    >Let's make “Something Big Is Happening” be the discovery that freedom works and is popular and the big economic and political event we're witnessing is a blessing in disguise.

    Freedom DIDN'T work. From 1492 thru Lincoln's War our European residents improved their economic lot by stealing assets from our Indian People residents. Slavery was tried in the north but the owners found that it was more economical to hire poor whites when they had contracts and lay them off during business down times. Slaves had to be fed and housed during New England winters even if the factory didn't have any contracts. In the South, the slaves could grow their own food and didn't exactly freeze to death in the winter.

    The white people who couldn't coexist with their neighbors (outlaws) could always go west and steal land after murdering the Indian People.

    Shortly after Lincoln's War, all the good land in the west was completely stolen and fenced. The outlaws ran out of Indian People to rape and there was no place left to hide. What was a poor outlaw to do? They discovered that best place to hide was the big cities back home - New York and Chicago. Thanks to good Christians like the Rockefellers, Prohibition guaranteed city control to the bad guys.

    From the Lincoln War to WW2 the American working class only did better because the the working poor were pushed up the economic scale because they were able to exploit refugees from Europe. During the "Ellis Island" era, half the immigrants "went into service," became household servants to the new middle class of white people.

    WW2 produced freak economic conditions. The US became the only civilized nation with an intact population and industrial base. Thanks to the GI Bill and the Marshall Plan, we DIDN'T have the traditional post-war stagflation when the troops came home.

    Never in the history of the world did over half a country's working class consider themselves to be middle class. We are reverting to the norm and I suspect the next generation will be 75% working poor.

    Freedom? You gots to be kidding. Freedom to vote for your tax collector?

    Mark It Down....

    Folks...that Ron Paul speech was "dead on!".....and you can mark it down,there ARE going to be some BIG THINGS take place in this country very soon and it probably is NOT going to be pretty. Time to square things up with God both on a national AND personal level is quickly slipping away.

    No room for smilies here....except with the possibility that our Lord may soon split the eastern sky with the sound of a Trumpet !! "Even so,come Lord Jesus !"

    It's time we figure out who we're going to side with, the USA or the international community.
