Statement made by President G.W. Bush on December 16, 2004 -- "The crisis is now. You may not feel it, your constituents may not be overwhelming you with letters demanding a fix now, but the crisis is now."
The Social Security system is in a "crisis" according to President George Bush as he made the above statement on December 16, 2004. Other government people in addition to the president seem to have come to the place where they agree that the S.S. system is badly in need of fixin' of some kind!
Tragically, it has not yet dawned on President Bush and many others in the federal government super structure that the system would not be in quite the deplorable financial stress that it is if the nation had not given sanction to the implementation of a certain policy over 3 decades ago.
It was during January 1973 that the U.S. Supreme Court informed us under the majority opinion as written by United Methodist layman, Harry Blackmun, that it is a "constitutional right" for women to destroy their unborn children. As an aside -- do you suppose that Harry, who has since crossed over into eternity, has a different opinion now about unborn children? Mainly due to the fact that God's view of the unborn is so radically different from that of the U.S. Supreme Court?
And so we have faithfully done away with millions of unborn children for over 31 years at this point in time (Dec 17, 2004).
Take a look at the present tally of victims -- those millions who have been brutally mutilated and murdered in the womb!
Watch the little counter for about 60 to 90 seconds and see
what happens -- each number represents an unborn victim!
Unborn Babies Brutally
Mutilated and Murdered
since Roe vs. Wade
The oldest of these victims would be over 31 years old. Among those from age 21 and up, if they had been permitted to live, the vast majority would be paying into the Social Security fund. This would involve somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 million or more persons who would be paying a lot of bucks into Social Security! And it would have to be admitted, that if they had been permitted to live, there would be some under the age of 21 who also would be kicking in some dollars for Social Security!
There will be those who will object and say that some of those aborted children would have become criminals and thus would have been a liability rather than an asset to society. Yes, it has to be conceded that this would be a very real possibility.
But on the other hand you will find a number of incarcerated persons who were born into affluent circumstances and others who have college and graduate school degrees who committed criminal acts, including murder!
So if you follow the very warped logic of the many who insist that destroying unborn children is a good and healthy practice for our nation in order prevent future social problems, then we really ought to destroy every unborn child lest we risk creating those additional social problems by allowing even a few to be born. You just cannot be sure whether that unborn child will end up being a criminal, no matter if it should be born into poverty or into an environment of wealth and privilege.
Of course the practice of aborting 100 per cent of our conceived children would eventually lead to the point of no more social problems, no more crime, no more burdensome welfare, and no more need for Social Security, would it not? It is likely that even the most hard-nosed advocate of destroying unborn children would not go quite that far -- maybe almost, but unwilling to give approval to a full 100 per cent!
There's another factor to keep in mind about the problem of a financially strapped Social Security system. It's not been highly publicized and who would ever confess to being involved in such shenanigans anyway? Quite a while back information was made known about the Social Security Trust Fund being "raided!"
And just who pulled of the "raid?" One label answers the question -- a group of persons known as "politicians" in Washington DC!
Should that be considered all that unusual? After all, these are the people who have put their own self interests far ahead of the best interests of the citizens they claim to represent in their plush offices in the nation's capital.
You think not? Take a look at the record of their pay raises and how those raises were put into effect, the generous (and sickening) "perk" benefits, health insurance plans, and retirement benefits which these people have arranged for themselves -- do you have anything that even remotely comes close to what these parasites get now and will get when they retire? Little wonder they don't hesitate to spend millions of dollars to keep their "jobs" (term used loosely)!
But hang on for a bit -- in spite of the present situation, there is some very good news -- one of these days Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, is going to come back to this chaotic planet and take complete control of things.
One of the great benefits which we, who look forward to Jesus' return, will experience is the termination of "politics" which we presently have had to endure with much frustration. So look up -- there is a rock solid hope for the future available, if you are willing to meet the conditions to possess that hope.
In the meantime one way to "fix" Social Security is to raise taxes -- isn't that what politicians at the local, state, and federal levels are most skilled at doing?
Oh, as Detective Columbo would say, there's just one more thing -- in fact, a very important thing -- admittedly it has nothing really to do with the Social Security "crisis," but involves a coming future crisis of another kind which will make the Social Security situation seem like very mild kindergarten stuff by comparison. What will our elected officials and our church leaders say and do when God makes His response to the United States customized version of "holocaust" -- the senseless destruction of millions of unborn children for whom He had special plans, since He knew and identified each one of them before this universe was created?
Now a few things upon which to ponder for a bit:For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
-- Titus 2:11-14
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.
-- 2 Thessalonians 1:3-10
"I spoke to you in your prosperity, but you said, 'I will not hear.' This has been your manner from your youth, that you did not obey My voice. The wind shall eat up all your rulers, and your lovers shall go into captivity; surely then you will be ashamed and humiliated for all your wickedness."
Jeremiah 22:21,22 NKJV
"You have had a harlot's forehead; you refuse to be ashamed..." "Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed; nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time I punish them, they shall be cast down," says the LORD.
Jeremiah 3:3b; 6:15 NKJV
