Why America’s Restoration Will Fail

Nothing is more predictive of a nation’s demise than the thought that our leaders disregard the lessons of history and believe they are the recipients of the ultimate truth.

Cleaning the dung off your boots as you walk through the halls of Congress has become far more difficult these days.

The effort has become so distracting that millions of voters have forgotten that our country was once a nation founded on the basic principles found in the Bible. Forgetting them is one thing, but actually mocking those principles is beyond any degree of civility.

Historically, America became the nation of distinction and integrity because of the belief in freedom untarnished by our cultural nature to stray outside the boundaries of those principles. Over time, we have not only stretched those boundaries beyond endurance, corrupted the foundational structure of our nation, and compromised the common sense we were born with.

Without question, we have endeared ourselves to the greed and pleasure precepts that have led to the complete downfall of every country in the world over time, and are certain to cause the fall of America as well.

When a major portion of our population finds solace in reveling in the sins so often described in the Bible, the rest of us pay the price, and rightly so. I say that because principled people have chosen to turn the other cheek instead of facing up to the giant apostasy as David did with Goliath. We have all helped to create the coming fall from freedom and America’s demise.

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”

Psalm 9:17

Most Americans should feel ashamed that we have permitted this fall away from the religious, moral, and principled clout we had at the start. It does seem evident that we are also co-conspirators in this destructive process because of our persistent inertia and lack of respect for the foundations that made this nation the leader of the world.

The question that should be asked is, “Is America over the edge already, and unrepairable?”

Should America be recycled, trashed, or continue sucking up to the mental and physical corruption of our society?

The impetus to clean the dung off your boots can be found in the most soul inspiring piece of literature ever created for man’s and nation’s survival. Likely, you just don’t want to hear the truth about what is required of you and for this nation to survive. No human has come up with the answers, but there is someone who has.

Aren’t there at least a dozen or so brave folks (Americans) out there who would give their right arm for the truth that is laid out so plainly in the Old Testament?

Those who have never read the Bible carefully, or at all, would be wise to take time to read about what it takes for America to be overhauled. It’s right there in black and white to read.

The Old Testament, starting from the Book of Deuteronomy through the Book of Job, is an astounding factual blueprint for America’s restoration and survival. It’s so clear and understandable that it blows your mind. Isn’t it interesting that no politician has ever mentioned that, nor will they?

Wouldn’t it be even more reassuring to know that at least a few of our leaders and politicians have read the Bible cover to cover, or even a part of it? This is assuming that every person of maturity has some form of religious belief and is in search of fundamental truth.

Then again, our president and legislators are so busy creating new laws to restrict our freedoms, spending our tax money to increase their control over our lives, and offering rewards to those who live on entitlements, that their time with their creator, at best, barely measures up to “adequate,” if at all.

There has been no news coverage that I have found over the past four years confirming that our president or his family attends church on a regular basis, or at all. Why not? Could it be that his standards of religion are quite different than those that this country has prospered with for over 200 years?

It makes one wonder how many of our presidents have kept a Bible on their desk in the Oval Office, or at least in one of the desk drawers. At least the Christians and Jews know why that’s important and what it means to prophesy. At the very least, it would imply that they respected the power and integrity of the Bible, even if they never read a word of it.

Biblical presence in the oval office might not in many people’s minds add up to what many consider the true power behind our nations leadership, such as the “Skulls” Society of Yale University, the “by invitation only” secretive Bilderberg Group of world leaders pushing for The New World Order since 1954, or our own leaders who belong, join, or send prominent government officials to participate in their secret agendas. Hell no-it couldn’t be another conspiracy… could it?

Does anyone out there really understand why America became the land of freedom and opportunity? You know… the nation that has been the one nation in the world that most subdued people struggle so hard to reach.

If you understand how this nation of “organized immigrants” was able to create abundance in the midst of turmoil and war, I salute you. So, what are you doing today to help restore it?

With our history of over five decades of persistent crumbling of our government and society, one would think that someone would have looked at the Bible for guidance. Yet, it’s obvious our leaders didn’t and won’t-with very few exceptions.

The toss-up between recycling America or trashing it remains a dilemma that even the most intelligent leaders, who have a passion to fix things, are cleverly prevented from doing so. That should create a flash of curiosity in any person’s mind.

Our national leaders, who have the intent to retrieve the power we once saluted with passion, haven’t even been able to make a dent in the effort to penetrate the money-power-political circles because of the political corruption present in our congress of indentured servants.

This is why the trashing of our society and financial system might be the best choice. Even the WSJ mentions that we may need to fall over the financial cliff currently to get America back on a survival path again.

The public frustration caused by increasing disagreement among legislators, their rejection of reasonable ideas and solutions for resolving our national debt, and overt partisanship leaves most of us in a give-up mode, or worse.

Certainly this aberrant congressional process is confirmed by the complete departure from the art of resourceful negotiation, a completely stonewalled congress with no end in sight, and the blessings of citizens who promote and support these atrocious acts of incompetence.

After all, if there is no effective solution possible to America’s unsustainable debt problems created by our congressional leaders locked in irresolvable conflict, then America will fall and anarchy will rise as history tells us.

It means reason is trumped by idols and beliefs, all of which provide no sustainable system for our nation’s survival.

It also means there will be increased corruption in politics and in our society-not less. The disregard for any retreat from our pending financial cliff by the predominantly ignorant elements of our population, who are easily persuaded to continue to support politicians who openly keep the cart rolling downhill towards chaos, are the dark forces we should fear.

Let’s not forget that we are being held hostage to the desires of a dominant and morally corrupt society as well, bent on entitlement over responsibility. That can’t end up good for anyone.

Now, if you are a believer in the theory that we can fix America’s problems ourselves, take a look at how good of a job we have done recently, say over the last 50 years. Add to that the fact that the reversibility of what has already been set in place is nothing more than a pipedream.

Wouldn’t it be great to eliminate the option of re-election of any political individual-no more billions of dollars wasted on re-election of politicians? No more senate majority leader, continually reelected, just for the bounty offered to the electorate of “have-nots.”

Would you like to learn the lessons about the repeated downfall and reconstruction of the nations and societies that happened about 2,000 – 3,000 years ago? Don’t fool yourself. The issues, causes, results, and outcomes of those ancient nations are similar to ours today.

Skeptics, troubled about Biblical proof, are faced with proving those things centuries ago didn’t happen, God didn’t intervene, and remarkable intelligence never existed in those times.

The blueprint we should use can be found in the Old Testament:

Since it is unlikely that America can be saved by any human efforts, it seems incredibly smart to check for other alternatives. Of course, those who don’t believe God was or is responsible for anything that happens to us are left to continue their unrestrained search for dominance.

The rest of us know God exists without the need for proof. We have a strong faith in the power of prayer. Would you believe that there are even some medical doctors who pray for the Lord’s help for curing patient’s suffering?

The Bible throughout is consistent in providing lessons and explaining the value of God’s commandments. They are only visible and found by deep reading of the Bible that we should all feel the obligation to read, and re-read.

Concerning people who read the Bible, only 15% ever read it word for word expecting to gain the magical understanding of everything said there. About 3% of so called “Bible readers,” only scan topics and read intermittently certain pages that draw their attention.

That leaves 82% who claim to believe in God who never read the Bible, yet figure they know Jesus and his Father well enough to make it to heaven without doing their required homework on a regular basis.

The above details are important for understanding what my rant is telling you and who should pay attention.

Details of the blueprint to prevent the demise of America:

For those who give a damn about this country, I see the possibility of the resurrection of our nation. Our nation has been shot, skinned, and then butchered-with the flesh saved in the freezer. Too graphic for you?

The values are still there and are frozen in time and history. Some of the economic and political fat won’t be saved. But, for the most part, the essential and important parts of this nation are restorable and still usable.

Even though the Old Testament is often considered to be information that was appropriate only for those old times, but not applicable to the present world, the fall and rise of those ancient countries were directly influenced by God’s grace that the people didn’t earn or deserve as sinners.

Grace means that God, out of a clear blue sky, will fill your pockets with gold nuggets no matter whether you earned it, asked for it, or deserved it-out of Love. Yes, there are a few preliminary conditions to receiving His unlimited charity. That’s the point of these lessons I’m talking about here.

These lessons begin and end with God’s chosen land and people of Israel. Surrounding countries and territories that were not Jewish unknowingly were partners with God in the punishment of the Jews who had turned away from God.

It resulted in the Jewish people returning to trusting God alone-not the stone, wood, metal idols, or groves they prayed to for guidance. Most of the biblical promises made to the Jewish nation, given in the Bible, have come true.

Now, compare the similarities of then and now:

See if what is described next doesn’t mirror what is happening in our country today.

From about 1200 to 1500 B.C. to today, the Jews continue to be chosen by God to be his people. The Old Testament describes how God gave the Jews all the rules to abide by to remain in his favor.

He understood that all humans are sinners and would need strict guidance in view of their sinful nature, even requiring some trips to the woodshed (grandparents will tell you what that means, if you don’t know) for instruction and correction of mistakes.

Much of the time Israel was a single nation ruled by a series of kings. There was a time later when it was split into two separate nations of Israel and Judah. Not only did they fight with each other, but fought with all the nations surrounding them for various reasons.

Is America warring with other nations repeatedly?

No debate about that.

God saw what happened to each segment of the Jewish nation as it evolved. As expected, they would start out believing wholeheartedly in the power and goodness of the invisible God and were faithful to Him and His commandments. They lived and progressed abundantly under God’s commandments and more often than not remained at peace, no fighting, for years at a time.

Unfortunately, each time, while living and mixing with the idol-worshipers in their nation, the people soon began to feel so wonderful under their godless beach umbrellas in the desert that it was no longer necessary to maintain communication with the living God of Abraham.

So they began to turn to other gods and idol worship that offered more exciting and pleasurable worship methods all over again. Societies all became corrupt. Kings often were corrupt as well, requiring their subjects to worship other gods and idols.

Are Americans turning away from God today en masse? Think of all the examples of that today which are evident in the media and everywhere you turn.

Each time the people of Israel reached a level of disobedience that was intolerable to God; they were taken on a trip to the woodshed. God chose various ways to make the people stay on the right path but it would work only for a while, then fail.

Occasionally, punishment was by famine or pestilence. Other times He arranged for other countries to conquer Israel and make the people slaves for decades. All their possessions were confiscated leaving them nothing.

Here it comes…

It didn’t take Israel long to discover that, if they stuck to the Biblical rules and worshiped God only, that God would insure they won their battles even when far outnumbered and significantly unprepared.

After that, they maintained trust in God alone. But, it always happened that they would again fall into idolatry and worse, in large numbers. And they’d go through the same fall and rise process again-and again-and again.

How many times have you recognized in America the teeth of failure repeatedly threatening the stability of our nation, and then recover from the damage until the next time?

America hasn’t had the advantage yet of going through that same scenario in its extreme. But, we have been begging for it for quite a while. God in all probability is likely to treat us exactly like He did ancient Israel. He brought Israel back from extinction many times before, so why not America?

OH… yes. There are some very clear conditions to be met first, lest we forget.

Those conditions will probably require buying into certain beliefs and commitments by the majority of the population regarding religion, morality, beliefs, actions to be taken, and changes in the fabric of this country, for starters. You and I know what the chances of that happening are.

My assumption is, should these formidable changes be forthcoming, about half of the population in America will be insulted, offended, heartbroken, and extremely angry at those who would dare take away their pleasure palaces, unlimited personal rights, and determination to make their own rules regardless of who it affects.

Isn’t that somewhat like anarchy-and a bit like a president who has and intends to expand his power outside his constitutional duties regardless of the consequences?

Can you imagine America surviving without gay bars, abortion, entitlements, high taxes, over regulation, and the Electoral College?

Now I ask you, “Do you really and honestly believe that continually going on as we are today will lead to some profound miraculous changes that will somehow alter the fixed minds, outrageous beliefs, persistent greed, pervasive political corruption, embedded power and control by old boys clubs, and out of control morality issues?”

Are we now back to exactly where we started with no solutions about saving America? Things don’t just happen, as some believe. Fate is not a dependable friend. Hope is a transient dream, at least regarding America’s outcome. Isn’t trashing America the best place to start over again fresh?

The bottom line:

Perhaps, we are looking at the wrong approach altogether. Since America has no options left, at least that are reasonable and doable, our country is doomed to fail and should. It implies that our economy will become bankrupt in real terms, the government will collapse totally, and anarchy will prevail.

Is it even conceivable that one person will come up with the ultimate plan to bring America back to its original founding status? Probably not.

How about a group of our leaders creating such a plan? Probably not, but our liberal population believes they can, even without God’s help.

You can salute any flag you want to resolve this crisis, but the actions needed to prevent this catastrophe are far more fearful than the thought of America’s collapse and dismemberment.

Leaders and politicians have been tip-toeing along the high wire, arrogantly doing it without a net below. I’d like to know where they are getting their supernatural confidence from.

The majority of the population in America remains ignorant of consequences, intolerant of changes, and are not capable of recognizing the difference between the frying pan and the fire.

So between the two options regarding America’s survival and return to the stability created by our founding fathers, either we accomplish it by ourselves or rely on the help God offers (if we ask for it). Only one of these options has a predictable outcome and reliable results.

It’s not my idea where it all comes from. The truth can always be found in the Bible as many of you know, and yet you don’t seem to know how to make the right things happen.

Is Market America The Right Business For You?

I was looking for a home based business and a friend of mine introduced me to Market America. I think I am like most people so I started searching on the internet for reports on this company. I don’t know if you have noticed this or not but when you are searching companies you always run into reports that say something like “Market America Scam” in the title. So what do you do when you see this? Does this stop you in your tracks or do you do more research.

I don’t know about you but I get curious about stuff like this. Is someone bashing this company because it did not work for them or is there some truth to it. So I did some more research. Market America has it’s main headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina and was founded by JR Ridinger and his wife Loren Ashley. They started the company in 1992. Like a lot of home based businesses this is an MLM company or a network marketing company. They do their marketing over the internet and have an online store. Most of their products are in the health and beauty arena. They are a huge company and have gone international by expanding in Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

“Market America Scam” Not True

Hopefully you have caught on and Market America Inc is not a scam. If you really study some of the articles or ads that are on the internet and say Market America Scam the authors or advertisers are really trying to get you to click on the ad or go read the article. I really believe most of these should be titled more like Market America Review. Just looking at this research you can see Marketing America is not a scam. So actually when you are searching and run into “Marketing America Scam” it is more likely a “Marketing America Review” and the writers of articles and ads are trying to get you to take a closer look at the company or the business opportunity they are pitching. So they are hoping you will sign on with them in whatever business they are in.

If you have ever been in a network marketing or a MLM company I’m sure you have noticed there are people who are making money and then there are people who are not making money. So when I read articles about the market America scam and they are truly talking about a scam, my guess is that this person did not make any money. So what do you think are these people going to blame themselves or say they got ripped off by the company? Market America has paid a ton of money out to people, in fact over two billion dollars. My guess is that these distributors called “Unfranchise Business Owners” do not think this is a scam. And in fact there are over 180,000 distributors in this company.

Is Market America Inc Good For You?

Only you can tell if Market America Inc is a good opportunity for you and your family. I believe by the results of my research and I think you will agree that this is really a legitimate business. They have great products, they are worldwide, and they have a pretty decent compensation plan. Again you are the only one who can tell if the business is a good fit for you.

If this is your first network marketing attempt or even if you have tried a couple other MLM businesses, you have to understand building one of these things takes time. After all Rome wasn’t built in a day. You have to realistic about this. If you are consistent in sharing this business with other people over an extended period of time you have a chance to make a ton of money.

Here is what you need to do. You need to put together a game plan. Once you get into an MLM or a network marketing company you should know or know somebody who will teach you how to promote your company, how to market your company, and how to drive traffic to your website. You will first be told to share this with your family and friends and then help other people do the same thing. But what happens after you go through your family and friends. You need a plan on what you are going to do after you dry up your warm market. There is more to knowing if the “Market America Scam” is true or not. You need to make sure you have a game plan to build any type of network marketing or MLM business.

An Insider Reviews The Market America Business And The Market America Business Plan (Part 1 of 2)

If you’re a spiritual person or someone that’s read about universal principles, Metaphysics or follow the teachings of Dr. Wayne Dyer… you’ll understand what he is alluding to when he says, “Thoughts become things.” As for JR and Loren Ridigner, the founders of Market America (MA), their thoughts were gigantic!

When starting the Market America Business and formulating the Market America business plan, JR wanted to correct many of the flaws with traditional business, network marketing and MLM. Because “what is working now” will be evolve, JR realized that there has been substantial time to sift through the numbers, trends and conventional business building tactics, which left him to lead this paradigm shift.

When constructing the MA business plan, JR’s concerns were vast, but he felt that every company designed their company’s blueprint around unrealistic expectations for what people were actually doing. Did you realize that statistics provided from the direct selling industry indicate that the average company distributor can effectively work and manage with 2.8 distribution channels?

Right then-in-there is a major mishap for most companies. Can you see how MLM companies that require you to build 5 distribution channels (legs) are setting you up for massive failure from the get-go?

JR off-set this variable by making the MA business plan and compensation model centered on a vertical structure. Although binary marketing has become increasingly popular over the years, the Market America business is classified as offering a binomial expansion program (not just a binary layout).

This unique positioning sees a Market America UnFranchise┬« owner needing to only build 2 distribution channels like any binary program, but there are some dramatic differences from Market America and other Binary type compensation plans. I’m going to share A MOST REVOLUTIONARY tweak that no other compensation plan in any industry can offer you. I did just say any industry by-the-way!

The tweak is that many people say that the MA business plan is capped. First off, if somebody says this… run as fast as you can. They are trying to sell you their reality because this is simply 100% false. If you want to understand both the math and logic of the pay plan and structural model, ask a qualified Market America UnFranchise┬« insider because they know the fancies that exist.

Truth be told, they know how MA works and how MA is constructed to off-set the woes of horizontal marketing. Horizontal marketing is how EVERY OTHER BUSINESS MODEL operates. This concept of horizontal marketing is simple to understand. If you owned a mom-and-pop business and wanted to open up location #2, would location #2 help location #1 in any way? No… they compete!

And if you owned a business that had various sales people working in a “team”, would sales person #1 help sales person #2 in any way? No… they also compete. I’ll provide anecdotal evidence. If you owned a real estate, financial brokerage or personal training studio, would the production of sales person #1, #2, #3, #4 or even sales person #100 help anybody else in any way? No… there is no financial synergy.

And finally, I’ll use a last and more elaborate example. If you owned a chain of franchises, would location #1 benefit #2 in any way? No… once again, they’re in completion and share no synergy in any way.

In fact, location #2 would cannibalize and compartmentalize every facet of location #1. Whether it the overhead or carrying costs… the sales and over-riding revenue of each independent location does not better the bottom line of the other in any way. People don’t realize what they are getting into in business.

And the worst of all of these models is multi-level marketing (MLM) because it compounds the negative effects of horizontal marketing. Although I’m a fan of the industry, company reps need to wake up and get educated because after the up-front recruiting bonuses, they’ve bought into a roller-coaster ride.

A 3rd Party Review of Market America From Someone Who Didn’t Join

If you’re checking out this review, you’re probably looking for some information on Market America. If you’re thinking about joining Market America, I want to encourage you to read this review so you can make an informed decision about the company and their business opportunity.

Market America was started in the early 90’s by founder J.R. Ridinger. It’s headquarters is currently located in North Carolina. The company’s provides a one-stop shopping website portal and offers an opportunity for people to shop online, from the comfort of their own home.

The company is growing exponentially and has been getting some attention in the media. They’ve been documented in Forbes magazine, People magazine, the Miami Herald, Entertainment Tonight and on CBS. But that’s not all. The company numbers are pretty impressive also. According to their company overview, the company has over 100,000 distributors, 6 million customers and $3 billion in accumulated retail sales. In addition, the company operates in the US, Canada, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Australia. There are 600 employees globally. And, the company sponsors several Olympic athletes. And,it seems there is a relationship between the Ridingers and several celebrities who often perform at company conventions.

As far as their products go, Market America offers a one-stop shopping website that allows people to purchase products and services from over 1,000 partner stores. There also several nutritional and weight loss products that are created, developed and branded by the company. What is interesting to note, especially if you’re looking to join, is that Market America branded products can not be found in any retail store. This exclusivity is good for distributors as they don’t have to compete with the big retailers, like reps have to do from other nutritional network marketing companies.

As far as their business opportunity goes, Market America runs on a binary compensation model. While distributors can earn upfront retail profits, the core of the compensation plan revolves around building residual income by building a loyal customer base that purchases products on a consistent basis. In fact, on their website, it is clear that they are promoting a “2-5 year plan” for distributors to change their financial lives. In my opinion, this is a good message as they are clearly saying that building long-term residual income takes time.

In closing, Market America is definitely a credible company to get involved with. They have a good management team, quality products and a lucrative compensation plan. In addition, it looks like they have major goals of opening more markets, which means more opportunity for distributors.

But, Market America will not make you rich. Yes, you read that correctly. While the company itself is a great company with high quality products, all the company will do is give you a vehicle and opportunity. And honestly, that’s all their supposed to do. At the end of the day, your success will depend on what you do, your ability to sponsor new people, sell products and build a productive organization. And in order to do all that, you need to be able to generate leads every day. If you can’t generate leads, there is no way you will be able to build a sizable business. So, if you want to succeed with your Market America business, it’s critical that you learn how to become a professional marketer so you can generate 25-50+ leads a day for your business.

My advice is that you use a self branding attraction marketing system that will allow you to generate an endless flow of leads. If you can combine a powerful lead generation system with Market America’s business opportunity, you can potentially be on your way to building a prosperous business for yourself.
