The Crucifixion of Capitalism

Updated on April 24, 2011

During this Easter Season I have been reflecting upon the mystery that is Christianity. If you truly believe as I do, then you have to accept the crucifixion and death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for what it is, the sacred mystery upon which our faith is built. There are many Christian Denominations and churches but all are centered on the one focal point of our faith, Jesus Christ suffered, died and rose from the dead for us. That is the source of this hub, I am drawing a parallel between the Holiest of all trilogies the passion of the Christ with the ungodliness of the destruction of this country by what I consider the work of the devil; possibly the anti Christ himself. Please don’t consider this to be blasphemy in any shape matter or form; it is simply a comparison of the mystery of our faith to the destruction of our country through the prism of the Easter Vigil!

As I sat on my front porch the other day and reflected on this season suddenly a parallel mysteriously appeared between the trilogy that is the Easter Season and the past two plus years that has come to pass in this country. Jesus Christ was crucified and died for the redemption of all mankind; I am in no way a biblical scholar but as I have read various accounts it was an excruciating and prolonged death. Well in order for Christ to rise from the dead logically a death had to first occur. OK Patriot we accept that now where are you going with this.

Well I believe what we have witnessed over the past two plus years is the painful prolonged death of Capitalism. There is no way the policies of this Regime have just been simply misguided or wrong. No I believe there has been a strategic assault on the foundation of this country’s economy, Capitalism! From the government takeover of healthcare, the auto industry and the banking industry to the overregulation of the environment and the cancerous expansion of the private sector unions; there has been a deliberate effort to destroy the underpinnings of this economy! Now we are faced with trillion dollar deficits; $5.00 a gallon gasoline; more and more liberal judges overturning the will of the people at every turn; over one half of our state’s facing bankruptcy; a moral decay of society in general led by the elite Hollywood left and a Federal Government that is printing money at record levels which will send us into an era of spiraling inflation making the Jimmy Carter years appear prosperous! So I believe our economy and in particular Capitalism is on the verge of death.

Now back to the Easter Vigil for the second comparative analysis. Jesus was laid in a tomb for 3 days before rising from the dead on Easter Sunday. Remember one of Pilate’s advisors convinced him to station Roman Guards at the entrance of the tomb lest some of the disciples or other followers come and steal the body and proclaim the resurrection. Well I believe the next 18 months parallels the 3 days in the tomb. We are faced with an election which will be the most critical in this nation’s history. We cannot stand 4 more years of this Regime. The work they started will exacerbate as they move forward implementing their destructive anti-capitalist agenda. A battle will ensue the likes of which we haven’t seen before; the Regime and their willing accomplices in the media; i.e. their Roman Guards stationed at the tomb, will paint the Republicans as destructive; wanting to balance the budget on the backs of the poor and all along proposing no cuts of their own but touting a massive tax increase which if implemented will send unemployment further skyrocketing and the economy further down the toilet. Yes my friends these next 18 months will be brutal in terms of Class Warfare. So just as Christ lay in the tomb awaiting the Resurrection so now the country lays in wait for the next 18 months awaiting the election.

Finally the day of the Resurrection, November 5, 2012, will be upon us; but will the resurrection of the economy occur or will the country reject the message and continue further down the path to its’ final destruction. We are facing a demonic message unlike anything we have seen before and the forces of evil are strong and willing. Unlike Christ who chose as his time on earth an unsophisticated media void era this new anti Christ has seized upon every modern day convenience to continue casting his demonic spell over this country. But ultimately choose we all must; choose 4 more years of this and that shining city on the hill we become nothing more than a memory; reject the media assault and thus reject the Regime and the Phoenix will once again rise from the ashes and become even greater than before; the choice is yours!

Again I apologize if in some way I have offended anyone with this analogy; given the season I felt it was appropriate. I believe God gave the world two great gifts; His first and greatest gift was his Son who died for us; this act was pre-ordained. God’s second gift was the United States of America which has done more good for the world in its’ 200 plus year existence than any other country that ever existed. I don’t believe it was God’s intention for his second gift to be killed off so quickly while there is still so much that needs to be done in this world; don’t let it happen. Reject the Regime!

      Personally, I think your analogy is spot on. Capitalism is under attack. Now we are in the process of establishing class warfare. Once Obama has got that rolling he'll be on his way to convincing people that wealth should be redistributed. Given the way things are, I can see his evil message resonating. Up and awesome, Patriot.

      Glad to hear you've joined the Tea Party; it will be difficult for the 53% of us that still pay taxes to win out November 2012 given some of our numbers include College Professors, Union Members, Hollywood lefties and minorities; also don't forget about ACORN and their tricks!

      I'm not sure why you would offend anyone with your analogy. It is an excellent one, along with your thought process here.

      Up, useful and awesome. That's a 3 banger.

      I agree, there has been a fervent effort on the part of the administration to destroy capitalism in this country and that is why you see the huge ground swell of Tea Party people. They are on to him and they plan on doing something about it, and I have joined them. We will not let communists destroy our country. Ain't gonna happen.
