suppose to be this great nation and now we aren't so great. We are now like any other country that have a bunch of people running our government that act like children rather than adults passing the blame back and forth instead of doing something. I say stop kicking the damn can and do something for our economy. We are slowly slipping down a slippery slope of no return.

The newest threat from this dysfunctional government is, they are telling the American people what to do and they can't even balance a budget for the country. It's more or less becoming a communistic ran government where we the people have limited say and limited everything. Nobody asked the American people anything. The government just done what they wanted. The treasury secretary needs to resigns because he started this fear among the people and caused the chain of events that have led up to this point. He made false reports about the government being broke when infact the government had the money to pay it's bills. He threatened the america's poorest with posionest lies and held their checks as a bargaining chip for his own greedy need. If this isn't a threat then I don't know what to call it.

In conclusion there should be an over throw of the government that has caused this fear among the american people and how far they are willing to go before the poor or put in concentration camps? The dysfunctional government has put the American people in jeopardy and in fear with it's lies and scare tatics. The threat has put the economy in the hole and the people are paying for it. Every thing we own will soon be taken away and the rights of the people trampled on. This is the new threat that is soon becoming a reality and when this happens the government has no one to blame except of course each other.
