Despite the propaganda coming out of Washington, DC., millions of Americans are in deep financial trouble. Last week the media cranked up the mantra that Wall Street may be getting more optimistic. Really?
Debt is not prosperity. When you have a full 1/3rd of credit card holders defaulting, what you have are millions of people who have no disposable cash to even make minimal payments. What they have is going to buy food and absolute necessities. I have little respect for Ronald Reagan, but he was right about ‘trickle down’ and the effect on the economy. What you see above is killing this economy and that doesn’t include the massive costs the states are and will continue to incur as crime increases, the cost of funding the mobs and our elderly Americans (in the tens of millions) who have no health care, no retirement care set aside and basically depend on the state for their food, housing and medication.
I can’t tell you what to do, but I’ve known all of this was coming since 1991 when I ‘woke up.’ I urge everyone: if you don’t have a plan for survival for you and your family – and don’t forget elderly parents – I hope you will make this a priority THIS WEEK. Regular readers of my columns know I have been harping on this for years. The time is here and now. Remember Katrina? The government didn’t fail. The people weren’t ready for disaster and the suffering was horrific.
While most people don’t like to think about it, we’re all one heart beat away from our trip to eternity. I’m not trying to encourage panic, but rather to hopefully get out the message that the time to make a plan and put it into action is now. I know, summer is coming and everyone is tired, frustrated, stressed and would like to take some “down time.” But, remember: you’re one heart beat away and no one knows when our Heavenly Father will call us from this earthly world. Are you ready for that last heart beat, spiritually, first and foremost, and those you leave behind?
