Dear Church Pastor

 

Restore Prosperity and Liberty

Bible; Prolonging Our Days in the Land

Bible: We Ought to Obey God Rather than Man

Bible: To Guide our Feet in the way of Peace

The Two STATES of the United States

 

Since 2003 the federal government is spending (in compliance with current law) so much that if it taxed us at 100% of our income it would still have a deficit. This is a red flag situation that, I believe, requires correction.

 

Our Churches were very active politically both before and during our beginning as a nation; I believe and urge that the Church is our only hope to save our nation and our people from failure. The Church has a very unique advantage; about 70% of the people claim to be Christians.

 

Deuteronomy 5:33    Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.

 

Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, we ought to obey God rather than men.

 

Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

 

Lu 4:6 & 7 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

 

OUR NATION; The United States of America

We became the most prosperous nation in the world by 1893; we doubled the wealth production of Britain.  In that era the people ran most of the economy; the federal government’s share was about 3.1% to pay for our defense and for government wages. In 1893 the average wage for the people was 7 cents per hour and there was no minimum wage.

 

Today’s numbers: Tax in 2015 was 20.7%. But 45% pay no income tax so the effective average tax for those who do pay was 37.6%.  The federal government’s share of the economy is 37.6% vs 1893 the government share was 3.1%. We the people must rein in our excessive federal government.


 

OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SPENDING BEYOND ABILITY TO PAY

Our production of wealth growth, with ups and downs, continues to this day; BUT “we the people” grew our federal government faster than the economy. So much growth in spending that in 2003; if they taxed us at 100% of our income the federal government would still have a deficit.

 

This excessive deficit spending has continued to present time in 2018.

 

SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE UNFUNDED LIABILITY

Congress collects from the people for Social Security and Medicare, BUT; congress spends that money on receipt on routine expenses. The government has IOUs with our names, and with future collections, hopes to pay what was promised. Result, an unfunded liability estimated to be $210 trillion.

 

The above is a private sector evaluation of the Social Security and Medicare debt. Our government requires of larger corporation to us GAAP accounting practices while the federal government uses cash accounting, thusly it significantly understates its debt.

 

The federal government significantly under collects for Medicare:  Per the 2017 “Daily Treasury Statement” amount collected for Medicare, $41.4 billion, amount spent $700.1 billion. To pay the full cost of Medicare using premiums, the premiums we should be collecting 16.9 times the current collection rate.

 

INFLATION     HYPERINFLATION?

Inflation, as we speak. With our current level of spending, this will probably bring about hyperinflation. Hyperinflation in 12 years per this website?      Hyperinflation in about 2 years per this website?  

 

This once most prosperous nation on earth is now in a dive toward financial failure. And, there are other issues not covered in this abbreviated letter.  More details in online version.

 

This is an unbelievable challenge. People love Social Security and Medicare; but these programs, as run by our federal government are financially breaking our nation. We the people created the problem, now we the people must fix the problem. We the people need help from the Church to make the corrections.

 

EDUCATION

Prior to 1900, liberty was fostered such that our children were taught as parents chose. Today, however, the state denies our liberties of conscience and teaches our children that there is no God and that evolution is how we came about. Parents can send their children to non government schools but those parents must pay for both their school of choice and the tax for the government school. That problem is fixable with a constitutional amendment.

 

HOPE FOR REAL CHANGE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

About 70% of the people polled respond that they are Christian; that is a super majority. Pew Research Pole of over 35,000 Americans in 50 states, and another.

 

WHO WILL EDUCATE THE PEOPLE?

The news media? No, since 1935 they are controlled by the super rich, the super rich have a different agenda; one world government. Please see this video.

The government or our government schools? No.

The Church. I believe that THE CHURCH is the only AND the BEST answer.

 

THE HOPE IS:

that the people restore the government to the constitution as written; and

to correct past errors, a few constitutional amendments are proposed.

It is hoped to accomplish the above by electing congress persons that understand the problems and commit to fixing them.

It is hoped that the Church will study our problems and educate the people, from God’s Word so that the people will work to elect constitutional congress persons.

 

THE EARLY WAY OF LIFE

Education: people used the “New England Primer” to teach reading and writing and that there is a God and how to pray.  

 

“This IS a Christian Nation,” per Supreme Court Syllabus (1892).

 

THE JOHNSON AMENDMENT

President Trump made a campaign commitment to repeal this law, but it has not happened to date.

 

Per the IRS publication 1828 entitled “Tax Guide for Churches & Religious Organizations:

The Church is allowed to host candidates and candidate forums under the condition they do not support or oppose any candidate (even for dog catcher).

The above is my understanding; please study and understand the guide if you choose to become active politically.

 

CHURCH, WILL YOU HELP?

This letter is intended to motivate the Church to educate the Christians so that “we the people” know why our country is financially failing and elect congress persons and legislators that also understand how we got to where we are today and how we can restore the government to compliance with our US Constitution; as written!

 

The Church was very involved in our pre constitution days; Election Day sermons were common practice in 18th Century New England. The Church, was very active in the shaping of our government. See chapter 3 of  The New England Clergy and The American Revolution.”

 

Now our people need the Church more than ever before.

 

Article V corrections are constitutional amendments. Article VI requires constitutional compliance to the constitution as written,

 

This video discusses Article VI corrections; action on this front is very optimistic in potential of changing the attitude of congress persons that are in office. Please see this one hour video: “Rein in Big Government

 

What can the Church Do? I believe that the Church can teach the truth to both adults and children about the constitution and violations of constitution and what the government has done to us as a result of the demands of the people.

 

The action of the Church, I propose, is urgent. The people do not seem to know that the government is deficit spending to maintain the appearance of tremendous wealth. Last government fiscal year, (ended September 30, 2017) in compliance with existing law, the federal government spent more than it took in; by over $1.8 billion per day, 7 days per week.

 

Thanks for your consideration of this and attached and referenced information.

 

It is my prayerful hope that the Church will consider helping in the effort to “Prolong Our Days in the Land?  It is my hope to contact many Churches in the United States and I hope for a response via email; my email address is Herb@herbpeters.com  

 

Sincerely;
