If you only watch the main media you may want to rethink that. There are many things taking place that could lead to the collapse of the petrodollar. http://www.naturalnews.com/048313_currency_war_Russia_petrodollar.html Without gold to back the American dollar and with China preparing its self to back the Yen with gold. The petrodollar will collapse if America and the EU continues its aggression against eastern affairs.
It is very simple, its called the Golden Rule, those who have the gold make the rules. It has always been that way and it most likely will stay that way. The days of pulling money out of thin air have come to an end.
I see no way for our governments to be able to come clean and tell the truth. They have dug us into a seriously deep hole. Ever since tricky Dick created the petrodollar and sold your souls to the Saudis the dollar was been doomed to crash.
This is not a good time to be living in a highly populated area. With a crash of the magnitude of which we are facing. Living in highly populated areas it a recipe for doom. There will be no food within ninety days at the most.
Our governments can no longer be trusted with our best interests. The corruption that is spreading like a cancer on steroids needs to stop. The Banking cartels need to be regulated or their greed will destroy our way of life. Remember what happens to all of us does not happen to any of them. They know what is coming and they have their gold. They will also not bail us out like we did them.
Luck for me and mine, the wilderness is my back yard.
