    The World Will Come to an End

    The World Will Come to an End
    By Laurence M. Vance
    October 10, 2017


    Obviously, the world did not come to an end last month on September 23 as some false prophets predicted. It is not even worth the time to discuss who made the predictions and why they made them.

    Here are eight other times the world didnít end when it was supposed to either.
    But claiming that the sky will fall or the world will come to an end is nothing new. Many people believe that if a certain thing happens then the world will come to an end. They may not say so outright, but judging from their reaction to certain proposals, that is their reaction.

    Liberals and Democrats are the worst, but conservatives and Republicans are sometimes just as bad, depending on the issue.

    Here are fifty things, the mention of which causes one or all of these groups to think the world will come to an end.

    The world will come to an end if Obamacare is repealed.
    The world will come to an end if all drugs are legalized.

    The world will come to an end if the federal budget is actually cut.
    The world will come to an end if all foreign aid is eliminated, including to Israel and Egypt.
    The world will come to an end if AMTRAK is privatized.

    Even if all of these things happened at once, the world would still not come to an end. What would happen is that a free society would emergeóa society that Americans have not lived in for many years.

    That's good stuff.....
    Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call "the Constitution" and the Declaration of Independence are not pretty much the same thing or "connected in spirit," or "two sides of the same coin." The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

    In other words, the world will come to an end if the human race doesn't get its way.





    That's typical anthropocentrism for ya!
