My friend Clyde brought up a topic that is a bit staggering to comprehend. He claims that each and every American is $43, surgeon 750 in debt. He refers to an article by Dr. Hendrickson. Clyde states:
“Fourteen Trillion Dollars is the current admitted national debt. Since that won’t fit on most calculators just drop six 0’s and you now have Fourteen Million Dollars. Take our current population, site legal and otherwise, of about 320,000,000 and drop six 0’s. Now divide the debt of 14 Million by 320 and you have $ 43,750. This is the amount that our lying, corrupt, self-serving gutless federal politicians have over the last 80 years, but mostly in the last 4 years, have put every one of us in debt for.” Another staggering figure from Clyde. “At $1000 per second, it would take 443.8 years to pay the admitted current national debt!”
I would like to add that since only 20% of all Americans are actually earning a paycheck, that the real amount is 5 times larger. Example: School students, dependent children, welfare recipients, retiree’s don’t earn or pay in to the government. One must also consider all the jobs that produce little or nothing that would help to pay in to the government to reduce the debt. Most all government jobs are such jobs. They actually cost us money even though some of those jobs will help people to earn an income later in their lives. Teaching is one such job.
There is also the fact that our income is taxed in many ways. The bottom line is that we end up paying over half of our income to the governments, local, state and federal. Now the really sad part; the interest on our debt says Clyde: “Even if we could freeze the current debt, the interest the government would have to pay it’s debtors, would be about a $1000 per second! That would be $6 per day for every person (again multiply by 5) for the next 444 years!
“Is it clear now? NO COUNTRY IN HISTORY HAS EVER ACCUMULATED SUCH MASSIVE DEBT AND SURVIVED, AND WE CAN’T EITHER. So, if you care about this country, your grandchildren, and future generations to come TELL D.C. TO STOP WASTING OUR MONEY! AND ALL PEOPLE BETTER LEARN TO WORK BECAUSE THERE WILL NOT BE A FREE LUNCH.”
Clyde says: “No, I’m not a math major, I major in COMMON CENTS.”
“—For when thy judgments are in the earth, price
the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”
One could say when God’s judgments are not in the earth there is going to be confusion, prostate
unrest and evil coming forth on all sides and as He lifts His hand off the nation so goes understanding.
Isaiah 26:3 tells us
“Whose mind is stayed on God, therapist
Thou wilt keep him in prefect peace.”
“Trust ye in the Lord forever—“
I ask you is there any peace, is there any getting away from the constant hammering of Beck, Hannity or Rush, all of them putting forth the evilness of the day continually and rightly so because it is there. There is a constant squeal of unrighteousness coming out of every level of government. You open any category or subject for discussion and it seems to be out of sync with everything, the people, the times, and the Law of God.
There is revolt on every corner and if not on every corner, it is either in or on everyone’s mind. Why is this? The judgment from God is on, not in the country and therefore righteousness is not being taught or learned; what fools we must be God’s sight.
“Oh God open Ye the gates—“
that we as your people may come in.
The fear of the Lord is not in this nation and it will not give glory to God.
“Give glory to the Lord your God, before He cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains and while ye look for light, He turn it into the shadow of death and make it gross darkness.”
Now that is scary stuff because this nation has rejected God and His son Jesus Christ. We are groping in every area of life not knowing were to turn. You say no to this, I say yes, with God warning us and telling us what is to happen, read carefully.
Woe to the rebellious children, saidth the Lord, that take counsel, but not with me: and the cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin.
Are we not adding sin to sin daily. Take heed folks for we will see God’s wrath and when it comes, don’t act to surprised.
