“World leaders urge Greece to wield spending axe”
April 30, 2010
Unstable global financial markets, waves of bankruptcy, deepening unemployment, economic busts, markets plunging, collapsing consumer confidence, banking systems crashing “it does not seem that there is any place on earth immune from the financial crisis.” Can someone save the world from a global economic meltdown? Who has the wisdom to deal with the crisis? As economies crumble, poverty soars, and financial gloom spreads like wildfire, one thing is certain: Never before has there been such a need for someone to step up to the world’s economic helm. The repercussions of economic globalization are bigger than anyone ever imagined. The effect that one nation’s financial who have on others and ultimately the rest of the world is unprecedented. There’s a need for someone to man the controls, someone who can rescue the world from further turmoil. Who will be able to rescue the world from this mess Where have all the leaders gone? Who is capable? The capitalistic financiers of Europe have got a whole lot invested in this America, and they don’t want to lose it. The European money boys are left holding her bag full of fewer dollars. If they keep trying to support her, they’re going to go bankrupt! The infamous global financial system cryptically spoken of in the Bible’s book of Revelation as the “Mark of the Beast” without which no one will be able to buy or sell is coming closer to inception every day. Crises like this current one make people yearn for the economic stability that the framers of this new system will proclaim as their aim. The value of the new digital money will be guaranteed, but will come with a price, and that is your allegiance to the global regime that backs it. Your money may seem safe, but it will cost you as much as your soul.
