Everyones heard of the boiling frog anecdote describing a frog being slowly boiled alive. That's if significant changes occur gradually, people will fail to react in time and will suffer the undesirable consequences.

Over the last century, Americans have become accustomed to a high standard of living. Some more than others, some less. We've always had the poor. And even including the poor, our consumption habits have grown indulgent compared to the rest of the world.

This easy living did not come easy, and some would argue we deserve the rewards that come with progress. The resources that enabled the wealth of this country, are increasingly coming from outside our borders. This is putting a strain on the rest of the world who also are enjoying robust economies better lives.

Mass consumption, produces mass inequality. They say, "old habits die hard." And this includes our government as well. To keep this level of consumption, our beloved FED has elasticized the currency to the point where it cannot be stretched any longer. Something is got to give!

In light of the events of the last boom and bust, the good news is, we're not frogs. And finally this time, it is evident we are sensing something is very wrong. Some of us are having a difficult time putting our finger on it, while others know very well what has occurred and what is about to happen. It's simple economics. Either we go through the pain now, or complete destruction later.

It is evident the American people must find a political solution to this urgent matter.

It's a good thing…people are protesting. Scream, shout, sing, beat the drums. We all have different ideas. That's what make us as a Nation, strong! But it is a time to come together.

Let 's go to Washington DC in the millions, and reclaim our lost liberties.
