The collapse in our future
The US Energy Information Administration, the Wall Street Journal, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, FHFA, Standard and Poor, Realty Trac, the Heritage Foundation, The Conference Board, FDIC, the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury have all individually compiled statistics that are not matching up with what the White House is saying is happening to our economy. Jesus said in Matthew 7:16, "Ye shall know them by their fruits." This means that when actions and words do not match, you have to discern reality by the outcome of what is done, not what is being said. And you must be willing to stand and be good stewards of your citizenship.
When you look at the drastic decline in the United States since 2009--a year into the current White House term--you can see the tremendous amount of effort that is either wrong minded or put into destroying an entire way of life in an effort to "remake America." Let's look at the average retail price of a gallon of gasoline. In January 2009, it was $1.83 and now it is $3.10, an amazing 69.6% increase. Now one might say that the White House has no control over the price of fuel, but its foreign policies that support radical change in oil producing nations has an impact. Domestic policies such as not allowing drilling in Alaska and not issuing permits to produce oil off the Gulf coast (under contempt of court, mind you) are telltale.
National debt has increased from $10.6 trillion to $14.1 trillion from January 2009, a 32% increase. This number is an indicator for what happens with the rest of the economy. This is the most debt America has ever accumulated, the most debt of all the presidencies from Washington through Bush combined. There is an intersection of demise that has been reached. That intersection is the inflation of essential commodities and this tremendous debt. It equals poverty and collapse. Think about it. The inflation of several items in the last year is extraordinary: Foodstuffs like soybeans (42%), corn (78%), Sugar (165%) are pricing food out of the range of the common man.
The food stamp recipients have increased 35% since 2009; the number of long term unemployed is up 146%, and America's poverty ranks have increased by 9.5%. What we are being told is a rosy road to recovery is in actuality a narrow path to destruction. And now, this White House is embracing homosexual marriage by not defending the Defense of Marriage Act. Left to our own devices, we are on a course to collapse. We need a revival of the hearts and minds of our countrymen. We need a revolution of God-given common sense as found in the Holy Scriptures. Some will call it judgment for our adultery and idolatry, but look what has been done by the godless men and women we have elected.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
