I'm not afraid Bohm - all the USA could be 50 individual countries but we are the "united states". In the end, we don't DESERVE to have much excess while others are starving.
It doesn't look like though that it will be a smooth transition. Want to think so.
But the real thread is, and nobody can deny, that a new world order is happening. DOesn't mean anybody who agrees it's happening agree's they are out to exterminate everyone, just strictly on facts, a new world order is being created and almost complete. It's actually a relief I suppose for the moment, that most don't realize.
We'll see what happens. Aside from bible prophecies and such, just on economics...........one fear with many is that USA money crashes, and since we 'import' everything, mass starvation. 'Hopefully' maybe for the transition, the current trade ratios would be put in for everyones cash. USA each dollar = 4.5(world currency), Mexico each Peso=1.2, etc. Least to start since all countries food and such is reliant on the current system, at the start atleast they'd be able to maintain.
'sometimes' things can be surprising. For example, many think IRS is evil, if they are, they got nice people working there, I call them with questions, they are very nice and helpful, I overpaid taxes and they helped me get a refund for it.
During all of this, up to now with all I've read and seen, that being good to your neighbor, and respecting the government as long as not trying to make you go against your conscience is the way to go. (if your conscience won't allow you to war, etc.) When Babylon, and other nations took over Jerusalem, seems they were respectful and overall okay. Like when Israel was to be taken over by Babylon, those that took their punishment were treated well, those who tried to get out of it, are the ones who died.
Trust in God to guide you, keep checking if your heart is pure, because you can see a few different messages in the scriptures. Almost as if certain ones will see certain things for certain reasons, some good some bad.
