WASHINGTON -- For the past seven years, according to Rep. Jim Moran, "We have been guided by a Republican administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it." Actually, that "simplistic notion" has been the linchpin of the American system of free enterprise for the past two centuries. It has served to make the United States the most bountiful, wealthy and charitable nation on earth. Yet Moran says that system "doesn't work in the long run."
My fellow Americans, welcome to the long run.
The coincidence of an economic downturn and our most recent political realignment have produced calls for urgent, dramatic, decisive action. Liberal politicians, such as Moran, are suggesting that we all would be better off if we'd adopt a more punitive tax code and use the Internal Revenue Service to redistribute the wealth. Republicans and Democrats already have allied to use our tax dollars to bail out an insurance giant, mortgage companies and financial institutions that made bad loans and extended credit to borrowers who couldn't pay. Coming soon: tax dollars to save U.S. automakers. Attached to all these U.S. Treasury checks: countless pages of new fine-print regulations designed to prevent future financial stupidity -- or to ameliorate its consequences. But as they say in the Marines, "You ain't seen nothin' yet."
This week, here in Washington, President Bush is hosting world leaders for a global game of "Monopoly" with yet-to-be-determined rules, regulations and restrictions. Billed as the "Summit on Financial Markets and the World Economy," the weekend seance is being described by some participants as "Bretton Woods II." For the benefit of those who have forgotten their high-school history lessons, the first Bretton Woods conference -- held in July 1944 in the New Hampshire town with the same name -- officially was called the "United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference." At the time, the United States was the world's only economic powerhouse, and the goal was to construct a functioning, sustainable international economic system in the aftermath of World War II. It almost worked. Almost.
After nearly two years of negotiations and three weeks of formal meetings in the Mount Washington Hotel, the 735 delegates from 44 nations agreed to create the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the International Monetary Fund, and rules and regulations for international monetary exchanges, with gold (at $35 per ounce) as the currency standard. Since then, the IBRD has morphed into the World Bank, gold is no longer the "global standard," and thanks to costly energy imports and trade imbalances, the U.S. has become a debtor nation. Now, with the rest of the world following the U.S. into recession, leaders of the most powerful economies have descended on Washington to "fix the problem." It's not a happy crowd.
They call themselves the "G-20": Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union. The IMF, the World Bank, the United Nations and the Financial Stability Forum are also "represented." Clinton-era Secretary of State Madeleine Albright -- perhaps best remembered for dancing the "Macarena" with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il -- will be there for the Obama-Biden transition team. Nobel laureate Al Gore wrote in a New York Times opinion piece, "The bold steps that are needed to solve the climate crisis are exactly the same steps that ought to be taken in order to solve the economic crisis."
Unfortunately, the "bold steps" being contemplated by some of the G-20 participants may prove to be as stifling to the U.S. economy as the solution for Gore's "greenhouse gases." Among the G-20's "official representatives" are those -- such as Brazil's socialist president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva -- who blame the United States for the current economic downturn.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who claims credit for having come up with the idea for this confab, has said that there is an urgent need to "regulate capitalism" and that the G-20 gathering is a "great opportunity" to "build the capitalism of the future." Among other things, he wants to eliminate "offshore tax havens" and is pressing for the means to enforce new international "codes" against "excessive risk taking."
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and others in the European Union are advocating the creation of a global regulatory agency for financial oversight and "international transparency" for banking activities. He supports giving the IMF unprecedented authority for surveillance over transactions by borrowers and lenders.
Proposals such as these will be very costly, and it won't be just the expense of yet another bloated international bureaucracy. In the rush to establish "adequate regulation and oversight" over financial transactions, too many G-20 leaders are willing to sacrifice national sovereignty and personal privacy. "In the long run," to use Moran's words, that's too high a price for Americans to pay.
Oly for President!
Oliver North for VP under Palin.
never never never never happen........
Who was the recipient of that bail-out?
“He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666” (Rev. 13:16-18).
“A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: ‘If ANYONE worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name. This calls for patient endurance on the part of THE SAINTS who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus” (Rev. 14:9-12).
You must endure to the end to be saved (Matt. 10:22; Heb. 3:14; Rev. 2:10,11). The people who make the eternal mistake of receiving the mark and worshiping the beast and/or his image will be deceived by accompanying miraculous signs and wonders:
“But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur” (Rev. 19:20).
“And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed” (Rev 13:13-15).
“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness” (2 Thess. 2:9-12).
Those who refuse to receive the mark of the beast and worship his image are referred to in the following passage. These are the same ones who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus:
“I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years” (Rev. 20:4-6).
Please notice, the “first resurrection” will not occur until the mark of the beast is made available! The first resurrection is for those who have done good and will rise to live, as opposed to those who have done evil and will rise to be condemned (Jn. 5:29).
Regarding “that day” or “our being gathered to him” (2 Thess. 2:1), the Bible says:
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction” (2 Thess. 2:3).
Those who remain faithful to the Lord Jesus will refuse this mark, but will be beheaded as a result. This same fate for the God fearing who endure to the end is also mentioned in the following passage with another possibility for “the saints”:
“He was given power to make war against THE SAINTS and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast — all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world. He who has an ear, let him hear. If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of THE SAINTS” (Rev. 13:7-10).
Dear reader, if you die in the Lord as a consequence of refusing the mark of the beast, please realize that you will immediately be in the presence of the Lord in “Paradise” (Lk. 23:43).
Regarding physical death for a Christian, Paul wrote:
“We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord” (2 Cor. 5:8).
“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far” (Phil. 1:21,23).
REGARDLESS WHAT HAPPENS, DO NOT TAKE THE MARK! There will be many who will accept it at this time. Great pressure will be on you also to conform to their example. Miracles from satanic power will deceive many into taking the mark. YOU MUST REMAIN TRUE TO GOD, EVEN IF YOU GET BEHEADED OR GO INTO CAPTIVITY AS A CONSEQUENCE. YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY HANGS IN THE BALANCE with this single act, if we are the last generation.
Pass this vital information on to other people with whom you are acquainted. If we are the last generation, this could be the most important message they will ever learn. It may make the difference in where they will spend all of eternity.
“They overcame him [the devil] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death” (Rev. 12:11). “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt. 10:28).
“It is the collective effect of purposeful and amoral manipulation that seeks to centralize economic, political, technological and societal forces in order to accrue maximum profit and political power to global banks, global corporations and the elitists who run them.”

Al-qaida's gonna have more banking privacy than we will.
Very sad and possibly true.
The free economy may have its ups and downs, but in the log run, it will always win out over the planned economy. That is because the free economy reflects us, and like a living entity, it can respond more rapidly to our wants and needs. The planned economy reflect the desires of its planners, whose wants, needs, and desires may not match those who the planners are planning for...
Well said and I’d bet Thomas Sowell would agree.
Never mind extra guns, I’m stocking up on food and water. :(
“Al-qaida’s gonna have more banking privacy than we will.”
They already do. Any member of a credit bureau can run a check on any of us. Try running a credit check or a background on AQ.
Unforunately, freedom-lovers are the losers.
Live frugally and wait these parasites out. Remove your implicit sanction.
Think of it this way, even if this tide is turned back, you'll be ready for anything. Plan for the worst and live the best that you can in the meantime. Take you destiny into your own hands and it wont matter what these thieves and liars do.
My bet is that he’d lie but that’s just me.
