The main street media does not even need to know, but they will sooner or later.
God made us the richest nation in the history of the world by providing us with the resources and the knowledge to use them. The financial disgrace of our nation occurred because of a lack of moral dependence on Him for guidance in the decisions made by individuals and a lack of checks and balances over businesses and government officials. Digital money and fictitious legal entities allowed for uncontrolled speculation without accountability.
We are near the end of the experiment of the Republic form of limited government envisioned by the founders of the United States of America.
Our Government is now the largest employer in the world. It tells more people what to do and when to do it than any dictator in history. Government spending in the private sector to create jobs is never effective, digging holes and refilling them with dirt only results in high paid ditch diggers. It adds nothing to the economy; this "redistribution of wealth" in the public good is nothing other than political corruption, the purchasing of votes for political gain and power. What next? Internal social unrest or international pressure, they have already started this phase in the last few days?
Imagine what happens when the US dollar is no longer the world's business currency! What happens when countries refuse to buy our bonds?
We have stood idly by for 40 years allowing the problem to grow worse. As a nation we should feel the urgency of the financial problem, it could wipe out life as we know it in the USA in a matter of days.
What is lacking is the competence of those politically responsible to make the hard decision and take action.
Almighty God, help us not to look at the immensity of the task before us, but help us to look at the immensity of our all-powerful God. With humankind many things are impossible but with You, our Father, nothing is impossible. We want to trust You for supernatural workings in our lives and in the duties before us. As we go about our daily activities help us to see the answer to the question “who is your neighbor?” Help us to understand why it is important to come together as a nation not of individual free men without a purpose beyond our own desires but as people focused on the need to create a unified nation of individuals with strong Christian morals based on the 10 Commandments.
Lord we live in an open society, which can't be ruled but can be broken. The details of our decisions, our determination and how we function is available for the world to see. Our enemies seek to drive a wedge in, get their fingers on it -- and control us for their benefit. They won't need a whip – the yoke of oil and our own need for pleasure will do their work for them. They use the strength of our system of government against us. Our whole country is for sale and, thanks to our addictions to trinkets and oil; we gladly hand over the dollars to buy it from beneath us.
Lord, forgive us; provide us with the aspiration, ingenuity and the integrity to focus our efforts in ways that bring the greatest joy to you.
