Why America is Being
I have just returned from
visiting the USA after
being in Europe over the last month. What I
find in visiting the USA
both shocked and alarmed me. I found a nation continuing to sleep-walk
towards its own destruction.
The American people have increasingly
become “dumbed down” through their media – they are
becoming polarized with extremists on both the left and right proclaiming
messages of hate and intolerance. Yet the media fails to inform Americans the
peril their country is now in – there is a total lack of awareness of the
dangers that lie ahead. People fail to grasp on the realities of the
economic, political and environmental world which the USA must now
co-exist in. There appears to a total lack of leadership or understanding in
or the world’s problems.
One of the tragedies resulting from
the “brain-washing” of the American people is in deceiving them that they are
the greatest nation of earth that their way of life is the model all nations
should follow. The leadership claims that democracy is the form of
governments all nations should adopt. America is the “land of freedom”,
yet the majority of American’s are under bondage to an economic system that
has enslaved them.
Yet many America’s
continue to deceive themselves into believing that
God is blessing America.
While they continue to sing “God Bless America”
it is becoming increasingly clear that God is no longer blessing America.
is now being cursed because of its sins.
Why would God curse America when
it still proclaims to be a Christian nation? Clearly God has blessed America in
the past – why should these blessing now withdrawn and the nation be cursed.
The reason why America
is being cursed is because of the rejection of the legal code given to us by
God through the Bible on how we are to live our lives, and be governed. Let’s
look at some of the reasons how and why America is being cursed today,
which will shortly lead to its destruction.
1. War – the mess America has got
itself into in Iraq us a direct result of the nation relying on its own
military might and trying to resolve international problems though force,
rather than having the faith to trust God to defend them, as He promised if
we keep His commandments. It will eventually result in the defeat of the USA, followed
by its economic collapse.
2. Economics – why has what once was
the world’s richest nation now the world’s greatest debtor nation. America is
now totally dependent on being able to attract capital from its former
enemies to prevent its economy collapsing. When America’s former enemies are no
longer prepared to lend the money to sustain the American economy will be the
time its economy will collapse.
3. Environmental – clearly the USA is now
suffering the direct consequences of the break-down of the global
environment. No other nation has squandered its non-renewable resources as America has
done. The rejection of environmental laws God has given mankind has directly
resulted in the ecological disaster how planet now faces. Yet America’s
leaders continue to live in denial that these problems exist, because the
changes needed to be made would not be acceptable economically or
politically. Yet unless these changes are made, natural disasters such as the
recent hurricanes will continue to increase.
4. Law and Order – continued
break-down of moral standards and growth in the influence of drugs has
resulted in an exploding prison population and growth is most types of crime.
I was shocked to experience people being physically attacked and beaten while
in the center of San Francisco
in broad daylight when visiting this city.
5. Care for the needy – I was amazed
to see the numbers of homeless living on the streets in the USA. For a
nation that has so much wealth, it is a shock to see so many poor people
begging in the streets. This one does not see in Europe or New Zealand.
There is something wrong with a society that does not provide care for those
6. Divisions within American society –
the opposition to the Iraqi War is now gaining
moment, with public demonstrations against the occupation of Iraq throughout the USA. Unfortunately, the American
people were lied to by their leaders, supported by the populist media (such
as Fox News) and the Christian-right into supporting the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
They have now are coming to realize how they were deceived. To withdraw the
American forces from Iraq
now would be an even worse disaster for the country than the illegal invasion
was in the first place.
7. Cost of living – as inflation
increases, and real incomes declined, many people are now struggling to
exist. Increasing interest rates placing additional burdens of the American consumer
and industry. The standard of living will steadily decline as the national
and consumer debts grow – a greater percentage of income is being required to
service these debts, reducing disposable income. Taxation will continue to
increase as the governments struggle with increasing domestic and military
8. America’s ability to defend
itself – the War against Terrorism has placed a considerable burden on the
domestic economy, with little to show for it. For a visitor to the USA today one feels like one is entering the Soviet Union in the days of the Cold War. While
Homeland Security is costing the American taxpayer billions of dollars, the
military is being starved of resources for the equipment required to defend America.
9. The destruction of America’s
production base. America
became great through exporting its goods, technology and services to the
world. This ability of America
to produce and export competitively is being under-mined, as more resources
are being diverted into defense and the military. While Japan and Germany (both high-cost producing
countries) continue to competitively increase their exports, American
industry is no longer able compete internationally.
10. The health of Americans – anyone
visiting the USA
is amazed with the number of over-weight people. Clearly something is wrong
with the American diet. Maybe it is the hormones used in producing meat that
is partly responsible. Where you have a society driven by greed, producing
food for maximum profit, regardless of the consequences to the consumer, the
result are a people often eating themselves to death, always lusting for
more, and never satisfied.
The decline and coming collapse of the
American Empire will be sudden and dramatic. It will reduce the USA to a land
of poverty – its people will face horrendous tribulation. There will be total
economic collapse. Money will become worthless. There will be a complete
break-down in law and order – anarchy will reign. There will be wide-spread
famine and disaster. Millions will die. What was once the richest country in
the world will soon become the poorest nation in the world?
