Also, are you saying America is worse now than when we were in the great depression? Or are you not saying that? I can't tell if you agree or not?
Are you saying that our economic condition means we're in worse shape now?
Yes it is worse, and we are in worse shape.
You do not own anything. You rent. People say "oh I own my house, oh I own my car". Let that payment get behind and then tell me what you own.
And even if you don't owe the bank, you've still got property taxes to pay, or they will come and take it on their own.
A decent amount of your labor is taxed. Do you know where that tax money actually goes? 100% of it goes to paying the interest on the debt, and
NOT towards the services you think it does. That is documented. That wasn't always the case.
Notice how it use to be that a man could work at the local factory, and make enough money to support his entire family comfortably - and larger
families at that, while being able to buy them health care and so forth? And today, it takes 2 parents in most cases just to make ends meet.
And why? Because you've been put into economic slavery, and the more the money is inflated the more the people lose. And that is where Africa and
the rest of the world comes in. Because the inflation here would be much worse if not for our ability to export our debt to the rest of the world.
But in the end, those countries who get into debt under the pretenses end up poorer and worse off. If not for our ability to do that, we would
have been feeling the effects much sooner and much worse.
The main reason for the Iraq war? Just oil? Not exactly. The dollar is the standard for trading in oil, it is basically backed by oil. Saddam and
others were threatening to leave the dollar and go with a different currency. That would have put an end to the above a good deal, and they
wouldn't be able to export the debt so much.
You are owned and given the illusion of freedom because those who believe themselves to be free have no reason to try and escape it.
Go ahead and look at all the taxes you have to pay on top of your purchasing power being stolen by inflation and deflation. In this "free"
country. No, it's not free at all, but it use to be. The problem isn't so much "America", but rather it's owners.
It's the same thing Jesus dealt with, back then they were called the "moneychangers". Although a bit different game, same function. Debt at
interest is called "usury" in the bible, and is the way of thieves.
And where Christianity and other religions(for other parts of the world) comes in is they are taught acceptance rather than understanding in many
cases. The go with the guy who says they are a Christian, no matter what they might be doing. They look towards symbols, rather than actions and
You know the part in revelation where it talks about no man can buy or sell? Aside from the mark itself, what it is really talking about is economic
