In Times of Crisis, Trust Capitalism: Click Here

By Joseph Calhoun

"The US government is executing a coup d’etat of capitalism and I fear that we will pay the price for many years to come. Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke and a host of others tell us the credit market is not working and the only way to get it working again is for the government to intervene. They claim this intervention is urgently needed and if we don’t act, the consequences are dire. Dire, as in New Depression dire.

"Have these supposed experts on capitalism forgotten how it really works?"


Click and read this article. We are not suffering an economic crisis because of captalism, but because of a failure of repeated government intervention in captalism. There are forces that are bent on destroying the American system and they are not in the capitals of Arab countries. This economic terrorism comes from without our own country, and both parties are responsible.

Everybody is not the same, and everybody does not deserve to have a house, a yard, and a mortgage. Those who build upon the sand will have their house come crashing down. We are sympathetic and will provide well-fare, but when the savings and investments of those who build upon the rock are used for politics and welfare programs, then everything comes crashing down.

But the truth remains: build upon the rock [hearing the sayings of Christ and doing them], and your house will not come down.
