Letter: Time to right our ship

Based on America's current economic status and some recent research, I'll share following information:- 53 percent of American workers make less than $30,000 per year.- Unemployment among 20-29 year-old group is 13 percent.- The percentage of the American workforce (not counting the military) who are employed has been declining every year since 2006.- In the past 12 years, over 56,000 U.S. manufacturing facilities have closed their doors.- Major retail chains are expected to close hundreds of stores in 2013: Best Buy, over 200; Sears, over 100; JC Penney, 300 to 350; GameStop, up to 600; RadioShack, as many as 550 stores. The list goes on with more unemployment rising.- Most Americans cannot afford the payments on a new car.- In a leaked memorandum, it was revealed that Wal-Mart sales in February were "a total disaster."- Student loan default rates are at an all-time high ... because graduates can't find good jobs.- One in six Americans is now on food stamps.Put the political rhetoric aside, and recognize that America is in dire straits. The only way to right this ship is for a sincere repentance and spiritual recrudescence unto Jesus Christ in our government and populace. Without this, America will face a horrible future.If current path continues, the dollar will be greatly devalued and there will be high inflation. Many in America will face great poverty and famine. Jesus Christ is the only answer out of our present situation.Michael ImhofAnderson
