Steve, a fire sale is precisely what is needed. The larger the government entity, the more pruning needs to done. Look at the city councils in California making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in salary. New York City has been on the verge of bankruptcy more than once, and 11 of 50 states are effectively bankrupt. Exponentially worse is the Federal Government, which employees the largest unionized work force in the world, with Obama expanding the number of those employees at a record pace.

The Constitutional role of the US federal government is to provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare. Welfare is a word derived from the old English, "weal", meaning "wealth", and promote doesn't mean redistribute. Just as I am a first century Christian, and refuse to accept tenets based on Roman compromise with paganism in order to establish a state religion, an analogy can be made that our federal government has become as corrupt and vile as the leadership of the synagogue had become in Jesus's day.

Jesus Christ exposed the kingdom of the devil, yet the devil did not go away to quietly await his fate and has conspired to wreak as much havoc and mayhem upon this earth in the short time he has left. Romans 10:10 tells us "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy". While the appointed time of the Lord is known only to God, the devil is gearing up for Armageddon. It's not too late to save ourselves, individually and as a nation, "because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (John 10:9) and "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" (Psalm 33:12). If all else fails, there's always Hope, even in death, Hope for the Return of the Lord God Almighty, which may be all we have left after the devil and his minions are done sucking the last vestiges of wealth out of this nation and the world. Who will oppose the devil? Who can withstand him? Now we see why it will take the return of the Lord. It's shaping up as a replay of War of the Worlds, except the aliens are Wall Street, the Fed, and their willing accomplices in the Congress and Administration.

Who, indeed! Surely not all at the helm of power in this country are corrupt. Surely there is a remnant who believe the truth of God's word. Are we to descend into a pit of chaos for lack of leadership in our government. Now is the time to stand up and be counted. Tell your elected representatives to stand up to the leadership in the House and stop the lame duck session in Congress. Pelosi and Company got us into this mess with sub-prime lending, and it cascaded from there due to poor regulatory oversight and greed. Throw out the leadership in the House of Representatives. Stop the insanity of government giveaways, cut taxes to put money back in the private sector and cut spending to stop competing with the private sector for goods and services. The alternative is capitulation and defeat, a totalitarian government and new world order, which can be only exponentially worse.
