Welfare Money…How Long Will It Last?

According to some of the figures I picked up on the internet today, in 2012 there were 109.6 million people drawing welfare in these United States of America. According to another number I saw a few days ago, total benefits being paid to these Americans today is about 168.00 dollars US per day. Now, I’m no  math major, but even I can tell you that a number like that is higher than I can count. I am estimating conservatively of over 600 billion per year in welfare cost. I would like for one of our democrats to tell me where the money is going to come from to continue. Plus the government employees pay and benefits. Plus our military upkeep and improvements. Plus our infrastructure cost. Plus supporting those other countries that think we have some money and expect us to share…… A government backed by paper cannot exist very long and how we have continue this long is beyond me. I’m pretty sure the gold in Fort Knox would cover a few million dollars, but Ft. Knox would probably have to be several hundred feet deep to contain enough gold to cover our trillions (I don’t know what you call a number that would cover all of our debt, do you?) of dollars debt. We are never going to get out of debt, so everyone seems to take the stance of “what, me worry”…..I suppose that is the best way to handle it as there appears to be no way out. No, that’s not true as the way out is Jesus Christ and His kingdom and I think we are probably pretty close to “end times”. Seems like to me recovery without Christ is impossible.
