There is only one way out of the mess we are in: to face the truth of how we got into it and apply the proper medicine. How did the United States, the leader of the free world, get on to the road to a totalitarian system financed by American taxpayers?
Most Americans do not have a clue what a totalitarian system is. Let me tell you from experience: It is a godless society where there is no justice. The totalitarian leaders are always right, while the opposition is always wrong. Rules are based on lies forced upon people by godless and corrupt functionaries. Totalitarian systems grow out of immorality. Immoral people can be manipulated; moral people cannot. Protest, and you will be sanctioned. We will experience the end of freedom and the rule of the lie. Founding Fathers will be presented as greedy capitalists. There will be multi-religious “faiths,” which includes watered-down Christianity. We had that in Germany. The “German Christians” promoted National Socialism in religious language.
You will be told by our unconfirmed president, Barack Obama, and the godless bunch of politicians what to believe. In the global ideological battle for the role of God in human society, they stand contrary to our founders. They are neither Christians nor patriots but enemies of God and the Constitution. They aim to replace God’s commandments by making people believe that they know how to solve every crisis. We are not in a battle between socialism and capitalism. That is only the outside. The real battle is between God and almighty man, between truth and lies.
A free and strong America stands in the way of the global rule of the lie. The trillion-dollar projects are not meant to resurrect the American economy, I believe, but to destroy it. Marc Faber, better known as Dr. Doom, compares U.S. financial policy with Zimbabwe’s. There you paid 100 billion Zimbabwe dollars for three eggs in March of 2009. In the ’20s, my mother went to my father’s office every day with a big suitcase to pick up the salary, which filled the suitcase. Even today I do not understand how people with a fixed income lived. After World War II, on weekends, hundreds of thousands of city people poured into the agricultural parts of Germany to exchange their valuables for food.
Nazi Germany failed because of godlessness. When I began to figure out how the Nazi atrocities could happen, I noticed that many people, including churchgoing Christians, lived as I had done: for myself, not bothering about what went on in government. I realized that as I am so is my nation. I was a liar who lied for small personal advantages, and if all German people were like me, it was no wonder Hitler could get away with his atrocities. He lied for big political stakes. With my lies I, who detested the Nazis, was closer to Hitler than to Jesus Christ. Going to church did not make me a Christian.
Godlessness is denial of God’s commandments. There is the personal denial, for instance somebody who lies or commits adultery, and then there is the national denial, the organized abandonment of God’s commandments in the form of laws or other legal means – like abortion or holocaust, making murder legal. What is evil becomes legitimate. These procedures begin with a lie to oneself. One convinces oneself that this lie is necessary for the good of the nation, but in reality it is for the advantage of the liar. After lying repeatedly the liar doesn’t realize what he does and he cannot distinguish anymore between right and wrong. And that is the moral position of most politicians today. If not addressed, trillions of dollars will not make a difference.
Human nature is the same around the world. Every person has in his heart the voice of evil and the voice of truth. Evil does not present itself as such but as beautiful and tempting. Without a moral guideline, men or women will follow the easy path of appeasing what is evil and will become part of it. Every society, including democracies, will end in a totalitarian system. No wonder those Democrats who want to sell us into totalitarian slavery are also the vanguard of immorality. They should be sent home.
In these days we celebrate in Christian America the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of God, our savior. Europeans who followed Jesus made God’s commandments the basis of our Constitution. It led to a rich society and the most powerful nation in the world. However, a considerable part of the citizenry has forgotten its roots. Our policies are the damnable manipulation of other people for their own advantage. May God have mercy on this nation. May America find a national rebirth in Jesus Christ. That is the only way out of this mess.
