My husband wrote this. It pretty much just poured out of his soul.
The official U.S. unemployment rate is about one in every ten working people. The reality is probably closer to two in ten. It will get worse.
There are currently 6.3 million vacant homes in the United States that are either for sale or for rent. The total number of foreclosed homes is in the millions...and rising.
Since the year 2000, we have lost 10% of our middle class jobs.
Our population is nearly three times that of 1940, but we have the same number of manufacturing jobs as we did back then.
20% of Detroit is being cut off from essential city services due to inability of the City Government to pay. (In 1990 Detroit was the 8th largest US city. Today it is the 11th,)
Camden, New Jersey, listed as the second most dangerous city in the country, is laying off half of its cops.
A poll suggests that 40% of all U.S. doctors plan to bail out of the profession over the next three years.
Over 6 million Americans have been unemployed for half a year or longer.
Total U.S. debt is listed as 14.7 trillion dollars. That debt as a percentage of GDP is now greater than it was during the height of the Great Depression.
Actual U.S. debt including Social Security and Medicare and all the other off-budget mandates is now over 100 trillion dollars. To pay just that debt, each person living in the U.S. (including our illegals) would have to write a check for **a third of a million dollars.** But you'd better write it quick. Obama's proposed 2011 budget is for 3.69 trillion
Social Security, Medicare and interest on the official debt will gobble up every single tax dollar by 2020.
More control (and more money) will go this year to social redistribution, greater limits on personal freedom, on limits of personal income, on limits of self-expression, on gun control, on religious limitations.
But what do you say about the new broom in Washington? The Republican revolution? The Tea Party take-over? Sarah Palin? Scott Brown? Newt Gingrich?
Our politicians are liars, swindlers, egomaniacs, and power-mad want-to-be dictators. All of them. Sorry, but that's the truth. This is true even for those who claim to support our now-worthless Constitution. These false patriots make a grand noise about principles and morality, but when asked about specifics will hem and haw when it comes to being forced to return to the limitations placed on them by the Founders.
And it is those limitations that were our only chance of survival as a free and secure Nation. After all, there's no reason to bribe a politician if he is not legally able to help or hinder a corporation or special interest. And although corporations may often be immoral, **only their partnership with an abusive government gives them any real power.**
Our politicians not only allow for the existence of Agencies and Commissions that do their work for them and for the corporations who pay them, they also actively participate in advancing their illegal behavior (FCC, FED, TSA, etc.). In a time when we all know that there is no more money in the coffers, when our debt is already out of control, our government continues (with the help of imaginary money) to run lemming-like towards the great cliff of financial ruin by spending on anything and everything that furthers their goals of personal power.
And it is personal.
Forget the imaginary tools of socialism, Marxism, nationalism and all the other "isms". These are the same snake oil cures always sold by dictators and their sycophants. Does anyone actually believe that our "leaders" really intend to share in the "egalitarianism" they want to force us to endure? Of course not. By the use of, and amplification of, malice, envy, and covetness, they inflame those useful idiots they've indoctrinated in government schools to scream for the heads of the hard-working, the God-fearing, and the freedom-loving.
You may say, "But there are good people in the Government." If so, then they are blind. There is no other way to explain their continued support of such evil.
The time to recognize reality is now. Please put aside your binders. Remove the beam from your eye.
There is no way to stop the collapse of the system. The very act of trying will now only hurry the inevitable. The mountain is coming down. No hastily constructed structure can halt it. Anything placed in its way will simply be added to the debris. Survival, personal survival, will not occur by placing your shoulder against the slide. You can not outrun the avalanche. You cannot ride the talus and live.
So what do you do?
You get out of the way.
The Constitution is a contract between two completely different entities. It is a covenant between a government...and you. The government is not the United States of America. It is not you. Whatever it once was, it has now become an evil and bloated corporation who's only interest is its own survival at your expense.
Government has broken the covenant. It has willfully and maliciously failed in its contractual obligations.
And therefore you are no longer bound to honor your side of the commitment.
Get out of the way while you can. Help those closest to you to escape the coming destruction. Reconnect with those you love and open the door to the loving God who is knocking. You will need His help to survive the storm. Make your home ready. Help others to prepare for the long night to come. Forgive those who seek forgiveness. Ask for forgiveness from those you’ve wronged and from the God who gave you life. Light a lamp to help guide those in need of your help. Resist the coming evil if you can, but if nothing else, do nothing to assist it. Gather those closest to you closer. Find and cherish the many more who seek. Make a new contract with them.
Start it with these words and keep them Holy. They are, you know.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. May God protect and defend you and yours.
