“Ron Paul is wrong!!”

Said a fellow co-worker as we debated the bailout.  His feeling is, if the government does nothing to prevent Wall Street from crumbling, we are all screwed.

Right.  And if Ron Paul is wrong, why has he been right for so many years?  Why did he predict the fallout of a weak market system because of government OVER regulation and a cheap dollar??

Sure, my co-worker wants change.  He has hope.  He is hopeful that Obama will be able to straighten out this mess.  Nope.  You can count on more regulation with him or McCain.

My co-worker is a smart guy.  He understands systems and technology better than most.  He has no understanding on economics.

Don’t worry, the bailout will pass.  And then what?

    Alot of people actually believe what they hear on the MSM. Paul is not accepted because he is a prophet of sorts, and no one wants to deal with the reality. Therefore its easier to call RP and others crazy or naysayers. This bailout will set in motion forces that will lead to horrific times for this country. I think there will be a tax rebellion eventually once the people realize they have been plundered and I’m glad I’m in a rural area where many people are still relatively self-sufficient, and most of them are decent as well. In the small towns and rural places people are much more willing to come together and help each other out. My mother still lives in the Boston area which really concerns me. Time to pray, come together as communities and churches and do what we can.

    I wonder how much to blame Christians are for this? I hate to say it, but American Christians have become soft. I’m one of them.

    Times are a changin. We might as well get used to it.

    And, I kind of wish I lived in a more rural area, but I think, as we saw in the Depression, the rural people will get hit very severely.

    The strength of the rural areas is that they come together in times of desperation. Yes, in the 30’s we had the dustbowl and the hottest decade of the 20th century. But here in Wisconsin the people came together and shared food and helped each other survive. My father grew up in Vermont in the 30’s and they were desperately poor but they survived through hunting and growing their own food. In the suburbs its not as easy to do that. I would not want to live in a suburb or city in these times– there will be an increase in crime and civil unrest as there was in the 30’s; there’s no way to avoid it. And most people have weapons out here as well.

    Now you have me concerned. I am in the burbs, myself. I can only trust God. He should give us plenty of opportunity with a fresh harvest.

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to cause you to fear. Christ is our security. I think your’e right that Christianity and Christians like me have been in a slumber in our complacent, spoiled, and decadent culture. This will separate the wheat from the chaff. This is a great time to get more into prayer and Scripture meditation.

    The good thing about the suburbs is that there are plenty of squirrels, rabbits and pigeons. They make good eating.

    Haha! Dan, I just got back from a men’s retreat, and man was it necessary. I kind of went against my own will, but really, God did some things for our group men at church. I may post an entry on this later…right now I’m tired, as I never get enough sleep at these getaways.
