Beware the beast!

I don't usually go in for discussions on politics, money or religion, but it seem this is one that needs to be adressed.
I was speaking with a friend of mine a week or so ago regarding our current president and talked myself into a startling conclusion. My friend (who happens to be a black preacher) said that he thinks that Obama must be stupid. My instant reply was "Take everything that you know, have heard and seen about Obama, you can't say that the man is stupid" I said this at the time, and believe wholeheartedly that this man is not stupid. We are!
This discussion was started over the economy and economic bailouts. I had made the statement that if the government were to give every taxpaying citizen $100,000 it would still be a lot less than they have spent on bailouts. When I made this statement I was generalizing but after little bit of research I have found that it would in fact work. As of 2007 the taxpayer base was about 138 million. Multiply that by $100,000 and you have 1.3 trillion bucks. Still less than what the Gov. has spent on bailouts. I would however like to reduce that number to include only taxpayers over the age of 21. I'm prett sure that it wouldn't be a good idea to unleash a 16 year old working at Publix on a hundred grand. Also I would like to exclude anyone with a net worth over I dunno say...2 million. Lets face it, they don't need it and will get it anyway. This is going to drop that 1.3 trillion down by a few Mil. Still sounding pretty good.
The best part of this, where the bailout really works is that the majority of people that get that amount of cash are going to spend it. Paying off and/or buying houses, cars etc. These payoffs and new purchases are going to go straight to the companies that are getting bailed out. The biggest difference between my idea and the Gov's is that my plan helps out all of the citizens.

Now that we have firmly established that a 33 year old non-collegiate laborer can come up with a better plan than the Government let's look at why they aren't doing something along the same lines.

1. By bailing out big companies directly, it puts the government in a position of more control. It leave big companies beholden to the government and leaves the citizens still begging for help.
2. At some point in time the gov. Will either force those big companies out of business or take control of them. Still leaving the citizens begging for more. In this case we have what is known as a communist state
3. At the point that the government now owns and/or controls all the big buisness and banks they can now dictate how those goods and services will be distributed to the masses. John Q. Public still broke and begging.
4. Of course I have oversimplified this a bit but at this point the Government and by now one can assume that we are not speaking of the US government but a global government can step in and say that you have to conform to certain standards in order to obtain goods and service. By now the general public is so broke and desperate that they will bow to nearly any demand in order to obtain relief.

Ever hear of the Mark of the Beast? New world order? These are the kinds of things that I'm talking about. When people mentioned this kind of stuff to me years ago I laughed and said "no way!" People will never allow that to happen. Now, I think I can draw a pretty straight line from where we are to that point. Not saying that this is going to happen in the next week, more like over then next 8 to 10 years but the handwriting is on the wall.

What can you do about it? Nothing! If you are a Christian, the same biblical truths that tell you that Christ will save your soul from eternal damnation also tell you that these things will come to pass. If you aren't a Christian then well......I guess you've got bigger problems to worry about.

Just a side note, I'm not a politician or statitician or anything great like that. I've just been observing and thinking and this is what I've come up with. Please feel free to comment and add your own insights.
