I’ve got no strings
To hold me down
To make me fret
Or make me frown
I had strings
But now I’m free
There are no strings on me– song I’ve Got No Strings by Dickie Jones, 1940
Everyone has an agenda. Some are obvious, are some subtle, and some are hidden and secretive. Except in the most rare of cases, the person pulling the strings wants what’s best for themselves above all else. Sometimes what’s good for them is also good for everyone else, and sometimes it’s unashamedly mercenary. Without question, the two thousand plus billionaires of the world wield great power over the average person. They are the modern kings of today’s world, and they are playing a Game of Kings to stake out their own little section of the world to rule. They are the tops of the pyramid, the kings of the hill. Next in line are the millionaires and multi-millionaires. They too have great power over the lives of the average person. Independent, hard working people come next. At the very bottom of the pyramid are the wretched dregs of society. People who have either giving up on trying to better themselves, and are dependent upon social welfare programs and the kindness of strangers to survive.
If you are fortunate enough to live in the United States of America, then you are blessed indeed. The USA is a land of limitless opportunities, and built upon the tenants of freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Since the nation was founded 243 years ago, it has been the target of powerful people who want to subvert and destroy our great nation. For parts of the nineteenth and all of the twentieth centuries, the Democratic National Committee has been trying to remake the USA and destroy the Christian country created by the Founding Fathers. Democrat is indeed the new communist as the liberal left slinks further and further towards radical socialist agendas and establishing a permanent power over the average citizen. In their new vision of America, we the people will be dependent on the government from cradle to grave. They will slander and attempt to destroy anyone who dares to oppose them.
Our nation and its government is BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE. There is nothing wrong with wealth. There is nothing wrong with success. We live in a capitalist society and our economy grows through consumerism. If people are buying, selling, and trading, there are jobs being created. What is wrong is when a government tries to enslave all its citizens and destroy the means of creating wealth while raising taxes and killing jobs. This is what Barack Hussein Obama II was in the process of doing, and what Hillary Rodham Clinton would have continued had she been elected. Fortunately, there was a very powerful patriot, billionaire Donald J. Trump who was willing to fight to save our nation from those who were willing to save it. Trump’s love for our nation exceeds that of any president in our lifetime, even greater than Ronald Reagan. Fortunately, WE THE PEOPLE banded together in such force to elect this great man to the highest office. Donald J. Trump has been insulted, slandered, belittled, and bashed by all those who oppose him. The liberals are losing, and they know it!
- Billionaires control our world.
- They control our banks.
- They control our economy and industry.
- They control our food.
- They control our media.
- They control our communications and social networks.
They control so many aspects of our lives, but they can only control us if we allow them. All of the media, communications, and social networks THEY created can also benefit US if we take the time to navigate the sea of lies and misinformation that powerful LEFTIST billionaires are imposing upon us. Every wealth group from the ultra-poor to the mega-rich can be divided into two main camps, the left (liberal) and the right (conservative). There are also two other smaller subgroups that are far dangerous to our nation. The centralist, who can flip-flop on issues at the drop of a hat, and the anarchist who wants no government of any kind and doesn’t care about politics at all. Both of these groups are products of the post-modern school of thought which claims there is no right or wrong.
In God We Trust!
There was a reason that Madalyn Murray O’Hair fought hard to ban studying the Bible in public schools in 1963. She was a militant feminist, communist, and atheist who founded the group American Atheists. She claimed that religion was “a crutch” and an “irrational reliance on superstitions and supernatural nonsense”. In reality this was all part of a greater plan. The USA was founded as a Christian nation, and by removing the study of the Bible from public schools, O’Hair was sowing the seeds for the destruction of the US. Without God, there is no USA.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance. – Psalm 33:12
There is a difference between religion and spirituality, just as there is a difference between morals and ethics. Unfortunately few take the time to learn the distinction. Spirituality is a belief in God, and the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things. Religion is a system of rules and doctrines. This is why Jesus said in James 1:27 “Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. ”
There is no such thing as a moral atheist because morals are based on Biblical absolutes whereas situational ethics are fluid and can change with the individual or situation. Good can be bad and bad can be good in the mind of post modernists. God is good ALWAYS and when you eliminate the study of the Bible, you erode the moral backbone of the nation. If something is legal, it is not unethical. If it were unethical, it would be illegal. Immoral is always immoral, whether it is legal or not. So the word of God is not a ‘controlling’ force, but a guiding factor which is for our benefit. Warning us about destructive behaviors is not HATE, it is truly being done for our benefit so that we may life a healthy, happy, and productive life. The only time I’ve ever seen happy atheists are when they were insulting Christians.
The bottom line is that there are many forces in this world that are trying to control us, even up to and including the point of a gun. The power we give these earthly forces over us is an illusion we allow them, one that we can shatter at any time. WE THE PEOPLE have the real power, and if God is with us, who can stand against us? As always, I wish you success and happiness!
