My business travels took me to Baton Rouge, Louisiana last week which, to be honest, is not one of my favorite places in the state (no offense to anyone who may be a resident). We stopped in at a local restaurant for some wonderful food and as we were slowing ambling to the car (trying to work off a little of the fried shrimp) and enjoying the nice, cool day I noticed this local magazine in the rack out front:
Needless to say the cover caught my attention and I picked up a copy to read at my hotel later that evening.
The cover article actually turned out to be some sort of reader survey/poll where folks talked about the issues that concerned them. It was a pretty bland article and nothing in it couldn’t have been written about most any city in the south or west of the nation. However, I have been unable to get the cover associated with that article out of my head.
Now I know this is the print magazine version of click-bait but still. It seems like the conversation in this country has shifted. A few years ago, people would have considered you a bit of a crackpot to talk of a revolution in this nation. A few months ago, people would have considered you a crackpot to if you said the revolution was inevitable. Now it appears that the semi-mainstream, slightly left of center media consider it an foregone conclusion that it will happen…
As you consider your preparedness plans you might want to make sure you keep something like this in mind. Most importantly, if you are not already doing so pray for our nation.
