Here is the truth about the sorry state of our American Union.
- There have been 50 million abortions since Roe v Wade in 1973.
- 1 in every 15 people in the United States will actually do prison time. Many more are convicted of felonies but it is a first offense and they only get probation. Many more than that committed a felony but plea bargain to a lessor crime. Also, most crimes are never reported and/or the criminal either does not get caught or is not prosecuted for various reasons.
- Well over half of all American adults have used Illegal drugs at least once. Half of American school children use illegal drugs before the end of high school. About twenty percent of adults in America use drugs regularly.
- one in ten Americans are known to be alcoholics, many more abuse alcohol regularly.
- One in ten adults in American have more homosexual sexual contact than heterosexual contact.
- Half of marriages in America end in divorce.
- 95 percent of Americans have sex before marriage.
- About fifty percent of Americans are in debt excluding their house and cars. If you count houses and cars eighty percent of Americans are in debt.
- The American government has been spending beyond its means for decades. By 2020 just the interest payment on the national debt will take all the taxes collected in 2010 . Think about what that means for Americans.
- A million Americans have stopped paying their debts although they have the income to do so. The American taxpayer will pay most of the costs for the payments that they are not making through financial institution bailouts. The rest will be paid by higher loan rates for all. There is no free lunch.
- Between 15 to 20 million adults and adolescents have either problem or pathological gambling addictions. Americans gamble over a trillion dollars and lose almost 100 billion dollars each year.
- Those that have enough money to buy influence and media time, are the ones that generally get elected to higher office in America.
- Sixty percent of adult Americans are obese and a third of their children. We all will pay the long term medical costs for this.
- 75 percent of young Americans are not fit to qualify for the military because of health, drug use or their criminal record.
- Half of Americans pay no federal income taxes at all. A large percentage of those get federal benefits from the half that pay taxes.
- The actual unemployment rate in the United States is about 17 percent not the 9.7 reported figure. Even many of those that are employed are working in near minimum wage service jobs.
- Inflation in the United States is purposely under reported so those on fixed incomes lose a few percent of their buying power each year. At today’s interest rates you are losing wealth by just putting your money in a bank.
- There are about 700,000 know sex offenders in the United States and many more have never been caught.
- There are over 1.3 million pornography websites many involving children. Read the stats yourself, by the way, a third of our clergy are involved in porn. http://www.safefamilies.org/sfStats.php and http://www.blazinggrace.org/cms/bg/pornstats
- Christianity has been outlawed from the public arena in America.
- Only four percent of Americans, nine percent of born again Christians and fifty percent of protestant pastors have a Christian worldview.
Houston we have a problem! These are just some of the reasons why America is in decline and there is no political fix.
