Why would any person invest their life’s savings, borrow extra money, work 80+ hours a week, spend every night crying and praying over the daily crisis, baby-sit adult employees, fight government agencies, pay massive amounts of taxes, constantly make changes to comply with government edicts, and wrestle with battles royal every day to stay in business? Some refer to this type of person as an “entrepreneur.” Those having tried to run their own business call business owners, “Super-heroes!” An entrepreneur is anyone highly motivated and driven to achieve and take others along the hike to the top of the mountain of business success!
Government, however, always seeks to take everyone to the “bottom” of the mountain so everyone is financially equal – while attacking entrepreneurs, greatness, or business success. Why?
Government is an inherent malfunctioning bureaucratic management system designed for “spending addicts” by spending addicts. Void of “personal” accountability for their habit, bureaucrats seek to design and manipulate the system to maximize spending under the excuse of “doing what’s best.”
Normally, high-ranking government officials soon falsely believe they are more powerful and important than God. With their power, they can wave their hands and fix and/or repair just about anything – so long as they keep getting re-elected. However, what they fail to mention is that whatever they do or don’t do, it’s going to cost more and hurt the masses more than if the private sector does it.
As soon as the bureaucrats sink into their spell of being popular and able to gain re-election, it doesn’t take that much longer for the “God Syndrome” to come upon them. This syndrome when diagnosed in public officials takes control of their brain and convinces them they are more powerful than God and the masses need to believe in them and forgo any relationship with God. Then they go about their duties with the wish to make God appear impotent while they become the fertile and more powerful solution to every problem known to man.
How Does God and Business Work in Tandem?
Pure capitalism is the only economic system ever designed that allows “everyone” within a society to benefit and achieve – regardless of pedigree, community stature, color of skin, background, or wealth. No, America wasn’t the creator of the Capitalistic system. Most are shocked to learn that it was in fact the only business system offered by God from day one.
This is a wonderful reflection of God’s infinite wisdom. We must then understand He is the God of LOVE. Love is all about doing what is best – regardless. Therefore, everything God does is for “all” – not just a special few. It’s like understanding eternal “salvation.” God sent His only begotten Son, even Jesus Christ, not to ‘condemn’ the world, but that the ‘world’ (not just a special few) would be saved through Him. Therefore, if it’s good enough for God, then it’s good enough for all.
In addition, we may also be shocked to learn that God mandated the first 10% Flat Rate tax system (tithing) on citizens while exempting business. In turn, God mandates Governments manage their affairs with no more than 10% tax levies on the masses – regardless of earnings, so that all have an investment into the nation and local governments.
Why did God intentionally exclude business taxes? Businesses produce products and services consumed by people or other businesses. Businesses produce profits for their owners, employees, investors, stockholders, and those associated with the business. When people receive money from a business, taxes are due. God’s plan should be sufficient for anyone.
Therefore, in God’s infinite wisdom, we must understand no business would ever be able to pay taxes! The funds available within a business are for payment of business operations, salaries, supplies, overhead, utilities, and its investors. For this, the business produces a product and/or service that is sold for $X.
If businesses pay taxes, then the price of their product and/or service is price adjusted to accommodate such an increase in their system. This means all taxes imposed upon business pass to the consumer. God mandates a tax that does not exceed 10% on the consumers. If government invents business taxes, consumers must now add that tax to their personal tax burdens. The really bad news is that inflated currencies created by business taxes are bad for consumers, business, government, charities, the poor, the rich, and all others – regardless of the product or service!
As an example, if government imposes a new tax on eggs of $2.50 a dozen, who wins? We must learn the first law of taxation, “Businesses do not pay taxes – only consumers pay taxes.” Consequently, the price of eggs would automatically jump by $2.50 per dozen.
A $2.50 tax increase on eggs doesn’t start and stop with the egg producers. Business taxes are always like falling dominoes. When the tax shows up on the new price of eggs in the grocery store, consumers face difficult decisions. Will it be business as usual and egg purchases remain constant, or will the consumer cut back on egg purchases? Experts tell us that any product increase forces consumers to look for alternative solutions. If one doubts this, speak with NetFlix and find out what happened when they summarily raised their prices. They lost millions of customers!
Let’s then assume that consumers cut back on egg purchases. This means the grocery store must cut their orders for eggs. When the order reductions hit the farmer’s desk and they can’t sell all the eggs produced, then they have to find ways to cut their supplies.
Soon, farmers discover that without the level of sales they had they cannot afford any luxuries. They must lay off workers, sell vehicles and equipment, and ask for debt payment extensions, since they will not be able to operate as planned.
Banks that have financed egg producers will begin to see their profits dwindle and go into the red. When this happens, banks use protective measures by creating new lending criteria that makes business loans near impossible to get. Now, every business in town suffers causing everyone issues from a seemingly innocent $2.50 tax.
Finally, please consider how this new egg tax has enriched anyone. No, the manufacturer (farmer) didn’t win. The consumer didn’t win. The poor and needy didn’t win. The banks didn’t win. The local businesses didn’t win. Wait, is government the only winner?
Who in government understands the basic fact that on average a 1% increase in tax rates takes 9 times that amount out from the private sector? Any government that goes over the 10% flat tax rate is a government headed toward a suicidal mission that will collapse a society. No, please don’t take our word for this fact, but look around at the cities, counties, States, and Nations that are now bankrupt. How are they dealing with business taxes? What is their greatest tax rate?
“When Government over reaches its tentacles and thrusts itself into the Business Community, everyone loses.” Yes, shockingly even the Government that foolishly taxes business ends up being the big losers. Isn’t stupidity bliss?
Governments do not give to the economic well-being of any society but are instead a “financial drain” on societies. Government is inherently a “spendaholic.” That’s why God places a maximum limit on government spending without any provision for increasing this amount.
Factually, governments are abusive toward taxpayers and today’s bureaucrats seem it is not their responsibilities to be good stewards of taxpayer money. Instead, today’s government agencies tell us they accept a certain percentage of waste and corruption. Can we imagine any private sector business allowing this? President Obama promised to cut 300 Billion in government waste and fraud. Has he succeeded? Please let us know when he does!
Void of profit incentives, government turns a deaf ear upon wise and established financial techniques in favor of “financial theories” like Keynesian economics. Government must adhere to simple math and forgo new-age math and gimmicks that powerful Government leaders display in their plans to overthrow God.

I am convinced the coming Presidential election will touch every American as well as future generations, in some way.
Question: “Is there ‘anyone’ in America that is better off today, than 4-years ago?”
If you can answer that you are better off, then perhaps you have some justification to vote your selfish way disregarding the pain and suffering that is clear to the majorities of Americans, from coast to coast.
However, if you are a person with one ounce of empathy for your fellow Americans, please do your research and don’t vote for selfish reasons but rather to help “ALL” Americans move toward resolutions that will return sanity, decency, employment, homes, autos, education, opportunity, hope, and Godliness back into America to help “ALL” citizens.
For many Americans that may remain confused about this coming election, perhaps something a big simpler would motivate you to vote not from emotions but from fact…
Please take a break to consider why so much is at stake in the upcoming presidential election. If your neighbor, family member, or loved one remains asleep, please wake them and get them to read the following information and do some fact-finding missions.
Please ask yourself why anyone in their right mind would vote for a Presidential Candidate that is working hard to… keep the unemployed, unemployed… to keep gas prices higher, higher… to keep our educational system producing Illiterates, illiterates… to make green energy failures, failures… to keep our Troops in harm’s way, in harm’s way… to keep the poor, poor… to pressure businesses heavily regulated, regulated… to keep medical care being rationed, rationed… to support anti-American groups, be anti-American… and to make the US Constitution, unconstitutional?
Less than a few years ago, no one would have been able to predict America would ever have a Presidential candidate like this! How did America get this way? Who is at fault or is it a good thing?
April 8, 2012 ~ Easter Sunday where we are learning that Jesus Christ has risen… President Obama is sinking!Posted: 04/08/2012
On January 20, 2009, a young White-Black assumed the office of the President of the United States. Unfortunately, this President will prove to the world that he will become the most unlearned person in any room he enters. Filled with “theories” and a faithful follower of veritaphobic religions, he began working his smoke and mirror games on the public and convinced Congress he knew what he was doing and began spending taxpayer money like there was no tomorrow!
Before Congress realized who and what he was all about, President Obama had emptied the US Treasury leaving all of his colleagues and political supporters enriched with billions upon billions of dollars and poor taxpayers with empty pockets, lost savings, and no retirement funds. Now that this theoretician has come out of the closet and now exposed as a demagogue, most Americans are demanding his drunken spending spree be stopped.
As America sits at this major crossroad in history, it will be interesting to see who wins the battle. Will the rich and powerful continue to take advantage of the poor or will the battlefield be leveled by Congress to keep this demagogue in check?
Consider the reality that Americans now face… if we had to flee America, for any reason, where would we travel? America has been the home for misfits and unwanted people of all societies since its beginning days. No matter what, America has been the safety net for oppressed people from all walks of life and every country.
When we see President Obama weakening America and making America the laughing-stock of the world, many Americans become upset and depressed knowing how badly his theories are hurting every American and foreigner seeking a safety net. Instead of thanking God for all the blessings He has poured out upon America, President Obama remains stuck in his theories and time warp yelling we must retreat to the 1800s, as quickly as possible.
Did he learn his theories from his élite schools or…
When unfounded theories move from the drawing board on to the backs of real people, the implementation should be done very cautiously. Such is not the case of President Obama. No matter the outcome, pain, and damage his intention is to lead America backwards!
The good news we have and can hold with certainty from this Easter Sunday is knowing that Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, has risen and will respond to our prayers. However, before praying we must exercise 1 John 1:9 to be in fellowship and allow God to respond. America must return to the days when She studied and taught God’s word from the original languages from a Pastor-Teacher able to teach line upon line and toss out the Sermons and man’s words in favor of God’s words.
- The sun to keep us warm,
- The earth to live on,
- The moon to shine through the night,
- Knowledge to make us stronger,
- Families to get us through the rough spots in the road,
- Stars that allow us to look up and marvel at the sights,
- Clouds that turn into bursts of fresh water to nurture the earth, animals, and people,
- Rainbows that tell us the world will not be destroyed by another flood,
- Trees to give shade and food,
- Grasses to allow us to look upon the fields and admire her beauty,
- Lakes and oceans to give endless supplies of fun, food, travel, and beauty,
- Oil and gas to power our way into the future, and
- The only begotten Son of God, even Jesus Christ, to die for the sins of the world, and guarantee eternal life!
Yes, God is a wonderful God that loves us very much and continues to give to all of His children as He sees fit.
As we go through this festive season, let’s all try to remember our responsibilities toward one another (By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:34-36)… why we are on this earth (And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon (Satan); and the dragon fought and his (Satan’s followers or fallen Angels) angels, Revelation 12:6-8) or as we know it as the war between Satan and Jesus Christ… and what God expects from all of us in living within a Christ centered life (Casting down imaginations (false doctrines), and every high thing (false teachers) that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:4-6… And that ye study, to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; 1 Thessalonians 4:10-12).
And she (Mary) brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes (the cloth used during those days to prepare bodies for their funeral), and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:6-8
Luke 2:15-17 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
Matthew 2:9-11 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.
The many millions of dollars in gifts provided to Joseph, Mary, and Jesus would allow them to become great leaders of the world.
Secular history teaches us that Joseph went on to become the largest Carpenter known to the world (in today’s American vernacular this term would be a General Contractor). His specialty was building ports all over the world to generate greater commerce opportunities and allow business opportunities to spread to all people from all lifestyles.
Joseph expanded his career immediately after the Christ Child was born and built homes where his work would take Mary and their Son. Joseph provided the finest and best of what his wealth could provide for his family. They were always at the highest levels of wealthy societies and prominence within the cities where their homes were located.
This escalation of wealth and prominence soon forced many government rulers to feel threatened since Joseph, his company, and his family was not beholden to any government leader for their success and wealth.
Government leaders had worked hard to convince and rule the masses with an iron fist. Legislators were successful at convincing the masses the only way they could succeed and have any sustenance would be from government – not personal work ethics.
Suddenly, legislators found themselves up against something they had never encountered – free enterprise. Joseph and his family never needed any government to help them succeed. Whereas legislators were busy teaching the masses that government was the only solution to success.
Preferring to destroy Joseph, legislators linked together in a scheme to destroy Joseph’s family and kill the Son of God that was busy teaching the masses about God’s wisdom. Legislators had never been up against a force as strong as Christianity and they had no idea how to deal with it and continue to make people dependent upon them – not God.
Today, we know the rest of the story. Government leaders were successful in forcing Joseph to take alternate courses to continue his business and the only begotten Son of God was nailed to a cross, similar to a common criminal, and mocked by government officials and followers as the enemy to government.
Even though the governments used false charges to get their way and murder Jesus Christ, we find millions of people still pausing every December 25th to remember God’s great works and to worship His Son who died for you and me so we would have eternal life. That eternal life is still available for everyone today – not just for a special few.
You can have eternal life right where you sit, now, by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. There are no isles to walk, baptisms to attend, or buildings to enter. The gift is free and it is for anyone willing to ask.
Ephesians 2: 4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast.
