Is it Time for Poorly Funded Entrepreneurs to Quit and Get a Job?

by Robert John Stevens, August 31, 2015. Adapted from a text conversation yesterday between my friend Glen and me.

Robert: It is likely that the Powers That Be (PTB) jumped in and saved the stock market last week. When economic collapse hits, it may not be safe to live in any area that can’t sustain itself with its own food production.

Glen: Now may be a good time to have a steady salary especially if things get rough and no one buys companies or technology for awhile (like 2001-2 and 2008-9). I have no crystal ball. I just see the world getting darker. Even religious leaders seem to feel that way. They say things like “fasten your seatbelt; it’s going to get a little bumpy out there.”

Robert: Hiring freezes will make it even harder to find paid employment. Time is running out to go beyond food storage and become self-sufficient from one’s own property; however, resolve overcomes discouragement.

Glen: That’s what makes entrepreneurs special. We have vision and passion to stick with our dream!

As the storm clouds close in, history will forget us if we yield to common sense.

Robert: As the storm clouds close in, history will forget us if we yield to common sense. Can you name any Mormon pioneers who turned back?

Glen: None. That’s why we have the blessings we do.

Senator Rand Paul, Robert John Stevens and Ashley Stevens

Yesterday, my daughter Ashley and I attended an event in Orem, Utah. We stood in a packed room with Caucasian mostly men in their thirties and then Senator Rand Paul arrived and addressed us.

Afterwards I bought Rand Paul’s latest book and got in line to have him sign it. When it was my turn I said, “Senator, if you stand up and speak and 20% of people love you, 20% hate you and 60% are undecided, whom do you market to?” He said, “You stand up for what you believe in.” I said, “No, you listen to your love group, record what they like and market those benefits to the swing group.” By then he was already posing with the next person but I had the same discussion with one of his campaign managers named Erin Madsen.

Government’s Role is Not to Protect People Against Themselves

This is an old article but provides wonderful evidence of the improper role of government.

He said new construction still is allowed, but anyone who wants to build must first prove there is no movement on their lot and, second, present a strong engineering design that can handle the forces of nature.

“We try to protect people from themselves,” Jones said. — Owners see their dream homes go slowly downhill

Political Leaders Preserve Hate to Usurp Great Power

Another great, relevant case study found in the Book of Mormon:

6 And now, as the Amalekites were of a more wicked and murderous disposition than the Lamanites were, in and of themselves, therefore, Zerahemnah appointed chief captains over the Lamanites, and they were all Amalekites and Zoramites.

7 Now this he did that he might preserve their hatred towards the Nephites, that he might bring them into subjection to the accomplishment of his designs.

8 For behold, his designs were to stir up the Lamanites to anger against the Nephites; this he did that he might usurp great power over them, and also that he might gain power over the Nephites by bringing them into bondage.

—Book of Mormon,Alma 43:6-8

The scriptural record records the destruction that followed:

37 And the work of death commenced on both sides, but it was more dreadful on the part of the Lamanites, for their nakedness was exposed to the heavy blows of the Nephites with their swords and their cimeters, which brought death almost at every stroke.

—Book of Mormon,Alma 43:37

700 Syrian children crossed European border in just one day

As the U.S. and NATO continue to bomb innocent nations, refuges pour into neighboring countries, upsetting culture, economies and the sovereignty of nations, ushering in the globalists’ agenda for a new world order as prophesied in Ether 8:24-25.
