OUR IMMORAL MONEY SYSTEM – AND WHERE IT’S LEADING US

America’s money system is on the verge of collapse, and, as much as I hate to say it, it deserves to fail. Even though I, too, will be hurt by a collapse of the dollar, which seems all but inevitable sometime in the next few years, the fiat money system we use in our country is neither sustainable nor moral.
I say this not based on my ideas of what is just, but on God’s ideas. Most people tend to overlook what the Bible says about money. It has much to say. In fact, Jesus had more to say about money and possessions than any other topic including faith, hope, heaven and hell combined. There are more than 2,350 verses in the Bible referencing money and possessions.
The Bible condemns the kind of money system we use in the US, one in which the value of money is constantly changing and subject to manipulation — and which today, of course, is on the verge of collapse.
Consider the following biblical verses:
• “A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just
weight is his delight.” “(Proverbs 11:1)
• “Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD.” (Proverbs 20:10)
• “Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.” (Leviticus 19:35-36)
• “Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable? Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights? For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.” (Micah6:10-12)
When the Federal Reserve can produce trillions of dollars out of thin air and add it to the money system, that action changes “the weights and measures” we use to buy and sell. More money in the system by definition devalues the currency that was already in the system. Its called inflation – which Ronald Reagan called “as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber, and as deadly as a hit man.”
As a result of such rank dishonesty, we are close to the end of our rope. Our monstrous national debt, our insane deficit spending, the Obama administrations maniacal insistence on ever more borrowing, spending, indebtedness, taxes and regulations is strangling productive Americans to death. Simultaneously, the Federal Reserve, to keep the charade going a little while longer, inflates our currency so that all of our dollar-denominated holdings are worth less and less with each passing day.
With the US dollar about to lose its all-important status as the world’s reserve currency, we should have no reasonable expectation that our economy will do anything but tank ever further for the foreseeable future. That’s why sensible Americans need to take what steps they deem prudent so they can weather the coming storm. That’s what this issue of Whistleblower, JuneUS 2013 is all about.
Hopefully, we will elect a worthy president in 2012.
Hopefully, the suffering we’re enduring now and in the coming
months will wake up enough voters to enable us to change
Hopefully, we can recapture our founding fathers vision and stay true to it. And…
Hopefully, we’ll have the sense, as Steve Forbes urged recently, to get the US dollar back on the gold standard, as it was throughout the many decades when it was the strongest currency in the world.
We made a huge mistake in 1971 going off the gold standard. Let’s learn from our mistakes before we lose our economy completely, and with it, our country.
Until next time,
