What will be the straw event for the death of the USA?

History has recorded a straw event that occurred in various types of governing and Nations that led to their downfall. For example, the idiom saying:“The straw that broke the camel’s back.”   

Idiom Meaning (Merriam Webster)

: the last in a series of bad things that happen to make someone very upset, angry, etc.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb about how a straw event can lead to a revolution in history. For example, the Boston Tea party was an event that sparked the American Revolution.

King Solomon

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose (event) under the heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1)


and a time to every purpose (event) under the heaven; to every purpose of man that is carried into execution; for some are not, they are superseded by the counsel of God; some obstruction or another is thrown in the way of them, so that they cannot take place;

What’s My Point?

I made the following comment in a Citizen Tom post on the subject of BLM in regards to recorded history of final straw events.


BLM is promoting socialism or wealth redistribution. History has recorded the numerous times when the wealth divided nations and revolution took place.

The same scenario is now festering in the USA mainly the event or result of outsourcing manufacturing jobs and opportunities for the poor to become middle class rather than poverty and afford homes.

Trump recognized the need and desire by voters to return jobs to but, in my opinion, his main opposition is a concentration of some very wealthy people who have made a fortune by buying for $5 an apparel for example made in a foreign sweatshop country and reselling it for $50.

Frankly, in history, an event occurs that triggers revolution.

Sadly, during Trump’s term he has experienced the resistance of the power groups than own the press, the death of a black man on national TV, and COVID-19.
If he loses the next election, BLM will gain a foothold of power at the National level, in my opinion.

The present ultra-rich will get woke when that happens. What economic event may occur as a result of the 2020 election may be an even worse event for everyone including the ultra-rich.

Regards and goodwill blogging.

My point is while faith believers believe God has to the power to control every event that mortals choose, no one knows for certain what or when God will intervene to prevent the event or allow for the event to take place.

In My Opinion

The present wealth gap and political divisiveness coupled with the sinful changes of morality that have occurred over time could be the next final straw event to take place in history of the USA experiment in freedom and democracy.

Read the Source links below. In particular the link to an article in the Chicago Tribune on the subject of selective news to add credence to my comment made to Citizen Tom.

You Decide

Should we be concerned as voters that the 2020 election may be the final straw event to lead to the death of the USA?

Will 2020 Presidential election be a “woke “or “final straw” event in USA history?

Do you as a faith believer that this following statement?

“We must freely choose to bring order to our broken hearts if we want true freedom, and we must choose to not allow any one or anything to rob us of that God-given freedom.”
