They spend wastefully …even, paying as much as $1000.00 for a hammer, or screwdriver. They spend revenue before it’s realized. Their R & D is faulty. They lie to their customers. They pass all increased ‘costs of operations’ down to the consumer. They, seemingly, have an unlimited (yet… unwilling) source of investors. They often fail… or refuse to pay their bills on time and get away with it. Sometimes, even… they simply… Will NEVER pay up. They can force you to buy their products. And penalize you if you don’t. They interfere with the lives of their customers. They can confiscate your assets at will.
If their customers cannot afford their products, they can selectively …just give their products away, and you pay for it anyway. If they think you have too much, they will take it from you, and re-distribute it to someone else… almost always without due-process. If you don’t adhere to their policy, they can have you “put away.” Most often for mundane, and trivial things.
They can and routinely do …lie, cheat, steal …and can even have one ‘legally’ incarcerated. Or eliminated if they choose. They can spy on you, listen in on your phone calls, sell your personal information, confiscate your property, ruin your reputation, criminalize you, decriminalize you, and if one’s not very clever themselves… when you die they’ll take everything you have.
They have unlimited products, unlimited revenue, an unlimited customer base… PLUS they are totally unaccountable to anyone but themselves. They pay themselves enormous salaries, outlandish benefits, and special treats reserved only for management. They even send their members on annual all-expenses-paid… vacations to all sorts of foreign countries. And get this… if they run out of money they just print some more. They EMPLOY about 2.7 million people with….over one-half of their management being millionaires… and their CEO’s making millions upon millions when they retire.
We are cautioned in Romans 13:1-7 – Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities or there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same…
Who are they… you ask? The United States Government and their exclusive membership …the US Congress. God Bless the USA.
