The Devaluing of America

Yesterday my wife and I ran errands.  We always try to pass out tracts and witness when we go to town, and we had a great opportunity to witness to a Salvation Army volunteer.  But that's a different story.
While traveling, we saw a sign on the side of the road that said, "Moving Sale."  Loving Garage Sales, we decided to stop, so we followed the signs to a beautiful home right on the water.  As we went inside we met the owner who told us about why he was selling everything.  His story was heart-breaking. 
He told us that three or four years ago his home was valued at 1.2 million dollars.  The plummeting economy slowly chipped away at the value of the house and now the house is estimated to be worth only about $700,000.  The problem is the man said he owed more than that on his mortage.  And the reason he was selling everything was in the hopes of being able to make a few more payments on his mortage and hope someone will buy it before the bank forecloses on him. 
His story was so sad.  He said for five years he had the house on the market.  Not only had he bought the home years ago as an investment, and built many add-ons to the home to raise it's value, but he seriously thought he would eventually make money on the house and be able to sell it someday for a profit.  Especially since it was right on the water, with a long pier out on the water.
As I looked at his situation, I was saddened greatly.  I also looked around the neighborhood and all the homes in the area were also in foreclosure and up for sale.  What was worse was the majority of the homes were Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Remember them?  Yep, they are the GOVERNMENTAL agencies that years ago the government started to "Help People."  Uh, huh.  Right.  (to be read sarcastically).
So let me see if I can get this straight and explain this for you folks that don't know what happened.  Yep, the government passed laws to "help" people which forced banks to give loans to people who they knew couldn't pay them back.  What happened?  People didn't pay them back.  They couldn't as the economy failed, and the banks didn't get their money back.  So we had to "bail" those banks out, as they were "too big to fail." 
But what about this guy?  Who bails him out?  Nobody.  He lost everything, and he gets nothing in return.  What a sad state.  But that's how America has been devalued.  Things are worse less, while the prices people owe for them remain the same.  Who gets rich?  Bankers.

The Great Divide

The Bible says, "...Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand." (Matthew 12:25)

And as we look at the United States of America, we find that it is a nation divided.  Half of the country is pro-American, pro-Constititution, pro-Gun rights, pro-freedom, while the other half is pro-communism, pro-socialism, pro-progressivism, pro-anarchy.

So which side will win?  That's not the issue.  The issue is that there is DIVISION rather than UNITY.  And the Bible clearly teaches us that it is the division that will bring desolation and the fall of this great nation.

On one side we have those who think they president is not doing enough.  But on the other side, there are those who think he's done too much already.  So who is right?  It all depends on what it is you want him to do.  If you are a socialist, a communist, and an anarchist, you want him to do as much as possible to bring in chaos and to destroy the system in order to set up your own ideals.  However, if you are a constitutionalist and freedom lover, you feel he has overstepped his boundaries laid forth in the constitution, and is guilty of pushing upon the American citizens things that are not only wrong, but anti-american!

So which side is right?  That's a subject for debate.  But we won't focus on that here.  What we will look at is the "GREAT DIVIDE" between them.  It's almost as if those on both sides are on opposite extreme.  They are so far on one side or the other that they cannot and will not compromise and meet in the middle.   And, this is exactly what we are seeing in the news today.  Politicians have drawn the line in the sand and told others that they must get on this side or that side.  But this line-drawing is what throughout history has always led to strives, envy, hatred, and even wars!   It's dividing people so that they will fight one another.  And the division seeks to keep them apart rather than uniting them on the things they can agree on.

This is exactly what the devil wants, and what he specializes in.  He wants people to hate one another and be so far to the opposite side of the spectrum of each other that they can never get along.  This assures him that they will be long time enemies, and he will seek to work his best at bringing out the worst in both parties, making them lash out against each other.  Eventually, their anger will turn to hatred, and then to violence, and then countless hundreds of thousands of people will get hurt.  This delights the devil, who takes solace in the pain of others.

So what is it exactly that Americans are divided on?  That's a good question, for as you look at what it is that divides them, you find an interesting thing.  It appears that one side is good and one side is evil.  It further seems that one side is influenced by God and the Bible, while the other side is heavily saturated with Luciferian doctrines, and satanism.   So who are these two sides, and what exactly divides them?  Let's look at a few of the key dividing doctrines.

If you know American politics, you know of the two-party system that dominates it.  There are Republicans, and Democrats, and most Americans are either one or the other.  Of course there are those who call themselves "Independents" but most of them would admit that their beliefs and political ideals line up with one of these two parties.

So who are the parties and what do they believe?  Well, it used to be easy to define them, but today it's not that easy, for there are those who have infiltrated both parties which don't always adhere to the main party line.  This is why it's so common to hear of politicians "switching parties" nowadays.  They jump ship and go from one side to another.  Why?  Because they see their parties are "changing" and they aren't what they used to be.  Either that, or the politicians themselves have changed, and that's why they choose to leave their party for another.

But the division in American is much more than just Democrat vs. Republican.  In fact, it's hard to find any differences between the Dems and the Reps, for both of them are now doing the same things. 

So what is the real factor that divides us politically?  Some say it's really Liberals vs. Conservatives.  And this makes more sense.

Let's look briefly at the difference between these two groups, for it's there that we find the dividing lines.

First, Liberals take a weak stance on the constitution while Conservatives take a strong stance on it, believing we should take it literally.  Why is this?  It's because the Constitution is a document that relied heavily upon GOD and man's GOD-GIVEN rights.  Liberals, however, don't seem to like God too much, as the majority of them have been educated in secular schools to despise God.  Thus, they believe that it is GOVERNMENT that gives man rights, not God.   Thus, liberals are "anti-God" while they are pro "playing God" in their politics.

Second, Liberals believe in governmental welfare, or forced political giving to those who don't have.  Conservatives also believe in giving, but they stress that it should be done only by indivuals or churches, and not by citizens through forced taxation.  This is an important point, as the Bible teaches that a man should "work by the sweat of his brow" for what he has.  He's to work hard and "enjoy the fruits of his labor."   Liberals, however, appear to be more in favor of Communism, in which the government owns everyone and everything and it decides what a person should and shouldn't have.  In Communism, a person is not self-sufficient, as God intended them to be, but rather completely dependent upon the government.  This kicks God out and sets the government up as God.  Once again, liberal thought and doctrine spits in the face of God and the scriptures.

Third, Liberals often are in favor of abortion, a horrible practice of killing babies before they are born.  They claim it is the woman's "right" to choose to not have a baby, and they have passed laws in favor of such.  But Conservatives feel this is wrong, as it clearly is the taking of human life without the individual baby having the choice to live or not.  What does the Bible say about abortion?  A lot actually.  For in the Bible, we are further told that, "LIFE" is in the blood.  That means when a child is formed in it's mother's womb and it begins producing it's only blood supply, it is a life.  To take away that life is MURDER in the scriptures.
So why do Liberals defend women in their desire to murder their own children, and attack conservatives who look at this as a pagan, immoral practice?  Could it be once again that liberals are against God?

Finally, liberals are in favor of trying to "right" what they view as "wrongs."  They engage in racial policies like affirmative action, in gender policies like woman's lib, and more.  And instead of allowing laws to apply to all people alike, they seek to grant certain rights or privileges on certain classes, genders, and races that are unfair to others.  Why is this?  They claim it's just "social justice" but who died and made them the judge?
Conservatives, on the other hand, believe in the Constitution, and they believe that ALL CITIZENS are equal under the law.  Thus, they look at liberal policies as not only unconstitutional, but also irrational.  If you look at them further, they are often "anti-biblical" as well.

So who is supposed to be in charge of "justice."  Who is to judge others for all the wrong in the world?  The Bible says it's GOD who is supposed to judge everyone in the last day.  So why do liberals think that it's their job to JUDGE everyone and then hand out decrees and laws that are to "right the wrongs" of society.  Could it be they are once again guilty of "playing-God?"

Clearly conservatives and liberals disagree with one another.  No one would argue with that.  But it's strange that no one seems to be pointing out the fact that LIBERALS almost always are on the side that is against God and the Bible.  And often, they are trying to play God themselves.  Why is this?  What is the reason that liberals are so "anti-God?"  Could it be they are influenced by satanic forces? 

Obviously there is something to that, especially when so many liberals love the book, "Rules for Radicals," a work that was dedicated to "LUCIFER!"   Hmmm.  Interesting, isn't it?

Further, most liberals learn their liberal doctrines in SECULAR colleges, which oftentimes are full of professors who are renowned ATHEISTS who continually riducule and downgrade the idea of God.  And while in college, many students often join organzations like Skull and Bones, the Jason Society, etc., which are groups started by people who were into LUCIFERIANISM, and which teach people how to gain power and influence in the world.   After college, many people join groups like the MASONS, which according to Albert Pike is the "oldest religion" and is in fact, the worship of LUCIFER.

Liberals, also enjoy political organizing, and love to fund groups like ACORN, SEIU, and others that further endoctrinate people and propogate their anti-God and anti-bible ideals.

Now back to our topic at hand:  THE GREAT DIVIDE in our country.  Could it be the divide comes from the liberals dividing themselves from what America was founded on?  Could it be that they are going the way of evil, while conservatives are trying to converse the foundations of America, which was founded on God and the Bible?  More plainly stated, "Could liberalism be nothing more than a movement of Satan to destroy America?"

These questions you must answer yourself.  All I know is there is DIVISION, and it's more rampant than it's ever been before.  At first, America was founded as a Christian nation.  But those Christian teachings have quickly erroded away.  Now, it appears America is more of a pagan nation.   And today we find conservatives who are trying to hold on to the Christian ideals of the founders and the Constitution are looked upon as "old fuddy-duddies" by modern liberals who think of themselves as "cultured," "refined," and "modernized."  Yet, these same liberals don't seem to understand that they have been, and still are, rebelling against what founded the nation they are living in.  They are divided from what America was founded on, and are actively showing their divisive spirit as they openly protest, campaign, and endoctrine others to follow them and their teachings.  So dogmatic are they in their ways that they have become militant and are starting to fight all those who don't go along with them in their fanaticism.  They truly believe they are right, and don't see how far they've gone down the leftist path to destruction. 

What do conservatives do?  Sadly, many of them have given up and are even joining the liberals.  They are turning from what they once knew and believed, and accepting liberal teachings.  But they can only go so far.  They are "moderates."  But their inablility to stand for what they believe in only empowers the liberal agenda.  While those who do stand are viewed as "extremist" "right-wing" groups. 

Division ensues and liberals go farther to the left, taking some with them, but forcing others even farther to the right.  The division is getting greater and worseing more and more.  But no one seems to say anything about it?

Do you see the great divide?  What do you think should be done?

How to Govern America Properly

Our country is in a mess!  And no one can argue with that statement.  Economically, it's in decline, spiritually, it has strayed from God, and morally it has adopted many beliefs that undermine the very moral fabric of our society.  In short, our country is going to Hell in a hand basket!

So, who's to blame?  The answer most often heard from pulpits across our land is that it's all "OUR" fault for electing politicians who are "progressives," "socialists" and "communistic."  But I'm so tired of the blame being placed upon us.  It's not our fault.  It's the POLITICIANS fault, for it is they who are doing all the bad stuff in passing laws that only seek to "regulate" more, rather than allowing a free market system to work.

It's like Benjamin Franklin said, "He who governs LEAST governs BEST!"  If only politicians would realize this.  If only their platform were, "Vote for me, and I'll do NOTHING if elected!" 

The other day I was thinking about how to solve all the problems in America.  And I thought about it as a corporation.  In a corporation, people own part of the company and own STOCKS.  In other words, they are part owners in the business.   They have a stake in the company. 

Now, when the business does well, they receive either dividends or an increase in value of their stock.  So potentially, the owners of the business (the shareholders) have the potential to prosper financially if the company makes a profit.  However, they also take a loss if the company goes in the red.  Thus, the companies very reason for existence is to make money and feed its owners.

So why isn't it like this in America?  Why can't we run this nation the same way?  Why can't Americans who own property (i.e. own stock) in America prosper as the country prospers?

We as a nation are now over 7 trillion dollars in debt.  And sadly, the American people are expected by those in power to foot the bill.  But they had no say in the spending of that money.  So why should they have to pay it?

The governing of this country is completely backwards.  It's not like a business trying to make a profit, rather it's like a company that's trying to run a deficit on purpose, so it can sell more stock and try to get more cash to do more.  The only thing is that its stock is worthless and the whole world knows it!

What if we started over in America?  What if we got rid of the debt and started all over?  And what if, (go with me here for a minute,) what if instead of the government LOSING money, it actually MADE money? 

What if the American government stopped giving money away to everybody and spending on frivolous things of no lasting value, and instead INVESTED the money it receives in taxes and uses that money to make more money to in turn give back to the American people, the shareholders of the nation?

If only things worked that way!  For I read a year or so ago that the nation of America has enough natural resources and minerals in its soil that if divided equally among it's poplulace, every American could have something like 5 million dollars apiece (I don't remember the exact number, but it was in the millions).

Can you imagine?

What if you were an American citizen, and when you are born, you were given 5 million dollars.  They just gave it to you.  Wouldn't that be awesome?
Why?  Because it was what the nation had and it was a just nation that EQUALLY divided its wealth with its citizens, just like a company giving dividends to its stock holders.  Wouldn't that be cool?

If you lived in Alaska, you'd know what I'm talking about.  In Alaska they give people about 1500 dollars a year, just to live in that state!  Where does it come from?  Is it tax money taken and given out as welfare?  No!  It's money from the OIL COMPANIES, who take oil out of Alaskan soil who in turn pay the citizens of Alaska for allowing them to let them take their oil.  That's too cool!  

But alas, in our country today, the Government does not want to do such a thing.  Instead, they want to tax the rich to give to the poor.  But that's not right!  Why should one class of people get something for nothing while another class works to get what they have???  That doesn't make sense.

If I were in charge, I know what I would do.  I would make America run like a business, and I would try to make that business make a profit, and not run in the red.   I would then make sure to send dividends to NATURAL BORN CITIZENS of this country.  (Note, I would only give it to people who were BORN here, and not to immigrants.  There are many reasons for this, but I can't go into that now.)

This would be an amazing endeavour.  It would mean that all taxes given to the government MUST be used to turn a profit.  In other words, they must be INVESTED in such a way as to make sure Americans got back MORE than what they paid in.

Can you imagine a system like this?  America would be the greatest country in the world!

So if a company can run itself as a business and make a profit, why can't the federal government?  

That's a good question.  The answer is because the federal government is not in the business of MAKING money, it's only in the business of SPENDING money.  And it does so a little too effectively (being now over 7 TRILLION dollars in debt).  But where does this money go?   The answer may surprise you.  It goes several places.  First it goes overseas.  That's right.  It goes to foreign countries and not to its own citizens!  Through USAID and other organizations the U.S. government gives away money to foreign nations and gets absolutely nothing in return.  Who's money is it?  Why it's the American citizen's money!  So why do others who aren't even Americans entitled to it?

Can you imagine if a private company did this?  Just imagine if they sold stock in their company, then they took that money and just gave it to their competition with no expectation of it being repaid.  What would happen?  Why the stock holders would get angry and dump all their stock and the company would go under! 

Er, um, maybe I've said too much.  Cause that's exactly what's happening with the U.S.  It's spending all it's money and getting the stock holders in debt, all while claiming that they have to give "stimulus" in order to get the economy running again.  In other words, they believe you have to "spend your way out of debt!"  (No, really, that's what several politicians have actually said on tape!)

The American government also spends money on domestic projects that are not profitable and not returnable.  For example, we are hearing lately of the SOLYNDRA scandal, in which MILLIONS (or was it BILLIONS, I forget), of American's tax payer's money was giving to this company, and then it later went belly up and bankrupt.  How does this happen?  But it does and it happens quite often.

If you don't remember anything else in this blog, just remember this:  "THIS IS NOT HOW YOU GOVERN A COMPANY, MUCH LESS A NATION!" 

To give away the stockholders money to anyone and everyone with NO EXPECTATION of receiving anything in return is not only negligant but CRIMINAL!  It is not only bankrupting the nation, but the citizens as well, as the debt incurred leads to high and massive inflation, making a person's money worth less and less.  It's double robbery, taking for them and spending without their say so, and then making what they have left over worth next to nothing.

So with this sad expose of the American situation exposed, the question is, "Would you like to know how to fix the problem?"  The answer is simple, just do what the BIG BANKS do.  That is, (and please get a hold of this), DON'T GIVE AWAY ANYTHING!!!  (unless it's maybe a toaster!)

In order to make a profit, you must sell something that is worth something.  That's common business knowledge.  But if you already have money, the best way to make money is to LOAN it at interest, and not GIVE it away.  For the simple fact is that once it's given, it's gone, and you'll never see it again, and if you borrowed it to give away, then all you get in return is more DEBT.  And what's worse is that if you borrow money and then you give it away for nothing, you end up still having to pay it back!  How is that profitable?  How does that make business sense?

Now here's where the difference is.  Corporations and Banks make profit.  They either sell a product or lend money.  But the problem with them is they usually are corrupt.  They will sell cheap products for high prices, or they will loan money at high interest rates, and this is how they profit off of people. 

This used to not be the case, but with the great lack of morals in our society this is what happens, as greed usually takes over in a person's heart and they seek to "cheat" people by selling them less then adaquate products for overinflated prices.

This is a sad situation, but even though it's taking advantage of a free market system, that doesn't mean that a free market system is bad.  Captialism must have morality to work.  Unscrupulous capitalists are nothing more than thieves.  While moral and honest capitalists are hardworking men who are only trying to put food on the table and take care of their families.

So how should the government govern?  Simple.  They should stop GIVING money, but simply LOAN it.  And they should loan it as very low interest rates. 

For example, the price of college is outrageous nowadays.  So why doesn't the government say, "Okay, we will loan you the money at 1 percent interest." 

Then the person can get a loan and actually afford to pay it back.  He comes out better, because private loan companies and banks charge WAY MORE THAN only 1 percent, getting a person in debt for life, and completely unable to pay back the full amount. 

If the government loaned the money it would suceed, as it would be earning 1 percent until that person pays back their college loan debt.  In other words, they'd MAKE money while they HELPED someone, without going into debt!

See how the government HELPED that person, but at the same time it robbed no one.  It is making money rather than stealing money through taxes which it then gives away in things like pell grants, etc.

In the case of foreign countries, American should NEVER GIVE THEM ANY MONEY, period.  For this takes out money from our own cash flow in our own nation.  But if it does decide to pass money to other countries, it should be in the form of a LOAN, and at HIGH INTEREST RATES. 

For example, a country wants to better itself and it needs capital to do so.  So they come to America and ask for a loan of 100 million dollars.  The government could say, "Okay, we'll happily give you a loan for that amount, but you must pay it back in so many years, at an interest rate of 10 percent!"

If the country agrees and pays it, then wouldn't America be a much better, richer, profitable nation?

All these principles are so basic, so easy to grasp.  Yet our government continues to ignore them and plunge further into debt.  WHY?

Well, there is a reason for the spendthriftery of our national government.  They are getting in debt on purpose, and I hope you know the reason.  If not, you should really study history.  It all goes back to the international bankers, the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Illuminati, a global one world conspiracy, and more, in which the goal is a one world government and not a world with many different nations.  But that's another blog for another time.

The only way to govern America properly is to run it like a business with the goal of MAKING money, rather than SPENDING itself into debt.  This can still happen and should happen, but it will only happen if American citizens work together to vote out the current administration (I'm talking about Dems and Reps alike.  They are both corrupt and are in favor of spending money.)

Very few people know the truth about America, nor do they study how it was initially set up.  In the beginning, there were absolutely no taxes set up on the American people.  They were sick of taxation by Great Britian, so they made it a point to do away with taxes all together.  So how did the Federal government get money?  The answer was through DUTIES on foreign nations through trade.  If a country traded with America, they had to pay duty on all they sought to sell in America, and that money went into the coffer of the treasury of the government.  It was making money not off the citizenry, rather off of  other countries.  This left the typical American citizen to work hard and profit himself, as almost the entire world had to come to America to buy his goods.  America SOLD to other nations and made a profit, while it made them pay duty to sell their goods to us.  That means the government made money both ways!

If only we could get back to a system like this in which the government was not in debt, did not GIVE away countless TRILLIONS of dollars, and didn't expect their poplulace to pay for all their wreckless SPENDING through wanting to tax them even more.  For such a nation is not governed properly. 

Let me close with this illustration.  Let's say a guy comes into your home and says that he's going to take over your finances, and all you have to do is trust him and he'll make you money. Would you trust him?  I don't know.  I think I might be mistrustful from the git-go.  But let's say he does so and he takes your money and invests it and over time he makes you a millionare.  Wouldn't you be ecstatic?  Wouldn't you appreciate what he did for you?  Of course you would.

Now let's look at it on the other side of the coin.  What if a guy came into your house and said, "I'm taking over your finances whether you like it or not, and there's nothing you can do about it!"  And then he shows you a legal document granting him that right.  Then he takes your money and gets you so far into debt you'll never get out of it, ever!  How would you feel?  Obviously, you'd be angry and ungrateful, wishing he'd just leave you and your money alone!

So which system of government do we have based on the illustration above?  If you guessed the second one, you are right!

But it doesn't have to be that way.  We can still turn the country around and get it back to what it used to be.  We can still elect officials who can fix this mess and get us back on tract to a profitable pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.  But that time to do so is getting very short, as we have people in positions of power today who believe profit is evil.  They want to "distribute the wealth" and spread it around.  But why don't they just get back to trying to make America great again, and making it a profitable nation like it once was in which the American Dream was:  "If you work hard, you'll suceed!"
