To the editor:
Calvin Coolidge said, "They (the founding fathers) were intent upon establishing a Christian commonwealth in accordance with the principle of self-government. They were an inspired body of men. It has been said that God sifted the nations that He might send choice grain into the wilderness ... who can doubt that it has been guided by a divine providence."
Thomas Jefferson said, "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."
In 1881, a joint session of Congress concluded we were a Christian nation.
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, a "social gospel" was introduced and spread across American which resulted in neutralizing Protestants from protesting.
This opened the door for the global money powers to infect our republic with their two opposing forces, Marxism/socialism and capitalism/fascism to gain control of our Constitutional money system and overthrow our Christian-inspired free enterprise economic system which made us the envy of the world.

In 1850, French economist Frederic Bastiat stated, "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
And this is America's problem totally: We have a unlawful fake money system. The result is now we are in more debt than the rest of the world.
We have become a nation of economic slaves who are owned and controlled by the international bank cabal whose demonic green and hunger for power has the whole world in hopeless debt and confusion for "the love of money is the root (cause) of all evil."
