The problems our nation face today, and those of Europe, can be traced back to the claim that God has been displaced with the operating assumption that given enough power and money, everything can be fixed. It might be time for our nation’s leaders to take a look at the demise of Rome. – Gary Demar, Godfather Politics
The Dollar Bill is an American history lesson unto itself. Your child and mine would fail it miserably! I think that borders on fascinating!
Did they know that the “all-seeing eye” symbol of divinity inside the un-capped pyramid came about as a result of Franklin’s belief that a group of men with the help of God could do anything? Or, The Latin above the pyramid, “Annuit Coeptis”, means, God has favored our undertaking? How would they know when no one has told them? But who in the world would intentionally keep such important information about our history from those who need it most?
In God We Trust was added to what was already implied by the Founders on the back of the one dollar bill. It was added in the 1950’s because of the “Red Scare”. In other words, the enemy within that worried enough of our elected officials then…simply waited until enough of them were gone! Today, few people know enough to care…and the ones that do have become disenfranchised by a systemic corruption that has rendered integrity impotent! Lead, follow or get out-of-the-way has been completely replaced by PAY TO PLAY!
Divine light has been replaced by the earthly glow of a new secularist “reason”:
“That light came in as a flood and all was clear. Not only had I got rid of theology and the supernatural, but I found the truth of evolution.”- Charles Darwin
It doesn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to follow the bread crumbs from Darwin to Rockefeller and Carnegie to gaze upon the night skies over a burning Athens to see where elite reasoning has led the rest of us!
Misplaced Trust! We had it right in the beginning. The fires that are consuming the very cradle of Western Civilization have grown from the rejection of natural order in favor of the cult of reason…fanned by the winds of neglect (otherwise known as kicking the can!). The Ruling Class has made promises it could not keep for the sake of power, and simply waited too long to fix the problem. Now they are left to fight their fires of failure with fire hoses of failure…and we have cursed ourselves to follow in their footsteps!
