As our criminal government moves to totally de-industrialize the once great nation of America, one of the most visible signs of our “progress” is the degradation of public infrastructure.
The WSJ reports:
SPIRITWOOD, N.D.—A hulking yellow machine inched along Old Highway 10 here recently in a summer scene that seemed as normal as the nearby corn swaying in the breeze. But instead of laying a blanket of steaming blacktop, the machine was grinding the asphalt road into bits.
“When [counties] had lots of money, they paved a lot of the roads and tried to make life easier for the people who lived out here,” said Stutsman County Highway Superintendant Mike Zimmerman, sifting the dusty black rubble through his fingers. “Now, it’s catching up to them.”
Outside this speck of a town, pop. 78, a 10-mile stretch of road had deteriorated to the point that residents reported seeing ducks floating in potholes, Mr. Zimmerman said. As the road wore out, the cost of repaving became too great. Last year, the county spent $400,000 on an RM300 Caterpillar rotary mixer to grind the road up, making it look more like the old homesteader trail it once was.
Paved roads, historical emblems of American achievement, are being torn up across rural America and replaced with gravel or other rough surfaces as counties struggle with tight budgets and dwindling state and federal revenue. State money for local roads was cut in many places amid budget shortfalls.
This is what eco-terrorists consider progress.
A return to horse-back riding.
Eventually the infrastructure will degrade to the point where one either needs a tank or a horse to get to work in the morning.
Since only a few hundred federal reserve bankers will be able to afford tanks, the rest of us common folk will be relegated to horses.
It should be plainly obvious that our economic situation was caused entirely by the criminal federal government and is being made worse daily.
The destruction of the economy will not end until the federal government itself is destroyed by its own hand. The federal government is on a suicide mission. Because they are engaging in monetary destruction, they will eventually implode the dollar. Which will itself turn the federal government into an ineffectual powerless body.
Unfortunately that point will not be reached without a lot of chaos and needless destruction, much like the former Soviet Union’s collapse.
