Folks, you better get ready and get your finances in order NOW if you want to have a little less discomfort dealing with what’s coming soon to America.

Proverbs 22:3 – A prudent one foresees the evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.

The cost of living is going to continue to go up, and probably much faster than it is now, depending on the upcoming elections. Vast portions of our food supply (corn) are being wasted (and subsidized) on Ethanol, driving up both fuel and food prices. Floods have ravaged a large percentage of the Midwest "bread basket" which is going to send food prices up even further and faster.

Gas and oil will continue to rise in cost because of the weak-willed, America-hating liberals, environmentalists and Democrats who continue block domestic oil drilling (and nuclear power), NOT because of polar bears or the red spotted worm flea, but because they WANT to handicap and destroy American superiority and independence. Rising oil costs mean rising EVERYTHING costs.

It is very possible that we are going to have a Democrat MARXIST (yes, Marxist Socialist Hyper-Liberal) as our next President, AND a Democratic majority in Congress. Once we do, you will see an American slide toward European Socialism (and decimation of our military) at breakneck speed: socialist health care, day care, education, and a long list of new welfare and federal government programs that will parallel a RAPID and SHOCKING rise in taxation on those of us who actually work hard, and contribute to society.

Europe (the other Westerners) is dying (spiritually, and physically given lower than replacement level birth rate) because of weak, government-dependent generations and cowardly leaders. The vacuum is being quickly filled with primitive Islamic extremism. (America is still slightly above a replacement birth rate but is rapidly dying spiritually as well; Canada is much closer to Europe than the U.S. on both counts)

The natural result for America, should this Socialist slide occur, will be rising unemployment, climbing inflation, price controls, the devaluing of the dollar, and then what? More government "solutions" of course that will only exacerbate and accelerate the process.

I’m not trying to "doom and gloom" you… but it’s stupid to ignore reality and pretend like this is not a VERY POSSIBLE, even probable, future.

Proverbs 22:3 – A prudent one foresees the evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.

You should:

  1. Get out of debt
  2. Downsize your lifestyle (smaller, less expensive)
  3. Sell what you don’t need
  4. Be READY to cancel services and features you don’t need (extra phones, cable, subscriptions, memberships, clubs, etc.)
  5. Learn how to reduce your personal expenses
  6. STOP incurring any more debt or things that require monthly payments or maintenance

That’s a few things to start with. Keep an eye on this blog as I begin to concentrate my advice on how to get out of debt, reduce expenses, increase income and manage your money.

You’ve got about a year or so before the socialist slide, higher taxes and rising prices really hit home, if that is the course we take. Don’t wait to act. Now is the time to prepare. Yes, McCain might get elected and we’ll have LESS government growth than with Obama, but he’s pretty liberal too, and loves to "cooperate" with the Democrats (President Bush has proven that even conservatives can double the size of the Federal government). America IS sliding towards European/Canadian Socialism… it’s just a matter of how fast.

Think about it… if you prepare for the worse now, you’ll be in GREAT shape even if the worse doesn’t happen. After 50 years of prosperity, it’s very easy to think "America will never change". You are making a mistake if you think that, as history proves to us beyond a DOUBT that things ALWAYS change. America is living on borrowed time, and every day of freedom and prosperity we enjoy now is strictly the grace of God being patient towards an increasingly God-rejecting and rebellious country.

I’m not an alarmist, but neither am I a blind optimist. America’s days of easy abundance, and super cheap consumerism are coming to a close. The prudent will prosper, and the foolish will suffer. For Christians, we must be the MOST prepared of anyone so that we are in a position to HELP others, and share the Gospel to the lost, hurting and confused. [TIPJAR]

FYI… I’m not talking here about the constant drumming by the liberal media about how bad the economy is and how "working people" are having to choose between food or heat. That’s just "I hate Bush" liberal propaganda that is used to get people mad at Conservatives, and elect Liberals. It’s the election of socialist Liberals that will actually make all this economic doom and gloom come to pass. The economy is actually pretty good right now, which makes it an even better time to prepare. It’s what the economy is GOING TO BE after this next election that is the concern.

Getting out of debt is probably the most important thing you can do. If you don’t know how, check out my book, Life Without Debt, where I show you how to get out of debt fast, and stay out of debt. Check it out here…

What are your questions about being prepared for our future?
